Nov 3, 2021 at 6:03 AM--


San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 8. The honor comes following his team's 33-22 victory over the Chicago Bears.


Samuel recorded six catches for 171 yards (28.5 avg.) in the win, the most receiving yards by any player in Week 8.

This is the first Offensive Player of the Week award for Samuel and he becomes the first 49ers wide receiver to earn the honor since Anquan Boldin during Week 1 of the 2013 season.

Samuel is the first former South Carolina player to win Offensive Player of the Week since wide receiver Sidney Rice during Week 10 of the 2009 season.

San Francisco made Samuel a second-round draft pick in 2019. The third-year wideout has recorded 44 receptions for 819 yards and four touchdowns through seven games this season.

The NFL announced that San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week following the team's 27-24 road victory over the Los Angeles Rams. In Week 18, Gould converted both of his field goals—from 42 and 24 yards—and all three point after attempts for a total of nine points in the overtime win at SoFi Stadium. He also punted twice with an average of 45 yards, including one downed inside the 20-yard line. Gould was forced to take over the punting duties after Mitch Wishnowsky left Sunday's game with a concussion. This is Gould's 10th-career Special Teams Player of the Week award. His previous honors are listed below. 2005 (with Chicago): Week 9 2006 (with



49ers' Trent Williams and Deebo Samuel named to 2021 NFL All-Pro Team

Two San Francisco 49ers players were named to their first NFL All-Pro team. One is third-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel, one of the most dynamic players in the game. The second is the team's nine-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle, Trent Williams. Both were first-team selections. Until now, Williams, a first-round draft pick in 2010, has gone his entire career without being named to an All-Pro team, which may be difficult to believe. On Thursday, a reporter asked the veteran tackle what it would mean to finally be named an All-Pro. "I think it would feel good, finally," Williams responded. "It sucks because I can't let it define my career because I've never made it. If I felt like that's what I needed to define my career, then anything I've done up to



More than coach and player: 49ers' Kyle Shanahan considers Deebo Samuel a friend

When thinking about Kyle Shanahan and Deebo Samuel, you normally refer to the creative methods that Kyle Shanahan utilizes his star receiver and the playmaking ability of Samuel to execute those play calls. However, there's much more to the relationship between the two than just the electrifying performances on Sundays, which Kyle Shanahan alluded to in his daily presser Wednesday. Deebo Samuel has always been an animated and vibrant individual, most notably through his energy on the field and leading up to games on Sundays, so it's no surprise that the head coach and receiver are able to easily connect on a daily basis. "[We talk about anything]," Shanahan stated. "Deebo's a real easy guy to talk to. He's not doing much on special teams during



Aaron Donald knows who Deebo Samuel is, and other things the Rams said about the 49ers this week

When Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald was asked about stopping wide receiver Deebo Samuel after a loss to the 49ers in 2020, Donald gave an answer that was perceived as disrespect. "Who? Who's that?" Donald said. Donald was asked about Samuel again this week and gave a similar answer, albeit more tongue-in-cheek this time. "Who's that?" Donald said with a laugh. Donald then talked a bit about what to expect from Samuel, who had 97 yards and a touchdown on five catches along with five carries for 36 yards and a touchdown in a 31-10 win over the Rams on November 15. "They move him around everywhere," Donald said. "So he's in the backfield, they do
