Cards Ground Game One of the Worst Says Scouts Inc.


A recent ranking of running games by Scouts Inc. says that the Cardinals ground game in 2007 is not going to be too good.  Despite what should be a better year for Edgerrin James, the team has their issues at the position.  Below is the recap of the Cards #26 ranking heading into 2007:

26. Arizona Cardinals

Despite spending a ton of money to acquire Edgerrin James before the 2006 season, the Cardinals finished the regular season ranked 30th in the NFL in rushing offense. However, that had more to do with the offensive line than James. With a new coaching staff highlighted by offensive line coach Russ Grimm, the Cardinals are bound to run the ball better in 2007. Even with James, though, this unit is very average. J.J. Arrington doesn’t run hard inside the tackles and consistently tries to bounce his runs to the edge. Marcel Shipp is a good No. 3, but has been reduced to primarily a short-yardage runner. The Cardinals can throw the ball but need more consistency from their rushing attack.
