We suppose statistics are just that, but the odds of the San Francisco 49ers returning to the Super Bowl and winning are 4.34 percent. According to Eric Branch of sfgate.com, Super Bowl losers don't fare well in the following season after a trip to the big game.
The 49ers have 12 selections in the 2013 draft, and expect that total to rise to 15 when the compensation picks are awarded. They are young, deep, and talented, but history has them painted in a corner. Branch writes:
'Of the first 46 Super Bowl losers, two won the big game the next season. The last team to do it: the 1972 Miami Dolphins. So, yes, the 49ers will enter the 2013 season looking to break a 41-year drought.
Well, the 2007 Patriots (18-1) were kind of good. The moral of their fail-to-win-it-all-the-next year story? Don’t have your franchise quarterback shred his knee in Week 1.
Like those Tom-Brady-less Patriots, other recent Super Bowl losers have had their quarterback sustain significant injuries the next season. That list includes:
* The 2004 Eagles (13-3), who played without Donovan McNabb for seven games in ’05.
* The 2002 Raiders (11-5), who didn’t have Rich Gannon for nine games in 2003.
* The 2001 Rams (14-2), who didn’t have Kurt Warner for 10 starts in 2002.
The 49ers, of course, are ordering more bubble wrap for Colin Kaepernick as you read this.'

We mentioned earlier today that the San Francisco 49ers didn’t use the franchise tag on safety Dashon Goldson and that he’ll likely hit the free agent market.
49ers’ fans shouldn’t get their hopes up about him returing because ESPN’s Adam Schefter says that “Goldson’s going to be gone.”
Once again, with Goldson looking for $8 million per season, the 49ers won’t...
According to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson is looking to make $8 million per season once he hits the free agent market next week.
It continues to look like the 49ers aren’t willing to give Goldson the kind of money he’s asking for and I don’t see them using the franchise tag on him for a second straight season.
Randy Moss‘ tenure with the San Francisco 49ers may be short-lived.
Pro Football Talk reported Saturday that the 49ers made it clear at the Combine that they were not intending to bring back Moss next season.
Moss seemed to be disappointed with his lack of playing time, even though he didn’t vocally complain most of the season. Moss said in January that he wants to play another...
A not so cryptic Tweet was sent out by Randy Moss which shows that his career in San Francisco is over, but will his time in the NFL also be over? We love the wide receiver, but would hate to see the big fella spend another year on in the NFL not being productive.
According to ESPN:
Moss had 28 receptions for 434 yards and three touchdowns in 2012 for the NFC champion 49ers. He...

According to ProFootballTalk.com, the San Francisco 49ers were making it clear at the NFL Scouting Combine that they don’t plan on bringing back wide receiver Randy Moss for next season.
This isn’t a surprise at all. Moss made it clear that he wasn’t happy with his role with the 49ers last season and let’s be honest, he’s not the player he once was.

Randy Moss, part of the 49ers NFC Championship team this past season, has seemingly hinted that IF he returns for another season in 2013, it won’t be with San Francisco. The Niners have also made it clear, according to a league source at profootballtalk.com, that the team wasn’t interested in bringing Moss back.
For the most part, the usually vocal Randy Moss was silent for much...
49ers receiver Randy Moss is about to hit the free agent market. He’ll be looking for a team this offseason to give him that “straight cash, homie.” But the Niners likely aren’t going to be that team.
It looks like both sides don’t really want to be homies anymore.
