The first quarter wasn’t pretty.  The second quarter wasn’t a work of art, but it was a heck of a lot better.  The Arizona Cardinals found some footing on both offense and defense and scored on a touchdown pass from quarterback Kevin Kolb to receiver Larry Fitzgerald to give the Cards a 10-9 lead at halftime over the Buffalo Bills.

The Cards running game wasn’t great, however a couple of very nice runs by LaRod Stephens-Howling on the touchdown drive and a great pounding run by William Powell on the ensuing drive give Cards fans some hope going to the second half.

The Cards on their last drive of the half had a successful fake punt but of course, as usual, it didn’t pan out thanks to a sack of Kolb.  It’s time to get on this offensive line.  I will say it.  They suck  They plain suck.  I don’t use that word here often.  The Cardinals offensive line makes me want to puke.  I know high school teams that could beat them down.

So, as I stated this morning, the Cards play down to the level of the competition and that has held true so far today.  The second half I imagine doesn’t improve much.  Let’s just do enough to win, please.
