    2016 NFL playoffs: Concerns, takeaways and possible foes for Arizona Cardinals

    in Football

    The Arizona Cardinals wrapped up their season on Sunday with an embarrassing 36-6 Week 17 loss at home to the Seattle Seahawks. It didn't hurt anything in the big picture and it didn't help Seattle. Arizona still is the number two seed and Seattle the number six seed. But with the ugly loss, is there reason to be concerned and were there any takeaways from the game?


    In this show, hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox go over how there isn't really much to take away from the game, except that Seattle needed and wanted the game more than the Cardinals. It was something for their psyche and their confidence against moving forward. 


    They pose the question and give their answer -- should Cardinals fans be more concerned moving forward in the playoffs about facing Seattle potentially?


    Then, looking ahead to the divisional round, they discuss the three possible opponents -- the Packers, Redskins and Vikings and discuss each team's strengths. They rank their confidence level against each team and talk about which team they would prefer to see next weekend. 


    Make sure you give the show a listen and head on over to Revenge of the Birds for more great Cardinals content.

    Arizona Cardinals show Packers why they are a legitimate Super Bowl contender.

    in Sports

    The Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers came into Sunday's game having already clinched a playoff berth. The Cardinals dominated all aspects of the game, and showed the NFL that they are the front runner to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Arizona held the Packers to 178 total yards and forced four turnovers (3 fumble recoveries, 1 interception). They returned two fumbles for touchdowns, and kept the Packers from scoring a touchdown with the interception. 


    Green Bay did not have an answer for the Cardinals front seven. They allowed nine sacks and Aaron Rodgers was scrambling for daylight all game. The Packers also committed seven penalites for 59 yards. It was not the number of penalites that hurt the Packers, it was when the penalites happened. Josh Sitton and Corey Linsley, had penalties that ultimately led to the Packers punting. 


    After a scoreless first quarter, the Arizona Cardinals put up 17 points in the second quarter and never looked back. The outcome of this game could have been decided late in the second quarter. After the two minute warning, Carson Palmer had his screen pass intercepted by Mike Daniels, who returned the ball to the Arizona 15. With the score 10-0, the Packers could have went into halftime 10-7. Justin Bethel intercepted Rodger's pass intended for James Jones. 


    The Cardinals started shutting the door on the this game by dissecting the Packers defense. With 57 seconds left, Palmer led the Cardinals on a seven play, 80 yard drive that was capped with a seven yard touchdown pass to John Brown. Instead of being down by three or seven points, the Packers faced a 17 point halftime deficit. This momentum swing carried over into the second half. The Cardinals defense kept their foot on the gas and scored two defensive touchdowns. 


    The loss means the NFC North Division title will be on the line next week when the Packers host the Minnesota Vikings.

    Boston College Football Week 8: Louisville Cardinals

    in Sports

    A few short weeks ago, Boston College was 3-1 on the season. The main questions about the team didn't center on if they would ever win again; it instead asked how the newer players would be brought along to score points and get the team on the move as competition leveled off after Florida State. Teams like Wake Forest and Duke were on the horizon, keeping expectations around what fans considered normal.


    Now sliding after a three-game losing streak, the Eagles are 3-4 with offensive points at a premium. They deconstructed and began reconstructing on the fly, with Jeff Smith named quarterback this past week. As players start to come back, the Eagles are improving, but the fear now is that the learning curve's gradient is too steep for them to consistently win football games.


    Boston College now heads to Louisville facing questions on if they can win a football game. They took strides forward against the Clemson Tigers and played better. There were definite improvements in the Eagle game. But even though they hung tough in the first half, Clemson was simply better, and they pulled away en route to a 34-17 victory.


    Dan and AJ will take a progress report of the Eagles and dissect the status of the different positions. They'll talk about the improvements made and the areas where there are still holes. They'll talk about how those need to get better and how they can actually fulfill that need.


    Tune in at 8 PM as they discuss this and get ready for the Louisville Cardinals. In a disappointing ACC season, everything is wide open, which means this is a chance for the Eagles to get back on the winning track. Give us a call at 646-200-0446 as we discuss all that is going on in BC nation!
