State Barn Is Not On Our Side

State Barn Is Not On Our Side

“State Farm is on your side.” Yes, if you are a Redskins, Bears, Seahawks or Broncos fan who can afford to make the trip to Arizona. “Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?” Oh, U of P! Where did you go and why did you leave us? You were the high-tech, elaborate nest for our thundering Red Sea. So much so, you never wanted to open your roof so that the deafening roars of the Red Sea could draw the opposing left tackle off-sides three times a game. You’ve been replaced—-your letters have been taken down for good and are now lying in a trash dump far out into the wasteland. And in your...

Has Steve Wilks lost the Arizona Cardinals?

Has Steve Wilks lost the Arizona Cardinals?

The Cardinals head coach could be losing the locker room after the latest blowout loss. Quotes are a difficult thing to interpret and the meaning behind quotes can be even more difficult to grasp of. That’s why Markus Golden’s post game comments to Josh Weinfuss on Steve Wilks is something to keep an eye on, but also not something to overreact too much to. Unless it is. Cardinals DE Markus Golden on what coach Steve Wilks said after the 45-10 loss to Denver Thursday: "Same thing he always say after a loss. You have to go fix it and get back in the office and fix it tomorrow. Go to...

Brandon Williams No Good, Very Bad Day

Brandon Williams No Good, Very Bad Day

The 26-year-old’s nightmare performances continue in loss to the Broncos Once upon a time, Steve Keim drafted Brandon Williams in the third round of the 2016 draft to be the starter opposite Patrick Peterson. But that didn’t work out. Steve Wilks gave up on the Williams project by signing Bene Benwikere and trading for Jamar Taylor in the off-season. As a result of William’s struggles to learn the basics of the cornerback position, he was restricted to special team duties only. Even then, his performance on special teams was a disaster during the preseason, missing multiple tackles...

A Fan’s Answers To the Cardinals’ Woes

A Fan’s Answers To the Cardinals’ Woes

In all three phases of football, the Cardinals’ coaches are not making the necessary adjustments or making maximum use of their personnel. Look, I am just a long-time fan and a former high school head coach. Could my knowledge of football translate over to what is ailing the Arizona Cardinals? Probably not. But, I am going to try to give this the best shot I can. The first person I would let go is GM Steve Keim. At this point, Cardinals’ fans know all the positives and negatives of Keim’s tenure as GM. The present reality is that his vision for sustained success is not bearing fruit....

Broncos clobber the Arizona Cardinals as they trot to a 45-10 victory.

Broncos clobber the Arizona Cardinals as they trot to a 45-10 victory.

The Cardinals suffer their sixth loss as they continue to be winless at home. Welp... I know a lot of us went into this with low expectations - but even the glass-half-empty crowd has to admit that was more of a disaster than could have been imagined. The Cardinals started in disastrous fashion, as things got lopsided early behind two pick sixes and multiple deep bombs from Denver. Rosen also played as rough as we’ve seen him, missing throws and not seeing the field. Rosen had two on three to the left because Denver adjusted late. Dude wide open on the left hash on that INT. Chalk that...

Byron Leftwich could soon be the Arizona Cardinals Offensive Coordinator

Mike McCoy’s time in the NFL could be at an end With the ineffectiveness of the Arizona Cardinals offense in an impending blowout loss to the Denver Broncos, there could be some major changes coming to their coaching staff. Specifically for Mike McCoy, his job as the Cardinals’ offensive coordinator could be coming to an end. Cardinals’ QB coach Byron Leftwich has been what many consider to be an offensive coordinator in waiting. Might not be waiting much longer...— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 19, 2018 After ranking last on almost every statistical category, it...

Arizona Cardinals vs Denver Broncos Second Half Game Thread

Arizona Cardinals vs Denver Broncos Second Half Game Thread

I’m dealing with a mean sinus infection right now and I don’t know if the sensation of my eyeballs wanting to pop out of their sockets is coming from that or having watched this game.That was as much of a disaster as could be in the first half. The first drive alone saw a inside run into an 8 man box, followed by a timeout, then the first pick six. It was all downhill from there. (On the bright side I started the Broncos DST in my home fantasy league...) A couple of deep touchdown passes and another pick 6 off a miscommunication between Rosen and Nelson later and this team would find...

Talk about the Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football. It is time. The Arizona Cardinals one and only prime time game of 2018 is here and they get the 2 and 4 Denver Broncos. It is Cardinals, Broncos on Thursday Night Football!
