    I would be voting for quite a few niners that deserve to go to the Pro Bowl. Unfortunately, the voting website is in disarray and you can not get past choosing Wide Receiver’s. So many of our guys deserve a chance to play in that game. Keep it up niners… we are well on our way!!

    Davis, Wilis, and, most importantly, Aubrayo Franlin deserves it as well. Top 5 NT in NFL this year, in my opinion.

    I created a script that runs constantly on my computer voting for all of the 49ers players over and over. Submits 1 votes every 30 sec.

    I think most of the “D” should be going to the Pro-Bowl, but if not all at least Justin Smith, Takeo Spikes, Patrick Willis, and Aubrayo Frankilin should be in the mix……….GO NINERS Let’s get Our Super Bowl Back

    Vernon Davis,Patrick Willis,Aubrayo Frankilin,Justin Smith,Takeo Spikes,Andy Lee should all go to the probowl.I know thats being a little gredy because I’m a Niner fan. Realisticly the Niners would probably be undifeated if we had a solid QB. I hate to be a jerk but Alex Smith and Shaun Hill both are the most inconsistant QBs alive. Their is no hope for them with the Niners.We need A marquee QB then the Niners will fly!

    Justin Smith, Frank Gore ,Takeo Spikes, Patrick Willis, and Aubrayo, Franklin will goes to the pro bowl.Lets not forget Andy Lee Who is punting the ball with distance and marksmanship.The Niners really need to not have faith in Alex Smith or Shaun Hill.Both have no hope to leading our Niners to a winning season. I can’t believe the organization has even the slightest bit of faith because they both get lucky at times, when it matters they only proven that they will choke.
