Cardinals Cover 2 - Hard Knocks Reax: Episode 4
Ep. 621 - Things don’t always go as planned. Mistakes happen. And when a player makes mistakes on the football field, everyone can see them. That was the case for Isaiah Simmons earlier this season. He addressed his benching after Week 1, something that really stood out to both Craig Grialou and Dani Sureck in the latest Hard Knocks In Season episode. Antonio Hamilton, too, had a not-so-good moment caught on film. And, yes, there were several not-so-good moments captured during the loss to the Chargers. Plus, as the team heads into its bye week, it is a good time for Grialou and Sureck to shout-out a pair of 30-year-olds who are not acting, or perhaps better said, playing their age.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Offense Unable To Close Out Chargers
Ep. 620 - Three times in the fourth quarter the offense had the ball with the chance to finish the game. And three times they failed to get the job done. The Cardinals found a different way to lose on Sunday. Craig Grialou and Paul Calvisi look back at the 25-24 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Just poor execution down the stretch; really on both sides of the ball late in the game. There were other issues as well. The Cardinals turned the ball over twice and had two takeaways inexplicably overturned by replay. Plus, let’s not forget how banged up this team is right now. At 4-8, the Cardinals are limping, literally and figuratively into the bye week.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Kyler Murray, Hollywood Brown Expected Back
Ep. 619 - Good news for the home team. On Sunday, Kyler Murray and Hollywood Brown are both expected to be on the field. Murray has missed the past two games, while Brown has not been in uniform since Week 6. Craig Grialou and Paul Calvisi look ahead to the game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Two desperate teams. Both having lost three of their last four. With Brown back, Murray has the chance to throw to his top-two pass catchers for the first time this season. Remember, Brown and DeAndre Hopkins have not yet played together. Also, this should be the week the Cardinals get their running game going. The Chargers have one of the worst run defenses in the league.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Hard Knocks Reax: Episode 3
Ep. 618 - OK, so forget the game. (Not really, but at least for now.) The Cardinals’ trip to Mexico City is one that many will remember the rest of their lives. And maybe no one more so than Will Hernandez. His experience was the highlight of Episode 3 for both Craig Grialou and Dani Sureck. They also enjoyed seeing Antonio Hamilton at his home with his wife and kids as Hamilton detailed his accident in the kitchen prior to the season. The game itself? It is what it is. The question now is how do the Cardinals respond after losing 38-10 to the San Francisco 49ers? The good news is that it appears Kyler Murray will play this week. Maybe even Hollywood Brown. It is a desperate team right now.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Buenos Dias ‘Monday Night Football’

Estadio Azteca in Mexico City is once again the venue for this first meeting of the season between NFC West rivals. Craig Grialou and Paul Calvisi preview the game. Who will be QB1 for the Cardinals? Will Hollywood Brown make his return? And how does the Cardinals defense matchup against Jimmy Garoppolo and the league’s 9th-best offense?See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Cardinals Cover 2 - Hard Knocks Reax: Episode 2
Ep. 616 - Things are always better after a win, right? That includes watching episodes of “Hard Knocks.” Craig Grialou and Dani Sureck reveal their biggest takeaways from Episode 2, one that highlighted many of the fathers on the team be it the general manager, an assistant coach or player. And who knew Kelvin Beachum liked his popcorn and trash-talk? Also, will it be Kyler Murray or Colt McCoy starting at quarterback this week? It’s a question without an answer at the moment. Plus, the latest on Hollywood Brown’s upcoming return.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
