The San Francisco 49ers have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. They are in playoff contention with hopes of returning to the Super Bowl for a second consecutive year, and star wide receiver Michael Crabtree is on the mend. More importantly, they have jobs in an ultra-competitive professional sport, financial stability, a locker room full of allies, and family at home.

As coach Jim Harbaugh often asks loudly, “Who’s got it better than us?”

With Thanksgiving upon us, we asked the 49ers to take a step back from the day-to-day grind and share what they are thankful for this year.

Now that you know what the 49ers are thankful for, tweet us @CSNAuthentic with what makes you thankful. Don’t forget to use the proper hashtag: #WhyImThankful.
