Recent history suggests 49ers can turn 2-win season around soon

How long will it take for the 49ers to get back to the playoffs after finishing last season at 2-14? If recent history is any indication,AuthenticTedric Thompson Jersey, it could happen before the decade is out.

who haven't been able to get things right, all of them were above .500 within one to three seasons,Here we have a look at the last 10 NFL teams to finish 2-14 and how long it took them to get back to prominence. With the exception of the Rams and the Jaguars, with seven of them reaching that mark in two years or less:

a six-win season,2008 and 2011 St. Louis Rams - 49ers fans will want to hope their team's trajectory isn't like this. The Rams haven't had a winning season since 2003 and haven't had a playoff season since they made it at 8-8 in 2004. Their two-win season in 2008 was sandwiched between a three-win season in 2007 and a one-win season in 2009. They were back at two wins in 2011 after a seven-win season in 2010. Since then it's been three seven-win seasons, and last year's 4-12 season. Things might not turn around this year either.

then in 2010 won the AFC West at 10-6 behind Matt Cassell, Jamaal Charles, Dwayne Bowe,2008 Kansas City Chiefs - This Chiefs team got back to the playoffs within two years. They followed the 2008 season with a four-win season, and Derrick Johnson. They didn't stay up there for long though, Eric Berry, as we'll soon see.

which they turned into Cam Newton. They've had three playoff appearances in the past four years,2010 Carolina Panthers - The Panthers took three seasons to turn things around after the 2010 season landed them with the No. 1 pick, although one of them was off a 7-8-1 mark in 2014. The Panthers have been able to stock a talented team but put up a disappointing six wins last season.

the Colts fired their general manager (Bill Polian) and head coach (Jim Caldwell) and also released Manning. They landed the No. 1 overall pick as a result of this season, which they turned into Andrew Luck. Three 11-win seasons in a row followed this one, making the 2011 season the only one in a 13 year span in which the Colts didn't reach 10 or more wins. They've slid back a bit the past two seasons though, albeit a very significant one. The Colts couldn't overcome a season-ending injury to Peyton Manning on offense and weren't very good on defense. After the season,Womens Steve Largent Jersey,2011 Indianapolis Colts - This was a momentary blip on the radar for the Colts,Authentic Russell Wilson Jersey, with back-to-back 8-win showings and no playoff berth.

the Chiefs were back at the bottom once more. They fired head coach Romeo Crennel after this season and replaced him with Andy Reid. They also acquired a quarterback -- Alex Smith from the 49ers. Four straight winning seasons followed,Authentic Richard Sherman Jersey,2012 Kansas City Chiefs - Two years after returning to the playoffs, including three 11-win seasons or more plus a playoff berth.

49ers fans should hope their team doesn't fall into the same pattern as the Jaguars. Jacksonville has had 17 wins total over the past five seasons, with a high of five wins in 2015. They've been able to add some talent in recent years through the draft and in free agency, but this season could give the final answer on the question of whether or not they got the Blake Bortles pick wrong. If that's the case,2012 Jacksonville Jaguars - Like the Rams, they may well be back in the hunt for a quarterback after this season.

with which they selected Jadeveon Clowney. They've had three straight 9-win seasons since then, including two AFC South titles, but they haven't quite been on a level to compete for a Super Bowl run, this has proven to be only a temporary stay at the bottom. The Texans were coming off a 12-win season in 2012 but went through a disastrous 14-game losing streak to end the 2013 season. It resulted in a change at head coach from Gary Kubiak and interim coach Wade Phillips to then-Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien and landed the Texans the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft,2013 Houston Texans - Like the Colts in 2011, in large part due to a lack of quarterback.

but now they seem to have turned the corner. They posted a nine-win season after a six-win season in 2015, and they'll be looking to take the next step this year. Their roster isn't perfect,2014 Tampa Bay Buccaneers - This was the worst of a six-year stretch of losing seasons for the Bucs, but they've come a good distance since 2014.

2014 Tennessee Titans - Like the Bucs, the Titans have turned things around over the past two seasons. They went from two to three wins in 2015 but then jumped to nine wins in 2016 and were pushing for an AFC South title. They've made vast improvements to their roster since 2014 and could be in a position this season to get back to the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

plus they most likely don't have the answer they're looking for at quarterback yet, which is a big key as in several of these instances,Authentic Steve Largent Jersey,Authentic 12th Fan Jersey, the teams in question were able to find their quarterback in the ensuing offseason. So it'll still take some patience -- but just going off what other teams have been able to do, not every situation here is precisely similar to where the 49ers are right now. The 49ers underwent a complete overhaul this offseason and are starting from scratch in many ways,Womens 12th Fan JerseyWomens 12th Fan Jersey,Womens Russell Wilson Jersey,Womens Richard Sherman Jersey,Womens Tedric Thompson Jersey,Granted, maybe the hole isn't as deep as it seemed last year.
