The Seattle Seahawks are hosting the Arizona Cardinals this week in a match up of NFC West teams. The Arizona Cardinals might be in third place in the NFC West, but they’re no push-over with their 9-5 record. The Cardinals are still looking to avenge a 58-0 loss to the Seahawks last year.
Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians doesn’t think it matters since it is a new coaching staff and team, but defensive tackle Darnell Dockett disagrees.
“It lingers in the back of your head,” Dockett said, via the team’s website. “I don’t give a [expletive] what you think about, you remember 58-0. And the biggest thing is you remember how it got to 58-0. You are thinking, missed tackles, poor execution, couldn’t move the ball on offense, couldn’t stop anybody on defense, special teams turnovers. It was an ass-kicking in every phase of the game. When you sit back and deeply think about that, it makes you realize you are going to have to bring your best foot forward.”
