Arizona Cardinals Week 17 bonehead award of the game

Who's that guy covering me again? Oh yeah, PP#21 - USA TODAY Sports

The last bonehead award of the year, Week 17, who gets the award for the Arizona Cardinals?

The final game of the season has come and gone for the Arizona Cardinals, who faced their division rival San Francisco 49ers yesterday afternoon. After taking a 6 - 0, the Cardinals offense failed to generate enough points to keep up with the 49ers, who put up 27 points and took the W home.

In the loss, there were moments for the Cardinals that translate into bonehead decisions. Below are my nominees for the bonehead award for week 17's performance.

LG Daryn Colledge, one of the veteran anchors on the line getting called for a false start.

Rookie WR Michael Floyd coughing up the ball while being tackled.

QB Brian Hoyer tossing the interception while targeting Larry Fitzgerald.

CB Patrick Peterson getting owned by WR Michael Crabtree most of the game.

Offensive coordinatror Mike Miller continuing to run undersized backs up the middle. I hope LaRod Stephens-Howling didn't send Miller a Christmas card with as many times as Miller fed him to the 300# + linemen.

Honorable mention, Coach Whisenhunt not playing Beanie Wells at all. Maybe Wells was sick/injured, but whatever the reason, not featuring your best back in the game at all is a poor choice.

However, in looking at the nominees for this less than prestigious award, my vote is for Patrick Peterson who, after being selected to the Pro Bowl as a CB, gave a stellar example of what not to do as a CB. What do you think? Let the world know in the poll below.
