After the news came in last evening that the Cardinals have re-signed TE Zach Ertz to a 3 year contract and that LG Justin Pugh has restructured his contract to save the team some much needed cap space, in the immortal words of Fergie of the Black Eyes Peas, I “got a feeling” that “tonight’s gonna be a good night.”

From this long-time fan’s perspective, to win in the NFL you need tough-nosed veterans who feel a keen sense of loyalty to their team, their coaches and their teammates.
