A. Not being overly impressed with the Jimmy Graham trade
B. The offensive line of Russell Okung, Alvin Bailey, Patrick Lewis, J.R. Sweezy, Justin Britt. scares nobody and
C. With so many key players in a contract year...will they be trying too hard?

Who has the best offensive line in the NFC West? One former QB says Arizona -Arizona Cardinals
The tweet came from SiriusXM NFL Radio over the weekend, with host and former NFL QB Jim Miller saying that it is the Cardinals with the best offensive line in the NFC West.

It makes sense, with the Cardinals’ big free-agent purchase the past two offseasons being offensive linemen (Jared Veldheer and Mike Iupati) in addition to a No. 1 draft pick (Jonathan Cooper.)

The outcome hinged on a decision by the executive committee of FIFA, soccer’s governing body, and a single vote could tip the decision.
And at least one vote, prosecutors said Wednesday, was for sale.
I can't be the only one who tastes the delicious irony here.
The most feared units in the league -NFL
When NFL coaches meet to discuss the challenges presented by the next game on the schedule, the conversation focuses first on identifying the biggest threats on the opposition's roster. Coaches carefully craft game plans to minimize these guys' impact -- or just avoid the "monsters" altogether. With that in mind, here are the 10 position groups that I believe create the most fear in meeting rooms across the league:
