Does the Cardinals' Loss Rest on Warner's Shoulders?

Deja vu. The Cardinals go ahead with two and a half minutes remaining only to see their defense (a 3-4 defense!) collapse. Then, Warner just didn't have what it took to lead a comeback drive.

Does this remind anyone of anything?

That's right. It's almost exactly the same thing that happened in last year's Super Bowl. Brady led the Patriots to a late touchdown only to watch his defense (a 3-4 defense!) collapse. Then, Brady just didn't have what it took to lead a comeback drive.

So, how many the of crack Journal Sentinel writers think that the Patriots' and Cardinals' losses demonstrate failings of Brady and Warner?

  1. Um, the Steelers defense is a "3-4 Defense!" too. ;)

  2. True. But my point, is that the idea that the 3-4 is some magical fix is totally wrong.

    It's about personnel.

  3. It is. It's about how you USE that personnel, which is why you won't be seeing a 'true' 3-4 in Green Bay in 2009. I think we'll see a hybrid with a whole lot of 4-3 thrown in, at least at first.
