Probably wanted AJ & we know he loved Rondale.

I’m betting he had more
input on improving the offensive line and getting Hudson in than an older WR who hasn’t been great since Kyler was in high school.

Oh, Rondale Moore is a freaking stud and a half and 'if' he can stay healthy will make it easy for the Cards to swallow their pride drafting Isabella & releasing him (no, nobody is going to trade for Andy as of yet), and the fans too :)

Listen, I understand the fluff pieces inflating Rondale Moore in the first few practices of the preseason before we even get a preseason game snap. I get it. But he's a "stud and a half?" Puh-lease. Let's see him, ya know, take a snap in the preseason, then take a snap in the regular season, THEN actually DO SOMETHING before we crown him.

Don't want Denny Green getting jealous, do we? :)

The reason I'm guessing that AI makes the Final 53 is his speed and not where he was drafted. In baseball, teams always stayed with a guy who throws in the high nineties, even if he had control problems. They just hoped that eventually his control would improve. We're hoping that eventually AI will do a better job catching the football. JMO.

Sucks that he is missing this time. Would have liked to see how much Shawn Jefferson has got him to improve.

I feel like Andy is a confidence player. I sometimes wonder what happens if Kyler hits him vs. the Lions late to win. Seemed like it was all coming together that day and then things went back to usual.

False positives the staple of Cardinals preseason PR hype machine with 98.7. It cannot be stopped until regular season starts. Remember KeeSean Johsnon?

training camp and preseason are the proper places for unconstrained optimism

regular season reality will come soon enough.

Sports is entertainment -- lets enjoy the greatest time of the football year where if a player / unit look good it means its good, and if it doesnt, it means things are vanilla and the other team blitzed too much

When comparing a 6th rounder to a 2nd rounder, you just gotta do it.
