San Francisco 49ers

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS HISTORY & INFORMATION

2009 San Francisco 49ers Football Preview:

2009 could be a banner year for the San Francisco 49ers and their Head Coach Mike Singletary. The 49ers head into the season with talent all over their roster. One of the few question marks for San Fran will be the quarterback position where a slew of players will compete for the signal caller job. The QB position will eventually get settled, but what is not in dispute is who will tote the rock for the Niners. Frank Gore returns from his injury and should once again emerge as one of the best backs in the NFC. On defense the 49ers will count on stud linebacker Patrick Willis and emerging LB Manny Lawson. If Singletary can get his defense playing great ball and Gore carries the offense then San Fran fans might start thinking about having a miracle season like the Arizona Cardinals did in 2008.

The San Francisco 49ers play football in the West Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) of the National Football League (NFL). The team was first fielded in 1946 and has a record (tied with the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers) 5 Super Bowls, 4 of which came in the 1980′s with legendary QB Joe Montana at the helm. Who can forget Montana’s incredible drive in the 1981 NFC Championship game against the Dallas Cowboys, and “the Catch” thrown to Dwight Clark in the end zone giving San Francisco the win? The 49ers would see more success in the 1990′s under another legendary QB – Steve Young. The current team looks to rebuild to that level of play in the coming seasons.

The San Francisco 49ers play their home games at Candlestick Park. Opened in 1960, the stadium holds over 70,000 fans. Located at Candlestick Point on the Western Shore of San Francisco Bay, the park has one of the most spectacular locations of any stadium in America. Visitors to a 49ers game get the added bonus of seeing one of the most beautiful cities in the country.
