49ers-Cardinals one-liners

Led by LB Parys Haralson, the 49ers pressured Cardinals QB Kurt Warner throughout their 20-16 victory.

The 49ers running game couldn’t get in gear and they finished with 0.8 yards per carry.

Said 49ers coach Mike Singletary, “I
could care less if it was an ugly game, but it was beautiful for us. I don’t care about all that stuff, the stats and all
that.”

Gwen Knapp of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that the 49ers showed stubborn toughness that came from Singletary in the win. 

49ers QB Shaun Hill set a career-high with a 50-yard completion to WR Isaac Bruce.

Cardinals S Adrian Wilson took the blame for leaving 49ers RB Frank Gore open on his fourth quarter touchdown catch.

The Cardinals were flagged for 12 penalties for 82 yards, something coach Ken Whisenhunt called “unacceptable.”

Cardinals QB Kurt Warner was sacked three times and threw two interceptions.

Tim Hightower had 12 catches for 121 yards to become the first Cardinals running back with 100 yards receiving since Larry Centers in 1996.

Cardinals linebackers Karlos Dansby and Gerald Hayes were keys to the successful effort to stop the 49ers rushing attack.

    Man that Mike Singletary was one hell of a footballer but man oh man I would love to be the beat writer for the 49’ers. This guy comes out with some real good sound bites. I cna see him on the Coors Lite commercials as soon as he gets “canned”.
    PS – yes, “canned” – get it!

    That can’t right…right?
    If that is correct, then they have been worst than I thought.

    Toughness doesn’t win you games over the course of a season.
    – 49ers still try to run Gore against 9 men in the box. Dumb “tough” attitude that gets you .8 yards a carry, and lots of punts.
    – Passing game for SF is still sorely lacking.
    – Defense played well.
    Scheme and talent wins you games. Teams like the Patriots, Steelers, and Eagles win season after season because of their scheme and talent advantage, not because of some nebulous toughness factor.
    The Cardinals played a horrible, lifeless, typical post-losing Super Bowl team hangover game, and were still in position to steal the victory in the final minute.
    Overall, as neither a fan or a hater of the niners, I see them going 6-10, 7-9 at best.
    Schemes > toughness

    The timeout Singletary called when Cardinals seized momentum in the 4th qtr was huge.
    He called his players around him and fired them up at just the right time.
    From that moment on, the momentum shifted again, in favor of the Niners.
    Brilliant move.
