If you follow the world of podcasting, you may have noticed that the Fantasy Footballers Podcast is collecting awards in the same way the Arizona Cardinals like to collect wideouts with the last name Brown. Mike Wright, a fan of the Arizona Cardinals and co-host of the Fantasy Footballers Podcast joins us to talk about how Arizona fans are feeling going into this season.
Not only is there tremendous optimism for a team defending its NFC West crown, fans got to enjoy a treat in the past couple weeks of the All of Nothing series which gave an unprecedented look behind the scenes of a football team with Super Bowl aspirations. The guys talk about some of the surprising moments from the show and try and talk Adam into watching it too.
Adam and Mike talk about how this season could hinge on the health of Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, while Mike predicts this year as the final year of Larry Fitzgerald’s career. Adam and Mike disagree on their assessment of Cardinals running back David Johnson while trying to slot the talent of three young backs going into their second year. Who is best among Thomas Rawls, Todd Gurley and Johsnon?
Before getting into Cardinals talk, Adam and Brandan talk about the good news from Thomas Rawls about his health for the start of training camp. The guys talk about whether the team is really set at the backup QB spot and how wedding bells are ringing for two members of the team.
Finally, do better nods go out to the media and how they’re handling the latest decision by the courts in Tom Brady’s case, while Adam has a rant about his latest trip to Best Buy. Better at life this week are Pat McAfee for his performance in the NFL Top 100 as well as his story of his success and Adam gives a shout out to Marshawn Lynch.
