Playoffs????

Posted by Darren Urban on December 14, 2011 – 9:38 am

Let’s make this short and sweet. I became a writer in part because math was never my thing. The folks at sportsclubstats.com do the math, however, and their math says that — assuming the Cardinals finish the season winning their last three games to get to 9-7 — that they have a 36.1 percent chance to make the playoffs. They also say the most likely matchup if that happened would be a wild-card game in New Orleans.

Of course, that — again — means the Cards have to finish the regular season on a six-game winning streak just to have a slightly better than one-in-three opportunity. And it doesn’t matter, since I said I wasn’t talking such possibilities until the Cards got to .500 anyway. Right?

    Hey Darren–I agree with you! Have to take one game at a time. If the Card’s get the Brown’s game then you can start looking at some scenarios. The Card’s have their work cut out for them in these last 3 games–they have to win first then worry about all that other stuff. Things change in the NFL in a weekly fashion.

    You have to give it to coach that we are even talking about playoff’s now. I was a bit critical after going 1-6 but you can’t do anything but applaud the coaching staff for turning thing’s around. The cards actually look like a team you don’t want to have to play if they would make the playoff’s. That in its self should give the players and coaches some solace if we don’t make it and reason to be optimistic about next season.

    The cards need 3 victories + chicago loss with packers in week 16 + detroit loss with the raiders and loss to the packers (week 15 and 17).

    Thats all… and the cards are in

    The playoffs would be nice but even if we don’t make it 8-8 or 9-7 would be a great season after last year and the early part of this year. We are on the verge of much much better days. The secondary bears no resemblance to the early season, PP’s coverage has improved greatly, three young linebackers and an improved pass rush. We need to draft and sign FA’s to improve the O-line and straighten out the QB situation. Last year’s draft is proving to be a great one. Most of them have made fine contributions. I am very optimistic. Darren, what do the coaches say about Sturdivant? Is he showing enough that he might contribute next year?

    The most important things for this to happen are a) We win out b) Detroit lose on the road this week OR get upset at home next week c) GB and the Saints win their expected home games.

    Not much else matters. People out there don’t need to get caught up watching Atlanta, Dallas, Giants, etc. Not much else matters unless you think Chicago can go 3-0. Not likely.

    If the Saints get a bye, we would play San Fran again? Right. Now that would be fun.

    OK 36% chance getting in. Let’s take it slow. But a trip to SF, that would be huge.

    Can we go back and track how many bandwagon fans were calling for Whiz to get fired? And how many of those same “fans” are saying he is a genius now.

    We got dealt some pretty significant blows on the defensive secondary… and even with that, there were several games that we EASILY could have won while losing 6 out of our first 7 games. This team very easily could have been 8-5 right now. Horton’s schemes are working, Peterson gets better at PP every game, and the young linebackers are absolutely awesome. THIS IS AN EXCITING TEAM.

    However… I have always said, I and I still say… Our offensive line needs a lot of help, and I am not sure how you can’t hold Grimm responsible for that.

    GO CARDINALS! (and draft O-line!)

    Being optimistic, if Kolb sits out due to injury and we win the last 3 games with Skelton and make the playoffs and Kolb becomes heathy, would he be the qb in the playoffs.

    Darren, how is the team treating the game this week? I don’t want them losing focus after a big win against San Fran. I understand that they aren’t worried about the playoffs but I don’t want them to take Cleveland lightly. Do they seem focused?

    Seems to be a lot of misinformation, e.g., Grabling: the Cards need the Bears to lose twice (not just once) to be ahead of them, as the Bears will end with a 8-4 conference record to our 7-5 if we both end up 9-7. And, Robert, DAL and NYG do matter because at this point, if they both win their next two games, we MUST have NYG win the season-ending game vs. DAL — due to our losing to NYG but beating DAL, we get in over DAL but not NYG at 9-7. The way they’ve been playing we certainly have a good shot that one of them will lose in their next 2, but they’re both playing for their lives at this point so it’s hardly a given that it couldn’t end up 10-6 DAL, 9-7 NYG.

  22. By Kevin on Dec 14, 2011 | Reply

    Hate rooting for a div rival but we all need to be Seattle fans this week. Bears need to lose 2 and while the Packer game we can be fairly confident about, I don’t think they lose to MIN the last week of the season in a game that will mean nothing to MIN but could mean getting into the playoffs for CHI.

