Arians: Stepfan Taylor a 'steady guy you can count on every day'

Stepfan Taylor might not be the No. 1 option, but he's a guy the coaching staff and his teammates have come to trust. When Andre Ellington went down towards the end of last season, Taylor still didn't see a huge workload with Kerwynn Williams also sharing the rock. But he filled in with 125 yards over the last four games, including a 61-yard outing at St. Louis. His other big...

David Johnson is exactly the running back that the Arizona Cardinals needed

On day two of the 2015 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals drafted University of Northern Iowa running back David Johnson in the third round.

Arizona fell apart in the second half as Seattle won 35-6 to reclaim first place in the division and control its own destiny in the playoff picture. So where did it go wrong?

The Ducks' defense is aiming to be on the field as little as possible, shutting down whatever style of offense Stanford presents and allowing their own high-flying offense to put up points.

Arizona Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor Records First Career Rushing and Passing Touchdowns in Win Over Raiders

One thing guys have to learn when they go from the college ranks to the NFL is that you have to be patient. Yeah, you might have been a beast in college, but that doesn't mean crap in the NFL. Everyone in the National Football League was a beast in college. So you can do one of two things: (1) turn in to a whiny little baby when you don't get your touches or (2) get to work, pay...

Projecting How the Cardinals Backfield Will Shake Out

The Cardinals have an intriguing backfield for the 2014 season.  Last year they used Mendenhall as the primary back, and sprinkled in Andre Ellington as a change of pace, receiving back, who played mostly out of shotgun.
