Patrick Willis raises level of game play and lifts niners at just the right time



Patrick Willis singlehandedly saved that game for us, ladies and gents. He stole Peanut Tilman's move and punched the ball out for a fumble (recovered by Eric Reid). If that doesn't happen I think that the cards get the touchdown, with the way that they are moving the ball. If AZ had gotten decent 1st half play from the QB position they could have easily beaten us at home last sunday, which is why I'm starting to see Arizona's stock rising. I'm making the bold prediction that the Cards will beat the Seahawks this thursday night at home...my upset pick of the week! I just hope that the Cardinals don't have Teddy Bridgewater next year at QB, or they could be a force to be reconed with in 2014.

We almost saw the same fumble punch in week 2 Vs Indy, when a 49er defender punched the ball out of Reggie Wayne's grasp, unfortunately after his knee was down. If the Red and Gold defense could start doing this consistently we'd win way more close games. When we play them in AZ I hope that Mendenhall gets his carries and keeps holding that ball dangerously loose outside his body...it's a fumble/thunderpunch just waiting to happen. With how loose he holds it I bet even a light slap gets that ball out.

I'm super stoked that the 49ers weathered the storm of the tough early season schedule. and injuries. Hopefully the D line is not too soft up the middle this week if Dorsey is out. Also I'm hoping that Fangio is going to blitz a little more than usual, because Fitzpatrick can tear up a defensive backfield if given time.
