San Francisco 49ers Details

The San Francisco 49ers claim one of the greatest runs in professional sports. From 1981 to 1995, the Niners won five Super Bowls. Think of the great NFL players of all time; chances are a handful are from the 80s-90s Niners.

San Francisco was foggy before the Niners hired Bill Walsh. After a 2-14 season, the Niners recruited Walsh, who had an astute eye for talent and was a proponent of the West Coast Offense. The West Coast Offense valued the slant and the run, favoring short passes to chip away the clock and wear down defenses.

Joe Montana was perfect for the system. Montana famously came back in the Cotton Bowl, in an ice storm, with the flu, to win for his Notre Dame team with a TD in the final play. Montana was deemed “the Comeback Kid.” And the Niners thirsted for such poise.

It was beautiful from the jump. In 1981, Montana’s second season, the Niners redeemed a decade of playoff losses to the Dallas Cowboys, coming back in the final four minutes to earn the right to compete in Super Bowl XVI versus the Cincinnati Bengals. Don’t let the score fool you, the Niners dominated the first half and coasted to their first ring, 26-21.

The Niners bulldozed the competition in 1984. After a 15-1 season, the Niners beat the New York Giants, 21-10, and shut out the Chicago Bears 23-0. Montana’s 49ers defeated Dan Marino’s Miami Dolphins 38-16. Marino is considered the greatest quarterback to never win a Super Bowl. Thank, or blame, San Francisco for that.

Could it get any better? Yes. In 1985, the Niners traded up to steal Jerry Rice from the Cowboys with the 16th overall pick. In 1986, Montana injured a spinal disk and was out for the season. In 1987 Walsh traded for young QB Steve Young, then a Tampa Bay Buccaneer.

Montana, true to form, bounced back. After a rocky start, hovering around .500, the Niners united to run the table. Super Bowl XXIII met the Bengals again. The Bengals appeared perched for the win. Three minutes on the clock. Down 16-13. On their own 8-yard line against a prime defense. Montana delivered one of the best drives in Super Bowl history, winding the clock down across 92-yards. 20-16, Niners. Ring three.

Montana and Rice peaked in 1989. Rice collected 17 touchdowns in Montana’s MVP season. Lombardi number four came handily; San Francisco manhandled the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV, 55-10.

The Montana era ended with Young finally taking the reins and Montana being traded off to the Kansas City Chiefs. In 1994, Young capped the 49ers Golden Age with a never-out-of-question defeat of the San Diego Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX, 49-26. The Niners, in a few short years, catapulted to the top of NFL postseason glory.

The dominance was not over. While the franchise did not achieve quite the same level of success, Colin Kaepernick’s Niners came very close in Super Bowl XLVII. Over the course of its history, the NFL team in San Francisco has established itself as a consistent playoff contender.
