49ers kicker Robbie Gould named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Jan 12, 2022 at 6:50 AM--


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 Chicago): Week 16
  • 2015: (with Chicago): Week 4
  • 2017 (with San Francisco): Weeks 13
  • 2017 (with San Francisco): Weeks 15
  • 2018 (with San Francisco): Weeks 2
  • 2018 (with San Francisco): Weeks 15
  • 2019 (with San Francisco): Week 16
  • 2020 (with San Francisco): Week 12
  • 2021 (with San Francisco): Week 18

Gould is the sixth kicker with at least 10 Special Team Player of the Week awards, joining Adam Vinatieri (19), Matt Prater (14), John Carney (13), Jason Hanson (12) and Justin Tucker (12).

The NFL will unveil the league's complete 272-game 2022 schedule on Thursday night at 5:00 p.m. PT. It is common for select week-to-week opponent matchups to leak before the official announcement. I've created this tracker to collect those leaks as the official schedule release time approaches. As usual, the San Francisco 49ers will meet each NFC West team twice. On May 4, the NFL revealed that the 49ers will travel to Mexico City on November 21 to face the Arizona Cardinals at Estadio Azteca—a Week 11 primetime matchup on ESPN's Monday Night Football. The 49ers will face the third-place teams in the NFC East, NFC North, and AFC East. The team is also slated to play the entire NFC South and AFC West. NFL Kickoff Weekend will begin on



The 49ers are content with Jimmy Garoppolo on their roster

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch told KNBR this past Monday that the organization appeared close to trading starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo earlier in the offseason, but those talks came to a screeching halt when the decision was made for the 30-year old signal-caller to have surgery on his injured shoulder. Lynch later mentioned that the team continued to have dialogue surrounding Garoppolo during the NFL Draft, but it appeared teams were hoping to secure his services at a discounted price. Lynch also mentioned that teams typically don't rush out to trade for a player following surgery until they know they've made a full recovery. To me, it almost felt like

It's worth noting that there are still some well-known free agents awaiting offers—names like Jadeveon Clowney and Odell Beckham Jr. Veteran center J.C. Tretter might make sense for the San Francisco 49ers. The team is uncertain about the future of Alex Mack. General manager John Lynch is sounding less confident about the possibility of his starting center returning for his 14th NFL season. However, it's not Tretter that Pro Football Focus analyst Ben Linsey believes would be a good signing by the 49ers. Instead,
