So... that was a pretty ugly game, wasn't it? The Arizona Cardinals embarrassed themselves on national TV last night as they fell to the Tennessee Titans, 32-27. The offensive line was a joke, the quarterbacks looked pedestrian and although the defense was good at time, they often made their mistakes as well.
Still, there has to be some bright spots from this game, right? Let's look at a few of them after the jump and take a poll.
William Powell's 26-yard run was pretty nice. In fact, he looked great all night long. He broke some tackles, score a touchdown and best of all, he made a strong case for making this roster. His long run, in particular, was very eye opening and it had the terrible announcing duo of Chris Berman and Trent Dilfer in the edges of their seats.
Another great play was when Kevin Kolb aired out a pass deep to a receiver that had been forgotten about for most of the night -- Larry Fitzgerald. Somehow, Fitz got behind the defense and caught a pass for 53 yards. After that, he and Kolb got into a bit of a groove, but it didn't last long enough.
Daryn Colledge had just as large of an impact in the receiving game as many of the wide receivers and tight ends. He caught a batted up pass and brought it forward for two yards, setting the Cards up for a first down. That marks two offensive linemen that Kolb has now successfully completed as pass to this preseason.
Jay Feely had a decent night for the special teams, especially when he drilled a 49-yard field goal through the uprights. Yep, it's a pretty sad day when you mention the kicker on a positive note for anything less than a 55+ yard FG.
I am probably forgetting something, so please, if you remember a play that I quite obviously missed, mention it in the comments below. The bottom line is that after watching this game, there are quite a few more negatives than there were positives to look forward to.
