In 2014, the 49ers will kickoff at their new stadium in Santa Clara, which means this is the team’s final season at Candlestick Park. Sadly, ‘The ‘Stick’ will be demolished after the 49ers depart. Join us for a look back with our list of the Top 10 Candlestick Memories.
“It’s easy to say would you put Steve Young in there,” John said. But the picks are limited to four, and adding one means removing another. “I’d put Steve Young in there. I may put guys like Hugh McElhenney in there. I may put a guy like Joe Perry in there. I may put a guy like John Henry Johnson from that million dollar backfield (in there). I may throw a Y.A. Tittle in there. Those were guys that were really a big part of the 49ers also, although in a different era. They’re all in the Hall of Fame too.”

Hall of Famer Jerry Rice has no interest in a back-and-forth debate with Randy Moss during Super Bowl week about who’s the greatest NFL wide receiver of all time.
It’s hard to steal all the attention during the week leading up to the Super Bowl, but Randy Moss had accomplished this feat with one statement.

Randy Moss was refreshingly candid during his Media Day session on Tuesday. Confident, too: The 49erswideout said that he believes he’s the greatest wideout in NFL history.
One of the many things that put the San Francisco 49ers square in the middle of any conversation about the greatest football franchise ever is the fact that they have never lost in a Super Bowl. With five appearances in the Big Dance, they have secured five championship rings, and this year’s team will look to add a 6th. This time around, they have a very talented Raven’s team and some extra pressure standing in the way.
No self-respecting San Francisco 49ers fan would be caught tailgating at Candlestick Park without some scarlet red and metallic gold garb. Here are some wardrobe suggestions for 49ers tailgaters that would have made Tony Morabito proud.
The former coach noted that Patriots coach Bill Belichick met earlier this year with hurry-up offense specialist and Oregon coach Chip Kelly.
