EVERYTHING’S COMING-UP NINERS: Just as the San Francisco 49ers earned their second, straight berth in the NFC championship game this Sunday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced that Niners former owner, Eddie DeBartolo Jr., is among 15 finalists who will be considered this year for induction. The Niners will face the Atlanta Falcons, in Atlanta, this Sunday for a berth in the 2013 Super Bowl. The Niners won five Super Bowls while Mr. DeBartolo was the team’s owner. He is pictured, at left, with his nephew, Jed York, at right, who now heads the Niners as owner/chief executive officer. York is in charge of construction of a new, $1.2 billion stadium for the team that is set to open in 2014. The San Francisco 49ers are among the NFL’s crown-jewel franchises. They have won 19 division titles and five NFC championships, but they haven’t won a road playoff game in 24 years. Their last post-season victory away from home was a 28-3 win over Chicago in the NFC title game at Soldier Field in Jan, 1989 when Joe Montana threw three touchdown passes, including a pair to Jerry Rice. Chicago’s back-up quarterback at the time was Jim Harbaugh, now head coach of the Niners. DeBartolo Jr. and York are pictured during ceremonies at Canton’s Hall of Fame two years ago when Rice gained induction. DeBartolo Jr. and York both graduated from St. Charles School, Cardinal Mooney High School and the University of Notre Dame.
