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.

Kyle Shanahan on why it was time for 49ers to transition to Trey Lance; Analyst calls it an unnecessary risk

Mike Tannenbaum made his opinion on the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback situation very clear this week. The former NFL executive turned analyst was asked on ESPN's GetUp if the move from Jimmy Garoppolo, who enjoyed a lot of success in his four-and-a-half year run as the Niners' starting quarterback, to second-year quarterback Trey Lance is a risk. "Yes, and it's an unnecessary one," Tannenbaum said bluntly. "You have a great quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo, who over the last three years has taken your team to the Super Bowl and the [NFC] Championship Game. I love Trey Lance. I think his upside is compelling. But why would you risk not playing Jimmy Garoppolo, especially early, when you have a team that can win right now? "When Jimmy Garoppolo plays, and

The San Francisco 49ers released their first "unofficial" depth chart of the 2022 preseason. It is worth noting that the depth chart was compiled by the 49ers Communications staff and not the coaching staff, thus the "unofficial" label. It offers fans the best guess at what to expect as the team heads into its first preseason game.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance played two drives during Friday's 28-21 preseason win over the Green Bay Packers. This week, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the plan for Lance was to play in Week 1 and Week 3 of the preseason schedule, skipping the August 20 game against the Minnesota Vikings. For now, that "most likely" remains the plan, Shanahan told reporters after Friday night's game. That could change based on how next week goes, though. The 49ers will hold joint practices with the Vikings at the TCO Performance Center in Eagan, Minnesota. "We'll see how it goes, but I'm a lot more into the Wednesday and Thursday practice than the game on
