Check out the 49er “Grab” Image from Robert Beck

It’s safe to say that we are more than a little excited (make it ecstatic!) to share an incredible football image with you today.

It’s courtesy of our Loweprofessional friend, Sports Illustrated staff photographer and all-around great guy Robert Beck.

Robert covered the playoff game between the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints last Saturday, January 14.

He captured this stunning shot of the 49er Vernon Davis making the game-winning “grab” at the goal line during the last nine seconds. And he landed the cover of the January 23 issue of the magazine.

This Sunday, January 22 (3:30 pm PST) is the NFC Championship game and Robert will be on the sidelines in Candlestick Park again.

He even told us to share this with you: “I’ll be there waving to any Lowepro-wearing fans.” That’s a cool promise.

Check out Robert’s cover shot in Sports Illustrated and see more of his thrilling, jaw-dropping and intimate sports images on his web site.

Thank you for being so generous, Robert. And Go Niners (with respect to all New York Giants fans that are Lowepro fans, too.)!

  • Marcus says:

    It’s probably because I am not American so the game is less well understood, but what on earth is so special about a shot of two player’s backsides?!

    • Because that is all the Saints’ deep backs saw as Vernon Davis was about to catch what proved to be the game-winning touchdown (see football) with nine seconds left in the fourth quarter of the 49ers 36-32 win over the Saints at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.
