Which former 49er players deserve to be in the hall of fame?

Which former 49er players deserve to be in the hall of fame?

I was looking the other day at our players in the HOF after the Eddie D conversation on Monday night. I really can't believe the Haley issue. He was the best defender in the league for 5 years. I watched him as a rookie against the Bears on MNF game where he literally stopped the Bears by himself. Tim McDonald was a pure beast 6 probowls. Craig was the first player to pull off 1000 yards rushing and receiving. That's only been done by HOF players. Jones is iffy but should get a discussion. Young was absolutely amazing. Problem he had was that he wasn't loud and self promoting like Sapp. Sapp has 7 more sacks. Given the length of Young's injury from Kenny Norton that would be the difference. Mods when I searched all forums for hall of fame it listed three but none were on this subject. If it is redundant please delete. TY

He isn't a player
Roger Craig

I have reservations about Haley but no question Roger should be there.

Craig, how can you leave the first player to rush and receive for 1,000 yards each out of the hall of fame?
Losing Charles Haley may have cost us a SB or two. We didn't have anyone like him until Aldon came on the scene. Haley helped put Dallas on top. The man won 5 Super Bowls.

That is truth. Hated seeing him abuse Steve Wallace and Steve Young. Bryant Young is the most deserving. Can't say enough good things about that guy. Completely important piece of our 94 SB run. Think about it. As a rookie he was thrown in the mix with the vaunted Dallas O line and performed.
If Tim McDonald's son didn't grab Vernon Davis' nutsack then I'd pick him

yeah he has to be in. he is footballs version of dennis rodman, a wild character who had winning following him wherever he went. rodman, for the record got into the bball hof in the past 2 or 3 years
Haley not being in is ridiculous. I don't care if he was an a-hole, the guy could flat out play.

I love Roger, who along with Brent Jones and Rathman are three of my favourite 5 Niners ever, and his 1000-1000 accomplishment was monumental, but there are just too many RBs in the Hall.
Its a sham Craig and Haley are not in it.
