I believe they do. EJ and Hightower have looked good, especially Hightower that kid is someone to watch. Their OL is much improved of course with the help with one our own old hogs. Don't underestimate the Cards, this is not the old Cards team. Their D is pretty solid too, Dockett, Dansby, Lavoy, Wison, etc. it's gonna be tough game.

Dont mean any harm but Seattle sucks so far this year and 49ers are better than last year...but not that great.

Yeah, if there's any way for a team of midgets to run around knee capping everyone at tonights game, then that's the only real possibility for a win-win.

It’s Monday afternoon and I’m still feeling great about yesterday’s win and the prospect of JC taking the mythical “next step” that we’ve all been anxiously awaiting. That said, euphoria is beginning to give way to reason. Thoughts of 4th string Rookie DB’s being burned by a veteran pro bowl caliber receiver aren’t psyching me up as much as they did on Sunday.

As fantastic as it was to see aggressive, successful play calling, the fact that it didn’t come against the ’85 Bears or the ’00 Ravens bares mentioning. After only two weeks, the Saints rank 26th against the run and 28th against the pass. I’d be positively less than enthusiastic if the game hadn’t been nearly so close as the final score would indicate and if we hadn’t absolutely dominated this team between the 20’s.

That brings us to week 3. As some of you know, the Cardinals are my “2nd team.” Don’t get me wrong, the difference between my loyalty to the Skins and the Card’s is something akin to the difference in love you feel for your first son, who looks exactly like you and has many of your same attributes, compared to the mere “affection” you have for your 2nd child, whose hair color is a shade never before seen in your family, and who happened to come along 9 months after your wife spent a drunken weekend at a friend’s bachelorette party in Las Vegas. Having said that, I still feel that I have a little more respect for the battered Arizona franchise than most and would like to point out some interesting facts as we head into our 3rd matchup of the season.

The Cardinals’ defense is GOOD. Through Week 2 (among teams that have played both games) the Cards are ranked 4th in the NFL in points allowed, 9th against the run and 14th against the pass. The secondary is a standout group with potential to be special. Rod Hood is a legit number 1 NFL CB (5 ints in ’07), Eric Green is a solid, if unspectacular #2 and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie playing at nickelback is a wild card. Safeties Adrian Wilson and Antrel Rolle (5 ints last year in limited time) combine to form one of the top duos in the league. I believe going up against a secondary of this caliber will give us a pretty good read on just how much progress JC and the rest of the offense have made. I will be surprised if we score more than 24 points and get out of this game without any turnovers by JC. If that happens, then I will have to seriously upgrade my expectations for this year.

This is no surprise to anyone paying attention, but the Cardinals’ offense can put up points with anyone in the league. The Cardinals are ranked 5th in the NFL through week 2 in total offense among teams that have played both of their games. They are 3rd in the NFL in passing yardage (no big surprise) and 17th in rushing. I think they made the obvious (correct) choice in naming Kurt Warner the starting QB. He has not thrown a pick yet through 2 games and if he is given time can light up a defense. The plus side is that the Oline has given up 5 sacks through 2 games and Warner’s M.O. is to get careless with the ball once you rough him up. The Cards have averaged less than 100 yds per game rushing as a team and I believe we have an opportunity to make them one dimensional early. Edgerrin James is still serviceable, but he’s no longer the player that he was in Indianapolis (nor does he have the same quality Oline…). While EJ had a respectable 3.8 yd per carry average last year, I think our D line should be able to shut him down.

Key Matchups:

DEFENSE

Andre Carter vs Mike Gandy

Gandy is a below average left tackle. He struggles versus speed rushers due to poor footwork and lack of quickness. This is a guy that Andre Carter should abuse. With Jason Taylor gimpy and matched up with a promising Levi Brown, AC needs to have a big game for us here. If he can generate a consistent pass rush on Warner, we may be able to get ahead early in the turnover battle.

OFFENSE

Chris Cooley vs Karlos Dansby

Dansby is a beast at LB. Athletically, he’s one of the few linebackers that I feel can cover Cooley man to man. If he’s able to limit CC’s effectiveness, that’s obviously going to disrupt our gameplan. If CC can win this matchup though, that could be decisive in our favor.

Prediction: Skins win 24-21 in a close game that could preview a possible post-season matchup.


The Cardinals have given up 43 points in two games and that was to the Seahawks and 49ers. We have only given up 40 and that was to the Super Bowl champs and the Saints. Where are you getting your numbers??

Re: Bleedburgundy's Week 3 Preview (Skins vs Cards)

I would love to see the Redskins offense follow up this weeks performance and really come out attacking against Arizona. I think our D can hold its own, and even help out the offense (I really was amazed that we gave up 24 points, 17 by the D). The Skins have to use this game to solidify the gains they made this week, and I think they will. I expect this to be the first wide margin win(10-14 pts), mainly due to the D. 4 sacks, 2 picks, and Warner benched by the 3rd Qtr. Oh and a 68yd bomb to Santana to start the game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OK, so I am basking in the glow of yesterday, but hey like people have said - its only Monday!

This is not the same Seattle team that we played last year. Their number one WR (McMullen) couldn't even make our team.

Re: Bleedburgundy's Week 3 Preview (Skins vs Cards)

The key will be the D-line and their pass rush. You get to Warner, don't let him get into rhythm, and we will be able to cancel out those great receivers of them. Last year we did a good job against Detroit and their potent passing game, and I hope we can do the same against the Cards.

The Cardinals have only given up 23 pts, 13 to SF and 10 to Miami, and they have scored 56, to our 26.

Still, I think comparing our opponents to theirs shows that the point stats may not mean as much as they otherwise might.

Re: Bleedburgundy's Week 3 Preview (Skins vs Cards)

The Cards have to travel across the country to get a Skins team that will show them what a real defense looks like. Just wear white on white again! We win with that combination.

Re: Bleedburgundy's Week 3 Preview (Skins vs Cards)

Cards are the real deal thus far. They have a rehabilitated Warner, who has a nice WR corp to throw too. THE Cards D gets the job done also. This game is going to tell us if JC is indeed turning it around and growing into the QB we know he has the potential of becoming. If Portis gets 125 yards rushing it will be a Skins win, as it will open up our passing to a superior defensive backfield. WE are not going to burn the Cards with too many 20+ yard plays on Sunday. Give em a good healthy dose of Portis and see what happens.
