Product Description:
Three teams have won 5 Super Bowls. The San Francisco 49ers were the first to do it. In 1981, just 2 years after finishing with a 2 and 14 record, Head Bill Walsh's "West Coast Offense" fueled the 49ers victory over the Bengals in Super Bowl XVI. By 1984, the 49ers were a dominant team, becoming the first team ever to win 15 games in the regular season. They finished the seaon by defeating the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XIX. Four years later, Joe Montana led San Francisco on a desperate 92 yard drive, tossing the winning touchdown pass to John Taylor with 34 seconds left in Super Bowl XXIII. In 1989, Walsh retired from coaching, replaced by George Seifert and the 49ers never missed a beat. San Francisco won 14 games plus two playoff victories that year and scored a record 55 points in the 49ers complete dismantling of the Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV. In 1994, the 49ers won their 5th Super Bowl, this time behind Quarterback Steve Young. Young, who had lived in Joe Montana's shadow, burst into the spotlight and tossed a record six touchdown passes as San Francisco defeated San Diego 49-26 in Super Bowl XXIX. The story of San Francisco's 1981 season is told by Wide Receiver Dwight Clark, Offensive Lineman, Randy Cross and Hall of Fame Defensive Back, Ronnie Lott. 1984 is relived through the remembrances of Tight End Russ Francis, Linebacker Keena Turner and Defensive Back Dwight Hicks. Hall of Fame Head Coach, Bill Walsh, Offensive Tackle Harris Barton and Running Back Roger Craig recount the 49ers season of 1988. George Seifert, Fullback Tom Rathman and future Hall of Fame Receiver, Jerry Rice reminisce about the 1989 season. And Hall of Fame Quarterback, Steve Young, Defensive Back Merton Hanks and Tight End Brent Jones tell viewers what it was like to be a member of the first 5-time Super Bowl winners.

Brock Purdy has just completed his second NFL season, which means he's under contract with the San Francisco 49ers for two more years. The team is allowed to begin negotiating a contract extension after the 2024 season. With a salary cap hit of around $1 million next season, Purdy's contract provides the 49ers with some flexibility, allowing them to allocate funds elsewhere on the roster.
