It's only 89 days... that's not bad, right?

There's only 89 days until the Arizona Cardinals kick off the 2016 season, which seems way to far away, but there are some good stats to coincide with the number 89.

Let's take a look.

  • Paul Christman in 1945 and Ryan Lindley in 2012 each completed 89 passes.
  • Kurt Warner's quarterback rating in 2006 and 2007 was 89.8 and 89.3.
  • Leeland McElroy had 89 rushing attempts for 305 yards and one touchdown in 1996.
  • Gary Hogeboom in 1989 and Josh Scobey in 2004 had 89 rushing yards. These are both real people.
  • Frank Sanders in 1998 and Anquan Boldin in 2008 each had 89 receptions.

Another interesting fact about 89 is the Arizona Cardinals have had 26 players wear number 89. David Boston is the only one who was good.
