Bradley Sowell gets his first start at left tackle for the Cardinals against a familiar face — Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy, who leads Carolina in sacks with three, was sowellbloguse.jpg?w=269&h=350Sowell’s college teammate at Mississippi for three years.

I’ve been trying to text him,” Sowell said. “I told him, ‘(Help me) keep my job for at least one week.’ “

That brought laughs from the surrounding media. It’s the calm before the storm with Sowell, who as the left tackle is immediately going to be under the spotlight. The expectations are probably tempered, given that Sowell came into the league undrafted and has been released once already. He played left tackle in college. That’s his natural spot (Cards teammate Bobby Massie was the right tackle for Mississippi at the time.) He knows coach Bruce Arians and offensive line coach Harold Goodwin from his rookie season in Indianapolis, and they know him.

Arians said Sowell, playing right tackle, struggled with then-Ravens’ pass rusher Paul Kruger in last year’s playoff game. But Arians said he talked to linebacker John Abraham and other vets who have gone against Sowell in practice and “they think he’s got a great future.”

It doesn’t mean the Cards or even Sowell have a good handle on how he will perform. There’s only so much you can learn as a lineman — defensive or offensive — in practice, where hitting is limited (although the Cards have been in full pads almost every Wednesday.) Sowell admitted he’s a guy who likes to go hard in practice, and that’s a fine line that must be walked in a sport where no one wants to get hurt during the week.

“I’ve been going against our first team guys (on scout team) so I am feeling pretty confident,” Sowell said. “I’m as ready as I can be, I imagine. I won’t know until I get out there, but all I can do is try my hardest and see what I’ve got.”

Sowell is comfortable in the offense, thanks to his season with Arians in Indy. At 6-foot-7, 315 pounds, he’s more of an athletic tackle than power guy. He admitted he was surprised he was cut from the Colts, but acknowledged it became a numbers game. With Arians and Goodwin in Arizona, this became a natural landing spot, and, given Levi Brown’s issues, it’s probably not a shock Sowell has entered the starting lineup.

“I know Coach Goody is going to find guys to bring in that fit the system well, that fit his coaching style well,” quarterback Carson Palmer said. “It’s just comforting knowing that he hand-picked (Sowell).”

 

We should really find out what Monsters inc. is all about this week. 

 

LOL

 

 

 

As a whole their o-line is terrible.

 

Here is what their line consist of.

Bradley Sowell(see above),

Daryn Colledge -- Apparently their best lineman

Lyle Sendlein --Their longest tenured player on the line

Paul Fanaika --In his first year with the team and had never started a game in his career since being drafted in the 7th by Philly until this year

Eric Winston -- In his first year with the team and his stats currently look as bad as the departed Levi Brown

 

and of course we all know Palmer is not going to do much in terms of scrambling.

 

Really excited to see how our whole d-line performs this time. They showed up last week after getting embarrassed by Buffalo. Hopefully the Giant game was a better reflection of the D-line and team as a whole than the Bills game was.

It still blows my mind that 6'7" 315lb guys are considered athletic instead of powerful nowadays.

The Dline better come out on fire.  Set the tone early.  Make Carson paranoid from the get-go.

 

 

No excuse for less than 5 sacks this week.

Kid may be Card's version of Jordan Gross someday with that sense of humor. Couldn't have a better role model IMO.

 

But Hardy is gonna' crush you.  Sorry.
