The piling on continues. It was an awful night for the Cardinals on Thursday night but you know that by now. It carried over to this morning when Dan Patrick CRUSHED the Arizona Cardinals as "one of the worst offensive lines I've ever seen"
Watch the full explanation
We all saw how bad they looked, none of the Cardinals offensive lineman was able to figure out how to stop the blitz of the Oakland Raiders. Kyler Murray was 1-5 against the blitz and was sacked twice including a safety.It's not just what Dan and we all saw it's the numbers too that prove it might be a long season for Kyler Murray. Pro Football Focus ranked the Cardinals 30th in their 2019 pre-season rankings of offensive lines.
The Cardinals’ offensive line was a shambles last year. They allowed the league’s second-most total pressures (218), the fourth-most hurries (142), the second-most hits (42) and the second-most sacks (34), all while they ranked dead last among teams in snaps played per pressure (2.6). And even though they added J.R. Sweezy and Marcus Gilbert over the offseason, you shouldn’t be surprised to hear that they’re still pretty thin upfront. Center Mason Cole allowed the second-most pressures among centers as a rookie, while J.R. Sweezy has allowed pressure on 5.7% of his snaps since 2016, which is tied for 60th among the 98 guards who have played at least 500 pass-blocking snaps in that three-year period.
The Cardinals failed to address their offensive line in the first few rounds of this year's draft, for whatever reason Steve Keim did not think he should protect his prized QB with a young offensive lineman.
Is Dan Patrick crazy? or should we be worried?
