  1. Here is the thing. He didn't get the ball when Williams went down. He ran the ball once while Williams was in. They didn't give him a go when Williams lost, what was it, 10 yards on 3 carries? You can't get do damage if you don't get the ball. He isn't getting the ball. Now Smith and Stephen-Howling coming back, looks like a committee to me. Plus, Williams might be back for next week. There isn't enough time. Look at the schedule, BUF, MIN, SFO, GNB, BYE, @ATL and then Beanie will be back (I think that timetable is right). I doubt he gets the ball next week as a feature back, and if
  2. Coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed that rookie Ryan Williams isn't part of the no-huddle scheme because he's not far enough along in his development to handle it.The Cardinals had no shot of running the ball successfully against the Dolphins last week, so they quickly scrapped it and went no-huddle.

You must have also missed Powell's return game. He looked explosive and nearly won the OT on the opening kickoff but got taken out by the kicker. The guy was
  4. The biggest boost for Powell isn't his performance, but that Williams did nothing to wow the coaches and get more carries. That helps incredibly for him going forward into the next game. Hopefully Powell can get 7-9 touches next week and do something with it.
  5. I'm so confused I'm crying. Just tell me to pick him up or not. **continues sobbing**
