Stanton inactive against Seahawks

Posted by Darren Urban on December 21, 2014 – 4:59 pm

No, Drew Stanton will not be active tonight. Despite some brief practice time this week, expecting him to be ready with his knee injury was never really that realistic. It’s Ryan Lindley’s shot in the spotlight, and we’ll see how that turns out. Given that Jonathan Cooper was already ruled out for the game, there are no surprises on the Cardinals’ inactive list for the Seahawks game this evening.

— QB Drew Stanton (knee)

— WR Brittan Golden

— S Chris Clemons

— G Jonathan Cooper (wrist)

— DT Alameda Ta’amu

— G Anthony Steen

— DE Kareem Martin

For the Seahawks, starters center Max Unger (concussion) and left tackle Russell Okung (chest) are both inactive.

    14-3 this sucks. I hope I don’t ever see Lindley again.

    Wow this game is out of hand. These Seahags are lucky we are using our practice squad qb. Lindley is not a NFL caliber player.

    Ryan Lindley was kind of inactive tonight.

    Is there anyone here who thinks Warner wouldn’t have given us a better chance than this damn joker?

    Arians needs to hand the play calling over to someone else. Lindley wasn’t set up for any type of success this season

    We don’t have a QB. I feel terrible for the Cardinals and I feel bad for Ryan Lindley’s parents for coming out to watch their son struggle. The Seattle Seahawks bullied us, I mean when Russell Wilson ran that TD and the score.
    Offensive Issues: Not only was the QB the issue, the entire Offense was the issue. Ryan Lindley proved to us he just isn’t an NFL Caliber QB and he lacks almost all components to become a QB. No accuracy, poor decision making, and lacks ability to drive the ball. We ran the ball a total of 15 times. When we were near mid field, we couldn’t drive the ball. When we were on 3rd and 1, we throw the ball and miss. I thought our goal was to balance the offense with running and passing. Every play after the 14-3 score, we would keep throwing throughout the drive. Not only was Lindley playing scared, Arians was scared that the game was getting out of hand and just kept throwing the ball. Even 2-3yd gains will help in a scoring drive. We could have ran the ball for 2yds, throwing ball for like 3-4yds, and continue throw short yardage plays, We can’t keep throwing the ball down field, I don’t care how much you want to sling it. Wow, Carson Palmer’s injury derailed our season. We missed a wide open Michael Floyd for a TD, Ryan Lindley continues to overthrow passes/

    Defense: What can I say, we pressured well but tackled poorly. We saw Larry Foote get beat once but nobody wanted to provide him some help to cover a big TE. We pressure so much and we can’t contain Russell Wilson. We can’t beat QBs like Wilson.

    To be honest, right now it doesn’t even matter if we win the NFC West or win a playoff game. I just want to see the Cardinals play in the playoffs. We could go down big or we could win but to be honest, I really just gave up on this season. We lose our best QB, we lose our backup, and we have to rely on a 3rd String and 4th String QB. I have given up hope on this season and the only thing that excites me is for the Cardinals to just play in the playoffs. Win or lose, I’ll just watch. We won’t make it to the Super Bowl. The Seahawks won’t lose to the Rams and we can’t win with Ryan Lindley against the 49ers or any team in general. Drew Stanton won’t be healthy enough to play to the caliber he played before he was injured. We will lose to the 49ers. We can barely defend passes. Ranking 30th in the NFL in pass yards allowed just shows our team blitzes so much and that our so called good secondary is only good with names. Patrick Peterson played well and that dropped INT was frustrating but he played well enough. He didn’t necessarily get beat but allowed so 10yd first downs.

    Good season guys but we need healthy guys to win Championships. Can’t wait for next season. We will get Carson Palmer, Andre Ellington, Darnell Dockett, Daryl Washington & Dave Zastudil. Our QB issue will be solved permanently for the entire 2015 season if Carson Palmer stays healthy, Andre Ellington will provide some burst in speed, Darnell Dockett will bring more attitude and leadership to pump up our defense, Daryl Washington improves our pass defense and run defense greatly, and Dave Zastudil will help our punt unit which is so poor since he got injured.Love the Cards but this season is already lost.

    This isn’t Lindleys fault, even if Palmer was playing tonight I doubt things would have been much different. Seattle is probably the best team in the league right now and playing like it.

    We need a running game next seaso, Ellington is not the answer he will just get overworked and injured again! K. Williams may be the answer but I doubt it, need to draft RB high in draft, maybe even first round! Although our pass rush and sack production has increased our pass defense sucks and has suffered greatly due to no pass rush.
    Hopefully they are smart and DWash never plays another down in a Cardinal’s uniform!! But as much as it pains me to say this I think Cardinals need to sign Ray Rice to a team friendly contact and make him our workhorse and still have Ellington in as our big play and change of pace back, even use him in the slot.
    Will say, with the massive amount of injuries no other team in the league could have came close to even finishing above. 500 let alone make the playoffs most would be lucky to finish with 2-3 wins, Seahawks included!!! Dont agree with BA wearing out Ellington, knowing he can’t handle the workhorse back role, and I think Logan Thomas should be the QB, not Lindley, but BA is still coach of the year, and the best thing since sliced bread and best hire Cardinals have ever made!
    To clarify, Thomas should have been QB after Stanton went down!! Carson Palmer is our QB to lead us to the Superbowl next year, there’s no possible way we have all the devastating injuries next season, if DD resigns and somehow Fitz is back then the rest of the league is in serious trouble because our Cardinal’s will dominate all the way through the Superbowl just like they would have this season had it not been for all the injuries!!!!!!!!!!!

    WE need to clean house next year . we only won 1 more game than last year i think time to look at a number 1 coach. Like Pete Carroll and a g.m. like seattle has. No superbowl this year.

    The Cardinals season “is over” for all practical purposes….If we win another game it will be a total miracle….When Bruce Arians didn’t go outside the team and find another quarterback (say Tim Tebow) to come in to finish the season “we were done”…Yesterday’s game against the Seahawks WAS PATHETIC…Every East Coast Sports Commentator is now saying “see, we told you AZ was a fluke”.., and maybe they’re right…The Arias’s offensive play calling was horrible, the Defense didn’t seem to really want to “hard tackle” anybody…and the ASU Sun Devils would have been more competitive than the Cardinals were…

    louis…Why would Pete Carroll want to leave the Seahawks? News flash dude, there aren’t genius HCs falling out of the trees anywhere and even at 11-4, we still had one of the best records in the NFL, better than the Saints who ARE respected!
    In order to win in the playoffs, you have to score points offensively and be smashmouth tough. Even the 9ers were rolling like their life depended upon it when they are out of contention already, but, we just didn’t have the hunger for the win that separates teams in December. The best thing we can do now is to maintain our pride and dignity and not get into the trap of paying the blame game or becoming cry babies. There ain’t no cry’n in football!

    Like i said before the draft,select a big slasher back,[like Jeremy Hill,]to be the thunder to Ellingtons lightning,& then Ellington lasts the season & we have our 1-2 punch…its the way we won our last championship,& it will work again…
