A vastly improved contingent of assistant coaches will go a long way in helping the Arizona Cardinals become respected again As the Arizona Cardinals torturous 2018 campaign crept along, something about the team became more and more apparent.

Is former Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall destined for the Arizona Cardinals?

When free agency hits the names that will be associated with the Arizona Cardinals will undoubtedly be offensive line based.

However, one name to keep an eye on on the other side of the ball is Brandon Marshall, formerly of the Denver Broncos.

Marshall will become a free agent once the Broncos decide to opt out of his contract.

That means, one of the bigger needs for the Arizona Cardinals over the last four seasons, despite three top 50 picks used on the linebacker position, could be...

Cardinals projected to land free agent center Matt Paradis by PFF

As we get closer to the to getting into NFL free agency, there is one certainty when it comes to the Arizona Cardinals.

The Cardinals need to improve their offensive line.

While fixing the line has been Steve Keim's goal since he took over as general manager all the way back in 2013, he's definitely not been able to find the right combination of players to do so.

That's why, as we head into the 2019 NFL offseason, the speculation of what the Arizona Cardinals will do will heavily feature...

Welcome to week two of the 2019 AAF season.

It is Saturday in February, where there is little sports going on.

Tony Pauline has Arizona Cardinals taking Quinnen Williams with the first pick... And cutting Robert Nkemdiche

Another mock draft, but the news with it is a little more interesting.

As the cycle of 2019 NFL Mock Drafts ramps up, one thing we have been debating is the merits of who should be taken first.

While some even have discussed Kyler Murray, this site has been pretty strong in their belief it will come down to one of three players: Nick Bosa, Quinnen Williams or Josh Allen.

In fact, that is how I would rank the three as they come out of college now heading into the 2019 NFL Combine.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury on QB talk: ‘It comes with the territory’

There’s been quite a bit of talk on what exactly new head coach Kliff Kingsbury and the Arizona Cardinals are going to do with the No. 1 pick. Do they pull the trigger on a Kyler Murray, or even Dwayne Haskins, or stick with the signal caller already on the roster in Josh Rosen? For those thinking there may be some clarity as to whom the Arizona Cardinals are going to take with the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, think again. “I think it comes with the territory,” Kingsbury...

Chain Moving Creativity

At Houston, Texas A&M and Texas Tech, Kliff Kingsbury was a chain moving wizard.

When one looks at the key offensive production stats—-QB completion %, QB combined TDs (passing and rushing), points per game, first downs, 3rd down conversion % and QBR—-the consistent production he got from Case Keenum (Houston 2011), Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M 2012) and Patrick Mahomes (Texas Tech 2015 & 2016) is astonishing.

SB Nation’s new 2019 NFL Mock Draft has the Arizona Cardinals with Nick Bosa at the top

The Cardinals keep the pick and take Nick Bosa with the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Thursday Night Open Thread with Revenge of the Birds

Thursday Night on Valentine's Day.

Hope you all remembered.

You know what few seem to remember... The Arizona Cardinals trading up to draft Josh Rosen last year... Also, few seem to remember that even with Christian Kirk coming back healthy and Larry Fitzgerald back, this is still one of the worst receiving corps in the NFL.

It's weird, the talent needs to be added at a number of positions both offensively and defensive and fans want to stuff those positions with rookies.

Despite backing Josh Rosen, trade rumors now begin about the Arizona Cardinals young quarterback

Nothing is worse than unsubstantiated rumors emerging within 48 hours of the Arizona Cardinals coming out and supporting Josh Rosen moving forward.

Yet, it wouldn’t be the northeast media if they listened to what a lowly west coast team was saying.

No, instead they doubled down and started making faux trade proposals that the Arizona Cardinals would have to begin to sort through.

This is where the biggest disconnect lies, at least for me, with the trade Josh Rosen ideal.

Cardinals’ 2019 WR Discussion

You have probably heard of the term “precision routes” before, correct? But, we Cardinals’ fans have never witnessed the kind of precision routes that Kliff Kingsbury teaches his WRs. Every step is measured, accounted for and practiced to perfection. It’s like teaching dance steps—-it’s an excercise in highly coordinated rhythm and timing—-the kind you get from a metronome.

Not only does Kingsbury demand precision routes, he expects his WRs to be in relentless football shape,...

Arizona Cardinals are favorites to land Antonio Brown per odds makers

The Arizona Cardinals and Antonio Brown? Las Vegas seems to think so.

The Arizona Cardinals were the worst team in the NFL in 2018.

That alone seems like that makes them an illogical destination for a disgruntled superstar.

Now, they have a young quarterback, a first time head coach and a team looking like they’re on the front end of a rebuild.

Which makes the prospects of a player like Antonio Brown seem not to make a lick of sense.

However, if you ask the odds makers, they think that...
