A painful first half

Posted by Darren Urban on September 27, 2009 – 7:08 pm

The Cards trail 21-3 at the half and realistically could be within 21-17 had they just converted when they should have. But turning the ball over twice inside the opponents’ 5-yard line is never a recipe for success. It may not matter either, since Peyton Manning looks like he has solved the Cards’ defense.  We’ll see how the second half plays out — the Cards do get the ball first — but there is much work to do.

    YOU! can’t be serious. We could be winning this if it was for the fumble in the first half. I mean every drive Warner been throwing on the money bench the running back and maybe we could win this.

    PS….D d up go cardinals we got to do this to make it to the super bowl XLIV

    I’m looking to see some accountability this week. from everyone. Coach, Warner, A Dub, The oline, DRC, and everyone else. Fans are paying too much to see such an embarrassing attempt at playing football… The play calling was horrible. Yes, we moved the ball, but we get stupid when it matters. THT runs a nice power play off tackle that puts us in a 2nd and 1… What do we call? 2 draws? we’ve got Tim Hightower and Beanie Wells. Not Leo Washington and Darren Sproles. We’ve got straight ahead, power backs. Why do we insist on negating it? Someone needs to get some urgency about this team. they just look like they don’t want to try when they get down. yes its only 1-2 but San Fran’s playing lights out right now and we can’t seem to do anything right.

    Why does Bill Davis insist on playing the CBs 7-10 yards off the WR? We just get torched yet they continue to do it. It like on defense and in the run game on offnese. we try our best to NOT do what works. You gotta commit to some eventually right?

    After the two red zone turnovers, the Cards were deflated 🙁

    That interception… Figures there should have been a penalty for his facemask on Boldin there (Though to be fair, Im not familiar with the rules enough to know if that would cause the play to re replayed, or if it would have been a facemask penalty from the spot at the end of the play)

    If our offensive line could just figure out their issues… Yes, Warner holds on to the ball too long at times, but that game his protection just was not there.

    I am just glad that Warner is not becoming the fall guy for this. He did all he could do. The problems here go much, much deeper than QB play . . . .

    The fumble by Tim really hurt, I still think the Cards should run the ball more….Beanie Wells? p.s……the o line is horrible,they been together along time, they should be better!!!!!!!!!

    I cant believe the game i just seen tonite our defense started the games off well offense started off slow hightower fumled leading to a 95-yard td drive the defence was out their most of the night why do our DB’s play 10 yards off the reciever they should play 5 yards off we have the speed after a while our defence didnt have a consistant pass rush on manning our secondary brokedown offense never could get it started. All I gotta say is their are changes that need to be made offensively and defensively things need to changes no more stupid penalties.

    They should have been throwing more to Hightower out of the backfield. And why were the cards using play-action when everyone knows they can’t run. Also, they need to get Wells more carries and hopefully one of these days, they will learn to run the ball.It was just a horrible game all around.Their offensive line is terrible and I don’t see it getting any better unless they start holding people accountable.Whiz needs an offensive coordinator!

    After the fumble, I was thinking about game-changing plays. I hoped that this wasn’t one. It was.

    My take is when 3rd and one is a running play we’ll be on track. My favorite formation is Kreider in front of Wells. Kreider can really pick the hole and blocks the right guy – really blocks him. Wells follows Wright also which was a dividend when Wright showed up as a good blocking back. I’d like to see Brandon Keith and the Human Planet and maybe even move Canfield off the practice squad and run the ball.

    did you all see when manning had pressure he dumped the ball off at someone’s feet where no one can get it, yet warner try to force something, making mistakes.

    o-line needs to pick it up. they get paid enough to not be tired, if thats the case work harder.

    why did we draft wells, hightower didn’t do anything last year, nothing changed this year. get wells the ball.

    oh yeah and our offense is not even one unit,we have passing game cordinator, then running game cordinator,
    who also has the o-line coaching responsibility.
    its not working.

    It’s a bye week that should mean Bye Bye to Davis he is inept and Bye Bye to Whisenhunt calling plays. We need a new secondary but that can’t be fixed over the next week so we will have to wait.
