Receiver picture looks a little better

Posted by Darren Urban on November 30, 2012 – 1:18 pm

Wide receiver Andre Roberts did not practice again Friday, meaning he sat out the entire week with his bad ankle. But he is still listed as questionable to play against the Jets, one of three receivers for the Cards who are questionable. On the good side, the other two questionable — Early Doucet (back) and LaRon Byrd (head) — each we’re upgraded to full practice Friday.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said he also expects two other players listed as questionable to play barring an unforeseen setback between now and game day: DE Calais Campbell (calf) and running back Beanie Wells (knee). I thought all week Beanie was just precautionary, but if he is listed as questionable, perhaps not.

The other questionable player, QB Kevin Kolb (ribs), seems like a long shot to be active Sunday given his circumstances.

One of those listed as questionable for the Jets, backup QB Tim Tebow, is dealing with fractured ribs. ESPN reported Tebow will be inactive Sunday.

    It will be interesting to see how the Jets play Fitzgerald. They like to leave those CBs out on an island, but without Revis Island, only Cromartie can lock up one on one.

    They will leave Fitz one on one at some points in the game. Lindley must be able to see the coverage and give Fitz a chance when it is one on one.

    I think this will be Michael Floyd’s break out game. Look for him to have 100 yards and a TD.

    Also, the Jets have two inside LBs who play the run well. But I dont think either can hang with Housler. If Lindley can work Housler, a safety will have to take him, leaving one on one outside.

    As good as Rex Ryan is as a defensive guy, I believe this is going to be a good offensive game for the cards.

    Hope we have Roberts back.

    At this point, I’ve become torn on the issue of Kolb playing again this year. On one hand, his coming back and playing well over the final stretch may help get teams interested in terms of trade value. Not that I know he would be traded, but…whatever. That is really the ONLY up-side I see to his playing at this point. Winning games is useless and actually works against us because it only knocks us further down in the draft order and further away from the top tier players that we are obviously in need of. If we were interested in winning games, then winning them back in October would have been a good idea. I swear, I think the BASEBALL Cardinals have won a game more recently than we have. Please.

    On the other hand…I see the possibility that kolb comes back, does not play well and maybe even gets hurt again. Yeah. And what trade value does he have then???

    Let’s play this out ever further, shall we? Suppose it is decided after the season that Kolb is NOT the QB we thought we were getting and we are ONCE AGAIN right back in the situation of desperately needing a QB. Does that mean we are right back in the position of being totally fleeced by another team in a trade for another QB ( Michael Vick, Alex Smith, etc ) who will also be no sure thing? Could very well go that way.

    One of these DECADES, this team has to figure out how to break the endless cycle of QB stiffs who are getting us nowhere. There don’t appear to be any Kurt Warner’s out there right now to save us for a few seasons. This team needs to get in on the ground floor with a young QB and ride him into the future. My God, don’t they have to get it right ONCE in my lifetime???

    I’m sure the Jets will allow us to pick them apart. I’m sure they’ll wait till 3rd quarter to blitz us. They’re playing for their playoff-lives. We aren’t.

    Clearly, this team needs to use a high draft pick to get a quality QB…Lindley may make a serviceable backup but is not a starter. He got thrown into the fire before he was ready this year which can only go against him anywhere. I think everyone fails to recognize the importance of having good depth at the QB position for situations like we ran into this year and the continued development of the backups need to be a continuous thing. Don’t just plunk someone on the roster and expect them to germinate into an elite player. I still like Skelton and feel like the Cards did NOTHING with him except use him to scare Kolb into fighting for his job, while we knew he was fragile and injury prone to begin with. I feel really bad for the players and a win would be good for their morale…just am not convinced that the organization has that as a priority at this point in time.

    Just saw the score/write up for the game; I am embarrassed to be a Cardinal fan; the offense is pathetic, injuries or not. Mike Miller needs to be shown the door. Five first downs for the game is horrible. Are you kidding me??!!
