49ers report card

Quarterbacks

Colin Kaepernick may have been the best player in the first half; he made the biggest mistakes of the second half.

C

Running Backs

With Seattle loaded up to stop Frank Gore and company, the RBs combined for 48 yards from scrimmage.

D

Receivers

Anquan Boldin, uncharacteristically, had a couple of dropped passes.

C

Offensive Line

When your best play is a quarterback scramble, it’s not a big day for the O-line.

D

Defensive Line

The big guys dominated in the first half but got worn down a little by Marshawn Lynch.

B

Linebackers

They combined for 4 sacks, 2 by Aldon Smith, and NaVorro Bowman had 14 tackles before getting hurt.

A

Defensive Backs

Rookie safety Eric Reid was very active. Nobody else stood out that much.

C

Special Teams

The lowlights included a muffed punt and a 69-yard kickoff return by the Seahawks’ Doug Baldwin.

D

Coaching/Overall

The 49ers came into the NFL’s toughest stadium and traded blows, but Seattle’s going to the Super Bowl.
