Anybody and their grandmother can make a power rankings list for the NFL’s best quarterbacks. It takes a real man or a sportswriter with nothing better to do to rank the less glamorous positions.
In that spirit let’s find out who the top ten safeties are playing in the league right now.
To determine the list I went by Pro Football Focus’ pass coverage ratings. Tashuan Gipson...

The Arizona Cardinals have had to endure a whole lot of ripping and breaking on their way to leading the NFC West, and starting the season 9-1. Eventually there would be a regression or a tipping point as the names continued to pile on their injury report, and that came when quarterback Carson Palmer went down.
How much more can they fight through while still clinging to a division...

What if I told you that a team would lose a 10-year veteran linebacker in free agency, a pro-bowl inside linebacker to a full-year suspension, and a three-time pro-bowl defensive tackle to a preseason ACL tear.
And what if I added that, after eleven weeks, this team would be 29th in opponent passing yards per game and 31st in both rush yards per game and total penalties.
This one had to hurt. Three Arizona Cardinals teammates — Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, and Jerraud Powers — decided to make a wager on last Saturday’s game between LSU and Auburn. Peterson and Mathieu were stars at LSU, while Powers played college ball at Auburn.
Auburn ended up obliterating LSU, 41-7, so Powers won the bet. According to his Instagram, both Mathieu and...

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Tyrann Mathieu has had little means to gauge how close he is to game speed. For the first three-plus weeks of training camp, he rehabbed his surgically repaired knee outside with trainers.

Tyrann Mathieu was the gem of last year’s draft class. Taken in the third round, the former rookie out of LSU spent his first season with the Cardinals making an immediate impact on the backfield. He was constantly making plays all over the field. He lit up opposing offenses, challenged receivers and provided a nice complement for team-mate Patrick Peterson. Mathieu surpassed...

Despite their comeback season, it still wasn’t good enough to make the playoffs. Unfortunately, Arizona is in the same division as […]
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals DB Tyrann Mathieu is coming off of the team’s PUP list on Tuesday.
According to Schefter, there is some optimism that Mathieu will play in the team’s season opener.
Mathieu suffered a tore ACL and LCL last December, so he’s over nine months removed from surgery.
It will be interesting to see how the Cardinals approach...
The Darnell Dockett- Bradley Sowell scrum in practice turned a light bulb on in the head of safety Tyrann Mathieu and it was a little wicked idea he had with Darren Urban of the team’s official website.
I hope that doesn’t mean you’ll start something. RT @Mathieu_Era: @Cardschatter I would have paid to see @LarryFitzgerald fight !!
