49ers win NFC West and secure a bye week

Dec 30, 2012 at 4:44 PM--


With the 27-13 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon, the San Francisco 49ers won their second straight NFC West title, securing at least one home game during the NFC playoffs.

However, they got a little more good news after the game when the Minnesota Vikings pulled off a 37-34 victory over the Green Bay Packers, sending the Vikings to the playoffs and elevating the 49ers to the #2 seed, giving them a bye week.

The 49ers will await the strongest winner of the wildcard round as the weakest winner will head to Atlanta to face the Falcons, who are the #1 seed in the NFC.

For those that followed the Vikings-Packers game, Adrian Peterson was 9 yards short of the all-time rushing record.

Why 49ers rookie C Dohnovan West might've gone undrafted

The San Francisco 49ers were considered by many as one of the winners of the undrafted free agent process, signing centers Dohnovan West and Jason Poe alongside a slew of potential contributors to round out their 90-man roster. West, a prospect many in the media believed would be drafted in the mid to late rounds, did not end up hearing his name called, making him one of the most sought-after undrafted free agents of the class. He quickly signed with the 49ers, who reportedly gave him $100,000 in guaranteed money with a $10,000 signing bonus. Why did West go undrafted? Speaking to the media for the first time as a 49er, West dove into the offseason

Rookie minicamp gets underway Friday for 49ers drafted players and undrafted free agents, but before those players take the field, they were hit with a number of questions from reporters during pre-camp media sessions on Thursday. Among the players to speak with reporters on Thursday were wide receiver and third-round pick Danny Gray (SMU), offensive lineman and fourth-round pick Spencer Burford (UT-San Antonio), cornerback and sixth-round pick Tariq Castro-Fields (Penn State), quarterback and seventh-round pick Brock Purdy (Iowa State), and undrafted offensive linemen Jason Poe (Mercer) and Dohnovan West (Arizona State). 49ers WebZone already discussed what Gray said



Why the 49ers drafted a running back in the third round

By Rohan Chakravarthi

With their first 2022 NFL Draft selection not coming until No. 61 overall, the San Francisco 49ers were required to remain patient without a first-round selection for the first time in the Lynch-Shanahan era due to last year's trade-up to select quarterback Trey Lance with the third overall pick. With that first selection, the 49ers took USC edge rusher Drake Jackson, who some analysts considered a fringe first-round talent, making it shocking that he was still available near the end of the second round. However, with their second selection at pick No. 93, the 49ers surprised many, drafting LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price, who not only was a player at a position of low value, but also a player projected to go potentially one or two rounds later. So, why did
