Everyone on this team played terrible today, the only players that should get immunity are LaRon Stevens-Howling and Daryl Washington. Other than that as everyone else sucked. OL continues to struggle they gave up 7 sacks. Cardinals need to evaluate the LT position possibly consider Nate Porter, coming and replacing D'Anthony Batiste. Paris Lenon was disappointing, and I think age is starting to catch with him 34 years old it starting to show. He got a nice INT, but he still was mainly responsible for giving up a huge chunk of yards in the running game.
If you didn't notices most of those runs where on his side. He wasn't able to get down there and congest the holes, Adrian Peterson practically had his way with this offense amounting 153 yard and a TD. Not saying Paris Lenon was entirely at fault, but he plays a very important position that is suppose to contain the RB. I just hope he can hold up the rest season, because that is a position that needs to be evaluated next off-season.
John Skelton looked mediocre today, there where many plays that he left on the field, and scoring opportunities that we missed. This team could have very easily had 30+ points, he has to be more effective in 3rd down situation and in the redzone. Surprisingly, Skelton put up pretty decent numbers, 25/36 69% 262 yards, TD and 1 INT, it simply wasn't enough to win.
Offensive play calling deserves a huge portion of the blame, Skelton's numbers look good because he was playing too much small ball. WAY too many short-intermediate, and check down passes. We rarely saw anything thrown down field. That play-calling may suit Kevin Kolb, because he lacks the deep ball and the WCO which relies heavily on that, but Skelton is a different QB he is a traditional pocket-passer, and more use to spreading the WRs. It was only till the near the end of the game when Skelton had to take over, and OC Mike Miller called plays that he was conformable with. It was disappointing because we stalled on plays that we could have easily converted.
Good news is that we play San Francisco 49ers at home, John Skelton has yet to lose a home game. Hopefully that doesn't jinx it, but I think the way the Niners have been playing, I think we can come up with an upset here. If we can contain Frank Gore we'll be ok.
