Rams-Cardinals: 10 observations

Rams-Cardinals: 10 observations

Each week, we’ll examine how the snaps were distributed among the Rams players and break down what the numbers mean. The Los Angeles Rams were dominant from start to finish against the Arizona Cardinals. In the process, they got some valuable rest time for marquee players and some action for the backups. Here are my 10 observations from the game: RB Todd Gurley got valuable rest. After playing 59 offensive snaps and 94 percent of the total snaps on that side of the ball in week one against the Oakland Raiders, Gurley’s breathers came more often against the hapless Cardinals. He was in...

Looking At Some Player Comps For A Goldy Extension

What should the Diamondbacks do with their star first baseman for 2020 and beyond? The right now sucks. Let’s talk about the future. Specifically, a very important decision that’s loooming for the Diamondbacks in 2019/2020. Should the Arizona Diamondbacks extend Paul Goldschmidt? Now, this is a very difficult question to answer as there are many factors at play, but primarily (expected) performance and cost. This article will not focus on cost but will instead provide one means of analysis for Goldschmidt: player comps. This is not meant to give a decisive, final answer on how Goldy...

Arizona Cardinals release Garrison Smith, sign Nigel Harris to practice squad

The Cardinals are making some moves after their second straight defeat. After an awful start to the 2018 NFL season, the Arizona Cardinals are coming out and starting to make some moves. Nothing earth shattering, but they have announce the release of defensive tackle Garrison Smith, who they claimed on waivers after the the NFL cutdown period and also the release of practice squad linebacker B.J. Bello. In a subsequent practice squad move, they have signed linebacker Nigel Harris. From the team: Harris (6-2, 225) played in eight total games last season with the Chargers, Giants and...

Hey Suns, it’s time to close the deal on Patrick Beverley

Hey Suns, it’s time to close the deal on Patrick Beverley

If the Phoenix Suns can acquire Beverley for a first-round pick outside the lottery, they should do it. Phoenix Suns training camp, ahead of the franchise’s 51st season, begins in one week. Preseason games start a week after that. And the regular-season home opener is two weeks after that. The Suns are promising to be competitive this season. They’re tired of losing. They want to stop tanking for draft picks, and to start winning more than 1 game out of every 4 — which would exceed their win rate over the last THREE miserable seasons. Yet they still have no legitimate point...

Enough is enough with this bland offense that can’t move the ball down the field. The Cardinals offense needs a new game plan... and more leadership Seth put out an article yesterday about how poor of a job the team has done of using their best offensive weapon — David Johnson. After reading that, I sat down and listened to the Monday afternoon press conference with Coach Wilks where he emphasized that the team has to do a better job of getting Johnson the ball, especially as a receiver out in the slot or even out wide. He also stated that they plan on “scaling back” the offense,...
