Deep trouble? Cardinals hope not

1/6/2010

The Cardinals' struggles in the deep passing game stands in the back of my mind as something that could hurt them in the playoffs.

As noted Sunday, Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin have combined for one reception covering 40 yards or longer this season, down from eight during the 2008 regular season and six during the playoffs.

The Packers' Greg Jennings and Donald Driver have combined for 11 such plays this season.

Cards dig the long ball?

The chart shows Kurt Warner's stats when throwing passes 15 yards or longer downfield across two sets of games, according to ESPN Stats & Information. He did not play in Week 12.
