Dec 20, 2019 at 7:42 PM--


The NFL continues to reveal its NFL 100 All-Time Team, and most recently named the 10 head coaches of the centennial squad. The legendary Bill Walsh was, of course, among the head coaches.

The late Walsh coached the 49ers from 1979 until 1988 and brought three Super Bowl championships (XVI, XIX, XXIII) to San Francisco. He was twice named NFL coach of the year (1981, 1984) and was part of the NFL 1980s All-Decade Team.


Walsh boasted an all-time winning percentage of .609, owned a 92-59-1 record, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 1993. He passed away in 2007 at the age of 75.

The NFL 100 All-Time Team is made up of a roster of 100 players and 10 coaches deemed "the greatest" at their respective positions. NFL Network is unveiling the roster over six-weeks. A 26-person voting panel made up of coaches, team executives, former players, and members of the media are deciding who makes it onto the NFL 100 All-Time Team.

The other nine coaches named to the NFL 100 All-Time Team are Bill Belichick, Paul Brown, Joe Gibbs, George Halas, Curly Lambeau, Tom Landry, Vince Lombardi, Chuck Noll, and Don Shula.

Two San Francisco 49ers players were named to their first NFL All-Pro team. One is third-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel, one of the most dynamic players in the game. The second is the team's nine-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle, Trent Williams. Both were first-team selections. Until now, Williams, a first-round draft pick in 2010, has gone his entire career without being named to an All-Pro team, which may be difficult to believe. On Thursday, a reporter asked the veteran tackle what it would mean to finally be named an All-Pro. "I think it would feel good, finally," Williams responded. "It sucks because I can't let it define my career because I've never made it. If I felt like that's what I needed to define my career, then anything I've done up to

The San Francisco 49ers are playoff bound once again after a thrilling overtime victory against the Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers trailed 17-0 late in the second quarter but came away with three points to end the half. With the 49ers dealing with their quarterback situation all season, fans were hollering to see Trey Lance after the Niners laid an egg in that first half. Like head coach Kyle Shanahan has done all season though, he stuck with his guy Jimmy Garoppolo, and he would lead the 49ers to one of their most exciting victories to date. San Francisco would answer back with a 75-yard scoring drive after halftime, a forded punt on the Rams ensuing possession, and another scoring drive to tie the game at 17. The defense came up huge with two turnovers in the second half, one

He also punted twice with an average of 45 yards, including one downed inside the 20-yard line.
