Two 49ers made the NFL’s All Pro workforce this season, and neither one is Nick Bosa.
Deebo Samuel and Trent Williams each have been named first-team All Pro, and each deserve the honour. Williams has been the most effective left deal with within the NFL for a decade, whereas Samuel emerged this season because the premier offensive weapon in soccer no matter place.
But should not Bosa be an All Pro, too?
He recorded 15.5 sacks — fourth most within the NFL. He had a monster season. You might argue he is among the finest defensive gamers within the NFL no matter place and the most effective participant on the 49ers — even higher than Samuel and Wiliams.
And whereas it is comprehensible Bosa did not make first-team All Pro (solely two edge rushers made it, and each had extra sacks than Bosa), should not he have been second-team All Pro as an alternative of Las Vegas Raiders defensive finish Maxx Crosby, who had eight sacks? Bosa practically doubled his complete.
“I undoubtedly suppose Bosa needs to be there,” head coach Kyle Shanahan stated Friday. “There’s little question about that, I do not suppose individuals recognize how good Bosa is play-in and play-out. I’ve heard individuals discuss him for Comeback Player of the Year and each time they are saying that I can not imagine he hasn’t been talked about in Defensive Player of the Year. So that was a shock to me.”
In addition to Bosa, different 49ers who didn’t make the All Pro workforce have been George Kittle, Fred Warner, Arik Armstead and Jimmie Ward.
