The 31st team in this 32-part series for Yahoo! Sports. Check out the entire piece on this link.
In 2011, head coach Jim Harbaugh took over the San Francisco 49ers, led them to their first winning season since 2002 and got them to the NFC title game.
Last season, Harbaugh and company reached Super Bowl XLVII. But the game was in New Orleans and not Philadelphia, and so much for "brotherly love" as John Harbaugh's Baltimore Ravens prevailed 34-31.
The logical progression says the Niners get to Super BowlXLVIII and win it. However, it's also worth noting that the last team to lose the Super Bowl and win it the following season was the 1972 Miami Dolphins.
