Meet the 2009 San Francisco 49ers

Posted by Taylor Price on September 7, 2009 – 3:47 PM


The 49ers put in a little amount of work on Labor Day. They did so by taking their team photo on Monday. Tackle Tony Pashos, the team’s newest member was also in attendance.

The 6-6, 326-pound lineman stood out for his size, but also because his last name has yet to be sewn on his new No. 77 jersey. But Pashos, who signed with the 49ers earlier in the day, looked happy to be amongst his new teammates.

At one point of the team photo, the photographer told Pashos to lift his chin. After a perfectly timed pause, the photographer said to Pashos, “Not that chin, your other chin!” Which got a huge laugh out of the entire team.

When the players broke into individual photos with their positional coaches, guard Chilo Rachal had advice for some of his fellow players on how to appear skinnier. “Lift your head up and stick your chin out!” he said with a smile to some teammates in the vicinity.

Perhaps the funniest moment of the afternoon was seeing cornerback Shawntae Spencer come out on the field wearing his red practice jersey. Spencer needed to be reminded that the team would be wearing the red game jersey and not the red practice jersey.

But it wasn’t all bad news for Spencer on Labor Day. Head coach Mike Singletary announced on Monday that Spencer would be the team’s starting right cornerback entering the ’09 season.

Spencer battled back from an ACL tear that caused him to miss practically all of last season. After rehabbing his injury, Spencer battled with Dre’ Bly and Tarell Brown throughout camp for the team’s other starting cornerback job.

Without leading the competition at any point, Spencer was able to show the coaching staff enough to win the job at the very end.

    the only way we are going to win this Arizona team, its simple 49ers. we must control the line of scrimage both sides of the ball right in the trenches. once this occurs any team can basically do what they want to the opposing team, its a given fact. I don’t care how many superstars are on a team. Niners must apply tremendous pressure and rattle Warner #1. O-line must steam roll over their oppents, opening up holes for Gore and Coffee #2, and #3 for god sake pass protect so shaun can have that time to find Bruce and Morgan. All this will send waves thru out the NFC West and league we will be a force to reckon with. 49ers 24 Cards 20
