We Were Champions: The 49Ers' Dynasty in Their Own Words
by Phil Barber, Michael Zagaris (Photographer), Bill Walsh
Hardcover: 208 pages ; Dimensions (in inches): 0.81 x 8.50 x 9.34
Publisher: Triumph Books; ISBN: 1572434988; (September 2002)
For 15 NFL seasons, during which they won five Super Bowl titles, no team in pro sports captured the public’s fancy like the San Francisco 49ers. Thanks to a roster filled with superstars such as Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, and Ronnie Lott and an innovative coaching staff headed by the legendary Bill Walsh, the 49ers exuded an aura of invincibility in a sport in which every victory is hard fought.

This is the story of the San Francisco dynasty in the players’ own words, reflections and insights shared with the perspective of time, as they analyze the elements that combined to create pro football magic.

Beginning with a stunning victory over the Dallas Cowboys and a berth in Super Bowl XVI and continuing through a victory in Super Bowl XXIV, the vital figures in 49ers history recall the pivotal moments, the clutch plays, and the smooth transitions that pointed toward the top of the NFL mountain.

"When people ask me how many Super Bowl rings I have," lineman Jesse Sapolu says, "I don’t mean to show a disappointed face, but I just say, ‘Four.’ And they say, ‘You don’t look very excited about it.’ And I tell people, ‘Well, I lost five NFC Championship Games. That’s a lot of big games to lose.’ When I look back on my career, I should be sitting here with at least six, maybe seven Super Bowl rings."

We Were Champions features the rare behind-the-scenes photography of Michael Zagaris, the 49ers’ club photographer for more than two decades, in the definitive look at one of the most storied sports franchises.

Hardcover - 268 pages (October 1995)
Prima Publishing; ASIN: 0761501940
He was the highest-ranked passer in the National Football League in 1992 and '93, but San Francisco 49er quarterback Steve Young was tagged a "loser" when his team failed to win the Super Bowl during both campaigns. For years Young toiled in the shadow of his legendary predecessor, Joe Montana. But Young persevered. In 1994, he realized his quest for a Super Bowl ring.

Best Shots : The Greatest NFL Photography of the Century
by Joe Namath
Hardcover - 160 pages (September 1999)
DK Publishing; ISBN: 0789446391
Dimensions (in inches): 0.79 x 11.32 x 9.37
Football lends itself to still photography. Photos freeze football's chaos, allowing the viewer to examine the details. Photos also catch the game's great moments: Johnny Unitas reaching back to throw in the 1958 championship game; Barry Sanders defying gravity as he changes directions to avoid a tackle; Muhsin Muhammad at full extension crossing the goal line, ball first. Best Shots: The Greatest NFL Photography of the Century celebrates both the players and the photographers--Al Messerschmidt, Michael Zagaris, and Tony Tomsic, to name a few--who captured them. Some of these Best Shots offer glimpses behind the scenes--Joe Montana gathering his thoughts before Super Bowl XXXII, George Halas celebrating with his Bears after beating the Redskins 73-0 in the 1940 NFL Championship game--while others depict the game's highs and its lows--John Elway's horsey grin upon winning his second straight Super Bowl; Y.A. Tittle, head bloodied and bowed, after yet another loss. With a foreword by Broadway Joe Namath (himself caught injured on the bench, sulking in a fur coat and sunglasses), Best Shots is a wonderful look at the NFL's history--and a great gift for any football fan. - Sunny Delaney

Total Football II : The Official Encyclopedia of the National Football League (Total Football, 2nd Ed)
by Bob Carroll (Editor), Michael Gershman, David Neft, John Thorn (Editor), Mike Gershman (Editor)
Hardcover - 1664 pages (September 1999)
Harpercollins; ISBN: 0062701746
Dimensions (in inches): 2.88 x 11.50 x 9.00
At just over seven pounds, the updated Total Football II has the heft of a refrigerator (see William Perry, defensive tackle, p. 1173), and, at 1812 pages, it covers about as much ground as a scrambling quarterback (see John Elway, p. 774). It has all the requisite stats that make a sports reference necessary, but that's just the straight-ahead stuff good for three yards a carry. Where Total Football II breaks free is in the razzle-dazzle of its essays and opinions. Argue with its list of the 300 best players ever (good as he is, shouldn't Terrell Davis have a few more seasons under his belt before "all-time" is stamped on his helmet?). Study how the game's strategies evolved, and learn how to read their diagrams. Even discover how to decipher the mysteries of what the quarterback means when he calls "Red right. Eighteen. Bob odd oh. On three" in the huddle, gets up to the line of scrimmage, and barks, "Pro. Blue 32. Blue 32. Down. Hut! (Pause) Hut! Hut!" 
Football's blitz on the culture is covered in a series of smart essays that range from the mystique attending Super Bowl commercials to why football movies usually come up short. In a nifty examination of the game's penetration of the language, a scenario presents itself: "The average Joe woke up this morning, got into his car, found a seam in the northbound lane of the freeway, and drove to work. At his desk, he huddled with his coworkers, went over his game plan ..." and, well, you get the point. These are just some of the volume's many extra points, and it's the ingenuity of the extras that earn Total Football the right to celebrate in the end zone.

Bill Walsh, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers during the great Montana years, provides an inside look at his tenure with a team that will be remembered as one of the era's most dominating professional sports organizations.

Walsh took over a team in trouble and transformed it into a force to be reckoned with. In Finding the Winning Edge he reveals the methods behind this transformation, including his program for hiring and developing a staff; evaluating and acquiring key players; building a game plan; and overcoming the mental barriers that frequently plague talented teams; Walsh spares no details. Serious football fans and coaches will find this to be an invaluable resource for understanding the highest levels of the game.

The NFL's Greatest Games - '81 NFC Championship
NTSC format (for use in United States and Canada only) 
ASIN: 6305074429
It's the contest that established the San Francisco 49ers' dynasty. It's the most revered moment of the sorely-missed 'Good Old Days' by the 49ers fan consensus. The surprising and young Cinderella team was on its way up, but had to get past one of the most celebrated championship teams around, the experienced and seasoned Dallas Cowboys. If you're a Niner faithful who didn't actually see the whole game, watching this video might be a somewhat frustrating experience at first. The penalties and giving up of six turnovers to the other team can do that. But with less than a minute to play, comes the moment that has become one of the most celebrated in NFL history, with Dwight Clark's leaping, fingertip catch. It would also be the first big example of recent Hall of Fame inductee quarterback Joe Montana's ability to come back and driving for the winning score.

Bryant Young made an amazing recovery from his 1998 season-ending leg injury, and safety Lance Schulters was chosen to start in the Pro Bowl. Endings and Beginnings highlights the past season with a look at the development of the 49ers' youth. The video also says goodbye to members of the 49ers' family including a tearful farewell to offensive line coach Bobb McKittrick, who was a part of all five 49ers championship teams.
