Originally posted by AthensGaNiner: I voted for Cowboy, but a couple of people mentioned Tony Parrish. I was curious as to why he would rank above someone like Spikes. Is it length of service, or outstanding play, or maybe a single dramatic play that I don't recall?
Not disagreeing with you, just curious as to the reasons behind the praise.
Tony Parrish was GREAT for a couple of those years and good for the others. One year I think he had 9 picks or something, while he had a broken hand for an extended period of time. He was a baller.
I know Justin Smith is great, but we gave him a lot of money, not overpaying hime though
I would go with players who came from no where but become a star. They are Walt Harris and Aubayo Franklin. Their initial contract signed was definitely way underpaid based on their performance with the Niners.
