Arizona Cardinals and their players continue to lead in the community through their charitable work

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Throughout their time in Arizona, the Cardinals have had a major impact on the city they are playing in, and the state they represent. Despite ups and downs on the field, off the field the Arizona Cardinals have been and continue to be leaders in the community and they do so in communities all over the state. This last week the team donated their third turf field in conjunction with the NFL and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), from the team: The Arizona Cardinals Football Club has partnered with the National Football League...

Wilson as GM: Nonsense or Perfect Sense?

Wilson as GM: Nonsense or Perfect Sense?

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Yesterday, in my plea for Michael Bidwill to promote Adrian Wilson to GM, one Cardinals’ fan , TheBros201, wrote: “What nonsense. Bleeding Cardinal Red, and being a fan favorite are not good reasons. And “because Jacksonville is willing to do it” is hilarious.” What’s nonsense is you thinking that the only reasons why so many Cardinals’ fans like myself would like to see Adrian Wilson promoted to GM are token and unreasonable. For one, the person that Cardinals’ fans and players can thank as much as any other for the drafting...

Should the Cardinals 2021-2022 season be considered a success?

Should the Cardinals 2021-2022 season be considered a success?

You wonder if Kyler Murray and the Cardinals would consider this season a success after how it ended. | Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Only one team can win the Super Bowl, but there are other ways to measure success. With that in mind, should this season be considered a success for the Arizona Cardinals? It’s been over a week, and I’m still pretty disgusted with the way the 2021-2022 season ended for the Arizona Cardinals. That seems to be a pretty common theme around these parts as you look at some of the recent RotB headlines: “Arizona Cardinals end season...

GM and Head Coach hires slowly coming together in 2022 NFL offseason

GM and Head Coach hires slowly coming together in 2022 NFL offseason

Photo by David Eulitt/ As the NFL offseason continues, it is odd to see most teams slowly making decisions regarding their head coaching and general manager deicsions. Last two times the Arizona Cardinals hired head coaches, Steve Wilks in 2018 and Kliff Kingsbury in 2019, they were done by this time. Of course, the Cardinals already had their GM in house in Steve Keim, so what about those hiring GM’s as well? Last year, SB Nation had tracked seven GM hires and six coaching hires by January 21, 2021. This year, we have the New York Giants and Chicago Bears GM as the...

Cardinals’ Free Agents: Market Values

Cardinals’ Free Agents: Market Values

Michael Chow-Arizona Republic / USA TODAY NETWORK Yesterday on Twitter, Kyle Odegard posted PFF’s projected “annual values for the Cardinals’ free agents” and I felt compelled to offer what I consider more realistic assessments. Although, the salary cap will be significantly more than last year’s, I am of the belief that aside from the first two days of lavish spending, after the market settles down, free agent contracts will trend toward the modest side. In my opinion, the only Cardinals’ free agent who might get signed over the first two days is OLB/DE...

NFL overtime rules come into question again after Kansas City Chiefs beat Buffalo Bills

NFL overtime rules come into question again after Kansas City Chiefs beat Buffalo Bills

Photo by Jamie Squire/ 13 seconds was all it took for Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs to completely devastate the Buffalo Bills and their fans. Many are now rehashing old arguments about the NFL overtime rules, and while I agree that it sucks for the Bills to lose the way they did, they had their chances. People will complain that Josh Allen never got his shot in overtime, that he had played as well and maybe even better than Patrick Mahomes in the playoff classic. While the NFL overtime rules are imperfect, they are well known and established. They also were...

Arizona Cardinals projected to receive three compensatory picks

Photo by Norm Hall/ The Arizona Cardinals need to add talent in the 2022 NFL Draft. We can discuss the merits of who is picking or developing the draft picks, but the reality was obvious this year... The Cardinals need their draft picks to start being contributors. This offseason could add three (maybe four) compensatory draft picks according to Over the Cap. Over the Cap has the Cardinals getting three compensatory picks right now: 6th round pick for losing Kenyan Drake7th round pick for Dan Arnold7th round pick for Angelo Blackson It is interesting because of A.J....

Could the Arizona Cardinals need to start a search for a new defensive coordinator?

Could the Arizona Cardinals need to start a search for a new defensive coordinator?

Photo by Nick Cammett/ It is a single tweet and means nothing overall, and while we will wait for a bigger name to come out and potentially corroborate this tweet, we as an Arizona Cardinals site will continue to monitor the situation closely. Matt Cannata is speculating heavily, but he had this to say on Vance Joseph. Unless the #Dolphins are on a secret spy mission trip for their next head coach, then I think the next HC will be Vance Joseph.Connecting all the dots and putting pieces of the puzzle together based on what we know leads me to that speculative...

Red Rain: Reversing the Arians Curse and Top 5 In-Home UFA Priorities

Red Rain: Reversing the Arians Curse and Top 5 In-Home UFA Priorities

Ever since Bruce Arians’ hubris woke up the sleeping giant that has become the Los Angeles Rams, it now, to quote a Shakespearean phrase, is more apparent than ever that Arians cast a “plague on both houses,” both the Cardinals’ and the Buccaneers’. Over the course of the five years that Sean McVay has been the Rams’ head coach, here is how his team has fared against the Cardinals and Bruce Arians: vs. Cardinals, McVay is 10-1 (outscoring the Cardinals 335 - 162, 30.5 - 14.7 on average) vs. Bruce Arians, McVay is 5-1 (3-0 vs. Tom Brady) To add insult to injury —-...

Kansas City Chiefs open as touchdown favorites over Cincinnati Bengals

Photo by Andy Lyons/ In what was one of the most entertaining and enthralling games in NFL history, the Kansas City Chiefs somehow outlasted the Buffalo Bills. It is one of the most painful losses I can remember in recent times, and the Bills will have to find a way to overcome that. Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Bengals got some interesting luck with Ryan Tannehill throwing his third interception of the game and setting up Evan McPherson for a game winner. It is another matchup of two incredibly young and talented quarterbacks. What is interesting is seeing the...
