Campbell playing against Seahawks

Posted by Darren Urban on October 17, 2013 – 4:02 pm

It seemed pretty obvious with the way Calais was talking all week, but the defensive end, five days after being taken off the Candlestick Park turf on a stretcher, is playing tonight against the Seahawks. That’s a big deal (and not as scary as it once might have seemed since Campbell said he had been ready to walk off the field last week before the medical staff said no way.) Campbell has six sacks in the last eight games he’s played against Seattle and is having a very good season.

The inactive list, actually, is about what you would expect. LB Dontay Moch is inactive today, a mild surprise but against a team that figures to run a lot, not a shock. Aside from Moch, those sitting are:

— QB Ryan Lindley

— WR Brittan Golden (hamstring)

— RB Ryan Williams

— LB Kenny Demens

— G Earl Watford

— TE D.C. Jefferson

The roof will also be open tonight for the first time this season.

    Why is Ryan Williams still a Cardinal? Cut him already unless we are hoping for a trade.

    Also, glad Calais is playing, we need him tonight. Let’s go Cardinalllllllllllls!

    Ryan Williams has only played like 5 games in 3 years. With Mendenhall, Ellington, Taylor and Smith, Williams is nothing but a cap burden IMHO.

    RE: Williams cap

    You’d save little by cutting him. He isn’t a cap hindrance.

    TNF and the cardinals did not show up to play.

    come on DEF get the ball and score.

    theirs is a reason why A.Roberts don’t get the ball cause when they throw it to him he can’t catch it got to hold on to it

    69 total yard at half time. C’mon man. Can’t everybody see that Palmer and Mendenhall are not getting it done. Another 2 interceptions this game. You can make any excuse you want be we will never will with Palmer and Mendenhall. Told you guys back when the first words came out were looking at Palmer. Told you then he was a mess. The offense does not work with him. He looks confused. He has bad mojo. and above all else. He averages at least 2 turnovers a game. Cardinal Fans, are you starting to see the light now. Cut this chump while we still have a chance this season. What a waste of a season. Would have been much better going with the original pick in Stanton.

    That may be, but he’s filling a roster spot for a guy that might actually play.

    Anyways, it doesn’t matter at this point. Time for Stanton to start. The season is over now.

    For effs sake Cards, draft two tackles with the first two picks next year.

    I freaking hate being a Cards fan sometimes, but sometimes the bright side is that my weekends in late October and November to January are free because there is just no point in watching this team play then.

    Season is over.

    in addition to all of those people that believe in this loser(Palmer) Yes he’s a vet. Yes he can make all the throws but what good is it if he is always throwing to the other team. He’s constantly holding on to the ball too long. Always making the wrong read. Never throws the ball on target unless you are wearing the opposite jersey. This dude is killing us. I didn’t even mention about throwing into double and triple coverage. What a bum, washed up has been. My 10 year old pop warner QB makes better decisions than Palmer. And Mendenhall. We don’t suit up Ryan Williams because he doesn’t play special teams. What has Mendenhall done. He’s just as bad a Palmer if not worse. I’m so sick of watching the defense bust their ass only to watch Palmer and Mendenhall give the game away.

    We’ll lets see we are on national tv, playing rivals, must mean we have to lose and lose like idiots
    Typical cardinal formula
    Palmer is about done
    Def is gassed again
    Offense at 96 yards in 3rd quarter……Arians needs to fire someone

    R we really this bad we don’t try to run from 4 yard line?
    NFL network guys saying a few things I can’t but think they are right on
    Palmer not doing good at all, poor decisions
    Where is balanced play calling? Screen or running play?
    It’s not all online , but they are struggling
    We really look awful. It’s like we didn’t practice at all

    Stick a fork in this team, the season is over. They can’t block, Palmer is terrible. I”m sick of it. Another year of the same old garbage.

    Dear Keim and Arians, please for the love of all things football sign whatever offensive line free agents are available this offseason. I’m sick of our line sucking. It’s been 25 straight years of a garbage offensive line in Arizona.

    The offensive line is garbage, they need to apologize to fans. I want to see videos tomorrow of it. The suck. They couldn’t block traffic with a 10 car pileup.

    Uuuuuuh pull Palmer ? Just a suggestion second week in a row.

    Even the athletic trainer Shearer can’t stand watching this team anymore after 40 years.

    Dear Keims and Arians. Keep Bowles and every single defensive player except for Yeremiah Bell. They are the only strength to this team.

    Everybody on offense should take a pay cut and give it to the DEF cause they play the hold dam game.

    Another close game that we could have won and blown open by a Palmer interception!

    Looks like my sundays are free for the rest of the year. When I moved to NJ, I thought the worst thing was that I gave up my season tickets. Turns out I was wrong.

    I’m tired of this team this year, Atlanta won’t be different, It’d take a miracle to beat Houston, Jaguars, Colts and Eagles to be relevant.

    I want to go to the Eagles game, and take the brunt of the Eagles fans’ wrath with glee, but with the way this team is playing, it’d be piling ish on top of ish at this point. Only if the Cards win the next 4 will I wear my Tillman jersey in the middle of the most dangerous NFL country in the world.

    I am guessing I won’t have to worry about that.

    Our offensive line simply cannot match up against their defensive front 7. Not Palmers fault. They are simply better quality athletes. Period. No more excuses. Next draft, Left Tackle, Quarterback, Right Tackle, Deep speed receiver.

    To start the game the offense moves the ball a little and Z punts to the Seattle 17 yard line. Seattle then gets the ball for the first time and goes 83 yards in 5 plays against our vaunted defense. Enough said.

    yes,it was a poor game,gave up too many easy passing yards,did’nt play with confidence,just never clicked.
    housler flashed a little,but it was late,nice grab for brown for the late td,but we still suck in the red zone and clutch plays,for our caliber of recievers,we get mediocre results,i know much of that is the qbs fault,but the oline and playcalling also play into that and the recievers need to get seperation.

    No more OL talk. Cardinals OL is just as good as the Seahawks, Packers, BEars …..the difference is the wide receivers, they don’t get open. Let’s face it, lump Floyd with Dan Williams and Levi Brown, another first round dud.

    Hey I know what will turn this team around, why doesn’t BA run Mendenhall up the middle on first down. That catch Pete Carrol off guard.

    In this case I agree with you. I think our D played better than our O this game (not saying much considering we didn’t even reach triple digits in total yards until the 4th quarter), but the first two times Seattle had the ball, they had long TD drives. They made us look silly on the opening drive; the second one at least took a few more plays, but still, we had no answer. The D played much better after that, but that put us in a huge hole. This isn’t a team that’s likely to come back from down 14-0, at least not against a good team.
