Levi Brown joins the Cards

Levi Brown, the #5 overall draft pick from Penn State, has finally reached a deal with the Cardinals. He took so long that he's missed the first 5 practices, but hopefully he'll get into the swing of things right away. The Cards hope he'll help improve their weak offensive line. It's hard to imagine them doing worse than last season. Well, at least they have no where to go but up!

Hometown boy

I read an interesting article on the Cards' official site today about Tim Crowder, a probable second or third round draft pick this year. Crowder's from my home town, and the way he's quoted in the article describing the local fervor for football is dead accurate. Just a quick point about high school football in Texas - the rivalries between teams there only serve to raise the quality of play and puts a level of demand on the players that is comparable to that of a college or pro team. High school football produces local celebrities, and they are not sheltered from public endorsement or criticism - they are so easily recognized and so much the center of attention that maybe that don't get as distracted by that stuff later...just a thought.

Ken Whisenhunt signed a four-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals (with a team option for a fifthy year)--he led the Pittsburg Steelers to a Super Bowl win, so big expectations!
