Dan Williams sits

Posted by Darren Urban on October 3, 2010 – 11:45 am

As expected, rookie nose tackle Dan Williams is inactive today because he is overweight. Gabe Watson will take his place in the rotation backing up starter Bryan Robinson. The rest of the inactives contain no surprises:

  • WR Steve Breaston (knee)
  • WR Early Doucet (sports hernia)
  • QB John Skelton
  • S Hamza Abdullah
  • CB Brandon McDonald
  • C Ben Claxton
  • LB Alex Hall

    Don’t look now, but the Rams might be the best team in the division, up 17-3 on the Sea Chickens. Even a so called ugly win, in week one might be critical down the stretch. I think the team with the best record against divisional teams will win this thing.

    Gabe, Max K., Stephen Opportunity is knocking time to shine

    Very disappointing…

    2010 draft:

    Williams-Inactive, beaten out by a 36 year old, didn’t robinson say there is somehting wrong if he beats him out.

    Washington-starter by default

    Roberts-Can’t catch a cold


    Skelton-inactive, beaten out by a undrafted player


    Dray-maybe whisenhunt should just trade for every pick in the 7th round because he loves 7th round guys

    This is ridiculous that Williams is overweight. You’re a professional…show some discipline

    hey darren, was wondering how Brandon McDonald is looking … i was realy excited when we picked him up … but he hasnt had a chance to play … is he still learning our playbook ? or is he not impressing the coaches?

    RE: McDonald

    I just don’t think he’s made that much of an impression yet. I will ask about him next week.

    Seriously, Dan Williams is over weight? Come on man, see thats the problem with D lineman drafted high, they have a since of entitlement, like the job should be gave to him, I thought he was way over rated in the draft anyway. He like soooo many other d-lineman picked in the first will most likely never live up to the first round title and be toatally over-paid. remember Glen Dorsey how he was a can’t miss, what has he done for the cheifs? Gerald Mccoy (haven’t heard his name any this year). Suh, well there was the preseason thing with jake delomme but other than that, and who was the guy drafted by the Jags? ( i rest my case}. do not get me wrong I hope he works out and proves me wrong but somehow I doubt it.

    wow I told everyone that Anderson would suck and soooo far he has exceeded my expectations and played much much worse. Wow Whis, I think Leinart should have been the guy. at least we should have a high draft pick to pick a QB.

    Perhaps the 25 other teams that passed on Williams knew something the Cardinals didn’t.

    Josh- Last year we had an undrafted first ballot HOFer running the team. This year we had ML and DA who are both journeymen. I don’t think Leinart would have been any better than DA. We are in a holding pattern until Hall or Skelton can take over or a good QB becomes available in the off season. We will have to manage as best we can.

    we really missed williams in the first half.

    i hope they come out running in the second half. i want to see max operate the offense not just see how he does against full coverage every down while san diego rushes 3

    Don’t you think Whiz and Graves should have known what they had in Leinart after 3+ seasons when Kurt announced his retirement? 3+ years Peter 3+ years!!! 2010 is a holding pattern because of our front office and coach.

    I think they should have known and they had plenty of time to dump Leinart for something in the offseason and bring in McNabb or Bulger or Quarterback X to compete with Anderson. My opinion no way Leinart would have played as poorly as Anderson in these first 4 games. Probably still 2 – 2 but playing better and have the offfense building on something. I would have had no problem dumping Leinart in the offseason, but to say he is our QB and then to dump him right before the season starts and have as your only experience QB Errant Anderson is crazy and you and I Peter would be fired from our jobs if we made such risky decisions.

    we are what we thought we were.

    oh wait a second no we aren’t

    This is idiotic. Over half the lineman in the NFL are overweight. Put the man on the bench because he doesn’t play well on the field, but not because he is overweight.

    Card62- I personally would have thought that Bulger would have been a better bet than Anderson and that is not just hindsight. He had a much better track record. Leinart was going downhill. Last year he was terrible against the Bears and showed nothing against Tennesssee. You are right about the way the Leinart situation was handled. I find it confusing also that he lost the job in training camp after being anointed in February. And of course the front office is responsible. They get credit for the successes and blame for the failures.

    I have always stood by the coaches, always! This is all on the coaches,all of it. We stunk up the field. The o-line was worse than terrible and the d-line was just as bad. We looked like a very bad high school team. The chargers were laughing at us. How many sacks? I think it was nine, shameful. All on the coaches. We have the talent, How many sacks did our defense get? I think it was none! well,well,well, we are on our way back to the basement. Shame on you coach whiz,it is all on you.I know we have alot of our Wr’s out. However we do have some really good runningbacks. You know we need an offensive cord. When we had Tod Haley we went to the bowl. Why are you so set to run both? Is it because thats what you were at the steelers? Please don’t punish the team, get us that extra mind,it is a full time job in itself. I know you are a smart coach, come on man.

    What the Hell happend to both sides of the line and why won’t you guys play John Skelton????????????? Footwork and chemistry is all messed up

    Not only does Max Hall need to start, we need a new defensive coordinator maybe we should start looking out side of the Stealers orginazation for players we are not a very good football team

    Peter in Canada has it right. Our challenge is to manage this transition. Concerning Mr. Bulger – the Rams were not going to release him until the Cards had to choose another QB. Personally I have a lot of respect for Mr. McNabb and believe he is an excellent QB with definate limitations that I was hoping we wouldn’t import. I think Mr. Graves has us right where he was prepared to go with Max Hall if and when Derrick Anderson failed to run the offense. It will be a lot of fun to watch our team help Max Hall to win. He will be coached up for the Saints. The Cardinals want to see thir gameplan carried out and the offense run the way it was designed. When one guy is fumbling with the car keys, it’s only natural to change drivers. I think the defense is a little demoralized. Max Hall knows he can do it.

    Just how many other first-round draft picks were on their team’s inactive list this week due to non-injury reasons?

    well card fans …you are seeing just what i was afraid of…i personally never liked matt leinart because i thought he never had his head in it…but after being told he was the starting qb whisenhunt praised his work ethic…how in the hell as a head coach do you have him take all the snaps in preseason then bench him after only a fewplays in the first preseason game…whisenhunt is getting exactly what he deserves now…anderson was brought in as a backup….hows he looking now whisenhunt as a starter…what a joke…leinart would have got in a rhythm and atleast moved the ball…i can tell you unless max hall can get his reps and try to pull this offense together…and what in the heck has happened to that defense that whisenhunt was so proud of starting the season…im afraid we card fans are in for a long season…and playoffs we just started and that does not even look in the picture…
