Five games down, 11 more to go. Sunday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals was definitely one of the easiest, most anxiety-free games I’ve seen in a long time. The Philadelphia Eagles looked flawless.
After a win like this I would usually celebrate pretty much all week until Thursday, when the new week starts and then my focus turns to our next opponent. But seeing as this is a short week for Philadelphia, the high off this win came down early Sunday evening and I hope the Eagles aren’t letting these wins get to their head. It’s only Week 6, there’s a lot of football still to play and this is not the time to underestimate any team.
The Arizona Cardinals made a stunning move this morning by trading a conditional 2018 sixth-round draft pick for New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson, and for the second time this year have released running back Chris Johnson.
This move to add a running back comes a month after their September roster addition of former Patriots running back D.J. Foster, who played college football just 30 minutes away, at Arizona State University.
Trade! The New Orleans Saints have traded Adrian Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional pick per sources
The Arizona Cardinals are through the first five weeks of the NFL season, which seems as good a time as any to check in and see how the team is doing.
On paper, this team looked like a solid contender going into the 2017 season, with hopes heavily resting on star running back David Johnson, and a strong secondary. It was understood that success would depend heavily on a few key elements:
Offensive line must protect quarterback Carson Palmer
David Johnson must be fed frequently
Defense must increase interior pressure on opposing QBs and stop the run
Special Teams errors must be minimized on snaps and kick coverage, and kicking accuracy/output must be increased
Hello, my Football Family! It seems like the season is still a long ways away and in all reality….. It is! The good news is that we have made it to NFL Draft Week 2017.
Day 1 of the draft starts on Thursday, April 27th where teams will select their 1st round picks. The Arizona Cardinals have the 13th pick in Round 1 currently but we all know how things can change during the draft. I have narrowed it down to the player that I would be extremely happy about the Cards picking up on Thursday. *Drum roll please* It has to be Texas Tech Quarterback Patrick Mahomes!
There is no surprise that we need a quarterback for the future of this team and I think this kid would fit in perfectly.
