Ellington sits out against Eagles

Posted by Darren Urban on December 1, 2013 – 9:30 am

The Cardinals will be without running back Andre Ellington against the Eagles today, not a surprise after he hurt his left knee in practice Thursday, sat out Friday and coach Bruce Arians said then they would be careful with Ellington. That means the Cards have to live without their dynamic rookie today. Fellow running back Ryan Williams is still inactive, however, meaning the running back rotation will be Rashard Mendenhall and Stepfan Taylor with some Alfonso Smith sprinkled in. Wide receiver Brittan Golden is active for the first time since getting hurt against San Francisco.

The inactives aside from Ellington and Williams are familiar faces:

— QB Ryan Lindley

— LB Dontay Moch

— G Earl Watford

— TE Kory Sperry

— DE Ronald Talley

    Truths about the Eagle game:

    1. The two guards and center were out matched, and out played by the two interior Eagle defensive tackles.

    2. Three turnovers normally equals a loss

    3. The officiating crew that did that game will not be asked to do the Super Bowl, or a play-off game, and more than likely not be asked to return next year.

    A team usually doesn’t overcome as many turnovers as the Cards had in Philly.
    And, the Cards didn’t.
    For most of the game, Foles made the Cards’ pass defense look ordinary.
    The secondary has to replace Powers and Bell. Draft or sign a TALLER Free Agent CB, SS and/or a FS who can handle a tall TE.
    Peterson is not the answer at punt returner. He made a stupid mistake, letting a punt become a 70-yarder. Let someone else do the job and draft or sign a FA who can do a better job.
    Housler drops too many passes.

    Cards’ played competitively and the team has improved-but not enough to be in the playoffs. Besides the turnovers and the loss of Ellington, this is my #1 takeaway from the Eagles game:
    1) When the Cardinals scored to make the score 7-7, our defense allowed the Eagles to take the ensuing kickoff and march right down the field and score a field goal- yes, the defense did stiffen to just allow a field goal. However, the tone of the game was set. The Cards would continue to play from behind and play with bad field position. The Cards’ defense could have made a statement on that kickoff and didn’t.

    Botom line in this game…. Cards beat the Eagles but lost to the officials… The calls that were made against the Cards in the last 4 ,onutes of the game were HORRIBLE…. PP had the pick but it was called back, Floyd was mugged on the one pass play but it wasn’t called interference… The call against Shaunessy was a BS call as even the announcer said so…. I guess the ref’s had plans for dinner later and didn’t want to be late.

    The “Hands of Stone Houser” drop killed the drive in the first half… The offense was performing well on that drive… Fitz should eork with him….

    The Cards looked like they regressed a little this game but still could have won….

    Bring back Kerry Rhoades to handle the tight ends.
