Cardinals vs. Rams: Daryn Colledge talks about giving up sacks

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

After two horrendous games by the Cardinals O-line is Colledge showing that he is the voice of the offensive line?

"It’s going to be on everybody but we on the offensive line will take the weight of that," Colledge said. "We have big enough shoulders. We’re kind of quiet soldiers. When things are going good it’s about the skill guys. When it goes bad, it’s on us and we know that and that’s what we signed up for. That’s what we get paid to do. That’s our job." - Following the loss to the Rams

And this is something more or less to his previous statement, We may not be the prettiest girl at the dance, nor can we dance, but we still win.

He's really put the pressure on he and his peers to step up their efforts. 17 games in two straight games is positively unacceptable even if it's linemen whom were undrafted, rookies, and guys who were disliked by their previous teams.

While I'm not saying Colledge is the best player on our line, cause heck, he missed a block that could have helped Kolb get one more second to make a deep pass to Fitzgerald for a possible TD. But he has shown to me that he is dedicated to improving, and that he wants the O-line to follow suit. Lyle Sendlein is still the best player on the line and I'm sure his play inspires the other guys on the line and that he is the heart and soul, but Colledge is certainly vying for the respect of his mates on the front line.
