49ers will ‘make a push’ to wear all-white throwbacks vs. Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV

Jan 19, 2020 at 9:38 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers will be the away team when they take the field in two weeks against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs will likely don their red home jerseys at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami for the big game, forcing the 49ers to wear their white away jerseys.

Which white ones, though?

The 49ers are making a push to wear their all-white throwbacks for the third time this season, according to a report by David Lombardi of The Athletic. San Francisco last wore the uniforms during their Week 17 road victory over the Seattle Seahawks and, before that, in a Week 8 home win over the Carolina Panthers.

There's just one roadblock. Cornerback Richard Sherman told Lombardi that the NFL wouldn't allow it. While it was initially reported that NFL teams could wear alternate jerseys up to three times a season, Sherman says the Niners had to get an exception to do so in that Week 17 matchup. They would require another for Super Bowl LIV.

The uniforms are replicas of those worn by the last 49ers team to win a Super Bowl — the 1994 squad that beat the San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX.

The 49ers secured a trip to the Super Bowl in Miami after beating the Green Bay Packers 37-20 at Levi's Stadium in the NFC Championship Game.

The 49ers hope the NFL allows the team to wear the player- and fan-favorite uniforms as San Francisco tries to secure its sixth Lombardi Trophy.

Despite spending some time as division foes before the NFL realigned the NFC West, the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints aren't exactly rivals. A few more games like the Week 14 nail-biter last season could change that. Whoever is running the 49ers' social media account might want to ignite something, judging by an impressively clever tweet on Thursday. The post was meant to remind fans to wear masks during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which threatens the 2020 NFL season and sports in general. And that individual did so while taking a shot at the Saints. Be a saint. Grab a face mask.

A new scripted series based on the high school life of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is headed to streaming giant Netflix, according to Vanity Fair. Titled Colin in Black & White, the six-episode series is being created by Kaepernick and Oscar-nominated director Ava DuVernay. It will explore the "foundation of Kaepernick's budding activism," reports Vanity Fair. That, of course, led to the controversy in 2016 when Kaepernick started peacefully protesting against social injustice during the national anthem before NFL games. "Too often we see race and Black stories portrayed through a white lens," Kaepernick said in

The team came just short of achieving its goal last season and hopes to finish the job during the 2020 season. Players were asked about the goal for the upcoming season. While he understands the journey will be difficult, head coach Kyle Shanahan has already stated that his expectations are to get back to the point where the team stumbled, and right that wrong. "We've got to get right back to that fourth quarter, and get to have a lead, and we've got to finish the job," Shanahan said this week. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk
