NFC West Notes: Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks



New Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury said CB Patrick Peterson’s six-game suspension is “disappointing, obviously.”

We’ll see,” Kingsbury said, via “We’ll see how it all plays out through training camp and what adjustments will be made. You don’t replace a guy like that, obviously, but on the bright side, you get to Week Seven and he comes back, that’s a huge boost.”

  • According to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, Peterson has been in consistent communication with the new coaching staff despite rumors of strife between himself and the front office. 
  • Regarding his offense, Kingsbury said his offense won’t be wide open “every single play” like many think. (Josh Weinfuss)


  • According to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, the Rams weren’t concerned with S Taylor Rapp‘s 4.76 40-yard dash time, and he would have been the pick at No. 31 if they hadn’t traded down. 
  • They referred to Rapp in the draft room as “the defensive Cooper Kupp as a player who makes up for a slow 40 time with great instincts. 


Seahawks HC Pete Carroll would love to decrease the use of instant replay to improve the game. 

“Get rid of — or at least decrease the use of — instant replay,” Carroll said via NBC’s Peter King. “I get all the reasons why we have instant replay, and technology has opened up a new world for us to get to this point. But I miss the human element of trusting the officials to make the calls in the moment and then the rest of us having to live with what they called. It was both fun and frustrating, but I really liked the game better when the officials were just as much a part of the game as the players.”
