I’m going to watch the San Francisco 49ers take on the Arizona Cardinals, not because it’s a depleted roster of 49ers players taking on a also injury ravaged Cardinals team. No, I’m watching because this may be the one game the 49ers can escape with a win. The Madden simulation I made had the 49ers at least tying, but they can pull out a ‘W’ in this game.
Everything else is going to be horrible. In fact, this is going to look more like a preseason game. Neither of the team’s preferred quarterbacks will be playing, their teams are decimated with injuries, and it’s all for pride now. It’s in games like these you just root for the utmost of chaos so you can be satisfied.
Oh...and I’ll be watching to hope Carlos Hyde helps my fantasy team, because Pierre Garcon certainly won’t be now that he’s on IR.
If any of you are bored, I suggest checking in on James Brady’s Extra Life stream he’s doing on Twitch and YouTube. It’s for a good cause and the guy is going to play some games, both good and terrible, for over two days. If you haven’t gone there for a bit to hang out with us, I suggest you do.
