Arizona Cardinals not the worst in Week 7 NFL Power Rankings, thanks to one truly incompetent team

The Week 7 NFL Power Rankings have the Cardinals just outside of the worst in the NFL.

Coming off a 27-17 loss and being 1-5 on the season usually means that you are the worst team in the NFL.

Except, in the 2018 NFL season, the have nots are quite extensive.

When you look at the one win NFL teams, and where they fall in the newest 2018 NFL Power Rankings, it tells you a little bit of a story, let’s take a look.

28. San Francisco 49ers

Cardinals not shopping Haason Reddick?

Contrary to some reports, the Cardinals are not shopping linebacker Haason Reddick, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (video link). The club is shopping linebacker/safety Deone Bucannon, however, which is consistent with what we’ve heard in recent weeks. The Cardinals drafted the former Temple standout with the 13th overall pick in the 2017 draft in the hopes that his explosive athleticism would serve him well as a pass rusher and as a run stopper. So far, his development has not gone...

Cardinals too complicated in the two biggest facets of the game

Lack of adjustments are costing the Cards

Bad teams are bad for a reason. Poor coaching. The Jimmy’s and the Joe’s. Sometimes much deeper reasons than that. The Cardinals suffer from both to an extent. What it’s very clear is that they refuse to make in-game adjustments to give themselves the best chance to win. There are some things that just happen. David Johnson fumbled and that lead to points for the Vikings. That’s football. Those are the plays that you overcome. Other...

The Arizona Cardinals still are struggling, but Chandler Jones sure isn't.

As a tough season continues forward for the Arizona Cardinals one thing is for certain, Chandler Jones is comfortable in the new defense.

A week after a dominating the San Francisco 49ers in what was undoubtedly his best game of 2018, Jones backed it up with an even better performance.

Is it the last call for Mike McCoy and the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday Night Football?

A year after being fired by the Denver Broncos, Mike McCoy could be coaching for his job against his former team.

330 days, that is all it has been since Mike McCoy was let go after the Denver Broncos lost their sixth consecutive game as the offensive coordinator.

After starting 3-1, the Broncos stumbled to a 3-7 record, averaging 14.2 points per game in the six game losing streakm which allowed new Broncos Head Coach Vance Joseph to pull the trigger on McCoy’s firing.

330 days later, the...

Bidwill and Keim At Odds?

My theory has been that Michael Bidwill wanted Bruce Arians to retire—-and Steve Keim, BA’s “little brother” did not.

Bidwill’s chief concern was BA’s health—-but there also may have been some lingering unease about BA’s hubris and how it affected key decisions about BA’s staff and the players.

Keim stayed as true as he could to BA and found himself in the unenviable position of being the liaison between the owner and the head coach. Thus, ultimately Keim had to defer to...

Shake it up: 3 radical moves the Cardinals should make to improve for 2019

The 2018 season is over. It’s time to start thinking about 2019. What moves can the Cardinals make to improve for next season?

If you squinted hard enough, you could still see a sliver of hope for the Cardinals’ 2018 season right around halftime yesterday. Only down 3 to the Vikings, if we continued to harass Kirk Cousins, forced another turnover or two, and got some big-time play from our young quarterback, we could pull off the shocker. Then, all that would stand between us and a 3-4...

4 warning signs we should have seen about this Arizona Cardinals coaching staff

Looking back at comments and the methodology that led to the current Cardinals, should fans have been concerned from the start? The Arizona Cardinals hired Steve Wilks on January 22nd, 2018. They since hired Mike McCoy to run the offense and be the OC three days later on January 25th along with Defensive coordinator Al Holcomb. Those three are the core of Arizona’s coaching staff structure in terms of playcalling and decision-making, with McCoy and Holcomb calling the plays and Wilks...
