The San Francisco 49ers’ winning streak came to an unceremonious end at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles, who march towards the Super Bowl with a 31-7 victory. After Brock Purdy suffered an early injury, the team was left to rely almost entirely on Christian McCaffrey and their defense, and it... did not go well. The Eagles simply overwhelmed the Niners and ran away with the game. Seeing the rival Bay Area team get blown out in the NFC Championship is great, but seeing them lose their second consecutive Conference Championship is sublime.

The 49ers traded three firsts, a second, two thirds, a fourth, and a fifth - for two players who were unable to complete a single pass in the most important game of the season.— Tyler, like Lockett (@TylerjAlsin) January 29, 2023

Wasting a timeout early in the 1st quarter is quite literally the best time to waste a timeout. https://t.co/iVZ2ZaTHqx— Mookie Alexander, Unofficially (@mookiealexander) January 29, 2023

It has been 10,227 days since the 49ers last won a Super Bowl.— John P Gilbert (@JohnPGilbertNFL) January 29, 2023
That Super Bowl win came 9,324 days after the Apollo moon landing.
Meaning that Super Bowl win was XLVIII% of the way from the day of the moon landing until today.

Needless to say, Niners fans and former players were less than happy... about a lot of things.
Just dont know about some of these calls. Maybe in the Reg season but the playoffs they let them play. Ticky tack illegal contact.— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) January 29, 2023

No way the 49ers could have won this game with a broken Brock Purdy and a concussed 4th string QB.— John Chapman (@JL_Chapman) January 29, 2023
But this is by far the worst officiated game I have ever seen in the NFL.
Sucks that the fans didn't get the game they disserved.
I saw a player beat his man and then held before getting shoved into the punter, but that’s just me I guess.— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) January 29, 2023
But I think we all know what really happened:
Maybe if the 49ers stop committing penalties, the refs would stop calling them.— Brandan Schulze (@SeaHawkersPod) January 29, 2023
Meanwhile, Geno Smith is just generally being a good guy.

Also, this might be the one time I am okay with Aaron Donald trolling.
Plus, former Seahawks legend Greg Olsen was on point and had a good day, for what that is worth.
