Cardinals Underground - Goodbye Bye, Hello Protocols
Coming out of the bye week, the Cardinals were left having to deal with COVID issues within the defense. Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Kyle Odegard talk about potentially losing Devon Kennard and Byron Murphy and why they have the depth to get through it; why stats aren't always everything and a way back story from 2004; How to deal with newbie Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa; those pesky bye issues; how the NFC Playoffs might shake out; Chase Edmonds' time to shine; and oh, that start to 2012.
Cardinals Underground - Lessons Of The Owners Meetings
Alas, Darren Urban didn't look at his bingo card closely enough, and that's a problem. But if Dani Sureck and Paul Calvisi can get past that, there is plenty to discuss this week, including the culture the new free agent additions can bring, the trade winds around both the No. 3 pick and DeAndre Hopkins, the unknowns around Kyler Murray's return and the Cardinals' current QB situation, Isaiah Simmons' "good health news," the future at center, and the reality of Thursday night flexing.
Cardinals Underground - Additions and Subtractions(?)
The Cardinals haven't added a ton of new pieces, but they have brought in some and there are still questions to answer, as Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck discuss. Free agents arrive like Zach Pascal and Kyzir White, but what might the future hold for DeAndre Hopkins and any potential trade of the wide receiver? It feels like quarterback, at least the veteran kind, has been settled by adding David Blough with Colt McCoy behind Kyler Murray, while the defense is helped with Antonio Hamilton and especially L.J. Collier, since defensive linemen are scarce. Oh, Dani also has a new T-shirt she wanted to show off.
Cardinals Underground - Three Cards For Monti
Free agency opens with the Cardinals making sure three of their own don't leave (and with news of a new linebacker), but this time of year there is always plenty to discuss. Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban, and Dani Sureck chat about bringing back Kelvin Beachum to help in the locker room and a culture change (and about those Kyler comments …); the need still on the offensive line and what might happen with Josh Jones; losing Zach Allen and the thin defensive line; cutting Markus Golden and adding Kyzir White; what to do with Isaiah Simmons; what to do with DeAndre Hopkins; and it's REE-SIS, not REE-SEES.
Cardinals Underground - (Not Really) Rising Up The Draft Board
Back from the Combine, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck have plenty to discuss with Paul Calvisi as free agency arrives in a week. No, Paul, there really shouldn't be an all-Combine team. But the quarterbacks are the linchpins of all this, whether it's Bryce Young, C.J. Stroud or Anthony Richardson, as picks above the Cards or the reason someone will want to trade with the Cards. Or maybe, the trio discusses, sticking with Will Anderson is the thing to do if possible. They also chat about the need at cornerback, veteran quarterback moves around the league, D-Hop's future and Dani's need for bottle service.
Cardinals Underground - Cardinals Unveil New Combine-ation
It's time for another Scouting combine, so while Paul Calvisi holds down the fort in Tempe, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck join in from Indianapolis as the new dynamic duo of Jonathan Gannon and Monti Ossenfort go through their first trip as Cardinals. Among this week's topics: the future of DeAndre Hopkins, what free agents that the Cardinals might want to keep, what happens at quarterback while Kyler Murray sits out, the benefit of picking No. 3 overall – and who the Cardinals might snare there – and even Dani's nod to Darren that, yes, he might actually be fun.
Cardinals Underground - Nick Quick To Reach Coordinator
As Nick Rallis is named defensive coordinator, Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck talk about the winds of change around the Cardinals. That means the youth of Rallis and the incoming coaching staff, the energy of new coach Jonathan Gannon, how long the "new" stays as an adjective, the health of Kyler Murray and Colt McCoy and the QB conundrum for the offseason, Murray's potential work under center, incoming changes to the draft process, and Dani's quest to be forever in her 20s.
Cardinals Underground - Starting The Gannon Era
Jonathan Gannon is on the job. Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck give their first impressions of the new coach, note the players on hand to greet their new boss, Gannon's plan for accountability, Kyler Murray and the relationship with Gannon, who might call the defensive plays, the connection between Gannon and Monti Ossenfort, Gannon's belief in himself, and his immediate vibe he brings to the building.
Cardinals Underground - Gannon Is The Guy
The Cardinals chose Jonathan Gannon, the defensive coordinator of the Eagles, as their new head coach, and that gives Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck plenty to talk about. Topics include Gannon's secretive path to the job, a new energy level, what comes next at offensive (and defensive) coordinator, how he might mesh with Kyler, his background lending itself to building up the lines, and Dani's dream in the middle of the night (at 5:30 a.m.)
