Seeking secondary against Seahawks

Posted by Darren Urban on December 24, 2016 – 12:59 pm

With Tyrann Mathieu’s late trip to the injured reserve, the Cardinals are going to have two practice squad promotions from this week active against the Seahawks in the secondary today: safety Trevon Hartfield and cornerback Harlan Miller. It’ll be interesting, with cornerback Marcus Cooper (back) out how the Cards handle their defensive backfield. Justin Bethel, who has had his troubles at cornerback, will have to play a role. Defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche is active again as well. New wide receiver Jeremy Ross will get his first chance to be active for the Cards as well.

The Cardinals’ full inactive list on this Christmas Eve:

— QB Zac Dysert

— WR Marquis Bundy

— CB Marcus Cooper (back)

— DT Olsen Pierre

— T D.J. Humphries (concussion)

— DT Ed Stinson

— DT Xavier Williams

    Well, jtdg, scotth, mitch, tucson, darren et al… We can still point to favoritism and question some deals when Tyrann was given a $40Million guarantee while he was still recuperating from knee surgery. They might have paused a bit. He will need a miracle to return to his former capabilities. I wish him well.

    I love his personal growth story, but still SMH. This isn’t solid business sense; it demos something that can create questions ((disention)) among the guys in the locker room. There have been a few such questionable “”untimely”” actions.

    Merry Christmas Darren & Cards Fans….. Beat those @#%$€?# Chawks…!!

    RE: Mathieu

    He was not given a $40M guarantee. It was about $21M.

    Hey Darren… I’m seeing both numbers 21mil and 40 mil… look at this link. Still, it seems a bit hasty for the situation I outlined regardless.

    Seattle game is in the books… Cards showed serious character today. PP still can’t tackle or cover his ga’ma…fair catches every time even when there is lots of room to scat…I doubt this is BA’s strategy… PP still a non-contact player…s-l-i-d-e….! Gave Baldwin a near homerun to set Seattle tie the game. We go on to win…what a TEAM EFFORT…Catman is stunned after his walk off kick…!

    David Johnson still the MVP today and for the year, except our record will not permit…Great effort today… g’day

    Nice win by the Cards.

    Game Observations:

    (+) Palmer, David Johnson, Fitz, TE’s, and DL played outstanding.
    (+) O-line held up, better than expected.
    (+) Catman making game winning FG — good to go, should help his confidence
    (-) The 2nd and 3rd to last offense positions. Play calling was simply horrible
    (-) inability to manage the clock (except for the game winning drive) was horrible
    (-) when obvious adjustments being made at halftime by Seattle, the Cards didn’t counter adjust. Horrible ability to adjust or put a wrinkle in the offense or defense during halftime. Absolutely dreadful ability to out coach the opponent starting the 3rd qtr.(consistent throughout this year).
    (+, +, +) Calais Campbell
    (+) Gunter, Mauro, Peters, M. Golden, Okafor, Moore
    (-) secondary coverage, including Pat Peterson

    I like on how the Cards showed some desire and heart. The game never should have been that close, the Cards literally allowed the Seahawks to climb back into the game.

    Great win by the Cards in Seattle. The Cards offensive line that a lot of people were complaining about turned out to be the difference. BA has to be congratulated for keeping the team together after a couple of tough weeks.
    I hope the front office can properly evaluate this game and make good decisions going forward. There surely was a lot of good and a lot of bad in this game.
    Seattle is not a perfect team especially their OL. But no one can doubt the fact that today the Cardinals were the better team.

    Great beginning then we about lost it after the half. The Seahawks did a much better job of adjusting that the Cards did in re-adjusting to their play. They were on the move and we got lucky they missed their FG. Nonetheless, we played more like a complete team than we have all year…nice to finally get on the same page in time to close the book on a season lost.
    It is extremely painful to watch other teams make the playoffs who aren’t as good as the Cards, but who have been managed better. It’s hard to get excited about the future based upon this one game when the major contributors will likely be gone as FA that the Cards won’t want to pay to bring back.
    Good to see JJ at last becoming the weapon he was expected to be as a situational player, but still will need some big, physical receivers if we expect to do anything next year. I have the sinking feeling this will be Fitz’s last game and he won’t get targeted even eight times; he’ll end his career under Arians the same way it started with BA, with the ball thrown to everybody else and Fitz’s talents wasted.
