The blame is a combination of the increased coverage of Fitzgerald, Warner's other available options and the protection from the offensive line.
Despite the absence of lengthy plays, Fitzgerald registered his third-straight 1,000-yard-plus season.
Larry Fitzgerald & Early Doucet
Anquan Boldin will also be a factor. He'll once again enter the offseason with new contract hopes. An aspiring post-season will help. Boldin is dealing with a sprained left ankle that he injured in the third quarter last week. He was not in pads during Wednesday's practice.
In his absence, Steve Breaston historically excels. Also in the mix is Early Doucet and Jerheme Urban. Doucet's coming along nicely, but Urban's experience should outweigh Doucet's novelty.
Another way the Cardinals got points on the board this season, is their improving ground game. The emergence of Beanie Wells has warranted attention, and Tim Hightower can not be ignored by the Packers this week. Arizona capped the 2009 season with 16 rushing touchdowns, a team-high since 1998.
The opposition can't take the Cardinals defense lightly either. While inconsistency is the word, Arizona's defense features Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie who intercepted six passes in 09', which is tied for fifth-best in the league. Even with a bruised left kneecap, his elite speed is a threat to return a pick for six.
All in all, the Cardinals boast threats across the board to reach their magic number: 30.
