GLENDALE, Ariz. – Observed and heard in the locker room after the Cardinals’ 35-6 loss to Seattle:
Defensive tackle Frostee Rucker said he didn’t take offense to Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch grabbing his crotch as he dove into the end zone after a 79-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. “It’s childish,” Rucker said.
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said running back Kerwynn Williams didn’t play much Sunday night because “he’s not the best pass blocker that we have.” Another reason was because the Cardinals didn’t run the ball as much as the previous two weeks and the packages in place better fit Marion Grice and Stepfan Taylor.
Cornerback Patrick Peterson said upon finding out that the Seahawks gained almost 600 yards of offense: “I almost passed out. That is unacceptable for us, especially for our standards.”
