The 49ers might be just getting started under interim coach Mike Singletary, but they appear finished after losing at home in embarrassing fashion.

The team is running out of options after firing coach Mike Nolan during the week and benching quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan during the game Sunday.

Perhaps quarterback Shaun Hill can deliver more fundamentally sound play to an offense that badly needs to cut down on turnovers.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks' search for viable receivers took them to an unlikely place: Their backfield. Fullback Leonard Weaver caught four passes for 116 yards and two touchdowns. His big plays, plus an interception return for a touchdown from cornerback Josh Wilson, compensated for a running game that went nowhere.

The Seahawks remain only two games behind division leader Arizona, but the Cardinals are playing at another level entirely.
