You won’t believe what Bruce Arians said about the Arizona Cardinals and the draft

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians likes to play things close to the chest. For example, when he was asked at the NFL owner’s meetings a couple of weeks ago about the possibility of trading for Adrian Peterson, he laughed it off and refused to go anywhere near the tampering line. As for the team’s needs in the upcoming NFL Draft? Don’t ask Arians, because he’s not...

Should the San Francisco 49ers consider a d-lineman in free agency?

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen.
