Earlier in the drive he took a shot in the face. He showed his toughness and rifled something down the middle.” – / 25 Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact It’s safe to say the first team offense struggled in the first half of the Arizona Cardinals preseason game against the Oakland Raiders.Quarterback Carson Palmer threw two interceptions and the offensive line couldn’t figure out how to handle the Raiders pass rusher Khalil Mack.“Offensively, there were a lot of issues, to say the least,” general manager Steve Keim told Doug and Wolf Monday morning on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “I think, to some degree, it was a great wake-up call. This team has read for the past several weeks about its potential, but potential doesn’t mean anything if you don’t execute, if you don’t make plays and if you don’t play physical.”center_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Your browser does not support the audio element.
