All right, welcome to this.
Gentle to the air Cardinals area.
Report the cards.
Air raid report, of course.
Onley at SportsCastr app and cards area dot com My name is David Lloyd.
I'm your host for this show.
And if you appreciate the hell are you guys? Because you do me a huge favor Hit, subscribe Little green men with the plus or your Spotify just subscribe I would do It was a huge, huge favor on that.
So yeah, stuff from Cardinal football.
So unfortunately we had it was a missed opportunity, right? If you missed it, Cardinals dropped a really Ah, firefighter.
Sort of shootout to the Dolphins, 34 31.
Bring up the score here for you guys.
So you can follow along.
We'll go through the game, talk about what happened.
What went wrong? What went right and then go from there.
So dolphins dropped 34 on us.
We have 31 of them Now, Look, if you got if you wanna take a silver lining from it, 31 points on one of the best defense is in the NFL is not terrible, right? It's not bad.
So you can't be too upset about that.
But to lose to the Dolphins.
Thio to me can't have that now with the rookie quarterback.
Right now, it is to attack of a low.
Uh, so you know, you gotta think about that.
But let's go through the numbers real quick for the Arizona Cardinals.
Colin Murray, 21 for 26 283 yards, three touchdowns.
And not only that.
Okay, 11 carries, 106 yards and a touchdown.
Trace Edmund got 70 yards on 25 carries. Collar.
Murray had a monster game, and it means nothing, really.
As far as like, Winds go, obviously, as far as his legend goes or whatnot because his career or maybe his legends folklore.
At the end of the day, we'll see.
Um, it Z huge, huge, huge game.
But no one's gonna remember because he lost right.
Had we had he won this game, it would have been thought of as the game where Kyler became Kyler, and, um, I still be that, but it's not gonna be remembered as well, in my opinion, because you lost, but regardless keep going through the numbers like Chase Adams 25 carries 70 yards.
We got D J Foster instead of Eno Benjamin, This this is a weird one for me.
I don't understand why d j Foster got play and, you know, didn't, um to me he knows better.
Maybe just because you get far more experience, I don't know.
Receiving wise, Christopher had a huge Game five carry.
55 catches, 123 yards and a touchdown.
Larry Fitzgerald, 4 54.
And, of course, the under talking to you for 30 and none of those in the first half.
In the first half, he had nothing.
So it z whether you know and kind of go Sorry, Cliff Kingsbury.
He took responsibility for that.
He said it was his fault.
But then in the second half, you're gonna get him involved.
They got someone in someone involved.
Ah, lot of us have to do with the coverage.
But DeAndre Hopkins isn't necessarily like a clean rot runner.
Now, he could run round.
Don't get me wrong, but he's very much I could get open kind of guy like if you tell hot Go get open.
He will go get open it might not be the route that you wanted to run or a route you wanted to run, but he will get open.
Um, And Isabella? It is a guy who needs some help.
Miss Catches dropped balls.
Um, mouth punts.
Just just stupid.
And one place where it was trying to get the first down.
Any cutting went backwards.
That was stupid.
A needs him out, needs a lot of work.
Um, Colin Murray from of the ball once and lost it, and he was able to jump back on on his.
But again, you can't have that.
Not in the NFL. Right.
And, uh, every time I I ever bring up and Isabella, the first thing people talk about is that we drafted him.
Where d k Metcalf in there, Right there. Right.
But I know d came back.
Have some weird.
I remember back in that draft, DK had some weird thing where they were saying that he didn't have good hands.
Everyone I heard that I thought it was well, somebody's trying to draft him then later on, because that's BS that dude can catch.
Alright, He's a freak athlete, but you know, is what It is nice.
A Seattle Seahawk, unfortunately for us in our division.
But anyway, all right, one of the defense. Jordan Hicks.
You see, all the tackles told us everything. JC Whitaker.
Oh, Jason Whitaker.
Sorry, Jase Whitaker.
Coming from the from the practice squad.
Made a government steak and he came in and right away cause penalty on P I.
But you know, that being said, Markus Golden played really well.
Hey, would have had a sack, but it got called back because of penalties.
Way have penalties in this game.
This whole game was just a mess.
You know what? Let's just let's not sugarcoat.
We made enough mistakes for this has become a massive missed opportunity because Seattle lost earlier today.
Okay, they lose, we win, we make up a game.
