The San Francisco 49ers bludgeoned opponents last season.

"Montana to Rice"
Dactylic, poetic; strong, natural.
"Montana to Rice"
They say three is the most inherent, innate number that man knows. Count "1, 2, 3" out-loud over and over again. It feels natural, circular, complete. Like a waltz, or a good poem written in triplets.
