Friday Night Open Thread with Revenge of the Birds

Talk about... Anything, with your friends at RotB.

NFL: New York Giants at Arizona Cardinals Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Friday one and all, hope your week has been a good one.

The Arizona Cardinals have been busy this week producing… not a ton of news. However, they have given us plenty to talk about in terms of storylines.

That’s always one thing that gets me during the offseason, is how storylines are created and then we never really get an answer to them

Oh sure, we get an answer, but no one ever goes back and writes whether it was actually a storyline or not.

For the Cardinals, in 2017, these were the storylines heading into camp from 98.7 FM:


1) Jared Veldheer’s thoughts of retirement

2) John Brown’s health

3) Rise of Blaine Gabbert

4) Scooby Wright’s hit on David Johnson

5) A mature Robert Nkemdiche


1) John Brown’s health

2) Jared Veldheer’s thoughts of retirement

3) Rise of Blaine Gabbert

4) A mature Robert Nkemdiche

5) Justin Bethel takes No. 2

Well, Veldheer played the season until he was injured, John Brown was healthy and not good, Gabbert… was Gabbert, Nkemdiche made little to no impact for most of the season and Scooby and Justin were nothing more than special teamers in the season.

I think I see why they don’t go back and recap the storylines of camp or the offseason.
