Less that two weeks left for Pro Bowl voting

Dec 2, 2007 at 1:20 AM--


While we are aware that 1/3 of the Pro Bowl voting system is primarily a popularity contest, there are at least a few San Francisco 49ers players that deserve to make the trip to Hawaii.

While the 49ers' season has not gone as well as expected, there are still plenty of stand out players that deserve to make it.

Despite being ranked 11th among the NFC in tackles with 82, Brian Urlacher leads the votes for inside linebacker. Patrick Willis leads the league in tackles with 110, 14 more than his closest NFC competitor, Nick Barnett.

Punter Andy Lee leads the league in average yards per punt with 49.8. However, Mat McBriar of the Cowboys leads the voting. He is ranked 3rd in the NFC.

Kicker Joe Nedney has the best field goal percentage in the NFC at 88%. In fact, his only misses are from more than 50 yards away. He is perfect inside 50. However, Nicholas Folk of the Cowboys, who ranks second, leads the voting.

Help set things right. Take a minute to vote for these and any others 49ers that you feel are deserving.

"The move was driven by two primary factors," writes Florio. "First, teams who will be playing preseason games on the road won't want to move that many people. Second, given that no teams had on-field practice sessions in the offseason, coaches would rather have the extra time to work with their teams, and that will happen if they don't have to worry about two extra preseason games." For the 49ers, this will mean the elimination of the team's August 15 road game against the Denver

The next inductee into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame sat down with Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area for the latest episode of the 49ers Insider Podcast. Young wore No. 97 during his time with San Francisco, the only team he played for during his 14-year career. Another player wears that number now — defensive end Nick Bosa. What does Young, who spent some time coaching through the college and pro ranks after his NFL career, think about the talented second-year player? "Nick does a good job just in terms of one, being a very knowledgable player," Young told Maiocco. "He sees the game. You can tell he's been surrounded by good coaching.

Bryan DeArdo of CBS Sports decided to look back at the 1980s and identify his top-five rivalries of that decade. There are several to choose from, which might make such a subjective list challenging to create. The San Francisco 49ers were represented within the ranking, not once, but twice. Sitting at No. 5 was the rivalry between the 49ers and the Minnesota Vikings. DeArdo lists the best game of the decade between the two teams as the October 30, 1988 matchup that saw the 49ers beat the Vikings 24-21. San Francisco owned a 5-3 regular-season record against Minnesota during the 80s, winning during
