Arizona Cardinal Of The Week: Week Seven

New, comments

Andrew isn't around, so I'll do this too until he gets back.

After the Cardinals 22-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, there isn't really a lot of good to take out of the game. But a couple of players had a good performance.

Alan Branch - 5 Tackles, 2 Sacks, 1 Forced Fumble

If one person on the Defense stepped up on Sunday, it was Branch. He did a good job getting pressure on Hasselbeck, and he helped stuff the Seahawks rushing attack for most of the game. After looking like a draft bust for most of his time here, he played very well on Sunday, and it looks like the light bulb is finally flickering on for Branch.

Beanie Wells - 14 carries for 54 yards, Touchdown

Beanie scored his first Touchdown of the year (and the first Touchdown for the offense in around 10 quarters of play), and it looks like he has taken over as the main back after another fumble by Tim Hightower. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets the start on Sunday.

LaRod Stephens-Howling - 1 catch for 13 yards, 4 kickoff returns with a long of 71

This guy just continues to make plays. After being a 7th round draft pick and a longshot to make the team in 2009, he has emerged as a very dangerous kick returner, and he has the 2nd highest number of kick returns out of all of the returners so far this year, and he is averaging 27.7 yards per return right now which is 12th in the NFL, but many of the people who are above him in that category don't have very many returns so far this year (only 3 of them have more than 20 returns). LSH will probably go to the Pro Bowl as a kick returner this year after how well he has played.

Out of the people I can currently think of, these were the only three who I felt deserved to be here. Daryl Washington, and Greg Toler were also considered, I'll add them both to the poll if anyone wants to vote for them. And if you can think of anyone else who should be on this list, leave it in the comment section.
