Add this to the list of interesting lists that are very interesting. SI.com recently released a list of the top players by jersey numbers. Starting from 00-99, the list consists of six 49ers and five Raiders.
Representing the Raiders are:
Representing the 49ers are:
Current 49ers head coach Mike Singletary also made the list at No. 50 as a linebacker for the Chicago Bears.
Such a list is intriguing as there are some numbers that have clear winners (like John Elway's No. 7) and some that could be debated (No. 8 with Troy Aikman over Steve Young). The story behind jersey numbers is unique and this list, for the most part, got it right.
I like lists. It keeps things in order and is always debated. Like the NFL Network's Top 10 series, there's always room for debate.
