+1. Good inclusion as Barton was tough and a talented anchor at T. By the way, you've got a few years on me as a fan...I was a little kid when I started liking the Niners, just before the DeBerg-Montana QB rotation. It was tough back then as the Niners were bad and I grew up in Raiders country here in the East Bay...unfortunately, the Raiders were good in the '70s. Remember the Niners' slogan, 'Roarin' Back'?
I too grew up in the Easty Bay in the 70s, where if they weren't a Raiders fan they claimed they were fans of Cowboys or Steelers. Tough times, lots of fights on the playground. And I think it was '79 or '80 when the 49ers had the "Roarin' Back" slogan...I had the t-shirt, it had a running back on it, not an actual picture but more like a drawing, might have even been #36 which would've been Paul Hofer's number.
