Jeremy Newberry Appreciation-Thread

Hi there,

I am a long time 49ers-fan from Germany an I would like to start a Jeremy Newberry appreciation-thread. In the age of the Jonas Jennings' the niners would love to have him back in his prime.

This guy was a warrior, he played hurt and was a pretty darn good center who should have been a perennial pro bowler. Too bad his knees "killed" his career.

Join me, if you appreciate this man as much as I do...

Thx
Didn't he play for the Raider last year?
I liked him when he was here, and healthy
Newberry was a hellacious blocker, and team leader. Wish his knees woulda held up. Damn injuries really hurt em. He was on the roster of the chargers as a back up, and this year he landed a job wit the falcons. Goodluck to him.
And he whooped ass on the go cart track! C mon who doesn't like go carts lol! If he had remained healthy, no doubt in my mind he still would have been a niner today

Chargers. Didn't see much playing time because he was backup to a healthy & consistent Nick Hardwick. He lived here in Pacific Beach, and even came by the Niners bar when the Chargers had a bye to watch the Niners play. My good friend played with him at Antioch HS. Cool guy.

and he was apart of a very good O-Line when he was here in the early Zero's
Thanks for the memories JNew62. You were a true WARRIOR.
one of the best centers we ever had. my best memory of him was when he mauled omar stoutmire in that playoff game against the giants in 03. ah, great memories.
It said he retired due to complications from the micro-fracture surgery. What are the complications?
The guy played an entire season on a knee that would have had most men crying - an absolute bad-ass if there ever was one.
Got a lot of respect for Newberry, the guy played really hard for us even through injuries, and his leadership and abilities were unmatched by anybody else at times.
He did a great job for us! Pro-bowl caliber!
You're awesome, Jeremy!!
My favorite lineman from the 49ers I remember playing. I remember watching a pre-game report talking about how he had to train in a pool, because his knees were so damaged. A Mauler with guts.
When the 9ers were gutted, at least we had Newberry. I know his knees are shot, and I'm sure he's in pain, but I hope the very best for him. I wish him nothing but the best.
