It’s Byron Murphy’s time

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The former 33rd overall pick is poised for a breakout season.

For the Arizona Cardinals to break their five year post season drought in 2021, several players will need to take that ever important “next step”.

Some immediate names that come to mind are the likes of LB Isaiah Simmons, RB Chase Edmonds, and WR Christian Kirk (among others).

Then there’s CB Byron Murphy, the former 33rd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Murphy has been solid, not...

Happy Father’s Day from Revenge of the Birds

Happy Father’s Day one and all.

Hope you have a wonderful Father’s Day.

Check out what makes this day so special for me, thanks to my dad.

I was fortunate enough, maybe unfortunate, to have season tickets as a kid with my dad from 1995 to 1998 for the Arizona Cardinals.

Every Sunday dad and I would head down to Sun Devil Stadium for a game, we’d grab a quick bite to eat on our way in and then battle the heat in the south end zone.

It was crazy every week. Despite the terrible product...

Happy Sunday one and all.

It has been quiet through much of the summer, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have plenty to discuss on the Original Draft Breakdown Podcast.

No, not with the obscene number of changes happening every week in college football.

Are the Cardinals set at cornerback or will another player be added to the position group?

We are already in the middle of June and cornerback remains the most concerning position on the Arizona Cardinals’ roster.

They added Malcolm Butler and Darqueze Dennard in free agency. They drafted Marco Wilson and Tay Gowan. They cut and re-signed Robert Alford.

Despite all of these additions and Byron Murphy elevated to being the No. 1 cornerback on the team, the...

...is to channel his inner McVay.

Namely, by taking McVay’s 10-12 most successful bread and butter plays and incorporate them into the Cardinals’ offense.

McVay’s offense is predicated around his off-tackle running game —- which can be run to either the strong or weak side of the formations —- while often run off of tricky jet sweep motions.

The Arizona Cardinals have invested heavily in the wide receiver position over the last five seasons, and this may be the season they see it play out the way they have expected.

DeAndre Hopkins is one of the best players in the league, but now they have A.J. Green, Rondale Moore, Christian Kirk and maybe even Andy Isabella.

Arizona Cardinals primed for big rushing season, but with workload split

USA TODAY Sports

If the Arizona Cardinals are going to take the next step part of what they’ll need is a strong running game.

When you look at last season, it was Kyler Murray really carrying the load.

In 2021 you’d like to see that change to the running backs leading the way with Murray pitching in a strong helpful hand.

Fantasy Pros projected the Cardinals top three rushers and they put together quite the season:

James Conner: 171 carries for 805 yards and 7 touchdowns

Arizona Cardinals defensive line is nothing but questions after J.J. Watt

Rob Schumacher/The Republic via Imagn Content Services, LLC

The Arizona Cardinals have spent massively in free agency the last couple of seasons along the defensive line.

They signed Jordan Phillips in the 2020 offseason then of course shocked everyone by signing J.J. Watt this offseason.

Now the question becomes, who steps up?

Watt is the obvious starter barring injury he’s going to be the man along the defensive line, but who slots in with him?

With the Arizona Cardinals off for the next five weeks until training camp starts up, there is not a whole lot of news.

Sure, we are waiting to hear about the future of soon to be Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald, but overall it is quiet.

Which is nice for a change because there is something to actually be excited about right now... the Phoenix Suns.

That is right, the Phoenix Suns are back in the Western Conference Finals.
