Arizona Cardinals: Doing Epic Sh*t With Basic People

The Arizona Cardinals are 9-1 and off to the best start since 1948, back when the franchise played in Chicago.  The word epic is tossed around pretty liberally these days, but given this franchise's history...I'd say this is pretty safely an EPIC start for Bruce Arians's team. Epic not just in paper record alone, but epic also in the path that they've traveled to get here.  Injuries...

Why Dave Zastudil wasn’t worth it
