Cardinals Cover 2 - No Lion, Another Date With Detroit
Ep. 319 - The Cardinals and Lions will do battle for the fourth straight season this Sunday at State Farm Stadium. Can the Cardinals improve to 3-0 for the first time in five years? Mike Jurecki presents his three keys to victory plus the ‘X’ factor in the matchup. Also, Jurecki and Craig Grialou discuss the extra motivation for linebacker Devon Kennard as he goes against his former team.
Big Red Rage - 'Big Brother' Beachum Leads On And Off Field
Right tackle Kelvin Beachum joined Paul Calvisi and Ron Wolfley to discuss the Cardinals’ 2-0 start, blocking for Kyler Murray and providing leadership for his teammates. Beachum also talks about the upcoming game against the Lions, his philanthropy, voter registration and interests off the field including drones and robotics.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Time To Ground And Pound
Ep. 318 - Looking at the numbers, this has the chance to be a big week for Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds. The Cardinals rushing offense is among the best in the league, while the Lions have had difficulty stopping the run through two games. Meanwhile on the defensive side of the ball, coordinator Vance Joseph said his unit is “on high alert” when considering the Lions offense. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki examine the many weapons at the disposal of quarterback Matthew Stafford.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Lessons Learned From 2019 Meeting With Lions
Ep. 317 - Let’s be honest, the first impression of Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray was not ideal. For three quarters of the 2019 opener against the Lions, nothing went right for the rookie head coach and his signal caller. Fast forward 17 games to another meeting with Detroit and the Kingsbury-Murray pairing looks much better. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki discuss some of the lessons learned from the 2019 matchup. Plus, a conversation about the importance of Andy Isabella’s first two catches of the season.
Cardinals Underground - Cards Are Who We Thought They Were
Yes, it’s only two games, so no one should proclaim a finished product. But Paul Calvisi, Darren Urban and Kyle Odegard still have plenty good to talk about, like Kyler’s legs, Fitz’s position, an offense spreading its wings, the pros and cons of going for it on fourth down – especially deep in your own end, a defense standing out but one that will be tested by a Lions’ passing offense, how good De’Vondre Campbell has been (and what that means for Isaiah Simmons) and a schedule that (shhh) sets up nicely. Not that Kliff Kingsbury is gonna let his team think about it.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Defense 'Night And Day' Improvement From 2019
Ep. 316 - It’s a small sample size, but what the Cardinals' defense has shown through two games cannot be ignored. Craig Grialou and Mike Jurecki go over the improved numbers and highlight the play of the three key free-agent additions: De’Vondre Campbell, Devon Kennard and Jordan Phillips. Campbell, especially, has stood out in coverage. Plus, the guys discuss how the rest of the NFC West fared in Week 2.

My Favorite Podcast
What a great podcast, I love how you guys have constant content that I can listen to everyday to catch up on what’s up and coming for the AZ Cardinals. It’s very interesting how you guys answer questions from the audience like me, I feel more apart of the show hearing answers to our personal questions and interests of the team. As if I were there asking questions to the coaches and players myself!! You are gonna get 5 stars everyday from me!! Thanks.
Any new material?
If I hear, “Cardinals won the off season,” “Tick Tock”, or “The future of football,” then I delete the rest of the podcast be so I know there will be little or nothing new. Same speculation week after week.
How about a deep dive into each draft pick with interviews with position coaches and scouts? How about illustrating differences in blocking schemes (inside/outside zone, gap blocking plays)? How about illustrating some of the basic rout concepts? How about illustrating the difference techniques between 4-3 and 3-4 including one gap vs. two gap? Finally illustrate various types of coverage schemes. Show examples of each from actual Cardinal games. This would be a very welcome change instead of discussing why/why not Kyler will be MVP or continue to speculate on who is going to start without even a single practice. If you don’t have anything new, why have a podcast?
Good not great
Enjoy the team news but a lot of the episodes are very redundant and Ron Wolfley reminds me of Bill Walton... in a bad way.
