88 Days until Arizona Cardinals Open Seasons

The regular season opens in 88 days, what are some stats for the Cardinals with the number 88?

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

There are 88 days until the Arizona Cardinals open the season, and there have only been four players since 1950 to wear the number 88 for the Cardinals, and I have heard of zero of them.

What are some other interesting "88" stats?

  • J.V Cain, Fred Hyatt, Sonny Randle and Floyd Sagely all wore 88 for the Cardinals. These are all real people.
  • Charli Trippi completed 88 passes in 1951.
  • Neil Lomax had a quarterback rating of 88.5 in 1987 and made the Pro Bowl in the teams last year in St. Louis.
  • Emilo Sitko in 1952 and Beanie Wells in 2012 each had 88 carries in a season.
  • Bryant Johnson had 88 targets resulting in 46 catches and 528 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2007.
  • Larry Fitzgerald has averaged 88 yards per game in two seasons, in 2005 and in 2011. He was a Pro Bowler in both seasons.
  • Rashod Swinger had 88 career solo tackles from 1997 to 1999.
  • Rashad Johnson had an 88 yard interception return for a touchdown in 2014. Do you remember what team it was against?

Those are some 88 stats with the Cardinals.
