San Francisco 49ers: Wild Card Round Power Rankings (#4)

It’s a shame Justin Smith had to get hurt. I was really interested to see just how much of a quarterback league this really is. We know it’s a quarterback league. Of the last 21 Super Bowl winning quarterbacks, 20 made a Pro-Bowl first.

In the annals of the San Francisco 49ers rich history the 2012 season should perhaps become known as the “Trial of the Smiths”. To a certain degree both the offense and the defense have had to redefine themselves due to the absence of one Smith or another.
