Happy Monday one and all.

We are getting back to Arizona Cardinals football this week and after the bye week I can tell you, despite being 3-7-1, we are lucky to get to watch Kyler Murray and Kliff Kingsbury work every week.

There was some bad, bad football on yesterday.

Let’s hope the growth continues the final five games as well as some more urgency on the defensive side of the ball.

We can talk about that later, but let’s take a look around the web on the Arizona Cardinals.
