Daisy Does The Niners: 49ers Lose To Cardinals In Overtime, Remain Winless

As the 49ers prepared to face the Arizona Cardinals, the entire team lined up in two rows, with the front row kneeling, as the national anthem sounded over the loudspeakers at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Phoenix. However, Hyde is still listed as questionable against the Cardinals. "I would love to get it every time, but they got the job done there on the last drive". Bitter losses will surely make future victories taste especially sweet but for now team still has a long way to go.

Palmer began the drive with a pair of 11-yard completions to Andre Ellington, quickly moving the ball to the Arizona 47 with 1:54 to go in the extra session. Coming into this game the defense had totaled three sacks on the season but were able to break out for six sacks in this game. Tank Carradine has been placed on the IR, thrusting Thomas into the starting lineup against a Cardinals offensive line struggling to find an identity. If the offensive line can somehow provide just enough time for him to locate open targets, the offense should be okay, but that has been a big if in the early going. And now fellow guard Alex Boone, who had replaced Iupati has sustained a pectoral injury and is out for probably two weeks. Quarterback Brian Hoyer also had his weekly interception and, for as good as the defense was, it also missed some big opportunities for timely takeaways. Nelson and John Brown, who hopes to be in the lineup this week after missing the past two games with a quadriceps issue. Solomon Thomas, DeForest Buckner and Elvis Dumervil were among the 49ers who had their first sacks of the season and helped keep Arizona out of the end zone until the final play.

Smoke (y) Detector... It sure was nice to see "ole #12 back out there making plays for the Cards". There's always the other side. They finished with 13 penalties for 113 yards, including one that wiped out a touchdown pass. Brown has showed he is more than capable of being that weapon when healthy. They had a crappy game last week, but in general, I'm pretty excited about what I'm seeing.

"If you look at a group of kids playing in a playground, they don't see color".

He had been 10-of-18 for 143 yards and one touchdown, numbers slightly skewed by a 64-yard Juhnny Holton touchdown toss. Another frustration? Oakland was just 2-of-12 on third downs, meaning they're 2-for-23 in their last two games.

It wasn't Fitzgerald but John Brown in his return that looked like the initial hero, making an fantastic grab of a 25-yard toe-tapping touchdown that was initially ruled out. Many Steelers, including head coach Mike Tomlin and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, were shown with their hand over their hearts.

"You'd have to ask New York", Arians said. "My record is like.500 against them, though", he said. I feel like we've gotten better in each game. "And for a guy that's never played this game or understand what goes into it, the brotherhood that we build with blood, sweat and tears, I just felt like he has no say, no type of control in this league because he doesn't have any idea or any clue what we go through". If San Francisco wants any chance at winning this game they must focus on stopping Fitzgerald, and after seeing what they are working with at the CB position, this doesn't seem likely. It was a familiar story for the 49ers, who have lost their last three games by a combined eight points having also run the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams extremely close. The 49ers were forced to settle for Robbie Gould's fifth field goal of the day. Last November, Trump tweeted that "nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag - if they do, there must be consequences - perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!"

Is it time to place Arizona HC Bruce Arians on the hot seat? Knowing this, are the Cardinals inspired?
