49ers will wear black jerseys against Vikings, Cardinals

Sep 7, 2015 at 10:33 PM--


Earlier today, it was revealed that the San Francisco 49ers would debut their black alternate jerseys during their opener on Spetember 14 against the Minnesota Vikings at Levi's Stadium.

This evening, the 49ers announced that the second and final appearance of the team's alternate jerseys would be on November 29 against the Arizona Cardinals, also to be played at Levi's Stadium.

Teams are only allowed to wear alternate uniforms two times a year. Per league rules, helmets cannot be changed during the season.

The new uniforms themselves have been heavily scrutinized among the fans and media with people mostly either loving or hating them. There has not been much indifference. They have been called everything from intimidating to abominations. It is a big change from the team's traditional and well-known red jerseys.

The debut back in April even prompted the Oakland Raiders to poke fun at the 49ers' new duds.

The uniforms were a collaborative effort between the team and the players themselves. Quarterbacks have been wearing similar jerseys during practices for some time and players were always fond of them.

Back in April, head coach Jim Tomsula was asked about the new jerseys and said, "I told the O-line and D-line, 'You'll look thin.'"

One NFL insider suggests that particular interview may not have gone as well as Shanahan might expect or Saleh might have hoped. "Saleh did not do very well in the Detroit interview, I was told. And is not a shoo-in to get the job," Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle said during a radio interview with SportsTalk 790's Adam Clanton and Adam Wexler (via

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic this week and was once again asked about the team's quarterback situation. Now, this was all before the buzz surrounding Deshaun Watson's disappointment in the Houston Texans and the potential trade talk that ensued. Hence, the focus was on the possibility that the 49ers might look to the first round of the draft to bolster the quarterback position. Kawakami, as part of the interview on his podcast, The TK Show, asked Lynch if the 49ers might consider using their top pick on one of the highly-touted incoming rookie signal-callers. "We certainly could," Lynch responded while
