Leaked photos create speculation that 49ers might wear throwbacks for 75th anniversary season

Mar 8, 2021 at 8:38 AM--

San Francisco 49ers president Al Guido recently stated that the team has some surprises in store for fans during the upcoming season. After all, it is the team's 75th anniversary. Will one of the surprises be a blast from the past when it comes to the game-day uniforms?

Following the leak of the Cincinnati Bengals' new uniforms, another Twitter user shared photos of the upcoming jerseys for the Chicago Bears and 49ers. It is important to note that the authenticity of these rumors have not been verified, but they are creating some interesting discussion on social media and among news-reporting sites.

Jase Greenberg shared photos of a Nike-branded Nick Bosa 49ers throwback, which is sparking some excitement.

While it's all speculation at this point, the photos could mean players will wear replicas of the fan-favorite throwbacks worn for most of the 1994 season—the last time the 49ers won a Super Bowl. Those throwbacks were actually a modernized version of the uniforms worn by the Niners in 1955.

San Francisco's players have worn the road white versions of those throwbacks during select games since 2018 as an alternative to their regular jerseys. They replaced the often-criticized all-black alternates the team introduced in 2015, which were worn five times during games. While many fans liked them, the red-on-black color scheme often made properly identifying players on the field somewhat challenging for broadcast viewers or the media sitting in the press box.

The upcoming season could be the first time fans see the red home versions of the throwbacks uniforms since Super Bowl XXIX.

It is unknown if Levi's Stadium will host fans this year. Although, Guido sounds optimistic that will happen. The 49ers recently created a medical advisory committee of leading Bay Area public health experts to explore the safe return to Levi's Stadium.

"I'm confident that with the leadership group ... we'll put the right measures in place to make sure that we can have fans when we kick back off in August and September. So I feel really good about it," Guido recently said on 95.7 The Game, via Niners Wire.

Draft analyst calls Mac Jones-to-49ers speculation 'very premature'

Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network is well-informed when it comes to pre-draft chatter around the league. The draft analyst hears all of the Mac Jones-to-49ers speculation, with many proclaiming the scenario as a near-lock. Pauline wants everyone to pump the brakes on that a bit because he doesn't see it as the certainty that many others would lead you to believe it is. "People, I think, are just under the assumption of belief that it's a foregone conclusion that [the San Francisco 49ers are] going to take Mac Jones with that third pick in the draft," Pauline told Trey Wingo on a recent podcast (h/t to Patrick Tulini). "I'm told that's not the case at all. There are some things that they're looking at with Mac Jones

Yates: Holding onto Jimmy Garoppolo this season makes sense for 49ers

No matter who the San Francisco 49ers select at No. 3 overall later this month, the speculation surrounding the future of Jimmy Garoppolo will heat up. Right now, the plan is to hold onto the veteran quarterback, allowing the rookie to sit and learn in his first year. Still, there will be those who believe the 49ers should trade Garoppolo and that his trade value will plummet as soon as his eventual replacement is drafted. Field Yates joined ESPN's Get Up! and explained why it might be in the Niners' best interest to hold onto Garoppolo for the upcoming season, which head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have stated as the plan. "We still plan on him leading us and getting as far as we can with him,"

Jeremiah on 49ers' pick in latest mock draft: 'I am surprised that everything you hear points toward Jones'

With so many smokescreens and teams keeping their strategies close to the vest, it's tough to believe anything you hear when it comes to pre-draft rumors and speculation. Everyone in the media feels the San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot for Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, whether they can make sense of it or not. Much of that is based on what they hear from around the league. Their colleagues and other teams feel Jones might be the pick, despite the overwhelming opinion that the selection would be a reach. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks doesn't even view Jones as worthy of a first-round pick, much less No. 3 overall. "Perhaps the Alabama quarterback is a secret member of The Avengers, operating like Tony Stark as Iron Man,"
