You have to be older then 12 to appreciate what he did for us. In his youth he was a solid LB for us, then as his skills diminished instead of jumping ship he always just asked how he could help and glady took a lesser role for less pay. This guy is a true Niner for life.
Go back and look at ST plays over the past couple of seasons and you'll see him out there making plays.
Those who say they don't remember are either showing their lack of appreciation for special teams, or they just weren't paying attention.
Look at Rossum's kick off returns against Arizona, at home and away, last year. MRob and Ulbrich are the guys who threw the blocks to spring Rossum. They're the same two guys who competed every year for top honors on ST--guys who made the most tackles, blocks, etc.
He was also a valuable backup for Willis and Spikes, and a veteran leader in the locker room.
Ulbrich will be missed.
