Morning Tailgate: Super Bowl Bid

Posted by Alex Espinoza on March 7, 2013 – 8:34 AM

49ers CEO Jed York addressed the media on Wednesday at Northwest Plaza of the new Santa Clara Stadium to update reporters on the region’s latest efforts to secure Super Bowl L in 2016. York was joined by Santa Clara mayor Jamie Matthews, San Francisco mayor Ed Lee and San Joe mayor Chuck Reed to promote the region-wide collaboration that will make the Bay Area a premier Super Bowl host for years to come.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee attended Wednesday’s media session and shared his thoughts on the Bay Area’s bid for the big game.

The 50th game holds the most prestige, and that’s the one the 49ers are gunning to get. Team CEO Jed York said he hoped the stadium’s hallmarks – its technology and its sustainable design – catch the eye of the owners. “We have enough solar panels for our 10 games to be powered by the sun,” he said.”

The rest of today’s Morning Tailgate rounds up the latest new stadium headlines and David Akers’ release from the 49ers.

Mike Rosenberg of the Bay Area News Group broke down the latest progress in Santa Clara.

John Cote of the San Francisco Chronicle shared comments from York and the local mayors regarding their collaboration.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group and Barrows each reacted to the release of David Akers.

Mike Sando of ESPN.com sized up possible options for Akers’ replacement as San Francisco’s kicker.

49ers.com continued its 49 in 49 pre-draft series with a look at explosive Georgia LB Jarvis Jones.


Bring the Bowl to the Bay.

    While I can see where the 50th game holds a lot of prestige, I would also think the 49’th would have a nice ring to it also. Then again it would be bettter to win the 49’th that to just host it.

    I can see why, i mean the actual 49ers were gold miners and isnt the 50th anniversary of anything considered the “GOLDEN” anniversary?
