Tramaine Brock picks off NFC defensive honors

Tramaine Brock is slowing winning back his old job, and awards to go with it.

The 49ers cornerback was named NFC defensive player of the week after his two interceptions in Sunday’s win over the Texans, one of which was returned for a touchdown.

The fourth-year cornerback reclaimed the third corner job when veteran Nnamdi Asomugha came up with a sore knee last week, and played to the level that will make it hard for anyone to imagine him giving it up anytime soon.

Like Asomugha, he’s in a contract year, but is still ascending as a player, which will interest the 49ers and many others.

    I would like thank Nnamdi Asomugha for his his participation with 2013 San Francisco 49ers.

    Not taking anything away from Brock as he played excellently.

    But they should rename the DPOTW award to the “Guy who got to face Matt Schaub award”. Last week Sherman this week Brock.

    I wonder if he can complete a pass because Kaep obviously cannot.

    Congrats Brock!

    I gave Nnamdi the benefit of the doubt, but he obviously has lost a step. I’m glad we are getting the position solidified as the team continues to right the ship.

    Next up, wide outs.

    GO NINERS!!!!!

    I’m sure the team will give Asomugha plenty of time to heal his “sore knee.” Wouldn’t want to rush him back too early and risk him getting burned like always. The guy should be the 3rd FS not CB…

    Glad Brock is showing signs again.

    Yeah, most likely the rest of the season since he’s a very likely candidate to be released in order to make room for one of the many players about to start coming off the NFI/PUP lists.
