Cardinals Underground - Super Time To Be Seeking A Coach
Feb 07, 2023
Super Bowl week has arrived, our trio of Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck have been sent to a proxy studio, and the Cardinals are still looking for a head coach. That gives plenty to discuss in this week's podcast, including analyzing reported coaching finalists Mike Kafka and Lou Anarumo, the possibility of any other candidates post-Super Bowl, who has the edge between the Chiefs and the Eagles, and Dani's need to get comfortable (and seen) in a new studio.

Cardinals Underground - Pet Peeves And Breaking News
Jan 31, 2023
What annoys Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck? Sure, they delve into that, but it's interesting in real time as they talk about the Cardinals' coaching search, only to have the news Sean Payton and DeMeco Ryans are headed to different teams break while the trio records. How will the coach search proceed? Also, what about Kyler Murray's rehab timeline? Or the possibility Tom Brady ends up in the NFC West? Or the need for the Cardinals to rebuild the offensive and defensive lines? Just please, don't park crooked. Or stop out of nowhere when you're walking in the airport.
Cardinals Underground - Waiting To See The White Smoke
Jan 24, 2023
The Cardinals are in the process of choosing their new po.., er, coach, and that gives Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban, and Dani Sureck plenty to chew on. Taking a look at the reported coaching candidates: Brian Flores, Frank Reich, Sean Payton, Dan Quinn, Vance Joseph, Ejiro Evero, Aaron Glenn and (maybe) DeMeco Ryans, the trio talks about who makes sense, what the timeline to a hire might be and what steps still are left. Also, there is chatter about Isaiah Simmons' option year, the final four in the NFL, and Dani insisting she'd be available for a weekend hire, even if she might be far away.
Cardinals Underground - A Fresh Start With Ossenfort
Jan 17, 2023
The new GM has arrived, and with Monti Ossenfort's hire comes plenty to discuss between Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck. There are the first impressions of the new hire, the decision to hire externally rather than internally, Ossenfort's desire to put his own spin on what he has learned in his career, DeAndre Hopkins' future, Ossenfort's to-do list, dealing with free agents, how to tolerate egos (or not), and who might be the next head coach.
Cardinals Underground - The Search Is Underway
Jan 10, 2023
Luckily, the bike cops weren't at the Dignity Health Training Center for Paul Calvisi and Dani Sureck. Of course they weren't there for Darren Urban. So with that Super Bowl intrigue avoided, the trio had a chance to discuss the Cardinals moving on from Kliff Kingsbury and Steve Keim, the need for accountability and what that means in a coach, the importance of the relationship between coach and GM, Kyler Murray's role in all of this, the possibility of Sean Payton, internal vs. external hires, and a farewell to Kliff.
Cardinals Underground - End of the Season? Bingo
Jan 05, 2023
As promised, Dani Sureck created the Paul Calvisi Bingo cards, although we don't have a winner yet. Still, the two – plus Darren Urban – had plenty to chat about going into the season's final game, including the quarterback shuffle, Kyler's recovery, David Blough's opportunity (and facing Nick Bosa), the offensive line going forward, Brock Purdy's emergence, J.J. Watt's final game, the recovery of Damar Hamlin, and some New Year's resolutions.
Cardinals Underground - Watt A Time To Say Goodbye
Dec 27, 2022
J.J. Watt surprised everyone with his announcement this week he was retiring, but Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck were probably going to talk about how well the defensive end was playing anyway, so it's an easy segue. The trio discuss Watt's decision, his big final season, the impact he's had on the Cardinals in a short time, and even his Hall of Fame timeline. They also chat about Budda's toughness, how they deal with Baker's absence, how they dealt with Tom Brady and a plan for New Year's Resolutions.
Cardinals Underground - The Things We Should Not Say
Dec 20, 2022
With a Christmas game on deck, Paul Calvisi lets us know about the phrases no one should be using in the workplace. (No, not those phrases. The other ones.) Then he, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck discuss the Cardinals' quarterback quandary, Trace McSorley's likely first start, Tom Brady's troubles, the fight for respect during such a tough season, the drama and distractions of 2022, and why no one should be using the snooze on their alarm clock.
Cardinals Underground - Losing QB1
Dec 13, 2022
The season isn't over for the Cardinals but it is over for Kyler Murray, and that's mostly what Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck discuss as we hit the final stretch of games. How will Kyler deal with his rehab both mentally and physically? What might the timeline look like, and how the comeback of Joe Burrow might encourage Murray. Other topics include Colt McCoy taking over at QB, how the Cardinals might approach these last games starting with the Broncos, and Paul almost hits his mark after a perfect setup from Dani.
Cardinals Underground - Confidence Is King
Dec 05, 2022
It's a day-early-posting of the podcast coming off the bye, and Paul Calvisi was in such a fog he almost forgot to turn on his mic. Nevertheless, Darren Urban and Dani Sureck rescued Paul from himself as the trio talk about what the expectations are for the final five games of the season. Other topics include battling the Patriots who have almost as long of prep time before next Monday's game, if training camp really impacted 2022, avoiding The Wrath of Aikman, Mac Jones' own sideline yelling, getting Kyler trending upward and building confidence, gaining meaning from the season, seeking upticks from Trey McBride and consistency with Isaiah Simmons, and Paul's sad tale of almost missing his Oregon exit.
