Cardinals tie 49ers, defenses still dominating

Larry Fitzgerald AP

After the game started with seven punts and a bunch of bad passes, the 49ers and Cardinals traded touchdowns late in the second quarter.

It’s 7-7 at halftime after Larry Fitzgerald caught a touchdown pass from Drew Stanton and the Cardinals got two defensive stops to end the half.

The 49ers drove 87 yards in 10 plays to score first, getting a 9-yard touchdown pass from Blaine Gabbert to Jeremy Kerley with 4:12 left in the half.

The Cardinals punted on the ensuing possession, but Calais Campbell intercepted a Gabbert screen pass and Stanton found a wide-open Fitzgerald for a 21-yard touchdown on the next play.

The defenses are still dominating. The Cardinals got the ball back with good field position and a little more than a minute left but couldn’t get close to field goal range. The 49ers got the ball back with 39 seconds left but threw one incompletion, then ran the clock out.

    Not sure if I want to keep seeing the Blain Witch Project at QB or ready to move on and give Rev. Jesse Jackson a chance.

    The NFL need look no further than this game to see why the ratings are down.

    Neither team looks like they want to play.

    But Niners really look like they already quit on Chipster.

    Couldn’t happen to a more deserving fan base.

    There are probably more people in the stands than are watching this game on TV, and that isn’t saying much.

    San Francisco is worse the Cleveland. Good god.

    Look at how many people are in the stands. Are you kidding me? Seriously, I never want to heat a niner fan talk about being “faithful” again. That’s pathetic.

    I live in California (SD) and I can tell you the rest of the country that the economy in California is collapsing as we speak. The economy started dropping earlier this year and now even in the rich Bay Area people are starting to move out.

    Every year, 100,000 people are leaving Los Angeles. Look it up in the US Census. 100k every single year–from one metro.

    The poor attendance is in part because the California economy is plummeting. Word of warning.

    Odd how the narrative is always “dominating defense” when the reality is that the offense just stinks.

    It’s not dominating defense when the QB is missing throws by 7 yards while standing in a clean pocket.

    Call it what it is – BAD football teams. It’s possible to have a low scoring game without “dominating defense” if your QB choices are what we see in this game.

    Yikes what a game to watch. I laughed when Phil Simms at halftime said it was an exciting game. What the hell was he watching?
