Hightower’s 100 yards receiving

Posted by Darren Urban on September 13, 2009 – 3:34 pm

Tim Hightower has nine catches for 100 yards with five minutes left in the third quarter, the first Cardinals’ running back to have 100 yards receiving since Larry Centers had 11 for 108 at Indianapolis on Sept. 1, 1996.

    During the game I noticed that Beanie Wells was the stronger more explosive Running Back. I know Tim Hightower is an extremely good pass rusher, but why aren’t the Cardinals starting Wells to run? Wasn’t Wells drafted to be the starting Running Back?
    Hightower doesn’t seem to be getting as good of yardage, and when Wells came in it seems like he was more explosive and was able to gain some very important yards during the game. In my perception I thought that even in the preseason Wells was running better then Hightower, but again that’s just my opinion.

    Looking at Beanie’s first hand off of the game is reason enough for why he isn’t starting. He will be the starter eventually, he is just more explosive, but he needs seasoning. No need to hurry that up when Tim is doing as good as he is. We have a good one-two punch. Now, if we could just stop Warner from looking so old, and get a few recievers to hang on to the balls that DO hit their hands, we might be able to win a game.

    Warner had no time, the line was weak and did not come to play football!
    The 49ers came to played football.
    LGB #29 and RCB #25 were not into the game and let the rest of the defence down. Coach Grimm should start looking for other work. Coach Whisenhunt’s preseason games were more important to him than Warner’s timing with the widereceivers and it showed today.

    Great Job Hightower. I think we saw a great team go out there and realize they needed to shake the cob webs off. Coach Grimm is doing a great job. You can’t go wrong with and ex Hog coaching the line. Wiz just needs to get back in to it. He called the plays for the Steelers, remember? But i have to admit, it would be really interesting to see Beanie ad Lienart be the starters. Leinart looked great in the pre-season.
    GO CARDS!!!!!!!
