A Super thank you from two Cards’ stars

Posted by Darren Urban on February 3, 2013 – 10:33 pm

If you were watching the Super Bowl (you were watching, right?) and you were watching the commercials, hopefully you noticed the NFL’s spot during halftime that was a thank you to fans, highlighting four teams that went out and surprised specific fans with a huge present – a present that happened to contain real NFL players.

The Cardinals were one of the teams, with Calais Campbell and Patrick Peterson the hidden surprises in the box. Our video team was on hand as the NFL shot the Cards’ part of the commercial, and put together this great behind the scenes video.

    Sad. It feels like the old days again where we’re left to spin a positive local story from what amounts to an unintended cameo in a feature film. “Did you see Calais cross the street in front of Joe Flacco? That was Joe Flacco!!”

    This was the best commercial of the night. Cards hiring the coach of the year looks good too. My congrats to Q on getting his ring, glad it came against SF.

    What a TOTALLY GREAT idea!…Props to the marketing department for this. Saw the commercial as we were cheering on the Ravens, our man Anquan, and company in one of the best Superbowls ever (second to the Cards/Pittsburg game only with a happier ending)! I have to say this did put a smile on my face and helped to wash away some of the disappointments of the past month. After the “pwer outage” *wink, wink* incident I felt sure the NFL had “fixed” the game for the favored 9ers but alas, the better team won despite the help. CONGRATULATIONS BALTIMORE RAVENS! and GREAT GAME ANQUAN BOLDIN!
    After an emotional season, it’s nice to have a happy ending afterall!

    Well, according to Michael Schottey at Bleacher report…….we’ve just about hit ROCK BOTTOM……..4 teams have 1/2%…..that’s 00.5%…..of winning the NEXT SUPER BOWL. We’re right in there with OAK, JAX and TENN at the VERY BOTTOM. Must have been caused by bad luck… Couldn’t have been incompetence or lack of anyone really giving a damn……right?………RIGHT?!!!.
    Well here is a part of his judgement; This team needs some serious work over the next 2 to 3 years, and no one should expect a quick fix.

    Maybe we can form a seperate L with OAK, JAX and TENN………yes?……no?….yes?

    Darren……..where would you put the Odds……..I would be VERY interested…..are we going to win one for the Bidder?

    The Cards are in terrible shape and sticking your head in the sand and cheerleading does nothing to change it……… about some truth…….or,….. you can’t handle the truth?……..this franchise is messed up……..and amazingly NOONE IS RESPONSIBLE……..if the ORG doesn’t like people taking shots……..well …..FIX IT!!!…….put some product on the field……..atleast try……..TOO MUCH?????

    RE: Odds

    No idea on odds. I don’t work in Vegas. As for the “ORG” not liking people taking shots, the “ORG” doesn’t run the blog. I do. No one has said anything to me about negative comments. And I believe I’ve posted everything you’ve ranted about, so I don’t really see your point.

    And it would seem to me changing the GM and coach is trying to fix it.

    hey Darren how does the cap penalty work. Can the cardinals release top dollar players if they don’t do as well after the preseason and not take a cap penalty hit?

    RE: Cap hit

    The cap hit is based on prorated bonus money. If a player is cut before the regular season, his salary is no longer a problem but if he had a signing bonus, the pro-rated amount left is counted against the cap.

    watching this super bowl made me realized that I want the cardinals to win so bad. I would do just about anything to see my team raise the super bowl trophy.

    Darren: Any chance you could interview Anquan Boldin for a future post Super Bowl interview?
