Players for the Arizona Cardinals are taking notice of the absolutely electric atmosphere in Phoenix Suns Arena for the NBA playoffs as the Phoenix Suns vie for a world championship. Left tackle D.J. Humphries has experienced it, having attended one of the games.

He wants the same energy this fall at State Farm Stadium when the Cardinals play.

“I went to the Suns games and I felt that energy,” he said on SiriusXM NFL Radio with hosts Bruce Murray and Kirk Morrison. “It’s different. I’m going to be very jealous when these fans come back if our stadium doesn’t feel that same way this season.”

State Farm Stadium typically has a strong home-field advantage, especially if the Cardinals are at least competitive. It gets loud in the stadium.

Phoenix fans, though, aren’t ones just to bring it for a bad team. If the players give them just an ounce of energy and promise for being good and the fan energy is intense.

With the Cardinals gearing up for a big season, they can expect the same sort of intensity if they hold up their end of the bargain and are good.
