Is Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer the least-athletic QB in the NFL?

Quarterback remains the most-important position in all of sports, but that doesn’t mean it’s not evolving. In fact, the past 10 years have seen a drastic shift in the way success is defined behind center. No longer are quarterbacks asked to simply stand in the pocket and deliver passes to receiver. More and more, they are becoming dynamic, two-way threats, players who can torment...

Arizona Cardinals fare well in logo power rankings

It’s the symbol that represents a city and a franchise; it’s the mark that fans wear with pride, showing their allegiance to their favorite team. That’s what makes a logo important.
