Final Two Arizona Cardinals make the NFL 100

Two more Arizona Cardinals will make the NFL 100 tonight Two more Arizona Cardinals players will be revealed tonight Wed June 29, 2016 on the NFL 100.  After some chatter on whether or not Carson Palmer would make the list, it seems like it is all but assured he will, barring something like David Johnson finding his way in the top 20 for a part time rookie season. Palmer will be making his first appearance on the NFL 100, after a career year in 2015 that saw him set career highs in yards (4,671) touchdowns (35) and a career low in interceptions over a full season (11).  What Palmer did in...

Who is the most overrated Bengals player of the last 20 years?

Carson Palmer? Chad Johnson? T.J. Houshmandzadeh? Who is your pick for the most overrated Bengals player of last 20 years? Every team in every sport has them: Players who are a rated by fans and/or the media higher than they probably deserve to be. This is known as being overrated. For the Bengals, there's no shortage of players in the past two decades who you could make that argument for. Whether it was Carson Palmer, Chad Johnson, Deltha O'Neal, Marvin Jones, Domata Peko or Andre Smith, there's been several players who you could make this claim for and against. The Sporting News...

Bengals' 10 best positional matchups in 2016: No. 5 Andy Dalton vs Broncos' Secondary

Andy Dalton should get his next chance to play against the Broncos on September 25, 2016. The Bengals will face off against the World Champion Denver Broncos in their 2016 Week 3 home opener. Providing both teams live up to their expectations in 2016, it should be the kind of game that gets a lot of attention not just from Bengals and Broncos fans, but the entire NFL community. It's actually a bit surprising that the game is currently set to be featured on CBS at 1:00 p.m. ET that day. That's especially true since the Sunday Night Football game that week features the Cowboys and Bears, who...

Carlos Dunlap's production highlights value Bengals received from 2013 extension

The Bengals have used the past few offseasons to extend their core players. In 2013, defensive end Carlos Dunlap received an extension that has provided great value because of the Dunlap's outstanding production. Sometimes Draft risks end up paying off. It's why some teams just can't stay away from very talented youngsters in the annual NFL festivities, despite their red flags. Because of his contributions on and off-the-field for the Cincinnati Bengals since 2010, few fans readily remember Carlos Dunlap being viewed as a "boom or bust" player by some pundits, who pointed at an inconsistent...

Leon Hall picking between Bengals and Cardinals, per report

It continues to look as though Leon Hall is deciding between re-signing with the Bengals, or joining a new team for the first time since being Drafted by the Bengals and leaving Cincinnati for the Arizona Cardinals. The prolonged free agency of Leon Hall should be coming to an end soon. We already know Hall wants to make his decision as early as this week, and it's believed that the Arizona Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals are two teams in the running for his services. Jordan Raanan of NJ.com took it a step further with his recent report that those are the two teams Hall is deciding...

80 days until the Arizona Cardinals Open the Season

Here are some good stats for the Cardinals and the number 80 There are 80 days until the Arizona Cardinals kick off the 2016 NFL season, and with that a look at some stats with the number 80 in them throughout Cardinals history. The number 80 has been a wasteland of talent for the Cardinals, especially the Arizona Cardinals. Matt Leinart's quarterback rating in 2008 was 80.2. Jim Hart's quarterback rating in 1973 was 80 even. Carson Palmer completed an 80 yard pass for his second longest completion of his Arizona Cardinals career in 2014.  Do you remember who it was thrown...

Arizona Cardinals Have One Player in the Top 10 on Offense in NFC

PFF Continues to give their off season rankings and this time an Arizona Cardinal makes an appearance as one of the ten best offensive players in the NFC. Pro Football Focus' NFL 101 lead to some good discussion and now they are taking where they ranked players and creating spin off work. In this iteration, Gordon McGuinness takes a look at the ten best offensive players in the NFC. At number ten, comes the one and only Carson Palmer, here is what McGuinness had to say: "Were it not for that performance in the NFC Championship game, Palmer would probably be higher on this list.

Arizona Cardinals 53 Man Roster Projection

ESPN tried to project the Arizona Cardinals 53 man roster. Here was what they said and my thoughts. Cardinals 53 man roster projections have started trickling in, and like always, I think getting a 53 based on the names on the 90 man roster now is easy, but what names will be added? Josh Weinfuss, the Arizona Cardinals blogger at ESPN, gave his 53 man roster projections with some commentary. Here are my thoughts on his 53. QB: Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton, Matt Barkley Makes sense, Barkley gets the "in case of emergency" tag again, and a guy like Jacob Coker at best ends up on the practice...

Jameis Winston got really lucky with his interceptions last year

Jameis Winston threw 15 interceptions last year. That was a pretty low total for a rookie who started the season with seven interceptions in four games, and came into the NFL with a lot of questions about his propensity for risky throws and missing players in underneath coverage. 15 was a low number, and casual observation suggests Winston should have thrown many more. Football Outsiders’ charting certainly suggests this is true: they noticed seven dropped interceptions last year, which is tied for third-most with Carson Palmer. Only Blake Bortles and Ryan Fitzpatrick got luckier than...

Leon Hall may sign with NFL team next week

The Dolphins, Cardinals, Giants, Falcons and even Bengals have shown interest in Leon Hall this offseason. Is he about to make a decision and pick from one of those teams? It's been a long offseason for Cincinnati Bengals corner Leon Hall, as his NFL career appears to be nearing an end within the coming years. After all, the 31-year-old Hall (turns 32 in December) has seen his play decline in recent years, mainly due to the after effects of two torn Achilles' tendons. He's also coming off offseason back surgery, which has led to him not signing with a team until the summer as he...

Carson Palmer's last opponent

Palmer has been brilliant in his time in Arizona, but his last hurdle may be too much to overcome. One thing in sports remains undefeated and that is father time. For Carson Palmer, there may be no bigger opponent left to take on. Through his three seasons Palmer has overcome ineffectiveness and injury through his first two seasons to put up the best numbers of his career in 2016. He also was able to get the playoff monkey off his back, leading the Cardinals to a gritty win over the Green Bay Packers. Yet, heading into his 13th NFL season, Palmer still has to prove himself, whether that is...
