Niners Lose Opener
The 49ers lost their home opener 23-13 against the Cardinals. Here is a quick rundown of what killed the 49ers. Time of possession killed them. Takeo Spikes killed them. Turnovers killed them. Piss poor officiating killed them.
The 49ers kept the game close in the first half despite committing three turnovers and giving the Cardinals great field position. The second half was a whole different story. After a fumbled onside kick by Takeo Spikes the 49ers offense struggled to get back on the field. The Cards had the ball forever in the second half, if I’m not mistaken the 49ers had the ball for one series.
Aside from that Frank Gore looked good, Parys Haralson looked good, and JT O’Sullivan looked good aside from the costly turnovers. If I were a Cards fan I’d be worried that you had great field position all game, got five turnovers and only put up 23.
