About The San Francisco 49ers
Popularly called the Niners, the San Francisco 49ers are a professional football team that was founded in 1946. While the club’s headquarters and practice facilities are located in Santa Clara, the 49ers play their home games in San Francisco. The team got its name from the gold rushers who flocked to California in the late 1840s. The 49ers wear jerseys of scarlet and gold. Beginning in 1946 as a charter member of the All-American Football Conference, they joined the National Football League in 1950. At present, they are members of the Western Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the NFL.
Beginning their journey rather modestly, the 49ers established themselves as a power to reckon with in the 1980s and 1990s. During this period, they won five Super Bowl Championships - Super Bowls XVI, XIX, XXIII, XXIV, and XXIX - in 1981, 1984, 1988, 1989 and 1994. The first ever team to set such a record, the 49ers now share this honor with the Dallas Cowboys and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Because of their spectacular success of winning four Super Bowls in that decade, the 49ers were called The Team of the Eighties. The 49ers also have the best record in the Super Bowl with no losses.
During those glorious years, the 49ers had some great individual stars as well as a strong team which made them such a formidable force. While they were enjoying this purple patch, the team could boast of such hugely talented players as running back Roger Craig, wide receiver Jerry Rice, defensive end Fred Dean, and quarterbacks Joe Montana and Steve Young. Among their earlier stars were Hall of Fame members quarterback Y. A. Tittle, and running backs Joe “The Jet” Perry, and Hugh McElhenny.
The team went through an extremely lean patch between 1973-1978, and the team reached it’s nadir in 1978 when they finished the year 2-14.
In 1979 new head coach Bill Walsh, and rookie quarterback Joe Montana ushered in a golden era in the history of the 49ers. Walsh won coach of the year award for steering San Francisco to 13 regular season wins and a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl XVI. A last minute touchdown pass from Montana to Dwight Clark was instrumental in carrying the 49ers into the Super Bowl resulting in an NFC championship, and has now become a part of football history as “The Catch.”
The club has witnessed some unsavory and tragic incidents in the recent past. In May 2005, a controversial video scandal led to the dismissal of the team’s public relations director, Kirk Reynolds. In August 2005, OL Thomas Herrion died immediately following a pre-season loss to the Denver Broncos. In 2005, the 49ers finished 4th in the NFC West for the second consecutive year.
