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. Running back was a serious position of need as last season the Cardinals got very little production from their backs when Andre Ellington went down with an injury. When Ellington went down in Week 12, the Cardinals had to lean on Stepfan Taylor...

Breaking Down Why The Cardinals Laid an Egg Against Seattle

Last night’s effort against Seattle was enough to make you either cry or puke and it’s hard to determine which one was more appropriate. 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 question with the shorter answer might be where did it go right...

Ducks' D unconcerned with Stanford's new look

Even though Stanford is sporting a new look on offense, that won't change Oregon's overall defensive strategy on Saturday afternoon when the two teams meet. 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. ''We've got to get stops. We can't...

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...

Jonathan Dwyer listed as No. 2 on Cardinals depth chart at RB

Getty Images The Arizona Cardinals have Jonathan Dwyer listed as their No. 2 running back to start the season. Dwyer, 25, was fully expected to claim the job as Andre Ellington’s backup with Stepfan Taylor showing little reason to be ahead of him on the depth chart.

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. This off-season, Mendenhall retired from the game, leaving the Cardinals with what seemed as though an obvious hole that would need to be filled, until of course...

Ryan Williams was a healthy scratch for all 16 games this season while Stepfan Taylor and Alfonso Smith saw limited work.
