49ers fans rank as the best in the NFC West according to study

Jul 11, 2015 at 10:15 AM--


Mike Lewis and Manish Tripathi at Emory Sports Marketing Analytics released their list of the best fans in the NFL. They define "best" as "the most avid, engaged, passionate and supportive fans."

The Dallas Cowboys took the top spot. Interesting considering that San Francisco 49ers fans, who came in 10th overall, took over AT&T Stadium in Dallas during week one last season, essentially making it feel like a home game for the visiting 49ers.

NFL.com states that the study relied heavily on market outcomes like attendance, prices, and revenues, so take it for what it is worth. Obviously a fan base that spends larger amounts of money on their team are likely to get a higher ranking.

The 49ers did rank at the top among NFC West teams. The next closest division team was the Arizona Cardinals. The rival Seattle Sehawks, who have one of the loudest home stadiums in the NFL, ranked dead last among NFC West teams.

Below is a list of where the NFC West teams ranked in the study.

San Francisco 49ers (10th)
Arizona Cardinals (19th)
St. Louis Rams (23rd)
Seattle Seahawks (26th)

The San Francisco 49ers are riding a 12-game winning streak into the NFC Championship Game, where they'll face off against the Philadelphia Eagles, who ended up as the No. 1 seed in the conference this season after a league-best 14-3 year. Part of that success for the 49ers has come with the revelation of rookie quarterback Brock Purdy, who has won each of his first seven starts after replacing quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo following the veteran's foot injury against the Miami Dolphins. Purdy is amongst great company in the Championship round, facing off against Jalen Hurts this weekend, while potentially seeing Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes or Cincinnati Bengals signal-caller Joe Burrow, should the 49ers make the Super Bowl.

The Philadelphia Eagles might have been the better team in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. But were they 31-7 better than the San Francisco 49ers? Probably not. Of course, we are all left wondering what might have happened had rookie quarterback Brock Purdy not been hurt in the first quarter. The 49ers felt they had prepared a great game plan for their bout with the Eagles. Unfortunately, that quickly got thrown out the window. "We were really excited for today, and we really wanted an opportunity to play that team," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game. "They played great, and they did good things, but we wish we had a little bit better
