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.

49ers rookie Brandon Aiyuk discusses the frustration of being sidelined vs. Packers

By David Bonilla
Nov 13, 2020

San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk spent last week on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Because of the shortened week due to a Thursday-night game against the Green Bay Packers, Aiyuk didn't have enough time to be cleared to play. He was cleared the next morning, though. Of course, San Francisco had already suffered a 34-17 defeat. Aiyuk and two others were sidelined due to close contact with wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, who tested positive for the virus — and did so again this week before being cleared again today. Aiyuk and the others — Deebo Samuel and Trent Williams — never actually tested positive for COVID-19. Williams has already

By Chris Wilson

After jumping out to a 10-point lead and knocking QB Drew Brees out of the game, the 49ers went "No Gas, All Brakes" in their 27-13 loss to the Saints. The San Francisco 49ers had an opportunity to stun the New Orleans Saints after jumping out to a quick lead, but a combination of turnovers, a lackluster offensive performance, and abysmal special teams play allowed the Saints to cruise to an easy victory over a mostly disinterested Niners team and coaching staff. Head coach Kyle Shanahan reached his Promised Land -- the team's annual bye week --
