Arizona Cardinals


Darnell Dockett Live-Tweets Police Stop

I will admit that one of my biggest pet peeves is reporting on what took place on twitter. I try not to do that because it makes me feel like a troll. But I thought this was interesting.

I followed Arizona Cardinals LB Darnell Dockett on twitter for a little while and this man can really drive you nuts with his commentary. But to his credit, he is rarely, if ever, boring. Today he didn’t disappoint. Dockett was stopped driving his Escalade by two police officers who asked him if they could search his car. According to the tweets, when the policed requested the search, Dockett said some version of neaux, neaux, and HELL NEAUX.

I’m glad Dockett knows his rights. It’s not uncommon for black men in fancy vehicles to be pulled over. Unlike a lot of young black men, Dockett is better positioned to take a stand without fear of recourse.

Read his string of tweets below.

After The Trade: Kerry Rhodes Adjusting Well in Arizona

Kerry Rhodes Steams Up Your Computer Screen

Arizona Central profiled Free Safety Kerry Rhodes’ adjustment to life in Arizona. If you’ve been watching the games, you know he’s been a great addition to the team. He already has 36 tackles (32 solo) an interception, and two recoveries that ended with him in the end zone. I think he could very well have a career season.

Last year there was a bit of drama. He was in a short twitter battle with Rodney Harrison (who later denied his involvement) and was briefly benched by Jets Coach Rex Ryan presumably for not having his head in the game, and then traded after it became clear things weren’t going to get better.

Sometimes it takes a change of scenery to make things better for a player, and I hope Rhodes and the Cards can establish a rhythm and achieve better than than their current .50 record.
