Cardinals Run/Pass Ratio from 06 and Looking at 07

Edgerrin James looks for some yards 

NFLGridironGab has posted the last season ratio run to pass for each team, as well as the teams outlook for 2007.  Here is a look at the Cards from 06 and what to expect for 07.  

Arizona 57% Pass to 43% Run

2006: Arizona did what opponents expected them to do last year. There were no surprises when they went to the air time after time. The run game was dreadful last season with the league’s worst rush average at 3.2 a carry. They ran less than an overweight youth who plays NFL Madden 2007 everyday. This awful rushing performance was the main reason Arizona was once again a five-win team.

2007: Arizona’s offense traveled through the air more than FedEx last season. The passing attack was counted on more often then the offense of their in-state basketball team, the Phoenix Suns. I see some changes being made to the running even though they favored that above average passing attack more than the not-so vaunted run game by a bunch. The Leinart, Fitzgerald, and Boldin trio will continue to flourish. But the Cards need to get the “Edge” going if they want to succeed. They helped their cause by drafting Penn State OT Levi Brown 5th overall. Be ready to see a vastly improved rushing attack with a new sheriff in town, former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhut.
