Golden Nuggets: Eddie D. is Still a Winner

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Monday, July 14, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

I grew up with the 49ers' dynasty teams from the 80's, and watched Eddie DeBartolo Jr. (along with Walsh and Montana) catapult the Niners franchise to one of the best of all time. I felt that he was every bit as innovative in his ownership as Bill Walsh was in his coaching. That's why it was just so appropriate that he received the pass from Joe Montana to win the Legends of Candlestick flag-football game.

It was a nice way to end an era and begin a new one at Levi's Stadium. With the opening of Levi's this season, the hand-off from DeBartolo to current owner Jed York is historically complete. It's time now for Jed to win his own championships, and he along with his own generals Trent Baalke, Jim Harbaugh and Colin Kaepernick are poised to do just that.

Here's a farewell message from Eddie DeBartolo:

Eddie D. is still a winner. Just a great part of the DeBartolo-Walsh-Montana trifecta that made the 49ers franchise a landmark dynasty. | DeBartolo scores last touchdown at Candlestick Park (PFT)
