egant tank’ The San Francisco 49ers dropped an ugly loss in Week 5 and the previously winless Arizona Cardinals are now 1-4. The 49ers dropped to 1-4 http://www.49erslockerroom.com/authentic-matt-breida-jersey , losing by a final score of 28-12. And drop really is the key phrase given how badly the 49ers receivers looked trying to catch the ball.This was a decidedly ugly game, and win or lose, it was going to tell us something about the 49ers. They are just not a good football team right now. They can make things happen, and can do some very impressive things, but more often than not they are screwing up. It is either bad tackling, or dropped passes, or penalties, or some shaky play-calling, or otherwise poor execution.C.J. Beathard’s performance was a mix of everything on Sunday. He made some big plays, but he was twice stripped of the ball. His pocket awareness is not so good, and it is leading to bad things. At the same time, when he was executing on his throws, he was not helped by his receivers. They regularly dropped big passes that cost the team chances to convert and move down the field. Drops and three lost turnovers put the 49ers in a bad position most of the day.You know it was a bad day when Robbie Gould had a rough outing. The 49ers scored a touchdown on their opening drive and Gould missed a field goal. The hold looked OK, but something wasn’t right and Gould didn’t attempt to kick. Later in the game, trailing 14-6, Gould missed a 45-yard attempt. Who knows what happens late in the game if those four points are converted Joe Staley Jersey , but things finish a little different.That being said, even with a win this was a statement as to the 49ers problems. The Cardinals entered the game as the last remaining winless team. Their defense was pretty solid coming in, and Josh Rosen is an upgrade over Sam Bradford, but they are still not a particularly good team. They showed it in this game, with the 49ers out-gaining them by a sizable margin. And yet, the 49ers were trailing most of the day and never seemed like they were getting enough done.It was also a rough day on the injury report. They didn’t lose nearly as many players as they have the past few weeks, but there was a big one. Running back Matt Breida suffered an ankle injury in the second quarter. He left to get his ankles taped, but then was sent to the locker room. He was ruled out early in the third quarter. His status for Week 6 is up in the air.Up Next: @ Green Bay Packers, Monday Night FootballThe 49ers have their first prime time game of the season when they travel to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers. The Packers lost 31-23 to the Detroit Lions in a game they trailed nearly wire-to-wire. They pushed back with a pair of third quarter scores, but the defense couldn’t get a needed stop early in the fourth quarter. The story of the game was Mason Crosby missing four field goals and an extra point on the day. Green Bay dropped to 2-2-1 with the loss. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Rookie head coach Mike Vrabel has no time to imagine how much better his struggling Tennessee offense might be if only three-time Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker hadn’t broken his ankle in the Titans’ season opener.Next man up is a necessity as much as a cliche in the NFL.“You have to adjust,” Vrabel said of losing the tight end with the most receptions in the NFL between 2013 and 2017. “I think the one thing about winners is that they’re flexible and they’re able to adapt, among other things. We have to continue to move forward with the guys that we have.”Marcus Mariota lost his favorite target, and the Titans are scraping along with the league’s 30th best passing offense after winning a playoff game last January.“It’s asked a lot of the young guys to step up,” Mariota said.Halfway through the NFL season, lots of stars Malcolm Smith Jersey , starters and key role players are sidelined by injuries with nobody topping the emotional departure of Seattle safety Earl Thomas after breaking his leg the same day Cincinnati tight end Tyler Eifert had his own gruesome leg injury. It’s making a big impact on the standings.OH NO, JIMMY GTrying to pick up an extra yard Sept. 23 cost San Francisco its quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, for the rest of this season with a torn left ACL when his leg buckled in the fourth quarter of a loss to Kansas City. That left the 49ers only three 2018 games with the man they signed to a $137.5 million, five-year contract after watching Garoppolo win five straight to wrap up last season.Garoppolo’s injury came three weeks after 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon tore his own ACL for a team that had all five offensive linemen hurt knees in a game.Now San Francisco’s playoff drought is assured of reaching a fifth straight season with the painful lesson for Garoppolo that a team needs its quarterback to be available.