-- QB Jeff Blake, who left in the first quarter with a heel injury -- and two interceptions -- is expected to be ready for Sunday's home game against the Green Bay Packers.
-- QB Josh McCown, who played the final three
quarters, showed why the team should have invested in a veteran backup. McCown
saw a 7-0 deficit quickly get out of hand because of his interceptions and
fumbles. He is a young inexperienced player with potential who clearly is not
ready to be thrown into this sort of situation.
-- WR Bryant Johnson, getting his first pro start after being selected in the first round
(17th overall) in April, had a chance to make his case. Three of the top six
wide outs were injured and not playing. Instead, Johnson fumbled away the first
ball thrown to him and never really did anything of note despite seven catches.
-- WR Anquan Boldin, the NFL rookie of the week after the
opener, followed his 10-catch pro debut with eight more, numbers inflated
because the Cardinals were so far behind so quickly and had to throw. His 62
receiving yards were a far cry from his 210 on opening day. Still, the
second-rounder from Florida State each week is establishing himself as a bona
fide NFL receiver, one of the few good high draft choices the team has made in
-- SS Adrian Wilson, burned on a 66-yard touchdown
pass from Matt Hasselbeck to Darrell Jackson, is showing alarming signs of lack
of responsibility and discipline. His judgments and pursuit angles haven't
exactly been classic, either. On top of that, he twice was flagged for
unnecessary roughness for out-of-bounds hits.
