Cardinals 23, 49ers 20

Phew! That was close. The 49ers almost blew their shot at history on Sunday afternoon, but in the final two minutes of the game, they rallied to let Carson Palmer lead the Cardinals on a 12 play, 62 yard drive

And the Least Shall Be Last

The 49ers and Cardinals meet tonight in a battle for the basement in the NFC West. That the Niners are engaged in this sort of tawdry affair is no surprise, but Arizona has been a surprise disappointment thus far in

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,

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,
