We should be more specific, more like abused Donte Whitner
On the critically-acclaimed "Donte Whitner" drive, Donte ate some fail-bread, put on his helmet, and went out to lay an egg. From the 3rd down play where he whiffed on a potential drive-killing tackle, to the end-zone defense, where he pulled a matador and gave up an easy TD. He easily was responsible for 3-7 points on that drive, considering the plays he could have made.
Yes, our offensive line got trashed. It was horrible watching our players get manhandled, but it's actually a credit to Alex Smith to see that we didn't fold completely in the onslaught. If you want to take a positive from it, know that our team is resilient, and that we can win no matter how ugly it looks at times. That's how we beat Philadelphia, despite Vick's numbers and the half-time score.
If we lose to the Steelers, which won't happen seeing that Harb's brother beat them twice, Big Ben's finger is broken, and Troy is one concussion away from missing a lot of time, then I'll gladly admit that we have issues, and we'll probably pull a 13-3 Falcons and be one and done in the divisional game.
