QB Hall passes tests, cleared to practice

Posted by Darren Urban on October 26, 2010 – 4:06 pm

Quarterback Max Hall passed his concussion tests today, meaning he has been cleared to practice Wednesday.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt already said Hall was the starter when healthy and assuming Hall responds OK he will face Tampa Bay Sunday. Given Hall’s struggles last weekend, the rookie needs all the practice time he can get.

No word on the other injured players. Linebacker Clark Haggans was the biggest concern after hurting his groin, both with how he limped off and the depth at his spot. Nose tackle Dan Williams also hurt his groin in the game.

    Did 91 get a fine, a warning, anything? I mean after all of the hype last week I haven’t heard it even mentioned outside of AZ. They were threatening suspensions and 91 definitely left his feet and launched into Max’s helmet . He also shoved an official after TH’s fumble. Selective enforcement for high profile teams, yea that will really solve the problem.

    What worked between Kurt and Larry was that Larry used to run, then stop and get the pass from Kurt. I do not see this routine being followed in this season. Wonder why? That worked in deceiving the other team.

    Yeah When I saw 91 put his hands on the official in an aggressive manner I was really surprised the ref didn’t do anything especially after Rhodes was ejected in ATL.

    Darren, How high are the Cards on Skelton?? I understand Max picked up the playbook a little quicker??

    I just would think u would have Skelton as the backup?? over DA?
    if the Cards are looking to the future an its not DA? please i hope not?

    It couldnt hurt right?? going into week 8 he should have some idea of the Playbook an what we are doing on the Field right?? p.s maybe let him stand next to the Whiz?
    like Hall used too chomping at the bit!

    Thanks Darren for the work u do for us enjoy all of your reporting! Go Bigred!

    I suppose that is good news,mostly because Anderson is the back-up and him having to start would definitely be bad news.In all my years watching football I don’t recall ever seeing a QB as inaccurate as Anderson and I don’t know why he can’t get it through his head that on a 5-7 yard check down that you don’t have to throw the football like a baseball picture trying to strike out a batter,even the few that are on target are thrown so hard they are nearly impossible for anyone to catch

    Max Hall will be our QB. He has the best chemistry with Fitz (arguably the most explosive WRs in the league) and that’s enough to name him our starter throughout the season. Although an overwhelming amount of factors in Seattle diminished Max Hall’s progress, It’s behind us now and you won’t get in such bad circumstances than that game. Our O-line is going to progress whether they like it or not. (Whiz will make sure of it) ALL our WRs will eventually be at 100% and you don’t even have to worry about our D, it’s on it’s way to becoming better than last years.
    This Halloween, Defense will continue to make huge plays and show us it’s no fluke, our offense won’t be as great but will be enough not only to win the game but to prove that Arizona still has the best chance of winning the division if the offense continues to progress. Believe it!

    Were is Matt Lienart when the Cardinals need him. Love ya Max but still your a rookie making rookie mistakes. This team needs a QB that studied behind a Hall of Fame QB and took notes from him, kind of like Steve Young and Aaron Rodgers did. Oh well guess we call it a rebuilding season and get Max ready for the future, quote me on this “Max Hall is going to be and awesome QB in the NFL he just needs the development like Sam Bradford”

    Ken- I agree with you Hall will improve. UOP will certainly be friendlier and I am pretty sure Hall can’t have had much experience playing in the rain given his background. I for one am not ready to throw in the towel just yet. Despite the high hopes at the start of the season this is still a team in transition. 3-3 therefore is not a bad record and Sunday at home is a very winnable game if we just protect the ball..

    Hall passed his concussion test, but with the photo above, I wonder if he passed a facemask as well.
    Another poster wondered how Anderson could be so erratic.
    I have an idea. Plant a BALL boy behind the goal posts and Derek will hit paydirt 100 outta 100 times. Saw it in Training Camp.

    Big Red – I am definitely not negative on Skelton, but Darren as advised all of us on numerous occasions that he still has a considerable way to go in his development before he will be ready to play at the NFL level. So it would seem that, for at least the remainder of this year, the back-up QB will be DA.

    Good Morning Darren,
    Max Hall has got to get out of the pocket more and not be scared to tuck it AND run for a few yards. These rookie growing pains are a bitter pill to swallow. But we’ve seen them throughout the league over the years, it’s just our turn.
    Lets hope we see improvement each week. You said from the day Max was announced the starter to temper our excitement, YOU WERE RIGHT AGAIN!

    Just a thought, but my strongest image of Hall at QB last Sunday was one of a short guy trying to throw out of a man-hole.

    He seems to struggle finding open passing lanes (Even when he scrambles to create those lanes, it’s a 50-50 proposition he’ll turn the wrong way and get crushed).

    Would it make sense for most of his passing plays to be designed roll-outs so that he doesn’t improvise himself into a turnover (or, even worse, the hospital)?

