Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories Outside of them, the bulk of Arizona’s starters is considered to be either “average,” “below average” or “poor,” though only receiver Andre Roberts grades out in the latter group. – / 36 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments Share In a piece meant to judge every team’s starting units, the Cardinals are noted to have just nine players who are above average.Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, not surprisingly, is regarded as a “difference maker,” as is defensive end Calais Campbell. Linebacker Daryl Washington and cornerback Patrick Peterson are said to be “high quality,” while quarterback Carson Palmer, running back Rashard Mendenhall, tackle Bobby Massie, linebacker Karlos Dansby and defensive tackle Dan Williams are considered “good.”– I’ve given both Palmer and Mendenhall the benefit of the doubt respectively due to the former working in a more conducive environment, and the latter being healthy.– I’m viewing Bobby Massie more on the second half of his season than the first, but did consider both.– Before Dockett gets an upgrade he needs to show something and not just talk about how badly Ray Horton’s scheme affected him — it hardly slowed Campbell did it?
