Andy Lee named NFC special teams player of week

In a week lacking the big return performances, the special teamer who helped prevent them was honored.

By placing three of his six punts inside the 20, including a 58-yarder, 49ers punter Andy Lee was named NFC special teams player of the week.

Lee leads the NFC in gross punting average (48.3) and is fourth in net (42.4).

That’s huge for the 49ers, who are relying on defense and special teams to keep things together since their offense hasn’t run as smoothly as they’d have hoped.

    I know it’s easy to downplay the Niners offense because they’re not putting up big fancy stats, but… the TEAM has scored over 30 points in each of their last four games.

    The 49ers must be something right?

    They play the offense most people aren’t accustomed to now a days. Its a timeless classic. Smashmouth football, get the lead, control the clock and get the win. And mix in the read option when your not expecting it. When Manningham and Crabtree come back its game over!

    When Manningham and Crabtree get back they still won’t be able to score more than 13 against the Seahawks.

    Trolling an article about an opponents punter. Now that is funny. You must have some free time.

    In a week lacking a big return? I’m pretty sure Devin Hester just tied the NFL record for most returns for touchdowns last Sunday.
