Arizona Cardinals Fly Around the Rest of the NFC West


The rest of the NFC West has completed the second round of preseason games and as position battles and roster considerations play themselves out, here's what is on the mind of the rest of the division:

49ers slaughters Packers 34-6: The Niners seem close to settling on a QB since JT O'Sullivan had a decent outing but the player making the most noise is rookie wideout Josh Morgan. Morgan a sixth round pick out of VA Tech has been making a name for himself through two games (9 receptions for 182 yards, 20.2 avg) and should be a name to remember come September 7th.

Seahawks come back to nip Bears 29-26 OT: The Seahawks feverishly fought back to win an exciting preseason game (if there is such a thing) in overtime against the Bears. The 'Hawks scored 17 points in the fourth behind the interception prone Charlie Frye and the surprisingly quick and powerful rookie Justin Forsett (15 carries 136 yards). Seattle's defense did a good job of blitzing the starting Bears' offense into submission and they take a look at a couple of the exotic blitzes.

Rams outlast Chargers 7-6: The Rams won a barn-burner of a game, but the real news in St. Louis is that Steven Jackson's holdout doesn't seem to be nearing an end and the head coach is now worried that it'll effect the regular season. They also added a couple of names to the injury list, although the biggest name is backup running back Brian Leonard (who will miss the rest of preseason). The actual game saw Bulger throw two picks in their first two drives but the defense bailed out a offense that was missing most of its stars.
