( as always.. offensive plays first.. then the defense, time permitting )

1st Quarter of Cardinals Game 8


1st and 10 at SF 25 Frank Gore rush up the middle for 6 yards to the SF 31, tackled by Paris Lenon.
Goodwin slightly slides the NT over to the right to help open a lane for Gore.. Boone leans in left to help Goodwin, but really should have proceeded 2nd level for the ILB, was kinda useless here.. but fortunately Miller's lead block did enough on that ILB.. AD did just enough to keep LE away.. the other ILB charged into wrong gap.. Boone's/Miller's ILB got an arm on Gore, but Gore basically lunged forward to get as much as he could on the way down. Rio didn't sustain tackling CB block.

2nd and 4 at SF 31 Alex Smith pass short right incomplete to Manningham
the ROLB was working Miller back to Alex, but the pass was quick. Rio interfered with by CB and flagged.

1st and 10 at SF 38 Frank Gore rush over left tackle for 12 yards to the 50 yard line, tackled by William Gay for a 1ST down.
Boone crashed left but ran into lots of traffic from Goodwin and Staley.. Goodwin briefly blocked the blitz ILB as he tried to get out wider left.. Staley blocked in to seal RE as Iupati pulled outside to block the incoming S.. Iupati's presence also cause the other ILB to go around him and take himself away from Gore.. good block on ROLB by Walker to seal other side of rush lane.

1st and 10 at 50 Frank Gore rush up the middle for 5 yards to the ARIZONA 45, tackled by Adrian Wilson.
Everything about this run direction screamed left side, but because VD struggled badly with the penetration of the LE, Gore brilliantly made a cut back to the right just behind VD getting backed up. Was afforded a little extra room to the right thanks to an earlier cut block on the SOLB.

2nd and 5 at ARI 45 Alex Smith pass complete to Kendall Hunter for 6 yards to the SF 46, tackled by Patrick Peterson, SF penalty 15 yard Face Mask on Alex Boone accepted.
Iupati didn't get a good initial block on the RE as he was to block and release out far right to block downfield for Hunter on this screen pass play.. Alex had enough time to get it to Hunter... Iupati looked slow and lethargic in getting to and locating a target to block.. so he did nothing.. Boone blocked an incoming ILB, but too many free AZ defenders converge. Brutal penalty on Boone, and a very weak call.

Timeout SF 49ERS, clock 12:11.
2nd and 14 at SF 46 Alex Smith pass complete to Mario Manningham for a loss of 3 yards to the SF 43, tackled by Patrick Peterson.
3mR.. super quick screen pass to Rio, but the CB slipped instantly beyond Crabtree to snuff this one out.

Delay of game penalty.. 5 yds.. wheels fell off after the Boone penalty.
3rd and 22 at SF 38 Frank Gore rush up the middle for a loss of 1 yard to the SF 37, tackled by Calais Campbell.
Staley beat inside by RE and that was that...

4th and 22 at SF 38 Andy Lee punt for 55 yards, returned by Patrick Peterson for 5 yards to the ARIZONA 27, tackled by Tavares Gooden, SF penalty 15 yard Unsportsmanlike Conduct on C.J. Spillman accepted.
_______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at ARI 27 John Skelton pass complete to LaRod Stephens-Howling for 24 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 49, tackled by Donte Whitner for a 1ST down.
3-4.. 5mR.. Brooks flies in but gives no thought to the RB screen being set up.. Justin, Aldon, and Brooks were hungrily closing on QB, but the screen pass gets out.. Whitner backpeddles and spins to avoid blocks and stay alive.. finally, he makes the stop with Ray and Goldson converging at sideline.

1st and 10 at SF 49 LaRod Stephens-Howling rush over right tackle for no gain to the SANFRNCSCO 49, tackled by Patrick Willis.
Nickel.. Willis stays clean and Ray disengages from RG to make this quick stop on a draw.

2nd and 10 at SF 49 LaRod Stephens-Howling rush up the middle for 1 yard to the SANFRNCSCO 48, tackled by Aldon Smith.
3-4.. Sopo anchors the C and slides along to clog the run lanes.. Ray engages the RT but loses footing and goes down.. which pleasantly enough, still helps clog up the run.. Justin gets inside of the LT/LG and scrapes down to also clog.. Aldon was covering the slot, but immediately ran towards RB to make stop.. Willis and Bowman free and waiting.. domination from all here.

3rd and 9 at SF 48 John Skelton pass incomplete to Andre Roberts.
Nickel.. 4mR with Justin giving the LG a shove before dropping back 5 yds and nearly picking off the quick WR curl route. (Brown was close behind the curl route) Brooks slipped inside of the RT quickly to force pressure on the right and Aldon drove the LT back toward the QB to pressure the left..

4th and 9 at SF 48 Dave Zastudil punt for 40 yards, returned by Ted Ginn Jr. for 5 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 23, tackled by Justin Bethel, ARIZONA penalty 10 yard Holding on Quentin Groves accepted.
_______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at SF 23 Frank Gore rush up the middle for 5 yards to the SF 28, tackled by Paris Lenon.
Iupati and Goodwin team up to drive the NT out of run lane.. Boone stands up the LE and struggles but manages to keep him from getting Gore.. Poor lead block from Miller, who lets ILB tackle Gore as he comes through.

