The offense looks tepid, but on the bright spot, teams the 49ers have outscored through three quarters this week: Cleveland, Atlanta, Kansas City, Jacksonville, Tampa Bay and the NFC Championship representatives New Orleans and Chicago.
So I hesitate to type this, because I don't want Wisenhunt to realize it, but two quarterbacks that the 49ers could never beat, no matter how bad or good their teams are: Brett Favre and Cardinals backup Kurt Warner (shh).
A third down Blitz, I saw it coming, how couldn't the Niners' coaching staff?
After this game, I doubt will be seeing many 49ers or Cardinals games scheduled in primetime, in fact, I think I heard all the major stations are trying to work out a deal to see if the Cowboys could just play every televised night game for the next three years.
Again the referees help out the Cardinals with a crappy personal foul call on an incidental face mask.
Thanks to the referee and a stupid penalty on Mark Roman for taunting (after a 20 yard run by Leinart) the Cardinals take the lead 17-13. Can't really blame the defense, they've been playing great but have been on the field way too much. Now its up to our offense. Crap.
Mr. Woodcock trailer, wow two penis jokes in the title. That's got to be worth something, huh? No. It actually reminds me of a slapstick version of that episode of Freaks and Geeks where Haverchuck's mom dates his P.E. coach.
I know they didn't have Gore for the pre-season but the offense looks awful...no holes for Gore, no time for Smith to throw, when he does he's missing open receivers, this does not bode well for the season if they can't fix this. Sorry I know its getting repetitive, but after seeing the vast improvement of the defense, it becomes that much more apparent.
Is Joe Montana around somewhere? Let's get him dressed for a last minute comback.
Stop saying "San Fran", Gollic, what does not saying "cisco" truly save you, .04 of a second?
Darrell Jackson misses a possible game winning reception.
Nice 4th and 1 pickup by Smith, I would like to see him run a little more, especially if the coverage is good, may cause the safety to play up and open up the receivers.
A questionable false start penalty against the Niners (appears the Cardinals jumped off) makes it the fifth questionable penalty to go against them, home field advantage ain't what it used to be.
Wow, how did this all of the sudden become an exciting game?
Jackson redeems himself with that fumble pick-up.
The Niners take the lead, Walsh lives! Walsh lives!
And the second interception, game over, man. Somehow the Niners win.
