Arizona has been anemic on offense so far this season and must show improvement soon.
Cardinals: Week 8 News & Notes
"There have been games, against San Diego and Atlanta, where we (defenders) didn't (help)," Dockett said. "Let's not lose sight of why we came up here (to Seattle). We didn't come up here to play great defense. We came up here to win."
--The loss snapped a four-game winning streak over Seattle and put the Cardinals one game behind the Seahawks for the NFC West lead. The teams meet again in three weeks. "It's going to definitely be personal," Dockett said. "I think it's going to be beyond football at that point."
--Nose tackle Bryan Robinson didn't think the Cardinals defense played that well, despite holding the Seahawks to 13 points after three turnovers deep in Cardinals territory. Robinson pointed out that Seattle ran for 144 yards. "That doesn't sound impressive to me, and then Pete Carroll called off the dogs at the end," he said. "That was a classy move by him. I believe he knows he had to come see us in Arizona."
--Larry Fitzgerald said playing with different quarterbacks is difficult. "It's like playing blackjack," he said. "When somebody sits at the table, it just changes the hand a little bit."
--QB Max Hall suffered a concussion and will undergo tests early in the week to see if he can play against Tampa Bay. If Hall receives clearance, he will start.
--OLB Clark Haggans suffered a groin injury, and his status is day-to-day. Will Davis could start in his place. Alex Hall would then be the backup, and the club could activate O'Brien Schofield from the non-football injury list.
--NT Dan Williams suffered a hip flexor injury and will be evaluated as the week progresses. A backup, Williams could be replaced by Gabe Watson.
--RB Tim Hightower is in danger of losing his starting job after losing his third fumble of the season last Sunday. Beanie Wells could get his first NFL start in two seasons.
--DE Alan Branch recorded two sacks Sunday, equaling his total from his previous three NFL seasons. Branch hit the quarterback four times and forced a fumble. He is splitting time with Calais Campbell.
