Pigskin Academy: Video: NFL 1960-San Francisco 49ers @ Baltimore Colts: Intro

This post was originally posted at FRS Daily Journal on WordPress

Interesting matchup between a good veteran San Francisco 49er team who were pretty solid in the 1950s and had the wildcard been around back then, probably would’ve made the playoffs several times. But back then only the regular season conference champions made the NFL Playoffs. Against the two-time defending NFL Champion Colts who were going for a three-peat. And got off to a great start in 60 at 6-2, especially when that was only an eight schedule back then. But had serious competition from the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers and yes the San Francisco 49ers who were looking for their first conference championship. So this was a good matchup between two good teams. And an opportunity for the 49ers to show they were as good as anyone at least in the Western Conference.
