Getting "shredded" is an overstatement when a QB has to throw it 50 times to get to 400+. Peyton going for 266 and 4 tds on 26 passes or Brees going for 381 on 30 passes is shredding. The defense only gave up 7 points in the first half and when you consider the fact the run game was s**t we didn't provide anything in terms of clock control and keeping them of the field.
Palmer missed wide open receivers a handful of times. If he'd completed those it could have been a different game. Can't expect Rodgers to do the same.
I'm not going to sit here and deny the fact that the 49ers secondary has not looked great the last 2 games. Is it the lack of pass rush? Is it the play calling when we're ahead? Not sure.
Aside from Carolina and Seattle there is no team in the playoffs right now that compares to Arizona's D. So other than the vanilla play calling after the 17-0 lead it's hard for me to jump all over the offense. I thought they did pretty well considering.
