Wow. What a shit show. This team is really good at finding ways to truly disappoint its fans. In a game that should have been at least competitive turned into the Colt McCoy/James Connor show. Who and who you ask? Well, ask DeMeco Ryans. Those two destroyed a defense that shut down Kyler Murray a couple weeks ago. They missed countless tackles, made a couple obligatory stupid penalties and could not stop AZ at all. This team came out flat, uninspired, and was outhit, outplayed, and out-hustled badly in all phases off the game. No Kyler, no DeAndre, no problem.
Gorgeous fall day, and the fans were itching for some solid play, but instead got early turnovers from Kittle and Aiyuk, shoddy tackling, and just uninspired play all around. Jimmy G actually looked real solid, even under pressure, and should have had a better shot at winning this than he did. Instead, James Connor single handedly accounted for 173 yards of offense and Christian Kirk picked up where Hopkins left off for 7/91 himself.
And seriously, why is Josh Norman on the field? He himself prolly has 250 yards of penalties all by himself. He did somehow manage to get Kliff Kingsbury thrown out of the game for taunting. If Ambry can’t get on the field by now, how bad is he?
Fuck, I don’t know anymore. The players get to wear this loss with their lackadaisical fumbles, missed tackles, and stupid penalties, but you really have to wonder if the players have tuned out Shanahan. This team is making the same mistakes over and over and over. Either that, or the coaches just don’t know how to get this team moving in the right direction. They are 0-8 at home, and haven’t won a home game in over a year. The downward spiral continues.
And in other news, the Warriors are 8-1.
