Thoughts and observations from the Cardinals' game against the Chargers on Saturday night:

I previously noted LaRod Stephens-Howling's excellent performance. I'm now watching the second half of the game on replay. Rookie linebacker Will Davis made a positive impact. He had a quarterback hurry after quickly sniffing out a play. Rookie right tackle Herman Johnson still looks good from what I am seeing. He has made significant improvement since minicamps, more evidence of Russ Grimm's impact as line coach.
