Roberts, Campbell active for Cardinals

Posted by Darren Urban on December 9, 2012 – 12:58 pm

The Cardinals will have WR Andre Roberts and DE Calais Campbell active today, which is a good sign. The surprise inactive today is rookie cornerback Jamell Fleming, who has been dealing with a back issue but more importantly has lost snaps over recent weeks falling down the depth chart.

Also inactive:

— QB Kevin Kolb (ribs)

— DE Ronald Talley (ankle)

— WR LaRon Byrd

— G Senio Kelemete

— T Pat McQuistan

— TE Kory Sperry

Defensive tackle Darnell Dockett is active, but given his on-field argument with Kerry Rhodes last weekend and his disagreement with the decision of the coaching staff at the end of the Jets game, he is expected to lose some playing time. With Talley out, the Cards figure they will need Dockett.

    This game is simply up to the offensive line.

    I would say its more on Skelton and the running backs

    Good to see both of these guys active today. Now we’ll see how much they play. Hopefully we can get maximum contribution out of both of them. GO CARDS!

    Hey Darren–Hope u r good! Cards need to play a smart game today. Have to limit penalties and turnovers. Seahawks will come out hard at home attempting to revenge their earlier loss at Arizona. I hope the Cards attempt to run the ball more in this game and show some ball control. Darren–Do you see Dockett missing considerable playing time today??? or just maybe a series or two??? Cards need him!!

    I just don’t see Skelton playing any better than Lindley. I expect to see a lot of missed passes

    @ IFWT, Skelton has to hit the wide open receivers, defense has to stop lynch, Beanie has to run like he wants it.

    That interception was Larry Fitzgerald’s fault not John Skelton.

    Watching the game in the 1st quarter. Cardinals’ defense is very porous. Anyone thinking the Cardinals’ defense is very good is crazy. And the 1st quarter interception against Skelton was not his fault.
    Can’t believe some of the posts on this site about how special our defense is.

    O.K. I have been quiet but this team needs a facelift, this is just embarrassing, I am so lost, it is almost like we went back in time to the 80’s and 90’s and 2000’s it’s like, awe heck I don’t know, just frustating….

    wow 31-0 at Half if whiz is not fired Then i start to question Mike B. about his role with the team…

    To all the people who say our QB’s should just throw it to Fitz and hope for the best — that doesn’t work when your QB’s have accuracy issues. So far, he has zero catches, but 3 poorly thrown or forced balls targeted to him have been intercepted. And it’s just the first half. So much for “just throw it to Fitz.”

  14. By Dude on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    I can now understand why Skelton has his receivers only catching passes 5 yards or less..he keeps throwing it in the dirt with anything further..or interceptions..

  15. By Dude on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    Not sure who is helping Seattle more, Skelton or Peterson..

    How irrelivant the Best WR in the NFL is on the Cardinals, they should probably contimplating trading him, they are so far from a decent offense, Fitz will probably be 40 years old by the time they are good. No RB’s, No QB’s, and No Oline, and the Cardinals are going no where.

    GOTTA be MATT’s Fault……..notice the crispness and SNAP…..LOL!!! I’d say spend the entire next draft on O……but, these CLOWNS would draft 4 one-legged running backs and 3 one-armed receivers………LOL!!! In Whiz YOU trust… these clowns in the front office and coaching staff actually take a PayCheck?…no, I’m serious…….aren’t they too embarassed to take money for this JOKE………..IT’S MATT’S FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hapless and pathetic. Congratulations, Cardinals organization and coaches, you have achieved both in equal measure.

    Did I say in my last post that the seahawks were gonna hand our asses to us? Well, it appears that was FAR too kind of a prediction. We aren’t having our asses handed to us – we are having them shoved down our throats. Thank you, Cardinals, for this wonderful trip down memeory lane. Ah the good ol’ days…they are here again. And probably here to stay.

    Ken Whisenhunt needs to – AND SHOULD BE – fired first thing tomorrow morning. Period. A few weeks ago, I would have said he deserves the respect of finishing the season. Ya know what? Forget it. He deserves nothing. He deserves a ride home on the team flight tonight. Fine. Beyond that? Hit the road, Jack. Good bye, good riddance, and frankly, I hope the door DOES hit ya in the rear end on your way out. We, the fans, have been getting our asses kicked for the past 9 weeks, so why should you be spared? If you had any integrity, you would resign yourself.

