Well it's the slow season, and one can only look at so many mock drafts, and talk about the lockout so much. With all the anticipating and speculation on who the Niner's might get in the upcoming draft I starting thinking who is my favorite Niner of all time. Of course all the regular names came to mind, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Steve Young, Ronnie Lott. This caused me to think who is my favorite non Hall of Fame 49er of all time, and I found this much more difficult to come up with an answer for.
What I came up with is this. Off of the current roster it would have to be Patrick Willis or Vernon Davis, but current players are not HOF eligible yet so for this post they don't count. Off of previous roster's some of my top names were Ken Norton Jr., Bryant Young, Gary Plummer, Merton Hanks, Brent Jones, Roger Craig, Tom Rathman, and John Taylor.
So who did I come up with...Charles Haley!
Please leave comments and videos of who your favorite non Hall of Fame 49er of all time is. Thank you for reading and I look forward to everyone's ideas.
