Four games into the 2012 season, Arizona was undefeated and Kevin Kolb looked like he might be turning into the quarterback the Cardinals hoped he would be when acquiring him from Philadelphia.
But a loss to St. Louis in week five and an injury to Kolb during a defeat against Buffalo turned the tide on the season and the Cardinals never recovered, losing 11 of 12 and finishing in last place in the NFC West. The collapse cost Rod Graves and Ken Whisenhunt their jobs and ushered in yet another new era in the desert.
There’s plenty of talent on this roster, however, with guys like Patrick Peterson on defense and Larry Fitzgerald on offense, which made the job eventually won by Bruce Arians a coveted one. Arians and his crew are high on this team’s potential and many think the Cardinals are just solid play at quarterback away from being a contender in the NFC. Tyler Nickel, a manager for Revenge of the Birds, shared his thoughts.

Releasing Bradley will now get the Cardinals under the cap since he had a $6 million cap number.
The Arizona Cardinals have cleared salary cap room by releasing linebacker Stewart Bradley and cornerback William Gay.
Bradley was signed to a five-year, $30 million contract in 2011 but never became the starting inside linebacker the Cardinals envisioned. Bradley had 15 tackles in 16 games last season, six of them on special teams.

As a 29-year-old man who makes $16 million a year playing a kids game with a tremendous amount of vacation time, Larry Fitzgerald is a blessed man. And kudos to him for making the most of the fact that he's one of the most fortunate people in the world when it comes to having opportunities to adventure and explore.
The Arizona Cardinals All-Pro wide receiver is quite the...
Has free agent cornerback William Gay re-signed back with the Pittsburgh Steelers?
Gay, who was released by the Arizona Cardinals on Friday, posted on his Twitter account Sunday that he is glad he didn't sell his condo in Pittsburgh. In addition to that, Gay has also changed his Twitter profile to reflect that he now plays for the Steelers.

Gay, who was an unrestricted free agent last offseason, was rumored to have turned...
