We've all been there: It sucks to see another team win the Super Bowl when you feel like yours had the best season, and was the most capable. I, for one, was bitter about Super Bowl 43 after the Giants' great regular season. But...this Niners Nation post is a little absurd. Say what you will about some of BBV's editors' opinions, but at least they're all classy enough to never write something like
"[The Niners were] trumped by the team who was mostly absent. It's like when the slacker in school gets better grades than you, and you studied your tail off. This was a weird season for a lot of reasons, so I'm just going to chalk this Super Bowl up to that. Let's see how things differ next year with a full offseason in place."
I mean, seriously? How can you purport to be a sports journalist, or even an editorialist, if you act so entitled? Especially when that 13-3 record came out of the woeful NFC West.
Hats off to the Niners for putting together a great season, and for being a fun team to watch in those close games. But it's the Giants that won five straight elimination games and then won it all. Good luck to Bay Area fans in 2012.
