While the season for the Arizona Cardinals is over, there are still plenty of questions to answer.

This week, our buddies at Field Gulls asked their fans which...

The Arizona Cardinals are close to getting at least two compensatory third round picks.

At least according to longtime Arizona Cardinals reporter Mike Jurecki.

According to Jurecki, the Jacksonville Jaguars are close to hiring both Byron Leftwich and longtime Arizona Cardinal Adrian Wilson.

Should the Cardinals 2021-2022 season be considered a success?

You wonder if Kyler Murray and the Cardinals would consider this season a success after how it ended. | Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Only one team can win the Super Bowl, but there are other ways to measure success. With that in mind, should this season be considered a success for the Arizona Cardinals?

It’s been over a week, and I’m still pretty disgusted with the way the 2021-2022 season ended for the Arizona Cardinals. That seems to be a pretty common theme around these...

GM and Head Coach hires slowly coming together in 2022 NFL offseason

Photo by David Eulitt/Getty Images

As the NFL offseason continues, it is odd to see most teams slowly making decisions regarding their head coaching and general manager deicsions.

Last two times the Arizona Cardinals hired head coaches, Steve Wilks in 2018 and Kliff Kingsbury in 2019, they were done by this time.

Of course, the Cardinals already had their GM in house in Steve Keim, so what about those hiring GM’s as well?

Last year, SB Nation had tracked seven GM hires and six...

Cardinals’ Free Agents: Market Values

Michael Chow-Arizona Republic / USA TODAY NETWORK

Yesterday on Twitter, Kyle Odegard posted PFF’s projected “annual values for the Cardinals’ free agents” and I felt compelled to offer what I consider more realistic assessments.

Although, the salary cap will be significantly more than last year’s, I am of the belief that aside from the first two days of lavish spending, after the market settles down, free agent contracts will trend toward the modest side.

In my opinion,...

NFL overtime rules come into question again after Kansas City Chiefs beat Buffalo Bills

Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images

13 seconds was all it took for Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs to completely devastate the Buffalo Bills and their fans.

Many are now rehashing old arguments about the NFL overtime rules, and while I agree that it sucks for the Bills to lose the way they did, they had their chances.

People will complain that Josh Allen never got his shot in overtime, that he had played as well and maybe even better than Patrick Mahomes in the playoff...

Arizona Cardinals projected to receive three compensatory picks

The Arizona Cardinals need to add talent in the 2022 NFL Draft.

We can discuss the merits of who is picking or developing the draft picks, but the reality was obvious this year... The Cardinals need their draft picks to start being contributors.

This offseason could add three (maybe four) compensatory draft picks according to Over the Cap.

Over the Cap has the Cardinals getting three compensatory picks right now:

Could the Arizona Cardinals need to start a search for a new defensive coordinator?

It is a single tweet and means nothing overall, and while we will wait for a bigger name to come out and potentially corroborate this tweet, we as an Arizona Cardinals site will continue to monitor the situation closely.

Matt Cannata is speculating heavily, but he had this to say on Vance Joseph.

Unless the #Dolphins are on a secret spy mission trip for their next head coach, then I think the next HC will be Vance Joseph.

Red Rain: Reversing the Arians Curse and Top 5 In-Home UFA Priorities

Ever since Bruce Arians’ hubris woke up the sleeping giant that has become the Los Angeles Rams, it now, to quote a Shakespearean phrase, is more apparent than ever that Arians cast a “plague on both houses,” both the Cardinals’ and the Buccaneers’.

Over the course of the five years that Sean McVay has been the Rams’ head coach, here is how his team has fared against the Cardinals and Bruce Arians:

Kansas City Chiefs open as touchdown favorites over Cincinnati Bengals

In what was one of the most entertaining and enthralling games in NFL history, the Kansas City Chiefs somehow outlasted the Buffalo Bills.

It is one of the most painful losses I can remember in recent times, and the Bills will have to find a way to overcome that.

Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Bengals got some interesting luck with Ryan Tannehill throwing his third interception of the game and setting up Evan McPherson for a game winner.

It is another matchup of...

It has been quite the season for the San Francisco 49ers.

How can a team that lost twice to the Arizona Cardinals make it all the way to the NFC Championship Game?

Yet, here they are.

With Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback.

Is it Kyle Shanahan?

Is it DeMeco Ryans?

Is it just the fact that John Lynch has built a team and added the right veterans to compete consistently?

Or all of the above?

2022 NFL Draft: Arizona Cardinals add great interior offensive lineman in PFF Mock Draft

As we move through the offseason we will see hundreds if not thousands of 2022 NFL Mock Drafts.

The question becomes, what value do you buy in each of these mock drafts?

Do you buy the Arizona Cardinals using the pick on an edge, on a cornerback, on defensive line, on offensive line?

What happens if they go off script and grab a wide receiver?
