The 49ers may be running at the moment as the No. 2 team in the NFC behind defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay, but they have more Pro Bowl players this season than any other team in the conference. Eight Niners were named to the NFC squad on Tuesday – tying New England for the most of any NFL team – and 10 other San Francisco gained recognition as Pro Bowl alternates.
