Footballs to the Wall

This might be the year. No, really. A few balls might bounce their way for a change. A bunch of top-tier quarterbacks might be indicted on dog-fighting charges. A plague of injuries might smite their opponents. It might snow. The world might end.

If the Apocalypse does go down, you know it's ´cause this was the Arizona Cardinals' year. That's the Cards' lot, and why we've removed the word "hope" from our vocabulary and replaced it with "whatever."

Go Cards. Hurrah. Whatever. See?

The ´birds open their home schedule with a game against world-class running back Shaun Alexander (pictured) and the Seattle Seahawks.
