Week 13 #Vote49ers Pro Bowl Update

Posted by Alex Espinoza on November 27, 2012 – 11:28 AM

The 49ers boast arguably the best quartet of linebackers in the NFL. Ahmad Brooks might not get the national publicity of the other players in his position group — Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman and Aldon Smith — but those around the 49ers know how valuable Brooks is on the left edge of the defense.

On Sunday, the seventh-year veteran showed why the 49ers signed him to six-year extension in the offseason, recording five tackles, 1.5 sacks and an interception return for a touchdown. Brooks, who is vying to be named to his first Pro Bowl, is among a host of 49ers that are making strong cases to be nominated to the NFL’s annual All-Star game. You can vote for San Francisco’s finest at 49ers.com/ProBowl.

Brooks wasn’t the only member of the 49ers to take an interception back to paydirt on Sunday. Hard-hitting safety Donte Whitner hauled in a pick from Drew Brees after a big hit from fellow safety Dashon Goldson, before taking it back 42 yards for a touchdown. It marked the first interception of the year for Whitner and just the second score of his career, to go along with his 55 tackles on the season.

Fullback Bruce Miller has already established himself as a bruising blocker in his second NFL season and a key component to this year’s top-ranked rushing attack. On Sunday, he flashed another side of his game, as he hauled in three catches for 37 yards in the 31-21 victory against New Orleans. Miller was a Pro Bowl alternate in his rookie season but needs your help if he wants to get the nod this time around.

Fans can vote for the 2013 Pro Bowl until Dec. 17 before the AFC and NFC rosters are revealed on Dec. 26 on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access” show.

    Not to worry, 49ers has plenty weapons. We have rookies James, Jacobs will step up. We do need punt return guy backup Ted Ginn. May be use Jenkins.

    Congrat to Kaep. Named Startin QB. To all the Haters out there. NO the niners team will not be influenced or torn apart with Coarch H. decision. Our team is to STRONG for that..!!! If everyone will look at the RED ZONE scores between Smith and Kaep. you will understand the Coach’s decision Kaep. doesn’t rely on Akers to score like A. Smith does.Sorry everyone but the TEUTH hurts,..!!!!!! 90% of Alex Smith’s wins are from the strong Defense holdin down other teams from scoring, also the Great running Game (Gore) and Akers great foot that won most games in 2011-12 Season…..!!!!
