Final Week for Pro Bowl Voting

Posted by Taylor Price on December 14, 2011 – 1:57 PM

There will be no more chances to vote for the 2012 Pro Bowl once the 49ers meet the Pittsburgh Steelers for the latest edition of “Monday Night Football.”

Pro Bowl voting concludes Dec. 19, the same night the 49ers host the Steelers for their regular season home finale at Candlestick Park. So with Pro Bowl voting entering the two-minute warning stage of the fourth quarter, let’s take a look at a few of the worthy 49ers candidates.

DT Justin Smith – Smith was recently credited for a sack on Nov. 6 against the Washington Redskins, now giving him 6.5 on the year. Smith has four-straight seasons with at least 6-or-more sacks (’08-’11) making him the third 49ers player to do it. He joins Charles Haley (6 seasons – ’86-’91) and Dwaine Board (4 seasons – ’83-’86). Smith also ranks second in the NFC among defensive tackles in sacks and is tied for third in the NFL.

S Dashon Goldson In the midst of Pro Bowl voting, Goldson has recorded five interceptions in the past seven weeks. Goldson’s five interceptions are the most of his five-year NFL career. His open field hits have been quite impressive as well.

RB Frank Gore – The 49ers all-time rushing king ranks fourth in the NFL with 1,054 rushing yards. Gore’s 72 yards against the Cardinals last week pushed him past the 1,000-yard mark for the fifth time in his seven-year career. Gore ranks third among all NFC rushers, too.

TE Vernon Davis Davis leads the 49ers with five touchdowns while continuing to maintain his reputation as one of the game’s most complete tight ends. Davis averages 11.2 yards per catch and has 49 catches for 548 yards for the season.

K David Akers – With 135 points scored on the year, Akers already has put together the third-best scoring season in 49ers history. It’s the sixth straight season Akers has totaled more than 100 points, too. And with one more made field goal, Akers will tie Jerry Rice’s franchise record of 138 points scored in 1987.

    I’d say give it to Frank Gore. He has worked really hard over the past year to help get the team back on top.Not that they all don’t deserve this honor; I would give them all an award the one outstanding year; I love the niner’s !!!!

    went to probowl earlier this year, Sported Willis probowl jersey( he did not play due to injury) Justin Smith only rep playing,… Realisticly only 5-6 of our Niners will go. So my votes are: NAVARRO/JUSTIN/GORE/PATRICK/CARLOS/AKERS

    These players SHOULD end up in the Pro Bowl. Anything less is a travesty.

    DT Justin Smith
    LB Patrick Willis
    LB Na’Vorro Bowman
    CB Carlos Rogers
    S Dashon Goldson
    RB Frank Gore
    C Jonathan Goodwin
    P Andy Lee
    K David Akers

    Honorable Mention:

    PR/KR Ted Ginn Jr. ** Only reason he doesn’t get in is because Devin Hester plays in the NFC and only one spot is open.

    DE/OLB Aldon Smith ** If he finishes the season strong and ends up with like 17+ sacks, he might just make the roster. Nevertheless, he is a sure fire Pro Bowler in years to come.
