Harlan Miller back with Arizona Cardinals, Lou Young III waived

The Arizona Cardinals continue to churn the bottom of theri roster. Who says you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression? Or, in the case of Harlan Miller, a third chance.

Josh Rosen’s first NFL work was rough according to Pro Football Focus

Josh Rosen’s first NFL work was rough according to Pro Football Focus

The Cardinals rookie quarterback was the worst of the five rookies according to PFF grades. After the dust settled at University of Phoenix Stadium in the Arizona Cardinals 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers, the question on everyone’s mind was... Can we get Josh Rosen some help, please? The Cardinals offensive line was bad, the wide receivers lacked any sort of play making ability and the entire offense looked like a bad team full of rookies. That’s why when the grades on the game came out from Pro Football Focus, it was a little surprising to see Rosen’s so low. The idea behind...

Mason Cole is the under-the-radar rookie for the Arizona Cardinals

Mason Cole is the under-the-radar rookie for the Arizona Cardinals

Pro Football Focus thinks the Cardinals new starting center, could be an under-the-radar type this season. When A.Q. Shipley went down in the Arizona Cardinals Red and White Practice ten days ago, there was never a question on who was replacing him. The Cardinals and Steve Wilks went immediately to third round pick Mason Cole as the new starter for the Arizona Cardinals in the middle of the offensive line. Now, the question is can he hold up to the rigors of an NFL season? Pro Football Focus, in their continued look through each team at camp, has picked their under-the-radar rookies for...

Arise Fair Rosen

Arise Fair Rosen

Everyone knows what Josh Rosen’s problem is. It’s himself. Rosen himself has admitted that no one is harder on him than himself. Apparently this is what SI writer Robert Klemko witnessed a couple of says ago at the Cardinals’ practice. Starting QB Sam Bradford had been given a veteran’s day off and Rosen was champing at the bit to take his reps with the 1st team and to find the quickest antidote for what was an inauspicious debut. Of the 5 QBs taken in the first round, Rosen’s performance was the most lackluster. He didn’t get a lot of help from his teammates, but he didn’t...

SI worries about Josh Rosen’s mood

SI worries about Josh Rosen’s mood

SI was at camp for a day and made some sweeping conclusions. When the Josh Rosen talk was happening leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft, the conversation was literally never about his work on the field. Instead, it was always about the person of Rosen, ignoring the glowing reviews of the work on the field. In May, Albert Breer wrote quite the article wondering if Rosen was meant for the NFL: But the point was made, and it’s been made over and over again by coaches and scouts in the lead-up to last Thursday: He’s spoiled, and entitled, and not made for pro football life. On Monday,...

Josh Rosen to get time with starters against New Orleans Saints

Josh Rosen to get time with starters against New Orleans Saints

The Arizona Cardinals rookie will get to work with the startes on Friday. When Josh Rosen took the field for his first live work in the NFL, the results were less than optimal. Much of that was outside of Rosen’s control, but that should hopefully change in the Arizona Cardinals second preseason tilt. According to Head Coach Steve Wilks, the Arizona Cardinals rookie quarterback Josh Rosen will be getting some work with the first team offense in week two of the Cardinals preseason. Wilks said Sam Bradford will play more this week in New Orleans. Also said Josh Rosen will play with the...

Arizona Cardinals second depth chart has no noticeable change

The Arizona Cardinals released their second depth chart of 2018. The Arizona Cardinals have released their second depth chart of the 2018 season and only one big change. There were no changes from the first depth chart, outside of the obvious of Jeremy Cash and Gerald Hodges. Here is the second Cardinals depth chart thus far. Are you surprised seeing J.J. Nelson still as high up on the wide receiver depth chart? What about the tight end room? Was Holmes performance enough to keep him at tight and two? The offensive line was bad beyond the starters, but nothing changed, do you...

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

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...

How did the first team offensive line perform?

How did the first team offensive line perform?

Kyle Posey highlights David Johnson’s two big runs One of the things I was keeping an eye on in Saturday’s preseason opener was just how the offensive line looked against the Chargers defensive front. Luckily, Joey Bosa did not dress. Still, with so many moving parts up front, how the unit worked together is what I was most interested in. Last year the line was middle of the pack in creating yards against the run, and 26th in the league in adjusted sack rate. If Sam Bradford is going to play an entire season, the latter has to change. Seth wrote about how the offensive line as a unit...

Updated 53 (Week 2 Pre-Season)

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. RB (3): 31-David Johnson; 29-Chase Edmonds; 22-T.J. Logan Same—-Would like to see Elijhaa Penny be used as a power RB option between the tackles. FB (2): 48-Derrick Coleman; 35-Elijhaa Penny Same—-Would like to see Coleman get some carries. WR (5): 11-Larry Fitzgerald; 13-Christian Kirk; 18-Brice Butler; 10-Chad Williams; 16-Trent Sherfield;...
