49ers end zones get a throwback look for Bengals game

Dec 19, 2015 at 2:36 PM--


For Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, it looks like Levi's Stadium may have a bit of a throwback look. Ryan Sakamoto of Ninerfans.com pointed out yesterday that the stadium end zones have taken on a classic 80's look, complete with the return of the Quentin font that was used in the text logos. Many have felt that the classic text logos were always better than the current one, which has adopted the same font that is used for the S and F within the primary logo.

The logo on the 50-yard line remains current. These text logos were used by the team from 1972 through 2004, and would return after that time when the 49ers would wear their throwback uniforms.

Below are some videos that Sakamoto posted of the throwback end zones, which are complete with the classic 49ers and NFC helmets used back then.

"According to sources, the Jets will be looking closely at [Aaron] Rodgers, Jimmy Garoppoloand Derek Carr," wrote Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports. "They won't limit their search to just those three quarterbacks -- and sources stress it's still early in the process --



"Tough way to go out": 49ers reflect on brutal end to magical season

All things being equal, the San Francisco 49ers probably had a decent chance to compete against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, possibly earning a return trip to the Super Bowl. All things didn't end up being equal, though. The Niners entered the NFC Championship Game with Brock Purdy at quarterback. Purdy entered the regular season as QB3. However, an ankle injury to Trey Lance in Week 2, and then a foot injury to Jimmy Garoppolo 11 weeks later, left the 49ers turning to Purdy, a relatively unknown rookie to casual NFL fans, to finish out the season. It turns out Purdy might have been exactly what the 49ers needed. First, he won that December 4 contest against the Miami Dolphins, replacing Garoppolo. Then he proceeded to win the seven starts that followed,