  23. By Kevin on Dec 14, 2011 | Reply

    Perhaps even more surprising is that the site gives PHI a 22.6% of getting in if they win their last 3; I assume that’s more based on winning the division at 8-8 than getting a WC at 8-8 which is pretty farfetched.

    For those who are writing “DRAFT tackles”, remember that Whiz probably won’t play rookies until about mid-season.

    So,……………Graves needs to sign two FREE AGENT tackles if the Cards are going to START THE YEAR with a good probability of making the playoffs unlike this season when the team has had to try to climb out of a very deep hole.

    Unfortuantely, we ( most likely ) played ourselves out of the playoff race by going 1-6 to start the season. Consequently, we could finish 9-7 and not make the playoffs. That said, bring it on! We got 3 games left, then we’ve got 3 chances left to feel good about a win! Playoffs or not, let’s be winners!

  31. By brad oneill on Dec 14, 2011 | Reply

    there is a 100% that if we go 9-7 the off season will be much happier. nothing we can do about the play-offs other than watch them this year knowing we were a few plays away.

    if by some miracle we manage to get in, any advance we make will be gravy over an undercooked season of grissle.

    i’ll root untll there is nothing left to root for and then i will start looking at what we do about not having a 2nd round draft pick. the trading this offseason is going to be really interesting with the new found cheapness of first rounders thanks to the cap, i see a lot of movement and some spectacular swaps going on. maybe not with us but it will be interesting none the less.

    i think the player we missed most this year was greg toler, lets hope he heals well and comes ready to play next year.

    i am really looking forward to seeing Rhodes back as well although he was filled in for admirably.

    Cardinals need to play some clean,
    consistent,
    mature,
    humbling, and
    disciplined football if they wanna make it 9-7. Make it to 9-7 and the rest is up to the league.

    Whiz is a genius??? REALLY??? If Kolb doesn’t get hurt ( turf toe ) and then concussed.. those wins with Skelton at the helm would never had happened..
    we would be hanging out with St. Louis about two wins..maybe three..Whiz did not have the vision to play Skelton… he HAD to!!! I posted here before.. Peytons rookie year… ( Look at the stats ) Eli’s rookie year.. ( look ) Now compare Skeltons first eight starts… see any difference??? 0-8.. 0-8…. 6-2. wonder what Skelton could be If he had a COACH that believed in him!!!!! But get used to it… If Kolb returns to his starting role… THREE AND OUT… LEAVE SKELTON IN… LET HIM TAKE HIS LUMPS NOW…. THIS COULD BE VERY SPECIAL IN A COUPLE OF YEARS… I HEAR THE CRIES ARISING… IN WHIZ WE TRUST… PLEASE… LETS SEE WHERE OUR DEFENSE TAKES US… BUT WHIZ IS NOT A GENIUS…

    judging someone off there first 8-10 starts is just complete idiocy. how many qbs have gone 6-2 in there first 8 starts and turned into nobodys… jake delhomme if thats how you spell it. how many qbs have started off horrible and turned into all stars. oh and btw skeltons last 2 games he started he played horrible and went 3 and out how many times? kolbs last start he played a bad first half and just killed it his second half you are being way to close minded right now. what happens when kolb turns out to be a no one and skelton turns out to be a no one you still going to be saying skelton is our guy?

    As a life-long Cardinal fan i never lose hope even when things are looking bad, and at 1-6 I still allowed myself to believe we could turn the season around. Miraculously it did thanks to three things, the first two are obvious, defense and the play of the incomparable larry fitzgerald, however the third has gone completely under the radar and I have no idea why. John Skelton deserves the right to finish what he started this year. His game fits the cardinals offense much better than Kolb’s, he is more athletic, taller, has a quicker release, a bigger arm and has appeared more poised in the pocket than Kolb ALL YEAR. I understand he makes mistakes, and they can be pretty ugly sometimes, but lets remember people, so did Kurt. I’m not saying Skelton is the future, but let Kolb’s injuries linger a bit longer and give Skelton this shot, if he comes up short, so be it.

