Red Rain Podcast: “Upon Further Review” with Marcos Labrada of AZSports Underground

Marcos Labrada (AZSports Underground), Kyle Ledbetter and I discuss what we consider to be false assumptions made about the 2022 Arizona Cardinals. Thank you Marcos for your keen perspectives.

Should Steve Keim be relieved asap of his GM duties? Yet another Keim position gaffe. Josh was tried at RT, was miscast as a G, and finally in yr 3 he is clicking at LT which has...
