49ers reveal new fan-favorite throwback uniforms at the annual State of the Franchise event

During the annual State of the Franchise event, the 49ers finally revealed their much-anticipated red throwback uniforms, which they will debut in the upcoming NFL season.

The jerseys, first hinted at in March, will come during the 75th anniversary of the football team, which will be an exciting element, especially with fans returning to stadiums for the 2021-2022 NFL season.

The 49ers plan to wear the jerseys six times this season, with four being at home and two on the road.

Those matchups are certainly some of the most important on the schedule: Week Three against Green Bay, Week Seven against Indianapolis, Week 10 against the Rams, Week 12 at Seattle, Week 15 against Atlanta, and Week 16 at Tennessee.

With fans coming back to Levi's Stadium for the 2021 NFL season, the 49ers will debut the jerseys in their first home game, which will be on Sunday Night Football as well.

Earlier this offseason, photos leaked of what looked to be an officially licensed Nick Bosa red 49ers throwback jersey, sparking speculation on whether these jerseys would be released sometime this season for the team's 75th anniversary.

The leaked photos showed the red variants of the uniforms, which are patterned after those worn by the last championship team during the 1994 season. Those throwbacks were actually a modernized version of the uniforms worn by the Niners in 1955.

Now, pictures of the jerseys have been released by the team, marking the long-awaited appearance of the red throwbacks.

Team president Al Guido added fuel to the fire earlier this month when asked about potentially bringing out the throwback jerseys during an appearance on 95.7 The Game.

"The best I can say right now is we've got a lot coming for the 75th anniversary," Guido responded, hinting that the fan-favorite uniforms might be part of the plans.

The reveal marks another milestone that the 49ers accomplished during the pandemic, adding to an impressive offseason.

'I just got to step up to the plate': New 49ers starting cornerback Deommodore Lenoir on his new role

A lot of newer young players will need to step up to the plate in order to fill the void left in the once potent 49ers' secondary after former starting cornerback Jason Verrett went down for the season with a torn ACL. Even prior to the heart-breaking loss in arguably the most important defensive unit this season, the secondary depth, especially the cornerback, was a red flag. Behind Verrett was an injured Emmanuel Moseley and two unproven rookie cornerbacks, who had size and skill concerns as they were taken after the first two rounds, not a great place to invest in a premium position. Fifth-round rookie Deommodore Lenoir however, has been a very pleasant surprise for San Fransisco, at least through preseason and Week 1 of the NFL season. Lenoir allowed a 0.0 passer rating

Should 49ers fans be concerned about Brandon Aiyuk returning punts?

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers pared down their roster this week, making multiple cuts and moves. There were a few surprises, but for the most part, things went as expected. One question that remains, however, is who will be returning punts? Most believe second-year wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk would be the most effective punt returner. He did it in college, and has game-breaking ability. But do you really want one of your star wideouts returning punts, and increasing his chances of being injured? Head coach Kyle Shanahan addressed the topic this week. In an interview with
