It's been all red for the Arizona Cardinals as they literally clobber their opponents and make a strong statement early in the season, sending a message to their division rivals and to the rest of the NFL: We're in it to win it.
In my second season of fielding a Fantasy Football (FF) team, I won the first place prize. And I won the high point total also. It was impossible to predict when the season began how much a person could learn about himself by truly committing to the process. Here is my list.
Back when the Arizona Cardinals were 7-1 and had the best record in the entire NFL, I wrote a piece here entitled "Why We Shouldn't Trust the Arizona Cardinals' Early Success" and was generally bashed for my stance and analysis.
At 7-1, the Arizona Cardinals have the best record in the NFL. This improbable success has led the team to the top of the NFC West, arguably the toughest division in footbal. But, there are some major reasons why you shouldn't trust this football team.
The beginning of pre-season was looking pretty bleak for the Oakland Raiders. Coming into today game, the offense was a big concern. The lack of cohesive play and Carson Palmer's continued streak for interceptions per game has become alarming.
The Chargers have already lost their RB and a major WR, Kansas City is a sleeping tiger for 2012, Oakland still goes as Darren McFadden goes and, despite appearances, it's not all about Peyton Manning in Denver.
Now a quarter of the way through the NFL season, one of the league's better quarterbacks is under contract yet nowhere near his team as we speak. The relationship between Carson Palmer and the Cincinnati Bengals appears past the point of no return. Let's examine.
