I was listening to Sirius NFL Radio last night. And they were talking about what a disadvantage it was for west coast teams to travel and play east coast teams with an early start time. Bob Poppa and Shannon Sharpe were the commentators. Sharpe was saying that it was the early start time and the travel as the main reason that many west coast teams lost. But Poppa disagreed and stated the reason was really only because the west coast teams are just sorry. He then mentioned that the 80's niners teams never had any trouble travelling to the east coast and coming out with a win. As a matter of fact he said, they hold the all time road winning streak which stands at 18. I couldn't believe that stat.. 18!!!. They said that the streak lasted from 1988 to 1990. I really could not believe that stat. This fact along with the super bowl wins convinced me that the 1980's 49ers were the greatest team of all time. It's hard enough to win on the road but to win 18, truly an amazing statistic.
