Goodbye DRC, You Will Be Missed


I will miss Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and he goes out with a lot of class as documented in his official statement upon leaving the Arizona Cardinals found here http://bit.ly/rnm8IV

My two best memories of him were:
 
1) The 99-yard interception against Rams which clinched the game and an NFC West division for the Cardinals.
 
2) The unbelievable interception against the Giants in the end zone.
 
He also had an uncanny ability to catch up to a receiver (or sometimes almost catch up) when he was beaten by four steps and you thought for sure it was going to be a touchdown for the other team.
 
Yes, he was burned a little too often, but I always had the feeling he would improve with experience.
 
Patrick Peterson has some pretty big (and speedy) shoes to fill … I hope’s up for the challenge.
 
Good luck, DRC.

    Let us hope that the losses of such talented Pro-Bowlers will be enough to suffice the ravenous appetite of the sports Gods. Lord knows that the owners and management minds of the Cardinal’s team have been focused on sacrificing more home talent than Aztec Priests tearing out the hearts of warriors at the sacrificial alter to appease the Sun God! Here in The Valley of The Sun mean while, we have fallen to the bottom of the pile in the NFL West against teams like the Sea Hawks and Rams! They say that one man does not make or break a good team, but there lies the rub–a GOOD TEAM! Ever since Warner faded away, so have the Champions once known as The Cardinals. So I ask the owners and the management minds of the Cardinals. Was THAT season a one time wonder? THIS time it’s NOT because you didn’t have a strong fan base. It WASN’T because you didn’t have a dome stadium to play in and it wasn’t because you were in Tempe. Allowing top players, vets with Pro-Bowl experience to leave the team makes you look like the kid in the corner wearing the pointy hat. Unfortunately only time and ticket sales will tell. By the way,if you thought Tempe was quiet during game day back then, the stadium in Glendale echoes pretty badly with the cheers of opposing fans when THEY are the only ones sitting in the stands.
