San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco continues to get player back, and just in time. This week they face an Eagles team that is undefeated, and the 49ers need a win. Philadelphia will be without a few offensive lineman so San Francisco will look to take advantage and win th battle of the trenches.
Members of the San Francisco 49ers “Faithful 49″ loyalty program were offered “exclusive” pre-sale single game tickets for this Sunday’s matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, but just below the purchase window on Ticketmaster, fans were being offered resale seats for far less, often right in the same section.
What adjustments have the 49ers opponents made to be outscored 56-3 in the second half of the first three games this season?
In the wake of high-profile cases involving NFL players, Santa Clara city leaders took a stand issuing a resolution on Tuesday against domestic violence, but didn’t mention the recent arrest of a 49er player.
After Sundays loss Anquan Boldin criticized the referees and his comments have been blown out of proportion. Not only do those talking bad about Boldin not even see the entire quote, what Boldin did will help turn around the 49ers season.
For the 49ers to avoid a 3 game losing streak they will have to beat the Philadelphia Eagles. San Francisco should be able to win, especially at home, but not if they play like they have the past two weeks.
The melee appears to have broken at the start of half time near the 50 yard line seats in the upper deck, when 49er fans and Cardinal fans began jawing at each other across an aisle. The initial shoving sent fans down the stairs and onto a walkway below. At that point, fans in Cardinals gear who had not been previously involved began taking swings at the pile, which included both men and women.
The 49ers again fell apart in the second half of a game, letting the Arizona Cardinals overcome a 14-6 half time deficit to win 23-14. Some players and fans blamed the officials.
San Francisco raced to the early lead than watched their opponent come back take the lead and snuff any attempt of a 49er comeback. The end result being a 23-14 Cardinal victory and a 49er team under .500.
“When you lose, you not only lose a game, but you lose a little confidence and you lose a little swag,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew. “(The 49ers) have to get the win and they have to get the confidence and the swag. (People think) these guys are pros and they’re really confident. But when you lose, it’s like a fighter when he gets knocked out. When you lose you don’t know if you’re ever going to win another game.”
