Gamethread Highlights: Week Fourteen

Another win! A while ago, I was getting sick of doing these because it was just so frustrating to relive all the misery of some of the losses the Cardinals have had this year. But now, they have won five of their last six, and their latest win was over one of their most hated rivals, the 49ers.

In the comments, we look at some QB controversy, praising of the outstanding Defense Ray Horton is creating, and the joy of victory.

Also, the first gamethread was at 666 comments at one point. But Insomniac had to ruin it by posting after the game ended... One of us should have locked the comments to preserve that.

The Comments -

(Well done)

Calvisi said Kolb is going to the locker room

Oh my god...

Screw this O-line. Screw them all. They shouldn’t be paid another penny. Screw this game. Screw this season. Screw Colledge.

No, no, no

Not Skelton time. Please don’t be Skelton time.

Did you see the last 49ers game?

Right when Kolb was doing good too.

At least give him a chance…

I like Skelton

I just hate seeing Kolb go out right when he was starting to figure himself out.

Oh well. Watch Skelton own life.

And I'm back

Same old story. Defense is outstanding, offense can’t move the ball

Alright, let's all calm down

There’s no Team Skelton. That’s over with. Right now, there’s a Team "We want the Cardinals to win, and we don’t care if the winning QB is Dockett"

Can i be on team Dockett? I feel like that would be awesome

He's probably trying to make up some more excuses

"Umm, well, Skelton should be QB because, umm, Kolb has longer hair! Yeah, that’s a good reason, Kolb’s curly hair means he’ll throw bad because it’ll get in his face! Skelton for QB!"

(All that needed to be said after Larry made a Larry play)

something not right about the chemistry between kolb and the team

I realize he is hurt. But he is totally not participating on the sideline. He also did not participate at all when he was out those other games. Just stood around with his hands in his pockets.

by Drullin'OverDaCards on Dec 11, 2011 4:11 PM MST via mobile reply actions

He does have a concussion

so that might have something to do with it. Don’t know about the other games though

I've never been prouder to be a Cardinals fan than I am today

I, unfortunately, live in the Bay Area, and let me tell you, I have not seen more apathetic fairweather fans than here in the Bay Area. One second, everyone loves the Niners, but I GUARANTEE, that tomorrow they’ll hate them.

But here’s what I love about this win. This win is going to make the fans care even less about the Niners than they already do, and hopefully it’ll lead to their efforts to build a new stadium failing.

HOPEFULLY, this loss results in the 49ers moving to LA. At that point, we can all take a deep breath and LAUGH.

It feels SO good to beat the 49ers

It’s going to continue feeling good when we see them tumbling down power rankings.

Cardinals are impressing big time, knocking over two teams that have played some impressive football this year. My fairy-tale ending? Finishing the season one game behind the ’9ers and sneaking into the playoffs!
