I think everyone saw the 49ers 20-12 beat the Cardinals, right?
In the kick-off, he lost the 5-9 Nainers, the last three consecutive losses, and six of the previous seven games. They were on a month-long camping trip to Arizona. The team bus is an ambulance. They were not invited to the playoffs last week. They were basically playing for exercise.
Opposed to them was the 8-6 Cardinals, formerly known as the NFL’s Next Big Thing, but is now considered the middle of the pack. Still, they were definitely involved in the playoff hunting and had an electrical talent at QB Kyler Murray. This was a clear and winning game, so it was expected to be very motivating. Also, they had already beat SF 24-20 in the first game of the season.
And the flounder won.
Not only that, but despite the close scores, the Bay Area side clearly looked like a good team. It was definitely a moment of waiting. There you need to question your preconceptions. Much of what happened came out of nowhere. For example:
Kyle Shanahan was previously considered so light that he resisted putting him in the last two games, even though Nick Morens was basically igniting himself, CJ Beathard Started 3 touchdown passes and threw without interception. Of course he did.
Jeff Wilson, an undrafted, unpredictable running back who attended a college in North Texas (school, not place), ran the ball 22 times. At the 49ers in 2019, he ran a total of 105 yards throughout the regular season. In this game he hurried 183.
“I felt like every run was gouache,” Beathard said after the match.
Wilson also caught the touchdown pass. Tell us that he was on your fantasy team.
Ahkello Witherspoon, a crazy and inconsistent cornerback that was voted most likely to be described as Shanahan’s “kennel,” made a game-saving interception in the end zone. .. And everywhere in the Bay Area, loyal people turned to their neighbors and said: .. .. “
That was something you didn’t expect. Second, the relentlessly efficient Robbie Gold would say he missed three kicks. (He did, and one was an extra point.)
But let’s focus on the positive. Why did that happen?
First of all, I don’t know. The team stands up unexpectedly and wins games like this. It happens every year. But there are always some factors that make it possible.
First, defense has become proud of itself as the strength of the team. Linebacker Fred Warner verifies his efforts to make his first Pro Bowl. Warner should also send a thank-you card to analyst Tony Romo. Back in October, Lomo called him the best middle linebacker in the game. Others have noticed.
In addition, the Robert Surrey Show continues to win acclaim. Saleh is a hot sideline shot on television in every match and he is required to be the first choice for a head coach job. Watching his defense play and jump into the air at the sidelines increases strength and stock.
Commentator Matt Maiocco called the match on Saturday a “three-hour job interview.”
It looks like it was years ago, but it’s also true that this is the team that was in the Super Bowl less than a year ago. The core of the roster played in important games and playoffs during the season. It’s an experience that sticks to you. Sure, the team didn’t win, but there are still players and coaches who know how to do it.
And let’s say that, the George Kittle effect is real. He appeared in a post-match interview wearing a flashy “Joker” T-shirt and asked questions like a veteran improvisational performer. I can’t help laughing.
“Practicing the kittle is not enough,” said Shanahan. “I feel different”
Limited to 28 snaps, he made the most of them. In his first play from Scrimmage, he pulled out the defender’s foot in a low block with a face planted. He also caught four passes at 92 yards and flashed the runaway cement truck’s driving style. Again, you can’t help laughing.
As for Bethard, Shanahan has to start him against Seattle, right? Once upon a time, I was thinking of claiming that if Jimmy Garoppolo was healthy, the final start might be worth it. If he played well, it might silence some of his critics, and if he wasn’t. .. .. Well, maybe we need to take a look again.
But we can’t stop talking like this. Almost a year after his brother Clay died in a stab outside the bar and played pretty well, Beathard arrived. He threw 22 passes and was less than 200 yards, but there was no pass cut. He took off even on a few runs.
“I can’t imagine what CJ and his family experienced,” Kittle said. “But if he had a chance, I knew he would play with inspiration.”
CJ is worth starting again.
On the other side, on the other hand, it’s a good idea to dial down the Arizona QB Murray hype. We are once again asking about how hot new mobile quarterbacks are. And yes, Murray escaped from Pass Rush many times and won his first down.
However, the 49ers seemed to be planning in the game what other teams started with Colin Kaepernick. They tried to keep Murray from being a bystander. They put him back in the middle of the sampler. Murray was just over 70 yards, but relatively contained.
Also, for all highlight runs, quarterbacks need to make smart throws at the right time. Murray’s passcut in the last five minutes was only eight, but it was unforgivable.
First, he was in the Red Zone at 14 of the 49ers. It was also down second, so throwing the ball away was definitely Plan B if nothing was open. It was closely covered by the Witherspoon. There was no chance in the balloon of the pass. Witherspoon collected it and the game was essentially over. It was as poor a throw as you are likely to see professional makeup.
As a reminder, 49er fans, and sometimes even hot and young quarterbacks, have some work to do. For those who want to replace Jimmy G. with a flashy QB running 4.340. Pay attention to what you want.
