I was present at the Majerle’s restaurant where the taping of the radio show, “The Big Red Rage” was going on at 6pm Wednesday night on Arizona sports 620 radio.
The host of the show this year is defensive end Calais Campbell along with some well known analyst that cover the Cardinals. Campbell was asked if he thinks the Cardinals have a chance to compete in the division this year. His answer did not shock anyone, besides, what is he suppose to say, Campbell said he believes that they can win the division with all of the pieces they have in place.
Hopefully he can see something in this team from the inside that we have not seen from the outside looking in. The Cardinals recently have been picked by analyst Charley Casserly as being a sleeper team in the NFC this year; let’s hope all of the hype is backed up on the field.
Player always believe they are better than their teams predict on paper, so this cant be a guarantee prediction like in years past, but it’s a confident statement made by a confident player in Campbell, who believes this year for he and his counter part Darnell Dockett will be break out years. They are both happy with the new defensive scheme of defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, which lets them put their heads down and cause havoc on opposing quarterbacks.
