Rosen watch: 3 throws from the Saints game As they should be http://www.authenticsarizonacardinals.com/cheap-jamar-taylor-jersey , all eyes were on first round rookie quarterback Josh Rosen. Today I’ll be reviewing Rosen’s performance against the New Orleans Saints. On his second throw, it felt like a good performance was on the way. You don’t usually say that on an incompletion. The ball was tipped at the line of scrimmage. Rosen reached out and batted the ball down. It was a heedy play by the rookie and a sign of things to come. Throw 1: Rookie makes it look routineOn his third throw, Rosen made a routine play that many young quarterbacks would panic in a similar situation. On a play-action drop back, Rosen had “color flash” off of the right side of the defense. Some quarterbacks might drop their eyes and panic even with a clean pocket in front of them.Rosen keeps calm, climbs the pocket and delivers a strike to Chad Williams. Throw Two: the TouchdownOn the touchdown pass to Christian Kirk, there was a lot to like by Rosen. Again I’ll preach patience here. You can see him scanning the field waiting for someone to get open. Nobody was open.So Rosen threw Kirk open. There’s some zip on this throw. There’s even more accuracy on it. Throw 3: the UCLA specialWith more throws as the game goes along Rosen looks so much more decisive than he did a week ago. This next throw is something he was very good at during his tenure at UCLA. Manipulating the safeties with his eyes. Below the defense is in Cover 2 and the Cardinals run a classic Cover 2 beater, 4 verticals. Rosen knows where he wants to go the entire time.Rosen looks left Youth Chandler Jones Jersey , holding the safety, and once the receiver clears the linebacker he bounces back right and hits Holmes in stride just before he gets to the safety.He had a similar throw down the seam in the two minute drill just before the house. Rosen was dealing. I thought yesterday was so much better than last week. Rosen was avoiding sacks, not putting the ball in harms way, and just in better rhythm all-around. I didn’t think there was a reason for Rosen to play any more. He showed everything you’d want to see in the second quarter. Rosen was superb on Saturday.Arizona Cardinals offense looks ahead of defense early in camp We’re three days into Arizona Cardinals camp 2018 and there hasn’t been much in the way of surprises yet.While Trent Sherfield is turning heads, the wide receiver position was always wide open, we just hoped that someone that was “highly invested” in would be the one turning heads.Yet, through three practices Youth Chase Edmonds Jersey , no matter who I talk with that was in person or the reports that come out after practice, there is one thing I’ve noticed.The offense is ahead of the defense so far.That is a bit surprising when you consider the defense was going to be the strength of the Cardinals this season.While it was only the first day of practice, the offense has set the tone early with a physical offensive line and a quick, accurate passing game.You also have to take into consideration that the defense is learning.This isn’t year four with James Bettcher, this is year one with Al Holcomb and a brand new defensive philosophy.This is new in a number of ways and it will take some time.Maybe that’s the most surprising thing overall. The Cardinals needing time on defense.Yet, it shouldn’t be as surprising as it seems to be to many鈥?myself included.
