Bruce Arians wasn’t too pleased recently with the Arizona Cardinals wide receivers.  He complained of mental errors.  At the time he said they should be correctable ones he hoped only had to be addressed once and it would be taken care of.  So, when the Cards took to the field today for OTA’s, did he see what he liked?  According to Arians, yes, he was pleased.  That’s good to hear.

This week’s OTA’s are the last team activities before training camp, so get on the same page now so it isn’t a concern come camp time.  The receivers have always been one of my main concerns with this team.  I still don’t think they have a legitimate number two.  Do I believe Michael Floyd will get there?  Yes, eventually.

Also I would love to see Andre Roberts step up.  If Floyd can’t take on a number two role yet, Roberts must be that guy.  Enough playing around.  It’s time to be consistent.  It’s time to be on the same page as your quarterback, same page as your coach.  Quarterback Carson Palmer’s success will be largely on their shoulders.  Of course a decent offensive line will help as well, however, someone needs to catch those deep passes Arians wants to be thrown.

I’m glad to hear there has been progress.  If Arians is happy, that’s all I want to hear.
