Arizona Cardinals 2022 Review
The Cardinals finished the 2022 season with a 4-13 record. Their seven-game losing streak at the end of the season was against four playoff-bound teams and three teams that had similar records to the Cardinals. The team's schedule included games against the Chiefs, Eagles, Vikings, and 49ers. As the season has come to an end, it looks like the team will be looking for a new head coach. Kliff Kingsbury was fired at the end of this past season. The Cardinals may also move on from DeAndre Hopkins, as they plan to trade the wide receiver.
Cardinals 2021 Season Recap
The NFC West Arizona Cardinals were playoff-bound in 2021. The team finished the regular season with an 11-6 record and faced the Los Angeles Rams in the first round of the playoffs. Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins, J.J. Watt, A.J. Green, and James Conner were all key players in this great season.
The Cardinals were also a great road team in 2021. They finished the season with a road game record of 8-1. At home, the team had three wins and five losses. Their overall 11-6 record meant that they earned a wild card spot for the 2021 playoffs. They faced the Los Angeles Rams in that game and bowed out of the playoffs with a loss. In 2022, the team will play one game in Mexico City at the Estadio Azteca stadium. The Cardinals home venue is the State Farm Stadium.
Kyler Murray is looking to lock in as the Cardinals starting quarterback for 2022. He had a career-high completion rate of just over 69%, with 24 touchdowns and 3787 total yards. The team has no plans to use a franchise tag for Chandler Jones. As for Christian Kirk, he's keeping his options open. The team would like to lock him in as their #3 receiver, but there may be a chance that he hits the free-agent market. Kirk had just under 1,000 yards and caught five touchdowns.
2018 Cardinals Recap
The Arizona Cardinals began 2018 with a new quarterback rookie Josh Rosen, a new head coach in Steve Wilks, and a new long-term plan. That plan didn’t last very long though, as Wilks was fired and replaced with former Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury. They decided Rosen did not fit in Kingsbury’s offense, so they sent him packing this offseason. Who did they replace him with though?
In free agency, the Cardinals made a flurry of smaller moves- offensive guard Max Garcia, outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, quarterback Brett Hundley, wide receiver Kevin White, cornerback Josh Shaw, and wide receiver Damiere Byrd all got a one season each for their contracts. Offensive guard J.R. Sweezy was added for two years, middle linebacker Jordan Hicks for four years, and defensive tackle Darius Philon got two years.
In the draft the Cardinals made a bold move, using the first overall selection on quarterback Kyler Murray from Oklahoma. Murray is undersized for an NFL quarterback and was already a first-round draft choice of the Oakland Athletics as a baseball player. All in total the Cardinals had 11 selections in this draft. With their second-round selection, the Cardinals went with cornerback Byron Murphy from Washington. They also added three receivers in this draft- Andy Isabella from Massachusetts, Hakeem Butler from Iowa State, and Keesean Johnson from Fresno State. Other highlights from the Cardinals draft include safety Deionte Thompson from Alabama, and defensive end Zach Allen from Boston College. The Cardinals appear to be finally settled on a direction and ready to move forward in that direction.
2017 Arizona Cardinals Review
The Arizona Cardinals stumbled their way through the 2017 season on their way to a very average year, finishing 8-8, good for third place in the NFC West. The Cardinals dealt with their fair share of injuries, losing both starting quarterback Carson Palmer and backup quarterback Drew Stanton to injuries. Palmer has since retired, Stanton has moved on to the Lions, and third-string quarterback Blaine Gabbert was not re-signed as well. So what did the Cardinals do to replace them this offseason and retool their roster?
For the Cardinals, their first order of business was to hire a new head to replace the departed Bruce Arians, who retired. The man chosen for the job was Steven Wilks who came to the Cardinals after working as an assistant for the Panthers. The Cardinals second order of business was to release some veterans, and they released two big ones- safety Tyrann Mathieu and running back Adrian Peterson. For Peterson, his NFL career may very well be over. Peterson is on the wrong side of 30, is still a free agent, and nobody has any interest in the future Hall of Famer. Once the Cardinals hit free agency, their top priority was quarterback so they signed Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon in free agency plus they claimed Alex Torgenson off waivers. Also in free agency, they signed tackle Andre Smith and cornerback Bene Benwikere.
For the draft, the Cardinals top priority remained quarterback, so in round one they selected Josh Rosen from UCLA. Rosen is Joe Flacco with better mechanics. In round two they added wide receiver, Christian Kirk, from Texas A&M. In round three they drafted their new center Mason Cole from Michigan. In round four they added depth to their running back position with Chase Edmonds from Fordham. In round five they added cornerback Chris Campbell from Penn State. They finished their draft with offensive tackle Korey Cunningham from Cincinnati. The Cardinals have a new quarterback room and a different coach for 2018.
