San Francisco 49ers
Handing out labels after Skins games. Today, a 19-11 stinker to San Fran.
Jim Haslett — Considering the offense gave them zero relief with time of possession, field position or, you know, points, the D was pretty impressive.
Graham Gano — Nailed a franchise-record 59-yard FG at the half. Also toe-tapped a beautiful onside kick at the end, regardless of the outcome.
Adam Kerrigan — Absolutely killed Alex Smith on an early sack.
Brian Orakpo – Picked up a sack as well.
Leonard Hankerson — Caught four passes for 34 yards in his first career start. Also, a two-point conversion.

His antic caught the attention of referees and they called a personal foul on Williams for hitting Smith in the back. The play forced the Redskins into a third-and-15 that...
1-This was another awful loss for the skins, one where every facet of the team failed, including discipline, and they got smacked down by a quality team(albeit one with flaws). Coaches get fired for losses like this, and this is the 4th one in a row for the skins-only they didn’t have the Trent Williams injury to blame for this one(actually, it might have been better if he was...
