    With the 2018 season right around the corner , Pro Football Focus continues their trek through the positional group rankings.Now, they are on the secondaries.The Arizona Cardinals have a nice group, but with the way Pro Football Focus grades and coming off what they considered a down year for Patrick Peterson, they find themselves in the second half of teams in the league.19. ARIZONA CARDINALSProjected starting lineup:Starting cornerback: Patrick Peterson, 79.6 gradeSafety: Antoine Bethea, 86.7Safety: Budda Baker, 84.5Starting cornerback: Jamar Taylor, 74.0Nickel cornerback: Bene Benwikere , 76.7Luckily for the Cardinals, the starting spot across from Peterson is one of the easiest jobs in the NFL. Unluckily for them, they lost Tramon Williams this offseason and have little hope of replacing his production from a season ago. They traded for Taylor this offseason from Cleveland, but there was a reason why the talent-needy Browns were willing to part ways with the former second-round pick. Taylor allowed 69.3 percent of his targets to be completed a season ago and has allowed a passer rating of 111.4 in his coverage for his career.The Cardinals are banking on a turn up for Taylor and Benwikere, with Budda Baker taking his part time play and filling it in a full-time capacity. Does Bethea continue to turn back the clock? Finally, does Patrick Peterson, in the eyes of PFF, get back to being among the top corners in the game.Meanwhile Womens David Johnson Jersey , the rest of the NFC West ranks as follows:3. Los Angeles Rams11. San Francisco 49ers21. Seattle Seahawks Being 1-6 is bad enough, but when one of your star players suddenly decides he wants out, things go from bad to worse really quickly. That is exactly what happened Monday when a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter came out that Patrick Peterson has demanded a trade from the Arizona Cardinals prior to the October 30th deadline. Whether Peterson actually gets traded remains to be seen (he is under contract through 2020), but the point that still stands is this: something bad is brewing within the Cardinals organization. Much of what is happening appears to lead back to head coach Steve Wilks. The quick hiring and firing of Mike McCoy, who was also fired rather quickly last year by the Denver Broncos, was the biggest telltale sign of that, as well as players on both offense and defense having subpar seasons. Now with the Peterson news getting out, there appears to be some toxicity in the locker room. Players are obviously tired of losing almost halfway through the season. That is to be expected. But if Wilks had control of the locker room and had players believing that they still had a chance to turn things around Authentic Tre Boston Jersey , that wouldn’t be an issue. The regression has decidedly reached a point where players have given up. All of this puts Michael Bidwill, the Cardinals team president, in a tough spot. Something obviously isn’t working and this year was supposed to be a “re-tool” as opposed to a “rebuild”, which obviously isn’t the case. The Cardinals are hardly even competitive in most of their games. Combining all of these poor outcomes could mean a one and done season with Wilks at the head coaching position. It could also mean Steve Keim is on the hot seat as well (although, I would guess his seat isn’t as hot as Wilks’). I don’t envision anything happening before the end of the season with anymore of the coaching staff or front office, but as everything stands, there is a lot of work to do in these final nine games to change the image that the Cardinals have suddenly created for themselves.
