Synopsis

The San Francisco 49ers entered the 1984 season determined to erase the memory of their three point loss to the Washington Redskins in the NFC Championship Game the year before. Nineteen games later, they had not only won the Super Bowl, they had redefined NFL history by becoming the first team to win 18 games in a single season. Led by Hall of Fame head coach Bill Walsh and future Hall of Fame players Joe Montana, Ronnie Lott, and Fred Dean, the 1984 San Francisco 49ers finished the season with just one defeat. A Nearly Perfect Season: The Inside Story of the 1984 San Francisco 49ers will chronicle for the first time ever the story of one of the NFL's greatest teams who came within one game of perfection. Including original interviews with over 30 players from the team, coaches, the GM, and the owner, this book provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes account of a season to remember.
