NaVorro Bowman calls NFL Network’s Top 100 list “totally bogus”

Jun 8, 2016 at 2:04 PM--


Add San Francisco 49ers ILB NaVorro Bowman to the list of players that are not happy with NFL Network's Top 100 Players list. Last month, it was revealed that Bowman had ranked number 61 on the 2016 version of the annual list, now in its sixth season.

The list is supposedly voted on by players within the league. However, Bowman stated on Wednesday that the list was "totally bogus" and that he has never seen a players ballot or teammate vote for the list. So ... who exactly votes for this thing? It's doubtful we'll get a definitive answer from the NFL.

Perhaps next year he will rank higher within the ranking. Bowman said that he feels great heading into his second season since returning from a devastating knee injury. He stated that his surgically repaired knee feels great, a vast improvement from last season when it was still giving him issues.

Bowman, who played at a high level during his first season back after recovering from a torn ACL and MCL, started all 16 games during his 2015 season with the 49ers. It was his first season without ILB Patrick Willis by his side. During those games, he had 154 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two passes defended and a forced fumble.

The 154 combined tackles were the most of his career and ranked first in the league in 2015. The next closest was LB D'Qwell Jackson of the Indianapolis Colts with 150 combined tackles.

It was unlikely that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suited up on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, serving as rookie Brock Purdy's backup in the NFC Championship Game. Still, there was a slight chance the injured veteran could be healthy enough to be active. The team awaited the results of an X-ray on Tuesday to see how much Garoppolo's broken foot has recovered. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Wednesday and shared that the 49ers got the X-ray results. "I don't expect to have him this week," Shanahan revealed. Garoppolo sustained his injury on December 4. A return for the Super Bowl remains a possibility. A new name was added to the 49ers' injury report. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel will not practice

Brock Purdy impressing Kyle Shanahan as 49ers rookie QB seeks to enter NFL history books

The San Francisco 49ers are now 15-0 when they tie or win the turnover battle. Rookie quarterback Brock Purdy's last interception came on January 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders. He's had moments since then that have come close to resulting in turnovers, but they remained misses by opposing defenses. In Purdy's two playoff games, including Sunday's 19-12 win over the Dallas Cowboys, the quarterback has failed to throw an interception or lose a fumble. He has taken care of the football, and head coach Kyle Shanahan credits that as one of the reasons why the 49ers' impressive 12-game win streak could continue. "Yes, he's been unbelievable with that," Shanahan said via a conference call on Monday. "I think that's the number one thing he's done, and to be
