Jim RacaltoThis hit may go down as the cleanest, yet most violent, of the 2012 NFL season. Early in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s 49ers and Cardinals game, the Niners were handling business leading 24-3. The Cards, desperate to make some sort of comeback, were driving when quarterback John Skelton tossed a pass over the middle to receiver Early Doucet. Niners enforcing safety Dashon Goldson had other plans, and not only broke up the pass but nearly broke Doucet in half:

The San Francisco 49ers spent a lot of time this offseason upgrading elements of their passing game. They signed wide receivers Randy Moss andMario Manningham as free agents before drafting A.J. Jenkins, another wide receiver, in the first round. The 49ers wideouts failed to impress last season, so it made sense for the Niners to [...]
There was absolutely no beating around the bush on this one. I saw a picture of the girl on BustedCoverage, and from that point on I was quick and decisive. No questioning myself on this one – she was getting posted.
Long story short, the 49ers beat the sh$t out of the Cardinals on Monday Night Football. The only moral victory for the Cardinals was they now own the title of hottest...
Now that the season is at its halfway point, it is easier to get an accurate reading of how good a team really is. The Arizona Cardinals however may be one of the few exceptions to that thinking because of their very inconsistent play. They started out the season hot, winning their first four games on their way to becoming a potential Super Bowl contender because of how well...
Alex Smith was one passing attempt short of qualifying for the NFL’s single-game completion percentage record by a quarterback, and he said after Monday night’s win that he had no idea about being so close to the mark.
“To be honest, I didn’t have any idea,” Smith responded when told about the mark on ESPN’s postgame show.
As if that wasn’t enough, he added that he...
Tight end Todd Heap is inactive for Monday Night Football vs. San Francisco.
Rob Housler shall make another start in Heaps absence, but is nothing more than a low-end No. 2 fantasy tight end. Also of note, defensive lineman Darnell Dockett is active for Arizona.
This is one of the hottest Bleacher Babes we’ve seen in the crowd all year. Lots of Arizona Cardinals fans dressed up for Monday Night Football just days before Halloween. Most of the fans were bloated versions of Batman but we were lucky to find this gem in the crowd dressed as a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
I was confused because I thought most of the people in the crowd...
Which way does the thumb turn for the 49ers after their 24-3 rout of Arizona, including a record night for Alex Smith, Ted Ginn getting his giddy-up, Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner blowing up Cards in the open field, Michael Crabtree accelerating in the red zone, Randy Moss’ dazzling two-step, another defensive throttling, gaining midseason separation in the NFC West and much...
The 49ers lined up on Monday night without running back Brandon Jacobs but it wasn't because he was hurt. Jacobs was a healthy scratch against the Cardinals, declaring earlier in the week that he was healthy. "I'm ready whenever coach calls my name," Jacobs said last week. "I can't do anything about what's going on, but I can work hard and show coach...
Scoring touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers is proving to be one of the NFL's toughest tasks this season. The 49ers (6-2) have won four of their past five games, and they haven't allowed a touchdown in any of the victories during that span. "That's really impressive, really hard to do in this league," coach Jim Harbaugh said. "Everybody's...
