WR Ted Ginn and rookie RB Kendall Hunter have been giving the 49ers excellent starting field position for the offense this year. Ginn has returned 15 kickoffs for 447 yards (29.8 avg) with 1 TD return. He also has returned 22 punts for 291 yards (13.2 avg) with 1 TD return this year. Kendall Hunter has returned 3 kickoffs for 81 yards (27.0 avg) this year, when teams elect to kick the ball away from Ginn. The Niners have now returned 18 kickoffs for 528 yards (29.3 avg) with 1 TD return and 22 punts for 291 yards (13.2 avg) with 1 TD return. The Niners need these guys to keep up the good work.

The 49ers picked both of them in the first round of the 2010...
After four dominant performances in a row, Frank Gore is on the short list for potential MVP candidates just about halfway through the season. But with opposing teams certainly preparing for Gore and a rush-dominated offensive attack, how will that affect his stats for the remaining nine games?

Right around the same time the 49ers got their run game in gear, the Washington Redskins seemed to completely forget how to defend it. This makes Frank Gore an excellent weapon in Week 9.
Ahmad Brooks remembers going to RFK Stadium as a child to cheer for the Washington Redskins, the team his father, Perry Brooks, played for as a defensive tackle from 1978-84.
Brooks would wear his burgundy and gold and watch in admiration as the Redskins of old authored their storied careers.
On Sunday, Brooks, now an outside linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, will face the...
