Defensive lineman Darnell Dockett is in a good mood these days, he’s tweeting at beauty queens, and playing the dozens with Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron. However, it wasn’t always like that, in actuality Dockett wanted out of Arizona if former coach Ken Whisenhunt had stayed. Dockett felt he wasn’t being utilized right, but new coach Bruce Arians has the same idea Dockett has, which is going back to his old position. “Arians told me he is going to put me in my regular position that I had been playing over the years, when I was a dominant force in the middle,” Dockett said. “That got me fired up right away because I’ve been just looking for another opportunity to do what I do best, and that’s go out and dominate games,” via Dan Brickley of azcentral.com. “I never wanted to be an Albert Haynesworth.

  • This is why the Cardinals are perennial losers. It's because we draft and select players just like Dockett with ATTITUDES! Don't play the defense I like...trade me! Don't pay me enough $$$.....I am out of here! I know more than the coach. Your an idiot Dockett, the game is about strategy and using your brain at times - the best play at the end of the Jet's game was to let the Jet's score, so we have an opportunity/more time to at least try an tie up the game, but instead you try an do something moronic and try to stop them from scoring. Your the employee you idiot, you do as the boss instructs. Your just lucky that their running back had more brains than you and laid down short of the goal on purpose or you'd have been out to be even a bigger idiot by the national media. We don't need players that put themselves ahead of the TEAM.
  • I feel if Mr dockett wants out they should let him go,he will couse hate and discontent later no matter who the coach is...
