Overview

The San Francisco 49ers shaped the NFL throughout the 1980s with their unique blend of precision, panache, and preparation. Three decades later, NFL teams are still copying the system and the methods that made the 49ers unlike any other organization in professional sports. Now fans of this dynamic franchise will relive all the action and thrills of 49ers football through the eyes of one of the greatest San Francisco legends of all time: Roger Craig.

Star of three of the 49ers Super Bowl wins, Roger Craig was one of the most productive players in franchise history. The first player in NFL history to top 1,000 yards rushing and receiving in the same season, he used his kneechurning, eyes-wide-open style to earn four trips to the Pro Bowl and score a Super Bowl–record three touchdowns in one game. In this newly revised edition of Tales from the San Francisco 49ers Sideline, Roger Craig uses his trademark vision to capture some of the moments that defined the organization during its glory years, and up to its recent return to greatness. Included are stories about all of the men who shaped the direction of the franchise, including such luminaries such as Bill Walsh, Joe Montana, Steve Young, Ronnie Lott, Jerry Rice, George Seifert, and more. Fans will relive all the great moments and read some never-before-told stories from a man who kept his eyes open to everything during his fascinating career.
