great list. you went away from the pro set offense, but, its still a good list. Alfred Jenkins name needs to be mentioned as a honorable mention.

My bad :P

Alfred Jenkins would be my #4 receiver and Julio would be my #5 receiver. So many people I want to give an honorable mention to. I need to create a full depth chart :P

Rolland Lawrence deserves more recognition. Dude was a ball hawk. Had he played a while longer he would have a good argument for being in the HoF.

I saw both play. Ryan is good, but Bart was the better quarterback. Ryan can only dream of making the throws that Bart made.

How so?

Ryan has played in 13 fewer games, yet still has:

- 11 more wins than Bart

- 650 more completions than Bart (he has 570 more attempts than Bart)

- a MUCH higher completion % (64% for Ryan, 56% for Bart)

- 5700 more yards than Bart

- 27 more TDs than Bart

- 50 fewer INTs than Bart

- a slightly higher YPA than Bart

- a considerably higher QB rating (91.1 for Ryan, 76.0 for Bart)

- 27 game winning drives... more than Bart's 21

- averaged 66 more yards per game than Bart

- more rushing yard (700 for Ryan, 236 for Bart)

It took Ryan 7 seasons to break nearly every record it took Bart 11 years to set... and Ryan is still going strong. At the end of the day, he will have absolutely CRUSHED everything Bart did.

Matt Ryan is hands down the greatest QB this team has ever had and it's not even close. I get that you're nostalgic for Bart, the guy was great for this team & city in his day, but to say he's better than Ryan is total BS.

Good list. My only changes i would make is Grimes, Brooking and Vaughn. I would put several corners over him. Heck, even Tim Mckyer. Brooking, no. Not a starter. Vaughn, no way he starts over Sanders returning kicks. Very good list you made.

No doubt that Ryan has the stats. I did my formula based on a MIXTURE of stuff. I looked at TALENT, accomplishments and stats to come up with what i did. Going purely on stats, yes, Ryan is the better quarterback. Going on talent, and getting the most out of the talent,

I feel its my duty to educate the young that weren't around to see just how good William Andrews was. We're talking HOF if not for a devastating knee injury. Every bit as powerful as Earl Campbell.

Yes, that is THE Ronnie Lott getting steamrolled along with the rest of the 49ers defense....

And then there was this....

By the way, those uniforms in the video- We need those back Arthur.