“That’s something that Jimmy will probably look at differently going forward because now he’ll remember this the rest of his life,” 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said. “Nothing against him. This happens with everyone. You see it every Sunday. It’s a reminder for everyone why it’s an obvious coaching point.”SO MANY ACLSWhen Texans receiver Will Fuller tore his ACL, he joined a list that includes Jaguars receiver Marqise Lee , who didn’t even make it to the regular season; Eagles running back Jay Ajayi; and Miami defensive end William Hayes, who tore his trying to avoid a roughing-the-passer penalty. Unfortunately, Hayes’ foot caught in the ground as he tried to keep his weight off Derek Carr during a sack.MISSING ON DEFENSEDerek Barnett recovered Tom Brady’s fumble to clinch the Eagles’ Super Bowl victory in February, but season-ending shoulder surgery has sidelined Philadelphia’s young defensive star. Green Bay lost defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson to an ankle injury.WAITING FOR BOSADefensive end Joey Bosa has not played a snap this season for the Chargers because of a bone bruise in his left foot, an injury that happened Aug. 7 during training camp. Bosa, the 2016 Defensive Rookie of the Year, tried to get back for the regular season, then reinjured his foot Sept. 5 and has been sidelined since.The Chargers hoped he might be back after their bye, but Bosa says he’s still facing a week-to-week situation Kentavius Street Jersey White , while people keep asking him when he’ll be ready. Being 6-2 has allowed the Chargers to stay patient and avoid rushing him back again after what happened in September.“The second my foot is ready to practice on a Wednesday I will play that week,” Bosa said.MISSING COOKMISSING COOKLuckily, the Minnesota Vikings still had Latavius Murray while they waited for the return of running back Dalvin Cook . He played three of the first four games this season after reconstructive surgery on his left knee ended his rookie season, then sat out because of a hamstring injury until returning Sunday in a win over Detroit.That’s not the only issue for Minnesota, which is second in the NFC North after playing in the NFC championship last January. Rookie cornerback Mike Hughes , the 30th pick overall last April out of UCF, tore up his left knee in October.BATTERED FALCONSAtlanta has simply been decimated across the board in a season that started with hopes the Falcons might be the first team to play the Super Bowl on their own field. Both starting safeties and both starting guards are out for the season, top running back Devonta Freeman (groin) is on injured reserve and can’t return until December. Even kicker Matt Bryant has been hurt.That leaves Matt Ryan trying to carry the Falcons (4-4).ANOTHER TANNEHILL INJURYRyan Tannehill has missed four straight games with an injured shoulder, the latest problem for the Miami quarterback who missed all of the 2017 season after tearing an ACL in training camp. That was the same knee that kept him out of the final four games of 2016. Tannehill hurt his throwing shoulder in Week 5 and is trying to work his way back to the field. Luckily for the Dolphins, Brock Osweiler is 2-2 as a fill-in — even with starting left guard Josh Sitton and center Daniel Kilgore both out for the season.DISEASE NOT INJURYFour-time Pro Bowl center Travis Frederick is off the Dallas roster as he deals with an auto-immune disease, Guillain-Barre syndrome, which attacks nerves and leads to weakness in parts of the body. He has no idea when his football career will resume after dealing with numbness in both feet and hands and one arm. “I was very relieved to finally have an idea of what it was,” Frederick said.POSSIBLE RETURNSRams cornerback Aqib Talib is out at least until Thanksgiving after being placed on injured reserve after needing surgery on an ankle early this season, while the Raiders are in the same situation after putting running back Marshawn Lynch on IR last month after surgery to repair an injured groin.AND THEY KEEP COMINGDenver lost center Matt Paradis to a broken right leg when his own quarterback rolled up on him in the Broncos’ 19-17 loss to Houston on Sunday. The 49ers lost running back Raheem Mostert to a broken arm and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley to season-ending shoulder surgery in San Francisco’s win Thursday night.
