Cardinals Underground - This Podcast Is Voluntary
Maybe talking on Underground isn't voluntary – such as the strength and conditioning workouts are now for the Cardinals – but surely Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck wouldn't pass up the chance to talk about the return of players officially, how Kyler Murray isn't the only vet not here for optional work, where the Kyler story sits at the moment, J.J. Watt's travels, Dani's upcoming YouTube show with Rondale Moore, the chance the Cardinals go offense in the first round of the draft, socks and candle stores, and the inspiring story of Haggai Ndubuisi.
Cardinals Underground - Of Scorpions And Scrutiny
Before the trio take a summer hiatus, Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban, and Dani Sureck discuss scorpion (semi-)horror stories, as well as deep dive into some other football topics as the dead of the offseason approaches. Among the discussion points: The addition of Josh Jackson and the cornerback position, Markus Golden's mindset, contract extensions that may or may not be on the horizon, the need for J.J. Watt with the pass rush, potential Keim Time Signs, impact battles between key players on each side of the ball, Paul's quest for a new motto, and what makes a good vacation.
Cardinals Underground - An Offseason Over, Training Camp Next
Paul Calvisi leads Darren Urban and Dani Sureck into some BTS talk – mostly behind the scenes, as they discuss a never-boring offseason now that minicamp is over. The trio get into the question at center and Rodney Hudson, defensive versatility and where Isaiah Simmons and Zaven Collins might work, the crowded running back room and where Eno Benjamin fits, burgeoning leadership and accountability from younger players, the importance of J.J. Watt's health, Hollywood's work ethic, Maxx Williams mystery, Collins as play caller and, of course, Kyler's contract talks.
Cardinals Underground - Highway To The Danger Zone
Poor Paul Calvisi can't get a ticket for the new Top Gun movie (but he is confident he is taller than Tom Cruise), yet he is ready to lead Darren Urban and Dani Sureck into this week's podcast. The crew talks D-Hop's birthday, Aaron Donald's new contract, a potential D.J. Humphries extension and the status of the entire offensive line; a potential parallel between Hicks/Collins and Beachum/Jones; what the pass rush might need; a power ranking of Keim Time Sign needs; a potential punter battle; and Dani tells us about bowling with BCBC.
Cardinals Underground - Coping And Kyler
It is a difficult week for the Cardinals, who lost a teammate and, for some, a friend after the passing of Jeff Gladney. Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck discuss how the Cards are coping while Kyler Murray returned to work for the first time this offseason. Murray's presence brings up a host of topics: Kyler's evolving leadership, his potential contract and when it might happen, how the Cardinals got "comfortable" late last season, and the Kyler-to-Hollywood Brown connection. Vance Joseph also talked about the learning curve for Zaven Collins and Isaiah Simmons, and Paul already wants to bring up the season-opener.
Cardinals Underground - Knocking Around On Camera
Hard Knocks is coming to the Cardinals, and the stars won't be Bo Whitlock or James the dentist, but it's a topic ripe for discussion between Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck. There is also plenty of banter about the Cards choosing to get on Hard Knocks to help with the second half of the season, the comfort level that might have undercut the Cardinals down the stretch in 2021, a potential new running back, Kyler Murray's presence/absence at OTAs, Murray's contract timeline, the latest power rankings, Dennis Gardeck and what's left to do at edge rusher, playing international games, and an off-the-cuff delving into the miracle and mystery of driver's ed.
Cardinals Underground - Sorry Not Sorry
Paul Calvisi and Dani Sureck get a primetime mea culpa from Darren Urban, and that's just the beginning of this week's podcast, which includes talk about those first six D-Hop-less games, how you rate a schedule, what was seen at rookie minicamp, the impact of Hollywood Brown on Kyler Murray in the locker room, potentially disguising the offense, how the rookie outside linebackers translate to the pros, analyzing just what kind of defense the Cardinals have, buying dinner for your parents as an adult, the look at cornerback, the best primetime game, roasting Tom Brady and Darren's near-death experience.
Cardinals Underground - Smells Like Team Schedule
Paul Calvisi only wishes Dani Sureck was better about watching old Nirvana videos. Alas, no, so the two – along with Darren Urban – have other stuff to talk about. What's the best game on the Cardinals' upcoming schedule? The best road trip? The place where you should eat crickets? And what else can they debate? How about the Cardinals' run defense, and how important it might be to the Cardinals' success? There's also discussion about primetime games, what happens at tight end, what it means to have D-Hop missing so many games early, free agents the Cardinals still might sign, the depth at center, and key promotions on the coaching staff.
Cardinals Underground - Hopping Into Wideout Issues
Sure, it was draft weekend, but let's face it – the bigger news for Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck to hash out all were in the wide receiver room: the trade for Hollywood Brown and the suspension of DeAndre Hopkins. What do each of these things mean for the Cardinals in 2022? That's something for our trio to chew on, including how this mirrors (or doesn't) the 2019 suspension of Patrick Peterson. They also talk about how Kliff Kingsbury and the offense can work those first six games, why the Cardinals took a tight end over pass rushers in Round 2, the battle in the offensive backfield, whether the draft duo of Cameron Thomas and Myjai Sanders can produce as rookie pass rushers, a look around the NFC West, and Dani's inability to keep her yawns out of this professional broadcast.
