Coordinator unsung architect of Arizona offense

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Cardinals Quarterback Kurt Warner says offensive coordinator Todd Haley doesn't get the credit he deserves in building and directing an offense that has the Cardinals at 5-3 with a three-game lead in the NFC West.

The Cardinals are second in the NFL in total offense and passing. Warner ranks second in yards passing with 2,431.

Larry Fitzgerald is third receiving at 742 yards and fifth in receptions with 49. Anquan Boldin leads the league in touchdown catches with eight even though he missed two games with injuries. Rookie Tim Hightower has rushed for six scores.

Warner also praised Haley's willingness to accept input saying he's open to suggestions.