2nd and 5 at SF 28 Alex Smith pass complete to Mario Manningham for 10 yards to the SF 38, tackled by William Gay for a 1ST down.
quick 3 step out completed to Rio.. no issues

1st and 10 at SF 38 Alex Smith pass complete to Frank Gore for 11 yards to the SF 49, tackled by Adrian Wilson for a 1ST down.
PA pass.. good initial pass pro.. liked seeing Walker keep the outside stunting RE away.. Goodwin began to lose the left outside shoulder to the NT.. Miller was also losing on an inside rush from the LE as Alex got rid of it.

1st and 10 at SF 49 Kendall Hunter rush over right tackle for 9 yards to the ARIZONA 42, tackled by Daryl Washington.
Goodwin won his battle keeping the NT away from rush lane.. Boone pulls wide right and takes out the incoming S outside.. AD twists the LE away from lane.. Walker and Miller team up to remove the SOLB, as Iupati pulls to lead block well on an ILB for Hunter.

2nd and 1 at ARI 42 Frank Gore rush up the middle for 17 yards to the ARIZONA 25, tackled by Kerry Rhodes and Paris Lenon for a 1ST down.
VD (at LT) angles out the incoming S to open one lane, and Iupati drives the RE away to open the other rush lane.. Goodwin gets a 2nd level ILB block.. AD blocks the LE for long enough.. Boone takes on the NT for long enough.. Staley (in unbalanced line) angles out the SOLB..

Holding call on Garrett Celek
1st and 20 at ARI 35 Kendall Hunter rush up the middle for 5 yards to the ARIZONA 30, tackled by Calais Campbell.
Goodwin keeps the NT busy.. Both Iupati and Boone shoot 2nd level but neither can get to ILB flying inside too quickly.. Staley does initially well on RE but loses power battle soon after..

2nd and 15 at ARI 30 Alex Smith pass complete to Delanie Walker for 23 yards to the ARIZONA 7, tackled by Kerry Rhodes for a 1ST down.
pass pro holds well and Alex get the deep pass out to beat the zone coverage around Walker.

1st and 0 at ARI 7 Frank Gore rush up the middle for a loss of 3 yards to the ARIZONA 10, tackled by Sam Acho.
Misdirection cutback for Gore doesn't fool the ROLB at all.. Boone pulls and tries to lunge for the WOLB, but it's too easy for the penetrating WOLB to get upfield first for the tackle.. nothing Boone could do. Had the WOLB hesitated at all, then the play had a great chance to succeed.

2nd and 0 at ARI 10 Kendall Hunter rush up the middle for 7 yards to the ARIZONA 3, tackled by Paris Lenon.
Goodwin does enough to keep the NT away... Boone and AD block the LE... Iupati pulls wide to get good block on SOLB.. Walker lead blocks an ILB well enough.

3rd and 0 at ARI 3 Alex Smith pass complete to Michael Crabtree for 3 yards for a TOUCHDOWN. 6 0
Quick and instant jump ball pass to Crabtree, who was getting pressed.. Crabtree goes up and plucks the pass in with the strong hands.

David Akers extra point GOOD. 7 0
David Akers kickoff for 65 yards for a touchback.
________________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at ARI 20 John Skelton pass incomplete to Rob Housler.
3-4.. 4mR.. quick sideline throw, but no one there.. clear miscommunication. Justin was doubled well.. Sopo driving his RG back toward QB.. Ray made a little dent on his RT.. Aldon on a wide arc was washed out by LT.. Brooks with decent coverage out in the flat.

2nd and 10 at ARI 20 John Skelton pass complete to Patrick Peterson for a loss of 2 yards to the ARIZONA 18, tackled by Ahmad Brooks.
Nickel.. 4mR with Brooks dropping into coverage as he recognized this designed screen to PP7.. nice hustling tackle Brooks as Rogers and Bowman closed in.

false start AZ RT 5 yds
3rd and 17 at ARI 13 John Skelton pass incomplete to Larry Fitzgerald.
Nickel.. 4mR with Brooks standing inside of Justin out wide on LT... Justin abuses the LT back toward QB.. Brooks takes a leaping swipe but just misses bat down.. quick throw to Fitz on a slant with tight Brown coverage on his back.. Fitz can't pull it in before face-planting... wouldn't matter.. he was short of the 1st anyway.

4th and 17 at ARI 13 Dave Zastudil punt for 52 yards, returned by Ted Ginn Jr. for 9 yards to the SF 44, tackled by Reggie Walker.
________________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at SF 44 Frank Gore rush draw play for 4 yards to the SF 48, tackled by Darnell Dockett.
Walker angles out the SOLB.. AD battle stalemates with LE.. Iupati pulls and blocks.. no one. Goodwin and NT break even, but hey, he is kept away just enough.. Boone gets his ILB.. just not enough push up front from AD and Goodwin here.

End of 1st Quarter

2nd Quarter of Cardinals Game 8


2nd and 7 at SF 47 Frank Gore rush over left end for a loss of 1 yard to the SF 46, tackled by Calais Campbell.
VD gets immediately poor angle on the RE, so he fails to seal him off for this outside run. Staley seal off the NT, and other than that, there was lots of fail to go around once VD couldn't seal his RE.

