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.

With a couple of notable exceptions, the San Francisco 49ers stifled the New York Giants on the ground Sunday, which played a big role in the team's 36-9 blowout win at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The 49ers held the Giants to 66 yards on 15 carries, with 49 of those yards coming on runs from quarterback Daniel Jones. It was part of a dominant effort overall that saw the 49ers hold the Giants to 231 total yards while limiting them to 13 first downs and preventing them from running a single play in the red zone. "I think it's all about just everybody doing their job," 49ers linebacker Fred Warner said after the win.
