No throwbacks: 49ers will sport traditional road jerseys vs. Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV

Jan 20, 2020 at 10:11 AM--


There was some brief hope that the San Francisco 49ers might be allowed to wear their all-white throwback jerseys when they take the field at Super Bowl LIV to face the Kansas City Chiefs. The players, like cornerback Richard Sherman, had hoped to make a push to do so. That won't be the case, it seems.

San Francisco wore its all-white throwbacks twice this season. The first was during a Week 8 home win over the Carolina Panthers, and the last was during the team's Week 17 road victory over the Seattle Seahawks. There will be no third time.

NBC Sports Bay Area is reporting that the 49ers will sport their traditional road jerseys in Miami.

San Francisco is 2-0 in the Super Bowl while wearing its white road uniforms. The 49ers did so during their first Super Bowl appearance in Super Bowl XVI, when they defeated the Cincinnati Bengals. They did so again in Super Bowl XXIV in a rout of the Denver Broncos.

The 49ers' lone Super Bowl loss came in Super Bowl XLVII against the Baltimore Ravens.

San Francisco is 5-1 this season while wearing its traditional road uniforms.

Several San Francisco 49ers players took part in this week's State of the Franchise event. One of the topics of conversation surrounded the possibility of a Super Bowl hangover. As tough as it is for a Super Bowl champion to claw its way back to the mountaintop, it is even tougher for the runner-up. All too often, that second-place team will regress the next season, but 49ers players don't see that happening with this squad. Why is that? What makes this 49ers team so different from past Super Bowl runner-ups? What makes its players think that they can get back and win it all, this time? "I think it's the guys in our building and the leadership that we have," responded offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey during the conversation with Keiana Martin and Greg Papa. "It's

It's Super Bowl or bust for the San Francisco 49ers, as it probably should be. That's what the team's head coach, Kyle Shanahan, is thinking. That's what his players are thinking. Shanahan recently spoke with team radio voice Greg Papa for the 49ers' State of the Franchise event and shared exactly what his expectations are for the upcoming season. "I know we were good enough to win that Super Bowl, and we didn't," Shanahan said. "And that's something we've got to live with. And that's why the state of the franchise, right now, is we've got to get right back to that moment (in the Super Bowl). 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." Those comments irked Mike Florio of Pro Football