3rd and 8 at SF 46 Alex Smith pass complete to Kyle Williams for 4 yards to the 50 yard line, tackled by Quentin Groves.
5mR was picked up well with Gore blocking his ILB.. would have liked to see Alex wait for deeper route to develop (like VD here), but Alex knew the heat was coming blindside and didn't trust that it would hold as well as it did.

4th and 4 at 50 Andy Lee punt for 40 yards, fair catch by Patrick Peterson at the ARIZONA 10.
_________________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at ARI 10 LaRod Stephens-Howling rush up the middle for a loss of 5 yards to the ARIZONA 5, tackled by Ray McDonald.
3-4.. The RG and RT pulled right, leaving the TE to try and crash in on RayMac... lol! big mistake!.. He cuts straight through and destroys the RB for a loss.

2nd and 15 at ARI 5 LaRod Stephens-Howling rush over right tackle for 5 yards to the ARIZONA 10, tackled by Patrick Willis.
3-4.. Sopo and the C stalemate.. RayMac penetrates inside of the RT, but this takes him away from rush lane.. TE gets a decent pop on Bowman 2nd level.. Brooks gets walled off by FB as he turned the arc.. the RG shoots 2nd level to get block on Willis, but Willis is able to disengage to make stop as Rogers and Whitner converge.

3rd and 10 at ARI 10 John Skelton pass complete to Early Doucet for 16 yards to the ARIZONA 26, tackled by Chris Culliver for a 1ST down.
Nickel.. 4mR.. Justin, Ray, and Brooks get quick upfield rush (Aldon stumbles on slow inside stunt), but this screen hurts us.. RT gets downfield block on Bowman (but should have been called for holding)... Goldson slices past downfield LG block, but only gets a piece of the WR's legs to get him off balance... at least it made for an easier tackle for Culliver.

1st and 10 at ARI 26 John Skelton pass incomplete to Andre Roberts, broken up by Chris Culliver.
3-4.. 4mR as Aldon covers the shifted TE on an out route... Justin slips quickly inside of the LT as the LG and C block Sopo (Justin gets big hit on QB)... Ray drives RG back well.. Brooks makes nice move around RT, but is too wide to make any real impact.. throw is out but very high and the WR takes a shot in the back as the ball glances off his hands from Brown.

2nd and 10 at ARI 26 LaRod Stephens-Howling rush over left tackle for a loss of 2 yards to the ARIZONA 24, tackled by Isaac Sopoaga.
3-4.. Sopo workd his way through and around a lazy block from the C to make stop... the LG pulls but can not recover to get a blitzing Whitner, who also is there for the stop.. LT and TE gang up to take on Justin.. Ray works way through RG, but the play is done by then.

3rd and 12 at ARI 24 John Skelton pass complete to Rob Housler for 3 yards to the ARIZONA 27, tackled by Carlos Rogers.
Nickel.. 4mR but the pass was quick and not much pressure to speak of.. thrown to TE who chips Brooks on his way to a short, out route.. ball thrown poorly, so no chance of YAC as Rogers flies in to make strong leg tackle.

4th and 9 at ARI 27 Dave Zastudil punt for 53 yards, returned by Ted Ginn Jr. for 35 yards to the ARIZONA 45, tackled by Dave Zastudil.
__________________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at ARI 45 Alex Smith pass incomplete to Delanie Walker.
5mR and Gore again does well to pick up blitz LB.. ball thrown slightly behind Walker, but he got both hands on it and ball dropped. Drop # 1

2nd and 10 at ARI 45 Kendall Hunter rush over left tackle for 8 yards to the ARIZONA 37, tackled by Daryl Washington.
Iupati pulls left to clear out the WOLB.. Staley gets good block on RE.. VD can't get in front of the pursuing ILB 2nd level.. Boone pulls and get deep but S did nice job making a block impossible.. Miller was 2nd level leading the way, but rather poor block on the ILB VD missed and running toward Hunter

3rd and 2 at ARI 37 Frank Gore rush up the middle for 3 yards to the ARIZONA 34, tackled by Paris Lenon for a 1ST down.
VD pulls inside to take out the WOLB.. Goodwin and Boone team up to maul the LDT.. Iupati and Staley team to get push on the RDT.. AD angles out the SOLB.. The ILBs have trouble locating and getting to Gore in time to stop the conversion

false start, Iupati.. 5 yds
1st and 15 at ARI 39 Frank Gore rush up the middle for no gain to the ARIZONA 39, tackled by Dan Williams.
AD lets the LE through after minimal contact and Miller walls him off.. Goodwin struggles but does enough on the RE.. Boone gets good pop on the NT but doesn't sustain him or continue to drive him back.. so the NT just charges back into the run lane to make the stop.

2nd and 15 at ARI 39 Alex Smith sacked by Daryl Washington for a loss of 8 yards to the ARIZONA 47.
5mR.. well disguised ILB blitz.. Alex has time to set, but must not like the two deep options on his left. Looks like he wants to check down, but Gore is eclipsed on other side of Iupati as the ILB blitzes past Goodwin's left shoulder. Alex starts to run to the right, but that is right into an angle for the LE vs AD.. so he cuts back left but the ILB and others converge quickly.

