The Niners will be wearing their throwback uniforms on Sunday, and members of the team have been inspired by photos of the team's greats—many of them sporting facial hair—displayed at the team's facility in Santa Clara, Calif.
"Every single day that we walk through here, you just can't help but admire John Ayers' mustache. It's awesome," Hill said. Hill had to be informed that the one of his position predecessors, the greatest quarterback in franchise history, once had a mustache. Photos exist of a young Joe Montana sporting a Fu Manchu, although it is not on the wall of the facility.
