Daily Madden: Who’s On The 49ers’ Mt. Rushmore?

“It’s easy to say would you put Steve Young in there,” John said. But the picks are limited to four, and adding one means removing another. “I’d put Steve Young in there. I may put guys like Hugh McElhenney in there. I may put a guy like Joe Perry in there. I may put a guy like John Henry Johnson from that million dollar backfield (in there). I may throw a Y.A. Tittle in there. Those were guys that were really a big part of the 49ers also, although in a different era. They’re all in the Hall of Fame too.”
