One Last Look Back

The 2013 San Francisco 49ers Yearbook (Weeks 1-4)

With the NFL Draft right around the corner, we thought it was appropriate to take one last look at a wonderful season from our San Francisco 49ers. Sure, they came up short of the ultimate goal, but nonetheless, it was a great year filled with so many amazing moments and memories. We thought we'd take a look at the season through some of the great pictures USA Today Sports and Getty Images photographers produced. We're breaking this down into four game sets, and then three for the playoffs. Here is the first of five entries in 'The 2013 San Francisco 49ers Yearbook'.
