Trust Carson Palmer With Your Super Bowl 50 Betting
Now in his 13th season, Palmer has had best season ever in finishing fourth in passing yards (4,671), third in passer rating (104.6) and tied for second in touchdown passes (35). Palmer makes smart decision with the football and generally gives the Cards an even better chance of winning because of his cerebral play.
Skill Position Players
The Cardinals have a bevy of gifted skill position players, starting with ageless wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, a player that looked almost as good as even in recording a team-high 1,215 yards in receptions.
In addition to Fitzgerald, Arizona has an extremely talented running back in dual-threat rookie David Johnson as well as underrated receiver John Brown (1,003 yards). Last but not least, Arizona has a pair of tight ends in Darren Fells and Jermaine Gresham that can both make plays when least expected.
The Cardinals ranked fifth in total defense, eighth against the pass, sixth against the run and seventh in points allowed (19.6 ppg). The Cards have elite defenders in defensive end Calais Campbell, cornerback Patrick Peterson and safety Rashad Johnson among others. Enough said.
Arians is widely respected throughout the league and rightfully so after helping four quarterbacks all reach new heights under his tutelage. Before working with Palmer, Arians helped Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck all play to the maximum of their capabilities.
Here’s what he says is his key to success.
“My quarterbacks have to be a member of my family, and that has nothing to do with football,” he says. “Trust is everything. We have to connect on a deep level in order to really be able to build something together. Trust brings a higher level of communication and a higher level of commitment and accountability. We have to care for one another. It’s all about family, family, family.”
Arians went 9-3 as the interim head coach in Indy during the 2012 season before recording three straight double-digit win seasons with the Cardinals, culminating in this season’s stellar 13-3 campaign.
Make no mistake about it, Bruce Arians is about as elite as it gets in the NFL coaching fraternity.
