The Monday Night Game could be a hard fought game coming down to execution and which team makes the first big play, or can turn into a blowout. The Cardinals will hope that thier defense can keep them close enough for Larry Fitzgerald to make an impact, while the 49ers look to continue their winning ways and take control of the division.
The San Francisco 49ers do not have the luxury of easing into the 2012 season. First up on the schedule is the Green Bay Packers, a team with multiple Pro Bowlers on both sides of the ball, yet it’s their offense that steals the show.
The 49ers have signed linebacker Ahmad Brooks to a six-year contract worth $44.5 million. John Madden told the KCBS morning crew now is the time you’ll see NFL teams signing key players as they deal with salary cap limitations.
Ahmad Brooks always wanted to stay in the Bay Area, a place that has become a new home after all those painful memories of getting cut by Cincinnati four years ago, and the San Francisco 49ers sure made it hard for him to leave.
Two San Francisco 49ers players and two Oakland Raiders players were among eight NFL players fined Friday for violent hits or other excessive actions against opponents last Sunday.
