i dont think this is a good thread.

you can't do top 10. because different players are good and judge by different things. 10 is too few.

i'd say best 11 on O and best 11 on D

Owens shouldn't be on the list. From what I have seen on their countdowns it is about who where the greatest players to effect their organization. Owens had a great career but a lot of it was not with the niners. I had trouble with this and included coaches and owners since if I remember correct Landry was the Cowboys number one.

  1. Jerry Rice The Goat enough said.
  2. Joe Montana One of the greatest QBs of all time
  3. Bill Walsh The genius. I wanted to rank him number one but just couldn't over Rice and Montana.
  4. Ronnie Lott One of the greatest DBs of all time.
  5. Leo Nomellini The lion was named all NFL in both offense and defense.
  6. Bob St. Clair One of our First Great NFL lineman
  7. Dave Wilcox. Willis can surpass him as our greatest LB but he hasn't yet.
  8. Joe Perry. Can't help but feel I am ranking him to low.
  9. Eddie Debartolo The man that started a dynasty
  10. Fred Dean Wow so many to choices but I will take the HOF DE
1. Jerry Rice
2. Joe Montana
3.Steve Young
4.Ronnie Lott
5. Dwight Clark
6.Joe Perry
7. Bob St. Clair
8.John Taylor
9.Rodger Craig
10. fred dean
No T.O?

The thread is okay during the dry season of May till training camp. However, I'm sure many fans weren't born or were to young to see the exploits of the million dollar backfield or the pass rush skills of Tommy Hart and the rock solid play of Leo Nomelini, he never missed a game in 14 years. The great Jimmy Johnson, Hall of Famer played 16 years, opposing teams stopped throwing in his direction. In a decade or two it will be impossible to make a comprehensive list because the fans that witnessed these greats will be gone also.
