Some quick thoughts as the Cards have a 24-10 halftime lead and will get the opening kickoff of the second half of their Wild Card playoff game:
– The Packers’ defense doesn’t know how to stop the Cards. If Larry Fitzgerald doesn’t fumble, the Cards have at least another three points right now.
– Turnovers, as expected, have been huge. LB Karlos Dansby was the reason the Cards got those first two turnovers to build their lead.
– DE Calais Campbell isn’t playing much because of his bad thumb, but both Alan Branch and Gabe Watson have been solid. And Bertrand Berry came off his week of “rest” with two sacks thus far.
– I’m not going to overstate it, but Early Doucet has looked good as Anquan Boldin Jr.
– CB Michael Adams is going to be kicking himself. He should have sacked Aaron Rodgers on a 44-yard bomb to Jermichael Finley, but for some reason Adams leaped high in the air and Rodgers easily ducked out of the way. If Adams just drives through Rodgers’ back, the Packers don’t get their last field goal.
