The 49ers entered professional football in 1946 as a founding member of the All-America Football Conference, which was founded in 1946. Had it not been for the Cleveland Browns, a team that won four championships and lost only four games in the league's four years of operation, the 49ers would have been the AAFC's dominant team. Their four-year record was a 39-15-2. Although San Francisco handed Cleveland two of its four defeats, they still finished second each year. The 49ers were admitted to the NFL in 1950 following the collapse of the AAFC. They came close to a championship only once during their first two decades in the NFL. In 1957, they tied Detroit for the NFL Western division crown but lost in a playoff.

A new era dawned for the 49ers in March 1977 when Edward J. DeBartolo Jr. became the new owner. Bill Walsh, renowned as an offensive specialist, was hired in 1979 as the 49ers head coach. Three seasons later the Niners had their first championship, a 26-21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl XVI. San Francisco won the West again in 1983, but saved their best for 1984. That year they won 18 of 19 games, including Super Bowl XIX, in which they beat the Miami Dolphins. Walsh ended his professional coaching career after San Francisco's 20-16 victory over Cincinnati in Super Bowl XXIII. In 10 years as the Niners' coach, Walsh had a 102-62-1 record, won six NFC West titles and three Super Bowls.

The team name, which originates from the 1849 goldrush, was selected as a recognition of the pioneering and adventurous spirit of the men of the 1849 gold rush in the Sierra Nevada mountains east of San Francisco. It is the only name the team has had and San Francisco is the only city in which it has resided. They were the first NFL team to produce 10 or more wins for 16 consecutive seasons (1983 to 1998), and the first to win five Super Bowls.

Striking Gold

The 49ers started a second-rate franchise, a step down from the Browns in the small AAFC. But they made a great transition to the NFL and are considered by many, to be one of the best franchises in sports.
