The Arizona Cardinals ran a whopping 79 offensive plays against the Rams. The Rams had 57 plays. Who was in the game? There is no surprise to start with on offense. The whole offensive line was in the game the whole time, as was quarterback Ryan Lindley.
Not even Larry Fitzgerald played every down. He was in for 76 plays, while Andre Roberts was for 66, Michael Floyd for 53 and LaRon Byrd for three.
Rob Housler saw a lot of time, playing 66 snaps. Fellow tight end Jeff King was in for 33 and Jim Dray two.
William Powell had the most time in the backfield with 39 plays, followed by Beanie Wells with 30, Anthony Sherman with 21 and LaRod Stephens-Howling with only six.
Defensively, Kerry Rhodes and Paris Lenon never came off the field defensively.
Patrick Peterson and Daryl Washington each played 56 snaps, thus missing only one play, as did William Gay.
At OLB, Sam Acho was in for 47 plays, Quentin Groves for 46, Reggie Walker for 20, Zack Nash for one and then Stew Bradley (playing inside) spelled Washington for one play.
In the defensive backfield, Greg Toler saw 24 plays, Justin Bethel was in for two (one of which he allowed a touchdown) and Michael Adams played one snap. Adrian Wilson saw 31 plays, while Rashad Johnson and James Sanders each saw 11 plays.
On the line, Darnell Dockett and David Carter were in for 42 plays. Dan Williams was in for 30. Ronald Talley played 14 snaps, Vonnie Holliday got 13 and Nick Eason played nine.
We can see here that Jamell Fleming, after a promising start, has declined a bit and Greg Toler has surpassed him. The fact that Bethel got on the field on defense was surprising.
