Golden Nuggets: 49ers need to beat the Cardinals

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, October 6th 2018

I can understand a losses to the Los Angeles Chargers or the Kansas City Chiefs. I can’t understand a loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Nope. No way.

The 49ers need to win this game. Failing to do so indicates a much larger problem. Despite injuries, scheme, whatever—the 49ers need to beat the Cardinals to show everyone the rebuild is going on-schedule. Sure, this is a “trap” game, but the 49ers aren’t exactly a team susceptible to the trap. They need to be able to (at the very least) beat teams like the Cardinals, who aren’t very good.

If they don’t—it’s a problem. One I don’t really want to think about right now. Here are some links.
