The San Francisco 49ers are a proud franchise with a rich history of success and rosters littered with Hall of Fame talent.

Recently, former 49ers superstar running back Frank Gore announced that he would be signing a one-day contract to retire as a 49er. Much of the conversation generated from that announcement concerned Gore’s candidacy for enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Many 49er fans agree that Frank Gore is worthy of the honor, and will likely get his gold jacket, but it might not be on his first eligible ballot (eligibility begins five years after retirement). However, there is another 49er running back who hasn’t been elected to the Hall of Fame, but is just as deserving, if not more so—Roger Craig.

Back in February, fellow Webzone writer Marc Adams published a brilliant piece arguing the case for Roger Craig’s enshrinement, which included many quotes from 49er legends like Joe Montana, Steve Young, Jerry Rice, and former owner Eddie DeBartolo, Jr. just to name a few. Do yourself in favor and read it.

Myself and fellow writer Tim Sprinkles (hosts of The Denim Dungeon podcast) joined fellow writer Andrew Pasquini and former Webzone contributor Jason Aponte on their Sprint Right Option podcast to discuss Gore’s candidacy, whether Craig or Gore is more deserving of the honor, and a few other Niner related topics.
