Doug: Notes on Cardinals loss to Seahawks
Originally published: Oct 25, 2010 - 9:16 am
Cardinals at Seahawks
Campbell stood up his guy and made a nice tackle
How did Clark get unaccounted for, he was 3pt
Huge play for Lynch…3 missed tackles
Jennifer just noticed how few players on SEA's O or AZ's D is wearing the pink…figures she sees it
Nice 1st down run by Lynch off tackle
FS at the one
WOW! Darnell Dockett knew what time the game was. Even Eric Byrnes got a hit every now and then
Branch came off the end to stop the play. AB blew by Locklear
DRC didn't even need to be off sides…he blocked that with his armpit
FG good…3-0 SEA
Just announced Okung is out for the game
Time for MAX Hallll!
Hightower is running well this year…good speed to the outside
Where in the world was Max throwing that? That was worse than a rookie pass
When I told you in the pre-season that Alan Branch was really playing well, I never thought he'd have a season like this. Great pressure.
Max? he was wide open.
I'm running on 3rd & 9. I don't trust Max right now.
Ohh…Max…relax…way too quick with that throw
To show how great Graham is, when have you ever seen him shank it like that?
A third play by Dockett!!...maybe the defense has come to play today
Who was that that came in unblocked…I think it was Clark…O'line play isn't communicating for SEA
C'mon Calais, pay attention to the little things
D-Wash! Great timing on the delayed blitz
Roberts what are you doing? Why did you fair catch that?
Really need the O-line to step up
No one stepped up but punts aren't bad
Great punt…that's what Ben Graham is supposed to be
Branch again! He's all over the place
Really getting pressure up the middle
Williams almost broke a 3 man tackle
End of 1 3-0 SEA
Good PR from Roberts…shocked he didn't drop it
Too much pressure getting to a rookie QB
I actually think Fitz should have caught that…should Hall throw his hands up in frustration?
Punt in the end zone…not good
Tackle Lynch! Calais you have to keep contain!
Billick has no idea what he's doing
Hagans has had a great year…that's how you string out a play
Calais was relentless…he was held on this sack and dbl-teamed
I got nervous on the Forsett draw
Roberts what are you doing? Either let that go in the end zone or go straight up the field and at least get to the 25 with no jukes…this guy isn't even good enough to be labeled a bust
I like how Hightower is carrying the football with two hands
Max's accuracy is erratic…you have to complete that pass to Doucet
Beautiful play design on the quick screen to hyphen
Hightower again…he looks great
Can I actually jinx a running back?
What a terrible fumble
SEA 3-0 7:30 2nd Q
I don't believe it. Alan Branch has played his best game as a pro and it's only been 24 minutes of the game .
Roberts?? Why is this guy on the team? I said from the first practice I saw at training camp he's not an NFL player. I think the Cards are going to lose and there's still 35 minutes left. AZ isn't good enough to overcome Andre Roberts
How did Porter miss that INT?
Great catch by Williams. It's amazing he's been brought back from the dead. Give a ton of credit to Carroll for having faith in him.
10-0 SEA 5:46 2nd Q
Hall to Fitz, finally
Brandon Keith did nothing. Why is he chipping when someone's blowing by him?
Nice catch by Roberts…I'd still cut him
Defense really looks good
Why not call your 2nd TO? I know it's 3rd& short but aren't you telling your defense you don't believe in them?
SEE…AZ lost 40 seconds and now your using your TO
Actually a decent return by Roberts…I'd still cut him
AZ ball 1 TO 10-0 SEA :42 sec
Hall's accuracy is just not there…poor pass to Hightower
I don't like to pass it on the first play. SEA has all three TO's. Run it first and see how far you get to determine whether you have a realistic chance for a FG. If you get stuffed, it makes them use TO's
Great catch by Roberts…I'd still cut him…wait, they ruled it incomplete
AZ punt…with holding call that will end the half
Hasselbeck took a knee
End of half
Sack—please don't tell me that play was really designed for Spach to be set-up 1-on-1 with a LB in pass protect
Max grabbed his facemask but still looked for the ball
SEA ball 10-0 14:06
Big time sack…that might force them to kick a FG
13-0 SEA 12:11
I don't believe it. I love Jason Wright but this can't happen.
