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.

"You're going to be the No. 1 team in the NFC": Adam Rank predicts 14-3 record for 49ers

By David Bonilla

Yes, everyone remembers NFL Media analyst Adam Rank predicting a three-win season for the San Francisco 49ers in 2019. That team went on to win 13 games before a playoff run that ended just short of a championship. Last year, Rank predicted a 12-4 record. Instead, San Francisco won half as many games after suffering through one of the most injury-plagued seasons NFL fans had seen in decades. Rank gets a pass because no one saw that one coming. The Niners are healthier entering the 2021 season and look to prove that last season, not 2019, was the anomaly. So what is Rank's prediction for this year's



Frelund's simulations project 10 wins, NFC West crown for 49ers, at least 6 TDs for George Kittle

It's worth noting that NFL Network analyst Cynthia Frelund actually projects 10.1 wins for the San Francisco 49ers, but I didn't need a bunch of social media posts asking what 0.1 of a win is without bothering to read this. Frelund ran her most simulations to date, a whopping 300,000 that included every regular-season game. That's a total of 81.6 million simulated games. She then took her data and vetted it with several experts to determine the projected win total for each team in 2021 based on those simulations. The San Francisco 49ers ended up with the third-most projected win average in the NFC, with only the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (12.5) and



George Kittle shares what he admires about Trey Lance, reveals 49ers' advantage in tough NFC West

Trey Lance received four snaps against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. It wasn't a whole lot of experience for the San Francisco 49ers' developing rookie quarterback, but it was better than nothing—a point that head coach Kyle Shanahan made yesterday. "I think getting a guy any playing time when he's the number two quarterback helps his development more than getting no playing time," Shanahan responded when questioned about whether or not the limited opportunities hurt Lance's development. Despite the limited in-game snaps, All-Pro tight end George Kittle likes what he's seen from his rookie quarterback. He joined ESPN's Keyshawn, JWill &

The NFC West is on a roll, which isn't necessarily great news for the San Francisco 49ers when it comes to the success of their division rivals. Through two weeks of NFL play this season, the NFC West is 7-1 as a whole. That, of course, includes the 49ers' Week 2 17-11 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Seattle Seahawks became the first NFC West to lose a game, falling to the Tennessee Titans 33-30 in Week 2. The Los Angeles Rams beat the Indianapolis Colts 27-24 and the Arizona Cardinals edged the Minnesota Vikings 34-33. There is a three-way tie for the division lead, proving what many believed—that the NFC West would likely be the most competitive division this season. "NFC West,
