I've got to give some love to new Hall of Famer, and former 49er, Deion Sanders. By far one of the biggest personalities in the history of the NFL, Deion was part of of the greatest San Francisco 49er teams ever, winning Super Bowl XXIX against the San Diego Chargers 49-26 in one of my own personal all-time favorite games.
Even though Sanders only played for the 49ers one year in 1994, he definitely made his mark that year. He had six interceptions and returned them for an NFL best 303 yards and three touchdowns. He was voted the 1994 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and had an interception in the Super Bowl against the Chargers.
Despite playing on four other teams, including the Super Bowl XXX Cowboys team (Boo!), I do think of him as a 49er. And, to bring back some good memories, here's a link to his music video "Must Be the Money". Classic!
