In 1946, the team joined the Los Angeles Dons of the AAFC and the Los Angeles Rams of the rival National Football League as the first three teams playing a "big four"-sport in the Western United States becoming part of the NFL themselves in 1950.
In 1957, the 49ers enjoyed their first sustained success as members of the NFL. After losing the opening game of the season, the 49ers won their next three against the Rams and Packers before returning home to Kezar Stadium for a game against the Chicago Bears on October 27, 1957; the 49ers fell behind the Bears 17–7. Tragically, 49ers owner Tony Morabito died during the game; the 49ers players learned of his death at halftime when coach Frankie Albert was handed a note with two words: "Tony's gone." With tears running down their faces, motivated to win for their departed owner, the 49ers scored 14 unanswered points to win the game, 21–17. Dicky Moegle's late-game interception in the endzone sealed the victory. After Tony's death 49er ownership went to Tony's widow, Josephine V. Morabito; the 49ers special assistant to the Morabitos, Louis G. Spadia was named general manager. During the decade of the 1950s the 49ers were known for their so-called "Million Dollar Backfield", consisting of four future Hall of Fame members: quarterback Y. A. Tittle and running backs John Henry Johnson, Hugh McElhenny, Joe Perry.
They became the only full-house backfield inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. For most of the next 13 years, the 49ers hovered around.490, except for 1963 and 1964 when they went 2–12 and 4–10 respectively. Key players for these 49ers included running back Ken Willard, quarterback John Brodie, offensive lineman Bruce Bosley. During this time the 49ers became the first NFL team to use the shotgun formation, it was named by the man who devised the formation, San Francisco 49ers' coach Red Hickey, in 1960. The formation, where the quarterback lines up seven yards behind the center, was designed to allow the quarterback extra time to throw; the formation was used for the first time in 1960 and enabled the 49ers to beat the Baltimore Colts, who were not familiar with the formation. In 1961 using the shotgun, the 49ers got off to a fast 4–1 start, including two shutouts in back-to-back weeks. In their sixth game they faced the Chicago Bears, who by moving players closer to the line of scrimmage and rushing the quarterback, were able to defeat the shotgun and in fact shut out the 49ers, 31–0.
Though the 49ers went only 3–5–1 the rest of the way, the shotgun became a component of most team's offenses and is a formation used by football teams at all levels. In 1962, the 49ers had a frustrating season, they won only one game at Kezar Stadium. After posting a losing record in 1963. Victor Morabito died May 10, 1964, at age 45; the 1964 season was another lost campaign. According to the 1965 49ers Year Book the co-owners of the team were: Mrs. Josephine V. Morabito Fox, Mrs. Jane Morabito, Mrs. O. H. Heintzelman, Lawrence J. Purcell, Mrs. William O'Grady, Albert J. Ruffo, Franklin Mieuli, Frankie Albert, Louis G. Spadia and James Ginella; the 1965 49ers rebounded nicely to finish with a 7–6–1 record. They were led that year by John Brodie, who after being plagued by injuries came back to become one of the NFL's best passers by throwing for 3,112 yards and 30 touchdowns. In 1966, the Morabito widows named team president. For the 1968 season, the 49ers hired as their head coach Dick

State Route 161 is an east–west state highway in central Ohio. Its western terminus is in Mutual at State Route 29 and its eastern terminus is near Alexandria at State Route 37, it is 57.46 miles long. State Route 161 passes through Columbus, Ohio's capital, a variety of towns including Plain City and New Albany; the route was established in 1924 to connect Plain Dublin. It was expanded to cover Mutual and Granville. Parts of SR 161 in Dublin and New Albany were upgraded to a freeway in 1969 and 1997. SR 161 starts off in Mutual as Milford Road, at a T-intersection at SR 29; the road turns northeast and meets SR 559 and Bullard Rutan Road in a 5-point intersection. Two miles a concurrency begins with SR 4. One mile the concurrency ends with SR 4 continuing to move north. About five miles SR 38 starts a short concurrency at Chuckery. After Chuckery, SR 38 splits off. There would be no more major intersections until SR 161 has reached Plain City, as it meets U. S. Route 42. SR 161 goes through a small section of Franklin County without major intersections.
In Union County, it meets Post Road in an interchange. SR 161 starts a concurrency; the concurrency goes back into Dublin. In Dublin, the freeway has interchanges with Avery–Muirfield Drive and Interstate 270; the freeway becomes an at-grade highway. The road goes into Dublin downtown and has intersections with SR 745 and SR 257. At SR 257, US 33 splits off and the concurrency ends. After that, there are no more major intersections until SR 161 reaches Worthington, as it meets SR 315 in a diamond interchange, US 23 at an at-grade intersection. After the intersection at US 23, SR 161 enters Columbus. There is an intersection with SR 710 and an interchange with I-71. Three miles in Minerva Park, SR 161 becomes a limited access freeway; the first exit is a partial cloverleaf interchange with service roads. A mile SR 161 re-enters Columbus and meets I-270 again in a modified cloverleaf interchange. There is a SPUI-parclo hybrid interchange at Sunbury Road, an incomplete interchange for Little Turtle Way, a half of a diamond interchange.
The next two interchanges, Hamilton Road and New Albany Road, uses diamond interchanges. SR 161 enters New Albany, has two interchanges with US 62, in Franklin County, Beech Road, in Licking County, it exits New Albany and enters St. Albans Township. In the township, SR 161 has two diamond interchanges with SR 310 and SR 37. SR 161 ends at SR 37. SR 161 is part of the Big Darby Plains scenic byway; the parts of the route that are included in the byway are from Homer Road to Rosedale Road and from Kramer Road to US 33. SR 161 was designated as a connection from Plain City to Dublin, its east end was a junction with SR 21, five miles west of Dublin. It was expanded to include an unnumbered section between Mutual and Plain City, Dublin and Granville. In 1938, a concurrency from five miles west of Dublin to the city itself was changed from SR 31 to US 33. Much in 1969, the five-mile section in Dublin was upgrade to a freeway. Seven years the section between I-71 and Sunbury Road was upgraded to a divided highway.
In 1997, a bypass was created from I-270 to a point two miles east of it. SR 161's route was changed to use the bypass; the project completed in 2000. On June 14, 2004, Ohio Department of Transportation began the Northeast Expressway Transformation, replacing 17 bridges, 18 ramps, 5 miles of highway; the project finished in 2008. The freeway in New Albany was extended to SR 161's eastern terminus. New interchanges and solutions are being designed for interchanges of I-270 and Avery-Muirfield Drive. Study started for the interchanges in 2011, phase one of the project will start in 2014. An unsigned state route named SR 161J existed in Licking County, it consisted of the former section of SR 161. Beginning at a dead end near the SR 161–Beech Road interchange, it traveled east along Worthington Road and ended at Watkins Road, it intersected SR 310, but never met SR 161. The route suffix "J" meant that the road was "awaiting abandonment." The route was abandoned by the state by 2013. U. S.