    Hey guys, let’s not make conclusions on Max Hall until he had a few starts under his belt! I saw a guy against NO that kept the offense on the field and made good decisions. Obviously he did not play well in Seattle. It is 1 game. Let’s see how he fares against a good Tampa team (best in NFC?) at home. Then another tough match up against Minnesota, albeit in a dome which I think will help.

    I’m not seeing where all this so called chemistry with Fitz is coming from. How many TD’s has this Hall & Fitz chemistry produced? Forgive me if I continue to refuse to hitch my horse to the Hall wagon, his so called “it” factor hasn’t materialized yet.

  27. By Christopher Freeman on Oct 27, 2010 | Reply

    you also need to look at the fact hall has not had a full healthy roster , and the WR after Larry are rookies for the most part. he was only able to play with doucet for one week so far, there is no real “gel” between any other players besides hall and Fitz. once breaston returns that should really allow max to take full advantage of the offence. Both Anderson and Hall during the year found it easier to get the ball to breaston in the slant rather than a williams or fitzgerald.

    Listen to game on radio driving across tenn and what scares me the most is the announcers who were not bias said that Hall could not make the throws in the NFL and for this reason was horrible and that there is a reason 32 teams pass on a QB 7 times each.

    Change of subject – Pro Bowl voting. Being honest about their play which of our players would you feel are worthy of playing in the pro bowl?

    RE: Pro Bowl

    I’d like to get to midseason first. But you probably have a decent starting point there.

  33. By 98CardsFan on Oct 27, 2010 | Reply

    I vote a no confidence in the coaching staff’s ability to develop a quarterback. They had an out in Warner. ML had a very decent rookie season but got injured. Whiz inhereited this 2nd year player coming off of injury and threw new terminology at him to see what he could handle and as a credo to the people up stairs went with him as a starter. He did ok, but they did not run well enough, his so called philosophy, and Warner got his chance in their no-huddle package. He chose what plays he liked to run and executed them very well. ML got hurt again and was on the back burner as the Cards changed their philosophy to the wide open air attack. Year 3 it was an open competition running Warner’s/Haley’s system and they said it was a close competition. Who knows really, Oakland game decided it. Super bowl run. Year 4 ML was a teammate knowing who the starter was and got a chance to win a game vs the Titans. 99yd TD drive later didn’t get him a win. As a fan you have to wonder, if he had won that game where would we be this year? All I know is the QB situation has to drive you nuts. Personally I don’t see an answer on this roster, mabye not even down the road. But I wanted to thank Mr. Warner for his hard work in taking this team to heights quite frankly may never be reached again. It IS a rebulding year but lets make it as good as possible eh?

    Who care who starts…really. Does it make a difference when you are last in the league in total O. QB talk is just a way to keep ppl busy. A way to keep everyone from the real issues. This is not a simple case of the usual suspects, this is different…is this a Ponzi scheme and Whisenhunt is the Madoff.

    [A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investment operation that pays returns to separate investors from their own money or money paid by subsequent investors, rather than from any actual profit earned. The Ponzi scheme usually entices new investors by offering returns other investments cannot guarantee, in the form of short-term returns that are either abnormally high or unusually consistent. The perpetuation of the returns that a Ponzi scheme advertises and pays requires an ever-increasing flow of money from investors to keep the scheme going.]

    How are we last is the passing game with one of the best WR playing today. How are we so horrible throwing the ball that it makes us dead last in TOTAL OFFENSE. The Cards must really that pride in what they are doing because it takes effort to achieve an accomplishment of being last in anything.

    How good is Fitz? Is he the superstar we thought he was? Without a Kurt or Anquan Boldin is he just regular. What is the make-up of a superstar? Teams have bad year not superstar…they still get their’s.

    Anquan Boldin had 101 rec., 1377 rec yds and 8 TDs with Jeff Blake and Josh McCown. Like Andre Roberts he was a third round pick too but unlike Roberts Q proved he was PLAYMAKER as early as his rookie year without any help….hummm (hint hint Fitz) Oh, chew on this for awhile, Fitz and Breaston combined won’t equal Boldin’s 2003 rookie season total rec. yds. 1377.

    Has there been any chatter in the Cardinals locker room or front office second guessing Coach Whisenhunt’s decision to part with QB Matt Leinart? By not allowing Matt a chance to succeed here, there will always be room to speculate “What if?”, and I’m sure that has crossed the minds of several players and employees once or twice. i”m just curious if it’s resurfaced after all the QB problems.

    Let me quote…Even after Hall’s troubles in Seattle Whisenhunt said Hall was “ahead of the curve, in my opinion, as a rookie quarterback in a number of things.”

