Throwbacks for Walsh
Say what you want about John York, but the way he is handling the whole Bill Walsh tribute is awesome. I doubt there is one Niner fan out there that is not on the York bandwagon for this event. York wrote another letter addressed to the fans discussing the comments they received pertaining to Walsh and the one suggestion from the fans that kept coming up was that the team should wear throwbacks to honor Walsh. So York listened to the fans and did just that. The 49ers will be wearing throwbacks to open the season against the Cardinals.
Many of you have written or called asking us to have players wear the throwback jerseys for a game to honor Coach Walsh. We’re proud to say that we will do just that.
In memory of the start Bill Walsh provided for that incredible journey, the 49ers players will wear jerseys from that era during our season-opening September 10 Monday Night Football game against Arizona.
