Had the San Francisco 49ers lost Monday night to the Atlanta Falcons, there would have been more controversy concerning a questionable penalty on a 49ers' defender.Early in the game, hard-hitting San Francisco safety Donte Whitner made what appeared to be a legal hit on third down while Atlanta was in the red zone. However, he was called for a penalty. It extended the drive and the Falcons took a 7-3 lead.Tuesday, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh declined to discuss the play.
