Nobody could blame Perrish Cox for confusing his uniform, defensive schemes or even what state he’s in these days. It’s been a constant switcheroo.
In their final game of the regular season, the 49ers beat a Cardinal team that was playing for their playoff lives. In a game that they had to win, Arizona put up a valiant effort, but could not beat a San Francisco team that enter the playoffs on a 6 game winning streak.
The NFL revealed Friday that the Chiefs and 49ers each had eight players voted into the Pro Bowl, including running backs Jamaal Charles of Kansas City and Frank Gore of San Francisco.
The last game played at Candlestick Park lived up to expectations. The contest had it all, and was an exciting, memorable end to a stadium that has treated fans to countless thrilling moments in the past. The game produced a finish and player that will never be forgotten in San Francisco.
With the Falcons threatening to take the lead at the end of the last regular season game at Candlestick Park, NaVorro Bowman picked off a broken up pass and sealed a 49ers playoff berth with an 89 yard race to the end zone.
The underdog Atlanta Falcons gave San Francisco all they wanted Monday Night, but could not pull off the upset. In the final game played at Candlestick Park the 49ers sent off the stadium in style with a dramatic, playoff clinching win.
NaVorro Bowman returned an interception 89 yards for a touchdown with 1:10 remaining, and the San Francisco 49ers clinched a playoff berth with a wild 34-24 victory against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night in the final regular-season game at Candlestick Park.
San Francisco has hit the midway point in their season and with a 6-2 record, they have to be happy with the overall play of the team. They have gotten a positive contribution from just about every member of the roster, and the only real gripes have to be a questionable offensive game plan to start the season and a free agent pick up that has not lived up to expectations.
Colin Kaepernick, who plays quarterback for the 49ers, recently donned a Miami Dolphins cap. The Offseason Storyline Enrage-O-Meter went all the way to a nine or so.
The 49ers defense needed time to warm up, then shut out the Falcons in the second half and allow San Francisco to stage a record rally in the NFC championship game. Linebacker NaVorro Bowman knocked away a fourth-down pass intended for Roddy White with 1:13 left helped preserve a 28-24 victory.
