  • Look out for the Cardinals!

    ...okay, maybe not this year, but next year they might give the Rams (and the rest of the league) reason for concern.

    (disclaimer: I'm a Cards fan checking out your site)

    Still, I think they have a (very slim) chance of surprising teams this year--Rams included. The Arizona defense is going to be better than people think (Starks and Macklin at CB and Berry and Dockett on the D line finally starts sounding like a legit NFL defense), and if Johnson and Fitz are healthy, the offense should be able to move the ball through the air.

    Anyway, I'm not trying to smack talk--I'm not picking the Cards by any stretch, but they might start surprising some teams with stiffer competition than they're expecting.

    The Rams' offense should still have field days if your o-line can hold up, it's your defense that I think is the big question mark--and not because of the personell. Larry Marmie runs the softest schemes I've ever seen at ANY level.

    Anyhoo, flame away!

    No reason to flame. We're happy you're here.


    In fact, its an honor to have 50% of the Cardinal fans in the country visit us.

    Maybe the other one will come by some day. :redface:

      I just had a son, so now I only represent 33.3%.

      Man, some people just don't keep up with current events.

        Welcome aboard. I wish we had a few more from other team's drop in ever so often.

        I too think the Cards are on their way up and certainly better than their 4-12 mark last year. Earlier I predicted a 3rd place finish at 7-9 for them. However, two of those 9 losses will be at the hands of the Rams.
        The more things change, the more they stay the same.

          You have some credibity with me, Marmie needs to rhyme with mamma, cuz my mamma runs tougher defensive schemes in the kitchen to keep me away from the cookie jar.

          Why did martz go with Mammie? :tongue:

                Good win for the Rams. If you guys can cut down on the msitakes, you'll be tough to beat.

                This game could have gone either way despite a completley lopsided yardage ratio. If The Cards hadn't held on the interception play that was returned for a TD, this might have ended up a 17-9 game. That penalty was a 15-point swing (the Cards lost 7, the Rams got 8).

                When we meet again it should be another good game. I suspect the Cardinals offense will be in better sync with each other, and I think this defense will continue to make big plays and get better at stopping the run.

                I'll be back the week before the next Rams/Cards contest. This week I'm off to the Pats' board.

                Adios, fellow football fanatics.

                  ...then Manu makes the catch. The only reason that pass wasn't completed, IMO, was because Manu was being held. If he wasn't held, then I don't think you're looking at an interception.

                  Anyways, the Cardinals have a talented young receiving core that will probably test our secondary for years to come. If McCown has time in the pocket, I think he can be an efficient quarterback. The Rams will definitely have to bring it up a notch and cut down on mistakes if they expect to go to Arizona and win. You guys play hard at home.

                    Maybe, maybe not. I'm not making excuses, or saying it was a bad call, or that it didn't affect the outcome; all I'm saying is that it was that close and that was a pivital point in the game.

                      I definitely agree with that. I just don't think it's a pick if Manu isn't held. Whenever I watched the replay, it seemed as if the reason the defender was able to get a clear look at the ball was because Manu was being held back.

                          by laram0
                          Last night via Satellite Radio on a broadcast called Late Hits/NFL Radio. Carl Banks (retired linebacker/NY Giants) a supposed expert on the show stated that the AZ Cardinals will without fail finish at least second in their division.
                          They went through the Cardinals upcoming schedule including the 2 games vs our RAMS. Banks response was that the Cards would handle the Rams and sweep the series. Also stated that the Cards had a great chance of making it as a wild card. What is he basing this on ? Yeah so they have a top 10 defense from last year, they have top line receivers, added Edge, still have KW. What about the rest ? O-line ? TE position ? OC ? DC ? Bench ? Special teams ? As we all know there's alot more to football than the supposed strengths the Cards presently have.

                          This obviously caught my interest, All I can say is that we have been hearing about the Cinderella Cards since Dennis Green became the Headcoach, Well, I still don't see it. I would like to see KW do well but not at our expense.

                          :r

                          Edge and the Cards.

                          Look guys I don't see how in the world people think that just because they got edge that there O-line will all of the sudden be better. they are counting on 2 rookies to get the job done, I dont see it happening for them. The cardinals are an overrated organization and will always be just the cards nothing more nothing less. that is just my opinion.

                          When all else fails... there are the Cardinals to make us feel better.

                          Can you imagine what Rams fans would be saying today if the team had lost to the Seahawks in the manner that the Cardinals lost yesterday?

                          I think this board would spontaneously combust.

                          Pete Schrager's prediction for the Rams and Cards
                          by Rampingitup
                          St. Louis at Arizona: A week after nearly squandering a 33-13 fourth-quarter lead in Denver, the Rams should notch their second road win of the season, over lowly Arizona. Sam Bradford continued last week what should make for an Offensive Rookie of the Year campaign, notching the first 300-yard game of his career and tossing three touchdowns in the win at Denver. The Cardinals? They’re a really bad football team. Would they have been this bad with Matt Leinart — a guy who had been in the system for four years — under center in 2010? In hindsight, the Whisenhunt-Leinart situation is a bit like the girl who rejects the longtime best friend when he finally makes his move so she could go on a bunch of blind dates with strangers instead. And those strangers chuckle on the sideline during embarrassing nationally televised blowout losses at home.

                          The Pick: Rams 30, Cardinals 13
