first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact SBNation – NFL power rankings, Week 4: Bears, Patriots rising #25(last week #28)I don’t know how much longer Carson Palmer’s going to last behind that offensive line, especially in Bruce Arians’ pass-happy offense. He’s been sacked nine times and has thrown four picks and three touchdowns so far this season. Arizona moves up by virtue of other teams, worse teams, sliding far in the rankings. NFL.com – Week 4: Bears, Saints ascend; 49ers plummet#24 (last week #19)Carson Palmer and the Cardinals’ offense went right down the field on the opening drive in New Orleans, passing five times and running it six while converting on both third downs and finishing up with a score. But it was all downhill from there. Arizona struggled in protection, struggled to protect the football and struggled in the secondary. If the Cardinals can steal a road win in Tampa Bay this week, they’ll have a chance to put together a nice stretch, as they’ll be at home for four of five after that. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling ESPN – 2013 NFL Power Rankings: Week 4#22 (last week #21)Carson Palmer converted 3 of 11 third-down drop-backs Sunday, targeting Larry Fitzgerald once (dropped pass). Sunday was the second straight week Fitzgerald was targeted only once on third down. 0 Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Sports Illustrated – NFL Power Rankings Week 3#21 (last week #21)Over the course of a 48-hour span starting Sunday, the Cardinals lost three linebackers (Sam Acho, Lorenzo Alexander and Alex Okafor) to season-ending injuries. I’m not ready to blame anyone for this turn of bad luck, but if we find out later that John Skelton broke a mirror on his way out of town, it would not be a surprise. Brian Billick – Fox Sports Net – NFL Power Rankings Week 3#24 (last week #23)I don’t care how undersized he is or how unimpressive his 40-yard dash time was … Tyrann Mathieu is going to be a star in this league. His ability to create turnovers reminds me of Charles Tillman in Chicago. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The Arizona Cardinals suffered a 31-7 blowout loss at the hands of the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and they were plagued by many of the issues that led them to stumble to last season’s finish line. After putting together a perfect opening drive, the Cardinals offense sputtered and converted just 3 of 11 third downs while quarterback Carson Palmer took a beating. The Cardinals didn’t fall drastically in any rankings despite the blowout, but that’s in part because they were already so low. Top Stories last_img read more

first_img Former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner was a teammate of Levi Brown’s for three seasons, all of which saw Brown playing the right tackle position.However, while Brown was never charged with protecting Warner’s “blind side,” the QB, who is now an analyst for the NFL Network, has seen the tackle’s work up close.Wednesday morning, Brown was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers, ending a disappointing run in the desert.

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelocenter_img Top Stories “A little bit surprising, obviously,” Warner told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Wednesday morning about the deal, noting that the team re-signed him to a contract last year and had him in the starting lineup this year. “He’s struggled at times this year.“But, I think, on the same note, I’m surprised that Pittsburgh went and traded for him with the fact that he hasn’t played necessarily great football up to this point in the season.”That is not to say Warner, who is now an analyst for the NFL Network, believes Brown is a lost cause. The future Hall of Famer said Brown is “extremely physically talented,” but struggles with the techniques of being an NFL tackle. “So much of what separates good from great is the ability to have great technique and to rely on that in different situations,” he said. Warner said the 29-year-old Brown needs to figure that part of the game out because, regardless of how talented he may be, it will be the difference in his career. “But he definitely has physical talent.” 0 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retireslast_img read more
