Bruce Arians - C - Cardinals

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was taken to the hospital ahead of Tuesday's practice after he complained of stomach pain.

A prostate cancer survivor, Arians, 63, has been a model of good health since becoming the Cardinals' head man over three years ago. It doesn't sound like anything too serious for Arians, but he's being evaluated in San Diego with the Cardinals in town for joint practices with the Chargers. We'll provide updates as they come, but hopefully this is just a day-to-day thing.

They've had a brutal offseason. Feeling a little like the 2015 Ravens.

Yeah and Rex is on the hot seat this year too. All them injuries to key players won't help.

I hope Arians is okay.

I have to say, after watching 'All or Nothing' I would not want to play for the guy. I'm sure he's a great tactician but I'm not a fan. Hopefully its nothing serious though.

The Bears will be our main rival very soon.. They added a pro bowl Guard and extended the other pro bowl guard
this week. They fixed a lot of their defense this off season. I think they might have pulled the plug to early on
their offensive weapons...

I do expect that team to rise fairly quickly. That's been Fox's track record elsewhere.

the only thing I might question is getting rid of the two best offensive players WR and RB
before the Round one draft pick has proven himself. White was out all last season and the other
star wide out does not want to play there anymore because of pay issues and the Franchise Tag.

From the outside looking in they seem to handle things wrong...(much like the GM in San Diego
did who fought tooth and nail with Marty Ball.) Kansas City had that issue with the GM that
traded Jarad Allen to us...The General Manager making negative comments about Jarad Allen's
character and intelligence after his DUI issues.

Don't get wrong I would do a few things differently than Spielman. The way he handled the Percy Harvin
was beautiful. Not telling everyone about the disruptive behavior. Getting a third and First round pick
from the Seachickens... Sticking with Patterson and Kalil (imo just being proud and not wanting to
admit they were mistakes or bad picks) I mean Kail has been garbage since his second year and we are locked
into 11 million a year or more for a guy that can move 7 yards shuffling his feet at an angle....

Maybe if you intend on duking it out with them for 2nd and 3rd place in the division every year.

Nothing lasts forever, my friend! The Packers run of dominance in the division won't either.

It will last as long as the Packers keep being far and away the best manager of the QB position in the division.
