49ers report card for 26-3 loss to Giants:

<b>Quarterbacks: D</b> Whether it was due to a sore middle finger or a series of bad reads, Alex Smith threw 3 interceptions.

<b>Running Backs: B</b> Frank Gore had 8 attempts for 36 yards at halftime — and didn't get another carry.

<b>Receivers: C</b> Decent games for Mario Manningham (5 catches, 72 yards) and Randy Moss (2 for 75).

<b>Offensive Line: D </b>A week after dominating the Bills, this unit was entirely overmatched by the Giants' active front four.
