Lots of Cards games live in Australia this season, but they've largely been the train wrecks.
Not really the form you want to be taking into the Playoffs. This is when a team should be ramping up their effort.
Hoping against hope they are so embarassed by recent efforts they come out in that home playoff with a big chip on their shoulder and a fire in the belly. Something surely is missing atm.
Its been awhile since you guys made the playoffs, so I know its gonna be crazy at your stadium... cant wait to watch it. Its like a past vs future QB show... not saying Warner is past cuz he is playing great, but thats just what im calling it
What do you guys think about this trade:
(This is using the current draft order)
Arizona Trades:1st Round(21) 800 pts
Oakland Trades: 2nd round(39) 510 pts, Justin Fargas(Him and Hightower should give you guys a very good 1 2 punch at RB) and our 5th(135) 38.5 pts
In the end you guys fill a need in RB, pick up a early 2nd rounder and add another pick to add depth at a position. With your 2nd you could probably get a OG like Herman Johnson and with your other 2nd get defense.
Oakland doesnt need to have 3 good RB's and we will be able to pick up a WR and OT with the 1st rounders we get.(Monroe and Maclin or Crabtree and Eben Britton) Or possibly go BJ Raji with the last 1st rounder we got
Guys, what do you think about Edgerrin James wanting out? He showed he still has a burst last game, and if he has a good playoff run, we could see the guy's stock rise quite a bit. Is Hightower your guy's future back? Either way, he's gone, so the way I see it, why not trade him to Denver, with a year on his contract? He's a one cut no nonsense runner, (and his ypc average does not support that claim) who can block (even though he's sick of it) and I think he fits the physical mold of the type of back we try to use. We tried to sign edge a few years back, it never worked out, do you think he would be a good fit in Denver in a 2 back system in which he gets 60% of the carries?
Congrats on the win guys, your defense really stepped up. They really controlled the line of scrimmage, never allowed the Falcons to establish a running game, and forced Ryan to make rookie mistakes. They also had the snap count measured really well.
And the offensive line played really great. No sacks allowed and a good running game. Mike Gandy couldn't have gotten a better birthday gift.
Matt Ryan is a rookie, and your team was one of few to show that.
You guys played pretty different from your regular season stats. Ran it well on us, and we couldnt stop Warner on big plays... a lot of them. Keith Brooking pretty much robbed us of a chance to win the game, but it happens. Tough loss for us, but itll be even tougher for you guys, knowing already that whichever team you face, you lost to them earlier this year. Barely to the Panthers at their place, and slaughted by the Giants at yours.... Good luck, youre gonna need it. We woulda needed it as well
