For this week’s Beasts and *******, we thought about it long and hard and decided no one on the 49ers would be a *****. Despite the offensive struggles and the 15 penalties. The team was down 10 in a hostile environment, and committed 15 penalties and overcame that to win their third road game in a row. All the 49ers are Beasts this week, but we’ll single out those that really stood out. Beasts: Frank Gore – At one point Gore had 120 yards on 6 carries. Finished the day with 140 and a TD. Andy Lee – Lee had 9 punts and 4 of those were inside the 20. He was giving the 49ers great field position. Aldon Smith – 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble, and a safety. He has 5.5 sacks in basically 3 games. Justin Smith – 1.5 sacks, and his motor was running all day. David Akers – Akers was 3/3 on FG and hit a 55 yarder just before half to put the 49ers on top. Tarell Brown/Carlos Rogers/Chris Culliver – These three shutdown the mighty Megatron. Kept him out of the endzone for the first time this season...
