And he hadn’t really experienced failure.
San Francisco went 24-7-1 during Miller’s first two seasons in the league. This year, he and his teammates have endured two separate two-game losing streaks.
Miller and the 49ers have not lost three straight since Jim Harbaugh took the helm in 2011, and they’re not exactly planning to on “Monday Night Football” in the nation’s capital as part of Week 12 action. Especially not after a 23-20 defeat to the New Orleans Saints in Week 11 that dropped their record to 6-4.
“A penalty here and a catch there and we’re having a different discussion about what a great game we played,” Miller said. “That’s the NFL. There’s a fine line between winning and losing. In the past more so, we have been on the other side of that, the ball bounced our way and we made plays.
“We’re in the running we just have to be opportunistic when they come along.”
Miller, channeling his inner Harbaugh, quoted his coach from a team meeting that took place Wednesday.
“This is a different story, a different season,” he said, “and we’re still writing it.”
