    Too soon for congrats just for getting into the dance, as the team has accomplished nothing that really matters as yet at the end of the day.

    First, win the NFC West.

    Next, win the NFC.

    Then, win the Super Bowl, and THEN this team will have really accomplished SOMETHING!!!

    If you want to see how good a coach B.A. is, watch the plays he designs for Lindley to execute in this game. I think Lindley is going to shock everyone with an amazing high level performance that will have all the media buzzing Monday morning.

    How good a coach is B.A.?

    Watch what he does for Ryan Lindley Sunday night.

    WOW!!! Even as the Cardinals continue to be over-looked and dismissed because of the injuries, they are the FIRST and ONLY team in the NFC to own a playoff spot.

    In 2008, we went to a SB. Almost won the damn thing,

    in 2009, we entered the season knowing we were a legit SB contender. Remember how GREAT that was?

    Then, Kurt Warner left town and we spent 3 seasons back in the toilet. And it was SOOOO much worse than it ever was because of success we had right before we fell off the edge.

    In 2013, we were playoff caliber and flat out NASTY. We missed the playoffs because the current playoff system is flawed to say the least. But, suddenly, we were legit again.

    In 2014, we ARE legit again. 11 wins for the first time since the mid 70’s and ready to throw down.

    And, best of all, this is not a team that is going to fade away any time soon. They might be even better in 2015 because you would assume this avalanche of injuries could not possibly happen again. How great does THAT feel?

    PS – regarding 2015….two things – find a way to keep Fitz and Todd Bowles here!

    Being in the Dance is good enough for me!!!! After posting back to back 10 win season, last year missing the Playoffs. Yeah !! being here means alot to all the Cardinal faithful. I have never seen an 11 win season, that and clinching a playoff birth, we have a lot to celebrate in AZ!!!!!!!
    It used to be that going 8-8 meant a whole lot to me! I am proud to be a Red C Original…hit that 11 win mark and clinching means the world!

    B.A. is clearly a good coach but good coaches make mistakes also, its nice to give QB Ryan L the opportunity because he cover Stanton but let’s face it you can’t force something out of a player that is not there it is a bad decision to start Ryan L. The rookie Thomas is more talented the stats in his VT years speak for them self the cardinals have a new born star on the sideline NFL history for the 1st time can be made with the Cardinals. This Sunday night game is not the time of favors the greatest opportunity for the Cardinal Franchise is at steak.

    What in the world has happened to Johnny Brown? As quick as he is why can’t they get him more involved? Time to scheme around this guy and get him open in space and let the speed wear the Seahawks down.

    5 things I know about this team and their coaches and expect to see on Sunday;

    1. Arians is a “Don’t be afraid to throw the long ball” coach
    2. Bowles will bring the heat on Wilson and Lynch
    3. Turnovers and special teams have won games for the Cards all year
    4. All the talking heads said we don’t have a chance against the Rams and now Seattle; That is the fuel the Cardinals use to dig deep and dominate.
    5. There truly is a home field advantage in the Nest.

    In 2012, under Coach Whiz, Lindley was a young and very bad quarterback. In 2013, Lindley got better under B.A.and Tom Moore, but they let him go hoping Thomas would eventually be the better QB over time. 2014, Lindley ends up in San Diego and continues to mature and develop. Fast forward to now, Ryan Lindley is two years older, more experienced, and working with two of the best offensive QB coaches in the NFL.

    In 2012 Lindley was not ready and was forced into starting. He had no offensive line and was basically a interception throwing, tackling dummy. In would not matter who was playing QN that year. All would have looked terrible.

    This Sunday, you will see a much more mature and confident Ryan Lindley running the offense of B.A. and running plays Lindley has the highest confidence in. B.A. is going to let him pick three or four deep balls he likes best and has the most confidence in.

    In a nutshell, B.A. is going to design a game plan for Lindley where he has the highest degree of success potential. You will see an offense predicated on running the ball and play action off of that. You will see B.A. set up some double moves for his receivers to get deep behind a pressing man coverage played by Seattle. One or two of these double move, pump and go routes are going to break wide open behind the over aggressive Seattle DB’s.

    Let’s hope a week is long enough for Lindley to get the timing right on those double move deep balls. I also expect to see a lot of tight end passes on crossing routes against that Seattle defense. I hope B.A. will add some screen passes to both tight ends and the running backs. I want to see Kerwynn get that ball on a screen and take it to the house like he did at Utah St.

    This is a trap game for Seattle. Cardinals win 24-10.

    Coach K –

    Just out of curiosity, why do you see this as a trap game for the Seahawks??? This game probably means the division and possibly top seed in the NFC for whoever wins. What are the Seahawks looking past this game to get to????

    Just checking on the Card fans. Good luck on SNF. Don’t see much chatter on the LOB. Don’t under estimate our D, We don’t yours and Pete will be ready. Should be a nail biter. I luv Fitz, I miss his great catches against our old D.
