Foote sits for Cardinals

Posted by Darren Urban on December 28, 2014 – 12:52 pm

Starting inside linebacker Larry Foote, who had played all but two defensive snaps this season, is going to miss a few more today. Foote is inactive with a knee injury — and probably a need to rest him for the playoffs. The Cardinals also will be without guard Jonathan Cooper, who is dealing with the wrist injury. The full inactive list for the Cardinals:

— QB Drew Stanton (knee)

— WR Brittan Golden

— S Chris Clemons

— LB Larry Foote (knee)

— G Jonathan Cooper (wrist)

— G Anthony Steen

— DE Kareem Martin

It’s unknown if 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh will be inactive as rumors swirl about his job status. (I kid. I kid.) But the 49ers will be without cornerbacks Tramaine Brock and Perrish Cox, as well as linebacker Ahmad Brooks.

    This first half is showing that this defense needs D. Washington next season. Granted he may miss 4-6 games next year with a suspension but with his cap number and the fact 3-4 teams want to interview T. Bowles, the defense needs Washington. Both Carson and Minter look like backup role players and special teams. We know they need one or two pass rushers next year but I think their first round draft pick should be a ILB

    It would be interesting to see other teams playing with their second string QBs. Not wishing injuries on anyone at all, just finding the thought an interesting one.

    We are winning with our 3rd string Lindley, and Rosgers is right now questionable to return. What if Wilson went down as well (although, the Rams are winning 6-0).

    There are a lot of if’s here…

    If we win (and it does look good)
    If the Seahawks lose (and that’s up in the air, but is looking good)

    Then I believe whatever happens between the Lions and the Packers we have homefield advantage throughout the playoffs(although a Lions win assures it)

    As crazy as it sounds, Our Cardinals may still secure the number one seed. Will they, I don’t know, but they can and with a QB carousel due to injuries this is incredible that with less than thirty minutes to play in the regular season we are this close.

    The Lombardi trophy or nothing at all!

    It’s now 20-17 49ers,
    Rodgers is back and GB is up
    and Seattle has the ball and it’s 6-6.

    Oh how I wish we’d have won in Atlanta.

    Well, it sure was nice of the run defense to show up today, wasn’t it? Seemed like Gore was money every damn tine he touched the ball. What concerns me is that this is the 3rd poor performance by the defense in the last 5 games. Not surprisingly, we lost all three. Not that the 49ers are chopped liver, but I really don’t know where their heads / hearts were today with their season over and the coach heading to the airport to take another job right after this game is over. BUT….from here, it’s pretty much nothing but some of the best / dynamic offenses in the NFL, which is what you expect in the playoffs.

    Hate to say it but barring a miracle and Stanton returning, we’re pretty much toast in the playoffs.

    Stat wise, it was a nice game for Lindley but….he really didn’t have to do much to show a significant improvement from where he has been. What matters ( to me, anyway ) is that with 2 minutes left and the ball at our 20, needing a FG to tie and keep playing, it’s pretty obviously a situation where the worst two things you could do would be turn the ball over and / or take a sack for a loss. And he proceeded to do one of each on the first two plays. Game over. Nice job, Ryan. What, they didn’t teach you that in QB school???

    I was REALLY hoping for a win and a 12-4 season. And this game was absolutely winnable. But in the last few minutes, the defense couldn’t stop Gore ( make that , ALL DAMN DAY they couldn’t stop Gore! ), and then the QB gave it away with the last chance we had.

    We might be in Carolina next week and might have a reasonable chance in that one. If we’re anywhere else, I’d say forget it. But it seems inevitable that at some point, with no QB, we’re gonna look like we didn’t belong in the playoffs, anyway.

    And after the season this looked like it was gonna be…..that really does suck.

    Looking at ticker at bottom of screen Lindley has decent stats, seems like he is not having a bad game. 1st half anyway.
    Rams fell apart, damn!!

    Even if we had won we would still be a wildcard right?

    Lindley’s 1st interception, no cardinal in sight, just red jerseys. The second inception at least one cardinal was near, but three 49ers were closer to the ball.

    Playing Lindley defies all logic, unless of course Thomas is worse — which at that point, if I were the Cardinal organization I would have Thomas on a suicide watch. How humbling, to be viewed worse than Lindley

    I want to congratulate Ryan Lindley on a well played game. Contrary to a plethora of pundits and some fair weather fans, he showed that he can make some big plays and lead the team. Once again, the game was lost by a sloppy, passionless Cards defense that better get its act together before next week. Go Cards!

    I get it. We’re show casing Lindley for an extra 7th round pick next year.

    Without a top notch QB…the Cardinals are who we thought they were.

    Lindley: Two TDs, 3 INTERCEPTIONS!!!
    Nuff said.
    Draft a quality QB early in 2015.
    Neither Lindley or Thomas should be on the roster next season.

    Cards fans seem to be soooo predictable! Find someone to serve as a scapegoat instead of accepting responsibility and being accountable! Yes, Lindley threw some interceptions…what QB doesn’t, and, especially given the fact that he’s had less than a month to learn the job and become proficient! If every member on this team had improved at his job as much as Lindley did from last week, this game would have been one of our biggest victories instead of a unnecessary loss. This team has had an entire season, so what accounts for the blown coverages and pathetic tackling? The 0-line stepped up today and the offense was better than our supposed top tier defense. We have experience against QBs who are notorious for their ability to scramble and be deadly threats with their legs…where was the pressure? Our defense was checked out. Can’t blame Lindley for that!
    Going into Carolina is not a pleasant thought considering our performance against the Falcons (and seeing what the Panthers did to them) and our inability to contain strong and athletic scrambling QBs. The Panther defense is making ours look like a bunch of bush leaguers. Stats don’t win games and season records are quckly forgotten without the Championship banners to hang.
    Giving away the last game of the season because it is “insignificant” is becoming a bad habit that is unacceptable for real warriors.
