Are you new to sports fandom/discourse? This is nothing new or surprising. The more success anyone has, the higher the standard, and the more hyperbolic the questions become following defeat. This is what you get when 3 hours of game time is all anyone has to talk about the other 165 hours a week between games. The Niners are still a team to beat, and the other 31 teams are more than capable of doing so. "Any given Sunday" is an adage I've learned to live by during my +30 years of 49ers fandom, and have learned to take criticism in stride. ONE team has gone undefeated and won a Super Bowl, and ONE team has gone undefeated and lost a Super Bowl, so given the nearly 60 years of the Super Bowl era, that tells us that by far and away, no team wins every game. 2 losses following a string of substantial success is not the end of the world nor a reason to question a team's credibility. I mean with a record of 5-2, our two losses total a single touchdown; that's not bad given we handed out our far share of double-digit victories over teams who don't have a comparable record.What the last game taught me, as a 49ers fan, was to stop following football discourse. We win 4 games in a row, we're unstoppable juggernauts! MVP of all time for Brock Purdy! CAN THIS MAN BE STOPPED?!
Lose two games in a row "The 49ers are frauds. They were never that good. Brock Purdy's been getting lucky."
