Cardinals vs Vikings Gameday Thread
 
We suck. This team makes me so mad, I'm going to verbally assault a war veteran with no legs.

No Winfield today :( and also no Berrian :). This is a game we should win, at home versus a bad team, but I'm really not expecting anything.

Jared Allen is going rape Levi Brown.

Like he's done in every game all year. But once again it won't matter and I'll be forced to get shithouse drunk by 1:30 to handle the embarrassment.

What an unbelievable day of sports today. You can't get drunk that early. This might be one of the best days I can remember. 2 MLB playoff games, Winnipeg Jets return on NHL Network @ 5, NFL all day, and a great SNF game with Packers/Falcons. Oh, and the Vikings play at some point.

I think the Packers are going to roll over Atlanta though, seriously, how did that team go 13-3 last year? They look so average with basically the exact same team plus Edwards (who I'm pretty sure has been invisible) and Julio Jones.

General Zod 10-09-2011 11:54 AM

Hopefully Aromashodu takes advantage of the playing time he gets today. So we can just leave Beatrice on the bench.

Edwards has done nothing for Atlanta. Robinson and Griffin have done a solid job filling the spot.

Oh man, I love Tom Pelissero(if any of you have a twitter account, you should definitely be following him):

Nothing fires up a crowd like introducing Asher Allen.
EDIT: Also something is up with Cedric Griffin:

Tom Pelissero
Also ... where is Cedric Griffin? No starter change announced, but he wasn't introduced and I haven't seen him

Now I see Cedric on the sideline. He has his jersey rolled up. Not sure exactly what the deal is there. We'll see ...

Has Griffen even played much? The only time he's really been noticeable is when he got the 15 yard facemask penalty last week and celebrated it for 15 seconds afterwards.

I definitely love what Robison has done so far though.

FuzzyGopher 10-09-2011 12:01 PM

So Asher Allen is starting for Cedric Griffin and Cook for Winfield? Kolb will throw for 800 yards.

They've been using him at LB the past couple weeks in the nickel, with them going with a 3-3-5 and him standing up kind of roaming around often blitzing out of it. I noticed they ran that a lot last week with EJ's knee acting up.

I assume Cook will get Fitz, and I think he did a really good job on CJ a few weeks ago, his stats were a lot the result of us leaving him on an island against him for whatever reason. He made a couple really good plays. But yeah Asher is a lost cause.

Looks like they're doing what they've always done, just playing sides with Cook getting the LCB.

How did that ball land right between four Vikings with no one even getting a finger on it?

yo123 10-09-2011 12:05 PM

Is there another team in the history of the NFL who wouldn't intercept that ball? Holy ****.

marshallb 10-09-2011 12:07 PM

Did Tim Ryan just say that Phil Loadholt is our best OL?!? God damnit that's sad that anyone could even think that Loadholt is our best OL, he's ******* terrible.

For some reason something good has been said about him in pretty much every game so far. I don't get it.

marshallb 10-09-2011 12:08 PM

Holy **** McNabb sucks, glad they're booing his ass.

Perfect punt by Kluwe.

marshallb 10-09-2011 12:10 PM

Tom Pelissero
Cedric Griffin in for the second defensive series. That means it was disciplinary.

yo123 10-09-2011 12:15 PM

That was an absolutely awful punt and worse coverage, but man I'm loving Sherels this year.

I'm still not sold on Green Bay's defense, especially the secondary. A team with two great receivers like Atlanta could give them huge problems. Julio Jones looks like an absolute monster.

That said, there's that Packer offense, and stopping that juggernaut looks like another story. Rodgers looks as good as any QB I've ever seen. I'm absolutely terrified of that team.

yo123 10-09-2011 12:21 PM

I agree that Green Bay's defense isn't very good, but Clay hasn't really gotten going yet and I don't know if Matt Ryan is good enough to put them on his back.

Been following Pelissero for awhile now. He's a very good writer, definitely puts in the work. Like his film study articles.

Also, I'm on twitter @djp4516, so if any of you jokers are on there, send a follow this way and I will return the favor

marshallb 10-09-2011 12:26 PM

Wait, Asher Allen did something positive, what?

FuzzyGopher 10-09-2011 12:31 PM

Brian Robison has been pretty damn good this year.
