Yesterday, in our discussion of the 2023 QB draft class, UACardinalsFan reminded us of Brett Kollmann’s excellent video of “Why Only 30% of 1st Round QBs Succeed.”

After reflecting on why a number of his pre-draft evaluations turned out to be inaccurate, Brett came to a realization that he had to move away from the three traditional pillars he had...

Elite 2023 Draft Class at QB

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

I kid you not —- as many as 10 QBs could be taken in the 1st round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

In his recent mock of the 2023 top ten picks, ESPN’s Todd McShay has 5 QBs going in the top 10.

Are you kidding us, Todd?

In my opinion, there actually could be 6 QBs taken in the top ten.

The timing of these young dynamos entering the NFL could not be more auspicious now that Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Matt Ryan, Derek Carr, Kirk Cousins,...

NFC Notes: 49ers, Cardinals, Kyler Murray, Seahawks

49ers Nick Wagoner of ESPN thinks 49ers WR Jauan Jennings could have an increased role next season after becoming one of the team’s “most reliable” third-down and red-zone targets last year.  Doug Kyed of ProFootballFocus writes that it makes “too much sense” for the 49ers to sign free-agent C J.C.

“Be Curious, Not Judgmental”

Photo by Three Lions/Getty Images

Iconic American poet Walt Whitman wrote a litany of poetic muses. One that has always stood out for me is his wonderfully didactic adage:

“Be curious, not judgmental.”

Of course, Walt Whitman had a number of salient reasons why he would wish people would treat him and others with curiosity, rather than condemnation.

To name just a few:

He was the first poet to champion the use of free verse (which so many of the literary critics felt was a form of heresy...

National Perception of Cardinals’ Roster

Michael Chow-Arizona Republic / USA TODAY NETWORK

We have discussed the Cardinals’ approach to this off-season sufficiently enough. Some like the approach. Some are ambivalent. Some don’t like it.

I have argued that the manner in which Michael Bidwill, Steve Keim, Kyler Murray and Erik Burkhardt have handled the off-season has been a PR roller coaster.

A year ago the buzz surrounding the Cardinals was unusually high. This year, the buzz surrounding the Cardinals has diminished like the...

2023 NFL Draft: Veteran quarterbacks look to hold off young studs heading into new college football season

Joseph Cress/Iowa City Press-Citizen / USA TODAY NETWORK

There are some big quarterback competitions heading into the 2022 college football season.

Some of these will have repercussions for the 2023 NFL Draft.

That is why the first thing we talk about are the upcoming quarterback competitions that could have an immediate impact on the 2023 NFL Draft class.

Justin and I return from a short break to discuss the QB competitions looming at three major college football programs.

“Selflessness is the Best Thing You Can Do for Yourself”

“Selflessness is the best thing you can do for yourself” is a quote from David McCullough’s 2012 Wellesley High School graduation speech titled “You Are Not Special” —- a controversial speech that immediately went viral —- not just throughout America, but, all around the world.

If you have the time and the interest, here is McCullough’s iconic speech:

A few months after David McCullough’s speech, I invited him to speak to the students and faculty at Foxborough High School....

Critique of a Simmons Critique

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Jackson Krueger Sports recently posted a video on YouTube titled “it Might be Time to Give up on Isaiah Simmons for the Arizona Cardinals (as a LB)”.

We at ROTB have been debating whether Isaiah Simmons is better suited to play OLB or S than at ILB. But, what I think we can all agree on is that Simmons’ versatility and superior athleticism are what make him special.

Therefore, I would like to comment on the first three plays that Jackson Krueger Sports...

Kliff 2022: Beginning of the end...or End of the Beginning?

The oft-maligned Cardinals’ head coach has been called on the hot seat, but if he overcomes 3 simple things, does his narrative change altogether?

The beginning of the end...or the end of the beginning.

2022 will be an all important year for one Kliff Kingsbury to prove it one way or the other.
