Smokey Brown active against Ravens

Posted by Darren Urban on October 26, 2015 – 3:59 pm

Smoke said he was good to go and it turns out he is, so wide receiver John Brown is among the active players for tonight’s game against the Ravens, a positive thing for the Cardinals. It should be noted, however, that with Brown’s hamstring issues of the last two weeks, the Cardinals will have all six wide receivers active for the game — including both Brittan Golden and rookie J.J. Nelson, who is playing in his first games since hurting his shoulder in Chicago.

The Cardinals, with Darren Fells hurt, also only have two tight ends active — Jermaine Gresham and Troy Niklas — so I would guess in the situations where the Cards need a third tight end in jumbo situations, we’ll see reserve center A.Q. Shipley. (Or maybe, with the Ravens’ struggling secondary, we will just see lots and lots of three- and four-wide receiver sets).

The full inactive list for the Cardinals:

— QB Matt Barkley

— LB Alex Okafor (calf)

— LB Shaq Riddick

— T D.J. Humphries

— T Earl Watford

— TE Darren Fells (shoulder)

— NT Xavier Williams

    I didn’t agree with the long field goal attempt. Why A missed field goal is the same as a turnover. My Cardinals just had their first turnover.

    Lucky win.

    The Cards are starting to define themselves — in an unfortunate manner. Cards had numerous chances to put more numbers on the board, but didn’t. Missed extra point, sloppy special teams play, and then allowing Baltimore to easily go down the field to tie the score. Ugh, the Cards should have put this game away mid-way through the 3rd, but didn’t.

    Lack of effort? lack of focus? Bad coaching? Poor paly calling? M/b bits an pieces of the above — who knows. whatever it is, the Cards are showing they are not a top tier team.

    Well, we won. But for Ellington to run out of bounds and for Palmer to throw the ball away rather than take the sack and keep the clock going was beyond stupid. Unbelievable. What is going on?

    Richard S, a missed FG is the same as a turnover? No, it’s a chance for 3 points that didn’t work out. Cat had plenty of leg and just missed that by a couple feet. Calling a missed FG the same as a turnover is like calling a punt a long interception.

    Definitely didn’t like the play call to pass on 2nd down when a run takes it down to the 2-minute warning. And then we ended up with a play that had no chance from the get-go and resulted in a grounding call to boot.

    Earlier in the game, we have a 3rd and 1 and instead of just trying to get the first down, we loft a ball six miles over Fitz’s head… When we’re moving the ball with relative ease, there’s just no reason we have to go for such a low-percentage play.

    I am happy about the win but our Red Zone offense is sub par!

    The defense brings in the big boys up front and we run the ball right at the strength of their defense.

    Arians is hurting this team with absurdly predictable play calling. 3 and 1? Boom, time to throw a three hundred yard pass. Every. Single. Time.

    Additionally, the clock management/play calling combination at the end of the game took what should have been an easy win into a really close game that was won by the skin of our teeth.

    Why are we passing when up by 16 points with under 4 minutes left? There is nothing smart about it. Nothing at all.

    Arians needs to up his game in order for this team to live up to its potential.

    I agree. A long interception is like a punt. It’s the same thing. The same result.
