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.

Do the 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Joe Staley thinks so...and he's not alone

Do the San Francisco 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Former 49ers great, and current analyst, Joe Staley, thinks so. And he's not the only one. Staley went on KNBR's Papa & Lund show on Monday to talk 49ers. In addition to saying Kyle Shanahan will likely go back to Jimmy Garoppolo in two weeks, but that the offense is more exciting with Trey Lance, Staley spent some time talking about the identity of the team. Particularly, the identity of the offense. "What's been shocking to me is that, one of the things, too, has been that stretch zone, but all the play-action roll-outs, that was one of our identities, the keep game. And it hasn't been



Joe Staley: Jimmy Garoppolo will start, but 49ers are more exciting with Trey Lance

Former San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle, Joe Staley, went on KNBR Radio on Monday to discuss the 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals. As expected, the conversation went to the quarterback situation with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance, including who Staley believed would be under center in two weeks when the 49ers play the Indianapolis Colts. "I think he made his decision before the season even started," Staley said on the Papa & Lund show. "If Jimmy's healthy, he's going to be our quarterback this year. They want to use it as a red-shirt year, almost, for Trey this season. I was encouraged." That seemed to be the plan in the offseason, to have Lance sit and learn. Even after the game on Sunday, Kyle Shanahan continued to hold his ground that



49ers-Cardinals Injury Report: Jimmy Garoppolo ruled out for Sunday; George Kittle doubtful

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo did not practice this week and has been ruled "out" for Sunday, which means fans will see rookie Trey Lance in his first career NFL start. Garoppolo suffered a calf injury during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The hope was that he would take part in today's practice and test his right leg. That didn't happen. Tight end George Kittle also did not practice this week and is listed as "doubtful." He is also dealing with a calf injury. It's the same injury that kept him out of practice for most of last week. However, Kittle was able to play this past weekend. We'll have to wait to see if
