Thoughts, halftime, Lions, 49ers

- Costly miss by Jason Hanson on the FG attempt. Six-point swing because of the field position it gave the 49ers and David Akers drilled the 55-yarder.

- The 49ers have some big time defensive players and they've already made some big time plays. Patrick Willis with a batted down pass in the end zone, Aldon Smith with the safety and Justin Smith has been a force inside. Very good players. A solid defense.

- Most of the talk when the Lions drafted Titus Young in the second round was about his speed, but he has excellent hands. Some of the receptions he has made have been difficult ones, including one in the second quarter.

- Every game isn't going to smoothly for the Lions. This one sure isn't. Can they outlast the 49ers, who have displayed similar competitive character this season.
