Fitz fast, Hyphen faster, Dockett on fire

Posted by Darren Urban on November 29, 2009 – 4:19 pm

Larry Fitzgerald’s first catch of the second half was the 500th of his career, getting him to that level in just 87 games — the second-fastest in NFL history to 500. Teammate Anquan Boldin, who did it in 80 games, was the fastest.

Then again, no one looked faster on the Cardinals than rookie LaRod Stephens-Howling, who broke off a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown — the first Cards’ rookie to do so since Roy Green did it against the Cowboys in 1979, a 106-yard return.

Finally, Darnell Dockett already has three sacks today (Vince Young had been sacked just once this season on four starts), a career-high in the regular season and tying the three he notched in the Super Bowl.

    There were so many good things about this game I can’t believe we lost. It seems like everyone on the team stepped up for Matt except for the O-line. If they had only given Matt a second or two more to throw, the game wouldn’t have been close.

    Yah, it was a really heart-breaking loss. The only upside is that Matt looked comfortable and eventually effective after a bit. I feel better for our team once Kurt retires.

    The game was’t shown here in Fort Worth, so I was stuck “watching” it on the web site. However, I am pleased that Leinart was able to drive the Cardinals for 10 points. Seemed like he and the offense got into a rhythm as the game progressed. I’m very pleased with the four sacks the Cards made. And what a run back by LaRod Stephens-Howling! They need to put this loss behind them and rise up to the challenge of the Vikings next week.

    There were so many good things about this game I can’t believe we lost.

    According to my math – Tennessee ran 18 straight plays in 2:37 during that drive, converting three 4th & 4’s. Earlier, we let Young off the hook on his own 2 yard line (3rd & 2).

    Despite all the good things, you cannot let that happen and expect to win.

    By saying this, I don’t mean to bash B Davis for being overly passive (because the Cards appeared to be mixing things up on “D.” But somewhere on tape, there lies a reason why we allowed those dudes to run off 18 straight plays.

    Good job, Cardinals!

    We went on the road and almost upset a super hot team with our back-up quarterback.

    Be very proud. The titans just barely pulled it out.

    Any news on the Dansby shoulder injury, him not being out there on the final drive (from what I could see) really looked like it hurt the team.
