Joe Montana and Jerry Rice mosaic made out of 1,326 Rubik’s Cubes

Cube Creators creates mosaics out of Rubik's Cube-like cubes. They do it for fun and for fundraising with all proceeds going towards charity and mission trips.

Their latest project was a pretty impressive one. It is a mosaic of San Francisco 49ers legends Joe Montana and Jerry Rice. The creator, a youth pastor in Clovis, California named Nicholas Bradley, made the mosaic in memory of his father who passed away three years ago. Montana and Rice were favorites of his father.

"I have many MANY fond memories of watching games with him and watching Joe and Jerry perform magic on the field. I remember the Superbowl where Jerry was the MVP and John Taylor caught the winning touchdown with just over 30 seconds left. There was a halftime show that featured 3D glasses provided by Coca Cola. I have SO many memories with my dad around the 49ers," says Bradley.

His dream is to build a mosaic at Levi's Stadium, maybe even within the 49ers Museum.

During Bradley's time-lapse video of him building the mosaic, there are some interesting facts about the two 49ers legends.

  • Montana threw for 35,142 yards which is three more yards for every dot in the mosaic.
  • Rice caught 1,549 passes, which is 223 more passes than cubes in the mosaic.

"They have their Ferrari," said Jerry Rice this morning on 95.7 The Game. The Hall of Fame wide receiver is referring to Trey Lance, the quarterback drafted No. 3 overall by the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night. Rice is excited about the pick and could not believe his ears when it was announced. And, Trey, if you need anything, just give Jerry a call. Rice said that he's already spoken with Lance and is willing to continue working with the young quarterback as he embarks on his NFL journey. Maybe that means hauling in some passes from the newest Niner during pre-game warmups or even on their own. Before the pandemic, Rice would often be in attendance at 49ers home games. "We have a line of communication so he can reach



49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan won't say if team's draft decision has been made

Do the San Francisco 49ers know who they're taking with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft? Possibly, but if they do, they're not going to tell the public before the pick is announced. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters for around 30 minutes on Monday regarding the upcoming draft, which will begin Thursday evening (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT) in Cleveland, Ohio. The main topic of discussion, of course, was what the 49ers will do at pick 3, and where they stand at this point in the process. There have been reports in recent days that the 49ers have made a decision and that they still are debating their decision, but either way, Shanahan wasn't about to give any hints. "So, do we know exactly who we want? Maybe,



McShay: 49ers made the right choice in drafting Trey Lance

By David Bonilla

There were a lot of assumptions leading to the 2021 NFL Draft. Many had the San Francisco 49ers selecting Mac Jones of Alabama with the No. 3 overall pick. It would not have been a popular choice among the fanbase. Most preferred Justin Fields of Ohio State and liked the potentially high ceiling of Trey Lance of North Dakota State. After over a month of rampant speculation, Lance ended up being the selection. Based on the quarterbacks head coach Kyle Shanahan has preferred in the past, most analysts felt Jones would be the pick. Was Lance the correct choice? Obviously, we will have to wait a few years to answer that with any assuredness. Fields ended up going to the Chicago Bears and Jones to the New England Patriots. ESPN analyst Todd McShay was



Kyle Shanahan explains how trading up made things easier for the 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers sat at No. 3 for over a month, and even when they were on the clock, no one was 100 percent sure who they were drafting. We knew it would be a quarterback, but which one? Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch remained secretive throughout the whole process. Imagine how under wraps things would have been had they stayed at No. 12. That's why the 49ers traded up. They didn't want to sneak around in the shadows, evaluating quarterbacks and hoping those prospects didn't talk to anyone about the team's intentions. "At 12, you see two guys on tape, like, 'Man, if any of these guys are there, I for sure would take them,'" Shanahan told Rich Eisen during an interview on the Rich Eisen Show. "And you know
