They still are not going to show any indication of their actual offense

    It's PRE-season. Doesn't mean a thing towards our regular season.

    They should do away with it (my opinion). It's a bunch of hooey.

    Let the teams come in and practice three or four weeks, then play games.

    No, I just think it's funny that some try to embellish on what he did. He was 6/7 (not 7/7) for 44 yards and the lasting image from the game was him nose-diving on his final play for the night.

    That will happen regardless of what the game looks like

    You are doing the polar opposite and trying to make it sound worse than it was. He woulda have been 7/7 if not for the rookie mistake running out of bounds. he had a great performance in that game and he had no option but to fall down on third down. he showed poise, good decision making, athleticim and accuracy. It was a great showing for a rookie on a 2 yard line and to act like it wasnt is just being a troll.

    then he shat the bed completely in week 2 but again, just like with rosen, the fall down play you blame him for was all on the blocking and game 2 murray had no chance no matter how good he is.

    Imo, they will add some wrinkles, they will just add a few things to the 6 or 7 plays they've ran in preseason so far. Maybe some motion or reverses, something like that? I will be shocked if they run anything that is being practiced for the real games. No way of knowing really if we haven't been to a practice & seen it ran lol.

    Penalties killed any chance we had at a drive against the Raiders, take away those & a couple passes weren't a little overthrown & we may have not had all the bad game for Murray discussion?

    He had to nose dive, it was a bad snap. Thought he showed a lot of poise being backed up to our own 2 yd line, first series of his Cardinal career. Had KJ not stepped out of bounds....................? May have led us to points on his first drive? I hope he leads us on an 80 yd td drive first series against Detroit.

    I agree with you on the defense, I wanna see something positive against the Vikings, like make a tackle in the backfield & stop giving up 6, 8 & 6 yd gains to start the game. The offense I'm not worried about, KK can call plays, this offense will move the ball when the games count. He is very creative, when the NFL DC's start catching up a little, he will throw new stuff at them, he's damn good at scheming plays against defenses. Not a doubt in my mind he will be successful at calling plays in the NFL. Scheming plays & adding stuff is why the man never sleeps & is at the office every day before the sun comes up.

    You're right, 6-7 but KJ stepped out of bounds on what was a long first down reception to keep the drive alive. Only problem is he can't touch the ball first, he did, made the catch though, ran a nice route. Had he not stepped out, that drive would've continued & we may have scored points? Lot of poise to move us as far as he did, considering we started at our own 2 yd line. He had to dive on the ball, it was a bad snap, better than a turnover. This kid is talented, just sit back & watch him do his thing, he will have a few growing pains for sure, but I assure you he will wow us more often than not.

    I think people misrepresent preseason by saying it is meaningless. Yes, the final scores and record is meaningless because you are playing a variety of players, many of whom will not make the roster.

    I do think it is naive to ignore how your starters, particularly the offense, play in preseason though. If they play great it does not mean they will play great in regular season. However if they play bad in most or all of preseason it does give me some level of concern. When I watch preseason and see an offense that consistently can't move the ball it's less likely for that offense to light it up regular season.

    If we see some life out of our starting offense in game 3 and 4 I will feel better about our prospects for the season opener.

    Only thing I hope to see is better O line play....better protections...reading blitz and having guys READY and actually blocking
    They were caught with their pants down last game
    They were not ready for any blitzing
    If the o line looks better I’m good
    If not...cards are dead

    1. If preseason games aren't important, why would we spend so much time talking about them.

    2. Come to think of it, why are we talking so much about them?

    Hmmm... Joined 2 days after the KK hire, blind faith in ability, intimate knowledge of sleep and work schedule. Are you really KK, or maybe his mom? :D

    I didn't say anything about Kyler's performance being bad against the Chargers. Hard to argue with 6/7 for 44 yards on very limited playing time. But there's no need to embellish it and say he was REALLY 7/7. No he was not. The WR stepped out and came back in and was first to touch the ball so it did not count. Counting it is basically like saying he didn't get sacked on the aforementioned play because the snap was premature. Uh, still counts regardless of the snafu on the snap. ;) :semantics:

    you're just being obtuse for the sake of having an argument. You know what people mean, yet you choose to nitpick it so you have something to argue.