Timeout 49ERS, clock 6:52.
3rd and 23 at ARI 47 Alex Smith pass complete to Michael Crabtree for 22 yards to the ARIZONA 25, tackled by Kerry Rhodes.
The inside DT from the 3 man DL beats Iupati around his left shoulder on route to Alex, but the pass gets out in time. Otherwise, good pass pro all around. Looks like it is a clear out play design to get the ball quickly into Crabtree's hands over the middle on a jerk route for YAC.. worked very well, and Crabtree impressed his way into another 7 extra yards back into FG range (and nearly the first down).

4th and 1 at ARI 25 David Akers 43 yard field goal GOOD. 10 0
David Akers kickoff for 65 yards for a touchback.
_______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at ARI 20 John Skelton pass complete to Andre Roberts for 6 yards to the ARIZONA 26, tackled by Carlos Rogers.
3-4.. 3 step quick out to WR caught.. Brooks with a near hurdle on arc towards the QB, and perhaps could have batted it if he'd focused only on doing that. Rogers closes quickly and wrestles the WR to the turf as Whitner and Bowman converge.

2nd and 4 at ARI 26 LaRod Stephens-Howling rush over right tackle for a loss of 3 yards to the ARIZONA 23, tackled by Ray McDonald.
3-4.. RayMac with an arm-over move to get excellent penetration on the RG and haul the RB down in backfield.. Brooks was stout and close to RB vs RT.. Willis penetrated the right gap and smacked the lead FB as he continued on to the RB. Justin converges soon after.

3rd and 7 at ARI 23 John Skelton pass incomplete to Larry Fitzgerald, broken up by Chris Culliver.
Nickel.. camera late to the snap.. could see good pressure up the middle and in QB's face from an Aldon inside stunt. Impressive + physical press coverage from Culliver vs Fitz on a slant route. Culliver goes over top to knock the pass from Fitz's hands. Really special coverage.. made it look easy.

4th and 7 at ARI 23 Dave Zastudil punt for 54 yards, returned by Ted Ginn Jr. for 9 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 32, tackled by Justin Bethel.
_______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at SF 32 Frank Gore rush over left tackle for 4 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 36, tackled by Paris Lenon.
another unbalanced line with VD at LT and Staley other side.. VD blocks the WOLB a couple yds downfield, but not getting any push, which causes congestion.. Iupati lets RE slip past him and Miller gets a pop on him but wasn't very effective.. Goodwin gets a shove in on the NT as he heads downfield for LB block.. Boone crashes hard left and gets a dent, but there's just too much cloggage to get more.

2nd and 6 at SF 36 Alex Smith pass complete to Mario Manningham for 6 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 42, tackled by William Gay for a 1ST down.
3 step drop, quick throw to Rio on an out route for the first down.. all went well here

1st and 10 at SF 42 Alex Smith pass complete to Delanie Walker for 14 yards to the ARIZONA 44 for a 1ST down.
Quick PA.. Deep drop and Alex waits for the plays downfield to develop.. Iupati pulls right to provide a block on LE.. pass pro was good.. Alex hits Walker on a deep out. Pass was actually just barely tipped by a leaping underneath LB.. the DB in coverage was out of control and stumbled past Walker as he tried to cut the route. Great focus on making the catch and keeping feet in bounds, Delanie... oooh the irony.

1st and 10 at ARI 43 Alex Smith pass complete to Michael Crabtree for 8 yards to the ARIZONA 35, tackled by William Gay.
Instant throw to Crabtree to take advantage of the 10 yard CB cushion.. Crabtree gets 8 on the play.

2nd and 2 at ARI 35 Alex Smith pass complete to Vernon Davis for 25 yards to the ARIZONA 10, tackled by Kerry Rhodes for a 1ST down.
Quick PA after VD shifts to give Alex a look at who is on his coverage.. beauty of a throw to VD on a deep post with the S trailing. Good pass pro.

1st and 0 at ARI 10 Alex Smith sacked by Calais Campbell for a loss of 6 yards to the ARIZONA 16.
quick PA and Gore cuts down the LE nicely.. but Alex isn't liking his options and eats a brutal sack, as the RE gets inside of Staley and then runs straight through and between Iupati and Goodwin. Bad hit, Alex... ouch.

Timeout ARIZONA CARDINALS, clock 1:54.
2nd and 0 at ARI 16 Alex Smith pass complete to Mario Manningham for 7 yards to the ARIZONA 9, tackled by Patrick Peterson.
Quick PA and nice decision as he looks right to left and finds an open Rio on an out route as extra attention went to Moss. Pass pro was good.

Timeout SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS, clock 1:47.
3rd and 0 at ARI 9 Alex Smith pass complete to Michael Crabtree for 9 yards for a TOUCHDOWN. 16 0
Crabtree underneath on a little flat route... a false step, poor balance and footwork by PP7 help make this an easier TD on the 6 needed yds for a TD.

