    The San Francisco 49ers' 31-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs was painful, but for a certain 49er it was very painful.

    49ers backup running back Anthony Dixon took a dirty hit south of the suspenders Sunday from Chiefs' defensive tackle Shaun Smith. This is unusual because Smith was busted for the exact same thing last week in a game against the Cleveland Browns.

    Bet this guy would enjoy Mike Singletary's "nutcracker" drill!

    "I think he got hit inappropriately," Singletary told Comcast SportsNet. "After a while, there's only so much you can take. He (Davis) was wrong for retaliating and he knows that."

    Davis' retaliation earned a fifteen-yard personal foul call while the 49ers were still only down 10-3. Smith's transgression, though, was unnoticed by officials.

    "He tried to feel me," Davis said, of Smith's dirty maneuver. "That's weird, right?"

    Hey, it was the day of Folsom Street Fair. Pretty much anything goes, Anthony.
