49ers’ Thursday Night Football Color Rush uniforms will reportedly be all gold

Jun 17, 2016 at 2:27 PM--


On October 6, the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals will face each other at Levi's Stadium on Thursday Night Football. Throughout the 2016 season, every team will wear custom Nike Color Rush uniforms for their Thursday matchups.

Love it or hate it, you probably remember the Color Rush from last season, which was limited to just eight teams during four Thursday night games. Those included the infamous Christmas themed matchup between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets, which confused the heck out of some color blind fans. Then there was the mustards versus the ketchups game between the then St. Louis Rams and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

In April, NFL Leaks (@NFL_Leaks) revealed a preliminary template of the color schemes for all NFL teams. It was never really known how legitimate that leak was, but it spread like wildfire through the media outlets. Today, they revealed an updated chart that shows the color schemes of each team along with their Thursday night matchup listed.


The new chart shows the 49ers wearing all gold, which is the same color scheme as the chart from April. However, their opponent for that game, the Cardinals, are now shown as wearing red. They were previously listed as yellow, which would have made an awkward yellow mustard versus brown mustard game. The 49ers' all gold color scheme would go along with their helmets.

Last season, the 49ers debuted all black uniforms and wore them during two home games. Those uniforms, like the Color Rush, had very mixed reactions from fans. They were dreaded by the media because the red numbers on the black jerseys made player identification very difficult. "It's hard to write a game story when you don't know whether Garrett Celek (88) or Vance McDonald (89) is catching the ball," said Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee during a fan chat this week.

More should be revealed as the season approaches. Good or bad, it will be interesting to see what these uniforms look like. So get ready for brown mustards versus ketchups.

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined the Bussin' with the Boys podcast this week, joined by Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen. Both are in Tennessee for Kittle's Tight End University. Allen is among several quarterbacks on hand to throw footballs to the large contingent of tight ends. During the lengthy conversation on the Barstool Sports podcast, the topic of fanbases came up. Allen has played in front of Bills Mafia his entire career, while Kittle has been among The Faithful. The two groups create very different atmospheres heading into game days, leading Kittle to reflect on his college playing days at



Pro Football Focus gives 49ers QB Mac Jones in 2021 redraft

Remember Mac Jones? Jones is hard to forget for any 49ers fans who followed the buildup to the 2021 NFL Draft. There was an air of mystery surrounding what the 49ers would do once they acquired the third overall pick from the Miami Dolphins, with plenty of speculation over whether or not Jones would be the player they chose after making that trade. But while Jones was coming off a breakout season in leading the University of Alabama to a national championship, many fans weren't enthused with the thought of the 49ers drafting him due in part to the belief he didn't have as high of a ceiling as Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State. The 49ers apparently felt the same, selecting Lance at pick 3 while Jones fell to the New England Patriots

Are their 12 teams in the NFL with better rosters than the San Francisco 49ers? It doesn't seem like there would be, given the team's talent and postseason success in 2022. But in their recent roster rankings for 2022, Pro Football Focus has the 49ers ranked 13th in the league, behind most of last season's playoff field and even a few teams that didn't make the postseason. Much has happened in terms of player movement since Super Bowl LVI, which has shuffled PFF's rankings to look quite a bit different than they might have at the end of last year. The 49ers are the lowest-rated of last season's final four playoff teams,



A 49ers-centric look at the Pro Football Hall of Fame

A trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio is always a worthwhile endeavor for San Francisco 49ers fans, due in large part to how well the team is represented in the museum. Among the magnificent collection of football history on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame are artifacts from a number of 49ers players of yesteryear, as well as a few appearances from players currently on the roster. This year is as good of a year as any for 49ers fans to visit, as one of the team's greatest defensive players, defensive lineman Bryant Young, will become enshrined in the Hall along with seven others when induction ceremonies take place on August 6. So, in addition to the 49ers artifacts permanently on display in the Hall of Fame's collection, Young is separately
