San Francisco 49ers: 3 Takeaways vs

The 49ers - once again - came close to winning their first game of the season.

Recent polls have shown most of those surveyed somewhat or strongly disapprove of the take-a-knee protests.

But that's who the 49ers are this year. This shouldn't be too hard against Arizona's beat-up offensive line. They're a team that makes really dumb, costly mistakes.

"We had opportunities there to win the game on both sides of the ball a number of times throughout the game and we didn't get it done", 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said. The final kick tied the game in regulation.

Unfortunately, this means they're also a team that just isn't fun to watch. "We just got to clean, get better and better". As such, I took the 49ers at +6.5 in the SuperContest. Because I'm not at all invested in who they are now, but rather who they could be a few years from now. That could finally arrive in a winnable matchup with the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5, but here we look at the takeaways from a disheartening day for a team whose efforts are not being reflected by their record.

Still, I do feel bad for the players. The problem is, one of them figures to be headed back to the drawing board wondering if there's enough time to turn things around after the teams meet Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium. A lot of situations that is going on right now in our country is trying to cause division. "We've run, probably, too many RPOs (run-pass options) down there and didn't execute them properly or didn't make the catch or the throw, like the fourth-and-1 in Indy".

Arizona's offensive line struggled mightily last week, when the Cowboys sacked Palmer six times. There were a couple of running plays that looked good but in the end they rushed for 51-yards. He has now made 28 straight field goal attempts. "And at first, I thought that was a small sacrifice to pay to get the word out, to raise that awareness".

"But we've got a plan in place to where we want him to start getting him reps and then, in time as we can get him incorporated back into team work and all that, we'll get him back on the field".

"Early Saturday, President Trump responded to the mayor with a series of tweets criticizing her leadership, even going so far as to say she was doing the Democrats" bidding by being "nasty to Trump." If the Cardinals can rush the ball with any effectiveness, it should open up the passing attack for Carson Palmer and his main trio of receivers, Larry Fitzgerald, J.J.

At Sunday's first game, in London, New Orleans Saints players, coaches and staff knelt before the start of the anthem but stood in unison once it began.

The San Francisco 49ers played on Thursday last week, before President Donald Trump lashed out at NFL players for not standing during the national anthem. And, you guys, let's not forget that the SECOND guy to join Kaepernick in his protest, Eric Reid, is still a very loved player on this team.

Several players who stood during the national anthem held their right fists in the air during the song.

Relying on their ferocious pass rush, San Francisco got into the Arizona backfield easily, laying blow after blow on Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer every chance they got. All 49ers players had their hands over their hearts during the anthem.

Despite its offense being unable to find the end zone for the entirety of the game, the 49ers defense was able to force the Cardinals into the same situation - until the last play of the game, that is. Bravo to the 49ers for that. The 49ers suffered a two-point loss to the Los Angeles Rams, but they remain winless after three games and will try to post their first win against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday (1:05 p.m. PT/4:05 p.m. ET, FOX, DirecTV).
