It’s sounding like a broken record but Trent Richardson had another sub-par game with a 2.1 YPC on seven attempts. It’s officially time to buy-low on Richardson. Anyone treating him like anything other than a bust is crazy.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals put Rashard Mendenhall back to the top of the depth chart and carried it 13 times for 54 yards and a touchdown for a respectable 4.2 YPC. Even though rookie Andre Ellington also had a good game with 50 yards on 10 carries, don’t expect him to overtake Mendenhall any time soon. Next year, on the other hand, hopefully the Arizona coaching staff sees the light.
Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd hauled in all seven targets for 104 yards and a touchdown. Whether Larry Fitzgerald stays or goes, Floyd is a solid player.
Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby continues his solid 2013 season with five tackles and an interception returned for a touchdown. Count me as one of those that didn’t believe Dansby had anything left but with 14 passes defended (including at least one in each game) to go along with his 87 tackles, he’s made himself relevant. I’d expect Arizona to re-sign the free agent after this season and try to keep their excellent defense in tact.