David Akers extra point GOOD. 17 0
David Akers kickoff for 65 yards for a touchback.
_______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at ARI 20 John Skelton pass incomplete to Michael Floyd.
Nickel.. 4mR.. impressive burst penetration from RayMac up the A gap over C right shoulder, but QB stepped aside and threw pass.. an inaccurate comeback pass at the sideline with decent trail coverage from Culliver.

2nd and 10 at ARI 20 John Skelton pass complete to Larry Fitzgerald for 13 yards to the ARIZONA 33, tackled by Carlos Rogers for a 1ST down.
Nickel.. 4mR.. minimal pocket collapse from all over.. throw to Fitz on an underneath in route to take advantage of very soft cushions (mainly Rogers, who makes stop as Goldson arrives).

1st and 10 at ARI 33 John Skelton pass complete to Andre Roberts for 12 yards to the ARIZONA 45, tackled by Donte Whitner for a 1ST down.
Nickel.. 4mR.. late pressure from Ray as he gets around RG's outside shoulder and nearly bats the pass. Ball caught by open WR as Cox and Whitner converge.

Timeout ARIZONA CARDINALS, clock 1:11.
1st and 10 at ARI 45 John Skelton sacked by NaVorro Bowman for a loss of 9 yards to the ARIZONA 36.
Nickel.. 5mR.. Bowman blitzes between the RT/RG gap, and the diminutive RB could not handle him whatsoever..

2nd and 19 at ARI 36 John Skelton pass incomplete to Michael Floyd, broken up by Perrish Cox.
Nickel.. 4mR.. nice face pressure to QB by Aldon stunting inside as Justin drives the LT back towards QB... pass badly overthrown and Culliver was very tight behind WR.. pass went through and off the hands of Cox, who was a yard behind Culliver and WR... would have been a nice leaping INT had he hauled it in. (was a LG hold on Aldon not called)

3rd and 19 at ARI 36 LaRod Stephens-Howling rush draw play for 11 yards to the ARIZONA 47, tackled by Ray McDonald.
Nickel.. 3mR.. draw to RB.. Great job by RayMac to slip off C/LG blocks and hustle to make tackle on RB from behind. Willis, Brown, Goldson converge and would have stopped him anyway.

Timeout ARIZONA CARDINALS, clock 0:05.
4th and 8 at ARI 47 John Skelton pass intercepted by Chris Culliver at the ARIZONA 8, returned for no gain to the ARIZONA 8, tackled by Larry Fitzgerald.
camera was late on the snap. I see RJF, Justin, Ray, and a delayed Willis blitz coming... Good pocket and time for QB though.. able to really step up into this Hail Mary pass.. still didn't get much distance on it.. to the 5 yard line.. Culliver stepped in front and caught it after it clunked around off his various body parts as he went down on his back.


End of 2nd Quarter

3rd Quarter of Cardinals Game 8


1st and 10 at ARI 20 John Skelton pass complete to Rob Housler for 5 yards to the ARIZONA 25, tackled by Donte Whitner.
Nickel.. 4mR... no real pressure on this quick throw.. a curl route to a TE with Willis giving a small cushion over top.. Whitner and Willis close quickly to make stop.

2nd and 5 at ARI 25 John Skelton pass complete to Andre Roberts for 8 yards to the ARIZONA 33, tackled by Carlos Rogers for a 1ST down.
3-4.. 4mR as Willis blitzes but OLBs drop in coverage.. Willis gets some late pressure in QB's face as QB releases.. WR comeback route with pretty tight coverage from Rogers on his back.

1st and 10 at ARI 33 LaRod Stephens-Howling rush over right tackle for no gain to the ARIZONA 33, tackled by Aldon Smith.
Nickel.. Brooks is stout vs TE and nearly gets a grasp of the RB.. Ray fights off initial double team without losing too much... Sopo gets very good push on the C driving him back into rush lane, but RB makes cutback to evade.. Aldon waits and puts good smack on the RB after the cutback as Willis also closes in.

2nd and 10 at ARI 33 John Skelton pass complete to Jeff King for 27 yards to the SF 40, tackled by Patrick Willis for a 1ST down.
Nickel.. 4mR as Bowman blitzes middle and Aldon drops in coverage.. Justin jolts back the LG and gets quick inside pressure on QB as he throws it. Poor coverage from Aldon on a TE quick out. Goldson has trouble getting around the traffic of another TE/CB to make sideline stop, and TE gets a handful more yds before Willis shoves him out.

1st and 10 at SF 40 John Skelton pass complete to LaRod Stephens-Howling for a loss of 1 yard to the SF 41, tackled by Patrick Willis.
3-4... Sopo gets in quick on a lazy C block as the C wants to get out and deep quickly on a screen pass block.. RayMac beats the RT over to force RB to cut back inside... Willis and Haggans were waiting to clean it up.

2nd and 11 at SF 41 John Skelton pass incomplete to Andre Roberts.
3-4.. 5mR as Whitner blitzes from outside... Whitner gets picked up well enough by the RB, and the throw is out before Whitner and Justin converge on QB. Bad overthrow on a deep in route.

3rd and 11 at SF 41 John Skelton pass complete to Andre Roberts for 4 yards to the SF 37, tackled by Donte Whitner.
Nickel.. 6mR.. Rogers blitzes from far outside and makes QB get rid of it quickly.. throw was high, so this helped keep any YAC from occurring... nice open field tackle from Whitner.

