I was a big fan of Ted Popson , he had the knack to get open and find some space to make plays , if anyone remembers the comeback against the bengals in the 90's , when Steve Young found Popson in the middle of the field to win us the game
but yeah , "Touchdown Ted Popson" is MY favorite 2nd string of alltime ...Sorry D-Love
I always remembered him as a starter.. i know he started against the Bengals.. one TE i fully remember who never got a chance was Ron Heller #89 .. I think he was THE 2nd stringer behind Frank and he was ahead of Brent Jones..
Also, we gave up too soon on Wesley Walls .. he became a star for the Panthers later on..
