San Francisco 49ers' Most Improved Players

The San Francisco 49ers were the NFC's second best team in 2011 after losing in the NFC Championship game. But even then, it seemed like their playoff run was something like a fluke.

After beating the New England Patriots in Foxboro on Sunday night, there is no question that the 49ers are the NFL's best team.

Or, to put it another way, they are the last team anybody wants to play in January.

San Francisco hasn't relied heavily on free agents or 2012's draft picks for improvement this season. Jim Harbaugh and his staff deserve all the credit for developing the players they already had to make the team better. 

This slide show highlights the players who have improved the most since the 49ers' last playoff run.
