AZ O-Line
 
Does anyone know how the AZ O-line stacks up against the rest of the league...are they very good....average at best.....not so hot...

The same five have played the whole season (19 games) together.

The Cards have never had a good O-line, but Grimm has whipped them into shape.

You have to look further than that.

The Cards put up numbers on offense.


Cardinals Offense - NFL ranking

3rd in Total Offense (YPG)
4th in Passing (YPG)
4th in Rushing (YPG)




Will our D shut it down - that is the question.

I think you were looking at the wrong stats. They had the LAST ranked rushing offense with only 1178 total yards for the season. Only 73.6 YPG, while the Steelers ranked 23rd in rushing with 105 YPG.

Cardinals have a decent young line that has not been hampered by injuries. Brown and Gandy are good OT's, but Gandy allowed 6 sacks and Brown 11.5 this season.

The Cardinals survive by throwing quick passes and screens to not put too much pressure on their pass protectors. The interior is a good young group, but Lyle Sendelin at C is no match for Hampton....I expect Big Snack to need a double team leaving some matchup problems.

You're kinda right - those are playoffs stats, but that's the team we're playing too.

1st in passing TDs and tied for 4th with rushing TDs. Tied for 1st with defensive TDs as well. :popcorn:

Just curious here, IA - why do you spend so much time on a Steelers BB? Shouldn't you be woo-hoo'ing it with the other 30 Cards fans on a Cards BB? :scratchchin:

Most of what they do on offense is Kurt Warner making quick passes and getting the ball out really fast. It doesn't hurt that they have the talent they do.