Cardinals 2016 Season Recap
The Arizona Cardinals finished the 2016 season with a record of 7-8-1, taking second place in the NFC West. This was largely due to injuries. The Cardinals were the most injury-prone team in 2016. As the Cardinals are showing their age, they looked to the draft and a bit of free-agent magic to shore up their “leaky boat.” Their first order of business this offseason was re-signing tight end Jermaine Gresham to a four-year extension. They also took care of defensive tackle Frostee Rucker along with running back Andre Ellington. These were just one-year extensions. Their biggest deal was making sure that “mega-talented” outside linebacker Chandler Jones was locked down. They wrote up a five-year extension and Jones signed on the dotted line.
In free agency, they picked up the recently released veteran safety Antoine Bethea on a three-year contract, as well as center A.Q. Shipley is likely to stay around for the next two years. They also brought back the 35-year-old (perhaps future Hall of Fame) linebacker Karlos Dansby for one more year.
In the draft, they needed an inside linebacker very badly, so in round one they “reached a little bit” and went for Haason Riddick. In round two, the team looked for a safety, so they did another “semi-reach” with the pick up of Budda Baker from Washington. In round three they picked wide receiver Chad Williams from Grambling State. In rounds four and five they added depth to their offensive line with guard Dorian Johnson from Pittsburgh and tackle Will Holden from Vanderbilt. They finished their draft by signing running back T.J. Logan from North Carolina and safety Rudy Ford from Auburn. We know exactly where this franchise stands. This is an aging team, and 2017 might be their last stand. There is nothing that Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald would like more than to win the Super Bowl and ride off into the sunset. Will this be their last chance? Possibly.
After having a short run of success that ended with a win, it appears as if the Cardinals are finally moving in the right direction under head coach Bruce Arians. Despite finishing 10-6 a year ago, the Cardinals missed the playoffs due to being in such a tough division. Still, Arizona Cardinals tickets are sought after by fans across the NFL. We are a great source for all games, both home and away.
The Arizona Cardinals entered the 2014 off-season with a bunch of second-tier needs. First and foremost, the needed help at safety. The Cardinals answered this by drafting Deone Bucannon in the first round with the 27th selection overall out of Washington State. They also needed a new tight end so they drafted Troy Niklas out of Notre Dame. Niklas is a big target who has improved by the year since being switched from defensive lineman to tight end early in his career at Notre Dame. Niklas has a high ceiling and this could prove to be one of the best selections of the draft. Also on offense, they needed to add some depth at wide receiver. They have one of the best receivers in NFL history Larry Fitzgerald, but they need depth. They answered this by selecting two wide receivers in the draft. The first was John Brown, whom they selected in the round out of Pittsburg State. The second was in round six where they selected Walt Powell from Murray State. The Cardinals also needed depth at the defensive end, so they selected a pair of those. The first came in the third round, where they selected Kareem Martin from North Carolina. The second came in round five where they selected Ed Stinson from Alabama. Perhaps the most famous need entering the offseason was a quarterback. Yes, Carson Palmer had a good season, but he is old and getting older. The Cardinals selected Logan Thomas in the fourth round from Virginia Tech. Thomas was once considered to be a first-overall selection in the making, but inconsistency led to his drop across the draft boards. Thomas will be an interesting project to keep an eye on.
Cardinals Football History is Rich
The Arizona Cardinals predate the National Football League and were founded in 1898 on the South Side of Chicago. The franchise itself is one of two remaining teams that were founded in the NFL in 1920. The story goes that in 1898, a neighborhood group gathered to play on the South Side of Chicago, calling themselves the Morgan Athletic Club. Chris O'Brien, a well-known building contractor in the Midwest at the time, bought the rights to the team and moved them to Normal Field on Racine Avenue, naming them the Racine Normals. In 1901 O'Brien bought old uniforms from the University of Chicago, which the color had faded on, calling it Cardinal Red, and renamed the franchise the Racine Cardinals. In 1906 the team broke up, but another team formed seven years later and was linked to the previous Racine Cardinals franchise. In 1922 the team was renamed the Chicago Cardinals after a team from Racine, Wisconsin joined the newly formed NFL.
In 1960 the franchise was moved to St. Louis and became the St. Louis Cardinals. In 1987, the franchised moved to Phoenix, Arizona, and became the Phoenix Cardinals. In 1994 they changed their name again, this time to the Arizona Cardinals, to have a broader appeal to the entire region. Despite the history, the Cardinals franchise hasn't had a whole lot of success, of which the logic defies their continued existence. The Cardinals have made the playoffs just 10 times, most recently in 2015. They have won their division just seven times, most recently in 2015 as well. The Cardinals have one conference championship to their credit, 2008, and have two NFL titles to their credit, both of which came before the merger, 1925, and 1947. Throughout its history, they have called eight different buildings home. Currently, they play in the University of Phoenix Stadium.
Currently, the Cardinals have become one of the NFL's better teams. They have had good players for a while, but they lack a key ingredient, a good starting quarterback. They acquired Carson Palmer from the Raiders, two years ago, and made it to the NFC championship game this past season. However, they are also very old and will be looking to draft a quarterback in this upcoming draft to help stave off going back into NFL purgatory in a few years.
