If any former 49ers could join this Team...

...who would you pick.

After the Bucs game it seems the 49ers are a legit playoff team. Our division is incredibly weak. We (The Royal We) have one of the best front 7 in the league. ALeX Smith is looking like a top 10 QB. The running game has come around, and dare I say exploded. Andy Lee's leg was roasted in the Fires of Mt Olympus. And even our secondary and O-line looked good last game. However the 49ers still have ways to before entering the conversation as a Super Bowl contender.

So I was wondering, if you could add One former 49er, at the prime of his career, to this Team (for one year) who would it be?

And would that player make the 49ers Super Bowl favorites?

I'm a young'in, and wasn't around for the glory days of 49ers football, so I'll go with an easy answer:

Jerry Rice

Adding the greatest receiver of all time instantly makes our offense one of the best in the league, and certainly a super bowl contender. With Rice, Crabtree, VD, Walker, Morgan and Edwards we have the best receiving corp in the league. He would make the other receivers more effective, by taking double teams, and he would take pressure off the running game. I worry that GB's offense might still be better than the niners, but I'd take our defense over theirs. 

Anyways, I'm interested to see who you'd all choose.
