NaVorro Bowman, Joe Staley named to Pro Bowl

Dec 22, 2015 at 5:12 PM--


It was announced today that San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman and LT Joe Staley made the Pro Bowl.



Bowman's selection is impressive because of the devastating injury that he sustained just 23 months ago when he suffered a torn ACL and MCL. Even though he insists he is not yet at 100-percent, he has done enough to return to the Pro Bowl.

Bowman has 136 tackles and two sacks this season. He is tied with Indianapolis Colts LB D'Qwell Jackson for leading tackler in the NFL. During Sunday's 24-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, Bowman had an impressive 12 tackles, earning his highest career grade from Pro Football Focus.

Staley has been part of one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL, but got noticed enough to get the selection. This will be Staley's fifth straight selection to the Pro Bowl.

LG Alex Boone is an alternate selection. He suffered a sprained MCL two weeks ago against the Cleveland Browns and is unlikely to play again this season.

Which San Francisco 49ers team will show up tonight against the Los Angeles Rams? Will it be the team that always plays its division opponent hard, resulting in a six-game winning streak before last season's NFC Championship Game? Or will it be the squad featuring the same sputtering offense on display in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos? Joe Staley believes it will be the former. He feels his former team will find a way to prove their doubters wrong, knocking off the reigning Super Bowl champions. "I was telling people this weekend, everybody's kind of down on the Niners how they're starting, especially offensively, and I think this is going to be a game that reminds everybody that this is a pretty good team still," Staley said during his weekly interview on

49ers vs. Rams: Keys to beating the reigning Super Bowl champs

After a private meeting with patrons on Patreon last night, I decided to ask them what their keys to victory are for Monday night. The cool thing is we all shared the same sentiments, concepts, and concerns regarding the 49ers. If the 49ers want to defeat the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams, they must perform these "Five Keys To Victory." RUN THE BALL Mike Eng from the "Woke Niner Recaps Podcast" said that for the 49ers to win, they must run the ball. The 49ers are sixth overall in rushing without their star running back, Elijah Mitchell. Kyle Shanahan seems to abandon the run when it matters most, but this week, he needs to stick to the run to wear down the Rams' defense. That defense is ranked 10th against the rush, so the advantage should favor the
