Cardinals Cover 2 - A Real Voice In The Locker Room
Ep. 433 - Leadership can take many forms. For most of his career, Budda Baker has chosen to lead by example. Only on occasion has he spoken up. In 2021, you can expect a more vocal Budda Baker. He's earned that right as Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki discussed during their conversation about the safety position. It's a position with some real questions, at least in terms of how many safeties the team will choose to keep on the 53-man roster. Also, is there anyone out there who can help Zaven Collins buy a house?
Cardinals Cover 2 - Rookie Minicamp Review
Ep. 566 - It may have been just three days, but they were three important days. Remember, the goal of every player is to make a good first impression. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki discuss the now-completed rookie minicamp. How did the draft class look? Any of the undrafted free agents stand out? And keep in mind, it is early. Also on the table in today's episode, Kliff Kingsbury comments on the DeAndre Hopkins suspension and just-released schedule. Plus, a veteran has been added in the defensive line room.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Studying The Schedule
Ep. 565 - Four primetime games. The bye week arrives in Week 13. The home opener will be against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Those are just some of the highlights of the Cardinals' 2022 regular-season schedule, which has officially been released. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki give their thoughts on how the 17 games are laid out over 18 weeks. They pay particular attention to the season's start—remember DeAndre Hopkins will miss the first six games—and the finish; certainly don't want to see another late-season collapse.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Welcome, Rookies
Ep. 564 - Well, they're finally here. Two weeks after their selection, the Cardinals' 2022 Draft Class has arrived. The eight players, highlighted by tight end Trey McBride plus edge rushers Cameron Thomas and Myjai Sanders, will get their first taste of life in the NFL with rookie minicamp this weekend. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki talk about what they want and hope to see over the next three days. Plus, it is official. Finally. Kliff Kingsbury's coaching staff is complete. Five assistants have been promoted and Matt Burke is the new defensive line coach.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Filling The Hopkins Void
Ep. 563 - Without DeAndre Hopkins, what is the offense going to look like? Good question. The good news is the Cardinals have two things going for them: 1) time and 2) options. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki focus on the latter. From Marquise Brown to A.J. Green to Antoine Wesley plus don't forget about the tight end and running back; all will be needed to help fill a rather large hole on offense. Also, the guys discuss whether the defense may need to add another piece, specifically a veteran presence on the defensive line.
Cardinals Cover 2 – Return To Estadio Azteca
Ep. 562 - A rematch 17 years in the making. It is official. The Cardinals will play the San Francisco 49ers in Mexico City on Monday, November 21st. That's right, Monday Night Football. The Cardinals and 49ers played the NFL's first-ever regular-season-game outside the U.S. in 2005, and now they meet again. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki react to the Week 11 matchup. Also, Rolando Cantu joins the show. He helps explain the excitement and significance of the NFL returning south of the border for the first time since 2019.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Draft Grades
Ep. 561 - Because that's what everyone wants to know immediately after the draft, how did my team do? Very well, apparently. The national or outsider's perspective was fair and pretty consistent across the board. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki discuss what is being written about the Cardinals' eight draft picks. The guys also look at how the draft went for the rest of the NFC West. First though, the news that DeAndre Hopkins will miss the season's first six games is certainly not the news anyone wanted to hear to begin the week.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Five New Faces Brings Draft Class To Eight
Ep. 560 - A running back, cornerback, outside linebacker and two offensive guards made up the Cardinals' five picks on Day 3 of the 2022 NFL Draft. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki discuss each one, with particular interest in the team's first selection on Saturday, running back Keaontay Ingram out of USC. In total, the Cardinals added eight new players over the three days. They addressed positions of need, stayed true to their board and, oh yeah, let's not forget about the acquisition of Marquise 'Hollywood' Brown. In other words, it was a very productive draft.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Edge Rusher Addressed, Tight End Added
Ep. 559 - Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft saw the Cardinals double down on their biggest need: edge rusher. The Cardinals spent their third-round selections on San Diego State's Cameron Thomas and Cincinnati's Myjai Sanders, a pair of defensive ends who will line up at outside linebacker. That all, though, occurred after the Cardinals added Colorado State tight end Trey McBride, a player too-talented to pass up in the second round. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki react to all three selections plus give their first impressions of Marquise 'Hollywood' Brown.