    What is the “curve” based on? Let’s look at two rookies playing this year…Of course there’s Sam Bradford who is SOOOOO much better than Max Hall and now we even have COLT McCOY who looks MILES AHEAD of Max Hall. I really don’t think the Cards Coach gets it. These fans who keep making excuses for Max Hall sound ridiculous and they quickly forget how terrible Max Hall looked in the NO game just like they already forgot how the Oakland game was won.

    “He (Cards Coach) acknowledged the offense might be cut back a bit to make things a little easier for Hall going forward.”
    If the Cards Coach can do that for Max Hall then put in John Skelton for God’s sake. I don’t card about practice, OTA’s, summer camp, it’s game time, produce or sit down already!!!

    Darren, to follow up from my previous question, let’s play devil’s advocate and say the Cardinals end the season third in the NFC West, at 6-10. Let’s say Hall doesn’t materialize at the quarterback position, and we’re running around all off season looking for a QB. Would Whisenhunt start next season on the hot seat? Could botching the quarterback position, arguably the most important position in all of football, be enough to start the internal discussion about Coach Whisenhunt, and his ability to evaluate players? Please remember, too, that Whisenhunt took Dennis Green’s assembled team to the Super Bowl, and three years in, now has “his players”.

    Hey Darren–Do you see any evidence that Fitz might be getting frustrated over not catching the number of balls he is used to??? I do believe Whiz wants to run the ball more given he has a young QB but he also wants to get Larry some catches early in these games. I’m wondering if that is causing a conflict with Whiz’s play calling??? Trying to force the ball to Larry as opposed to developing the run game??

    Then hopefully all the Whisenhaters will shut up! (good coaches are just a hard to find as good quaterbacks).
    It could be a lot worse like say the niners, cowboys, vikings, etc. This team is 3-3 and still has a decent shot a the playoffs. I trade stats for results any day.

    Apparently most of the people here would not be satisfied unless the Cards went 16-0, and they all have short term memory loss. Two time defending NFC West Champs. Trust the coach that got us that and a Super Bowl trip. I really don’t think or consider most of the bashers fans. Perhaps they jumped on the band wagon during the Super Bowl run, who knows.

    I am appreciative of the product even if the start to the season is a little shaky on offense. Talent is there in a lot of places. Go bash what ever team you were rooting for previoously. And get a dictionary!

    BASH_Illinois….Turn your cap locks OFF, it’s rude and makes you look like an idiot. Go root for the Bears.

    Dre….if Fitz were on any other team, he’d be their #1 receiver. That’s got to get superstar status.

    When you have poor quarterback play, you have a bad offense. It is absolutely embarrassing that this organization — from which I’ve purchased season tickets for a decade — won’t pony up the prorated league minimum to bring in a veteran to win this division.

    This team will not win the division next year, after Sam Bradford gets a year of experience under him. It’s up for grabs this year because everybody stinks. If Seattle wins this division, it will make Carroll and the fans’ heads so big they won’t all be able to fit in their stadium.

    So I say to this organization, out of respect to those Seattle fans who no longer will be able to fit in their stadium, let’s be proactive in season for once. Let’s go get Jeff Garcia. He wants to come back to the NFL, and all he’ll do here is win a division and allow you to host a playoff game (the profits from which will more than pay for Garcia’s paltry salary the rest of the year).

    Because your momentum is fizzling fast. And a quarterback that can’t grip a football, even if he is from Mesa, won’t get you out of it. Steal the division crown this year, and you’ll still have some of it.

    Fanimal–

    As someone who HAS tickets to the game this weekend and will be there cheering on the team, yet still capable of perspective, I have to ask…

    What has this team done to warrant any interest in ponying up for tickets? This town has already made clear that sellout streaks don’t matter. Good play does. And we’re not seeing it.

    Someone above made a great point — how do we have the best receiver in football yet the worst offense. He neglected to mention we also have the most talented RB in college football two years ago, a 9-year all pro guard, a top 5 first round LT, the active sacks leader, a perinneial all pro strong safety, the most athletically gifted corner in the league, and the best punter.

    Yet our team stinks. Is it Whiz? No — he’s a smart head coach that has done a great job with what he has. The problem is what he doesn’t have — a quarterback. And again, I’ll let my earlier post tell that story.

    Agree with Darren — Whiz should not be anywhere near the hot seat. Graves, maybe, but only long enough so that his nards can drop, allowing him to locate them once again and build up the courage to walk into Mr. B’s office and tell him why we need to sign a quarterback…

    I’m only throwing out hypotheticals. The way this team has played, we aren’t winning the division. The Cardinals now have their own stadium, and reap the benefits of the revenue generated from it. I don’t think the Bidwells would sit by, and allow the fan base to leave again, because of the money tied to the stadium. And if we pile together two losing seasons, I could see fans abandoning the team. What I’m asking is, imagine we finish third in the division, 6-10. Hall doesn’t pan out. Whiz’s personnel moves and other decisions are being questioned. Is the seat warmer for Whiz next year? I’m not trying to ignite a coach debate, I’m just wondering if the season burns up in flames, where will we be next year. I think Whiz will use up all his goodwill he’s earned if Hall doesn’t work out. Not to mention all his questionable personnel moves. Like I said above, he led Dennis Green’s team to the Super Bowl, not his own. Now he has his own picks in place, and well, not many are panning out.

