    Does it matter though? I mean there are guys that play many downs in the NFL but never stand out. Just the fact that he was able to play so many snaps is commendable but doesn't change a thing.

    I like him. I don't think it's anybody's fault that his injuries and contract ended up the way they are now. He is not worth his contract. I don't blame him for not wanting a pay cut anymore than the Cards cutting him if he doesn't agree to it.

    He played over a thousand snaps this past year. How many do you remember? Three?

    Mathieu had the full backing of the entire org. at the time of signing. Keim merely got the deal done with what was available to extend a core player before he went into Dansby mode.

    A lot of pure hatred for a guy who is a leader on the team and isn't out there slumming it - he's just not the same guy. Can he be? I don't know. But he's probably not worth what he's making now.

    Does he have any trade value with his salary?

    Love the player but you can't pay him that much unless you are 100% he returns to form next year.

    HB was my new favorite player but sadly, injuries have taken the burst out of his game.

    Now he’s just small and slow... while making major money. Those three things don’t jive together.

    We're paying Honey Badger money but getting Tyrann production. A shame he's not producing like he used to, but not particularly surprising.

    Time to move on.

    Posts like this shock me, I feel like I'm watching a different league. Is PP a great tackler? No. But a ton of the best corners have been bad tacklers. Does PP absolutely wipe out the other team's best WO every week to an extent that exceeds basically everyone else at the position? Yes. PP is a monster, the Cardinals would be idiots to let him walk unless their goal is to suck.
