    Cardinals' championship window isn't quite closed

    At inside linebacker, Deone Bucannon pioneered the “moneybacker” position and isn’t going anywhere. Bucannon had a 55 percent success rate in coverage last season, ranking 25th among linebackers per FOA.

    Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer Close Covered the Cardinals since 2012 Graduate of Indiana University Member of Pro Football Writers of America Follow on Twitter GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The way Byron Leftwich tells it, he didn’t have much of a choice in Bruce Arians’ decision to have him call plays this preseason. Arians has said since January that Leftwich, the former 10-year NFL quarterback who’s starting his second season as the Arizona Cardinals' quarterbacks coach, will be an NFL head coach some day, an opportunity that Arians thinks may come “early and fast.” So when Arians went to Leftwich and told him he’d assume the role of playcaller against the Oakland Raiders last weekend and the Chicago
