The Cardinals first two units on both sides of the ball didn't play well during Saturday night's preseason game against the Houston Texans, and coach Ken Whisenhunt called some of the offensive mistakes in the first half "a joke."
"There were a couple of times in the first half, offensively, where it was a joke, to be quite honest with you," Whisenhunt said. "Plays that we had run 25 times in two weeks looked like it was the first time we'd run it."
There were errors in running pass routes, blocking assignments and finding holes. A botched handoff resulted in a fumble, and the starting tackles each gave up a sack.
"I would say everybody contributed to that, and I'm a little displeased with the whole group," Whisenhunt said. "Not just offense, defense as well."
