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.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes leads the fan portion of Pro Bowl voting. He's followed by Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. That probably won't come as a surprise to many. What might be surprising is that just one San Francisco 49ers player is among those leading by position. That would be fullback Kyle Juszczyk, who is obviously deserving. But what about the others? Yes, the 49ers are 4-6 and may not be able to stack enough wins down the stretch to sneak into the playoffs, but some names are deserving. The first name that comes to mind is probably star linebacker Fred Warner, who leads the team in tackles. Green Bay Packers quarterback

Shanahan: It's 'a matter of time' before Robert Saleh becomes a head coach

With head coaching speculation starting to swirl around San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, fans may want to take the next five games to enjoy having him on their team's sidelines while they still have the chance. 49ers fans certainly must have liked what they saw from Saleh and his defense in their team's 23-20 road win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Saleh's defense kept the Rams in check while the 49ers built a 17-3 third quarter lead, then held on when it mattered most as the 49ers notched an upset win on a last-second 42-yard field goal from Robbie Gould. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the 49ers while cooling off a Rams team that seemed to be building momentum as the playoffs approached, but it also served as a reminder that Saleh
