DVR ALERT: Top Ten 49ers tonight on NFL Network

9 PM ET

Should be good!
ABOUT FKN TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



They made a raider list before us?
Good call :-). Thanks. So the question is, who is going to be numbers 6-10? Maybe even 7-10, because I'm going Bill Walsh, Joe Montana, Eddie DeBartolo, Jerry Rice, Steve Young, and Ronnie Lott.
I wonder if Gore or Willis make it. Tall order because only 10 spots.

If it's entire history of the franchise, then there will have to be a couple from the likes of YA Tittle, Hugh McElhenny, Joe Perry, John Henry Johnson, Leo Nomellini, Dave Wilcox, Cedrick Hardman...there's more, but point being 49er greats / history didn't start in 1981, although obviously the SB years will have the most.
I'll throw out a list that you could debate:

Top 10 Potential: (Random Order)
Jerry Rice
Joe Montana
Steve Young
Ronnie Lott
Jimmy Johnson
Frank Gore
Roger Craig
Joe Perry
Terrell Owens
Leo Nomellini
Bob St. Clair
Dave Wilcox
Bryant Young
Hugh McElhenny

Next Tiers: (Random Order)
Vernon Davis
Garrison Hearst
Ricky Watters
Charles Haley
Dwight Clark
John Brodie
Jeff Garcia
Brent Jones
John Taylor
Keena Turner
Merton Hanks
Tom Rathman
Jesse Sapolu
Harris Barton
Derrick Deese
Randy Cross
Guy McIntyre
Eric Wright
Patrick Willis
Cedrick Hardman
Steve Wallace
Tim McDonald
Freddie Solomon
Dwight Hicks
Gene Washington

Probably missing a bunch too but that's a start.

1. Zak Keasey
Rice
Montana
Lott
Craig
Tittle
Perry
D Clark
Owens
Willis
And last sapolu Leo momelmi
#7-10 Dwight Clark, John Taylor, and Harris barton. Willis will be a top 10 49er when he retires.
I think as of now Gore would be in the top 10 before Willis and that's if either of them make it. Willis will probably be in at the end of his career but I wouldn't put hinm in yet.
Montana, Rice, Young, Lott, DeBartalo, Clark, Craige, B. Young, Willis, Owens

Good call
I'm shocked that Bill Walsh isn't on the list. If I heard that lady right, she asked why there aren't any coaches on the list early in the show.

And oh yeah, listening to Gregg Rosenthall I can see why he is such a punk. Clearly the nerdy kid who got picked on by the football team and now he is taking out his revenge by trolling everyone.
