CARDINALS Scouting Report

Apparently, there is more to breaking down the Cardinals than just saying they suck, so here is a scouting report.

CARDINALS ON OFFENSE
Run: There could be two new starters on the offensive line. Center Nick Leckey might take over for Alex Stepanovich, and it's likely Chris Liwienski and Deuce Lutui will share time at right guard in place of the injured Milford Brown. They need to control defensive tackle Tommie Harris, who's playing as well as anyone in the NFL. The number of carries the Cardinals have tonight is more important than the yards they gain. They need to keep the game close so they can continue to run and keep the clock moving. If they fall behind by a couple of scores, it will put too much pressure on rookie quarterback Matt Leinart and the passing game. That's when the Bears' defensive linemen will pad their statistics.

Pass: The Bears play Cover 2Two, which means they don't give up many deep passes. Leinart must get rid of the ball quickly and not be afraid to take a sack. The Bears have seven interceptions and have recovered eight fumbles. If the Cardinals commit turnovers early, they don't have the talent or the wherewithal to keep this from being a blowout. Receiver Bryant Johnson is replacing the injured Larry Fitzgerald. Johnson will get some opportunities as the Bears focus on stopping Anquan Boldin.
