Post Game Grades per Grant Cohn

The article is spot on. Still, this is all Grant's fault. Are you reading this Grant!!!?? Ever since you predicted we would blow out Baltimore on Thanksgiving everything has gone down the s**tter!

Smith is great when he has a devastating defense and devastating ST and outstanding oline blocking and perfect coaching and receivers that never drop the ball. He is not clutch in the absence of any of those though. Our O is not playoff worthy. Today's game was very sobering to watch.

How has he had multiple comeback wins this year then...the OL is never outstanding and the WR's never catch everything.
I won't argue with that F. It seemed like they were trying to play to our weaknesses throughout the game. Their pigheadedness about throwing the ball was like some sort of reverse Singletary twigh light zone.

I don't care what anybody says, Harbaugh doesn't trust Smith. Field goals aren't going to cut it in the playoffs. He is relying too much on the defense. They can only do so much.

Ahh.. so coaching = F, but QB play = F-. Got it!

Quarterback: C-. Alex Smith muffed what should have been the signature play of his career. On fourth down – the last play of the game – he rolled right, searching for a receiver. He looked like Joe Montana before he made the throw that led to the "The Catch," except he didn't throw it. He spun to his left to buy more time, and then he spun to his right once more. At this point he was 25 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Then he sprinted toward the line of scrimmage, pointed at Kendall Hunter, stopped running, set his feet and overthrew a simple 20-yard pass to Hunter, who was crossing the field towards the right sideline. Hunter had to dive just to get his fingertips on the ball. Smith has to make that throw – has to. He didn't, and the Niners lost. Here are his stats: 18 for 37, 175 yards, 62.3 rating. His completion percentage wouldn't have been as low as it was (49%) if his receivers hadn't dropped so many passes, but he still didn't play well enough to win.
Yeah we threw the ball 37 times. Thats what happens when you take the ball out of the hands of our best player on offense and has carried that unit to victory.
Coaching - F
QB - D
O-line - F
WR - F

We're not going any where if this continues.

Wide receivers: C-. Michael Crabtree played well against Patrick Peterson, a tough matchup, catching seven passes for 63 yards. He also made the key block downfield on Gore's touchdown run. Kyle Williams played well the few times he got the ball. Braylon Edwards was slow to get out of his breaks all afternoon, and he missed both passes thrown his way. Ginn Jr. egregiously missed a touchdown pass, never even seeing the ball in the air. Kyle Williams needs to start and get more targets, period. Ginn Jr. should be used on the fly sweep and Edwards should not play.

Tight ends: F+. Delanie Walker had an atrocious game – losing six yards by trying to reverse field on a bubble screen, and then dropping a pass when he was wide open. Vernon Davis made a great run after the catch on a 32 yard play, but that was only one of three targets he got on the day. That's not enough. On the last drive, he got flagged for a terrible false start on second and five. Harbaugh whipped his face in disgust after that one.

Good, then we agree they ALL suck, not just ALex's supporting cast.

That is funny because the Montana throw was not very good Dwight Clark made a great catch. Hunter let it go threw his hands not fingers.

Dude, Dwight Clark was a tall possession receiver, Kendall Hunter is a 5'7" RB. GTFO of here!!!!!

Edwards and Ginn have sucked.

This is true of any QB not just Alex, if your supporting cast doesn't do anything, there is nothing you can do.

There IS something he can do, but he didn't do it. Give me a break, Crabs is above average, Ginn has made plays. SO what, he missed that ball that was 7 yards left of him? Alex overthrew him twice last game, give the guy a break!
I agree
