If only the Cardinals could combine Tim Hightower with Beanie Wells.

Arizona's two most recent plays showed why the team needs both of them. Hightower alertly caught the ball on third-and-10, converting a first down. Wells followed by delivering two stiff-arms during an impressive touchdown run.

The sooner the Cardinals can trust Wells on those third-down plays, the better they'll be. Wells is clearly the Cardinals' best runner.
