Niners game a sellout

Posted by Darren Urban on November 26, 2010 – 3:58 pm

Fear not, those worried about a TV blackout — the Cardinals’ 50th game at University of Phoenix Stadium (including preseason and postseason games) on Monday night against the 49ers is a sellout. That makes the Cards 50-for-50 in sellouts at home and should make for a great backdrop for the national ESPN telecast.

Don’t forget, the Cards are also wearing the black uniforms in the game as well.

    You can wear them in one preseason game and two regular-season games.

    If we only win one more game this year, let this be it. I took it personal when the 49ers were annointed “the team to beat” in the NFC West. I think the NFL gave them 5 primte time games this year? And we are coming off of back to back division titles. Hell, they (49ers) are still being touted as a time on the rise??? And we once again have the stigma of “same ol’ Cards”. Knock some teeth around. Play with a chip! And then after winning the only game that matters…..reel off 4 more and win the west!
    Run hard. Run often. And punish them for being them.

    This really sucks. Here in Vegas, I rarely get to see the Cards on TV. In fact, this would be the first time a full Cards game will be broadcasted this season… I was looking forward to this for weeks, and then I find out that I’ll probably be working from 3pm – 12pm!!! Damn construction, what a buzz kill. Oh well, guess I’ll have to stay glued to my NFL app while working, hopefully wont get yelled at too much. :/

    Skelton won’t play this year or next.
    Graves and Whiz made a mistake.

    We drive 8 hours each way to and/from Phoenix for all the home games, win or lose, we’ll be there! Go Cards! It’s been a rough year, the players and the fans sure could use a win Monday night! Don’t forget Cardinals…We Do This Together! – Monica in NM

    Agree with Nick. If the Cards only win one more game this year, it has to be this week.(Well, and the last game of the season of course.)
    I believe Glendale is forecasted for a chance of rain Monday night. If so, the roof will be closed, correct?

    “Play Skelton”
    It’s too bad Darren thought it more worhthy to mention fans on “Cards Underground” who have been calling for QB’s like Vince Young, Jeff Garcia, Timm Rosenbach, etc…rather than deal with reality and the fans like you calliing for the Cards very own J. Skelton.

    News reports say that Larry wants out of Cardinals

  17. By disappointed_card on Nov 27, 2010 | Reply

    News says that Larry had enough of Cardinal QB insecurity and he sees himself as a Jerry Rice. and he is wasting time as Cardinals are showing indecision on QB. I really think Whiz may have dealt long time damage with his Lienart drama and he better take care of issues before things exploded

    Yipee! Another week of sitting through a game watching anderson play even worse than McCown. You know its a bad season when you don’t have any positives to take from it other than LSH is one heck of a return man. And if I have to hear about how its ok that the cars suck this year because they went to the super bowl coming on two years ago, I’m going to puke. And I’m strating to think this is going to go beyond just getting a new qb and being good again. Maybe whiz should think about getting some draft advice from Mr. Green

    RE: Cardinals “botched” QB situation and “sobering truth”


    Just wondering if you would also say the following when characterizing the QB situation and ripple effect, as Sando has done? Further, would you ask Whiz to react to that assessment?

    “Calvin from Tucson writes: Can you shed some light as to why the Cardinals aren’t even considering playing John Skelton? Could he possibly be worse than Derek Anderson or Max Hall?

    Mike Sando: Skelton is the third-stringer and the Cardinals have said he’s not as far along as Hall. Your thinking is understandable. Defending Arizona’s handling of the quarterback situation isn’t something I’m going to do. The team has, by all accounts, botched the position. If the season spirals out of control altogether, perhaps we will see Skelton at some point.

    The sobering truth for Arizona, in my view, is that the team has continued to lose even though Anderson has done a better job avoiding turnovers. Early in the season, the Cardinals had reason to think they would be much better off if they could only protect the football. They haven’t seen the desired results, an indication this team might be worse overall than previously thought.”

