"The Cardinal" Bio
The Playoff Race
- - - - - The new Leftwich era was ushered in on a very familiar note, with a run up the middle. It ended in a familiar fashion too, striking gold against the 49ers. Entering the fourth quarter, however, the latter was very much in doubt and the Cardinals needed to ultimately overcome a 15-3 deficit to solidify their third place position and earn their eighth consecutive win over San Francisco.
- - - - - The offense did benefit from the use of screens and misdirection, but we should temper our excitement. The Cardinals did show more life after the first two quarters, but still only put up 18 points. And, we still have Jermaine Gresham. One can hope that with a bye week to work in a few new wrinkles, the Leftwich offense and Wilks defense can demonstrate continued growth.
NEXT WEEK, @ KANSAS CITY CHIEFS: On the other side of the bye, however, await the Chiefs. This is one that could get ugly real fast. And not just on the field. My last trip to Kansas City resulted in my being threatened in the stands then followed to my car. All this after their team won 31-13. Maybe this time Iíll get to find out how they react should their team lose.
