Friend of the program, Enigma, breaks down the Good, the Bad and the Ugly for this weeks matchup between the 49ers and Cardinals.
Arizona lost starters DE Darnell Dockett (IR) and LB Daryl Washington (suspension) for the season. Dockett’s backup, Frostee Rucker, is questionable for Sunday’s game.
QB Carson Palmer is also questionable — having missed Arizona’s previous game with a…
It appears as if the 49ers dodged yet another injury bullet.
Vernon Davis left Sunday’s game on crutches and had an MRI on Monday to determine how serious his ankle injury was. Matt Maiocco is reporting that Davis avoided a serious ankle injury and that he could return to the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals.
According to a source the MRI revealed that the injury is a deep bruise and there is…
The 49ers have signed TE Xavier Grimble and DB Leon McFadden to their practice squad. To make room for the two the 49ers released LB Shane Skov and DB Chance Casey.
Grimble signing makes it two tight ends on the practice squad, Asante Cleveland being the other. With Vernon Davis leaving the game Sunday on crutches and Vance McDonald banged up as well, it’s no surprise the 49ers are making sure…
For those wanting to relive the embarrassment after the loss to the Bears here is the transcript from Harbaugh’s press conference:

Newsflash, if you didn’t get to watch the 49ers/Bears game tonight, the 49ers played liked shit.
From the first series the 49ers controlled this game, blocked a punt and Kapernick threw a touchdown to Crabtree. After that it was all down hill. The offense never got in a good rhythm. Sure they completed passes here and there, but when they got into Bears territory Kaepernick turned the ball over.
The 49ers have released running back LaMichael James today per his request.
James’ agent Jeff Sperbeck said that LaMichael asked for his release and the 49ers granted it.

All offseason we had to hear sports media talk about how the 49ers defense will struggle, due to losses of Aldon Smith, NaVorro Bowman and starting 2-2 new defensive backs.
Well after this game they held their own. They intercepted Tony Romo three times and recovered a fumble for a touchdown. In fact they held Romo under 300 yards and Dez Bryant had only 4 receptions for 55 yards. Of course I…
