Who was your favorite 9er who never panned out?






Also, Lamichael James. Really had high hopes for him.

Is that Plummer from the Niners-Giants playoff game ? Dude got burned by Toomer all day long --- couldnt wait to get rid of him.

Favorite that didn't pan out? Barlow.

I can't say Manny because he was okay...he just wasn't as great as we hoped....Barlow started out great and then failed.
Mike Rumph.

For me its the ones that started well and faded away.

Kevan Barlow- I remember being so impressed with him backing up Hearst.

I thought Jeff Ulbrich was as tough as nails... Even Derek Smith to an extent.

Derek Smith was a pro bowler with the 49ers, no?
Andre Carter. Never quite fit what the Niners defense when he was here. Local boy who never quite made good here.

One of the few entertaining players on some really bad teams.

Dexter "fumble every other punt" Carter
Patrick Willis
Paul Hofer. Tremendous heart. Tremendous drive. Terrible knees. If he would have stayed healthy, there would have been no need for Wendell Tyler or Roger Craig.

Eric Davis did pan out. He was a good player.

I'm still upset at him to this very day ...after he left , we didnt have any solid CB's and we got torched every week , if we would have signed him , we would have had some talent in the secondary to compete with all those passing attacks, and maybe even had squeezed out an extra win or two, but it wasnt until Ahmed Plummer and Jason Webster arrived that we had some decent talent in the secondary ...But Eric Davis should have retired a 49er

Plummer and Webster decent? I'd say subpar at best.