4th and 7 at SF 37 Dave Zastudil punt for 37 yards for a touchback.
_______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at SF 20 Frank Gore rush over left tackle for 1 yard to the SF 21, tackled by Calais Campbell.
Walker blocks well enough on the WOLB.. very poor job moving or sustaining the RE by Staley though, and that killed the play..

2nd and 9 at SF 21 Alex Smith pass complete to Ted Ginn Jr. for no gain to the SF 21, tackled by Sam Acho.
PA on reverse to Ginn.. Good throw to Ginn in the flat, but Ginn chickened out and ran out of bounds when he could have easily cut it back in vs the unsteady WOLB a few yds in front of him.

3rd and 9 at SF 21 Alex Smith pass complete to Michael Crabtree for 30 yards to the ARIZONA 49, tackled by Jamell Fleming for a 1ST down.
Another little jerk route underneath from Crabtree pays off well with a timely throw and a nice bit of YAC. Brutal block from Moss on a CB late in the play. Nice block on the incoming S by VD as well.

1st and 10 at ARI 49 Frank Gore rush up the middle for 3 yards to the ARIZONA 46, tackled by Darnell Dockett.
Miller takes out a penetrating ILB .. VD blocks out the WOLB.. Iupati helps Miller on that ILB.. Boone drove the NT back a few yards.. AD pulls left also and tried to help Goodwin on the RE.. was another unbalanced line with Staley far right... camera was a little late on the snap.. lots of pursuit and cloggage from the C/LG rush lane though.

2nd and 7 at ARI 46 Frank Gore rush up the middle for a loss of 1 yard to the ARIZONA 47, tackled by Darnell Dockett.
Walker angles out the SOLB.. Goodwin fails to sustain NT over his left shoulder and Staley fails to sustain RE.. Boone pulls around the right of Davis and the two collide as Boone goes down and AD trips over him, this frees up the LE to swallow up Gore as help from the RE and NT converge. Total block fail.

3rd and 8 at ARI 47 Alex Smith pass complete to Randy Moss for 47 yards for a TOUCHDOWN. 23 0
5mR but pass pro holds up well.. Alex bounces through two different reads before looking left and hitting an open Moss along the sideline. Had not noticed it much in prior games, but this is yet another little jerk route used that is again highly successful. Anyway, Moss has some room to run after the cut back outside.. As the CB takes an upward angle to shove Moss out of bounds, Moss cuts sharply back in and then another in cut to shake the fast incoming ILB.. Gets a great block inside by VD on a DB.. and Moss is off to the races.

David Akers extra point GOOD. 24 0
David Akers kickoff for 65 yards for a touchback.
______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at ARI 20 John Skelton pass complete to Andre Roberts for 5 yards to the ARIZONA 25, tackled by Carlos Rogers.
Nickel.. 4mR with Willis blitz inside as Brooks drops in coverage.. quick throw to bunched in WR on an out route, so no real pressure.. Rogers closes quickly for the tackle.

2nd and 5 at ARI 25 John Skelton pass complete to Rob Housler for 8 yards to the ARIZONA 33, tackled by Patrick Willis for a 1ST down.
Nickel.. 4mR as Willis blitzes again and Aldon drops in coverage.. was a quick curl route pass to TE.. Willis comes in free to lay a hit on QB just after he releases the pass. Caught by TE with Bowman and Whitner giving few yds of cushion and then closing for tackle.

1st and 10 at ARI 33 John Skelton pass incomplete to Michael Floyd, broken up by Tarell Brown.
3-4.. 4mR as Willis blitzes.. Aldon drops in coverage.. late pressure, but another quick throw on WR curl route... well covered by Brown.. QB missed a wide open WR over the middle.

2nd and 10 at ARI 33 John Skelton pass complete to Andre Roberts for 20 yards to the SF 47, tackled by Donte Whitner for a 1ST down.
Nickel.. 4mR.. Aldon stunts inside, but QB stays safe and clean as he steps to his left and throws.. wide open WR with Whitner closing over top... looks like Bowman didn't react quick enough to trail him across the field, but replay shows that Whitner was highly respectful of the WR speed and didn't commit earlier and didn't cut quickly as they WR did.

1st and 10 at SF 47 John Skelton pass complete to Early Doucet for 8 yards to the SF 39, steps out of bounds
Nickel D with RJF in at RE.. Rogers in the slot blitzed and had a free lane to put pressure on, but ball comes out quick to first read.. out route to WR who gets all he can before stepping out of bounds.

*penalty called on Fitz for O.P.I. .. he illegally picked Willis to open up that easy catch for Doucet


1st and 20 at ARI 43 John Skelton pass complete to Michael Floyd for 9 yards to the SF 48, tackled by Aldon Smith.
Nickel.. 4mR.. rush eliminated on this quick WR screen.. Rogers was well blocked by TE from making a tackle... Whitner dives in but misses leg tackle.. Bowman takes a brief block from C before disengaging and pursuing.. Aldon flying over from other side of the field gets the tackle as Goldson and Culliver converge.

