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.

Texans bound? 49ers' DeMeco Ryans reportedly eliminates Broncos from contention

By David Bonilla

It looks like it might be Houston or bust for DeMeco Ryans. One day after the San Francisco 49ers' heartbreaking loss in the NFC Championship Game, the defensive coordinator informed the Denver Broncos that he was no longer interested in their head coaching job. Ryans has emerged as the favorite for the Texans' heading coaching job. Ryans started his NFL career in Houston, playing linebacker there during his first six NFL seasons. "He is considered to be the favorite," NFL insider Ian Rapoport said Monday morning on NFL Network's Good Morning Football. "The Denver Broncos, who also had significant interest in DeMeco Ryans after interviewing him, they have received indication that his attention is headed elsewhere. Houston, of course, where he played. A



Orlovsky defends not having 49ers legend Joe Montana among his top-5 all-time QBs

I want to preface this by stating that I enjoy Dan Orlovsky's breakdowns and often find him insightful. However, the ESPN analyst presented a hot take this week that is sure to attract its share of scrutiny. It even did so among Orlovsky's ESPN colleagues. It's difficult to forget that time David Carr tried, much to the astonishment of his NFL Network colleagues, to explain why Joe Montana wasn't a top-10 quarterback of the Super Bowl era. The analyst was, unsurprisingly, bombarded with criticism for making such a highly-debatable statement. Orlovsky finds himself in a similar situation, throwing out his own version of the take when it comes to his top five



Analyst and former All-Pro O-lineman: "Jimmy Garoppolo is just an injury-prone quarterback"

By David Bonilla

Mike Silver of the San Francisco Chronicle took a stab at defending Kyle Shanahan and his play calling from fans and media who place at least part of the blame for the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback injuries on the shoulders of the head coach. It's a fascinating read. Silver argues that the quarterback woes have more to do with poor luck than Shanahan unnecessarily putting his signal-callers in harm's way. Whether or not you want to accept Silver's stand on the situation is up to you. The topic has created much debate among the fanbase, but it is a discussion for another day. One thing was made clear this week. Jimmy Garoppolo, the

The end of the 2022 season brings a whole new set of questions for the San Francisco 49ers -- questions that will start to get answered in the weeks and months ahead after looming large in the locker room following their NFC Championship loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The 49ers have a number of players slated for free agency and will have to make some tough decisions on who will stay and who will go. Two of those players -- offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey and defensive back Jimmie Ward -- spoke about their futures on Sunday while also reflecting on their time with the 49ers. We'll talk about what McGlinchey and Ward said Sunday, as well as a number of other topics in this version of 49ers Notebook. We'll also dive into what happened to Nick Bosa
