There are only 69 Days Until the Arizona Cardinals Open the Season... Nice

What are some stats with the number 69 for the Cardinals?

With less than ten weeks until the regular season starts it is time to take a look at the numbers that go along with 69 in Cardinals history, and there are some really good stats to go with it.

  • Jim Hart had season long completions of 69 yards in 1973, 1977 and 1980.  Hart's consistency throughout his time with the Cardinals is amazing.
  • Charley Johnson in 1964 and 1969 had quarterback ratings of 69.
  • Gary Hogeboom in 1989 had a quarterback rating of 69.
  • Paul Christman threw 69 career interceptions from 1945 to 1949.
  • McArthur Lane in 1970 and Adrian Murrel in 1998 averaged more than 69 yards per game.
  • Cark Birdsong punted only 69 times in 1981, which is weird because the Cardinals were not what you would call "good" offensively, but when you have Ottis Anders, you tend to be able to get yards on the ground.
  • Mike Gandy was the best 69 in Cardinals history, probably, followed up by Rush Brown.  The last time a Cardinals wore 69 was Mike Gibson, a back up offensive tackle.
Happy 4th of July everyone.
