The 49ers: Once Again as Good as Gold?

San Francisco 49ers

In his first season as the head coach of the 49ers, Jim Harbaugh led San Francisco to the brink of the Super Bowl.  Last weekend in Green Bay the Niners proved they may be even better this year, and already, their fans are dreaming of another run of championships like the dynastic cycle that resulted in San Francisco capturing 4 titles in an 8 year period during the 1980s.

From the moment he was hired, Harbaugh discussed how in trying to build a new champion in the City by the Bay, he’d draw inspiration from the success of the Walsh era.  In the recently released film Team of the 80’s, NFL Films looks back at the men and moments of that era, during which the 49ers were the NFL’s gold standard.