2nd and 11 at SF 48 John Skelton pass incomplete to Michael Floyd, broken up by Tarell Brown.
Nickel.. 4mR.. nice surge by Justin vs LG and he gets a half-second away from a sack of QB as ball comes out.. Deep pass to WR and Brown is smothering WR's back as the all comes down.. neither can come up with it.

3rd and 11 at SF 48 John Skelton pass complete to Andre Roberts for 9 yards to the SF 39, tackled by Perrish Cox.
Nickel.. 5mR as Bowman blitzes up middle. Bowman gets good spin move on RB block attempt and is a split second away from a sack but the ball just gets out... Justin also gets pressure penetrating between C and LG to the face of QB.. pass caught on a WR stop route with Rogers and Cox within a yard of him.

4th and 2 at SF 39 John Skelton pass complete to Jeff King for 10 yards to the SF 29, tackled by Perrish Cox for a 1ST down.
Nickel.. 4mR.. made a dent to the left side OL with Aldon and Justin, but overall, plenty of time given... pass on its way.. TE was sandwiched in tight between Whitner and Cox.. and somehow the ball squeezed in there. Whitner jumped in front to try and pull the ball out as Cox drove up behind him. Whitner really had a shot of stepping in front for an INT, but the size of TE clearly made things difficult for Whitner.

1st and 10 at SF 29 John Skelton pass complete to Jeff King for 6 yards to the SF 23, tackled by Donte Whitner.
Nickel.. 4mR.. quick TE curl with pitiful cushion given by Cox... who then takes poor angle and misses tackle.. Whitner closes in to get him down though.

2nd and 4 at SF 23 John Skelton pass complete to Early Doucet for 5 yards to the SF 18, tackled by Carlos Rogers for a 1ST down.
Nickel.. 4mR.. quick out route to WR to take advantage of soft cushion by Rogers.. who pushed him out soon after. Refs gave Cards an extra yard that both Rogers and Harbaugh are incredulous over.

1st and 10 at SF 18 John Skelton scramble for 1 yard to the SF 17, tackled by Clark Haggans.
Nickel.. 5mR.. Bowman blitzes, avoids a RB cut block, but that does make him lose time to recover from the change of speed and direction... QB tries to step up, but trips over the legs of his RG that Ray is pushing slowly backwards.. QB on his way down as Haggans finishes him off.

2nd and 9 at SF 17 John Skelton pass incomplete to Larry Fitzgerald, broken up by Chris Culliver.
Nickel.. 4mR.. some pressure inside coming from RayMac as he gets penetration around outside shoulder of RG.. ball is out to Fitz on a post route in endzone.. Culliver with tight coverage on Fitz's back as Whitner comes in from the inside front.. ball just off the fingertip of Fitz's hand. He probably should have gotten more air under him, but Whitner coming over may have scurred him a little.

3rd and 9 at SF 17 John Skelton pass complete to Anthony Sherman for 7 yards to the SF 10, tackled by Patrick Willis.
Nickel.. 5mR Bowman blitz again... Either Bowman tripped prior to or because of a cutblock from the RB.. Brooks stunted inside of the RT and got to the QB just after the pass was on its way... caught by FB out of the flat.. he picked up a few more as Willis and Rogers converge to keep the gain minimal.

4th and 2 at SF 10 Jay Feely 28 yard field goal GOOD. 24 3
Jay Feely kickoff for 65 yards for a touchback.
_______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at SF 20 Frank Gore rush over left tackle for 1 yard to the SF 21, tackled by Paris Lenon.
Walker blocks the WOLB while Miller lead blocks the box S, though neither drive defenders away.. Iupati angles out the NT.. Staley did his job crashing and sealing off the RE.. Boone pulled left but the ILB penetration was quick and he never got the angle he needed.. but the ILB did on Gore.

2nd and 9 at SF 21 Alex Smith sacked by Darnell Dockett for a loss of 10 yards to the SF 11.
Boone allowed LE to penetrate inside his left shoulder.. Boone couldn't recover from the snap, and that was that for the QB. Alex really should have seen VD on the quick drag route over the middle... though had he thrown it, he'd have been more exposed to a nasty hit from the LE just as he released. The safe move was to eat the sack.. but damn... it becomes easier to see why fans get ticked off and bash the decisions he makes at times like this. I think if the game is on the line, he makes a throw here.. but knowing we are up 21 going into the 4th? He is fine with ultra-careful.


End of 3rd Quarter

4th Quarter of Cardinals Game 8


3rd and 19 at SF 11 Michael Crabtree rush over right end for 8 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 19, tackled by Paris Lenon.
Instant pass (lateral) to the sideline for Crabtree to beat the 10 yd CB cushion. Crabtree shakes and bakes his way for 8 yards.

