My CB Draft
My team is defiantly a Zone Team with the potential to go to man with rookie boost. The Awareness is there, the hope is there also. People thought it as strange when I went two MLBS in the draft last year and a year I went all TES. The idea of flooding a position some find odd, but its me.

Introductions to the Cardinals
We'd like to welcome our rookies to the great PFL league and to the Cardinals organization.
SS Matthias Farley Height 5'11"
College: Notre Dame Drafted 2.27
When I went trading this offseason, never did I imagine I would find a SS this good so late in the draft. So I basically traded for nothing. Like everyone keeps telling me, just trust things will fall to me. (maybe they have a point.)
Nice speed for a S, can play zone or man 2 man
Good jump to go against tall WRS.
Strength to play aggressive
I don't see a overwhelming weakness with this player..
CB Elijah Samuels 5'10"
College Maryland drafted 4.32
Elijah is a Zone Corner that could be good with the right conditions. He will need work on Awareness and a little luck with rookie boost to speed and acceleration could take Elijah to the next level.
Potential for good Speed(pending boost of 1 or more)
Awareness Needs tweaking but can be worked
Acceleration is sub par (could be better with boost)
Jump is sub par ( could be better with boost)
Could get burnt off line if playing bump
Agility is horrible
Darryl Roberts 6'0"
College Marshall Drafted 5.7
Can play Zone or man, Will hope for a boot in acceleration
A shot of awareness would be nice
Good speed, Ok acceleration
Good awareness for a rookie.
Weak, won't play bump very well.
Low Jump, won't win the end zone coverage
CB Trent Craig Height 6'0"
College Cincinnati Drafted: 5.30
Craig is one of three corners drafted this year. He is part of the big push to bolster Pass defense.
Craig is a Zone Corner, and yet to be seen if he can transition to Man(rookie boost will help determine this) Will be a camp body.
Will get burnt by fast WRS
Is weak , needs to play soft coverage
Needs work on playbook and awareness
Agility is horrible…
At 5.30, You can't expect much and its for sure we didn't on this pick.
Others Brought in
Ernie Mayes (82) CB#2
Mayes was in from UFA, and truth be told he was brought in for Kick returns. We only spent 3 pts obtaining him with plenty of space in the salary cap.
He has great quickness, and good alertness, it will be hard to get anything by Mayes
He has a strong vertical Jump, which will help against tall WRS
He is smaller then what most people like in this league.
He doesn't have great strength so playing bump and run will be hard for Mayes.
When I get it in my head I am going to fix a Position, I go the exta mile to make sure that its taken care of it, rather its draft a half dozen Tes, draft 2 MLBS, or three CBS.. The Task is done to the best I can. This year it was the pass protection year not only did I trade for a SS( that later I regretted as soon as I drafted SS Matthias Farley, but who knew he'd be there)
Later in the draft I went with three CBS who weren’t exactly the greatest but was in the goal of pass
Protection. These three CBS ill be ok in the zone Defense, and they have a chance of going to man based on getting rookie boost.

Phoenix, Arizona- The end of a Era is near as we say goodbye to both LB Mosely and LB Lindsay and bring in HB Gurley and LB Cravins.
When i took the position as GM both Lindsay and Mosely were here to great me, They served the team greatly as i took on the task of rebuilding this team., least one thing i didn't have to worry about is being set at OLBs.
OLB Cravens drafted by the Bills will take over, A far as awareness goes we don't miss a step. Cravens faster , lil bit more of a nastiness about him.
OLB Cobrani Brown joined us last year from free agency.He will will continue to be productive for us.
MLBS Woodsen and Carpenter
Both are equally important in the 3-4 scheme and drafting them last season was important. we may switch Sides on them and see if thats anymore effective .
Since i been here I have been looking for a HB as good as Gurley, we went through several hbs in attempt to subdue the dire need, and eventually patience is paid off.
Struggling Martin will not be back next year and things are still a little in the planning stage as to who will replace him. We might go Rookie Burton here and just run it for the year under HB Gurley.
Keep tuned here for all your PFL Cardinals News ...