    Since the Lincoln/ Kennedy blog went over so well last week, here’s some Six Degrees of Mora’s playoff rant:
    When Mora Sr. made the “playoff” comment, he was coming off a loss to the SF 49ers, whose DC was Jim Mora, Jr.,
    Whose team just defeated Indy and their star RB Edgerrin James,
    Who later played for, and performed poorly (costly fumble) for AZ in the Cards/Bears game that Dennis Green had his infamous “Crown their…” meltdown,
    Which, in part led to his firing and hiring of Whisenhunt,
    That signed Derek Anderson, who had a season high 322 yards against the Jim Mora Jr. Seahawks,
    And two games later had his “I take this serious!” tirade, after losing to the, yes, 49ers.

    So, Darren, if the Cards lose, is the blog headline going to include “diddly poo”?

    And in Carolina, Anderson still doesn’t find anything funny.

    Seattle s also on a roll, and Cincy needs to win out and to have a chance to be invited to the dance. I also think this year in order to be in the NFC playoff picture a team needs at least 10-wins. All that being said, the Card’s playoff type games will be against both Seattle and Cincy. It will be interesting how the Cards will respond to those games.

    Rocky and Frank the Tank, Thanks I see people are now seeing what I’ve been saying since the season started. Skelton should now finish the season as the starter even Fitz has started looking good with JS as the QB. I know it won’t happen but let’s work on a deal to trade Kolb, maybe we can pick up some FA for next year. Just a friendly reminder I don’t want to aggravate anybody, but that’s just my opinion. Damm, when are the #19 Jersey’s coming out.

    Ukcaerdsfan –

    I’m not going off the deep end with Skelton. I have acknowledged that he has played poorly in some games as well. But you are going off the deep end in the other direction by discounting what Skelton HAS done in some of these games. He was definitely a factor in the wins in Philly and against San Fran. Can I tell you that Kolb would not have won those games? No. By the same token, you cannot say that Skelton was a total non-factor. He absolutely was. Let’s not get carried away with the defense, either. I love how they’re playing but they’re not the 85 Bears or the 2000 Ravens, OK? They are not good enough yet to win games by themselves if / when the QB is doing nothing.

    AND anyone with eyes to see CAN see that Fitz is bigger when Skelton is under center. You gonna tell me that means nothing???

  48. By Rocky on Dec 14, 2011 | Reply

    Dylan.. appreciate your point of view… but if you really look at the whole picture.. compare the two TOTALY different styles of the Qb’s.. Kolbs success in the second half of that game.. came because he was rolling out of the pocket… he can’t see over his o-line.. to be a success in this league… you have to be able to STAY in the pocket.. Skelton stands tall in the pocket.. checks the reads.. progresses through the routes… finds an open man… that game he struggled in recently.. even he admitted.. he was staring down Fitz trying to force the ball to him.. ( say it with me… ROOKIE MISTAKES.. ) If Kolb could find another option… step up in the pocket.. look for second..or third reciever..but we all know to do that… he has to step up in the pocket.. The reason I bring up Peyton & Eli’s rookie seasons… is important ( by the way.. Jake delhome had a pretty good career, Check his numbers ) Coaches put the reigns in their hands.. trust is essential… they could make mistakes without thinking they were gonna be benched… Eli had a pretty good QB behind him.. ( on that bench) Kurt Warner..but the Giants knew they had to take some lumps today… because they could see his POTENTIAL!!!! he was a POCKET passer… Peyton.. a POCKET passer.. Kurt Warner…A POCKET passer… Skelton steps up in the pocket…Keeps his eyes downfield..when pressure comes.. he uses his feet really well to get himself out of trouble.. and FACE it the man is a winner , twoyears ..barring injury…WE COULD HAVE SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL …ALL KOLB SEES IS FITZ… AND SOMETIMES THE TE.. ( SECOND OPTION) LOOK HOW MANY TIMES ROBERTS.. AND DUCETT ARE RUNNING WIDE OPEN ..AND kOLB CAN’T FIND THEM.. Even the announcer for the telecast spotted it… my son said… Dad… he said the same thing you’ve been saying all along…Kolb canot find his third or forth reciever..one last thing.. why do you see so many two te sets with Kolb at QB… but four and five wide with Skelton..??? KEEP ONE TE IN TO BLOCK.. THE OTHER IS A SHORT SAFETY VALVE IF THE PRIMARY GUY IS COVERED.. SKELTON CAN READ THE FOUR AND FIVE RECIEVER ROUTES… BE BLESSED MY FRIEND