We make up some ground, right? We'd be in fact, we would be, um, tied with him at least at first and then ahead of him because we need him.
Um, yeah, it's just it's just a mess.
Now here's where the defense bugs me, too, was a rookie, and I get it.
He's really good.
In fact, my thought process last season when we drafted Kyler, but they were gonna draft a tackle or alignment is, um, source, um, high level guy.
And then we draft to this last draft.
I thought, Well, that that's what we're gonna dio.
Um, I'm not mad at our pick.
I was kind of Murray's proven to be a franchise quarterback, and two or so has some ground to go.
But 2 48 for two touchdowns, I guess aren't even keep in mind.
We're not the best demons, either, but were solid, but we're not great.
Um, they running back by committee.
Seven carries for Ahmed Salman Ahmed Jordan Howard.
10 carries from 19 yards and a touchdown.
Um, fantasy owners are not impressed to seven carries.
He was thinking about two.
They put, we put pressure on him and he realized he had legs and that dude took off running.
And so when he runs, he's way more dangerous than when he's trying to be a pocket passer to.
It can be a pocket passer, but he's not.
He's not the guy he's get out of the pocket, throw on the move, play action, which we fell for a whole lot.
And, uh, yeah, so All right.
The Parker Secretary.
Six receptions, 64 yards.
President Williams, four catches, 60 yards and a touchdown.
He actually was a went out within an ankle injury, I believe, uh, the play where you flipped in the air and landed.
Um, Michael said, can't believe had I got a concussion, they got all beat up, too.
I mean, both sides were beat up right way.
Oh, and we're missing our corner.
Byron Murphy because of Cove it and linebacker Kinard.
Um, can't have that.
We can't have that. You guys are professionals.
You gotta take care of yourselves.
And we can't be missing people.
And I know that's honestly, a lot to ask right now with this whole pandemic, but but do you cannot have that anyway, I'm kind of going all over the place.
Let Zach up a little bit.
So first quarter we go in, You know, we, uh Here's where you know I talk about you can't You can't lose the game.
You can't win the game in the first five minutes.
We could definitely lose it.
The ball, loses it. They score.
Touchdown! Go up.
70 we come back. Score.
They come back and score Going to the second quarter.
You know, Uh, 57 they get field goal.
They got a touchdown in the field.
When we get Does that feel as well Their quarter? We had scoring by two touchdowns and then they dropped 10 points in the fourth quarter, scoreless in the fourth quarter.
There was a lot of talk about Cliff Kingsbury's, Um, I don't know how to put it like lack of risk taking in the fourth quarter.
A lot of conservative play calls and I agree with that.
But that being said had we won, nobody would be saying anything.
E think a lot of people just wanna rag on him because then you're, you know, he's still pretty brand new to the NFL game.
The NFL coaching circles, you know, they spent a lot of time in Texas Tech a lot of time in college and he still trying to learn the ropes, everything.
But you know, last week we should have kicked the field goal Thio get a lead and and we did.
We went forward, lost the ball.
We're on four on one kicked the field goal.
Missed its and Gonzalez Mrs and Mrs another kick a clutch one.
And basically I ended our game.
But it's just do it Azaz jumbled and it's all over the place.
Is that sound right now? And I really do believe me, I dio noticing and and I apologize for it.
That's how this game waas.
It was a nail biter to the end, but it's, Ah, there's a lot of mistakes.
You know, You could look at Colin Murray's, you know, fumble at the very beginning.
You can you can look at and Isabella dropped balls, fumble everything, all that kind of stuff, Miss catches and all that dropped balls.
Um, you could look at Zynga's always missed field goal, and you could look at, you know, clip Kingsbury's conservative play calls on fourth and one.
We should probably have gone for, and I agree with that sentiment.
We should have gone for that.
Colin Murray could have been play action.
Whatever you wanted to dio, right? It's these kind of games that we can't lose.
We beat Seattle.
We weren't supposed to.
We were not supposed to be Seattle. No.
We beat a team we're supposed to be, Um then we go against the Miami Dolphins.
Were supposed to be undermanned.
Sure, Connor was gone. Refuse gone.
And we dropped the ball.
Now I don't think necessarily.
And it's gonna sound weird.
I don't think beat ourselves in this one.
I think we need to give the office a lot of credit for this one.
They outplayed us.
They beat us straight up.
