All of us have many traditions that we are fond of around the holidays; baking cookies, caroling or even looking at Christmas lights. But the Arizona Cardinals are developing a new tradition, finding a head coach.
The Arizona Cardinals front office have been “numbed” by the sting of their most egregious coaching decision in recent history. It was only a few months ago when fans heard “It’s a re-tool, not a rebuild.” A promise that has certainly left the Birdgang disappointed and upset. So what’s next?
The holidays are upon us and it has many fans reflecting on all of the things they are thankful for. Their hometown team may not make the list of things fans are thankful for, which begs the question, what are the 2018 Arizona Cardinals thankful for (potentially)?
The Cardinals enter their much-anticipated bye week right as the trade deadline came to a close. Many fans were expecting to see some trades come to fruition, only to be disappointed by the lack of action in what seemed to be one of the more active deadlines in recent memory. Fans saw four notable wide-receivers dealt this year mid-season, as well as some defensive talent. Which may leave some fans wondering, “What gives?”
The Cardinals are struggling to put together a complete game. There will be no time for excuses as they have a quick turnaround at home against the 2-4 Denver Broncos. Denver is coming off of a close loss to the Rams, where Todd Gurley torched their defense for 208 yards rushing. Can the Cardinals finally see their run game flourish? Here are the keys to victory.
The NFL game for a potential star Quarterback picked high in the draft is much like a new toy introduced into a daycare center. The excited children represent the rough and tough defenses in the league that are ready to rip into the new toy once it’s placed in the playing area. Old toys get moved to the side and the desire to play with them becomes less interesting, as they have lots of wear and tear and have been beat down by the children until they can’t play any longer.
After a tough loss Sunday to the Washington Redskins, close to 200 fans lined up at the Free Agent Sports Fan Cave Sports Collectibles Store in Paradise Valley Mall to meet Cardinals star Running Back David Johnson. Members of the AZ Birdgang Fam were exclusively allowed to say hello, take a picture, and even got an autograph from their favorite Cardinal. We saw plenty of good items being signed; custom helmets, posters, magazine covers. Even a few UNI Mini Helmets showed up to David’s surprise.
