The Arizona Cardinals have had to sit and dwell on their 34-11 loss to the L.A. Rams.

To add even more insult to that loss, the Rams went on to win the Super Bowl. As a result, the Arizona Cardinals should be absolutely fired up come Sundays in the 2022 NFL season. With that being said, the Cardinals are going to need everything to beat their evil older brothers from the west.

That’s why these three players especially will have a chip on their shoulder, with their sights set on proving people wrong. The Cardinals missed a few key contributors last year, which hurt them down the stretch.

If these three can stay healthy, the Cardinals’ chances of success significantly improve. So let’s get into the first Arizona Cardinals player on our list.

Rondale Moore is already fighting for relevancy and a roster spot on the Arizona Cardinals

When Rondale Moore was drafted, it was a controversial pick as the team already had a second-round wide receiver that was supposed to be “the guy” in Christian Kirk. It also didn’t make sense to add another wide receiver to the room when the Arizona Cardinals were (and still are) trying to figure out what to do with Andy Isabella.

Add on another wide receiver entering the room in Marquise Brown, and suddenly Moore is facing a very steep hill once DeAndre Hopkins returns from his suspension. Will Moore still be relevant in an offense loaded with talent?

That’s why Moore will have a chip on his shoulder. If he wants to be a part of this offense, he’ll have to prove he can do more than just be a bubble screen guy. Moore needs to get downfield and make those deep plays like we were told he could do.

It’s already a crucial season, but Moore has a great shot at accomplishing his goals.
