Gamethread Highlights: Week Eight

If you ever wanted to see a tale of two halves, this is it. The Cardinals dominated the first half, and the joy in the gamethread showed it. Then the second half happened and the Cardinals seemingly forgot that football games take 60 minutes not 30 minutes, and the gamethread showed that too.

We also got plenty of Skelton time debates.

Now, after I compile all of these highlights, I am going to get the big bowl of Halloween candy for tonight, and eat it in the tub while sobbing profusely in rage.

Happy comments from the happy first half -

good running

3 carries—-15 yards
not bad

No more night. I have seen the light. Let it shine on bright.

(Guessing that refers to Kolb)

Beanie looks good so far

He may get dinged up a lot, but at least he is showing he is tough enough to play through it.

When the Cardinals are up by 3 TD’s:

"Well, this game is pretty good. No one really expected it to be like this. Not bad."

When the Ravens comeback to tie it:

What I've learned:

Coach Whiz isn’t good. We need to get someone else.

Mike Miller is awful, and should be happy he even has a job in the NFL.

Kolb screwed up big-time. Minus the TD pass to Doucet, he’s just not cutting it, and it’s already half-way through the season. Enough with the "Not having enough time to learn the Playbook". He’s getting paid millions of dollars to win, and he’s not doing that.

The John Skelton chants are going to be even louder over the next week. 2010 all over again, and I think we’ll see him eventually. Not saying this is a good idea, just pointing out the similarities.

The season’s officially over.

I am not so sure, he just surrounds himself with idiots.

I liked Kolb

And wanted him since early last season, but even I agree that it was a panic move. They needed to make a lot of noise during the Off-season, and this definitely did that.

I always said we shoulda gone for Orton...

Not that he’s any better, but he woulda come hella cheaper, and we could have justified canning him after this season to get Luck. Whiz and the FO are in far far far deeper than they bargained for by hitching their wagon to a lame mare like Kolb.

Right when Whis arrived…Coincidence?? Big Ben said he did not like what Whis tried to do with his game. Leinart resisted the changes Whis tried to make with his footwork, and now we are hearing about changes being made to Kolb’s footwork.

Maybe Whis thinks he is some QB guru when he is clearly not.

You've repeated this 20 point underdog line a couple of times...

At no point were the Ravens favored by 20 points. The line was 12 at kickoff.
People like you are the problem in Arizona. The whole, "well we lost, but we were big underdogs and were reasonably competitive" mentality is the reason Whisenhunt isn’t on the hot(ter) seat.
This team is an utter laughingstock. The only reason this game was close was the unbelievable breaks the Cardinals got. Punt return, turnover inside Ravens 10, questionable calls from the officials that negated Ravens turnovers on the tying drive, etc.
Stop drinking the kool-aid. This team blows.

No. It wasn't.

At no point were the Cardinals 20 point underdogs. 13 maybe. Certainly not 20.
You might find it easier to get your points "throught" if you don’t make gross exaggerations.

Another Bad Loss!

For the record, I was against trading for Kolb and by now I think it could be classified as another mistake by the organization! To make things worse, I watched the rookie from minnesota get another start and he looked so much better than Kolb’s finest day in a cardinals uniform so, to keep saying he needs time to mesh with his teammates is bullshit! I tried really hard to give him the benefit of of my doubts but he isn’t the special QB the cardinals need to go to the next level. I don’t care what anyone else thinks, Skelton could start these games and have a equal or better QB rating that what Kolb has shown. I wish Whiz and the entire staff as well as Graves too are fired as well.

Let me first start by saying, wow what a great game by both sides. There’s absolutely no way the Ravens deserved to win. But the Cardinals are a really good team with a solid defense, and I can see you guys getting much better in the future. This is a game that could’ve gone either way.
