Just in case you forgot, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians doesn’t want to be on the HBO show Hard Knocks.
It’s such a shame he doesn’t.
Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic put together a solid piece full of Arians and his quotes which would make great television. People would miss out on gems like these:
Asked what he thought of some of his players viewing him as a father figure: “I don’t like that,” he said. “I’m the cool uncle you like to have a drink with. Everybody had that uncle, that you just love that uncle. He might call you a little (expletive) or something. That’s me.”
On not giving his players too much time off during the off week: “Too many times when a guy gets a day off, he gets tased in Miami, South Beach, or something. We don’t want any of that stuff.”
On living life at full speed, going for the green on the golf course and throwing deep on the football field: “No risk-it, no biscuit.”
The storylines are there too with Tyrann Mathieu trying to recover from knee surgery. Carson Palmer is in the latter stages of his career. Larry Fitzgerald as the All-Pro looking for his title ring. Darnell Dockett–enough said.
We previously discussed how it would be a good thing for Arizona to be on the show. Look for an announcement in the next few weeks.
