49ers season tickets begin arriving ... with no frills

Jul 12, 2009 at 2:16 AM--


Season ticket holders have started receiving their tickets for the upcoming season. Many are reporting that, unlike previous years where tickets would arrive in very nice 49ers themed packaging, their packages only included the tickets themselves with no special frills for those willing to pay the extra cost and commit to the entire year.

In previous years, tickets were accompanied by extras such as DVD's, reading material, stickers, and more. They were also packaged in very nice 49ers themed boxes. It is interesting that no such packaging accompanied this year's batch given the big changes in San Francisco with a new coach and new uniforms.

One 49erswebzone.com member, a season ticket holder for years who spent over $5,000 this year in tickets, states that the tickets did not come in any box and goes on to say "3 of the tickets have an ad on them, Bud Light, Breathe Right and Samsung. They came Priority Mail, USPS. Mine were crammed in my mail box and some of my tickets are bent ... no DVD no stickers no nothing."

Not immune to the horrible economy, the NFL and certain NFL organizations have been looking to cut back on costs. While not officially blamed on the economy, the 49ers have made such moves as telling team employees to take over a week off in early July and reducing the number of open Training Camp practices to 4 this season. Last year, there were 10 sessions open to the public.

One has to wonder what other cost-cutting moves the team will make this season.

Rapoport on 49ers' Brock Purdy: "How is he not the starting quarterback next [season]?"

By David Bonilla

Everyone has been impressed by San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Brock Purdy. It's not just because he was the last overall pick in last year's draft. Purdy has been playing some impressive football. On Saturday against the Seattle Seahawks, in his first-ever NFL playoff game, Purdy finished the game 18-of-30 for 332 yards and three touchdowns, adding four carries for 16 yards and a rushing touchdown in the 41-23 win. The performances over the last seven games are changing the minds of anyone who might have thought Purdy is a fluke. There has been talk of a quarterback battle between Purdy and the former No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, this offseason. One NFL insider even wonders how the rookie quarterback isn't the frontrunner in any battle. "He's done some



Does Kyle Shanahan or Brock Purdy deserve more credit for the 49ers' success this season?

The San Francisco 49ers have been on a tear in the second half of the 2022 NFL season, winning 11 consecutive games, and are currently riding that hot streak into a playoff matchup against the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Divisional round. The reason for their success as of late? While there are certainly several factors, a primary cause has been the elevation of their offense amongst the league's best, especially after quarterback Brock Purdy took over the helm. Over their last seven games, the 49ers are averaging 396.7 yards per game, as well as 34.5 points per game, creating one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL during that period of time. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has done wonders this season, adjusting and winning with his second and
