    NFL Week 7 review: Looking back at the close Arizona Cardinals win over Ravens

    in Football

    The Arizona Cardinals were on the big stage in Week 7, playing host to the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. They defeated the now 1-6 Ravens 26-18 in a game that should have been that close. A blocked punt and a couple of bad decisions while trying to run the clock out led to the Ravens coming within a pay of perhaps tying the score late in the game. 

    But the Cardinals got the win, finally pulling out a close game and "finishing one," which was the theme of the win. Hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox discuss the win and whether or not the Cardinals really finished the game or not. They discuss the players who stood out and the plays that stood out and looked ahead on the schedule to the team's next opponent -- the Cleveland Brown. 

    Arizona has the Browns game and then will get their bye week at the mid point of the season. 

    Make sure you listen to the show and then head on over to Revenge of the Birds for more great Cardinals talk.

    Football 2 Futbol: NFL Week 7 Recap & Ravens vs. Cardinals MNF Post-Game

    in Football

    Sean, Gary, and Randy start things off by doing a short post-game for the Monday Night Football game between the Baltimore Ravens vs. Arizona Cardinals (2:45-10:45)

    This one came down to the wire, but it was a Joe Flacco interception that sealed the deal.  Now at 1-6 for the season, is it time to stick a fork in the Ravens?  Could teams now be just as worried about that Cardinals defense as they are the offense? We discuss these questions and more.  

    Then we get into our full NFL Week 7 Recap (10:45-85:45, or 10:45- 1 hour and 25 mins) as we go through every game talking about each team, who looks good, who looks bad, and also answer some lingering questions as well.

    Randy takes everyone through the big results in College Football Week 8 and we head back to the NFL side of things to finish out with Gary's Top 5 Fantasy Pick-ups for Week 8, Our Top 5 Power Rankings, and the Player of the Week. (85:45-End or 1 hour and 25 mins-End)

    Arizona Cardinals Week 10 review: A signature win over the Seattle Seahawks

    in Football

    The Arizona Cardinals got what they needed on Sunday Night Football. They got a signature win against the two-time defending NFC champs in Seattle, defeating them 39-32 on Sunday Night Football. The win gives the Cardinals a three-game lead in the division with seven games to go and drops the Seahawks to 4-5, which puts them along with five other teams with the same record, two games back of the final wold card spot. 

    In the newest All-Cardinals show, hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox talk about the significance of the win and what it means to the team. Jess speaks of how this win was the result of other games and what they learned, and they both talk about minimum expectations for the rest of the season and what their ceiling could be. 

    They go over the good and the not so good in the win as well, talking about the play of Carson Palmer, Michael Floyd and others. 

    GIve the show a listen and head over to Revenge of the Birds for more great Cardinals content.

    Arizona Cardinals midseason grades, MVPs, 2nd half schedule

    in Football

    After the bye week, the Arizona Cardinals now enter the second half of the season 6-2 with a two-game lead in the NFC West. After a week off of the show, hosts Jess Root and Seth Cox look back and grade the first half of the season -- how did each position group and side of the ball do? With how the Cardinals have played, it's hard to give them low marks. 

    Who are the team's offensive and defensive MVPs? Both the hosts weugh in. 

    Then they talk about the remaining schedule and how crucial the next four games are. If Arizona can somehow win all four, they will have put away the division and also grabbed national attention as a favorite to come out of the NFC.

    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!

    in Football

    The Arizona Cardinals lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday and did so losing to Landry Jones, Pittsburgh's third string quarterback. Carson Palmer threw two interceptions and missed a wide open John Brown in the end zone. The Cards could only score one touchdown in four red zone trips. 

    After the loss, hosts Jess and Seth talk about the different issues and wonder how in the world the Cardinals lost that game. They were dominating the first half. They talk QB play, offensive line play, the lack of focus and discuss the notion of the Cardinals beating themselves. 

    Enjoy the show and if you want to discuss it more, head on over the Revenge of the Birds.
