I'm Still A Niner Fan

In Mexico City last night, the Forty-Niners fell to the previously winless Arizona Cardinals. While the game started off well for the Niners, it quickly became evident that they were not going to be able to move the ball against the vaunted (cough), Dennis Green inspired defense. After jumping out to a 14-0 lead, the Niners watched as Arizona scored 31 unanswered points. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of the game was San Francisco's inability to mount any sort of sustained offensive drive. Niner drives were so continuously short that the defense had little time to rest. It puts the team at a disadvantage when the coaching staff has to call plays, not with getting the ball down the field in mind, but keeping its own defense on the bench so it can catch its breath. Last night, the Niners were hard to watch. At least last week against the Cowboys, it was entertaining. This game was boring, though not for Cardinal fans.

First Niners game I've seen in awhile. I don't care too much for football anymore but I was intrigued by the 100,000+ Mexico city fans. Pretty sorry effort from SF but that Alex Smith kid looked pretty good. I say throw him into the FIRE!

I'm AMPED for the NBA season and may have some basketball side projects going on as well. I'll also be starting my own blog soon so we can hit each other up.

Good to hear from you man.
