NaVorro Bowman almost left Super Bowl 47 press conference due to circumstances similar to Cam Newton

It's unfortunate when the biggest game of the season gets overshadowed by something that happens in a post game press conference. Cam Newton was clearly frustrated upon the conclusion of the game and that carried over into the media availability, so much so, that he walked off of the podium after just a few minutes of questions. It was discussed at length by analysts after the game and it has sparked a huge social media debate. Newton always wears his heart on his sleeve and this was no exception. The set up for the post game availability, however needs to be reworked. Several members of...

NFL Comeback player of the year vote: Adrian Peterson got 4 votes, NaVorro Bowman got 1

Site decorum is off on this one, and I am not remotely pleased with the situation. The Associated Press awarded the Comeback Player of the Year, and Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry won. That is perfectly reasonable, and I don't think anybody can say he does not deserve it. However, one aspect of the voting goes beyond ludicrous and pisses me off. San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman got one vote for the award, while Adrian Peterson took home four votes. Here's the full breakdown. NaVorro Bowman got one vote for comeback player of the year. Eric Berry won w/ 38, Carson Palmer...

Eric Berry wins Comeback Player of the Year over NaVorro Bowman, Carson Palmer

The Associated Press handed out the 2015 Comeback Player of the Year Award at Saturday's NFL Honors program, and it should surprise nobody that Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry took home the award. Berry faced competition from San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman and Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer. Berry was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in December 2014. He was immediately placed on the NFI list and saw his season ended. He immediately began chemotherapy, and continued working out through the process. He came out of that ready for the 2015 season, and put...

NFL Honors 2016 live stream: Time, TV schedule, awards and how to watch online

The 2016 NFL Honors program airs tonight at 6 p.m. PT on CBS, and counts as sort of the penultimate event of the 2015 NFL season. Super Bowl 50 wraps it up, but the NFL Honors program will be where the NFL hands out its many end-of-season awards. These include the various AP awards (MVP, Coach of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year, etc). The San Francisco 49ers have a couple players of note that could claim some hardware. NaVorro Bowman is among the potential winners, along with Eric Berry, Carson Palmer, and even Adrian Peterson, unfortunately. Berry is a heavy favorite given his...

Panthers LB duo admired what 49ers had in Bowman, Willis

While Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman flourished as a linebacker tandem in the 49ers 2011-13 playoff seasons, the Carolina Panthers had their own dynamic duo in Thomas Davis and Luke Kuechly.

What do you think was the best 49ers play of the year?

Was it a Carlos Hyde run, a Torrey Smith touchdown or a NaVorro Bowman tackle? Let us know. Nobody can confuse what happened in 2015-16 as an overall positive for the San Francisco 49ers. The franchise regressed as a whole in so many different ways and trying to find as silver lining is a pointless endeavor. That isn't to say that the on-field action was totally devoid of high points, however. Running back Carlos Hyde had some pretty great runs early on in the season before he suffered a foot injury, while Rugby League convert Jarryd Hayne captured out imagination with a couple clutch plays...

Joe Staley "tackles" NaVorro Bowman after interception, negated by Richard Sherman penalty

The San Francisco 49ers have two representatives in the 2016 Pro Bowl, and they ended up involved in an unexpected play. Team Rice quarterback Derek Carr fired off a pass late in the first quarter. Richard Sherman forced a deflection that NaVorro Bowman intercepted. Bowman jumped for it and went to the ground with the ball. A couple players touched him in the air, and then Joe Staley touched Bowman as he hit the ground. Fittingly enough, the whole play came back due to Richard Sherman committing a pass interference penalty. I mean could it have been more on point given the 49ers-Seahawks...

Pro Bowl 2016: Game time, TV schedule, live online stream for NFL's All-Star Game

The 2016 Pro Bowl kicks off Sunday afternoon. It is the penultimate NFL game, if you want to call it NFL action. We've got the TV details to get you ready for NaVorro Bowman and Joe Staley's final game of the season. It's Pro Bowl day! Try not to get too excited. NaVorro Bowman and Team Irvin square off against Joe Staley and Team Rice at 4 p.m. PT on ESPN. Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden will be calling the game. I am curious to see how much Gruden can pump this game up. You can watch the game via live online stream on WatchESPN. Joe Staley and NaVorro Bowman are really the two big reasons for...

NaVorro Bowman comments on defense with Chip Kelly offensive philosophy

The 49ers defensive leader is not overly concerned about the impact of Chip Kelly's offensive philosophy on the defense. Since Chip Kelly was first hired, we've had plenty of discussion about the implications his offensive philosophy has on the defense. The pace of the offense usually means the defense is going to get more series than it might otherwise get. Oscar Aparicio broke down efficiency metrics that indicated the offense did not impact the defense. There will be differing opinions on this topic, but that's one breakdown of the issue. NaVorro Bowman is in Hawaii this week for the...

2016 Pro Bowl rosters are set: 49ers have NaVorro Bowman on Team Irvin, Joe Staley on Team Rice

The San Francisco 49ers have two Pro Bowlers this year. As they get ready for the Chip Kelly era, who might make the team next year? It's hard to get overly excited about the Pro Bowl, but the San Francisco 49ers will have two players participating this Sunday. The game is good for Sunday background noise, but I'll also try and pay some attention to NaVorro Bowman and Joe Staley. I would think there will be at least one moment when they interact on the field given that they are on opposing teams. As we look ahead to the 2016 season, who do you see as potential Pro Bowlers next year? There...

2016 Pro Bowl rosters: Joe Staley, Navorro Bowman will face off on opposing teams

The 2016 Pro Bowl takes place this Sunday, and it will feature two members of the San Francisco 49ers facing off against each other. Joe Staley and NaVorro Bowman were both selected for the game, and in the Wednesday player draft, they were selected by the opposing teams. The Pro Bowl was changed recently to a situation where people vote on positions, and then team captains select players in a playground-style format. It means teammates often will face off in some form or fashion. This year, Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin are the opposing retired captains. Team Rice selected left tackle Joe...

2016 Pro Bowl draft: Time, TV schedule, live stream and rules

The 2016 Pro Bowl takes place this Sunday, and the San Francisco 49ers will have two players involved in the game. NaVorro Bowman and Joe Staley were both voted onto the Pro Bowl, and neither has backed out at this point. That means they will take part in the now annual Pro Bowl roster draft, which takes place Wednesday evening at 4:30 p.m. PT on ESPN2. The two teams are captained by Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice. They will be assisted by team captains Geno Atkins, Odell Beckham Jr., Aaron Donald and Devonta Freeman. They will alternate picks, and that could result in Bowman and Staley...

NaVorro Bowman, Torrey Smith with The Rock on the set of Ballers

HBO's TV series Ballers is currently shooting its second season, and it appears we might see a couple members of the San Francisco 49ers on the show.

49ers star debrief: NaVorro Bowman turns in incredible All-Pro performance after big injury

The 49ers were bad in 2015. They would have been so much worse if not for NaVorro Bowman. When San Francisco 49ers inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman first went down with what was obviously going to be a very serious, debilitating injury, I didn't care about the playoffs anymore. I didn't care that the 49ers were about to lose a huge game against the Seattle Seahawks. Bowman was the future of the team, a player who looked every bit the future Hall of Famer that Patrick Willis looked. The 49ers needed Bowman. But Bowman sustained a torn ACL, and multiple other ligaments along with that one. It...
