  1. Cardinals losing three big players

    first warner, then dansby, rolle and boldin
    this is not the same team anymore on either side of the ball

  2. Armando Salguero wonders why most fans of the Phins think his writing is dull and unimaginative. (or at least that’s how the one-liner should read). Don’t worry Armando…we still have the rest of the beat writers that are better than you are anyway, so I won’t hold this one against you….
    With a team that has a bare cupboard of talent, giving away more than one pick for one hole isn’t very smart. Boldin would have undoubtedly helped us, but losing a 3rd and 4th rounder would have hurt more than any help Boldin could have given us. Who’s to say that Boldin wouldn’t have been hurt and missed some time or was less than 100% as has been his history ?? This isn’t sour grapes, just that the price for Boldin really outweighed his worth, in this case…

  3. Said Colts LB Gary Brackett, “I really feel like we have some unfinished business. We went to the Super Bowl this year, and kind of didn’t get the job done….”
    “kind of” didn’t get the job done?
