They’re real. Those horrible, “these-can’t-be-real” logos that leaked a few weeks back, are real. Below is the leak of a Rams hat:

The actual Ram itself appears to be a throwback to the Rams’ old days when their first set of logos were all rams heads. The video below shows how the team’s logo evolved throughout the years, with the Rams sticking to that ram head, with multiple design changes, from 1941 to 1982.
The 49ers section starts at 5:52. The team has effectively had the same logo since 1968, with design changes coming in 1996 (adding gold and heightening the black trim on the outside and around the font) and again in 2009.
Much of the issue surrounding the logo is that the color scheme and “LA” logo incorporating a horn, looks like it could arguably be a Chargers logo. The two are set to play in the new Sofi Stadium next season, which surely won’t cause any confusion. Maybe the goal is to get all LA fans to root for both teams by making the two indistinguishable from each other.
