Tough to recognize Seahawks, Cardinals

Counting ways the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals have changed since their most recent meeting at University of Phoenix Stadium one year ago (Nov. 15, 2009):

  • T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Anquan Boldin had 100-yard receiving games that day. They are now teammates in Baltimore.

  • Jim Mora's role as Seahawks coach last season required him to meet with Dick Stockton, Charles Davis and the rest of the Fox broadcast team assigned to the Seahawks-Cardinals game at University of Phoenix Stadium. Mora now works in the same Fox booth featuring Stockton and Davis.

  • Patrick Kerney, Lawrence Jackson, Leroy Hill, Josh Wilson, Deon Grant, Colin Cole and Jordan Babineaux started on defense for the Seahawks that day. None will start Sunday. Cole and Hill are the only injury scratches, although it's not clear whether Hill would have remained a starter if healthy.

  • The Cardinals and Seahawks each amassed more than 460 yards last time. Neither has exceeded 396 in a game this season. They have combined for 11 games with no more than 271 yards.

  • Kurt Warner passed for 340 yards with a 120.5 rating last time. Arizona has failed to finish with 340 net yards -- overall, not just through the air -- in six of its eight games since Warner retired.

  • Antrel Rolle, Karlos Dansby and Bryant McFadden were the Cardinals' leading tacklers last time. All play elsewhere.

Not that the NFL landscape changes much in a calendar year.
