Sure, the Cardinals are a team in disarray. They've lost a good skid of games, and don't look like they're going to march into the division leader's house and pull a game out. But still:

The problem with the Cardinals is not their defense.

Better hope the Cards score points on defense and special teams to even hope to have a chance.

Our chances at the division are slim and none.

I just can't see the Cards winning this game.

Brian Hoyer will throw it to Larry Fitzgerald though. He's light years better than Lindley and Skelton.. his biggest issue is experience in that offense.

Another issue could be.. how much does Arizona really care at this point?

It's a long shot for sure.. but who knows, stranger things have happened

If they played the 9ers at home, maybe they stand a slim chance. But in my new positive outlook, yes there is a chance they could put up a decent effort for a few quarters.

Negative Nancy alert! Same as I can see the Rams beating the Seahawks.

Both games could become a divisional dogfight. Or not.

Remember 1999 when we needed the Chiefs to lose to the Raiders (at Arrowhead) in the final week in order to win the AFC West and make the playoffs?

We need some of that karma!

You cannot stop Hoyer. You can only hope to contain him.

I'm not even considering a division championship Sunday. Sorry to use a bad pun but it simply "isn't in the Cards."

Had we not slept-walked through that Miami game this would all be moot any ways.

Meh. Let's do it 2011 Giants style and wreak havoc on the road all the way to our rings.

Very interesting that the Vikings announcer's name was, wait for it...

Paul Allen.

Tanzania? Is that you?

Haha, just watched that on the Top Ten Biggest Collapses on the NFL Network. If Nathan Poole can do it, certainly Fitz can :49ersmall:

(And with that post, I've been promoted to the Practice Squad. Only took a year of hard lurk to get here.)

Talked to Sam Adkins at work today.. He seemed pretty pumped by the fact that the Cards #1 choice for HC is already in the organization and will be putting "his" D in a place to wreck havoc on the Digits to cement next years paycheck.

Don't think it's been decided yet. The league sets the game times up for best ratings, so they don't announce until all of the seedings are set by team.

Assume the Seahawks will get the worst possible kickoff time, though. That's been a good predicter over the years. ;)

I'd like to think it can happen, but the Niners are gonna' knock the crap out of the Cards.

Or they could have just won another game instead of going 1-5 after starting 8-2.

Hey now. Just like Matt Flynn is destined to be a star in this league because he sat behind and learned from Aaron Rodgers, Brian Hoyer sat behind and backed up Tom Brady. Watch out, Niners! Here comes Brady Jr!

This might be Wiz's final game as HC, If he can get these guy's to play to the best of their ability on Sunday it will give a glimmer of hope for another year. Does that team care enough to give Wiz their all? That's the question.

Justin Smith looks to be out for this game. In 5 quarters of football since his departure, the Niners have given up 70 points. That's right. 70 points in 5 quarters of football. Manningham is lost for the season and VD is questionable to play and even if he does, I would expect to see some alligator arms from him.

A big question for the Niners is how much does an approaching 34 year old DT effect that defense? Aldon Smith has gone completely quiet since his departure and the Niners run defense looks completely in disarray. Can they contain Wells who is auditioning for 31 other teams?

The AZ defense is for real and Keaperpick is volatile against good pass rush's. Can that AZ defense show up and create havoc in Candlestick? Will they try and save Wiz's job? Can Kaeperpick adjust under violent circumstances to find new targets? Will Moss even go across the middle?

Stay tuned folks. There just might be a little magic left behind the Wiz's curtain.

I wouldn't bet money on it but I also won't be ignoring the goings on in this game.

I will have 3 games on in The SeaDen on Sunday at 4:25pm ET.

Big screen - Rams at Seahawks
TV2 - Packers at Vikings
TV3 - Cardinals at 49ers

I have no hope of Arizona winning this game. If by some miracle it looks like they have a shot in the 2nd half I will put them on the big screen [Hawks will be up 20+ by that time] and move the Hawks to a smaller TV.

I just can't see it. Not going to get my hopes up.

I would LOVE the Cardinals to pressure Kaepernick all day and pull out the win to hand us the division.

Not only do we win the division (and AP puts 210 yards up on the Packers to win the game, the rushing record and put Minnesota in the playoffs), but people start to say "hang on... Alex Smith went 18 of 19 for 232 yards and 3 TDs IN Arizona..." and we have ourselves a real big quarterback controversy in SF

I do think Minnesota will beat GB tomorrow....so if Arizona can pull off the miracle upset I think we are the #2 seed.

Only positive is we know Skelton & Lindley are beyond horrible....so Hoyer cannot really be any worse.

Last time we needed something like this it was Spergon Wynn for Minny at the Ravens in 2001. That did not go well..... 19-3 Ravens final.

Hoyer > Wynn ?????

I hear a lot of talk about Hoyer's lack of experience, but when's the last time someone talked about the 49rs lack of experience against Hoyer? That's the key to this one Dom.

In 2007, Hoyer was an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection. He completed 223 of 376 throws (.593) for 2,725 yards, 20 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He had six 200-yard passing games.
