Activate him and have him be the backup to Dobbs this week. If Dobbs gets into trouble, I'd rather have Kyler coming off the bench than Clayton.
That's kind of what I anticipate will happen. I think that Dobbs gets the start and he'll play until it's extremely clear that the offense has no juice without him, but while we're maybe within 10-14 points.

Then Kyler comes in, the home crowd loses their collective short, and he gets a limited amount of snaps in a semi-competitive environment.

Yup...could be a halftime adjustment. The team and defense are usually still in games at that point. JG can say the team needed a little juice.

I think they hold him out at least 1 more week.
He needs all the first team reps before starting.
Unfortunately I think you’re right. If he was starting this week you would think they would be giving him all the first team reps, which they aren’t.

Don't put stadiums in the West Valley
I know SDS was poop, but even when the Cards had fun and watchable teams, the East Valley couldn't/wouldn't sell out the stadium. Whenever there was a rare Sun/Mon night game, local networks and other corp sponsors routinely had to purchase 5k+ tickets to prevent games being blacked out locally.

East Valley fans are more fickle, IMO...more of them are transplants and they have many more entertainment options, outside of sports.

Curious of the the Phoenix metro area will "catch up" to Glendale eventually? Has development, including residential development, started happening in between the stadium and the rest of phoenix?
There is development ALL OVER Phoenix Metro, but the west side and Glendale has a lot of open space. The east side is much more developed.

Yeah. Glendale is less dense/more working class than the SEV. Putting the stadium in Glendale would be like putting a stadium in Apache Junction.

Going all that way to watch Josh Dobbs keep it close for three quarters and then fail to cover.

I have club tickets and I give them away rather than wasting my Sunday driving to the west side.

Glendale used to be a bunch of farmers and rednecks...and still kind of is. I have a friend that we visit on that side of town and it's very different than the east valley.

It was a shame that the Cardinals couldn't get something done on the east side. Maybe they build their next stadium over on Fort McDowell.

Not surprising. The quality of coaching and effort by the players often keep the games competitive for a period of time. They can only sustain that for 30 to 45 minutes though. After that the large difference in talent level becomes apparent.

When Kyler returns, his talent and leadership ability may help mitigate that to an extent. We shall see.
