Lee Earns Weekly NFC Award

Posted by Alex Espinoza on December 21, 2011 – 12:44 PM

Punter Andy Lee has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week after a stellar contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football.

Lee joins wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., who won the award in Week 1, as 49ers  to be named Special Teams Players of the Week this season. Detroit wide receiver Calvin Johnson was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week while Atlanta defensive end John Abraham took home NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.

  •  Lee placed four of his six punts inside the 15-yard line and had a net average of 49.2 yards per punt in the 49ers’ 20-3 win over Pittsburgh.
  • In a game in which field position played a key role, four of Lee’s six punts were downed inside the 15-yard line and the other two went for 57 and 62 yards.
  • His six punts gave the Steelers starting field position at the five-, 16-, 10-, eight-, 14- and 12-yard lines; an average starting spot of 10.8.
  • Lee leads the NFL with a 44.1-yard net average and has placed 26 punts inside the 20-yard line this season. He leads the NFC averaging 50.4 yards per punt.
  • In his eight season from Pittsburgh, this is Lee’s first career Player of the Week Award.
  • Lee is the first punter in team history to be honored. He and Green Bay’s Tim Masthay (Week 13) are the only punters to be named Special Teams Player of the Week this season.

    Andy Lee is another light’s out player in our team. It was a pleasure to watch him put the Squeelers around their own 10 yard line everytime he punted that ball. I just laughed. The best one was that punt he punted from our endzone where it ended up on the Steelers 13 yard line……that was just awesome, they were thinking for once we are going to get good field position….just awesome Lee.
