"And for a guy that's never played this game or understand what goes into it, the brotherhood that we build with blood, sweat and tears, I just felt like he has no say, no type of control in this league because he doesn't have any idea or any clue what we go through".
Well, for starters, overtime.
GLENDALE, Ariz. - Having Robbie Gould be the most risky and productive member of the offense was never Plan A, but the 49ers gladly will take what he's giving them as they wait for the offense to click. A 19-yard strike from Palmer to Fitzgerald with 32 seconds remaining in the game would send the 49ers packing with another loss in their back pocket. He finished 33-of-51 for 357 yards.
If 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer had been Carson Palmer-accurate Sunday, the Cardinals would be sitting at 1-3 right now.
Foster is still out with a high-ankle sprain, and he has missed the last two games.
Before their game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, at least 30 players knelt with others standing behind them in solidarity while the song played.
Linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong also had his best performance of the season.
- Andre Ellington did have a couple of drops, but he too had a TD-that-wasn't that left Cardinals scratching their heads on the call, and he was huge in overtime. Thomas threw Palmer for a 2-yard loss on a third-and-10 play to force a Cardinals punt late in the first half. That was especially so after the teams each kicked four field goals in regulation and spent the game unable to threaten any chances at actual touchdowns. Even though he is no longer with the team, his former teammates are still taking after him and are continuing to do demonstrations during the national anthem. He completed 24 of 49 passes for 234 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.
The 49ers are 5-0 in their last five versus the NFC West and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.
Fitzgerald, who had three catches for 13 yards before the winning grab, rose to catch the ball under tight coverage by Rashard Robinson.
Moving the ball between the 20's is great but its when the red zone comes up the Cardinals really struggle.
Week 4 also marked the third week in which Shanahan's offense failed to score a touchdown.
"You try to treat (field-goal tries) all the same, but let's be honest, that's hard to do", said Dawson, who was four-for-four after missing three field goals in the first three games. He was intercepted by Ray-Ray Anderson off a deflection.
He was also awful under pressure, completing just three of his 11 passes and taking three sacks when under duress, according to Pro Football Focus' Refocused recap.
"I'm exhausted, but hopefully we have a walkthrough Wednesday and we don't have to practice", Palmer said. Trump made his initial comments in Alabama the day after the 49ers played the Rams on September 21, and he has continued to express similar sentiments via social media. Arizona (2-2) would have to drive down the field in a minute or less. To be fair, the Cardinals were minus left tackle D.J. Humphries and backup left guard Alex Boone due to injury, and don't forget Mike Iupati was placed on injured reserve on Saturday. While the Cardinals (1-2) are coming off a short week following Monday night's 28-17 loss to the Cowboys, the 49ers (0-3) enter this game well-rested after their controversial 41-39 loss to the Rams on Thursday night in Week 3. And fortunately for the Cardinals, it was their touchdown.
Then, a few plays before Fitzgerald's winning catch, John Brown made what could have been the catch of the year. The first came during Week 16 when he replaced quarterback Ryan Lindley for a game against the Chicago Bears.
