This, with an excellent performance from RB Carlos Hyde, might be enough to steal a win against a Cardinals team missing its starting quarterback. Although they narrowly missed the Super Bowl in 2015, there was a hope among fans that the following season would be even better – that a franchise once synonymous with losing was finally about to bring a championship to the Valley. Chip Kelly knew that rebuilding the 49ers would be a process when he took the head coaching job this past offseason. “Hopefully we’ll have him back next week”. “Now it’s like, ‘these guys are pretenders.’ That’s kind of the persona we had in years previously, that we had to prove something”.
Arians was sacked up for that game because the 10-3 Cardinals were a 4.5 point underdog at 6-7 St. Louis, as they were playing without Carson Palmer, and the Rams were coming off two straight shutouts. Defensively, San Francisco is allowing 26.8 points and 390 yards per game.
The Los Angeles Rams are off to a 3-1 start, after winning the last three games. They are on that same pace this year now holding the seventh-best rushing attack while averaging 123.3 yards per game on 4.6 yards per carry and four touchdowns.
Arians said Palmer was getting better and argued a bit for the chance to play, but it was a no go. Game changing plays from a game changing player, time to get back to your savage self, your boys desperately need you.
“I think Arizona’s gettable”, Dilfer said emphatically. He sees something on the field.
The truth is Stanton did play a good chunk of 2014 with these receivers. The Colts rank 24th in pass defense.
“‘Next Man Up’ has always been our mantra, and it’s never failed us”, Arians said. He’s extremely knowledgeable in the offense.
It’s no surprise that the 49ers are tied for last place in the NFC West. The Cardinals scored the first time they touched the ball six times last season, and held a first-quarter lead 10 times. The 2016 season is a few losses away from turning into a tailspin. But they have simply been playing poor football, including a 17-13 loss at home in week four to the Los Angeles Rams. “Oftentimes, Coach Arians is complimenting his players from the same perspective, so we just wanted to let them know that this is a great win for us, so we’ll see them after Christmas”. It was the longest TD reception for a Rams player since Tavon Austin’s 66-yard score in Game 7 of last season against San Francisco. He finished his career at MU with 12,013 passing yards, most in the school’s history. National Football League teams are allowed to bring one player off injured reserve to the active roster, but that player must spend six weeks on IR before returning to the roster and can play two weeks after that.
“I can’t overemphasize what it’s like to lose Bo”, Bethea said.
“I’d be lying if I told you I haven’t been really surprised by the San Francisco 49ers”, CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Gonzalez said.
