49ers vs. Cardinals: Grading San Francisco's Week 4 efforts

Thomas threw Palmer for a 2-yard loss on a third-and-10 play to force a Cardinals punt late in the first half. "But we're suppose to care", Ravens safety Ladarius Webb said in a tweet. "That would have been demoralizing because we had our shots".
His final carry went for a 7-yard gain to the Cardinals 5.
San Francisco's 18-15 loss to the Cardinals was another lousy game for Hoyer, who connected on fewer than half of his 49 pass attempts and who for the fourth straight game threw an interception, one that former 49ers safety Antoine Bethea said came to him "like a punt return".
The 49ers managed a miserable 3.9 yards per play on the afternoon while the Cardinals defense pinned its ears back knowing Hoyer was going to be throwing so often.
Vancouver's Arielle Tuliao, who sang the Canadian national anthem ahead of Seattle's game, had said she would take a knee after her performance. "We got into a manageable third-and-goal and we didn't get it on third down". Over the past two seasons, he has started all 28 of the games that he appeared in but will miss Sunday's game with a tricep injury. The Cowboys also have defensive ace DeMarcus Lawrence who terrorized Carson Palmer in Week 3, recording three sacks and six quarterback hits.
"Oh man, Carson stood in there", Fitzgerald said. He's as tough as they come. "He never flinches, never wavers, and we're very happy to have him as our quarterback".
The Arizona Cardinals were defeated on Monday night against a superior Dallas Cowboys team. Coach Kyle Shanahan says 49ers plan to do "something together" to respond to President Trump's comments last weekend.
The 49ers defense has played well for most of the season, but the lack a consistent pass rush has hurt them. "Then, nearly immediately, my back locked up, I think from being stretched that far back".
"But I have a multi-step process for myself that I go through to get ready for Sundays, and I'll be ready".
But Hoyer wouldn't blame his back problem for his trouble connecting with receivers after that. Veteran guard Alex Boone, who sustained a slight pectoral strain in Arizona's loss to the Dallas Cowboys on September 25, is expected to return and play through the injury without having surgery. That is what it is. That sent Robbie Gould onto the field for his fifth field goal and a brief 49ers lead.
"He has always been a challenge because he's a big back, but he's got really light feet and can jump cut", Arians said.
Blaine Gabbert Quarterback Blaine Gabbert was the 49ers' starter for the team's first five games last season after winning an offseason competition against Colin Kaepernick.
Larry Fitzgerald's 19-yard touchdown reception won it in overtime for the Cardinals, a contest that saw nine made field goals.
Left tackle D.J. Humphries (knee) and left guard Mike Iupati (triceps) are both expected to play after missing the past two games, as is speedy wide receiver John Brown (triceps). A review upheld the incomplete call.
