Brian Jennings is the lone 49ers player left from San Francisco’s 2002 squad. It’s worth noting because the two-time Pro Bowl long snapper is the sole leftover from one of the greatest moments in Candlestick Park’s history, the team’s 39-38 epic comeback win over the New York Giants in the NFC’s Wild Card Playoffs.
The game dubbed, “Giant Comeback” is one of several Candlestick Park moments being voted on this month by the team’s Faithful fans. The 49ers are looking for the Greatest Candlestick Park Moments at FarewellCandlestick.com, a voting site presented by SAP.
“It was big for us at the time to do that with that group of players,” Jennings recalled of the amazing come-from-behind win over the Giants.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame released its 2013 inductee candidates on Thursday and the list is littered with 49ers. All-time San Francisco great Bryant Young is one of 13 first-year candidates on the ballot, which features 127 nominees from the field and the front office.
Young played his entire career for the 49ers from 1994-2007 and etched his name among the franchise’s greatest defensive players. The four-time Pro Bowler started 208 games, recording 89.5 sacks en route to becoming one of the best defensive linemen in 49ers history.
49ers Chief Executive Officer Jed York took to Twitter to voice his support for Young shortly after the announcement was made.
“Bryant Young is eligible for the HoF this year,” York wrote. “He deserves to be there. One of the best D-linemen ever. Good luck BY!”