These teams are so bad compared to the rest of football.
Another incredible stick by the defense
FG good…never mind…hold
FG good…never mind…hold on the same guy
Now it's good 16-0
WOW! Fitz is alive
Wells running hard
I think Beanie's the new game plan…3 straight runs for TD
They should have gone for 2. It's not like they can score points at will. Not going for two is saying you can drive twice on SEA. It's already been proven they can't so why not go for two?
Big play to Forsett…hit someone DRC
Nice play by RJ…I really like Johnson…it's good to see him play well
FG good…unreal DRC is off-side again
1st down SEA
It's time to announce there are 3 wild card teams in the NFC. No division winner from the West gets to go.
Why is Strahan on? Is there any bigger sign FOX knows how back Billick and Myers are so they have to bring in an interview?
Branch just got a QB hit…he's been unbelievable Hey DRC just did something right.
Defense has been amazing
Great return by hyphen…boy AZ needed that
DA with touch to Roberts…what was more unbelievable, a good pass from DA or Roberts actually catching the ball
Huge 3rd & goal play
Doucet dropped it but I don't think he was going to get in
FG is good 19-10 SEA 14:48 4th Q
Not the time for a good KOR
Good Lynch run…defense needs a turnover…it's unfair to ask because they've played great but it's the only way AZ wins
Calais was perfect…he didn't have contain there so he attacked down the line and made the play
Someone text me the first time DRC makes a big hit tackle
2nd play in a row they're going right at DRC
Calais missed another tackle…should have been a PF on Dockett—he dropped his head into Lynch's helmet as the whistles were blowing
Don't know why that line is there…the computer keeps putting it there and I can't get rid of it
Just missed that Williams catch trying to screw with Microsoft word
Great move by Lynch to stay in bounds…I never would have thought Lynch could do something intelligent but he did
Delay of game
A-DUB…you can't drop that pick
Another red zone stuff by the defense
I'd go for this. A TD ends the game…a FG doesn't do much
Never mind…not doing it after the delay of game
FG SEA…22-10 7:28 4th Q
Was hoping for a big return and didn't get it
I love the Burger King guy
Wasn't Keith supposed to at least bump Babineaux?
I know it was a screen but you have to at least pretend to stop the rush.
DA is not a running QB and Levi makes him one
Great call on the PF…I'm tired of the soccer flop coming to other sports
Hey camera man…move the camera as the pass is thrown
Right through Doucet's hands…I know it wasn't well thrown but you have to catch that pass
Amazing Hightower got any yards on that screen…terribly blocked
I agree with going for it on the 4th down
DA threw it scared…he had all three receivers open but threw it early and the O-Line was terrible as it has been all game
SEA ball 22-10 5:43 in 4th
Toler fell on his back…I'm shocked they threw it there…why not eat clock?
That line is back…it shows up at the end of every page
Nice PF Dockett…since you haven't done anything in 2 hrs you had to show us you're still playing
Good containment Porter…he's been so over-rated…great playcall on the Hassellbeck boot
Holding penalty was a good call
D-Wash was very aggressive on that stuff
Another play by D-Wash
They said Hall was replaced due to a blow to the head but he was on the sideline listening to the play calls in his helmet
Any chance to win they must hold on 3rd & 12
They didn't. Branch wasn't in. Toler missed a tackle…that was ball game
Good decision to go for it. I would have thrown it there. You don't want a FG block ret for TD so you go. Once you're going for it, why not score?
Komar got nailed
Lennon just looked pissed
Komar got nailed again
