Eight Niners named to Pro Bowl

Awesome...see what winning does. I agree, Bowman should've made the team...maybe he will as an alternate when guys start dropping out due to injury/apathy. This is just another affirmation that Harbaugh absolutely r-o-c-k-s.

different conferences though, you could argue if aldon was in the AFC he'd make it as well. jared allen and babin have tons of sacks

Well Jason Peters is the Tackle that made it. I guess the NFC is weak on Tackles at the moment.
Lombardi also questions how Aldon Smith and Navarro Bowman are not on the list. Of course a case could easily be made for London Fletcher over both ILB on the nfc squad.

i guess so. I guess im coming off as a hater, but Staley is NOT a pro bowl caliber tackle imo. He was garbage the first half of the season. Hes been better as of late, but dude was good for a sack and 1-2 false starts a game.

Yeah. London Fletcher has been snubbed way too many times over his career.

Totally. Aldon has long term success ability. He's proven it in college by playing with above average success on a broken leg. Von Miller can be figured out much easier than Aldon. Von Miller has already shown how an injury can vastly reduce his affectiveness.

Well the fact that Aldon wasn't even ON the fan ballot is a good argument, but the talkign heads wil ask "How could Aldon be DROY over Von Miller if Miller made the Pro Bowl and Aldon didn't". Thats about as deep as their analysis will go.
It's absolutely surreal, considering where we thought this team was five month ago, to be on the cusp of 13-3 and be tied with the Patriots with the most Pro Bowlers.
we got the most in the NFC and only the Pats equal us in the league. Well done boys, well f'n done!

Aldon Smith has 14 sacks with a game left and he didn't make the pro bowl... how the f**k did that happen?
