The accountability board is something Bruce Arians brought with him when he came to the Cardinals, in use since his very first training camp. But it always had its place — camp and then the fall. It was put away in the offseason. Until now.
Arians said he was making a new move this year, putting up the accountability sheet starting this morning — now that OTAs had started Tuesday.
“We never do it in OTAs but we’re doing it this year,” Arians said.
It falls in line with everything else Arians has talked about wanting to do differently this season, all in an effort to rebound from a disappointing 7-8-1 record in 2016. Tackle more in training camp. Prep Carson Palmer now for later. Add more leaders in the locker room. And make sure the Cardinals don’t beat themselves — hence, the accountability board earlier than normal.
“We had too many mental errors in games last year,” Arians said. “It’s a point of emphasis.”
