Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley struggles in first playoff appearance


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2015) Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley went 16 of 28 for 81 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in Arizona's 27-16 loss to Carolina. 

Lindley struggled to find his receivers throughout the game, with his leading receiver Larry Fitzgerald reaching just 31 yards. 

He was also sacked four times. The Cardinals totaled just 78 yards in the game, the fewest by any team in a playoff game in NFL history.

Lindley's season ends with just 644 yards passing and three touchdown passes in four games for the Cardinals. He also had six interceptions.


Cardinals name Ryan Lindley starting QB for wild-card game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2015) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians announced Thursday quarterback Drew Stanton (knee) will not play during Saturday's wild-card game at Carolina and Ryan Lindley will start a third straight game in his absence.

The Panthers are considered 6 1/2-point favorites against the Cardinals. The line opened at 4 1/2 points, according to VegasInsider.com.

Lindley will be facing a Panthers defense that allowed 227.8 passing yards per game during the regular season. Carolina also allowed 25 passing touchdowns in 16 games, while totaling 14 interceptions and 40 sacks.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Lindley completed 23 of 39 passes for 316 yards. He threw two touchdowns, but also added three interceptions during the contest.

Report: Cardinals reverse course, will start QB Ryan Lindley


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/25/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has changed his mind and will start quarterback Ryan Lindley, not rookie Logan Thomas, in Sunday's game at San Francisco, reports the Arizona Republic. Lindley hit 18 of 44 throws for 216 yards with an interception in the Week 16 loss to Seattle. He has not thrown a touchdown in 225 career pass attempts.

Arians earlier said he'd play Thomas for at least the first half. But that was before Thomas failed to inspire confidence at Wednesday's practice.

Thomas has appeared in two games, completing 1 of 9 throws. Starter Drew Stanton (knee) is not expected to be ready until the playoffs.

Arizona remains a 6-point underdog Sunday.


'No plans on how long' QB Logan Thomas plays Sunday


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/25/2014) After earlier saying Cardinals quarterback Logan Thomas would play at least the first half Sunday at San Francisco, coach Bruce Arians said there are "no plans on how long" the rookie will play, reports ESPN.com. Thomas will be making his first start after Ryan Lindley predictably flopped Week 16 against Seattle.

Thomas has appeared in two games, completing 1 of 9 passes. That completion was an 81-yard touchdown to running back Andre Ellington.

Quarterback Drew Stanton (knee) isn't expected to be ready until the playoffs, so Lindley is the only option behind Thomas. Lindley has zero touchdowns and eight interceptions in 225 career pass attempts. Arizona has not scored a touchdown in its past two games.

A 6-6, 250-pounder out of Virginia Tech, Thomas had a "shaky" start to Wednesday's practice before finishing "pretty strong," according to Arians.

Arizona is a 6-point underdog Sunday. The line opened at 4.5 before bettors pounced on the 49ers.

Despite their offensive struggles, the Cardinals can win the NFC West with a victory and a Seattle loss to the Rams.


Arians: '85 percent' chance Drew Stanton is ready for playoffs


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/24/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told SiriusXM NFL Radio there's an "85 percent" chance quarterback Drew Stanton will return from his knee injury for the team's first playoff game.

"He's going to practice some this week and we'll see how it goes," Arians said, via ESPN.com. "Do not plan on playing him this week unless it's absolutely necessary."

Rookie quarterback Logan Thomas will play at least the first half of the regular-season finale at San Francisco, Arians said, with Ryan Lindley available to relieve him. Arizona opened as a 4.5-point underdog, then the line moved to 6.

The Cardinals likely will enter the playoffs as a wildcard and play on the first weekend of January. Arizona needs Stanton (7 TDs, 5 INTs) to have a realistic chance of jumpstarting its offense.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Cardinals quarterback Logan Thomas  will to make his first career start on Sunday against the 49ers, a source told Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. Coach Bruce Arians announced that Thomas will be the starter over Ryan Lindley on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM radio soon after his press conference on Monday.

"We'll go with Logan, and to be honest with you, I'll have a quick hook," Arians said. "I want to see what he's got with a week of preparation for our future, and into the playoffs what's the best thing for us."

With Drew Stanton (knee) still sidelined, coach Bruce Arians went with Lindley in a Week 16 home loss to Seattle. Lindley completed 18 of 44 passes for 216 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.

Thomas has appeared in two games this season. He has only completed one of nine attempts. His only completion resulted in an 81-yard touchdown pass to Andre Ellington.

Arizona is currently a 4 1/2-point underdog at San Francisco.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley failed to find the end zone Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Lindley completed 18 of 44 passes for 216 yards. He threw one interception and fumbled during the contest. Lindley couldn't get much going against a rejuvenated Seahawks defense. When he did have opportunties to throw, Lindley had to settle for check-downs. He averaged just 4.9 yards per attempt. The Seattle pass rush gave him a hard time, coming up with four sacks. 

If Drew Stanton is unable to return, Lindley would take on the 49ers Week 17.

Larry Fitzgerald: Ryan Lindley 'can make all the throws'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/16/2014) While many believe the Cardinals are in trouble after losing their top two quarterbacks, veteran wideout Larry Fitzgerald is professing a lot of faith in new starter Ryan Lindley, who has not started a game in nearly two years.

"He's a really cerebral young man, he's been in the league for over three (years) and he works hard, extremely hard in the offseason," Fitzgerald told NFL Network. "We actually train together and he's a student of the game, really focused. ... We really believe in Ryan, he can make all the throws. We've just got to protect him, make some plays for him outside, run the ball. We're going to be just fine."

Appearing in six games in 2012, Lindley produced zero touchdowns and nine turnovers. He went 4 of 10 for 30 yards in finishing up the Week 15 win in St. Louis. He faces the Seahawks on Sunday night.

"Go sling it, baby. There's a reason you're here," Arians told Lindley in private when he named him the starter.

Stanton went down with a knee injury in the third quarter of Thursday's win over St. Louis. Arians said that Stanton "has a chance to return this season. It's a day to day thing." Arians was noncommittal when asked about his starter for Week 16 against Seattle.

"I'll sit down and think who I want to play."


Cardinals coach Arians explains why he chose Lindley over Thomas


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) When Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton went down with a knee injury in the third quarter of Thursday's win over St. Louis, coach Bruce Arians chose to go with Ryan Lindley over rookie Logan Thomas. He explained his reasoning following the game, per Pro Football Talk.

"I went with [Lindley] because of his experience, he has been in a stadium and played against these guys and this was not a time to put [Logan Thomas] out there," Arians said. "He is going to be a great player someday, but he is not ready for this yet. Ryan was more than ready; I really liked his poise and his confidence. I didn't feel like we had to scale it back, but I let him throw some balls and he made some nice throws."

Lindley completed four of his 10 passes for 30 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in relief. Stanton is due for an MRI on his injured knee, and depending on the severity of Stanton's injury, Lindley may get the start over Thomas come Week 16 against Seattle.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

"It helps when Logan is such a good kid," Lindley said. "If he came in here and was cocky and was kind of a jerk … but he’s such a good guy, I just want to help where I can. I just have to put my best foot forward. Regardless, you put yourself on tape, whether it is practice or preseason, and if it is my time, it’s my time.

"There is a time everyone gets tapped on the shoulder."