    I hope Anderson doesn’t blow this game..I don’t think he will play very good and that the defense will be the difference,,,,,,,,,,C’Mon Cards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wish both teams record was better but since their not and arizona’s record is not better I can say this, We are going into Arizona and take over just like last year one MNF. This time we will not take long to put this game away and by half time the game will be over so don’t make plans to watch the whole game. Niner fan should be the only ones there by the 4th quarter OK. Without Warner this team is noting!

    My top five Cardinal mistakes made by Whisenhunt in 2010…

    1) Cutting Matt Leinart two week but opening game and not getting anything for him.
    2) Signing Derek Anderson.
    3) Going into the season with a undrafted rookie as back up.
    4) Cutting second round pick Cody Brown, who did not play a down in the regular season.
    5) Not leaning on the run game to help 50% passing QBs early in the season.

    I wonder what else he has up his sleeves that will make my jaw drop.

  24. By Scott H on Nov 27, 2010 | Reply

    Well, the fans will be there…all we need now is for the team to show up! The whole team. For a whole 60 minutes. And then we have to hope that even THAT is good enough. This is a match-up of two of the biggest disappointments in the league this year. And I thnk the bottom just totally falls out for whoever is on the losing end. And even for the winner, what does it really accomplish??? 4-7 overall??? Still looking up at the Rams and Seahawks??? Oh, goody! Whatever. Hate to say it but I wonder if this game will be just another in a long line of many at this point where a struggling opponent cures all of their ills against the Cardinals, even if it is for only one week. If that is the case, there better be a coordiantor firing and there better be a QB change. If neither happens, it is nothing shy of an outrage.

    Whoever wins this game Monday Night will be sooooo elated! When wins are so hard to come by and you finally get that victory you’ve been longing for it feels like you have won the superbowl! Goodluck Cards.. This is an important game in so many ways. 1.) Billy Davis used to be the D’ Coordinator for the 49ers 2.) IT’S FOR LAST PLACE IN THE DIVISON.

    QB Planning after draft/upon preseason…
    Plan A, Demote John Skelton after 1st preseason game despite a fantastic performance(as good as I’ve ever seen from a rookie QB in 40 years of watching NFL football), and COME FROM BEHIND WIN.
    Plan B, Promote Max Hall
    Plan C, Announce that John Skelton is not good enough yet(show no confidence).
    Plan D, Demote M. Leinart
    Plan E, Promote D. Anderson
    Plan F, Announce that John Skelton is not good enough yet(show no confidence).
    Plan G, Cut M. Leinart
    Plan H, Demote D. Anderson
    Plan I, Announce that John Skelton is not good enought yet(show no confidence).
    Plan J, Promote Max Hall to 1st string QB
    Plan K, Demote Max Hall to 2nd string QB
    Plan L, Announce that John Skelton is not good enought yet(show no confidence).
    Plan M, Promote D. Anderson
    Plan N, stick with plan despite losing
    Plan O, Announce that John Skelton is not good enought yet(show no confidence).
    Plan Q, stick with plan despite losing
    Plan R, stick with plan despite losing
    Plan S, Announce that John Skelton is not good enought yet(show no confidence).
    Plan T, stick with plan despite losing
    Plan U, stick with plan despite losing the 5TH GAME IN A ROW
    Plan V, Announce that John Skelton is not good enought yet(show no confidence).

    If the Cardinals lose this week, it will be more than the 49ers have lost IN A ROW this 2010 season. You do remember what you said about Mike Singletary when they lost 5 GAMES IN A ROW don’t you???

