Indianapolis Colts’ Andrew Luck and Arizona Cardinals’ Carson Palmer (3) talk following overtime of an NFL football game Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017, in Indianapolis. Arizona won 16-13.
Bryan Broaddus, Dallas Cowboys.com writer and former NFL personnel man, joined The Shan & RJ Show on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] to talk all things Dallas Cowboys ahead of the team’s matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. Here are some of the highlights:
On Cardinals QB Carson Palmer…
Broaddus: What he’s doing is: everything for Arizona’s offense tends to go down the field. And that’s good to a point, but their plays when they win are on the outside of the numbers.
So, if you defend the deep outside, that tends to be where Carson Palmer likes to throw the ball, and he’s had a little bit of some arm trouble. Pressure tends to bother him in the pocket where it makes him throw the ball short. Because their routes are so long down the field, if you can get guys home on your rush – at least get some pressure – you can affect the way he throws the football.
The short, the intermediate stuff usually comes in the form of Larry Fitzgerald underneath, but just get ready for this ball to be going down the field. The Cowboys have go to make some plays down the field and outside of the numbers to really slow down this Arizona offense.
On Dez Bryant’s matchup with Patrick Peterson…
Broaddus: Peterson is going to travel with him everywhere he goes. So, just be ready for that.
It’s going to come down to the physicality of this game – will they allow Dez to push? Will they allow Peterson to hold? Those are the things you’ll have to deal with. I don’t feel like this is one of those games where you say, ‘OK, you can’t throw the ball to Dez Bryant.’ Even if you move him around, you’re going to have Patrick Peterson walking with him wherever he goes.
So, I feel like if you look at Arizona defensively, they’re one of those teams that they do have the great corner that can take you out, but in the other areas, they tend to play with guys that are those hybrid players – those strong safety-type of bodies. Tyrann Mathieu, [Justin] Bethel on the other side. He’s more of a true corner. But there’s a little bit bigger guy in that secondary for Arizona.
I don’t know if the coverage is going to be all that great for them like we saw in Denver and like we saw in New York, but they surely have one player that can take you out of this game.
