You guys hear what Deion said about the 9ers defensive backfield?

Sorry 1994 Championship game.
The best he ever played with maybe, but not the best ever. Dion can hype it up with his talk. I wouldn't put too much stock on what Deion said. He did made us and our secondary better no question. Would not be surprising if he meant the group was the best because he was on it. He deserved to be in Canton. A great combination of speed, agility, and massive confidence to be a great shutdown corner. He would bait QBs into throwing the ball with a little cushion on a receiver, but would closed fast once the ball was in the air.

Love him or hate em, have got to appreciate the immense talent.

Very talented, for sure. Very confident, no doubt. I would take a young Ronnie Lott over him at CB anyday. Both were ball hawks, but Lott would knock your dick off. Ask the Rams about the 2001 SB against the Pats, you stop making plays as a WR when you are playing scared and cautious.
Um, that '84 team beat the PANTS off of the most prolific passing team in football history, led by arguably the best pure passer in history. '94 kicked ass, no doubt--#2 Niner secondary ever--but Stan Humphries simply doesn't compare. And I say this with the firm belief that Deion is the best cover corner ever--including Mike Haynes and Lester Hayes, whom I watched and thought were the best ever before him. Oh--and by the way--you younger guys should check out some Eric Wright highligts sometime--he was sick.

I think they may have played the same position at one time, but they are two different player, with different set of talent and mentality to the game. Talent wise Deion is more gifted than Lott. Not to say that Lott doesn't have any. What separate Lott from Deion or any other NFL players is his approach to playing the game. He would give himself up for the game. The ability to have that mentality alone makes him great. Where as Deion wouldn't give himself up for anything other than maybe Deion -- sometimes. There's really nothing wrong with that as long as Deion has the talent to back it up. Just don't expect Deion to make that TD saving tackle against a 260ish TE.

Damn shame he got injured. I think he'd have been a HOFer if he played out a full, healthy career.

That's kinda what I was saying. No one is saying that Lott was a pure cover man like Deion, but his INT numbers were very impressive, he just used more knowledge, instinct and guts to get those numbers. Additionally, he put the fear into the offense. Anybody who carried the ball knew he was out there somewhere. Additionally, Wright could stick to any WR and still be willing to come up and tackle. Lott/Wright > Sanders/Davis.

Better. Lott was Lott but Eric Wright would have been HOF if not for injury. Williamson just destroyed people and Hicks was one of the most intuitive DBs of his time. I'll take that group over the Hanks, McDonald, Davis group anytime.

The interception by Eric Davis for a touchdown in the 1992 NFC Championship game is one of the great 49er plays.

you mean 94 Championship game
Lott, Williamson, Eric Davis and Dwight Hicks best ever.
Chicken dance after Merton recovered a fumble for a td at Cowboys stadium after Deion left to Dallas = CHILLS
misleading title, he didnt say anything about our current backfield.
