Well, since then, 14 groups have gained a Super Bowl, and the Niners haven’t been certainly one of them.

But the Kansas City Chiefs marched down the sphere to tie the sport with three seconds to go.
The Niners even had an time beyond regulation lead by kicking a area purpose on their first possession of the interval, and wanted a cease on 4th and 1 – however Patrick Mahomes transformed a primary down, after which a couple of extra to finally hit Mecole Hardman for the championship-winning landing.
But the drought has continued with what appears to be a curse of their head coach in Kyle Shanahan.

Four years in the past, the Niners had a fourth-quarter, 10-point lead in opposition to these similar Chiefs – however Kansas City gained Super Bowl LIV, 31-20.
“There’s no right words right now,” Shanahan stated after the sport. “It hurts, everybody understands that. We knew it hurt if it came to this, but just proud of our guys.
“They put themselves on the market, they performed their tails off, they performed by plenty of stuff. It’s one thing we have gotta stay with, however I do know it is one thing we will deal with. We’re all fairly disillusioned proper now. But if I’m gonna lose with anybody, I wish to lose with these guys.”
