There are only 81 days until the Arizona Cardinals kick off the 2016 NFL Season. Here are some 81's

throughout the Cardinals history.

  • Kevin Kolb's quarterback rating in 2011 was 81.1.
  • Logan Thomas' only career completition was an 81 yard touchdown pass to Andre Ellington in 2014. It is still the best throw by a QB in the Arians era. Debate your monitor.
  • Gary Hammond, a wide receiver, also completed one pass in his career. It was also for 81 yards... It did not go for a touchdown.
  • Andre Ellington in 2014, Fran Polsfoot in 1950 and Jackie Smith in 1974 all have career long receptions of 81 yards.
  • Four of the best offensive players in Cardinals history wore the number 81: Jackie Smith, Roy Green, Frank Sanders and of course, Anquan Boldin.
  • One of the fiercest defensive players in NFL history wore 81... Night Train Lane.
  • Also Jim Dray wore 81.

Any more 81's?
