    Reeder has been playing really well. The former all state HS RB moved to linebacker pulled Ravens QB Huntley down with one arm a couple of weeks ago.

    Yes sir Carolina Speed! Nice run by Jake Funk!
    Rams offense on that play had 10 whites and OBJ...Hard to believe!

    How bout Cards LB Tanner Vallejo blowing up that play on #23!

    Where is Andy Isabella?

    Isabella is a healthy scratch, as he's been virtually every game this year

    It's so sad TT watching Funk explode through that hole for 8 yards knowing he'll probably never get the chance to be a starting RB.

    Funk might have got alot of carries this year but he got hurt. I'm just glad he is back and finally healthy. The key for him will be to find a way to stay healthy. He has that
    explosiveness for a bigger running back that very few guys his size have. He can really run and cut with the best of them. Please let him stay healthy. That 8 yard run was
    a think of beauty! Let's go Funk and let's go Rams. Yes it's disgusting how they avoided talking about Kupp in the pregame. NFL's Leading Reciever and Triple Crown Winner
    yet they don't talk about him. What a slap in the face. Kupp had the most amazing year of any receiver ever if you look at every category. He dominated!

    It's hard to describe the courage of this young man, Funk. His story is amazing. what he's doing with all the injuries he's had is nothing short of pure guts and determination and I don't mean that in the usual sense the way white players are described. This young man has all the skills, but he is truly a courageous young man as well. I hope he is rewarded someday by getting the opportunity he deserves.

    Gardeck, Vallejo, Allen and Watt all playing on defense for Arizona, Allen is the only starter though. Watt would be if he was healthier. Gardeck is definitely good enough to start.

    Kupp with a TD! Blow out so far.

    This Rams roster tonight warrants a serious count of White players. With both Weddle and the recently elevated Jake Gervase on the roster in addition to the very white offense already mentioned (with possibly two White reserve receivers!) we may be creeping towards some high numbers.

    Higbee has made some clutch catches as well.

    Rams have a good football team across the board. Kyler Murray getting exposed tonight. He just isn’t a very good quarterback.

    His struggles started when he lost Deandre Hopkins. Hopkins is a top 3 receiver and makes some really good catches. He also commands respect of the defense which opened up the offense for the Cardinals. Murray can't adjust to make up for his absence which a good QB should do.

    Exactly. Hopkins is outstanding. But a good quarterback overcomes. Maybe if Isabella actually got to play and stretch the field, results would be different. But the terrible coach in AZ loves to keep one of the league’s fastest players a a healthy scratch. Isabella needs to get out of Arizona. That team is a paper tiger as evidenced today and sinking fast.

    Kucksbury is my least favorite NFL head coach after the now fired Rodent. I expect the Cardinals to follow their usual pattern of being good for a season or two and then rapidly become a bottom feeder again, which is what they've been most of the time since moving to Arizona.

    Absolutely, look for them to regress substantially next year. Heck, the second half of this year they were decidedly average. Still irks me JJ Watt chose Arizona over Buffalo.

    That choice must have been made with non-football reasons as the most important factors?

    Why keep him on your roster if you're not going to play him? I don't get it.

    That's the pattern the Cardinals had when they were in St. Louis, though closer to .500 much of the time. The trope of good for a season or two then a bottom feeder was true of the Chicago Cardinals.

    They keep him on roster so no one else can have him that way they keep a very very dangerously fast white man down...if another team gets him, uses him and he explodes as we all know he will then it will expose the agenda on world wide television.......
