    Cardinals 34, 49ers 7

    Cardinals finally landed their first win of the season, defeating their division rival 49ers 34-7. The fans who questioned personnel choices made since new ownership took over saw were quieted. The fans saying the 49ers were going to go undefeated were silenced. All you can hear around the league is this: THE CARDS ARE BACK.

    The game plan was to establish run. Understanding that the 49ers had one of the top LB cores in the league, coach Bates decided to attack it with 3 and sometimes 4 WR sets forcing one(or 2) LBs to come of the field for additional defensive backs.

    Granted the ground output wasn't great, Coach's plan was effective enough, as they were able to move the chains on a excellent 49er defense. With the threat of run established, the Cards took to the air with Matt Lienart and Anquan Boldin connecting for the game's first score. In the 2nd quarter, capitalizing on some great defense, cards added 10 pts to the score.

    In the 2nd half, 49ers came out firing. On their first drive Nate Davis drove his team on a effective drive that culminated in a 1 yard plunge by rookie FB Eric Pollard. Unfortunately, the 49ers could muster up little offense after that as the Cards cruised to victory.

    Game ball goes to both Matt Lienart and Cedric Peerman, who coach Bates made starters because he felt gave they gave team the best chance to win. Matt Lienart was 11-17 with 255 yards (2 TD, 1 INT). Peerman ran for 60 yards on 26 carries (1 TD) converting several key 3rd down plays.
