Gamethread Highlights: Week Five

Because of how ugly this loss was, I am going to do something a little different today. There were plenty of amusing comments over the two gamethreads. And if you want to check them out just click here and here. But today, because this was such a bad loss I am just going to go through all of the postgame rants and compile a few of my favorites on here.

And now, I hope you enjoy the highlights from this gamethread filled with anger. Anger directed at the coaches, Graves, everyone wearing a Cardinals uniform, ourselves for watching this game. Also some comments from the @FauxKenWhiz twitter account wound up filling up the gamethread.

The anger from the gamethread in all its glory -

Kolb is not our guy

KOLB WAS HYPED! I TRIED TO GIVE HIM A CHANCE, BUT HE SUCKS! SURE WE ARE BETTER IN THE PASSING GAME THIS YEAR……. YOU COULD OF PLAYED QB AND WE WOULD OF BEEN BETTER. THIS GUY ISNT A FRANCHISE QB. You can just tell when you watch him play. He is Jake Delhome or Brady Quin. He has flashes of good plays but when it comes down to it, he isnt anything special.

What I've learned:

-Kolb has been pretty bad today
-Fitz hasn’t been himself, but hasn’t been targetted much either
-The O-line hasn’t played terrible, but have screwed up on some big plays
-The Defense has played good minus that disaster of a 1st Quarter
-The Coaching Staff has been awful all year. Next week’s our bye. If anyone’s going to get fired, it’s going to be after this game.

Forgot to mention

That the Coaching Staff has really held the team back too. But to be fair, the talent on the team isn’t outstanding either.

Nope, I have to continue to support him, just a lot of what I said in there has come to fruition, so I thought I would blow the trumpet a little bit.

Just for Fun.

Also it is not like my alternative (Gabbert) has done much better.

Hahahaha

Who was that guy named "Skii" making those ridiculous comments about how he was the next Kurt Warner? What a laugh!

He won't though

Just random thinking, if the Cards took the kickoff for a touchback, and then just punted on first down, it might have been a more productive first quarter than what we had.

Plus we totally screwed them in the Luck running

Who’s the winner now?!

Coach Whiz:

"We played a good game against a very talented team. Minus the 1st Quarter, we played well. We just need to work out a few minor adjustments here and there, and I think we could be on to something."

This isn't even a rebuilding year

For a rebuilding year, you’d need to tear everything apart and start again. We didn’t do that.

rebuilding on the run!

Kolb didn't even play decent against a terrible Minnesota secondary

I lost all hope today.

And for all the Kurt Warner comparisons, the difference is, we didn’t lose a Pro Bowl CB and 2nd Round pick for Warner, and we didn’t give him a 5-year, $60 million contract.

I supported Kolb, but I’ve more or less given up today. He should’ve dominated this game.

I'll end with this

I’m always optimistic (Sometimes too much), and when I’ve given up, you know we’re screwed (I doubt I’d even give up on a win-less team).

I want Kolb to succeed, but he’ll have to work extra hard to win me back. He has no excuse for today. He should’ve owned the Vikings Defense.

He’ll also have to win back every Cardinals fan in existence, because I think it’s safe to say he lost a lot of support today. Kevin Kolb, we like you, and we support you, but you need to play better. A lot better.

I say we blame all of our anger and problems at Kurt Warner, if he didn’t come here and give us a taste of greatness. We would totally be okay with where we are right now

And now, some Twitter posts by FauxKenWhiz-

- Gonna be live tweeting during the game tomorrow. Hope the NFL doesn't fine me to much

- I'm so glad we gave up DRC and a 2nd for Kolb

- we're gonna try! But you gotta remember, there's no logic to my play calling. I close my eyes and pick a play. Explains a lot, right?

- We passed on Adrian Peterson for Levi Brown.

- good thing they don't let me drink on the sidelines. I would have started already...

- Can we start working out Andrew Luck yet?

- I would yell and scream, but I have a phobia of ending up on YouTube like Dennis Green

- Kolb to me on the sidelines, "Oh wait, the game started??...WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME?!?"

- I'm gonna be honest people...this may have something to do with AP being on my Fantasy Team. Does that make me an ass?

- We miss you Kurt

- When we go in at half time, I'm gonna be red in the face!! Not from the yelling, but from the crying

- Ugh, i'm starving. I gotta grab something to eat. I'll be back later. Who wants to take over play calling for me? ...Anyone?

- I don't always go for it on 4th, but when I do, I make the worst call possible

- I use a Magic 8 Ball. Why? Is that not what other coaches do?

- I hope I don't embarrass myself later when I drunk dial Matt Leinart later tonight

- Would it be in bad taste to do my victory lap around the stadium?

- Maybe I should have coached more instead of tweeting during the game...oh well, it was fun. Tweeting, not the game.

- I hate Jimmy Fallon as much as I hate Matt Leinart, & I cut him for Derek "I throw the ball 650 mph, but to the other team" Anderson
