Flush the Pocket will be your daily morning dose of theArizona 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. – This should come as no surprise: Arizona’s defense is considered among the best in the NFL. But SI.com’s Doug Farrar went one step further, calling the Cardinals the best defense in the game.
In his All-22 column, Farrar dissects what makes the Cardinals’ defense so good under first-year defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. Farrar does a nice job of explaining the backstory of Bowles joining the Cardinals under a cautious eye from fans because of their admiration for former defensive coordinator Ray Horton.
Then Farrar breaks down the differences between Horton’s 3-4 and Bowles’ version.
