The Niners went through a very transitional 2014 season, going from NFC West powerhouse alongside Seattle to 8-8, missing the playoffs while enduring a season’s worth of drama surrounding coach Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh departed for Michigan, replaced by Jim Tomsula. The defense was still solid, but Colin Kaepernick’s offense took a major step backward. They opened the stadium at 7-4 but then lost four straight, including being held to 23 points in a three-game stretch. There have been a number of personnel changes on the offensive side, letting Frank Gore walk and replacing him with Reggie Bush and a developing Carlos Hyde. Michael Crabtree crossed the bay and signed with Oakland, so the Niners signed Torrey Smith. Smith and Anquan Boldin (83 rec, 1,062 yards) were the top two receivers on the Ravens team that beat the Niners in Super Bowl XLVI. San Fran also lost great center Mike Iupati, WR Stevie Johnson, DE Ray McDonald, CB Chris Culliver, and MLB Patrick Willis, who stunningly announced retirement from injury. The Niners added LB Philip Wheeler, CB Shareece Wright, and DE Darnell Dockett, but Tomsula will be challenged to continue the defensive success they’ve enjoyed in recent years. Also, Kaepernick will need to be more consistent. The San Francisco 49ers operate under head coach Jim Tomsula at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. The new digs proved to be popular in its rookie season and hosts the Super Bowl this year, the milestone Super Bowl 50. The 2014 season snapped a postseason streak of three years in a row, including one Super Bowl appearance and a NFC Championship Game appearance each year. The Harbaugh era woke the Niners up from their 2000s slumber that saw eight consecutive .500 or worse seasons between 2002 and 2010. The golden age of Niners football came between 1981 and 2002, as they made 18 playoff appearances in 22 seasons. They also won five Super Bowls in that time, three under Joe Montana and two under Steve Young. It’s those titles that have made the franchise among the NFL’s greatest all time. 2015 home opponents include Minnesota on Monday night, Green Bay, Baltimore, Seattle on Thursday night, Atlanta, Arizona, Cincinnati on Sunday night, and St. Louis.
