Quarterback - C
Alex Smith did not get much going in the passing game. He threw for 118 yards, but he avoided the multiple interceptions that plagued Jay Cutler.
Running back - B-plus
Frank Gore ripped off a 14-yard touchdown run to give the 49ers a 7-0 lead. He finished with 104 yards. Michael Robinson picked up two big first downs in fourth quarter.
There were too many false-start penalties out of this group. The 49ers were unable to get much separation. Josh Morgan made a nice play to recover a Gore fumble at the Bears' 6.
Offensive line C-minus
David Baas had a good block on Gore's TD run, but the line play was generally poor in the run and pass games through three quarters. It got a lot better in the fourth.
Defensive line B-plus
Nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin had an interception, and the line was solid against the run. The Bears averaged just 2.0 yards per rushing attempt.
