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.

Cowherd: It's time for the 49ers to go 'all in' with Trey Lance

On Thursday, FanSided national reporter Matt Lombardo tweeted out that the San Francisco 49ers are "continually underwhelmed" by Trey Lance. While most quickly dismissed the report, given the team's consistent praise of the second-year quarterback, Colin Cowherd offered a reaction on his FS1 show. The longtime host believes it's time for the 49ers to answer their doubters and go "all in" on their young quarterback. I have heard that the #49ers' staff has been continually underwhelmed by Trey Lance …



Why the 49ers drafted a running back in the third round

By Rohan Chakravarthi

With their first 2022 NFL Draft selection not coming until No. 61 overall, the San Francisco 49ers were required to remain patient without a first-round selection for the first time in the Lynch-Shanahan era due to last year's trade-up to select quarterback Trey Lance with the third overall pick. With that first selection, the 49ers took USC edge rusher Drake Jackson, who some analysts considered a fringe first-round talent, making it shocking that he was still available near the end of the second round. However, with their second selection at pick No. 93, the 49ers surprised many, drafting LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price, who not only was a player at a position of low value, but also a player projected to go potentially one or two rounds later. So, why did



Are the 49ers mending their relationship with WR Deebo Samuel?

Late Wednesday night, San Francisco 49ers fans sighed in relief as wide receiver Deebo Samuel reportedly followed the team on Instagram once again, which could be a sign that the relationship is getting back on track. Samuel, who scrubbed his account of everything 49ers related on April 7th, which was around the time of his reported trade request, was not moved during the draft as the 49ers stayed firm with their decision despite fielding multiple offers for the star receiver. Now, almost a month later, Samuel has re-followed the team, once again utilizing his power of social media to express his
