Synopsis by Ed Atkinson
Since joining the NFL, the San Francisco 49ers have become one of the more dominant teams, rarely missing the playoffs and capturing several titles. This video documents the team's rapid rise to the top with classic game footage and interviews with players, coaches and sports writers. Joe Montana, Roger Craig, Brent Jones and others give their thoughts about playing for championship teams and the 49er organization. The video presents an interesting timeline, showing the team's rough and tumble introduction to the NFL through their pinnacle with Joe Montana and Jerry Rice passing their way to the Hall of Fame. This video was definitely created with the fan in mind, but differs from the usual team yearbook video. It is filled with pride and exaltation, which may grate some hardcore fans looking for pure action; the film is more history than highlight oriented.
