The Cardinals' biggest worry in the offseason shouldn't be what personnel the team is picking, but rather who is picking the personnel. It's time for the Cardinals to upgrade their staff because the people they have in those positions aren't making the correct decisions in later rounds. There's no doubt Arizona has made excellent decisions in the first rounds of recent drafts, but the later rounds are where teams are built, and their lack of production from those picks are dooming this team.
Question on the Seahawks: What's Mike Holmgren's approach going into their final road game?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Former Cardinals SS Pat Tillman, who gave up a $3.6 million NFL contract to join an Army Rangers unit, visited his former teammates. ... Seahawks DT John Randle sacked McCown in the second quarter, boosting his NFL total to 142. He also recovered a fumble in the third. ... Arizona G Leonard Davis had a sprained thumb placed in a cast in the third but returned. ... Seattle WR Darrell Jackson left for X-rays on his left ankle in the first, but is expected to play next week.
