For the first time since 2005, no 49ers selected to the Pro Bowl

Dec 20, 2016 at 5:10 PM--


The Pro Bowl rosters have been announced and for the first time since 2005, no players on the San Francisco 49ers were selected to the NFL's annual all-star game. OT Joe Staley, the team's best offensive player, had the best shot to make the Pro Bowl but was not voted in. You can view each of the Pro Bowl rosters here.

The 49ers were one of just six teams that do not have a representative in the Pro Bowl. The other five are the Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, New Orleans Saints, New York Jets, and Jacksonville Jaguars. The teams that do not have a representative in the Pro Bowl have a combined record of 25-59. The 49ers, at 1-13, possess the worst record between them. Even the winless Browns managed to get a player, OT Joe Thomas, selected.

The Oakland Raiders lead the AFC with seven representatives. The Atlanta Falcons, who dismantled the 49ers on Sunday to the score of 41-13, lead the NFC with six representatives.

However, it is possible that a 49ers player could still make the Pro Bowl, should a coach decide that an alternate from the team is needed. The Pro Bowl takes place January 29 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. This season's Pro Bowl will return to the traditional AFC vs. NFC game format after three years where team captains selected the rosters via a format similar to fantasy football.

What is he going to do with all of his old clothes? Staley has already donated five garbage bags worth and restocked his closets with new belts.

The analyst ranked the offensive lines throughout the league, and the 49ers group came in at No. 8 on his list. That's six spots higher than the unit ranked during the analytics site's 2019 regular-season rankings. Palazzolo notes that the 49ers' offensive line should be even better in 2020, assuming its five starters can remain healthy. The team replaced
