Michael Huff missed two tackles against San Francisco, one on tight end Vernon Davis that allowed the 49ers to gain a first down, and the second on Delanie Walker's 19-yard touchdown catch from Alex Smith, a play in which Huff ran stride for stride with San Francisco's tight end but failed to look for the ball.
"I try to be patient," Huff said. "We've got a long way to go. You've got to be patient and it will come."
Huff wasn't the only one Kiffin was unhappy about.
Asked what he saw on film after wide receiver Alvis Whitted dropped a sure touchdown in the final seconds of the game, Kiffin replied curtly, "I saw a ball hit him in the hands and drop it."
Oakland did manage to get out of the game relatively injury free. Safety Hiram Eugene injured his hand in the second half and will see a specialist.