    Wuzzenhunt has to be fired after this game. Ther is no way he should be allowed to finish this season out. This game is a comete joke.

    hahaha the first 5 commenters approved on this blog had no idea what was going to happen after

  21. By cardsalltheway on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    51 – 0 and the 3rd quarter ain’t even over yet. It’s a landslide, the Seahawk fans are having fun:(

    Sweet job Ken W., we’re now 4 – 9 and soon to be 4 – 12. No other team in the NFL has lost 9 games in a row this season. And, we’ll end up with a 1 – 5 record in the NFC West. HAHAHA!!!

    The system works!!! If Ken W. had Russell Wilson as a QB we’d still lose. We haven’t lost 9 games in a row since the 1940’s, this is a classic.

    We can’t even pick up a fumble after a Ryan Lindley sack. I can’t watch this anymore, I’m watching the Red Zone so I can watch some real NFL football. Ken W. will turn things around for us next year I’m sure:)

    The cards lost again, I’m sure tthat made your day, or week!

    So, do we fire Whiz tonight and promote Horton or wait for Reid to leave Philly.

  24. By scubasteve12 on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    anyone still think skelton couldnt possibly do worse than lindleys 1 fumble and 4 ints?

  25. By lg on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    im gone say it but i think eveybody know this it’s 51 to zero right now and this is by far the worse game i’ve ever seen and i’ve been watching for 17 years but today i know what it is this team dont want to play for ken whisenhunt no more.

  26. By johnnybluenose on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    at the end of the third quarter it’s 51 to zero. i know this because my phone keeps ringing as my friends have been calling to remind me. they are very thoughtful in this way but i don’t think i will answer any more tonight. our great coach will once again begin his postgame comments by saying that he is obviously disappointed. he will go on to say that everyone is still committed and is working hard, that the plays are there, it is just a matter of executing them. no one believes him anymore and, even worse, few care. whiz deserves this humiliation for the way he has coached and managed this team.

  27. By Goodz in PHX 17 on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    Hopefully this game sent a message to the front office, coach whiz, and the bidwill family. whiz off coordinator must go, and there should be a big time player evaluation, nobody out there has showed any kind of heart since they were down 24-0.

    Does anybody think there will be any more sellouts for Cardinal games after this debacle?

  29. By wnycardfan on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    so much for “it will be close”
    Skelton experiment looks done forever now. 4 INT 2 fumbles???
    who they going to play as QB in the next 3 games? Both him and Lindley are horrendous
    Where was DEF? I guess they got sick of being the only ones working hard and gave it up this week. What a joke. Holy crap its a mess a complete mess.
    as of now, PP has more YARDS reception than Fitzgerald………say what????
    I expected them to lose, but not like this. I can’t even pile on the coach, I mean its just sad

  30. By Barry on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    0-58 really??? And Ken whiz has a job still?. Hmmm wow!!

  31. By dallas on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    Fire Whiz! See if Reed wants to come in after the season.

    This post is after the Seattle game.

    What a stinker.

    Being an employee of the Cardinals — I know you have to support the organization. However, speaking for myself, and many fans —I think it would serve you and the team better to be more honest, and give insight as to the unrest within the organization and possible solutions or directions you might have over-heard within the organization and shed some light upon it. Obvious, after having your head handed to you — with the other team, not even breaking into a sweat — changes have to be on the front burner.

    58 – 0

    “Replied the coach: “Do you play?”

    Ken W. just doesn’t get it. The question is… WHO CAN COACH?

  35. By cardsalltheway on Dec 9, 2012 | Reply

    Ken W. doesn’t have a problem with the character of anyone. I’ll bet the players say WAY WORSE things about Ken W. than any of us fans. Ken W. just doesn’t get it or he is just pretending as though he doesn’t have a problem with anyone’s character. He’s a bad actor! I mean, does he want players on the team to don’t listen to him and that he has to fine $200.000

    Coach Whiz should get fined for impersonation a head coach. Fire him and sign Horton to a head coaching job. Whoever has the official charge of drafting our players should be fired, stupid decisions and bad coaching is whats killing us.