Game wrap up:
Jets came in with two great HBs and our defense came in with the plan to control the backs and push the Jets to pass. The game was a battle of HBs that the Cardinals done just barely enough to get a win, the win came down to the last drive where QB Dynamite threw a
Interception (MLB Mayes caught that interception)
The two names picked up in week Two are:
Wr Duane Dwight - picked up for the remainder of the season.After our success with Romberg in practice and week one we look to add another reciever who would normally be overlooked due to his height. Based apon what is in the UFA pool we feel this is a worthwhile receiver who caught 23 receptions with 0 drops for the Rams. looking over his 9 years in the league he has a low percentage of dropped balls, we are hoping this continues for the year.
HB Jeremy Gore- Gore will be the 2nd rookie Hb brought into the fold. Gore brings in good speed and a decent ability to break tackles. We believe with the right training in a few seasons Jeremy is looking at a chance of becoming a starter.
We believe there's room for Perkins to become a important role to us , but local doctor reports show he has a bit of a asthmatic issue, it will be interesting to see how bad Perkins wants to be on this team as the 2nd hb.
Wr Roberrt Woods
Robert comes from the Titans who traded for TE Hewitt and 5th round pick.
Woods will serve as the slot , his history includes 96 receptions and 26 drops
The trade helps us at wr , gives us a late round pick at the cost of a te at which we had a surplus.
Wr Donaldson will be the 4rth reciever who still is young enough to get better.

Arizona went through hardships this past season with their newly acquired QB Johnson throwing 21 interceptions in a single season. their goal this draft was 2 fold.
1. Draft a Qb of the future and develop him this season.
A. We drafted Jared Goff who has a nice Awareness of the game and an arm to throw a deep ball. Jared will stay on the sidelines until the season is to the point of knowing there is no post season and perhaps longer if we have a good season.
B. Johnson still has 2 seasons before he starts regressing. Goff can use these 2 seasons to gain 4 more points in throw accuracy and Awareness in tc and, to be honest, we could use the next 2 drafts to obtain a Solid WR core.
2. We need to rebuild our defensive line
A We have spent the last 3-4 seasons obtaining our Offensive line and not a lick on our defensive line.
B. Cardinals draft DT Chris Jones...
( insert from a interview Ed Reed had to introduce Jones to the NFL)
for his size he is uniquely gifted..... um :pause: he is a former basketball player..
You can see his passion in the locker room and out on the field. Warning a man his size should never wear spandex
When moving around you can see his athleticism and you say to yourself "My God this guy is Huge"
We feel honored to get him in the third round. We would have grabbed him at 2.9 if Goff would of been taken before we got there.:..:::
He is well diverted in many positions.: we could move him to DE if we ever move to the 3_4..
DT Andrew Billings
Andrew will be converted to a De .He comes to Arizona needing to work on upper body strength but has enough athletic prowness to be dangerous. What we saw in him is his high agility and speed at point of impact.
more to come as we move into ufa round 2

We the Cardinals had a awful year but the bright side is by actually stopping and listening to others we started doing better at the end of the season where we won the last 4-5 games.
Reporter" What made a diffrence to make you start winning
Jones " We stopped stressing out for one, and just started having fun again. We were having a really rough stresed out season where nothing was going right, the further into the season it got the more frustrated and angry we got, eventually all we focused on was the losing. fighting began with the locker room and we just could not go into a game without feeling like we were going to lose again. We lost all the confidence we had. "
Reporter" What got you back into it"
Jones" first we just had to clear all the negativity from the team, then we started listening to other coaches about depth changes and gameplans."
Reporter" what is in store for the future?
Jones" Learning to take it one game at a time, we got a lot of one year contracts so this offseason will be a cleansing of attitude, personel, and discarding old gameplans that just don't work, "
Reporter" is there anything you woulld like to say to the other coaches?"
Jones" i would like to appologize for my actions while i was stressed out. I was really fustrated and took my actions out on other people. It's not until i just talked to my good friend Wiggy that he got me to calm down and see the error of my ways, i never knew i could care so much about winning and loosing that it became a obsticle for success, so thank you Wiggy and he also pointed out some players i had as backups that should be starting such as HB Johnson."
Reporter" Will you be staying in the league?"
Jones " i will if other people can forgive my actions and they allow me to stay in"

QB Johnson improved his game today as the Cardinals took on the Rams under the Trick plays playbook.
WR Sammie Coates showed good things before he got hurt for three weeks in the 2nd quarter.
Hb Fisher showed good things as he drew the attention of the defense, catching it once for a TD.
Rams showed trickery as he kept showing pass and ran with it, Carter is really one tough son of a Bannana , hard to bring down.He caught defense sleeping several times ..
overall the game had a lot of injuries and stil not sure of all the players that will be out.
