Which NFL Hall of Famer do you wish had played for us?

Barry sanders because he was so fun to watch.
Randy Moss in his prime with kaepernick would have been fun too. Not sure if he counts since he played for us but he was washed up when he arrived.
Reggio white was a monster.
Lawrence Taylor would be my other big one for defense.
I'm also a big ed Reed fan so him in his prime or Merton hanks for style points.

Future hall of famers I wish played for us? Aaron Rodgers before kaep and Calvin johnson.

This. Unquestionably. His talent on those teams would have been unstoppable in a way the NFL has never seen.

Barry also would have been the all-time rushing leader with us because he would have a better O line
and wouldn't have retired early because of the crappy Lions.

did you know he was a 9er fan, and that he wanted to be on the 9ers. Lions didn't want to give him up so he retired

there are quite a few I considered , so many great players ....but the big fish that got away from us was "Reggie White" ...when talk was circulating that he MIGHT sign with us, I was beyond excited and couldn't wait to see the huge impact he was going to make rushing the passer for us ...but sadly he chose the Packers, denying us a shot at seeing one of the greatest of all time in maroon & gold .. another reason why I hate the Packers so much

what about you guys?

Lawrence Taylor
Raider 70s DBs Jack Tatum , Skip Thomas, George Atkinson, Willie Brown
Not all HOfers but collectively? HOF unit!

Including those killers, that would've been no fair. Teams would've cried to the commissioner / tried to start some kind of petition against us
Barry Sanders no question. Pretty sure with Barry on the team trips to the sb wouldnt have ended in 94.
Since Barry has already been said, I will go with another ok state back Thurman Thomas. Great running with outstanding hands, would have been a great fit in our WCO.
With Barry Sanders we would have won the 90's. The whole decade.
Brady instead of Rattay wouldve been huge.
