Boldin is inactive and “new” unis

Posted by Darren Urban on January 10, 2010 – 1:02 pm

The Cardinals’ receivers have come out for early warmups. Anquan Boldin is not among them. Fitz, Urban, Doucet, Breaston and Morey are all accounted for. No surprise. Inactives will be announced at 1:10 p.m. Boldin was always a long shot to play anyway. I will updated inactives when it’s time.

UPDATE: Boldin is inactive today with his bad knee and ankle. No shock. He just isn’t healthy enough to play. The other inactives come as no surprise, as the Cards are healthy enough to have their other main pieces:

  • QB Brian St. Pierre
  • FB Nehemiah Broughton
  • S Rashad Johnson
  • LB Reggie Walker
  • OL Herman Johnson
  • DE Jeremy Clark
  • TE Stephen Spach

UPDATE II: There are no significant players on the Packers’ inactive list. The only player of any note is special teamer Derrick Martin. Also, the Cards have dumped the red-on-red today, going with red tops and white pants like earlier in the season.

    —-q’s last game as a card,and he won’t even play,should have traded him for something during off season,now we will get chump change for him when he’s q and matt,and we end up with a special team player.

    I’m so glad he was playing in the 2nd half last week, that really helped us today…

    Shucks, would have loved to see Q out there. After watching all the pundits taking green bay this morning, with the exception being Bill Cowher. I sure hope the Cardinals lay a whoopin’ on them packers. Lets go Cardinals!

    The Cards draft this year wasn’t very good. Wells-good. Brown-DNP, Johnson-inactive for playoff game, Toler-doesn’t really play, Johnson-inactive all year, Davis-knee surgery, Stephens-Howling-good, Canefield-gone…. Not many contributions from this group

    We´ll win iT for Q!! GO CARDS!!

    Trading Q will be one of the biggest mistakes thi organization could make. Anquan can’t play today, because he was left in a meaningless game. The only person to blame for his injury is Coach Whiz, and believe me I like Whiz. The Cards need Anquan especially if Kurt retires. They resigned Adrian Wilson they can resign the other longest tenured Cardinal.

    As for the game, I am tired of hearing about how great the Packers are and how lousy the Cardinals are. Come on Cards, kick some Packer but. This is our House. Let’s protect the Nest!!!!

    Cards Fan, you really don’t know the meaning of a good draft. Beanie Wells will be our running back for the next 5 years and is a stud. Cody Brown got injured and couldn’t play this season– you can’t judge a guy based on that. Greg Toler, Rashad Johnson, Hermann Johnson are all young players a year or two down the road who are raw, but have a lot of talent. Will Davis played well before his knee surgery (and is healthy now) and Stephens-Howling is great! Great contributions in their FIRST year.

    Whisenhunt’s legacy will be JUST fine with or without Q. He’s a great player and I’d love to keep him, but we’ve proven that we can win without him. If you get a good offer for him, you have to think about trading him.

    Spitfire, three words, “Bite your toung”. Yes they have won without Boldin, but Boldin is more than just a good player, he is a quality veteran leader in the locker room. Kurt’s got one year left, hopefully, if he decides not to retire( god forbid) Anquan has a good five years left. He has flourished in this system. He may not have Fitz numbers, but then again, who does? Re-sign Boldin, ‘nough said!!

    I agree on Wells, but Im just talking in terms of this first year impact. I’m not saying he won’t be but how can you possibly say Herman Johnson will be good down the road when he hasn’t play in one game all season? Same said for Toler, and Rashad Johnson. In Rashad Johnson’s case, how are you part of the team all year, and then not active because some random guy takes your spot in the last week of the season. I wouldn’t call that a great contribution. None of those three have played enough to say they made a “great contribution”. Now Davis and Stephens-Howling have been great on special teams as late round picks. Too bad for Brown, but he made zero impact on this season. So really there was not significant impact on rounds 2 through 5.

    The Cards look faster with the white bottoms and red pants. Huge psychological advantage for the Cards. 😉

    Glad they’re sticking with the little details that got them through the playoffs last year.

    Aaron, if you actually read my post, I said if we get a good offer, we should CONSIDER trading him. The reason we don’t want to sign him is because he is asking for Fitzgerald money, which he is not worth. I want to keep him, he’s an amazing player and a hard worker, but he’s not Fitzgerald.

    Cards Fan, I said Toler, Rashad, Herman Johnson would be good down the road because they are raw, but talented. I watched them in college and in the combine, so that’s why I’m saying they’re talented. What would your definition of a great draft be? Getting one future star player in any draft makes it a very good draft and it’s what we’ve done with Beanie Wells (plus several other talented players).
