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.
