Displaying the same stubborn resolve that has made Bruce Arians one of the best coaches in the NFL, the Arizona Cardinals didn’t change their travel plans in the face of a snow and ice storm that hit Charlotte on Friday. And it worked out perfectly for the visiting team, with the Cardinals arriving on Saturday afternoon, as scheduled.
Team spokesman Mark Dalton called the flight “as smooth as [G.M.] Steve Keim’s scalp.”
The Cardinals now hope the game will be nearly as smooth. That’s not likely with a Super Bowl berth on the line. Which should be great news for anyone who tunes in to watch the Cardinals take on the Panthers on Sunday night.
