Dan Williams breaks arm, out for season

Posted by Darren Urban on November 20, 2011 – 7:42 pm

Nose tackle Dan Williams broke his left arm Sunday in the game against the 49ers. No official word on how long he is out, but with six games left, you figure it’s going to be tough — and probably not worth it — to come back. That means rookie David Carter will move into the starting lineup, and probably means Nick Eason will get more work at the position.

UPDATE: Coach Ken Whisenhunt said on his post game radio show Williams was indeed done for the season.

Right tackle Brandon Keith also suffered a concussion during the game and his status will be evaluated this week.

    The Cards defense played awesome woot, woot! Horton is doing a great job. Now the only thing we need is to get the offense going. What do you think, Darren?

    It must be devostating for a player to have a season ending injury, this is their profession and line of work. I’m sure these types of injuries plays an emotional as well as physical toll. I am in hopes Mr. Williams has a full recovery and is ready for next season. (Looking at the SF game, Mr. Williams appeared to be in on several tackles and moved laterally from middle of scrimmage to each sideline. I think he played a good game.) Again, I hope Mr. Williams has a full recovery and is ready for next season.

    For the last several years, every time the Cardinals lose to the 9ers, Whisenhunt and Dockett never give credit to the 9ers. I just love how proud they are in saying that it was their own fault, they themselves shot themselves in the foot and that’s why they lose. Translation: We’re really better than them; they’re lucky.

    Cardinals: Please continue with that type of mindset in your culture, Downgrading great talent and execution and fooling yourself to thinking that what you are seeing is just luck. That will definitely take you places.

    Figure by next season Dan Williams will come to camp weighing over 500lbs.

    Skelton looked bad, but he is still our best option at QB, and we need to see how far he can develop. If he looks like a legitimate starter by the end of the season we can dump Kolb and his deal, because signing him was a win now trade, and he certainly hasn’t won much this season.

    We got manhandled just like I predicted. No big surprise when u considering our bad drafting the past few years. 49ers were drafting physical players, we weren’t. At least draft the players where it really counts, in the trenches…….just saying. Typical Cardinals team…………look pretty on the outside and below average inside.

    This game reminded me of that meltdown we had against the 49ers in 2009, where the Cards turned the ball over 7 times en route to a 24-9 loss.

    Marc stop eating crackios for breakfast. Why would they give the niners credit. If they don’t think they can win they shouldn’t be on the field. I’m glad they are taking responsibility for a loss since there is really no one else to blame. They obviously got outplayed so it’s not even worth saying. 5 turnovers? Really?

    Bad news for the second year man and the team.

    Another subject: Recently, some fans have written, based on the Cards winning the previous two games (albeit against two teams with lackluster records), that they might win their division or qualify for a Wild Card berth.
    Earth to those fans: GET REAL, WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE ETC.
    They will be lucky to win 6 games this season.

    Also, for those fans who were ready to enshrine (Helter) Skelter into the Ring of Honor or the Football Hall of Fame, WAKE UP!!! He is obviously not ready for prime time.

    The Cards DO NOT have a top notch (or even an above average) QB on their roster.

    I say again (for the umpteenth time), until Graves drafts players and signs FAs that fill the NEEDS of the team, the team is going to be stuck near the bottom of the NFC.

    Also, until Whiz hires a QB coach and a OC that can “git er done”, the Won/Lost record won’t be good enough to compete for the playoffs.

    Plain and simple, we need an OL that can protect, create holes, and not be so predictable. Skelton’s play aside, our defense has improved, but there were several plays that coverage was blown, big time, just grateful that Smith overthrew his receivers. I love my cardinals, always will, but stop with the excuses already, Whiz needs to have a buck stops with me conversation with every player, and himself. Patrick Peterson is going to be a great player, but he missed several plays, and tackles, where is his development? I am hopeful for next season, to have a full offseason, see how it all goes, but stick a fork in us, we are done. What will determine our success is if we keep certain players around next season, Campbell for sure, but we need a complete revamp of the OL, and OL Coaching. Defense did a great job today, gave the offense opportunity the whole first half to get back into the game, we just didn’t seize the opportunities.

    I wish Dan all the best in a speedy recovery, God Bless.

    we had 52 yards of total offense in the first half. I really don’t think there should be a qb debate. John skelton had a 10.5 qb rating. I haven’t seen nukmbers like that since rex grossman days. give kolb at least a year to learn the offense

    After watching this game, I must say, ” WE REALLY NEED AN OFFENSIVE LINE!!!!!” I won’t blame the O-line for the the Interceptions, but this O-line has been terrible all year long!!! I think the defense will be much better next season with a full year under their belts and of course OTA’s. As for QB, I really think the organization blew it big time with Kolb!! Granted this is my personal opinion, but none-the-less it is my opinion. Kolb is way too inconsistent, and obviously has no clue about what is going on around him. To me it is just another expensive investment the Cards have mde that to this point is failing. I understand that Kolb has been on the sidelines for three weeks, but is he suddenly going to be the re-incarnation of Kurt Warner when he returns, I highly doubt it!! All this garbage of win now or it’s over and you are fired is ridiculous. This team needs a solid, consistant QB. How much longer are the fans going to put up with the ridiculous decisions the the front office continues to make. I really wonder if Fitz is regretting his decision to re-sign with the Cards!!!

    Skelton had a really bad game… In fact, I would say that we lost this game because of the QB play as defense played reallly well but was tired in the second half. The two fumbles also cost us 10 points (by Beanie and Peterson). But he is still our best QB option on the roster. Kolb is just terrible with no fundamentals. Skelton has much better fundamentals and this is a learning experience for him. And no… no one was anointing him the to the ring of honor or hall of fame. So, Mr. Chuck 1, you are the one who needs to get a wake up and smell the coffee.

    The off. coaches prepared a bad game plan the cards really need a bonofide OC STOP HIRING WHIZ BUDDIES.I still think skelton is the better qb know until kolb can stop having happy feet and stand in the pocket and deliver the ball like a real qb then and only then will i….. OK HAVE ANYONE SEEN BEANIE OR THE CARDS RUNNING GAME? ONE MORE THING THE O-LINE IS SOFT..

    The def.played good they were just on the field too long because of the off. i think horton might turn this def. around next year.

    My comment regarding Skelton was based on reading comments from a large number of posters, who wrote so glowingly about him after “he” won the previous two games. He obviously needs MUCH more game time exposure (and, even then he might not be a good QB).

    Neither Kolb or Skelton will be good enough to win the NFC West in the near future (or probably even win a Wild Card berth) unless Graves has an epiphany and drafts players and sign FAs that fill the NEEDS of the team e.g. OLineimen who can protect the QBs.

    That’s what you get for f#$%ing with a real team! Go ahead and eat your life away now.

    Pipsqueak, it’s always good to receive your thoughtful comments. .

    By the way, when was the last time that you won the NFC West or played in the
    Super Bowl?
