Nov 28, 2022 at 1:34 PM--


According to an NFL press release, the following three San Francisco 49ers players lead their respective positions in Pro Bowl votes for the NFC.


For those wondering where some other 49ers players stand, ESPN's Nick Wagoner states that Christian McCaffrey is the second running back in the voting for the NFC, behind Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants. In addition, George Kittle is second among NFC tight ends, behind T.J. Hockenson of the Minnesota Vikings.

Fred Warner is third among NFC linebackers, and Talanoa Hufanga is seventh among NFC strong safeties.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson leads all players in the balloting with 90,313 votes. He is followed by Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (87,384 votes), while Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (85,785), Barkley (83,947), and Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill (83,576) round out the top five.

Fans can vote for their favorite players using the official NFL Pro Bowl ballot. Starting December 1, fans will also be able to vote directly on Twitter for the final two weeks of voting by tweeting the first and last name of the player, the player's official Twitter handle, or a hashtag including the player's first and last name. All methods must include the hashtag #ProBowlVote.

The Pro Bowl Games will be a week-long celebration of player skills featuring a new format that spotlights flag football. The annual Pro Bowl game between the selected players has been eliminated. Instead, the new multi-day AFC vs. NFC competition will culminate in an action-packed flag football game between Pro Bowl players at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday, February 5, 2023.

How the 49ers have advanced their offense without changing their core identity

The San Francisco 49ers have developed into an elite-tier offense over the past seven weeks, averaging over 34 points a game with quarterback Brock Purdy at the helm, while ranking second in DVOA since they acquired Christian McCaffrey. However, they've run a similar offense since the arrival of head coach Kyle Shanahan, which bodes the question of how the 49ers have remained at their elite levels on that side of the ball, despite the amount of game film being produced on their tendencies. The answer: advancing their offense by adding a layer of intricacy, even though the idea behind plays is what San Francisco has run for the past few years. Right tackle Mike McGlinchey spoke on the topic to reporters this week, highlighting the difference between

The San Francisco 49ers are facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship on Sunday, with the winner facing off against either the Cincinnati Bengals or the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. This is a stage familiar for the 49ers, as they've made the NFC Championship Game in three of the past four seasons now, losing to the Los Angeles Rams last season, while going to the Super Bowl in 2019 after a win over the Green Bay Packers. However, despite seeing consistent success, the 49ers haven't accomplished their No. 1 goal: winning a Super Bowl, which has left a chip on their shoulder as they strive to hit that goal this season.
