Photo captures 49ers tackle Trent Williams’ response to Cowboys fans trying to provoke him

Jan 18, 2022 at 2:30 PM--


Cooper Neill, a Dallas-based photographer and journalist, captured a great photo of San Francisco 49ers tackle Trent Williams following Sunday's playoff victory over the Dallas Cowboys. It shows the All-Pro tackle all smiles while interacting with Cowboys fans, even as two of them expressed their displeasure by raising their middle finger at the 6-foot-5, 320-pound behemoth of a man.

Pro Football Focus shared the photo, and it's hard to disagree with their comment that it belongs in the Hall of Fame. The still of Williams at AT&T Stadium is quickly becoming a fan-favorite on social media.


Williams has been to the playoffs three times over his career. Sunday was his first time experiencing a postseason win. His previous two playoff games were with the Washington Football Team.

"It feels better than any accolades anybody can give me," Williams said after the win against Dallas. "This is the best feeling in the world, and obviously it's short-lived because it's a tournament, so we've got another big game next week, but it's the best feeling."

Williams fought through an elbow injury to play in the Wild Card matchup after missing the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams.

"I was so happy for Trent," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game. "I don't think people realize how much Trent enjoys playing football. Any time you've got guys that talented, which he is as talented, to me, as anyone on the planet, they can show up and do [things] better than most people.

"What separates Trent is he enjoys it. I mean, he tries to get after people. He loves playing. When he practices, he practices only one way. ... One of the reasons he wanted to come here was to try to contend, and we didn't have that team last year. And I'm just really happy for him and everyone else in there that they're getting a little taste of this."

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



Why PFF believes 49ers signing Julio Jones makes sense

With the free-agency frenzy long gone and the NFL Draft behind us, NFL teams will move toward tweaking their rosters in preparation for the 2022 season. 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,



Do the 49ers currently have what it takes to win Super Bowl LVII?

When we last saw them, the San Francisco 49ers were leaving the field after a devastating loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game. The 49ers made a lot of moves during free agency. Some were positive, like adding a starting cornerback in Charvarius Ward. Some were negative, like not bringing back players D.J. Jones and Laken Tomlinson. But the team has added a large draft class, as well as a large group of undrafted free agents. The 49ers have also experienced changes to the coaching staff, front office, and scouting departments. It's been an offseason of transformation so far, and we're still almost three months away from training camp. Next week, the NFL schedule comes out, so we should have a better feel for how the season may play out. For
