I've got a ton of notes from this game, and while many in the comments are bemoaning the final score, most of the notes are good. Obviously, the person who is most certainly going to 'hear it' in the film room tomorrow is Curtis Painter. He was awful. Three INTs and a fumble led to 34 unanswered points by the 49ers. This picture above says a thousand words about Painter's afternoon.

The silver-lining though is this is preseason. The game doesn't count. So, relax. Chat amongst yourselves while I try and make sense of all my notes.
