Gamethread Highlights: Week Sixteen

That was rough.... Horrible start for the Cardinals, then they rally to come within a score of beating the Bengals, but they could not get that score after Early Doucet fell down. Horrible way to lose.

And now, here are some highlights from the gamethread.

Also, I am going to post less comments in here than I normally do because I am having issues copying anything into here using visual view mode. Everything goes directly to the top of the page instead of the area I copy it into, which is normally the bottom of the page with these. Just doing less because I already spend too much time on these things, I don't want to double how long it takes until everything is fixed.

Here is the roll call to start this thing off again

This day just keeps getting worse

Now those terrible Miller Lite commercials are back. When are they going to realize that they’re not funny?

"A Cardinals player touched a player from another team?

How dare he! Penalty!"

the Palmer rule, or the Brady rule, can't remember which one....

"Well, I liked how our guys got after it during practice this week. I thought we came out with good intensity. But then, we made a few mistakes and you can't do that and be a good football club. We'll look at the film and learn from our mistakes and get ready for this weekend." Whiz after any game.....

It's sort of like the Santonio Holmes TD for me

It’s an amazing TD, but I’m going to hate seeing it for a long, long time.

Just like the Santonio TD

those two will be played over an over again. And both of those ended our seasons

I turned it off at the end of the 1st Half

But of course I’m back.

Doucet, when you return to Arizona

You may find your house is burned to the ground.

I'm thinking of buying a Doucet jersey

Throwing it on the freeway, dousing it in gasoline, burning it, taking the ashes, and feeding it to my dog. But I don’t want to do that to my dog.

All in all

We have a lot of reason to hope for the future. The defense is young and can easily be a Top 5 defense next season. We’ll see how the QB situation comes around, but I think with a full off-season, Kolb and Skelton will be a lot, lot better. Hopefully Haley returns, but if not, we’ll see where that takes us. And Coach Whiz is our coach for the future.

Good job by the Cardinals. We really have to credit them for a lot. I would’ve given up and gone to the locker room after halftime.
