Rant and Rise: San Francisco 49ers Win, Amar’e Stoudemire Out Six Weeks, NFL Pushes Back Trade Deadline
In a battle between two of the league’s top defenses, the 49ers managed to come out on top against the Cardinals on Monday night–mainly because Alex Smith and the offense stepped it up.
Smith set an NFL record for completion percentage (94.7) after completing 18 of 19 passes for 232 yards and three touchdowns in San Francisco’s 24-3 win over Arizona. For a quarterback that has received plenty of criticism throughout the 2012 season, this win was a huge statement for Smith that he has what it takes to lead this team to another NFC West title and hopefully the Super Bowl.
Amar’e Stoudemire Out at Least Six Weeks
Expectations are high for the New York Knicks heading into the 2012-13 season after reaching the playoffs last year, but it looks like they’ll have to start the year without one of their star players in Stoudemire.
After suffering a knee injury against the Toronto Raptors on October 19, Stoudemire is expected to miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season–which is the last thing the Knicks need to be dealing with. Stoudemire has experienced his fair-share of knee problems in the past–so let’s hope he can recover from this latest one without any complications.
NFL Pushes Back Trade Deadline
With Hurricane Sandy knocking out most of the east coast, the NFL pushed back Tuesday’s trade deadline to Thursday as the league’s front office closed for Monday and Tuesday. Whether or not any teams take advantage of the extended period of time to make moves is a different story, but the most important factor in this situation is the safety of everyone on the east coast.
