The San Francisco 49ers’ Elite: Rating The Top 25 Niners Of All Time

It's chic to say that Jerry Rice is the greatest player in NFL history.
(OK. You nod your head in agreement and think of your favorite Rice moment in a 49ers' uniform.)
Since even the greatest receiver of all-time needed Joe Montana and Steve Young to get the ball to him, it is possible to question Rice's spot among all-time NFL greats.
(You mumble, "This writer’s an idiot!" or "LMAO!")
I've only followed the 49ers since 1964, so I'm a little fuzzy on the guys who played in the 1950s. From 1964 forward, though, I remember them all. (Long pause. Deep sigh.)
And, well, I don't think Rice is the greatest 49er of all time.
(Don't hate me for being old, er, mature.)
I don't think Super Joe is No. 1 either.
(And, yeah, I feel like I should apologize while the typical 49ers shrieks, "Of course! Patrick Willis! Yeah...dude...he kicks ass..." )
Ah, just read my list, the Top 25 49ers of all time. Don't agree? Make your own list.