    LOL @ Darren and Voice. Seriously though, I was only referring to Denny in terms of the teams put together during his tenure. All in all, the team built during his stay wasn’t too shabby. His coaching ability was, well, “who we thought” he was, and thankfully, we “let him off the hook!” Seriously thought, all I’m saying is, after this year, Whisenhunt is one more year removed from his Super Bowl appearance. He’s now without Kurt Warner. A year ago, no one was questioning his decisions. Now some of us are. And I’d bet many more will this off season, especially if Hall doesn’t work out. Whiz sold the fan base on Hall over Leinart. The local boy over the Playboy. Whether he realizes it or not, I think his future is partially tied to how Max performs the rest of the season.

    We are home and given Halloween night– the crowd should be juiced. It is an important home NFC game. If we can be 4-4 at the midway break – we are in good shape. Given 5 of our last 8 at home –not a bad deal. If we are to struggle let it happen early in the season. We will be a different football team at the end of the year and a dangerous one. Once our 3 receivers are healthy and playing –Hall has to improve.

I pack up my family every spring and spend the first week of training camp in Flagstaff with the Cardinals. I haven’t missed a game in three years, and although I moved here to attend college, I moved from a state that had no pro team and immediately adopted the Cards (while they were still playing at Sun Devil Stadium). Maybe you should read over the conversion between Dareen, Voice and myself one more time. None of us were bashing the Cardinals. We were only discussing a scenario that has a high chance of becoming reality. If not, I apologize for not drinking the Kool-Aid, and spouting off “In Whiz We Trust.” LOL.

    We’ll miss Q & Jahstone–

    Re: Q

    Well that changes everything, don’t it?

    Darren–

    What did Max Hall show in preseason that he didn’t show in college?

    What is the SOP for FA rookies trying out for a NFL team? Are they extended an invitation and the choice is left to the player?

    If you have 4 QBs in preseason and all 4 have concerns, why wouldn’t you cut the UNDRAFTED QB who was less likely to be picked up by another team and could have been signed to the practice squad.

    RE: Rules

    No rule. I just don’t like it. Maybe that’s me being bossy, but I get to run the show … ;)

    And I have no problem with debates. Just keep it above board.

    RE: Hall preseason

    The Cards felt if they exposed him to waivers another team was likely to claim him.

    As for FA rookies, yes, they choose. That’s why a lot of players prefer to go undrafted rather than be taken in the 6th or 7th round.

    I’m not a scout, so I couldn’t answer the first question. You could ask the same thing of Stephen Williams, who was also undrafted.

    @ Bish – unless you were a fan before Jim Hart ever took a snap for the Cardinals, you lose. Not sure how old you are, how long you’ve been a fan, or could really care less, but the fact of the matter is it is a pretty safe bet that I am un the upper 5 percentile in age commenting on this blog. And I have never rooted for another team in 40 years so……apology accepted. Secondly, my career prevents me from getting in a fight unless it is in the line of duty……I like my chances but the point is moot……and finally, thanks for turning off your caps lock.

    To Nick Pepe Hello fellow 40 year plus fan. I became a big red fan when Charlie Johnson was qb. Who do you think was our worst draft pick ,Johnnie Dr.Doom Barefield,Dunkan or Pizarkiewicz? I am glad that GeorgeBoone is not in the draft room now.

    To Darren You are a WRITER ,not a FIGHTER, and I will add that you are very good at your profession.

    My goodness — just think. All we need to do is sign a quarterback and peace on these boards will return. No incoherent threats (?), no all caps rants. Just kumbaya about winning another division.

    So for everyone. Larry Fitzgerald, the organization, the fans, the jersey vendors, the banner manufacturers — sign Jeff Garcia so we can win this division!!!

    Nick. Just wanted to nail down the timeline. You have been a Cardinal fan for 40 + years and you are a cop or security guard who cant get in an off duty fight, right? And you are in the top 5% of age of people commenting on this board? I will take the bet with Bish against the 60+ year old security guard…just saying.

    Back to football. Does anyone believe Ron Jaworski that Fitz will walk when his contract is up if the QB situation doesn’t get fixed quick?

    @ hebrew: I have to go with Eric Swann
    @ jiggaz, 40 something is correct, although some mornings I feel 60. And yes, I am in law enforcement and a nice cushy security gig would be perfect upon my retirement.
