Found November 09, 2011 on Eagles Eye:
The memory of the Cardinals flying into Baltimore a few weeks ago and nearly knocking off the Ravens is still fresh to me, so I must admit my perspective of the 2-6 team from Arizona coming into Philly this weekend is deeply biased.  All I know for sure about the Cardinals as a threat to the Eagles' chance to rebound to a 4-5 record on Sunday is: Kevin Kolb will not be pitching for Arizona (turf toe), and rookie Patrick Peterson has emerged as a bona fide punt return threat on special teams.Patrick Peterson is contributing as a DB in the nickel packages, but has not been nearly as spectacular there...where he's been lighting it up is on the return team. He's already taken 3 to the house this year.

Rams coach Spagnuolo would kick to Peterson again

After a day to mull it over, Steve Spagnuolo's answer was the same: The St. Louis Rams coach would have punted the ball to Patrick Peterson in the shadow of the Arizona Cardinals goal posts, and taken his chances again. Most Mondays have been tough for the Rams, who are 1-7 at the midpoint of the season, but usually because they've been trying to move past a blowout. This...
