    Head coach Bruce Arians has been frustratingly successful at the helm of a team that largely ignores white players. Arians has gone 35-15 in what is now his fourth season with the Cardinals, winning the division last year. Quarterback Carson Palmer has accumulated some gaudy statistics over his long career. He is probably just a Super Bowl win away from the Hall of Fame at this point. However, Palmer has drawn the ire of some CF fans for his historical preference for black receivers and, lately, his criticisms of Tom Brady.

    Joining Palmer in the starting lineup are three white offensive lineman. That's it. Evan Mathis, a familiar name, has transitioned to right guard as his career winds down. Reasons to root for this team are generally limited to: beating the Seahawks. There are 13 whites on the roster, including the punter, kicker, and long snapper, and just one lone backup on the defense. A white quarterback graces the practice squad during the week.

    Starters:
    QB Carson Palmer
    LT Jared Veldheer
    C A.Q. Shipley
    RG Evan Mathis

    Backups:
    QB Drew Stanton
    C Evan Boehm
    RG Cole Toner
    RT John Wetzel
    TE Troy Niklas

    DT Josh Mauro

    Practice Squad:
    QB Zac Dysert

    Overall Grade:
    F

    So Jaxon Shipley was the Cardinals best receiver all preseason and as a reward for excellence he's not even granted a spot on the practice squad?! Arizona, as well as the entire NFL, is pathetic.

    Hilarious.

    Coach Bruce Arians suggested first-round DE Robert Nkemdiche will be a healthy inactive until he improves his play in practice.

    The 29th pick in April's draft, Nkemdiche played 15 snaps in the opener, but was a scratch for Week 2. It looks like he could be rocking sweatpants for the immediate future. Nkemdiche had some effort question marks coming out of Ole Miss. Calais Campbell and Frostee Rucker are the starting ends.

    Haha he sucks. I was giving that retard Matt Miller a lot of **** last year on Twitter because he was so high on this clown. Both Clowney and Nkemdiche were considered sure fire prospects with upside equal to JJ Watt. In reality they couldn't hold JJs jock strap. Screw the Cardinals.
