2012 pro bowlers

Pro Bowl voting is such a joke. Look at Jeff Saturday; benched for suckitude, but got most fan votes for his position.

Wow nine pro bowlers and eight alternates, amazing! good chance Brian Jennings ends up doing the long snapping also. I'm sure at least a couple of these alternates end up making it due to injuries or players in the SB (hope none make it because we are in the SB obviously) I wish Brooks make it, would be cool to see all 4 of our LBs go. Really says something that with only 2 ILBs both our boys are going.

In addition, Boone, OLB Ahmad Brooks, OT Anthony Davis, TE Vernon Davis, C Jonathan Goodwin, P Andy Lee, CB Carlos Rogers and special teamer C.J. Spillman were named Pro Bowl alternates.

17 count them 17. In my opinion says the coaching staff is the weak link right now down the stretch.
HOF bound


Eric Branch ‏@Eric_Branch #49ers LB Patrick Willis is first player in franchise history to be named Pro Bowler in each of his first six seasons.

Using Pro Bowl voting to indict a coaching staff is one of the funniest things I've read on here -- and that's saying a lot.

Agree. How many Pro Bowler did we have under Singletary?
Congrats to all of them!

I think Crabs got robbed he could've at least been an alternate.

Have you watched the games and the offensive play calling of late? Also going to prevent so early against the Patriots. Changing the basic fabric of the entire offense. has nothing to do with the vote other than to say we have lots of talent and too many times don't use it fully

.
"We do more different things with Kap, as far as running the ball different," Gore said. "So I have to just be more patient with it. (I) don't know if I'm going to get it with the read-option game.

"You read the same thing. You read the same people. Some plays you don't know whether he's going to keep it or not."

On those plays in which Gore lines up behind Kaepernick in the "pistol" formation, Gore said he can't be as aggressive in hitting the hole because Kaepernick is reading the defensive end and might pull the ball from Gore and keep it himself on any given run play.

Statistically, Gore has not been as successful since the change at quarterback. In the six games in which Kaepernick took over as the starter, Gore has carried 98 times for 393 yards (4.0 average) and two touchdowns. In the first nine games with Alex Smith starting, Gore carried 140 times for 753 yards (5.4 average) and five touchdowns.
Congrats!!!
where the f**k is andy lee?

Gore's YPC declined last year late in the season under the "conventional" offense.

I'm not going to overreact and yell for everyone to be fired because of 1 loss.
