Skins vs the Cards Pregame Thread

Its here!

1. Hope Alex Smith doesnt need time to warm up like Cousins needed. He shouldn't, but more concerned the WR core will. Someone from the WR needs to emerge quickly.

2. Chris Thompson and Jordan Reed...no play during the Preseason...2 HUGE factors on Offense that we need to win. Hope they ready.

3. Must win week 1? I think the Cards could be an OK team this season but not a playoff team...This on paper should be a win. With the slow starts in the past and a pending schedule that gets rougher as the season goes on....We need this one, NFC game too!

4. Cards turnover defense this preseason has been scary...we brought Smith here to protect the ball. On the road, we cant turn it over. This could make or break this game.

5. AP vs his old team. I think we could have an advantage here..Hoping for a big debut.

That's a good question. I think this game is bigger for Jay Gruden than any other opener.

Re: Skins vs the Cards Pregame Thread

I'll chalk this one up as a loss as we'll start slow like always under Gruden. A cross country trip is always tough and we'll see sloppy tackling by the LB's and secondary, clock mismanagement and pissed away timeouts. I just question whether Gruden will have this team ready to play. I do hope that our d-line can and should be able to make some plays. If we're to win they have to get after china doll Bradford. I just see Johnson as the difference. He's a great player which we have no answer for, especially out of the backfield.

Also Fitzgerald is in the slot, who's going to cover him?

The Cards have many more question marks, the only thing they have going for them is being at home.

Re: Skins vs the Cards Pregame Thread

I'm not the least bit concerned about Alex, Chris, Jordan, and Adrian playing well right out of the chute. Those guys were born ready.

As for the Cards turnover defense, just keep Perine on the bench. I'm not making a joke about this. He could kill our chances for a win with an inopportune fumble. Let's see if Gruden is smart enough to avoid trouble by not risking a Perine fumble.

Everything in our recent history says we lose this game in heartbreaking fashion, regardless of the stats, position strengths, ability of individual players.

I will watch it anyways, and hope the Skins and Gruden get past the Week 1 blues.

I'm more worried about David Johnson running wild.
Those big guys on the DLine are not ready to go 4 quarters.
We might see a total defensive collapse in the second half.

Ill be on the fire Greg Manusky quick if Johnson runs wild. Cards Oline isn't that great.

Im serious about Manusky...there less excuse for him versus Jay and the Offense. We have the talent and its healthy especially in the front 7.

When it comes to Performance on Defense...Preston Smith has no more fuckin excuses...he has the guys around him that should lift his game. Everybody has stated he is the man....prove it

I think that's where Settle's preseason performance can actually help us. He played a LOT of snaps, and should be solid in rotation. It may be best off having him play near the full game with Payne, Ionaidis and Allen all rotating around him.

Re: Skins vs the Cards Pregame Thread

I think we win this one 24 to 17. Slow start by both teams, we then take the lead early in the second half, and give away one stupid TD in the 4th on blown coverage/missed tackles.

One thing I hate seeing on the depth chart: Jamison Crowder will be returning punts? ... Don't do that to us. Don't that to him...

With the QB drama in the rear-view mirror I think the Skins come out strong.

Re: Skins vs the Cards Pregame Thread

I think we are all shocked - Skins 31 Cards 13. AP gets revenge by running for 140 yards and 3 TDS. Smith is efficient and throws for 1 (to Reed). Bradford sacked 4 times. Johnson doesn’t get to wear down our D because they’re too far behind in the second quarter.

Doesn’t hurt to dream.

Great post man. Agree with all of this. And yes, looking at the schedule we got a code red rite off the bat. Lol. Seriously we need to beat the Cardinals if we are going to move forward.
