A very unexpected but very humiliating loss on the West Coast.  The game went downhill early and the 49ers notched up 41 straight points on the way to one of the biggest scoreboard losses in franchise history.   "Flat start, flat finish, flat middle,'' Raheem Morris said in summing up the loss.  "We didn't even get off the plane this time. We came out here a little punch-drunk I guess. Didn't play as we normally do.''
