Flush the Pocket will be your daily morning dose of the Arizona Cardinals. It’ll recap the top storyline from the previous day and give you a look at what everyone is saying locally and nationally.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Philadelphia is known for a lot of things.

"Rocky." The Liberty Bell. The Fresh Prince.

Yet nothing is more synonymous with the City of Brotherly Love than it’s most famous food: cheesesteaks. If you’re any sort of foodie, you know the most famous cheesesteaks outside of the city belong to Pat’s and Geno’s because they’ve capitalized on their rivalry being located across the street from each other.

But ask anyone who’s spent any time in Philly and they have their own favorite cheesesteak, including Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who played at Temple University under Cards coach Bruce Arians. Bowles’ favorite cheesesteak joint is Ishkabibble's on South Street. He’s been going back every year since he started playing for the Washington Redskins in 1986.

That was the first thing that came to mind when Bowles was asked about returning to Philadelphia, where he coached last season.

“It’s the place,” he said.
