Cards RB Wells not happy with his role in the offense

Cardinals running back Beanie Wells expressed frustration today at his limited role in Sunday’s 41-10 loss to the Chargers. Wells told Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic that he wasn’t happy with only 5 carries for 19 yards.

“I didn’t get into the game until there were four minutes left in the second quarter (Sunday against the Chargers) and I have no clue as to why. I’d like to think I’m a big part of this thing, but right now, I don’t feel it.” Wells, who had just five carries for 19 yards in Arizona’s 41-10 loss, said he planned to meet privately with coach Ken Whisenhunt to discuss his displeasure. “Oh, we’re definitely going to have a talk,” Wells told The Republic.

Later, as other reporters gathered around his locker, Wells vented his frustration even further. “No discredit to Tim,” he said of fellow running back and designated starter, Tim Hightower, “… but I hate to sit on the sideline watching. I’d rather be out there contributing to the team and that’s something I’m not pleased about. It’s crazy. I have no clue what they’re thinking upstairs. I would like to know, but hey, I’m definitely not pleased about it.”

    Coach Kenny, is not showing much in the way of good coaching. To have gone the entire off-season with Lienart and to bring in ONLY a equal talen t at best while parting ways —– STUPID! As for pure talent (able to be on field for most teams) Wells is superior to Hightower, evident since middle of last season. So, like Wells I am pressed to understand where you put pressure on defenses by having him on sidelines. I like the heart and effort of Hightower but even with 80-yd runs he does not bring fear to defenses faced. Bottom line when the coach feels he is King he brings down all the others around him. He got lucky with Edge hopefully but not likely that will happen again this season. Coach Kenny, humble yourself and the team will follow.
