In the mid 70's the forty niners had hit bottom, but a new owner had arrived, Eddie D, he new little about owning an NFL franchise. NFL ownership is like a club, most of the member get along, and even offer advice. One member suggested Eddie hire one of his past assistants, who was having some luck coaching at Stanford. Al Davis forever linked himself to our glory years, Al Davis was one of footballs greatest minds, from the 60's through the 90's nobody had a better grip on the game. As much as we Niner fans hate the raiders, and their fans, we will always owe a begrudging debt of thanks, to Al Davis, for helping guide Eddie, and the Niners to the promised land, RIP Al Davis, thanks for the coaching tip.
Move this if you must, Al is part of the Niner legend.
