1949 1951

The 1950 San Francisco 49ers season was the team's first season in the NFL, after playing the previous four years in the All-America Football Conference, which folded after the 1949 season. The 49ers, Baltimore Colts, and Cleveland Browns all joined the NFL from the AAFC.

San Francisco's first ever NFL game was at Kezar Stadium on September 17 against the New York Yanks, as the 49ers fell short, losing by a score of 21-17. They would start the season 0-5 before recording their first NFL victory in a close 28-27 victory over the Detroit Lions at home. The Niners would play better after the 0-5-0 start, going 3-4-0 in their remaining 7 games to finish the season 3-9-0, and fail to qualify for the playoffs.

Top PlayersEdit

Quarterback Frank Albert would complete 50.7% of his passes, while throwing for 14 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. Running back Joe Perry would rush for a team high 647 yards and 5 touchdowns, while wide receiver Alyn Beals caught 22 passes for 315 yards, and 3 touchdowns. Receiver/kicker Gordy Soltau led the team in scoring with 44 points.
