alternates via MM
-WR Anquan Boldin was chosen as an alternate. He leads the 49ers with 76 catches for 1,030 yards and six touchdowns.
--G Alex Boone was chosen as an alternate.
--SS Donte Whitner was chosen as an alternate. He made the Pro Bowl last season, and he's having an even better year.
--ST C.J. Spillman is an alternate. He was the only 49ers player to lead the fans vote. Yet, the players and coaches did not choose him. This is a big-time snub. Spillman has been outstanding on special teams ever since coming to the 49ers in 2010.
--P Andy Lee, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, is an alternate. He is third in the NFL with a 48.6 average, and fourth with a net 41.9 average.
--FS Eric Reid, a rookie, was chosen as an alternate. He has four interceptions.
