Walsh to be honored during home opener and throughout the season

Jul 31, 2007 at 10:45 PM--


During an interview on KNBR today, John York stated that Bill Walsh will be honored during two games this season. The first will be a moment of silence during the team's preseason game against the Broncos. The second will be an event that is being coordinated with ESPN and the NFL and will take place during the team's home opener against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football.

This season, the team will wear decals honoring Bill Walsh on the helmets. Coaches will wear the same thing on their sleeves. No word on where Mike Nolan will wear his. Nolan has been allowed to wear suits during the 49ers' home games.

Today was Bill Walsh day in California. York contacted Governor Schwarzenegger yesterday and requested some way to honor Walsh. Schwarzenegger, who had met Walsh before and become a fan of the former 49ers coach, felt that it would be a great way to honor a great man.

We don't know what practices will look like when NFL training camps kick off across the league later this month. The NFL is still trying to figure out how to take precautions and limit interactions amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, it is difficult to do that and prepare for an NFL season. The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) seeks to limit activities that increase the risk of transmission of the virus, and that includes a request that there be no 11-on-11 activities during practices, according to a report from Pro Football Talk.
