The NFL has selected 17 finalists to make the Hall of Fame in 2010, with possible first-ballot entrants Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith and Tim Brown among them.
The field is rounded out by Cris Carter (a fairly surprising 2009 snub), Russ Grimm, Richard Dent, Roger Craig, Charles Haley, Dermonti Dawson, Cortez Kennedy, Rickey Jackson, Shannon Sharpe, Andre Reed, Floyd Little, John Randle, Don Coryell, and Dick LeBeau. Between four and seven of them will be elected on February 6. Rice and Smith are the obvious shoe-ins. Fri, Jan 8, 2010 05:44:00 PM

The 49ers have decided against issuing Isaac Bruce the No. 80.

Bruce never asked for Jerry Rice's old number, but the 49ers decided it wasn't a good idea to even offer it. They'll probably retire the number after Rice is inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He'll be eligible in 2010.

Jerry Rice has given Isaac Bruce the go-ahead to wear No. 80 for the 49ers.

"I have always respected Isaac Bruce," Rice said. Somehow the number was never retired, but no 49er has worn it since Rice's last year in San Francisco (2000). Bruce, who ranks third all-time in receiving yards behind only Rice and Tim Brown, has worn the No. 80 all 14 seasons he's been in the league.

Former 49ers coach Bill Walsh passed away Monday at the age of 75 after a long battle with leukemia.

Walsh's influence goes far beyond his three Super Bowl titles and the seven-straight top-five offensive rankings to end his career. His West Coast offense based around short timing patterns revolutionized offensive strategy. His personnel and organizational techniques also continue to influence the league today.

Jerry Rice will announce his retirement at an afternoon press conference Monday.

Rice was buried at No. 5 on the Denver depth chart and didn't see the point of continuing on. It's easy to make a case for Rice as the greatest offensive football player of ever. He finishes his career ranked first all-time in receptions, receiving yards, Rush/Receiving TDs, and yards from scrimmage. There is no one close to him in most categories.
