Redskins Cardinals second quarter

Rich TandlerSenior Analyst ISeptember 21, 2008

15:00—We'll see here how Zorn reacts to a takeaway in opponent's territory. I like going for the TD right off the bat.

14:49—Devin Thomas now has two passes thrown to him and two PI calls. No offsetting call here and it's first and 20. Zorn didn't go for it all but It was a deep out.

Turn the takeaway into points. Not maximizing the opportunity but not bad.

12:15—Larry Fitzgerald is a monster. He completely blocked my view of the DB on a slant for a first down.

11:33—Speaking of monsters, Golston just engulfed Warner for a seven-yard loss on a sack.

10:42—ARE back to return the punt this time. He did his usual zigzag and got his average of six yards on the return.

9:21—Campbell was off target a couple of times in that three and out.

9:09—45-yard punt by Brooks. He's not in danger of getting cut at halftime now.

7:35—Arizona on the move on the ground again. Their vaunted passing attack hasn't done much, but they are moving the chains with James and Hightower.

3:33—Weak PI call on Rogers. He barely made contact with Fitzgerald and the pass seemed to be uncatchable anyway.

A chance for a statement drive here. Arizona gets the kickoff so a score here would be big.

2:00—After two runs, it's third and one. The offense has been reasonably efficient, why not get out there throwing and get downfield? Now if the Skins don't convert the Cardinals get the ball back with plenty of time.

1:55—Another run up the gut has them doing a measurement. It looks like he's short by a yard. I don't get it. I guess the statement was that our QB can't get it done.

1:14—Great boot by Brooks and a penalty has Arizona back at the three. Let's see if the Skins use their timeouts if they hold them.

1:06—Yes, they use their first after a first-down gain of about three.

0:56—Arizona gets a first down on three runs so they'll come out in the hurry-up. They do have a timeout left.
