The 49ers once again will be sending nine players to the Pro Bowl. The players selected are Frank Gore, Joe Staley, Mike Iupati, Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman, Aldon Smith, Justin Smith, Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner. Out of the nine, seven of them selected will start.
The Whitner/Goldson are the first safeties from the same team to start a Pro Bowl since 2005.
The 49ers Pro Bowl alternates are Alex Boone, Ahmad Brooks, Anthony Davis, Vernon Davis, Jonathan Goodwin, Andy Lee, Carlos Rogers and CJ Spillman.
We all know however, that none of the players named above will be playing in the Pro Bowl, since they’ll be playing in the Super Bowl instead…
