D'Anthony Batiste was a terrible football player in 2012.
We don’t care how many sacks the offensive line allowed last year. It is the best unit in football every preseason according to us.
It was all the quarterbacks’ fault, anyway.
If they would have gotten the ball out faster, stepped up in the pocket more often, not rolled out to the right half the time and called the right plays, the line would have been able to do its job better.
If you think I’m kidding, get a load of this.
From 2010 to 2012, no team allowed more sacks than the Cardinals—a mind-blowing 162 sacks, or an average of 54 per season.
In 2008 and 2009, the two seasons in which Kurt Warner was under center for Big Red, the line allowed 54 sacks total.
Don’t tell Cardinals fans the quarterbacks had nothing to do with the line being as bad as it has been.