    50 straight sell outs and what have the Bidwills done for you Cardinals fans? Oh yeah, they went out and spent back up QB money on DA:

    “Anderson has been too erratic to be considered a true starter in this league. His arm strength is far and away his best attribute. Anderson doesn’t put enough touch on his underneath throws and overall, isn’t particularly accurate. When bodies are falling around him, his downfield focus is often compromised and he doesn’t do well when the play doesn’t go to script. He is also a terrible athlete for the position with heavy feet and the inability to avoid rushers”

    That was from ESPN insider a week or so before the Cards decided this was a good direction for the organizationl. They probably spend a little $ on scouts: a very little I’d guess. They could have gotten this for less than $5 a month. Bring it on. Does ANYONE have a problem with this assessment of DA.

    Casey –

    Was there another QB who actually started NFL games who was available for less money than Anderson?

    When you look at the McNabb situation and realize that you could go over half way into to the season just to see how it’s all working out before offering him a real contract…one with all kinds of if this happens or that happens then this will happen…wow, how does this franchise have any fans

    same week in and week out or play J. Skelton and see the futureof our Cardinals

    Tucson Tim- When you look at the Derek Anderson acquisition you have to take into account that he was a Pro bowl quarterback that was in a bad situation on a bad team and never got back in rhythm after an injury. There was a good probability that Derek’s inaccuracy was an issue with his mechanics and the coaching staff was of the opinion that with a little work they could correct the issue. They were also looking for a back up quarterback not a starter. I think whiz was counting on Matt to be the starter but must have been very disappointed about something that wasn’t made public regarding Matt’s play or attitude.

    i don’t think they brought derek in thinking hey this guy is our guy or he would have taken all the reps from the beginning. the reality is he got thrown in late and honestly has greatly underperformed expectations behind a line that nearly got him killed in the first few weeks of the season.

    I hate the way Derek locks on, I hate the way derek throws the ball in a way that gets people hurt. (behind, not in stride, too low, too high, never in the same place twice) I do think derek is salvageable if they put him as back up until he gets his confidence back, and learns to look off the defense before throwing an accurate pass.

    As for skelton the guy is right where he is supposed to be, he made the roster as a number 3 qb because he needs some more time. this is not a knock on skelton this is the way good teams build good players. they dont just throw them to the wolves if it can be avoided.

    Max hall should still be starting and he should be handing off 45 times a game. running 4 times and throwing play action dinks and dunks with one slant thrown in late.

  31. By cardsalltheway on Nov 28, 2010 | Reply

    Don’t you know he’s not ready(not good enough) yet? Maybe, one of these weeks he’ll magically/suddenly be ready. For whatever reason other rookie QB’s on other teams have started or seen action, just not J. Skelton because…he’s not ready yet.

    Mike Sando…”If the season spirals out of control altogether, perhaps we will see Skelton at some point.”
    John Skelton is surely one lucky guy huh, getting in when things have spiralled out of control altogether?

    Mike Sando…”Defending Arizona’s handling of the quarterback situation isn’t something I’m going to do.”
    Thank you Mike Sando, I didn’t think anything was wrong with me. I’ll be able to sleep better tonight knowing that I still understand football.

    i love the cards but this season is ugly for them, the upper management should be prepare on acquiring a veteran QB like Donovan Mcnabb next season ( if Redskins release him bcoz of his bad performance) and be aware that Fitzgerald can just walk away after this season because of the disappointment.

    Adam –

    Gee, thanks for reminding us that the loser of this game sits alone at the bottom of the NFC West…that certainly is sobering. I’m guessing this is NOT what the NFL had in mind when they put this game on the Monday night schedule for late November. Ooops! My gosh…they could actually be in sole possession of last place in THE worst division in football after tonight…if THAT doesn’t sum up just how far we’ve fallen this year, then nothing does. Ah well, let’s look at the bright side – the Seahawks are tied for FIRST PLACE in the division and they’re still pretty much looked upon as a joke right now! That is, if they’re even looked at at all…the NFC West isn’t even acknowledged these days in discussions of who matters in the NFC. Pretty sad. Hard to believe someone from this sorry lot is actually going to make the playoffs…AND host at least one game, no less! Honestly – on merit, the NFC West should not have anyone in the playoffs this year.
