    CB Malcom Butler is contemplating retirement. I think most of us here can appreciate what Malcom Butler did when he intercepted Russell Wilson at the goal line to seal Super Bowl XLIX for the Patriots. I hope he does end up retiring - it would leave a big hole in the Cardinals secondary.

    Zach Ertz was traded to the Cardinals. Arizona annually uses the tight end as little as any team in the league so we'll have to see how it works out for Ertz, though Kyler Murray was surprisingly throwing to Maxx Williams a fair amount before Williams suffered a season ending knee injury. So maybe they'll actually make use of Ertz, who was one of the leading tight ends for a number of years until recently.

    Yeah they wouldn't have traded for him if they weren't going to use him. Certainly his usage doesn't go down after being free from having to start behind Goedert. At worst it stays the same and the trade just moves a 5th round pick from the Cardinals to the Eagles who are marginally more white-friendly in the draft.

    Andy Isabella has no stats through five games and is usually a healthy scratch, not even worth carrying as a special teams gunner. Rondale Moore is up to 21 catches on the year already.

    Ertz seemed to have a lot of energy this week as Philly's primary TE and obviously has something left in the tank. Problem is, I just don't care to wish any success on any member of the Cardinals.

    What's been done to Andy Isabella is uncalled for and very unfair. We all know why he is ignorred. Wake up America. We are not wanted by the powers that be. That's
    why we need to support our own people first and foremost and create alternate economies. Maybe even someday alternate sports leagues. Racism is only allowed when
    it is against whites worldwide.

    Supposedly the dreaded covid has struck the head coach and some assistants and a player, probably the bogus test but who really knows, actually I would like to see the worst caste teams get totally virus blocked for a week or two or six.

    J. J. Watt lost for the season (again). He had four All-World seasons from 2012 to '15, and another one in '18, but otherwise it's been one serious injury after another. What a shame, he at least was an all-time great for a while:

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports J.J. Watt needs season-ending shoulder surgery.
    Watt was injured last week against the Texans and played the second half with the issue. Ruled out for Week 8 earlier Wednesday, this is now worst-case scenario. The recovery is expected to be three months, so maybe there's an outside shot he could be ready to return sometime during the playoffs if the 7-0 Cardinals make it there and go deep into the postseason. Watt only has one sack this season but is Pro Football Focus' No. 10-graded interior defender with really strong marks for his pass-rushing. It's going to be a big loss.

    Man seems like Watt is nearing the end of his phenomenal run...

    Watt was making a big impact on the Cardinals defense. Despite still having Zach Allen and Dennis Gardeck I want the Cardinals to go on a losing streak due to their loathsome head coach, the QB playing the same system he has since high school and most importantly the squandering of Andy Isabella’s career

    He just can’t stay healthy - first half of his career he was on track to challenge Reggie White for best lineman of all time. A shame he has been injured so often the last few years.

    Only in this clown world of keeping white men down would the fastest man on the field (who also happens to be a top flight route runner with incredible hands) be a healthy scratch.
