The Winners

Representing the number 12--John Brodie. This is an easy one.  Trent Dilfer wore Brodie's number to bring more attention to the fact that Brodie is not ensrhined in the Hall of Fame.

Representing the number 13--Shaun Hill. I guess QBs must be a superstitious lot since there have only been three players in all of 49ers history to wear that number.

Representing the number 14--Y.A. Tittle. Another easy choice. Sadly Tittle's best years were after he was traded to the Giants.
