Rosen’s debut: How did it stack up against the other rookie QBs?

Rookie Josh Rosen had his preseason debut on Saturday night. How did it compare to the other QBs from the 2018 draft class? Saturday night’s first preseason game was exciting for a lot of reasons—David Johnson breaking off big runs, Chase Edmonds body surfing into the end zone, that wild 4th quarter. And, oh yeah, we got the win. But I think most fans tuned in for one reason: to see #10 overall pick QB Josh Rosen’s first NFL action. But before the Redbirds picked Rosen, they were connected to each of the other 2018 rookie QBs at some point during the draft process. So it’s only...

A week ago, here were my favorites heading into game 1 of the pre-season ( * with this week’s updates at each position): QB (3): 9-Sam Bradford; 3-Josh Rosen; 6-Charles Kanoff Same—-Kanoff is a better system and long-term fit than Glennon.

Arizona Cardinals get out early, hold on late in preseason win over Los Angeles Chargers

The Arizona Cardinals scored on their first drive of the preseason and then held on for a win over the Chargers. The first drive of the Steve Wilks era gave us a look at what to expect from the Arizona Cardinals in their 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. After the Arizona Cardinals forced a three and out on the Chargers first offensive possession, and then we saw what Wilks and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy have preached all offseason. The Cardinals went 45 yards on eight plays, lead by a pair of 14-yard David Johnson runs, into Chargers territory. The offensive line opened two...

Ranking the Top 10 AZ Cardinals training camp storylines of the last decade

Where does Josh Rosen fit into the biggest training camp storylines of the last 10 years of Cardinals history? NFL Training Camps have plenty of narratives. Some of them feature around players holding out, or from injuries or surprise players who seem set to take the NFL by storm. But in the last 10 years, what have been the biggest ones for the Arizona Cardinals? We’ll count them down now, focusing only on training camp, and not preseason game, storylines.

Arizona Cardinals lining David Johnson out wide and giving additional chances to other RB's

The Cardinals offense will utilize David Johnson in a number of ways. There was an interesting tweet that came out of practice two days ago. It may have been a bit innocuous at the time, but it caught my eye. RB David Johnson has been split out regularly today. Not a surprise considering his receiving skills.— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) July 30, 2018 The Arizona Cardinals obviously have a dynamic option at running back in David Johnson, but getting him into different positions is key to get him the ball in space. Yet, the other question is, when that happens, who comes on the field...

Steve Wilks talks about change in training camp schedule for Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals have less open practices and more early practices than under Bruce Arians. Day three has come and gone for the Arizona Cardinals in Cards Camp 2018 and the pads are officially on. It brought out the physicality that Head Coach Steve Wilks has talked about frequently since he took over. It was most apparent on the offensive line as the Cardinals did quite the job clearing the way for David Johnson in offense versus defense work. Now, as we settle into the next couple weeks of camp, we will have to deal with no open practices on Tuesday or Wednesday, the next one coming on...
