49ers running back Frank Gore had 82 yards on 16 carries fora 5+ YPC. Makes you wonder why San Francisco didn’t turn to Gore more. However, for dynasty purposes, Gore is already 30 and has one year left on his contract. You’d be wise to trade him off for an asset now.
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick threw for 91 yards on 50% passing, exposing what happens when San Francisco had zero weapons to work with after Vernon Davis’ concussion. Kap is a definite buy-low candidate until the 49ers addresses its receivers issue.
Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly led the Panthers with one of their six sacks and had 11 tackles and one pass defended.
Not to be outdone, 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks had three sacks on the day to bring his total to 6.5. At 29 and signing an extension before 2012, Brooks will be in the same situation that has brought him continued success so he could be a name to fill your LB2/3 position.
