Considering Gore is now considered the greatest RB in franchise history, Patrick Willis is the greatest LB in 49ers history, and Vernon Davis has to now be considered the best TE in 49ers history, they all deserve it for sure. Plus all 3 are career long Niners.
yea but we could only retire so many numbers. I don't think Davis will be retired since we already have 80 and 87 retired. Patrick Willis may have a case and Gore may have one also.
Recievers can wear 10-19 now, so retiring 85 isnt a problem. The only players who can wear numbers in the 80's are WR and TE, and we would still have a pool of 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19, 81, 82, 83, 84, 86, 88, 89 left.
