MT: Seifert, Young Join SB Committee

Posted by Taylor Price on April 11, 2013 – 9:23 AM

The Bay Area’s quest to host Super Bowl L or LI received a boost this week with the two key former 49ers joining the region’s Super Bowl bid committee.

According to the SF Gate, Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young and two-time Super Bowl winning coach George Seifert, have joined the committee that features many other well-known Bay Area personalities (Condoleeza Rice, Charles Schwab, Thomas Keller and others).

NFL owners will decide the host cities for both Super Bowls at the annual owner meetings on May 21. If the Bay Area wins, the game will be played at the new Santa Clara Stadium which is set to open in 2014.

The Bay Area is up against the Miami region to host Super Bowl L in 2016. It would be the 50th anniversary of the biggest game in professional sports. The runner-up from that vote will compete with Houston to host Super Bowl LI in 2017. Bay Area mayors, Jamie Matthews of Santa Clara and Ed Lee of San Francisco, recently held a press conference on March 7 to discuss the Super Bowl bid.

Learn more about the future home of the San Francisco 49ers at NewSantaClaraStadium.com and book your personal tour of the facility today.

You can also learn more about the San Francisco Super Bowl bid on their official site and Twitter account.

More 49ers headlines can be found in today’s Morning Tailgate.

Barrows also discussed the 49ers targeting offensive linemen later in the NFL Draft.

    ok that would be an awesome scenario and you know how the nfl likes to hype up the sb for viewership but it wouldnt even be close we would wipe up alex smith
    but it would be fun to watch

    i think the reasons being besides the obviuos we are a way better team right now they have the #1 draft pick for a reason
    our coaches know this guy and he doesnt have frank gore or the ability to play coservitive and beat us
    he gets hot makes some short plays and still loses a lopsided game, he would need his whole team outplaying us in order to beat us,not gonna happen,hes not the type of qb to carry his team by himself,sorry alex smith,and for my birthday i need a new jersey my #11 is well getting old

    alex smith does deserve credit for “the catch” we all cried when vernon davis caught that ball and came off the field crying, beating the saints on the last play

    heres the “3 catches”

    The 49ers are a better and deeper team, but the distance between the two isn’t as great as you think if everyone on both sides stays healthy. Remember what happened for the 49ers when Mike Singletary was replaced by Jim Harbaugh? Expect a much bigger differential in record between the Romeo Crennel Chiefs of 2012 and the Andy Reid Chiefs of 2013. Romeo Crennel was awful, and quite possibly worse than Singletary.

    Better coaching.
    Better quarterbacking.
    Better Sundays.

    It was nice to see that video dispense with the pre-Harbaugh era within the first four minutes. Nolan and Singletary were awful head coaches, and are a huge part of the reason it took eight years before Alex Smith could obtain a winning record as a starter.

    I love the call in the booth by Ted Robinson on that final touchdown of the Saints game.

    I already miss that team.

    Why do you keep coming back to tell me you are ignoring me when clearly you aren’t? Are you really that ill?

    You can’t shut me up. Only Kaepernick can. And you had better hope he can.

    wait wasnt andy reid coach of the eagles when they tried to make a”dream team”
    and they went and got Nnamdi A and played him in a zone defense? or was that another bad coach ?

    “wait wasnt andy reid coach of the eagles when they tried to make a ‘dream team'”

    Yes, he was the coach of the Eagles these last two years. During those years, he had to put up with a deliberately underperforming and then an injured DeSean Jackson, a persistently injured Jeremy Maclin (so there goes the receiving corps). Last year, the offensive line was absolutely destroyed by injuries, and then Michael Vick went out as a consequence of that.

    They ended that season with LeSean McCoy missing four games during the last six weeks with a concussion, and Vick didn’t play between weeks 11 and 16. If you are trying to suggest that Andy Reid was a bad coach, just imagine how the 49ers would have done with Scott Tolzien, Anthony Dixon, Brett Swain, and A.J. Jenkins being the healthiest at the skill positions while Staley, Iupati, Goodwin, and Davis are all out for the season from week 12 onward. I don’t care if it’s Jim Harbaugh coaching: You’re having to teach backups how to be starters with very little time left in the season to do so.

    So in recap, Yes, the Chiefs have an excellent coach in Reid, who has a winning record in the post-season at 10-9 while having played in one of the most competitive divisions in the league during the past 15 years. Under his coaching, the Eagles won the NFC East 7 times. In 14 years as coach of the Eagles, he had only 3 losing seasons (his first season as head coach, the year immediately after winning the NFC Conference Title, and his final year as head coach). The 49ers benefit from having him out of the conference entirely.

    we all want to know so what is it ?

  33. By Hermie on Apr 15, 2013 | Reply

    Always excuses, excuses, excuses on how or why someone underpormed whether it be a player or coach…ask “any” Eagle fan how they feel about Reid and his former players about his “poor” decisions when it came to coaches and coaching in big games!! Enough said!! No Brag, Just Fact!!!

  34. By phatalerror on Apr 15, 2013 | Reply

    I guess it was all “poor” decisions that brought Andy Reid a winning record in the post-season. Get a life, dude. Just because Jim Harbaugh is an excellent coach doesn’t mean everyone else is an idiot.

    He’s got more post-season wins than many coaches get post-season appearances. You don’t meet with that sort of success by being a “poor” coach.

    But here’s the interesting thing: Andy Reid is hitched to Alex Smith just as Jim Harbaugh is hitched to Colin Kaepernick. What will you say about Harbaugh if Colin struggles this year? And what if the 2013 Chiefs take the AFC West the way Alex Smith helped the 2011 49ers take the NFC West?

    Look at Reids record over the last 3 years dude!!! Not impressive dude!!! No Brag, Just Fact!!
