32 worst quarterbacks of the modern era 3 of 8: AFC West.

Jim Racalto So many sports websites thrive off doing Top 10 lists in various categories. You can really make an entertaining list out of anything these days. So I decided to have a little fun, and do a “worst quarterback” list. I kept the time frame of this list relatively modern (1990-present).  With some divisions losing/adding teams, and teams relocating, I am...

Top 5: Denver Broncos Draft busts by Mike Shanahan

The Broncos won two Super Bowl titles with Mike Shanahan as their head coach. Denver also was one of the more consistent teams in the NFL during his tenure. But Shanahan didn’t have a lot of success without John Elway as his quarterback. The coach only won one other playoff game with a different QB and that was Jake Plummer in 2005. Shanahan also had his fair share of swings and...

Cardinals best team pick: Wide receiver

After looking through countless statistics of the wide receivers that have been drafted by the Arizona Cardinals, I just couldn’t pick a clear cut number one receiver from the group. Oh alright, I’ll pick one. Larry Fitzgerald is the best wide receiver ever drafted by the Cardinals. Period. Fitz is one of the best wide receivers to ever play the game, but it was much closer than...

Cardinals Best Team Pick: Running Back

Last week we looked at the quarterback situation for the Cardinals both past and present. This week the focus shifts to the running backs. Figuring out the best quarterback to ever be drafted by the Cardinals was unfortunately not a very difficult exercise. Post merger there was Neil Lomax, Jake Plummer and a bunch of duds. Ryan Bawek had the much more difficult task of determining...

Top 5: Worst playoff losses in Denver Broncos history

Four days later, it’s safe to say the Denver Broncos simply got their butts whooped by the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 48. Seattle was certainly more physical throughout the contest, imposing their will and forcing three turnovers along the way. They beat the Broncos in every phase of the game — including coaching — and took home their first Super Bowl title. But where...

Worst Quarterback Ever Drafted in Cardinals History

Now that the bloody massacre that was Super Bowl XLVIII is beyond us, it’s time to look ahead to the NFL offseason and most importantly the NFL Draft. Like every other offseason since Kurt Warner’s retirement the Cardinals may be in the market for a new gunslinger in this year’s draft. Before we jump full steam ahead into our exhaustive and way too early analysis of who the...

The best quarterback the Cardinals drafted is…

We all know that the quarterback is the most important position in football. Finding the right quarterback is key to the success of a franchise. Finding that guy is easier said than done. So how is the best way to get yourself a franchise quarterback? Is it through free agency, a trade, or the draft? The large majority of franchise quarterbacks are taken by their teams in the draft...

Plummer, McNabb sound off on Mike Shanahan’s treatment of RGIII

Tweet Now that Mike Shanahan has officially named Kirk Cousins the Redskins starter for the final three weeks of the season, a couple of quarterbacks that played under Shanahan are speaking up against him; Jake Plummer and Donovan McNabb (of course). Plummer, who retired at 32 partly because Shanahan benched him for a rookie Jay Cutler in 2006, spoke...

Kelly hopes to be player to take ASU to next level

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Its unfair to expect any college football player to be a transcendental figure for his program. There are too many variables that impact consistent success. You need the right coach and staff. You need good recruiters. You need fertile recruiting grounds. You need plenty of prep talent to translate at the college level. You need an athletic director who is as much...

Shanahan returning to a place he still calls home

''The Mastermind.'' At the beginning in Denver, the words were uttered with reverence. As time passed, they often came out with a bit of a smirk. Mike Shanahan is the only coach to bring a Super Bowl title to the Mile High City, but as the gleam of the two Lombardi Trophies he won faded and playoff trips became more rare, Shanahan went from ''Coach for Life...
