49ers 26, Rams 0: 49ers Records Established, Everybody's Happy

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers had a lot of good things happen in today's game against the St. Louis Rams. It wasn't the prettiest game, but there were some numbers of note - of particular, some records being broken. Most of note is the fact that running back Frank Gore moved into first place in 49ers franchise history in rushing yards, passing Joe Perry for the mark. I honestly can't be more proud of that fact - Gore is a great player and a great person.

On top of that, David Akers broke the franchise record for field goals in a single season, and we've still got plenty of games to play. That's a good thing, but also bad because the 49ers aren't scoring as often as they should be. Still, he's unquestionably been great this season.

Steven Jackson wasn't able to score a touchdown on the 49ers, extending their streak to 12 games, just one shy of the NFL record and the first team to do it in their first 12 games since the 1920 Staleys. They also continued to not allow a 100 yard rusher, as Jackson got just 19 yards on the ground. That's big time stuff, right there.

Other things of note is the fact that Alex Smith's 142.3 QB rating is the highest of his career. Michael Crabtree had the longest reception of the season with a 52 yard touchdown, and then Kyle Williams came back and broke it in the same game, scoring from 56 yards. Aldon Smith had a pair of sacks.

Oh yeah, and the best number - the 49ers are 10-2, suckas! Use this as another postgame thread, but don't you even think about breaking site decorum.
