    Oh baby! Dude was a playmaker at Wake. Very similar to Rondale in that he was undersized but made a ton of plays. Red shirt soph which turned out to be a big mistake coming out as he went as an UDFA. Dortch was expected to test very week but didn't and then hasn't really been able to stick...

    Health and then height were always the issues. Height was more shocking than anything because it was an outlier. Health, we will see.

    Man I get excited when I think about Freshman year Rondale Moore for the Cardinals. He was amazing as a freshman. I must be feeling the camp glow.

    Former Cardinals on Keim

    Yeah. There is a way to deliver bad news to grown professionals that treats them like a professional. They are generally not happy about it, but they respect that you were honest and let them know where they stand.

    Because Steve Keim is the pillar of virtue and ethical behavior. Ok. Keep drinking the kool-aid.

    Former Cardinals on Keim

    Did you not read the article? This is why players are bitter and say they don't trust Keim and they aren't wrong. Keim was correct in letting Peterson walk, but this isn't how you treat players. “This is why I’m so kinda upset: Going through the whole (free agency process) … we have our...

    Clown move by Keim but that is his MO. I don't know how folks can read this and not understand why Peterson has an issue and it isn't because he is no longer in AZ.

    If Vance is the DC long term, I am ok with drafting CBs and spending on pass rushers.

    Chandler Jones requested a trade

    They are similar by not utilizing the asset you are acquiring to it's greatest potential. Cardinals run very little match-man (or shadow) or iso-man+zone combos. They will run man and they will run zone but you can easily avoid a CB if you want. Also, your ability to excel as a zone CB is...

    Former Cardinals on Keim

    No, but they tell the player's agent "here is what we are willing to pay" which is normally below the amount they want. If you tell Reddick we want you back but can only pay 8 mil thinking he will get 11, and then tell him you can't swing it when the market is 6...that is just being a liar...

    Chandler Jones requested a trade

    The issue with Howard is the cost to acquire him. You have to give up players or picks and give him a new large new contract. That is a lot to give up for a guy when the scheme he is playing in won't maximize his talents. Like trading for and paying top dollar for a RB to then put in a RBBC...

    Chandler Jones requested a trade

    It isn't about can Vance make adjustments or can Howard do it, it is that Vance will not completely change his scheme to accommodate Howard and if Howard is not playing predominately a man-scheme, he isn't really worth the 1st rounder and 18 mil per year that he wants.

    Former Cardinals on Keim

    And the point being is that all Keim had to do was tell Peterson that a return wasn't an option or that his budget is 4 mil and he assumes Patrick wants more. Lots of ways to let Peterson go without claiming he wanted him back when he clearly didn't and shouldn't have. Arians is great at it and...

    Former Cardinals on Keim

    IMO, the problem is the lack of honesty. The "we want to bring you back" statement when the truth is you feel like it is time for them to go. Players understand this is a business. They do get it, I promise you. They recognize the teams may not view them the same way they view themselves. Where...

    Chandler Jones requested a trade

    I think the point is that the value of Howard is diminished if you are not going to have him do things that would make you give up significant assets to trade for and then pay him top dollar.

    I 100% get the problems with players and the organization now. This clicks and makes sense. Crazy that he would hire Arians who is the exact opposite.

    I will say that Phillips and Fotu getting one-on-one opportunities is going to be a potential nightmare for opposing teams to handle. Golden gets the same benefit. Teams are going to have to pick and choose how they go about blocking this group and that should result in opportunities for these...

    Chandler Jones requested a trade

    A couple notes. 1 - Not shocking and a negotiating tactic. 2 - Cardinals hold the leverage as they franchise him if needed next year. 3 - If the right player is available, they will not be afraid to move him. 4 - 31 is not the drop off age it used to be. Calais left at age 30 and had over 30...

    Yay finally a run game coordinator

    Three things you want out of your QB coach. To be able to instill knowledge and provide feedback to your QB. To be a buffer between your HC and your QB. To build trust and have a rapport with your QB. I have no idea if these are the reasons Turner is in his role, but the Turner family has a...

    Cards release C Lamont Gaillard

    My overall point is that guys who stick in the league find a way to contribute in some way by the end of year 2. I would put Byron Murphy is that group. Guys who can't get on the field by the end of year 2, tend to wash out. Brandon Williams would be in that group. Joshua Jones is heading into...

    Hopkins Threatens to Retire Over NFL Vaccine Policy

    I find it funny that those who are frustrated by individuals who choose not to get vaccinated ask the people "why?" and then don't listen and respect the reason they are given because they don't agree with it. Just because I like to debate I will add that the vaccine is and has been readily...

    Senio Kelemete is probably one guy who was drafted, couldn't get on the field, and then developed into a quality reserve offensive lineman.

    Cards release C Lamont Gaillard

    Byron Murphy played 1105 snaps his rookie year. He wasn't good but he wasn't missing playing time behind replaceable vets either. Budda played 48% of snaps on defense and 65% of ST snaps. Even Reddick got 40% of defensive snaps in 2017. Golden played 49% of defensive snaps. And that is kinda...
