Cardinals Blogs | Larry Fitzgerald says he isn’t thinking about QB

Larry Fitzgerald’s long round at Wednesday’s Waste Management Phoenix Open pro-am created a time crunch at the end of the day because Fitz had a flight to catch to his home state of Minnesota and the current Super Bowl festivities in which he is now taking part. That meant he had to forego interview

Chandler Jones And All-Time Cardinals Seasons

Chandler Jones set the Cardinals’ single-season sack record in 2017 and made the All-Pro team. That monster campaign left me wondering how it compared to other great individual seasons by Cardinals since the move to Arizona in 1988. Pro Football Reference has a formula that tries to do just that,

What Will Larry Fitzgerald Do?

Larry Fitzgerald did this before, of course. Just last year. The season ended and the future Hall of Fame wide receiver hadn’t committed to playing in 2017, something he mulled until the night of Feb. 1, when he finally said he would indeed come back. He did so in Fitzian ways, catching another 109

Cardinals Blogs | As he leaves, Bruce Arians aftermath

Bruce Arians was the Cardinals’ coach for a day or two when I happened to be in his office as he taped a video for a banquet back in his home state of Pennsylvania. B.A. had confidence. Whether he would’ve been like that 10 years ago as a coach (I suspect yes) or if it was the fact it had taken
