I like these kinds of games! I became an NFL fan watching the Late 90s Tampa Bay Bucs, and yesterday Chase Edmonds looked a lot like Warrick Dunn. The defense wasn't as smothering as the Sapp-Brooks-Barber combo, but it got the job done against a Giants offense that seemed to be lacking a top-shelf receiving target, for some reason. They should try and find one of those guys. Right now, what we can say for sure is that we're good enough to hang with the worst teams in the league about 100% of the time. I'm a little surprised and disappointed that we can't really put one or two of these teams away. Strip away the woulda-coulda-shouldas, and we've still had big losses to the good teams we played. The next step forward for this team is to stay within a score into the fourth quarter against teams like New Orleans and San Francisco. We might end up stealing one or two of those, too. Chase Edmonds - Between his rushing and receiving, Chase accounted for a staggering 61% of the Cards' total offensive production. It was a true indictment of the general manager that we didn't have another back to step in and help carry the load when the questionable David Johnson bowed out after three snaps. Chandler Jones - This guy was an absolute animal out there. His game wasn't perfect, but he was one of the only consistent contributors to the defense, playing mainly over the right tackle. Jones already has 4 forced fumbles on the season to go with 8.5 sacks. Justin Pugh - A fairly standout day for the offensive line, and Pugh was the one that I noticed the least. Fingers crossed that this guy stays healthy, because if we can make him the third- or fourth-best OL in the next two seasons, this could be a really good group. David Johnson - Absolute fantasy assassin this week. Three snaps! He should be stuffed in a garbage disposal. Keim will probably add 3 years and $45 million guaranteed to his contract this week. Tremaine Brock - It increasingly seems like opponents are going to test the Cards' defense horizontally. Our defensive backs are just not good enough to follow receivers and tight ends for long, especially when they get inside leverage. Brock was caught out of position too often. Johnathan Bullard - Bullard should not be playing 46% of our defensive snaps. He shouldn't be playing any defensive snaps. Did the Future of Football Arrive? What an ugly day for football around the NFL. An offense can't be the future of football if it can only be played in ideal conditions. Murray and Kingsbury keep doing just enough to overcome lulls in productivity and brain farts to pull out a win. After the soul-crushing misery of last season, it's pretty fun — even if it's just the Giants.
