NaVorro Bowman visits accident victim injured on her way to 49ers game

Jan 10, 2017 at 9:21 PM--


It was New Year's Day and Sienna, a San Francisco 49ers fan from Santa Maria, California, was on her way up the coast to Santa Clara with two others, probably excited to watch her beloved team. Unfortunately, she never made it to the game. The vehicle that she was traveling in was involved in a car accident before they arrived. Two strangers, who were driving next to the vehicle as the accident occurred stopped and were among the people that helped until medical personnel could get to the scene. Sienna's mother, Kristina, called the good samaritans "two angels."

Thankfully, everyone in the car survived. While one within the car suffered a couple of broken ribs and the other a gash on the head, Sienna suffered a broken leg and fractured lower vertebrae. While in the hospital, she went through three surgeries pretty serious surgeries but was able to finally leave the hospital on Tuesday after remaining there for 10 days.



An experience like this has obviously taken its toll on the family and friends of Sienna, who we hope and pray recovers soon. Prior to being released from the hospital, Sienna received a visit from her favorite 49ers player, NaVorro Bowman, who heard about the tragedy and decided to bring her a new jersey to replace the one she was wearing during the morning of the incident.



While meeting with Sienna, Bowman told her, "When you get back up and walking, I've got sideline passes for whatever game you want to go to, okay? And I'll make sure they know you went through what you went through and you overcame it, okay?"

As of this posting, Sienna is making the three-and-a-half hour journey home with her mother. Stay strong Sienna. Like the 49ers and the Niner Faithful, we're rooting for you.

The San Francisco 49ers made headlines and generated a lot of interest in this year's draft when the team traded up to the No. 3 overall pick in March, targeting North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance. Of course, the Niners' brain trust of head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch kept its preference under wraps for the month between the trade and calling in the actual selection. Lance didn't even know he would be the pick until Lynch and Shanahan called him on draft night, welcoming him to the 49ers. Some have criticized the move all the way up to No. 3, believing that Lance could have been had with a lower selection. However, the team made it clear that the move into the top three, with the first two selections being almost a certainty, created a situation



49ers' Kyle Shanahan shares thoughts on 17-game season

The NFL is moving to a 272-game regular season this year, which means each team will have 17 games on its schedule, one more from previous seasons. For the San Francisco 49ers, it will mean the addition of a road game against the Cincinnati Bengals in 2021. Last year, during negotiations for the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, NFL players pushed to prevent the expansion of the regular season. However, they eventually gave in, giving the league the option to add to the schedules. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan acknowledges that the prevalent feeling around the league is that an added game for each team could be overwhelming. The season was too long as it was. However, the writing has been on the walls, so it didn't take anyone by surprise. "I

Hufanga, who was selected by the 49ers in Round 5 of the 2021 NFL Draft after a standout career as a safety at USC, is currently at 49ers facilities with other members of his draft class as he prepares for rookie minicamp this weekend (Friday-Saturday). He spoke to reporters on Wednesday about his relationship to three legendary safeties in particular in Troy Polamalu, 49ers legend Ronnie Lott, and 49ers general manager John Lynch.

Former 49ers GM likes Trey Lance over Zach Wilson

Scot McCloughan spent two seasons as the San Francisco 49ers general manager, helping build the roster eventually taken over by Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh. Before that, he was the team's VP of personnel. Matt Barrows of The Athletic spoke with McCloughan to get his opinion of his former team's most recent draft class. While his pre-draft grades had Zach Wilson, whom the New York Jets selected at No. 2, rated higher than Trey Lance, the 49ers' pick, McCloughan would have personally selected Lance over Wilson. He wouldn't have, however, traded two future first-round picks to move up to get him. The inexperience at North Dakota State and the level of competition created too many unknowns. But personally, he still liked Lance more than
