The Arizona Cardinals are having tough times but Marion Grice is one of the top players in the draft for their running back and with Carson Palmer out and Drew Stanton in for him, Drew is a guy who you can count on to be a good back up. Larry Fitzgerald will come back in before the playoffs start.

Yes, the Cardinals are having tough times. They have struggled their past 4 games, going 2-2. [1] They have not been doing well offensively, not to mention the Seahawks are creeping up on their 9-4 record. [2] They have to play the Seahawks once again, already losing to them 19-3. They need to step it up or they will fall out of their division title spot. Marion Grice is not doing well for the Cardinals at all, he's played 7 games, and only has 35 yards. [3] They barely give him the ball whatsoever. Drew Stanton has been struggling along with the Cardinals for the past 4 games, having 4 TDs, and 5 INTs. Not to mention he has had only one game with over 300 yards the whole season passing. [4] Larry Fitzgerald is a good reciever, but he might struggle with his injury a bit.

sorry I was not debating but the if the Arizona cardinals don't make it to the NFC champion ship they probably will make another stand out next year. Carson Palmer will be in and Andre Ellington but Stephan Taylor is a good running back too. He is like the next Marshawn Lynch in breaking tackles.

Thank you, Pro.

"the Arizona cardinals don't make it to the NFC champion ship they probably will make another stand out next year. Carson Palmer will be in and Andre Ellington but Stephan Taylor is a good running back too. He is like the next Marshawn Lynch in breaking tackles."

This may be true, but we can't predict the future.. the Eagles were 4-12 one year and went 10-6 the next. [1] Also, that is you're opinion, but Carson Palmer is very overrated. He had 22 interceptions one year with only 24 TDs, and his average QB rating is an 86.3 which is only 19th on the all time list. [2] Again, Stephan Taylor only has 217 in his two years of playing... he is a young RB and needs development. [3]

Also, the Cardinals have on and off years, so we can't predict anything. One year they'll go 5-11, the next 12-4, and the next will be 8-8. [4]

Yes that is true but there is always time for improvement for Carson Palmer. We all know we can't predict the future. But do not forget the draft comes too. So there will be players that will make a difference in the team.

Carson Palmer is hurt, and Drew Stanton did not look good last night against the Rams, it will take a long time to improve.