4th and 11 at SF 19 Andy Lee punt for 45 yards, returned by Patrick Peterson for 1 yard to the ARIZONA 37, tackled by C.J. Spillman.
_______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at ARI 37 John Skelton pass incomplete to Early Doucet, broken up by Dashon Goldson.
2nd and 10 at ARI 37 John Skelton sacked by Ahmad Brooks for a loss of 5 yards to the ARIZONA 32.
3rd and 15 at ARI 32 John Skelton sacked by Aldon Smith for a loss of 11 yards to the ARIZONA 21.
4th and 26 at ARI 21 Dave Zastudil punt for 43 yards, fair catch by Ted Ginn Jr. at the SANFRNCSCO 36.
_______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at SF 36 Kendall Hunter rush up the middle for 5 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 41, tackled by Daryl Washington.
RE crashes left which makes Staley's seal block easy.. VD gets 2nd level quickly to block WILB.. Miller comes out to block the WOLB.. Walker pulls wide inside to blocl the incoming S, as Boone pulls wide as well and lunges barely gets anything on the other ILB who squirms around him to make tackle. This is not a grand stretch of drives for Boone.

2nd and 5 at SF 41 Kendall Hunter rush over right tackle for 3 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 44, tackled by Calais Campbell.
unbalanced line again with Staley right, VD left... Miller swings out wide to lead block an outside CB... Boone pulls and clears out the SOLB.. Staley seal blocks LE well.. Walker misses clean block of ILB who gets a piece of Hunter.. Iupati pulls but gets caught up in the bodies of NT vs Goodwin and Staley vs LE, so he can't do his thing... great scraping down the line and hard tackle by RE.

3rd and 2 at SF 44 Alex Smith sacked by Daryl Washington for a loss of 4 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 40.
6mR... heavy rush coming... Alex has a bit of time once he hits his back step.. doesn't like what he sees as Goodwin was allowing the blitz ILB around his left shoulder after combo blocking the other blitz ILB.. Alex steps up to avoid that ILB, but HUnter just then loses his block of the other ILB... Not a very aggressive effort by Hunter to block there.. just tried to do the minimal.. figuring Alex would get the ball out more quickly.

4th and 6 at SF 40 Andy Lee punt for 54 yards, returned by Patrick Peterson for 3 yards to the ARIZONA 5, tackled by Tavares Gooden, ARIZONA penalty 4 yard Illegal Block on Justin Bethel accepted.

Timeout ARIZONA CARDINALS, clock 7:54.

4th and 14 at ARI 29 Dave Zastudil punt for 52 yards, returned by Ted Ginn Jr. for 9 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 18, tackled by Sam Acho, SANFRNCSCO penalty Holding on Larry Grant declined, SANFRNCSCO penalty Illegal Block on Anthony Dixon declined.
_______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at SF 18 Alex Smith pass complete to Vernon Davis for 1 yard to the SANFRNCSCO 19, tackled by William Gay.
PA rollout pass.. was surprised we even threw another pass... all was good on the out to an open VD and he picks up a few more before getting escorted out of bounds.

2nd and 1 at SF 19 Kendall Hunter rush over left end for no gain to the SANFRNCSCO 19, tackled by Quentin Groves.
Iupati angles out NT.. VD struggled to contain the RE as he scraped to the sideline and helps with RB tackle.. Staley pulls out wide to block out the outside S.. Walker fails his block.. letting the WOLB slip through to get a piece of RB.. Miller lets Walker's LB through to go after his assignment of the ILB... mostly, Walker fails us here.

3rd and 1 at SF 19 Bruce Miller rush up the middle for 1 yard to the SANFRNCSCO 20, tackled by O'Brien Schofield for a 1ST down.
Not much push for this run headed behind RG.. the SOLB was able to come right in and make easy tackle on this FB quick-hitter.

1st and 10 at SF 20 Kendall Hunter rush up the middle for 2 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 22, tackled by Daryl Washington.
Miller goes wide to block out the S.. Iupati pulls right and gets his LB.. Goodwin did enough to keep the RDT away.. Walker angles out the SOLB.. Boone and AD get push on the LDT.. Boone was probably assigned to go 2nd level, but couldn't squeeze through the traffic so the ILB was free and made tackle.

2nd and 8 at SF 22 Kendall Hunter rush up the middle for no gain to the SANFRNCSCO 22, tackled by Quentin Groves.
Iupati struggles with RE and lets him get outside shoulder penetration.. Miller fails his lead block on an ILB... Goodwin didn't exactly win his NT battle either... cloggage FTW

delay of game penalty - 5 yds
3rd and 13 at SF 17 Kendall Hunter rush up the middle for 4 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 21, tackled by Paris Lenon.
Good pull block from Boone to get the WOLB... good lead block Miller to get the WILB.. Staley (with help from Hunter's quickness) does just enough to keep the RE off of RB.. Iupati rather lazy on his ILB, so that ILB disengages for tackle..

Timeout ARIZONA CARDINALS, clock 3:47.
4th and 9 at SF 21 Andy Lee punt for 49 yards, returned by Patrick Peterson for 5 yards to the ARIZONA 35.

_______________________________________________________________________

1st and 10 at SF 1 Alex Smith rush up the middle for 6 yards to the SANFRNCSCO 7, tackled by Darnell Dockett.
Simple QB tuck and drive your legs... he did so behind Boone and AD + Boone opened up a bigger hole than expected. Intriguing to me that Ck7 isn't in on at least this "drive" to finish up.

2nd and 4 at SF 7 Alex Smith rush for a loss of 1 yard to the SANFRNCSCO 6.
they didn't even show that final run to end the game... not a fig was given


End of Game
