This makes me feel better about our D

An excerpt from the sando blogs. Eases my mind about our D. hawn from Phoenix writes: Sando, you called the Cards' defense vulnerable. Without the two fumbles deep in Rams territory, this wasn't even a game. The Rams had to throw 50 times to get 250 yds passing and the Cardinals held Jackson to 3.7 yds per carry.
