Cardinals Embarassed in Home Loss to Seattle, 36-18

Darnell Dockett, who was inactive with a shoulder injury, likely watched the Cardinals' season go by in a pathetic effort by his teammates

There’s a few minutes left in the third quarter with the Seahawks leading 26-10, but I don’t need to watch the rest of the game to know how it will end.  Arizona has apparently completely given up as the Seahawks owned them on their own field.

Arizona didn’t cover punts, they jogged after ball carriers, they left Seahawk receivers wide open all over the field, they jumped off-sides, they gave up sacks in max protection, they committed multiple false start and delay of game penalties, they dropped first down passes, and they didn’t even seem to care.  If you didn’t watch the game, there’s just too many things to point to regarding how poorly the Cardinals played, but it’s the ugliest effort I’ve seen from Arizona in years.  It’s more than a lack of execution; they put out zero effort. 

On defense, the Cardinals were gashed through the air and on the ground giving up almost 500 yards of offense; they couldn’t come up with one stop when needed.  Seahawks receiver Mike Williams had seven catches for 91 yards…in the first half; he finished with 11 receptions for 145 yards as he torched the Cardinals’ patsy secondary all game.  Adrian Wilson, once again, appeared completely lost in pass coverage.  Dominique Rogdgers-Cromartie logged his second intereception of the season, but it meant nothing. 

On offense, it was once again an exercise in futility, especially in the third quarter.  Arizona recorded -10 yards of offense in the entire thrid quarter, which is honestly unbelievable.  Arizona gained a pathetic 41 yards rushing and although they gained 286 yards through the air, most of that was conceeded by the Seahawks in the fourth quarter with a big lead.  Arizona coverted on two of eleven third downs.  An offense just can’t get worse.

With this effort, or lack thereof, the Cardinals have likely ended their season with their fourth straight loss, which drops them to an all but doomed 3-6 record.

More on this unfortunate game tomorrow.
