Week 12: St Louis Rams 31 Arizona Cardinals 17- Post Game Thoughts

The St Louis Rams surpass the Arizona Cardinals in the standings with a big win in the desert.  The Cardinals have not won a single game since Kevin Kolb went down in Week 6.  Ryan Lindley does not provide an answer at quarterback either; he threw three picks and no touchdowns.  Beanie Wells provided the two touchdowns in his return to action.  Rookie Janoris Jenkins returned two interceptions for touchdowns and Sam Bradford threw 37 yard touchdown passes to Chris Givens and Lance Kendricks.  Steven Jackson ran well in this game- he picked up 139 yards which is nice to see because he is one of the hardest workers in the league.  Now that the Cardinals are in the basement of the NFC West they need to think about who will be available for them to draft next year.  Ever since Kurt Warner retired they have had a problem at quarterback.  At first Kevin Kolb looked like he was a liability, and now he appears to be their best option.  If he is not the answer then they will need to draft a quarterback that will fit into their system, unless they are willing to really single one of the three QBs they have out and work with them this off-season.  For the Rams, they are on the rise with Jeff Fisher as the head coach.  They stand at 4-6-1 and are in no way a threat of making the playoffs but who knows what the future holds.  They have their quarterback for now.  If Arizona can’t find theirs then they may turn out to be NFC West bottom-feeders until they do.
