Good List...other suggestions for the number 5 spot include CB Jim Johnson, LB Dave Wilcox, and a personal favorite of mine, DE Cedric Hardman. All were absolute studs. Going further back, RB Joe Perry wasn't too shabby either...

Tittle, John Brodie, Gene Washington, Dave Wilcox, Cedric Hardman, etc. We had a ton of great players before Walsh, Siefert & the Super Bowls came along. Much as I love Willis, he simply hasn't played long enough to be on the top 5 list. I'll give this a shot, but, really, it's very subjective and you can make arguments for many players to be on it.

Joe Montana Bob St. Clair

Leo Nomellini Joe Perry
agree. i feel bad for people who never saw gene washington. Ok he never had great stats but the best pair of hands and smoooth. i think he is the second best wide out in our history behind rice and ahead of john taylor. i would take number 18 and his big old poofy afro over owens any day. It was a pleasure to watch hardman and tommy hart in 1976, I remember on monday night football they had 8 or 9 sacks against the rams and we set a record for most sacks that year which i think still stands

Just FYI... In that game against the Rams in 1976, Tommy Hart set a then NFL record by getting 6 sacks in that single game. The team as a whole recorded 10 sacks in that game, which I believe is still a franchise record. I remember it well....an amazing performance.

Completely agree with your comments about Gene Washington. When he had John Brodie throwing to him, he was an All-Pro every year (with excellent stats BTW) and when Brodie retired, he was still good even with nobody throwing to him. He was heading straight to the Hall of Fame before Brodie retired. Too bad he never got to play with another decent QB...

Bill Walsh (1979-1988) is not a player, but he makes the top of my list.

After Walsh the top 49ers are:

1. Ronnie Lott (1981-1990)
2 .Jerry Rice (1985-2000)
3. Joe Montana (1979-1992)
4 .Joe Perry (1948-1960, 1963)
5 .Leo Nomellini (1950-1963)

And then the rest

6.Hugh McElhenny (1952-1960)
7. Steve Young (1987-1999)
8.John Henry Johnson (1954-1956)
9.Jimmy Johnson (1961-1976)
10.Bob St. Clair (1953-1963)
11.Y.A. Tittle (1951-1960)
12. Dave Wilcox (1964-1974)
13. O.J. Simpson (1978-1979)

Very good knowledge, Corva... That is a great top 10 list...

I mentioned Hardman in one of my earlier posts as a possible top 5 player on this list. Just a flat out stud pass rusher....even better than Fred Dean....and that is saying something.

Craig @ 5??? He's arguably not even a top-5 RUNNING BACK in Niner history (Gore, Hearst, guys way back when like Million Dollar Backfield and s**t). He probably is, but still...definitely not a top-5 player period in our history. IMO Willis is already there.


Hearst over Roger Frickin Craig? I suppose Kurt Thomas is one of the top 10 power forwards in NBA history too?
