NFC West stock watch: falling

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

1. Anquan Boldin, WR, Cardinals. Two dropped passes and a critical fumble. Was that really Boldin out there Thursday night?

2. Julius Jones, RB, Seahawks. Jones spent six months calling out the Cowboys for letting him leave in free agency. He then lost a fumble after the Seahawks took their opening drive well into Cowboys territory.

3. Marc Bulger, QB, Rams. Three second-half interceptions hurt the Rams badly during a 16-12 defeat to the Dolphins.

4. Tim Hightower, RB, Cardinals. Seven carries for 7 yards against the Eagles.

5. Kurt Warner, QB, Cardinals. His MVP credentials took a hit with a three-interception game against the Eagles.

6. John Marshall, defensive coordinator, Seahawks. His starting safety, Deon Grant, questioned the Seahawks' approach on defense after a 34-9 defeat in Dallas.

7. Frank Gore, RB, 49ers. The 49ers' best offensive player had trouble holding onto the football. At least his fumbling didn't change the outcome.

8. Walter Jones, LT, Seahawks. Allowed two sacks to DeMarcus Ware while playing through what coach Mike Holmgren called leg problems.

9. Donnie Avery, WR, Rams. The rookie receiver finished without a reception for the first time since Week 2.

10. Clancy Pendergast, defensive coordinator, Cardinals. Arizona has allowed 85 points in its last two games and 313 for the season.
