My point is it is easy to have prisoner of the moment syndrome. SF's talent has more to do with where the team picked in the draft for most of the past decade. When the Jets were marching to the AFCG two years ago, the 49ers began the year 0-5 after being the concensus pick to win the division that year. They finished 6-10 in arguably the worst division since the merger between the AFL and NFL -- that was the year, for the first time, a division winner, Seattle, finished with a sub .500 record (7-9). That just illustrates how bad that division was in 2010.
