The 2000 San Francisco 49ers season was the franchise's 51st season in the National Football League and their 45th overall. Jerry Rice entered the 2000 season as the oldest player in the league at the wide receiver position. At the end of the year, however, with the emergence of Terrell Owens, Rice decided to leave the team after sixteen seasons.
The 49ers improved from 4-12 in 1999 to 6-10, but still suffered back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since four consecutive losing seasons from 1977 to 1980.
Without Steve Young, who retired after the 1999 season, the 49ers fully relied on second-year quarterback Jeff Garcia, who enjoyed his best season and being named to the Pro Bowl after this season.
