Alright, the football gods are really playing with my unshaken belief and optimism here in 2007. Reports from the Arizona Cardinals organization are that CB Eric Green and Pro Bowl SS Adrian Wilson are sidelined for the rest of the year with injury. This could not have come at a worse time for a team still in the hunt for a Wild Card playoff berth and possibly an NFC West title. Damn!!!
Green was just starting to really find his groove in coverage, and had definately become a force in stopping the run, A-Dub is…….well he’s A-Dub! He is a game changer, he is the X-factor that opposing offensive coordinators have to account for on every single play. Now without these two, the Cards have to dig deep to try to make a playoff run.
Like I said on Sunday, you never know your strength until its been tested. Well, Oliver Celestin, Ralph Brown and Antrel Rolle, guess what? You’re going to be tested in these last 5 games. How are you going to respond? The season hangs in the balance…….
