...who didn't show everything last week.
I keep reading things like this from Tom Pelissero, quoting Cardinal defensive coordinator Billy Davis:
Asked how hard it was to watch the Packers roll up 302 yards in their first five drives last weekend, Davis said, “As hard as it comes. That’s as hard as it gets, in both the run game and the pass game.
“But we had a plan going in, we stuck to our plan and we had great reasons for our plan..."
It's the 'great reasons for our plan' that I like so much, as if these 'great reasons' are all set to be revealed this Sunday out in the desert.
Look, the Cardinals were not as 'vanilla' this past Sunday as they like to pretend. (They ran a rub/pick play for God's sake, which resulted in one of Warner's few completions) But they seem to think that they have fooled the Pack into showing something which they can take advantage of this weekend.
If that's the case, they're in for a loooooong day. The Packers ran basically the same offensive sets they ran in the preseason game. They showed a lot of base, straight up looks on defense. You can bet the house that all of that is going to change on Sunday.
The Cardinals are starting to remind me of that guy we all knew growing up - the guy who's ass you would kick at whatever game/sport everyone on the block was playing, and when you got done whoopin' his butt, he would take the ball to start the game over and say "Ok, this time I'm gonna play for real"
And then you kicked his ass again.
