Well, the Hall of Fame Game for the Arizona Cardinals is going to be the Blaine Gabbert show.

At least for the first half.

Bruce Arians, in his post practice press conference revealed none of the Arizona Cardinals starters, along with Drew Stanton and newly acquired Tramon Williams, will play in the 2017 Hall of Fame Game for the Arizona Cardinals as they take on the Dallas Cowboys.

It is a statement of importance to see as much as you can of all the players on the second and third teams, not just Gabbert, as the intermediate cutdowns are gone this year. Yet, it also tells us, that the Cardinals are not going to risk injury in a meaningless preseason game to any of their impact players.

It will be a great test for many of the young players, especially those along the offensive and defensive line, that are fighting for positions on the roster.

Are you disappointed that the Cardinals will be holding all of their starters out for the Hall of Fame Game?
