Your Valentine's Day links to kick off the morning.
It is Valentine's Day! And you are here because you love the Cards. To start the day off, you have Ryan Williams talking about how he was not mentally ready to play last year, some talk about Kevin Kolb, some players that are getting recognition for their play despite not making the Pro Bowl and then some good NFL news. Oh, and someone put together a football team based on dinosaurs. I don't get it either.
Word From the Birds Blog | Williams was "scared" and running back questions
"I won’t say I was rushed, but … people don’t even understand what was going through my head when I got that ball," Williams said.
Word From the Birds Blog | Kolb contract an issue, ribs aren’t
I have had some questions today about Kolb’s health. When I last spoke to Kolb the day Arians was hired (via text) he said his ribs were doing well. I don’t expect those to hinder him in the offseason, for those worried his 2013 could be in jeopardy. Obviously he has to stay healthy once the games begin, but there shouldn’t be 2012 aftereffects.
