Getting Defensive - Arizona Cardinals

41 posts in this topic

I have been watching the Cardinals @ Bucs game condensed, I'm pretty sure Star will have a great day. They were quite able to contain the edges, but the center of that line had huge problems.

They have yet to face a top 20 rushing attack this season.

Panthers are a top 5 rushing attack.

I think we will have success.

I didn't realize that. My fear is them shutting the run down, forcing Cam to throw with two dynamic DB's. I know they're really worried about Olsen. By them I mean their fans.

I'm really just worried about the normal Rivera Panthers showing up and finding new ways to lose to an inferior opponent.

Panthers also have faced the 27th, 28th and 18th rush defenses.

like most weeks, we go in confident or worried about something and it gets flipped on its head.

This would be a potential area to watch for.

With our running game resurging, I feel we'll manage to put up a respectable 24 points. I'm not convinced their defense is good enough to stop us in this area. As far as their offense is concerned, Carson Palmer is a decent QB, but I think he's going to get shaken up early by who other then the Kraken, and will struggle. I'm predicting when win this game convincenly: 24-13

And we will have to prove we can run the ball to win. If we can do that then we will be able to nullify there only way to beat us. Well provided Shula or Rivera does not poo the bed but that's every week.

If AZ hasn't proven to have a good rush D.....we haven't proven to have a good rush attack.

I see our rush getting bottled up or contained. Running for the sake of running to keep the play action respected IMO.

Defense IMO will need to win this game. AZ likely saying the same. Tougher game IMO than most are expecting

Yeah, I'm not overlooking Arizona's D. They've been legit for years.

Cam's ability to run and Ginn's ability to get vertical will be keys in this game. The threat of those 2 should open up room for the RBs, Smitty, Olsen and Lafell to make things happen in the underneath and intermediate areas of the field.

They have a good run D. They shut down Reggie Bush who is otherwise having a prolific year. Same with Doug Martin who was having a good year until only getting 45 yards on 27 carries.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
