#1 It seems like more than ever , Mike McCoy trusted David Johnson last Sunday von laiyongcai92 14.12.2018 09:16

The first three plays went to Youth Justin Pugh Jersey Johnson against Seattle. That’s trust. They put more blockers in the box and put the onus on Johnson to make the perimeter defender miss. That’s trust. They lined him out as a receiver. About time, but that’s trust. Against, the 49ers, if McCoy trusts Johnson again, they should win.One of the areas that I thought McCoy improved was using different formations. It seemed like previously you was clear as day when the Cardinals were going to run. Sunday it would be under center with three wide receivers and a tight end. Or out of shotgun with four receivers. He spread Seattle out and it worked. San Francisco gave up over 100 yards to a Chargers rushing offense that has an offensive line that has struggled as much as Arizona’s.It goes back to what we talked about after week one. Giving a guy like Johnson the ball under 15 times a game in mind-boggling. We saw against the Seahawks that eventually, he’s going to break one. Even though Johnson only had three catches, his usage was so much better. It wasn’t anything crazy, either. Something as simple as this:The old “throw the ball to your best player” works. Give Johnson some confidence in space and I feel like it translates to him running better. We saw that Sunday and I believe we’ll see more of it against the 49ers. I believe he’ll break a long one off to the right side, an area where the 49ers struggle to stop the run.I do think it goes without saying that having a quarterback that can actually throw will help open things up for Johnson. I’m interested to see how much more the playbook opens up for Josh Rosen in his second start.Five bubble players to watch in the Arizona Cardinals preseason finale For most of the NFL the final preseason game is there to give players on the brink one last chance to show out on film.It gives young players a chance to play nearly an entire NFL game, accumulate more tape and then have that tape for future employment opportunities within the NFL.Yet, for some it is also a chance to make one final statement to make the roster on the team you are currently playing for.That’s what the question is for the Arizona Cardinals bubble players heading into tonight’s fourth and final preseason game of 2018.Can they make their case one last time and prove they deserve a spot on the Arizona Cardinals final 53?Here are five who will have to show well one last time to cement their spot.Cap Capi - The fan favorite Capi has been one of the better players in the NFL this preseason, but his position on the final 53 is precarious at best.With Vontarrius Dora looking like a lock Cheap Mason Cole Jersey , Benson Mayowa and Chandler Jones entrenched as starters and Markus Golden coming back from injury, the question becomes, do they keep five defensive ends.Capi is battling Jacques Smith for that fifth and final spot, who takes it?A.J. Howard - Howard only saw 25 snaps defensively in a crowded safety room, but he has played well throughout the preseason.He is a big presence who is physical and likes to hit.His biggest hurdle to overcome is he isn’t a special teams player.In their third preseason game, Howard saw one snap on special teams.Meanwhile, fellow UDFA rookie Ezekiel Turner played no snaps on defense, but saw 18 snaps on specials.That means Howard has to continue to play big on defense and show he has some potential to be a contributor on defense.Peli Anau - With the rash of injuries the Arizona Cardinals are dealing with on defense, specifically along the interior defensive line, keeping five defensive tackles seems likely.Anau is going to be in a battle with fellow lineman Pasoni Tasini for that spot, barring a free agent signing.Anau looked really, really good against Dallas http://www.cardinalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-mike-iupati-jersey , so let’s see if he can make it two in a row.Deatrick Nichols - One of the first players I thought had a chance to make the roster after UDFA signings were announced, Nichols has played a lot and played well.He is a physical corner with strong zone instincts, but the secondary of the Cardinals is a tough nut to crack.One thing Nichols has on his side is he does contribute on specials quite a bit.Trent Sherfield - Early in camp, Sherfield was the buzz about town, but since the action has started he has been mostly quiet on offense.Jess Root thinks he is on the Jaron Brown plan, which means a slow play to the offense, but an immediate contributor on teams, where he is playing nearly 50% of the snaps already.The question becomes, with the Cardinals lack of talent in the preseason at wide receiver, can they pass up a potentially more competent immediate impact player on offense for someone they see as more of a down the road type?Who are you watching tonight?