But those mistakes came back and bit in the ass for sure.
It's something we can't have, especially the rest of the way.
We have Buffalo this weekend.
Buffalo dropped 44 in Seattle.
You don't think they're gonna drop you? Don't get dropped.
44 on us On our defense.
Where Buddha Bakers of one guy Chandler Jones is out for the season.
Markus Golden, By the way.
Thank God we got him.
But he is not alone.
Going toe stop by the teams.
So what's that process as faras the rest season goes, um, defensively need.
Look, offensively, we're fine.
Cut down the mistakes, like I'm telling you, right, that we don't If carly doesn't form of the ball.
That's kind of it.
I mean, I know it's You know, what I should have could and all that and people gonna be like, Well, what about Cliff and the and the play calling all that whatever you wanna do.
What do you want to bring up? Go for it.
But I don't I don't see where you could blame one person.
The entire team lost his game.
So, um yes, very unfortunate.
Look, nobody moved.
The Rams were on the by and everybody else lost.
So it's There's not a lot of moving the NFC West ast faras standings going everything.
But it would have been really nice to get Ah, leg up on Seattle, obviously.
All right, let's go over to the rest of the schedule here for you guys.
So, Actually, woman, you got to see it there on the left side.
The bills this weekend, then at Seattle at at New England, was playing right now.
They're down, they're down 10 to the jets, believe actually knows the other way around.
Right? You see the score up here? The, uh Yeah, they're down.
Wow, They're down 10 of the Jets.
Mhm, your Cam Newton **** Cam Newton is not the same Kanun anyway.
Then we're at home against the Rams at New York against the Giants at home against the Eagles at home against the Niners at inelegant the Rams.
There's a decent chance to make the playoffs, which is not something I thought was possible.
But there's also we need.
We need the Niners to stay playing like crap.
Honestly, they did lose against Green Bay, 34 17.
So and and look, the Niners are missing everybody like just everybody.
So I'm not surprised her out.
Alright, for the Buffalo Bills, the latest looks like the latest.
And you see, uh, as faras the yeah, the latest is the latest injury report for now.
Today, David is white, their corner great corner, by the way.
Usually, when you get the more, the more, um, accurate injury reports.
Kendrick Drinker Patrick out for us.
So far? Uh, no word yet.
I'm Byron Murphy or or Conard.
I would love to get by on Murphy back.
Josh Allen is a He's a quarterback.
I don't know why people keep you know what people I know.
He played crab in the last couple of weeks.
Everything but this is the last week and he dropped 44.
He's got the Buffalo Bills of seven and two in the playoffs, all right? And they're three and one away from from Buffalo, where were two or two at home.
So it's very possible to beat us special with our defense, right? I was even Compare the quarterback.
19 touchdown receptions to Kyler, 16 7.
They're running games.
Not as good, obviously are.
Quarterbacks are remember running game.
So it's something about and then you compare Stefon Diggs to DeAndre Hopkins.
Andres numbers have dropped off the last few weeks.
The last 23 weeks, um, they'll get them back up.
Um, I think defense.
They're just now finally understanding that Kyler and hop have this connection Skylar hab and that the teams are definitely going in the into ah, to stop that. Right.
For the bills, they're dropping 26 people and giving up 25 1990 yards.
Um, overall in offense.
Good passing team.
Okay. Running team.
Um, they do give up a lot of yard, so this could possibly this could potentially.
And actually, I'm starting to think it's gonna be a shootout again.
One of those last team with the ball wins type of type of games, and I'm gonna I was gonna pick us.
I'm not gonna pick them.
You know the Bills to win this game.
But it's, you know, we need to We need this game.
We need this game to stay and stay up in the West is Let me see who the Seattle Seahawks were playing this weekend.
They're not in a by, but why was we get that next weekend? The Seattle plays that's gonna be in the game in Seattle for really, Obviously no fans are still.
They play the Rams, The Seahawks are gonna beat the Rams.
They're gonna come back, ****ed off about losing to the Bills.
They're gonna beat the Rams.
So we're gonna have a head up on us going into into the game against us in Seattle.
So we need a win this weekend.
There's no doubt about it.
I, I struggle to say, must win because it's still quite a bit of season left.
But, you know, especially with all the covert stuff going down.
Players get We're losing players to do to co vid.
You know, if you guys were watching any college football this game, I mean Alabama.
