49ers’ Kyle Shanahan shocked by Nick Bosa All-Pro snub

Jan 14, 2022 at 2:39 PM--


Two San Francisco 49ers players—tackle Trent Williams and wide receiver Deebo Samuel—were named to the 2021 NFL All-Pro Team. Noticeably absent from the new list of All-Pros was defensive end Nick Bosa, who finished behind T.J. Watt, Myles Garrett, Robert Quinn, and Maxx Crosby in the voting.

At least one person inside the 49ers organization felt the third-year pass rusher was snubbed.

"I definitely think Bosa should be there; there's no doubt about that," head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Friday. "I'm shocked that—I don't think people appreciate how good Bosa is, play-in and play-out. I've heard people talk about him for Comeback Player of the Year, and every time they say that, I can't believe he hasn't been mentioned in Defensive Player of the Year [talk]. So, that was a surprise to me."

Fans probably felt the same as Shanahan regarding the 24-year-old defender failing to make the 2021 NFL All-Pro Team. Bosa recorded 52 tackles, 21 tackles for a loss, 32 quarterback hits, and 15.5 sacks through his 17 games this season, per Pro Football Reference.

The San Francisco 49ers remain a popular team in the Los Angeles area, but Sunday's crowd at SoFi Stadium for the playoff-impacting game against the Los Angeles Rams was wild. The Rams were the home team, but you couldn't tell. That's because the crowd was dominated by 49ers fans, forcing the Rams to play in a hostile environment on their own turf. It got so bad for the Rams that the crowd noise forced the offense to use a silent count during critical moments in the game. It was too loud to ignore. "It was a tough environment for us to communicate in really the whole second half," Rams quarterback Matthew

It's time for NFL teams to start thinking about exercising the fifth-year options of their first-round picks in the 2019 NFL draft. That includes some pretty big names, like Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. The window to exercise those options opened on Monday, with the deadline set for May 2. NFL Media analyst Marc Ross went through each first-round pick from 2019, voting "Yes" or "No" to indicate whether he feels their respective teams should exercise the fifth-year option.
