    1) Most of the Cards players looked lifeless, drained & not ready to play until Dhop got drilled with a PF for whatever reason

    2) The Oline picked a bad time to have its worst game of the season

    3) The “Eraser” is going to be a very good LB.

    4) our defense is really poor on opening drives & at end of the half & end game situations. Too many scores & long drives

    5) Penalties, penalties, penalties! Teams that are in the bottom 5 in penalties struggle to make the playoffs. It needs to fixed ASAP

    6) #21. Do the Cards really want to franchise him for 1 more year? Imo an extension is out of the question. Time to move on

    7) yes the Seahags made big time adjustments on Murray

    8) our defense needs some new blood fast on the Dline starting in New England.

    9) yep that was a PI non call on Fitz

    10) the nitpicking & critiquing of every single play, player during & after games constantly has become comical. No wonder the world has gone mad & is upside down lol.

    11) despite not playing well, the Big Red still had a shot to pull that game out in the end

    12) Why doesn’t this offense attack more in the middle of the field? Hmmm. Between the numbers is where most great teams make their money

    13) We need another consistent weapon at WR

    14) Happy Thanksgiving everyone & God Bless you & your families

    Losing to Seattle in Seattle by 7 on a short week. I’m not ready to panic

    our defense up front needs to get healthy ASAP.

    Me either. Watching a bunch of young kids who are already playing with house money IMO lose a game they could have easily won is frustrating, but not life ending IMO.

    We need to win the NE, Philly, Giants, and Niners games though. That's 10-6 right there and a sure playoff spot.

    Get us in the tourney and anything can happen.

    I think Keim missed the boat when Dunlop was available for the taking and he passed letting Seattle snag him. This was one guy who just needed a change of scenery who still had gas left in the tank. The Hawks got him for a 7th and a backup center. It was well known Dunlop wanted out of Cincinnati before Seattle traded for him.

    Great observations. What really bothers me is how consistently slow this team starts. They seem to dominate when coming out early and jumping on a team (like vs Washington). To their credit I feel like they’ve generally played well in the 3rd quarter and made necessary halftime adjustments, but why can’t they do this in the first quarter? I’m convinced if we go up 7-0 or 10-0 on Seattle that they would be toast.

    Yes but why when they won the toss they chose to defend?

    Missing Phillips, Fotu, Peters, and Jones at the front of our defense gave Wilson too much space and time.

    The street free agent DL got eaten up in the run game. The number of Injuries at that position is crazy, and it seems like the rest of the year is going to be a battle just to keep bodies upright there.

    Isaiah Simmons needs to play. He is faster hoping on one foot than Hicks.

    Peterson was bad. Kirkpatrick was bad. It looks like they need a full reset at CB in the offseason, which ain’t cheap.

    Offensively, it really feels like Sweezy is done. If Murray is banged up it might be worth seeing Josh Jones in that spot.

    Murray was off because of the shoulder. He didn’t have the fastball.

    Christian Kirk should be extended. He looks really good in a solid #2 role now that Hopkins is drawing attention.

    That is why many of us want the team to draft two CB's with two of our first three picks.

    I thought so too. And I also thought wow, what a sign of disrespect to Larry for not getting the call there. Larry in his prime gets that call. Hopkins likely gets it now if he was the receiver on the play. It's not like the NBA where legend status earns you the benefit of the call 99% of the time.

    Only three dudes worth a 1st rounder. Also, it is going to be tough to pass on some of these edge dudes available.

    I cannot describe how disappointing that loss was given the stakes even two days later. Now looking at 3rd place with two against their nemesis the Rams. This is one game compared to Lions, Panthers and Dolphins stings more.

    Brutal feeling of Same Ol Cardinals performance to let a reeling team sqeek by for division title.