L s u is questionable else.
You've got a bunch of guys in quarantine and a bunch of guys test positive.
Right? Um, Arizona, You've a the walk.
Cats, they were first given.
Seasoning is you talk about canceled cause Utah.
The numbers are spiking everywhere this weekend against USC at home in Tucson.
Still, as much as they want to say, Oh, it's gonna happen.
Whatever it's questionable, you don't know nobody knows is gonna happen.
It's something we need to definitely key penile, right, even improve football.
I'm not gonna get political on you guys whatsoever, But, you know, I wonder what could have been done, right? We're on the same page. That's basically what I'm thinking.
It's We'll never know.
Obviously, it's too late.
But you know, now, with all these, they're talking about that vaccines that are 90% effective or whatever they give they give that number and a couple of things a couple of treatment they're gonna get approved, are working on getting improved, or they get approved.
It's I'm not worried about getting crowds back in there.
I know they are. Teams are definitely.
They want that money.
But I'm not worried about getting fans looking stains yet.
I'm worried about finishing the season.
Yeah, I mean people.
Those who farmers have been pretty good.
We'll know the teams have been missing players and we had games postponed or canceled or whatever.
Early in season, we're missing players.
We just missed buyer Murphy this last week and we could have used them.
We lost a couple of, uh, a couple corners, Thio injuries, and they want a concussion.
Um, you know? Yeah, something we need to look at.
We need to get these players, you know, just about the game.
Keep these players on the field, get him healthy, and keep them healthy.
A Zara's crowds go, man, I could care less.
Honestly, I don't care about crowds right now.
Um, I'd like to think there's only since we're gonna have without fans.
Oh, with minimum.
They had, like, 4200, some of that in the stadium yesterday.
But I am sorry Sunday, but I'd like to think that they had you know that they will have fans in 21 will be fine and everything.
We get solid, right? But you never know, And you gotta prepare for that kind of thing.
So I think for now, I think you know, getting those kind of measures in vaccines.
You wanna call it? You know, I know people get crazy.
Talk about Bill Gates was to kill you. I don't know.
I don't I don't I don't look at the conspiracy theories unless they're interesting.
And that which is weird for now, Obviously, we'll see if it gets crazier, but, you know, treatments and all that.
We need to look into that for sure.
But as far as like the players go, they have responsibility.
Take care of themselves, you know? I mean, you're gonna see Pete.
Look, I'm telling you right now, I can't wait to see the first one.
There's gonna be contracts like the next contract that you know, the next.
You know, from now, until forever conscious, they're gonna be If they don't have it already, they're gonna have a like a pandemic thing on there, where it is a pandemic and your country's part of it or, you know, your cities part of it. Whatever.
You have a professional do our duty to your to your professional football team to stay healthy any, you know, positive test, whatever will result in whatever, right? I don't know.
What can I was doing? I don't know what Murphy's doing, you know? They're grown ass, man.
They figure that out.
But, you know, we're looking at, for example, college football.
And I'm missing players and gambling games because the college kids, they're not gonna you know, they feel invincible.
They're not gonna be taking extra precautions at this point.
They're gonna ask those kids to start acting like mature adults and take care of themselves.
Right? We got professional players, in my opinion, don't have that luxury of just war college kids.
No, you got to carry itself.
Bottom line. There's no other way.
Yeah, I mean, like, imagine Colin Murray catch coach Jesus, Hope not, But let's say that happened and we missed him.
Let me miss Kenyon drink in this game.
We could have used them big time, but he's obviously with England re, but we missed like a big time player because of co vid.
That's a massive problem.
That's a huge problem, you know? So it's just we need all hands on deck.
Hopefully, you know, Drake and Dre, you know? Yeah.
Healthy as soon as possible.
I wish we had Chandler.
Jones and his team should have markets golden back.
I would say I think we only got Marcus Gold because we lost training drugs for the year.
But, I mean, that's to keep him, you know, having both.
So, um so where we are? Uh huh.
Anyway, I should have got some coffee.
It is lunchtime where I'm at.
So I should have got some coffee earlier, but I got a nice little quiet room to talk to you guys.
So, uh, doing a little bit of, ah, midday card.
Again, this this coming weekend, we get a, we get the Buffalo Bills.
Just dropped 44 in Seattle.
So we need to make sure we we're on our peace and queues there.
