Arizona Cardinals vs Seattle Seahwaks: Five Hard to Find Positives

New, comments

Were there any?

Christian Petersen

After another brutal loss to a division rival it is hard to find any positives. Yet again Palmer threw multiple picks and yet again the offense failed to do much of anything.

Michael Floyd:

Floyd had a good game and should have had an even better one but suffered a few seemingly blatant PI calls. This morning I woke up and was still upset on the no call Seahawk Safety Earl Thomas got away with a blatant PI by holding down Floyds hand. Floyd finished the day with 6 receptions on 10 targets with 71 yards receiving.

Rob Housler:

Houlser has been the trendy pick for a break out player of the game and finally tonight he made some noise with a team high 7 receptions on 7 targets for 53 yards. While he didn't break anything big he got open and caught everything that was thrown his way. Hopefully this is beginning of a new trend where our pass receiving TE actually catches a few passes and does some damage.

Calais Campbell:

After a big scare in San Fransisco, Campbell was able to play and he played very well often getting into the backfield and causing disruptions. On the day he had 8 total tackles, 7 of them solo and a TFL. Campbell looks as if he is returning to form and has been playing very well as of late. Hopefully with an easier schedule coming up his dominant play will lead to bigger dividends.

John Abraham:

The performance we had all been waiting for finally came. Abraham dominated Seattle's tackles thoroughly collecting 2 sacks and forcing two fumbles, one which was recovered by the Cardinals. Abraham was also a constant source pressure put the team in a good position to stay competitive.

Jay Feely:

Most of the time when you mention a kicker it's not a good thing. Feely however has responded well to the preseason criticism he got and again was reliable and perfect on the day. He made all 3 FGs and even nailed a long of 52. His one kickoff that was returned was pinned deep by special teams.

The Arizona Cardinals still have a long way to go before they begin to compete in the NFC West and after a brutal two game stretch the schedule does lighten up with two winnable games. Hopefully Arizona can capitalize and get this team back into contention.
