Cardinals 20, 49ers 10

The Cardinals and 49ers met for the second time this season and the results were pretty much the same. A deadly boring contest which Arizona won. 49er fans were apparently expecting this sort of performance, as the stadium was only

It’s a Mad World

So, in with Jimmy Garappolo, out with Kirk Cousins. And, for his 0-6 efforts, Brian Hoyer goes from worst to first. Reminds me of David Baas, the O-line guy who did squat here for five years, then went to the

Cardinals 18, 49ers 15

The 49ers and Cardinals played a seesaw OT yawner in Arizona Sunday, but the end result was the same as the previous week’s seesaw donnybrook. Another loss. The Niners have played three straight games against their division opponents and lost

Back to You, Ed

NFL season: Take Two. Let’s try this again. Where were we? 0-3 and dead last in the NFC West. Next up, at Arizona. This would normally be an automatic 0-4, but the Cardinals seem to have fallen apart about as

Cardinals 19, 49ers 13

The 49ers lost to the Cardinals Sunday in Santa Clara, imploding their record to 3-8 and 0-5 in the NFC West. But, this is the new Niners and we’ve had to trade in our old adjectives, like mighty and powerful,

The Vultures Are Circling

The 49er players have now firmly taken a back seat to the 49er front office in terms of scrutiny and speculation. The rest of the season will be less and less about whether the team wins or loses games, and

Back to Work Week

After an intense week of delusional therapy, the 49ers resume their fall from grace this week by traveling to Seattle to be squashed like a bug before returning home to be thoroughly thrashed by the Arizona Cardinals. At that point,

Big Ass Parade

49er QB Colin Kaepernick laid a huge ass egg last Sunday in Arizona. He’s taken a big ass beating from the press all week because of it. An agonizing event like that can break a guy. Or it can be

Cardinals 47, 49ers 7

As Denny Green would say, more or less: “They are who we thought they were!” For the second straight week, the 49ers endured a complete butt whipping. Last week Pittsburgh did the honors 43-18, and this week Arizona outdid that

Own It, Fix It, Move On

Big game this weekend. As big as it gets in Palookaville, that is. Are the 49ers closer to the marginally decent team we saw against Minnesota? Or nearer the fiasco bunch featured in Pittsburgh? Are they a 3 win team

49ers 20, Cardinals 17

In a meaningless battle between two crippled teams, one that will play again next week and one that won’t, it was the Won’ts that prevailed over the Wills in a close and fairly entertaining game. The Harbaugh Era ends in

Cardinals 23, 49ers 14

For the third consecutive week, the 49ers jumped out to a first half lead, then imploded in the second half. The lead was big enough in the first game to withstand the brown out, but last week and this week,

49ers 23, Cardinals 20

The Arizona Cardinals bragged their way to an 11-5 record during the week and labeled themselves the best team in the NFC, but limped off the field Sunday sporting a 10-6 tag and a ticket home for the offseason as

Scoreboard Watchers Weekend

Last week of the 2013 season. Green Bay at Chicago for the NFC North title. Philadelphia at Dallas for the NFC East title. Saints are win-and-in versus Tampa Bay. Carolina and Seattle could both win their divisions and get the

49ers 32, Cardinals 20

Late in the 3rd quarter, the 49ers were clinging to a 22-20 lead, when Patrick Willis stripped the ball from Larry Fitzgerald at the SF 11, Eric Reid recovered, and this looked like a game the team was going to

Redbird Meets Windshield

The Arizona Cardinals come to town Sunday for their annual Candlestick shellacking. They have not won a game here since September 7, 2008. That was their Kurt Warner led Super Bowl run year. They have been in a freefall since,

Point Blank

The 49ers and their HC Jim Harbaugh have not been winning any popularity polls lately. Darnell Dockett fired the first flames last year by admitting he hated the Niners. But that was when Arizona was considered a contender, not a

Luck Be A Lady

The 49ers repeated as NFC West champs Sunday by whisking aside the crumbling Arizona Cardinals 27-13. Rather than celebrate, the team adjourned to the locker room and did what fans do — anxiously watched the TV end game between Green

Must Win Times

Last year, the 49ers split their first two games and then embarked on an improbable eight game winning streak. This year, the team has been unable to win so much as three games in a row. Beginning Sunday, they’ll have

Landslide Victory

The 49ers crushed the Arizona Cardinals 24-3 on Monday night, sending the team and its fans into the Bye week on a very happy note. As they say in the Life Duhs Anonymous meetings, two weeks of savoring always trumps

Razing Arizona

Three years and one universe ago, Kurt Warner was the Arizona Cardinals’ quarterback, they were the reigning NFC West champions who had been narrowly defeated in the 2008 Super Bowl, Shaun Hill was the 49ers’ QB, Mike Singletary was beginning

Semester Break

The 49ers zoomed into sole possesion of first place in the NFC West Sunday by lounging pool side while watching Arizona get stuffed by Minnesota. Next Monday night, the team will get to stuff Arizona themselves. Meanwhile, Seattle CB Richard
