The San Francisco 49ers have long been putting fans in the stands thanks to the bevy of talented players recruited to join the team. However, it's also assumed that the franchise's winning ways are a big part of why people continue to highly regard the organization as an integral part of the National Football League.
The 49ers, which originally debuted in 1946, have made 24 appearances in the postseason. In playoff games they have an overall record of 27-19, making them a dangerous team to play once the regular season comes to an end. San Francisco has made five appearances in the Super Bowl and won each of them, their latest triumph taking place 1994.
A number of notable players have made it into the Pro Football Hall of Fame after participating with the organization, including Joe Montana, Jerry Rice and Steve Young. The 49ers have also retired a series of numbers, including 8, 80 and 16. Number 8 belonged to Young, who is considered to be one of the most successful quarterbacks in NFL history.
Today, the 49ers play alongside the Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals in the NFC West. Throughout the history of the franchise, San Francisco has won their division 18 times, most recently in 2011.
