When discussing the two quarterbacks who will be on the field Sunday at Candlestick Park, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh described Eli Manning of the New York Giants and Alex Smith in much the same way.
Coach Jim Harbaugh said he believes Frank Gore, who showed some signs of a left ankle sprain, will be able to practice in Wednesday afternoon.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin says the Alex Smith of this season is different than the guy he has seen in previous seasons. "He's got a 97 quarterback rating, which is darn good."
The 49ers defense allowed a 59-yard field goal and a last minute touchdown to the Redskins. Patrick Willis had his best game of 2011 with 13 tackles and two forced fumbles. How did the rest of the defense look?
