SANTA CLARA — This is the live blog for the pregame of the 49ers’ irrelevant Week 17 game against the Cardinals. I will update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box.
11:59 Wildcard candidate to replace Jim Harbaugh as the 49ers’ head coach: Jim Mora Jr.
He has been a successful head coach. He has worked for the Yorks before (2000-2002). And his name is Jim.
12:01 The 49ers’ inactives are Eric Reid, Perrish Cox, Tramaine Brock, Ahmad Brooks, Carlos Hyde, Stevie Johnson and Josh Johnson. Dontae Johnson will start in place of Cox at left cornerback. Joe Looney will start in place of Alex Boone at right guard. Aaron Lynch or Dan Skuta will start in place of Ahmad Brooks and the great Craig Dahl will start in place of Eric Reid.
12:03 The Cardinals’ inactives are Drew Stanton, Brittan Golden, Chris Clemons, Larry Foote, Jonathan Cooper, Anthony Steen and Kareem Martin. Ryan Lindley will start in place of Drew Stanton and Glenn Carson will start in place of Larry Foote.
12:29 In the first round of the 2015 draft, Trent Baalke clearly must draft a vertical threat who is a future No.1 wide receiver. Which receiver should Baalke draft?
