Football players are supposed to be some of the toughest guys on the planet. Rashad Johnson took that perception to a whole new level on Sunday. The Arizona Cardinals safety lost part of his middle finger during Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Saints, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.

Challenge and adversity is nothing new to the Arizona Cardinals. Heck, they had John Skelton has a QB for awhile and I don't think they've ever had a running game! When it comes to adversity you can do one of two things--curl up in a ball and cry as you dream about being in Happy Gilmore's happy place (minus Shooter McGavin) or make the most of it.
Heck, you can even...
