The All-Modern Era 49ers team

If you made an All-Pro roster for the 49ers from the beginning of the Walsh era (1979) until the current 2013 team, what would the team look like? Only 1 spot per position, based on impact to the team and/or longevity. (2nd WR spot must be a secondary WR at the time, not just the 2nd best WR1.) Since we played both the 4-3 and the 3-4, pick 2 DT and 2 ILB's.

QB- Joe Montana
RB- Frank Gore
FB- Tom Rathman
WR1- Jerry Rice
WR2- John Taylor
TE- Vernon Davis
LT- Joe Staley
LG- Guy McIntyre
C- Jesse Sapolu
RG- Randy Cross
RT- Harris Barton

LDE- Roy Barker
DT- Bryant Young
DT- Dana Stubblefield
RDE- Justin Smith
LOLB- Charles Haley
MLB- Patrick Willis
MLB- NaVorro Bowman
ROLB- Aldon Smith
LCB- Deion Sanders
RCB- Eric Wright
SS- Tim McDonald
FS- Ronnie Lott

K- Ray Wersching
P- Andy Lee

I noticed weve had a pretty sad group of CB's overall in the last 35 years. Lott counted as a FS, so that didnt leave much. Deion's impact in 1994 alone won him a spot. Weve also done a pretty pathetic job of finding a good 2nd WR after the John Taylor days. Outside the brief window when Rice and Owens were good at the same time, its been pretty rough. Thank goodness for Anquan Boldin.

Id put this team up against anyone elses from the same time span.

Yes, I know, this is very much an offseason thread, but its a fun concept.
This is certainly more fun than krapands**tting.

QB- Joe Montana
RB- Frank Gore
FB- Tom Rathman
WR1- Jerry Rice
WR2- Michael Crabtree
TE- Vernon Davis
LT- Steve Wallace

LDE- Justin Smith
DT- Bryant Young
DT- Dana Stubblefield
RDE- Aldon Smith
LOLB- Charles Haley
MLB- Patrick Willis
MLB- NaVorro Bowman
ROLB- Lee Woodall
LCB- Tim McKyer
RCB- Eric Wright
SS- Tim McDonald
FS- Ronnie Lott

K- Ray Wersching

If Deion counts, then Larry Allan, Ricky Jackson, Kevin Green, Rod Woodson and Chris Doleman should count too. But they were more like hired guns.

Deion only counts because outside Eric Davis, there was pretty much no other good options at the LCB spot. I got pretty literal with the positions. Considering he won DPOY in his only year here, and was a huge factor in our SB run that season, I gave him the spot.

Tim McKyer was a two time All-Pro and three time Super Bowl champion.
