Arizona Cardinal of the Week: Week 10

New, comments

Although the Cardinals didn't impressively beat the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, there were some players from the game that stood out and now will be nominated for their efforts. Let's also give a shout-out to Beanie Wells for running away with COTW award last week and gaining 52% of the votes. He's on the list again this week and let's see who else is with him.

Anquan Boldin -Since Boldin sat out against the Bears three weeks ago to rest a sprained ankle, he's had the best strech of games this year. There's more pop in his step and he's come through when the Cardinals needed first downs. In the last two games Boldin has 16 catches for 208 yards and a touchdown.

Kurt Warner - For the last three weeks Warner has been on the list of nominations. And what do you expect after not throwing any interceptions in that span and leading the Cardinals to victories? The most impressive part of Sunday's game is that in only 2 quarters of action, Warner threw for 203 yards, 2 touchdowns, and had a passer rating of 146.3.

Beanie Wells - Wells had another impressive game but didn't live up to the expectations I set earlier in the week. It could be the early fumble or the lack of offense in the second half but either way Wells was able to run the ball efficiently. In the game, Wells carried the ball for 74 yards and powered his way into the end zone to get his 4th touchdown of the year. It's only a matter of time before Beanie breaks the 100 yard mark.

Tim Hightower - Hightower should play the Rams every week because they have produced his only(2) 100 yard rushing games of his career. The most notable run was the 50 yarder he broke early in the game, that eventually led to a Cardinals touchdown. Hightower had 100 rushing yards for 7.9 yard average on the day.

Gerald Hayes - Had Steven Jackson not broke a 48 yard run late in the game, the Cardinals defense would've held him to 68 yards at 2.9 YPC. Obviously we can't play the should've could've game but the larger part I want everyone to see is that the return of Gerald Hayes had a huge impact against the run. He only had 3 tackles but he disrupted a lot of plays and swarmed Jackson any chance he had. Besides, most defenders can't tackle Jackson the first time anyway.

Adrian Wilson - Wilson had 5 tackles, 1 pass defense and also picked off a pass on Sunday. Wilson didn't get beat in coverage at any point and was usually lurking around the line of scrimmage. Wilson's size gives the Cardinals a lot of helping defending the run.

As always, if you feel anybody should be added to the list just drop a comment. Who did you vote for and why?
