Joe Staley to Retire

I know 8 years is an eternity in the NFL, but still crazy that we don't have a single player from our 2012 SB team 

When we win #6, Staley, Cowboy, Willis, & Gore get SB rings

Being on the all decade team will certainly help his HOF candidacy, as will the proliferation of additional all pro teams (such as PFF). Hoping he gets in.

Shame he never got the ring he deserved.

Gave everything he had throughout his career.

Will never forget that pass he caught.

Not going to lie, that's kind of a bust for a first round pick....though still better than AJ Jenkins

I’m not one of those guys that likes to examine OL play. Favorite players to watch for me are LBs. But Staley is still one of my favorite niners ever. Really really hope they can keep him around the team in some capacity. Coach, consultant, ball boy, I don’t really care, but I want his personality in that locker room on a daily basis.

Yeah, I actually think his longevity and getting props from sites like PFF and being on the all decade team eventually gets him in. If he won a ring or two, he's pretty much a lock to get in.

The only problem is, does anything separate him from Willie Anderson who is not in the hall ?

I think bigger issue is all the studs in his own era. Forget Willie Anderson, just look at his competition from his own peers. Whitworth, Thomas, Peters, Williams, Brown, Smith etc. No chance he is a first ballot HOFer so his candidacy is going to overlap with some of the guys I mentioned who have cases for stronger resumes.

A bunch of HOF voters who lets be real know very little about OL, will be relying on stuff like this to make their decision as well as accolades like six time Pro Bowler etc.

Hope to see you in the booth, Joe!

Yep that crossed my mind too. He's got the character for TV land.
