Report card: 49ers vs. Colts

QUARTERBACKS

Wunderkind Colin Kaepernick suddenly looks more confused and less explosive.

D

RUNNING BACKS

Frank Gore averaged 7.5 yards per carry and Kendall Hunter scored a 13-yard TD. So why weren't they used more?

B

RECEIVERS

These guys simply couldn't get open against the Colts' press coverage.

F

OFFENSIVE LINE

Just one penalty and pretty good run blocking. Certainly not the reason San Francisco lost.

C

DEFENSIVE LINE

Niners probably would prefer not to give Glenn Dorsey and Tony Jerod-Eddie so many snaps.

C

LINEBACKERS

Ahmad Brooks harassed Luck frequently and NaVorro Bowman led the team with 9 tackles, but pass rush was spotty.

B

DEFENSIVE BACKS

Too many penalties, too many missed tackles.

D

SPECIAL TEAMS

A busy day for punter Andy Lee, but not an exceptional one. Some fidgety kickoff returns, too.

C

COACHING / OVERALL

Losing at Seattle is one thing. Lying down like this at home is another order of ineptitude.
