Welcome to the wall of fame. You may be wondering exactly what this is, so I'll tell you. This section is devoted exclusevly to 49ers greats, whether they be active or retired. If you have a suggestion of a player that you think diserves it's entry here, let me know. This page will continually be updated with new players.

Joe Montana is quite possible the most deserving for this page. He was an all time 49ers great and is sure to be inducted into the hall of fame, as soon as he is eligible. Joe set countless QB records not only on the team but accross the whole NFL. The 49ers will always be remembered as Joe's Team.
Jerry Rice is a close second to Joe. Jerry is considered to be the GREATEST receiver of all time. However some seem to guess that he could be the best player of all time. Jerry has set every significant receiving record there is. Most significantly are points, catches, and TDs.
Dwight Clark was one of the key steping stones in the sucess of the 49ers. Had he never made the catch the 9ers may still be trying to eclipse the Cowboys. His most memorable momment was when he made "the catch". Dwight now works as an executive with the 49ers.
He was one of the most ferocious hard hitting players to ever play in the NFL. Ronny Lott was the 49ers secondary for much of the '80s. It was he who offenses feared. He was later traded to the Raiders
Roger Craig was argueably the best 49ers running back ever. He was quick and very strong. He and Tom Rathman (below) were an unstoppable tandem for much of the '80s.
Tom Rathman was an incredible fullback. He made holes in the line so large a truck could have drove through them. He is now working as the backfield coach and the 49ers.
Brent Jones was one of the all time greates 49ers. His competitiveness and optimism were some of his many great charecturistics. Brent was the first 49ers tight end to eclipse the 400 reception mark.
Steve Young, the prototype 49ers QB, with quick feet and a good arm. He is still trying to out run Montana's long shadow, but has done an excellent job with the team, and is probably the second best Qb the 49ers ever had. He can do it all.
John Taylor was known as the other 49ers receiver. Starting opposite Jerry Rice for almost your whole carear will do that to you. Taylor was the perfect compliment to Rice, and a safety blanket for both Montana and Young. He had great hands and skills, and always could be relied on.
No Picture Available Hardy Brown played for the Niners in the early fifties. Playing linebacker he was one of the hardest hitting football players to grace the field. Brown had the capability to knock players out with one hit, in fact he was known for that. Players used to fear getting near him in case he landed a hit on them. Hardy Brown should always be remembered as a 49er that would never give up, and give his full 110 percent.
