5 moves the Arizona Cardinals can make to play in Super Bowl 54
The Arizona Cardinals haven’t even been to the playoffs in three years but the Super Bowl isn’t as far off as some may think
I know what you’re thinking, this guy has lost his mind. How in the world can we mention the Arizona Cardinals and the Super Bowl in the same breath, especially after a dismal 3-13 season.
It’s easy, there is potential. There is also more parity in the NFL thanks to free agency. Sure, most believe the Cardinals don’t have a shot to even have a winning record in 2019 but you just never know.
Get that offensive line fixed
Easier said than done, yes. However for the Arizona Cardinals their offensive line has usually been a year to year proposition anyway.
It wasn’t great in their Super Bowl 43 run. It was pretty good in 2015, their last trip to the NFC Championship. It was alright in 2016, but just a mess in 2017 and 2018.
Injury had a lot to do with it but inconsistency was the main factor. Guys like Mike Iupati and D.J. Humphries had their moments but not enough of them.
Mason Cole at center along with A.Q. Shipley is a start but needs so much more. They can’t afford to make the same mistake they did last year, taking a guy like Andre Smith in free agency.
Drafting is easier said than done. Free agency is always a crap shoot, but the Cardinals need to be willing to spend to get the right guys to protect quarterback Josh Rosen.
