Dockett in, Heap and Hyphen out

Posted by Darren Urban on October 4, 2012 – 3:59 pm

Defensive tackle Darnell Dockett is indeed active for tonight’s game, but running back LaRod Stephens-Howling (hip) and tight end Todd Heap (knee) remain out. That means William Powell and Rob Housler, respectively, will still play big roles. But having Dockett back should give the defense — coming off an uneven performance against the Dolphins — a boost.

John Skelton (ankle) will also remain inactive for the Rams. Ryan Lindley is still Kevin Kolb’s backup.

The other inactives for the Cards:

— WR LaRon Byrd

— FB Reagan Maui’a

— G Senio Kelemete

— TE Jim Dray (knee)

    What is it that happened to LaRon Byrd? If you posted an article I do apologize I missed it.

    RE: Byrd

    As I have mentioned elsewhere, nothing has happened to Byrd. He’s the fifth receiver on a team that uses four on game day.

    “John Skelton (ankle) will also remain inactive…”

    Dangerous, flirting with disaster. But it’s probably more like just wanting to see the 6th round rookie if…and the thrill of it. Johnny S. was going full speed in practice no, then for what other reason wouldn’t he be active? Makes no sense!

    Deion Sanders: “Kolb will find Heap early and often.” Lulz… Does he do his homework or what.

    Why isn’t R. Grimm fired by now? It was his choice with these Olineman, plus they had cap room to pick up a Vet Tackle when Brown when down, but No, Grimm says Bastia can play-Wrong, reason why 5 teams have cut him–Synder was a terrrible FA pickup., Grimm has a terrrible eye for decent talent….this team will be lucky they don’t get Kolb killed…first 4 rounds of next year’s draft need to be a Left Tackle and Right G. and they better coach up the kid the drafted this past spring to start at Left G, because only Massie is worth keeping…and by the look at his play he shouldn’t be starting either…and how about Grim Whiz and the play caller not on the same page, leaving these tackles with no help all game…they will set a record for the most sacks given up this year…

    Obviously, the OL is worse than expected and Peterson needs work on D.
    Kolb ( I believe) throws the most passes in NFL history while the team only scores 3 points. (Joe Montana threw 60 while 49ers scored 6.)

    On the bright side, no matter what SF does, still in division lead.

    This has to be a record. 17 QB sacks in a 5-day span. Let me say this again, 17 sacks in 5-days. yes, this is supposed to be an NFL ready team. Again, 17 sacks in the last two games. This is playing matador to an extreme. Players coaches and even the janitor who puts the freshner in the urnal needs to be accoutable.17 sacks. one seven. one less than eighteen. sixteen plus one. Unreal.
    this equates to being more than out -techniqued or missed assignments. This is being physically beat. 17 sacks means your technique is bad, you have poor communication, you have slow lineman, and you have physically weak lineman.

    This is an all of the above answer in terms of being beat. Very very very very bad. Accountability needs to be addressed.

    Wow. I clearly did not see this one comming.

    After Pre-season I had us 13-3 with losses to the Patriots, Packers and Falcons. The way we played against NE I felt we’d be 14-2 or better. Well, this means we only need 9 more wins instead of 8 to win the division.

    Go Cards!

    Let’s get John Skelton back in the line-up. We saw the real kolb today. Why pay so much for that.

    I LOVE your optimism, but you gotta figure that if the team is capable of surprising you (with a win over NE), they’re also capable of surprising you by losing to STL. If you had us 13-3 with those losses, that means you’re assuming 6-0 in the division which is extremely tough.

    Big Red,

    Why do you and others keep bringing the salary into it? Kolb’s bonus was paid, so he’s on the team for this year… the money shouldn’t factor into who plays. (And, by the way, that was not a good game by Kolb, but it wasn’t terrible either. No INT’s, 56% completion rate — I’ve certainly seen Skelton do worse. We’re a third through the season and his QBR even with yesterday’s game is 90. Why is this game the “real Kolb” but not the SEA game or the PHI game?)

    It’s just a mirage, Kevin S.
