Cardinals Underground - Kyler Murray Contract Spectacular
In a very special episode of Cardinals Underground, Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck get a chance to talk about the end-of-the-week huge news of Kyler Murray getting his extension. The trio discuss what this means going forward for the QB, the impact on the salary cap, leadership expectations, the pressure now facing Kyler, and of course, Swoosh the bulldog.
Cardinals Underground - For Starters, We Need Answers
After a disappointing loss to the Rams, the Cardinals still aren't sure why they are mired in weekly slow starts. So Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck workshop what they can. Discussion includes the need to lean on the offense, Isaiah Simmons' snaps, being "awake" around Kyler, the running back situation, potential rain in Carolina, what it means when coaches or players talk about "good practices" and "bad practices," potential Trey McBride, the desperation for a win, and Paul delivers a good anecdote about former Cardinal and Panther Jeremy Bridges.
Cardinals Underground - What Happens In Vegas … Is Season-Saving
The Cardinals head into their big NFC West game with the Rams after hitting the jackpot in Sin City, so Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and the internet-less Dani Sureck have lots to discuss. Of course, there is the magic of Kyler Murray, and how his vibe has changed and never has that been more apparent than against the Raiders. There is the stellar offensive line play against Chandler Jones, Isaiah Simmons' current situation and path from here, Byron Murphy locking down Devante Adams, the battle with Aaron Donald upcoming, and Dani's ability to shine on Sunday after a Saturday night in Vegas.
Cardinals Underground - Best Way To Start? How About Over
It was an ugly Week 1 for the Cardinals, but when have Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck let that be a problem? The games matter, so too does the analysis. Our trio breaks down the need to play with urgency vs. practice habits vs. personnel; dealing with Derek Carr; the offensive fits and starts; Vance Joseph choosing to blitz Patrick Mahomes; potential veteran additions; the lack of communication on defense; what we saw from Kyler and Hollywood; the Chandler Jones reunion; and Paul's close encounter with an earthquake.
Cardinals Underground - Regular Season Ready
The games that count are here, and it doesn't get much better than a visit from Patrick Mahomes, who just happens to be Kliff Kingsbury's best player from his college coaching days. With that as a backdrop, Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck jump right into all the Mahomes storylines – facing Kliff, facing Kyler, facing a Cardinals' cornerbacks situation that still has question marks. Where is Kyler Murray mentally coming into this season? How much will the Chiefs miss Tyreek Hill (and is this the best time to play K.C.?) What is the status with Markus Golden, and how will the Cardinals attack the pass rush if he isn't available? There is also the matter of how the Cardinals will plan their offense in this particular matchup, how they will tackle in Week 1, and finally, some clarity on the role of Zaven Collins.
Cardinals Underground - 53-Card Pickup
The Cardinals have gotten to the end of the preseason with their initial 53-man roster, and sure, Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck can't be together but they don't let that stop them from some scintillating analysis. The Cardinals go without a long snapper – kind of; Two QBs means all is right with Colt McCoy; The future and angry play of Andy Isabella; Moving on from Devon Kennard; Holding on to five running backs; Who will RB2 be?; Isaiah Simmons as green dot and secondary duct tape; The trade for Travon Mullen; and the knowledge the 53-man roster will change more before Week 1.
Cardinals Underground - A Titanic Practice In Tennessee
Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck find themselves in Nashvegas, with Paul insulting Budda Baker on the first day and Dani forgetting her bucket hat. But this trip was about seeing what the Cardinals look like heading into their final preseason game, in a joint practice against someone else. So Hop makes eye-popping catches, Cody Ford makes a first-team debut, and injuries make for a tough time on the offensive line, wide receiver and cornerback. What happens in the safeties room? Can Dennis Gardeck be a wild card for pass rush hopes? Is Greg Dortch a lock – and what of Andy Isabella? Also, don't leave your Blackberry around Larry Fitzgerald.
Cardinals Underground - An Offer They Can Refuse
Poor Paul Calvisi. Nobody has seen The Godfather, so his analogy falls flat right out of the gate. Nevertheless, he, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck can deal with it. It is the preseason after all, and at least the Cardinals were clean in their first preseason game. That's discussed, as well as the nasty Marquis Hayes, Kyler and Hollywood back together again, the need of preseason for Kyler Murray, Murray's potential as a coach, using 10 personnel, hard decisions coming at running back, level of confidence at cornerback and pass rush, a trip coming to Tennessee, the beautiful alternate helmets and Paul's penchant for giving nicknames nobody wants.
Cardinals Underground - Crazy Times Before Cincinnati
There are some interesting things going on around #CardsCamp right now, but really, what is on Dani Sureck's bucket (hat) list? She and Paul Calvisi and Darren Urban talk Cards as the first preseason game against the Bengals awaits. Among the topics: a look at the Cardinals' first (odd) depth chart, resting the arms of Kyler Murray and Colt McCoy, starting Trace McSorley at QB, the chemistry between QB and WR, Will Hernandez's spot on the offensive line, the battle to make the running back room, Marco Wilson's progress, players to watch in the first preseason game, and a chance to see Kwamie Lassiter II.
