Bruce Arians joked on Wednesday that finishing the season against four opponents fighting for the playoffs makes it easy to get the Cardinals focused on practice.
“I don’t have to say s—t,” he said.
But as we all have learned the past three years, the Cardinals coach still says s---t, even though he doesn’t have to say s—t.
This week, his message to the players was about preparing as if the playoffs start Thursday night, when the Cardinals play the Vikings at University of Phoenix Stadium.
At 10-2, the Cardinals have the second-best record in the NFC.
