Episode Notes:

  • There's a great piece here on SI about the Arizona Cardinals' offense by Doug Farrar. He's always worth a read.
  • There's a decent piece here on Palmer's specific fit in the offense that goes beyond "big arm" and goes into his experience and the system around him.
  • While the defense has changed the name and numbering of their fronts, the scheme is not too different from the Bowles defense, which was excellently written up here.
  • AZCardinals.com has a pretty great Film Room section on their site, and they did a few of Tyrann Mathieu. Here's one on a pick-six and one on him defending the run
