1 – Isaiah Simmons obviously played great in the preseason, but now he was also a playmaker in a regular season game. I think he can be even better, but this is much closer to what I expected when the Cards drafted him.

2 – Addiction is a dangerous thing, but it seemed like they got the penalties out of their system in the first quarter.

3 - The guys in white jerseys are some of the best athletes in the world. No, seriously.

4 – Marco Wilson more than held his own (while playing 95% of all defensive snaps).

5 – There must be some sort of team executive that can order someone to stop the cheerleaders from cheering in the fourth quarter. At best it seems strange. At worst it seems like provoking their own fans.

6 – I am very excited about the duo of Chase Edmonds and James Connor.

7 – When was the Cards last in a position to play their backups in the fourth quarter? (I actually think I can answer that myself - @ Cleveland, 2019? – but you get the point.)

8 – Give Vance Joseph credit. Come on, ASFN, give Vance Joseph credit.

9 – Chandler Jones’ sack dance from the previous seasons was gone.

10 – Kyler Murray had the third longest time to throw out of any quarterback yesterday. #KudosOLine



I usually have 15 thoughts in this column, but it simply takes too much time to write them, so to make it work, I will try to keep going with only 10 thoughts.

This is the first game that I can remember where there was pretty much nothing negative to talk about.
Nit picking missed fg, penalties and burnt timeouts didn’t cost us a game. Inspire of those issues we dominated every phase of the game.

Now, let’s see how we adjust to how our opponents adjust after they view our tape. We had 4 months to prepare for this game. How do we prepare week to week.

Right now that’s not important . Enjoy this victory and then get ready for Viqueens.

that Kyler play is so ridiculous. this team FINALLY has the type of athletic FREAKSHOW that can single-handedly drive defenses crazy. And he's only going to get better.

I'd say the entire city of Phoenix has never had a player with this much potential. Amare with the Suns pre-microfracture was close, but having that possible level player at QB? It could change the entire narrative of the franchise for the next decade.

Always an issue with this team and must be addressed

Better teams will make us pay for these

This is what I saw when I switched to Team Murray before the Cardinals drafted him.

Yes he's a tremendous athlete, but I was and am, more impressed with his arm.

Plus the kid really cares about winning. Sure he looks all surly and pouts when things aren't going well, but its because he really cares. Remember Derek Anderson? Laughing on the sideline? We'd never see Murray do that.

Listening to Bickely, you'd think Murray was a total headache, but watching him during the last Flight Plan, you see that the anti-Murray narrative is manufactured.

Murray is already a top 3 Cardinals QB, and I think we can say he's probably going to be better than Palmer ever was in a Cardinals uniform. I'd say he is very likely to be the best ever soon from what we've seen.

Murray is a double outlier, too short and only one year of college experience. I think height is overblown, but the lack of experience has limited him somewhat. He is now probably, experience wise, where he'd be as a 2nd year starter in the NFL. I expect to see him get better this year.

I’m pro-Murray but I can’t see him standing tall in a collapsing pocket and delivering a strike downfield ala Brady. He’s not meant for that.

Wasnt for the JJ Watt signing, but I may have to eat a plate of delicious crow by midseason.

He opens up everything for everyone else on the defensive front and ensures there are less double teams on Jones.

Really good sign of things to come.
