Fitzgerald active for Niners game

Posted by Darren Urban on October 13, 2013 – 12:02 pm

After a lot of speculation pre-game about whether Larry Fitzgerald would be able to play on his bad hamstring, Fitzgerald is indeed active today against the 49ers. How much he can do remains to be seen, but it was going to take a lot to have Fitz not play in such an important game. The inactive list thus remains fairly normal:

— QB Ryan Lindley

— RB Ryan Williams

— LB Kevin Minter

— LB Kenny Demens

— T Bobby Massie

— TE D.C. Jefferson

— DE Ronald Talley

    Well here we go again. I’m watching the Cardinals game and it’s not even half way through the first quarter and Palmer has thrown an interception. I feel like I’m watching our POOR QB play from last year!!!!!!!! Come on if he can’t get it done then go to our back up!!! Or better yet don’t throw the ball only run it!!!

    Oh, for the love of Christ, CAN THIS DEFENSE START PAYING SOME ATTENTION TO THE TIGHT ENDS OF THESE OTHER TEAMS??? How many more TE’s need to have MONSTER games against the Cardinals before we attempt to correct this problem???

    I’ll say it again, just because we don’t use our TE’s, that doesn’t mean we don’t have to defend the TE’s we play against. DAMMIT!!!

    And has anyone else seen enough of Carson Palmer? It comes as no surprise to me, so my question goes out to those who believed he was going to make this team better.

    This is the decision I didn’t like:
    Alfonso Smith did not rush the ball at all during the game before he fumbled the ball.
    We should have handed it to Ellington or Mendenhall. They had reps and they did not fumble the ball. If we gave Alfonso Smith the ball a bit during the 1st and 2nd quarter, then maybe handing it to Smith was the right choice. We should only give the balls to the people who started the momentum. You pulled someone from the sideline and putting them in gave the 49ers the huge advantage.
    -The fumble by Larry Fitzgerald was part of the reason to our loss. We were down the field and that was the last time where we got to that position. Why is it that everytime Fitzgerald has really good numbers that we lose the game. First against STL, he had 80yds and 2TDs. Now, against SF, he had over 100yds and 1TD. I don’t understand.
    -And lastly, we should have had a fast pace offense during the last minute of the game. Why did we just waste time and just say the game was over? We could have tried to go down the field fast and possibly if we did score a touchdown, we gone for the onside kick but we didn’t even try.
    -As I said, the Offense would do much better than the last 2 games they played and I was right. And the team with the key turnover to change the game was the 49ers as they forced the fumble on RB Alfonso Smith.

    Palmer’s play started out awful and elevated himself to acceptable.

    Fumbling Fitzgerald — needs to hold onto a ball until the next game

    Defense was good, and finally got gassed at the end of the game.

    Play calling — was at best awful. Why put Smith in for the 1st time in the 4th qtr being totally cold?????????. Two fourth and inches, we had no belief in our offensive line — we punted. Why not hurry up to the line at a minimum the 49er’s could have used a time-out. At best some weird / scared play calling.

    LT Sowell was beat and beaten most of the day. The edge rushers had a field day against him.

    Mathieu is the real deal. He is a playmaker.

    Powell had a rough day. Bell was up and down. Good run support, horrible on pass plays.

    If the Cards want to be at the next level — they have to get a better offensive line. The difference in the game, was the OL play. Palmer had little time against 4 or 5 pass rushers. Kapernick had more time with 5 or 6 pass rushers.

    Hi Darren,
    I can’t believe some of the dumb stuff that happened on offense:
    1) Alfonso Smith has never been a great running back in the NFL. Why was he in when other RB’s were Available. That’s on Steve for keeping him.
    2) Want to know why our third conversions are so bad. Who runs an empty backfield on 3rd downs with a a QB that’s not very mobile. Come on Bruce, you have done this many times per game, leaving Carson without many options and the defense with there ears pinned back.
    3) By not running more in the 1st half you gassed our defense. This showed its ugly head in the 2nd half. That’s on you Bruce.
    4) Carson, quit forcing the ball into the middle. It’s killing your stats.
    5) Larry we love you. Seams to happen once a year.
    Go Cardinals!

    Gee…. When did the Cards resign Derek Anderson…. Oh wait that was Palmer in a Card uniform. One has a hard time telling the difference bewtwen the two now-a-days….

    Hey BA, if your offense is putrid maybe it is partially due to your play calling… 1st Qtr,- 3rd down 1 yd to go. With Ellignton and you have Palmer throw the ball, with his lack of completion ability on 3rd down…. Re-think it…

    The Cards should have won this game, instead they gave it away….

    Best wishes to Campbell for a speedy recovery. It was sickening to see him carried off the filed. I hope you will be ok…..

    I’m sorry, but Palmer has to sit. Even though he made a few good throws later in the game, he missed way to many easy throws. Was either too late, or too high on his passes. It’s time to sit Palmer and go with the more mobile Stanton. 9 picks in 6 games is simply unacceptable. I’m sorry. Enough is enough.

    most important thing is c.campbell is is usually the case,mistakes and turnovers decide a game between two good teams,now gotta suck it up for seattle,who ever made our schedule should just change their occupation,cause they suck at it.

    the offense did make strides,but we just need to limit turnovers and take advantage of opportunities,floyd did’nt need that contact in the endzone,he had the touchdown without it,and housler needed to catch that deep pass when he was open and not get turned around,would probably been another touchdown.thought the running game was good and the oline played better.can also really tell when we get some speed going how it starts to open things up,really need a burner this draft.

    This team was torched by TE Jared Cook, Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis, and Greg Olson (had a lot of yards).

    -It is great that we can hold the receivers but we need someone that is capable in stopping Tight Ends.
