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.

Rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk finished Sunday's game with seven catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. It wasn't nearly enough, though, to help carry his San Francisco 49ers to a victory over the heavily-favored New Orleans Saints. Still, the rookie continues to impress Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice. "He was killing it yesterday," Rice said Monday morning on 95.7 The Game's The Morning Roast. "... He got his fifth touchdown (receiving and rushing)." The play Aiyuk scored off of looked familiar to Rice. "I have scored off that Sprint Right Option so many, many times," Rice explained. "What happens is, the second you come in motion, it determines if it's going to be man-to-man or it's going to be zone. If the guy goes with you, you

Can the San Francisco 49ers pass the football deep downfield? Are they capable of it? Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice wonders that. A lot of fans wonder that too. The team certainly doesn't take a lot of deep shots against opposing defenses. They took one on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, though, and it did not go well. Wide receiver Richie James had Saints safety Marcus Williams beat deep. Niners quarterback C.J. Beathard, out of the shotgun, threw the football toward the open receiver. "Toward." As in, in the direction of but not on target. Beathard underthrew the football, and San Francisco, once again, missed out on a big opportunity. It was Beathard's only snap of the game. According to head coach Kyle

The Rams still have their Monday-night game to play, and the Niners are coming off a bye week. The two NFC West rivals will clash on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. "They have to look at that game — and I'm calling it right now — that game is a playoff game, guys," Rice told the hosts of The Morning Roast. "That's the way the Niners gotta look at that game coming up." Rice believes the bye week may do the 49ers some good, allowing head coach Kyle Shanahan to work on certain tendencies and techniques to improve at several position
