Thoughts on the Cardinals game

  • Matt Schaub held the ball longer on the first play from scrimmage, looking downfield for an open receiver, than David Carr did all of last season.  I can't prove that, but I believe it to be true.
  • Either Ed Hochule has gotten off the juice or he is wearing a larger jersey this season.
  • There are obviously two more games after this, but at this point, I think Zach Diles is going to be around for a while.
  • I don't know what you prove by running a WR pass on the first play from scrimmage...in a preseason game.  All you've done is put regular season opponents on notice that you've got that one in your playbook.  Seems like a waste to me.  
  • Remind me why I have Dish Network again?  I lost nearly the entire first quarter due to a bad signal.  Went from the Cardinals' second play from scrimmage to the Schaub TD run.  This analysis is going to be a lot shorter than I had anticipated.  Kubes must have listened to Spencer T last week, who specifically called for the naked boot at the goal line.  
  • It's still early, but after giving up only 57 yards on 21 carries to Chicago last week, and getting off to a good start today, I'm pretty optimistic about the run defense.  Of course with Petey Faggins as a starting corner, I'm not sure why you'd bother running the ball against us.  And the pass rush?  From what I've seen, non-existent...and remember what I mentioned earlier about AZ's banged-up offensive line?
  • How high is too high to draft Adrian Peterson in my fantasy draft?
  • Antrell Rolle is a BIG corner.  But he doesn't have the chemistry with Dunta that Petey has, and that's 90% of the battle.
  • We will obviously have to limit mentions of this at some point, but while it's still the preseason: David Carr looked like an NFLQB, but Matt Schaub plays like an NFL QB.
  • Congress getting nothing done.  Tiger winning majors.  Kurt Warner fumbling.  Some things never change.
  • Couldn't agree more with the comments regarding Danny Clark.  He's playing like his jock's on fire.  Petey Faggins, on the other hand, is just getting burned.
  • Couldn't agree more with the comments regarding the no-calls on holding.  The tackles are holding on nearly every play.
  • The Scott Player lookalike moustaches in the crowd are priceless.  How could Texans' fans similarly honor our own Chad Stanley?  Our commenters should have a field day with that one.
  • Something tells me Kubes is going to enjoy watching the playaction completion from Sage to Jacoby over and over and over...that's how this offense is supposed to operate.
  • I'm going to ProTrade right now and mortgaging my house on Second Life to buy stock in Jacoby Jones.  Hopefully I have some money left over from buying put contracts on Petey Faggins.
  • That concludes the first half.  Not sure if I'll make it through the second half...Richard Scarry is calling.
