Grades for the 49ers' 32-7 win against the Chicago Bears:

Quarterbacks: A Are you kidding? Colin Kaepernick (133.1 rating) looked like a late-developing RG3.

Running Backs: A It wasn’t a ground-heavy offense, but Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter averaged 4.8 per carry.

Receivers: A Several guys made big plays, none more than TE Vernon Davis, who had 6 catches for 83 yards.

Offensive Line: A Kaepernick had time all night. The running backs had room up the middle.

Defensive Line: A Justin Smith helped Aldon collapse the pocket.

Linebackers: A If it weren’t for Aldon Smith (5½ sacks), we’d all be talking about NaVorro Bowman’s 12 tackles.

Defensive Backs: B Interceptions for Tarell Brown and Dashon Goldson.

Special Teams: B David Akers was back to being automatic, though all from short range.

Coaching/Overall: A The 49ers had the better defense, the better replacement QB and the better game plan.
