Rookies Make Up for Being "Bad" Boys

It was just 10 days ago that both Jenkins and Givens found themselves being taught a lesson by Fisher when they broke team rules. Instead of letting the talented rookies play against the 49ers, Fisher opted to make an example of them and deactivated both of them for this very important game.

Seems the two rookies took the lesson to heart because did they ever shine in their game against the Cardinals in Arizona.

Not only did these two rookies contribute to the game in Arizona, they were actually major difference makers in the outcome of the game. Without their excellent efforts, this game could have easily gone in the Cardinals favor without a doubt.

Fisher wanted to make sure that both these young, rising stars knew very well that being able to play in the NFL is not a given but instead that it is a privilege that must be earned.

They seemed to have learned their lesson and are looking forward to getting a shot at playing the 49ers when they come to St. Louis this week. Let's hope these kids can really give it to the "Whiners" and send them home limping and licking a few wounds.

Amendola is the Man

The three games that Danny missed, the Rams lost. With his return everyone hoped that it would mean a possible win.

Well, it could have and should have been a win because Danny Amendola did everything in his power to make it happen and then some. In fact you really couldn't ask for more from any single individual on a team.

Danny proved to the team, to the 49ers and to the entire NFL that he is a force to be dealt with and to be respected. Amendola may be considered a slot receiver, but the 49er game proved that he is far more than just an ordinary slot receiver. He is the star receiver of this offense and if anyone ever had any doubts prior, he should have wiped all those doubts away with his performance against the 49ers!

This game could have been a career game for him had others around him not screwed up at the most important times in the game as well as in OT. Here is a guy that did more than play his heart out but gave the team every opportunity in the world to wind the damn thing as well.

If this team wants to keep the good players that they do have on this team, then Fisher is going to have to find some way to get this team from committing so many detrimental penalties, because it won't be long before those who do it all right, may be wanting off this team.

But let's hope that's not the case with Danny, because this team needs him plain and simple.