    Everybody is getting ahead of themselves. First we need to take care of business and win the rest of our games. Historically, following a big win (I consider 9ers big win, Dallas more of of beating a high profile team with big bucks) and playing a “lessor” team, we have choked, so, I hope we can stay focused on the job at hand, prepare like we were going up against the Packers and go out and win. I have seen this team go against all odds and win, and while a lot of people would say that was the old days with Kurt and Q, etc., we still have Coach, Fitz, Adub, DD, the Hypen,Beanie, the tenacity to get it done…and now we’ve got a killer D and some awesome players who never get recognition.
    LET’S DO IT! LET’S GET BEANIE HIS YARDS AND FINISH STRONG..GO CARDS! BEAT THE BROWNS!….FOCUS!

    People,
    lets not forget that 4 out of those six losses were by 4 points or less, 3 of them we had leads in the 4th that the D gave up, I agree Kolb wasn’t playing great but we were in position to win. I won’t blame Seattle on the D because they held down the Seahawks to minimal points. We could very easily be 10-3 had our D played better. It wasn’t all Kolb and the wins haven’t been all Skelton. That being said, I love Skelton’s ability to avoid sacks in the pocket. He needs to work on reading defenses, while Kolb seems to have greatly improved in his pocket presence as well. I think we have two potentially great QB’s and that is a great problem to have, can’t wait for Sunday. GO CARDS!!!!!!

    @ Bruce P –

    First I’ll tell you that I was not one of those that were calling for Whisenhunt to be fired. I did find your “bandwagon fan” post amusing just the same. Naturally Whisenhunt looks better with the team winning so naturally FANS are more satisfied with the job he is doing presently. That doesn’t make sense to you? To paraphrase Herm Edwards you play to win the game. When you say that there were several games the team could have won earlier in the season but didn’t I completely agree….Don’t you think that in itself might be a reason why some fans were fully dissatisfied with the coaching staff? So when a person points out, complains about, etc. the deficiencies of the team when the team is losing week in and week out but then turns around and gives credit where it is due when the team is performing better that makes that person a “bandwagon fan”? That is some line of reasoning you’re using there.

    Damn it guys, lets stop trying to create a qb controversy. Cardinal fans want them both to do well, or you are not a Card fan. Let it play out as it will, soon enough, Both seem like very nice people, good for your community and the org. Lets focus on Cleveland. We really need this win, or it will really tarnish what has happened the last six weeks. I just want whoever plays to look really good, and so far, neither really have. We need to find out what we have for next year, from either or both. You can’t go into the playoffs and expect to do anything without really good qb play, no matter how good your defense is playing.

    @joe67 – My thoughts exactly. The Kob/Skelton hatefest/lovefest is really unnecessary. As John the Draft Guy pointed out on a previous thread when there was a competition between Leinart and Warner, Whiz chose the better man even though the Bidwills would probably have preferred Leinart. There is no reason to believe this won’t be handled in the same way. Right now both have shown potential and have had their moments but neither has shown real consistency. Hopefully at least one take that next step and will be given the keys to the car. It will not be settled until camp breaks next year IMO. So until then enjoy the next three games.

    We dug our own grave and it has been happening over the past 3yrs with the new def cords. We shouldn’t have been in this position to start this yr. if we would have put the right man in the shoes in the 1st place. I absolutely love the cards and always will, but by the way the team is run we will always be in this position. It’s obvious that whiz is a great coach, but he needs agood off. Coord to get this team in the play offs. It’s all about the play calling and that’s why we desperately need Haley back. Whiz has done a great job of putting the pieces in place and some of the pieces need to mature especially the qb position. I don’t think getting rid of the whiz is the right call,but we do need a solid off Coord because whiz is horrible at the play calling and so is the current off Coord. So for now, I will pray that I have the luxury of watching my team in the playoffs

    as for the qb debacle, u all are crazy to consider the cards offense has improved with either qb. The only reason we are winning now is strictly because our defense. It’s not like our offense is putting up points. Neither qb has time to sit inthe pocket and when they do, they get hurt. So until we invest some $$$$ in an off line, I still believe Kobb can be a great qb for the cards. Also, haven’t u all been paying attention to all the dropped balls at the beginning of the yr on those 4th qtr comebacks. The thing I love about Haley is that when a play isn’t executed, he isn’t afraid to let the player know it.
