Lining up as OTA’s begin

Cardinals begin phase 2 of OTA’s on Tuesday(photo courtesy of azcardinals.com) As the Arizona Cardinals begin phase 2 of organized team activities today,  there will be things to look out for. A starting lineup has been set to start things off, but it is certainly a long ways away from being official. A lot could change between now and the start of the regular season. For instance...

Final Pre-Draft Cardinals 7 Round Mock Draft-Offensive Edition

(photo courtesy of draftbreakdown.com) After taking a look at defensive positions and players in my last Cardinals 7-Round mock draft (which can be found HERE) what are the offensive positions of need for the Cardinals?  Who are some names that Cards fans could hear called on draft day?

Five Cardinals who will lose their starting jobs.

AP Photo/G. Newman Lowrance With every offseason comes change. Players come and players go. Every team evaluates the talent they have in an attempt to make them the talent they had, in exchange for roster spots to be filled by rookies, free agents, or to give players you already have the opportunity to help the team. Some players are cut, some are demoted. All in the name of improving...

Cardinals Roster Review: Offensive Line

The Arizona Cardinals offensive line needs some help. The line performed better in 2013 than 2012  but still left plenty to be desired. Let’s take a look at the offensive linemen and see where the money falls on this unit. Bobby Massie $680,845 Nate Potter $584,856 Bradley Sowell $570,000 Daryn Colledge $7.275 million Lyle Sendlein $4.125 million Jonathan Cooper $3.306 million...

Arizona Cardinals: 2013 Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#23)

Last week: 23 (-4) Record: 3-4 I feel like I never have anything to say about the Cardinals. They’re not terrible, but they’re not great. They have a solid defense held back by an erratic quarterback behind a terrible offensive line and an inability to establish the running game. They will definitely win at least 6 games and surpass their pre-season 5.5 win total over/under....

Should the Cut Block Be Outlawed?

If I didn't know any better, I'd assume those who make the rules for the National Football League were bipolar. Fortunately, I do know better. Injuries will continue to happen in the NFL, no matter how much “player safety” rhetoric Roger Goodell and friends will undoubtedly continue to throw at us. Then you read a story like this one and start to wonder: with the...

Opposing players are getting fed up with Suh

While it was wrong for Cardinals guard Paul Fanaika to dive awkwardly (twice) at the knees of Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh we may be seeing more of it. In response to our item from last night with video proof of Suh driving a fist or elbow into the helmet of Cardinals tackle Eric Winston we’ve heard from at least one player who says that there’s a growing sense in NFL...

Ndamukong Suh’s latest cheap shot versus the Arizona Cardinals (VIDEO)

via YouTube Ndamukong Suh continued his rather impressive unimpressive list of run-ins with the authorities in Week One when he hit Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman John Sullivan with a low block from behind. He said he wouldn’t alter his (overly) aggressive play.  In Week Two, he proved to be a man of his word. Watch this play that occurred with just under 9:30 in the third...

Arizona Cardinals: 2013 Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#23)

Last week: 23 The Cardinals showed last week, and week 1 for that matter, that they’re going to be a competitive team in a very tough NFC. Their defense hasn’t been nearly as good as it was last year, thanks to losses in the secondary and the suspension of Daryl Washington, but Washington will be back in 2 weeks. Offensively, they still aren’t pass blocking well, but Carson...

Ndamukong Suh says he’s a bee that won’t be deterred from honey hole by gnats?

Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh delivered an absolutely bizarre quote on Wednesday about what he perceived as low blocks directed at his knees by Arizona Cardinals guard Paul Fanaika during last Sunday’s loss down in the desert. Somehow, Suh, who it should be noted is in a way complaining about cheap shots just one […]The post Ndamukong Suh says he’s a bee that...

Arizona Cardinals: 2013 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#23)

I predicted the Rams would beat the Cardinals by a field goal and that’s exactly what happened. Those two teams might be the most evenly matched in the NFL and I’m confident if they were to play again, this time in Arizona, Arizona would win by a field goal. I expect both teams to finish with the same record. The Cardinals’ passing offense looks infinitely improved over last...

Cardinals season preview: Offensive line

Poor quarterback play was the Cardinals defining characteristic the past three seasons, but poor offensive line play wasnt far from grabbing the mantle. To address those problems, the Cardinals selected left guard Jonathan Cooper with the seventh pick in the draft (the first time theyd selected a lineman higher than the fourth round since Levi Brown in 2007). Unfortunately, the best...
