There wasn’t much new to talk about this morning when General Manager Steve Keim made his appearance on the “Doug and Wolf” show on Arizona Sports 98.7. That happens when the Cardinals don’t have a game. But Keim did note that the Cardinals’ bye gave certain players needed rest — the roster should be fairly healthy by the time game day rolls around. Keim specifically noted that running back Andre Ellington benefited as he continues to work with his sore toe, and quarterback Carson Palmer got another week to take care of his sore finger.
A couple of other Keim thoughts:
— The Packers ran the ball much better Sunday in Washington. Offensively, they “looked like they got some of their swag back,” Keim said. We’ll see how much that had to do with going against a defense that was down near the bottom of the league.
— As for facing a team that the Cards beat up, 38-8, a few weeks back, “I’m sure they will use that last game as some fuel to their fire,” Keim said. It’s kind of the opposite of what the Cardinals would deal with against the Seahawks. A little bit, at least.
— Keim fully expects the Packers to have “some different wrinkles.” “We just have to focus and have intensity,” Keim said.
