Will it really mean anything if the San Francisco 49ers go undefeated for the 2010 preseason?
They could do just that by beating the San Diego Chargers Thursday night at Candlestick at 7 p.m., in a game that will be broadcast live on KPIX Channel 5.
Meaningless? The last time the 49ers went undefeated in the preseason was 1992, Joe Montana's final season as a 49er. All they did that year was put together the NFL's best regular season record and advance to the NFC Championship Game.
Yes, meaningless. The infamous 0-16 2008 Detroit Lions also went 4-0 in that year's preseason.
