Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals was one of the top teams in the league with a healthy Carson Palmer under center.  Then he tore his ACL and Drew Stanton entered.  Stanton did not look like a quarterback who could lead a team to a Super Bowl, and then he got injured with a knee sprain.

Arizona has had to resort to their third-string quarterback, Ryan Lindley, who got punished by the Seattle Seahawks Sunday night, and will now be starting their fourth-string quarterback, Logan Thomas.

The Cardinals seem to be on the verge of losing control of their season after their game against Seattle last week, and Arizona would be the next team on my list that I would want Green Bay to face.

Arizona has a defense that, in my opinion, many people overrate.  While the Cardinals only give up 18.6 points a game, they give up the third-most passing yards a game (264.2), and rank 24th in total yards allowed (366.4).

It seemed the Arizona defense garnered a lot of attention after their performance two weeks ago against the Rams.  They gave up six points and held St. Louis in check all game.  Many media outlets seemed to just ignore the fact that they played well against the 6-9 Rams, and it was a mistake to do so.

After watching Arizona get drubbed by Seattle last week, I’m convinced that this Cardinals team doesn’t have the tools to produce any kind of points on the offensive side of the ball, and will get picked apart by an elite offense.

Regardless of how sluggish the Packers offense has looked the past few weeks, I am convinced the Cardinals could not produce enough pressure on Rodgers, which would allow Aaron to have his way with this overrated defense.  I may be in the minority, but sign me up for a game against Arizona.
