The Arizona Cardinals have one of the most impressive collections of skill position players in the NFL at present, so Arizona Cardinals posters tend to focus on offensive stars. Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald are premier receivers in the NFL, while Kurt Warner and Edgerrin James are not that far removed from their time as elite players at their positions.
Arizona Cardinals Posters – Anquan Boldin
Anquan Boldin was a 2nd round pick in the 2003 NFL Draft and was the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2003. Boldin caught 101 receptions that year, which is a record for a rookie wideout. Anquan Boldin played both quarterback and wide receiver in college, and he brings a physicality to the receiver position that few others at his position possess.
Anquan Boldin has several good posters on AllPosters.com. One is an action photo of him catching the ball over a Chicago Bears defender, while another has Boldin running past two Oakland Raiders d-backs. A third picture has Anquan Boldin turning upfield after a catch, almost in a sprinter’s squat while holding the ball.
University of Phoenix Stadium is the Arizona Cardinals new state-of-the-art stadium. The field cost $450 million to build and was the site of the 2007 Superbowl between the New York Giants and New England Patriots. The stadium is the first of its kind, since it is a dome with a grass field. The field slides out of the stadium, allowing the grass access to sunlight on the many sunny Arizona days. You might recognize the University of Phoenix for its omni-present internet college degree ads.
The University of Phoenix Stadium is located in Glendale, Arizona. The stadium is the focus of three photos on All Posters, including both an inside view and an outside view associated with Superbowl XLII, and an aerial view of the stadium with the word Arizona along the bottom of the poster.
Edgerrin James was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts with the 4th overall pick of the 1999 NFL Draft. At the time, Edgerrin’s selection was a bit of a surprise to many casual NFL observers, because he went one pick ahead of Ricky Williams. Edgerrin was to be the replacement for Marshall Faulk on the Colts, and he soon became one of the NFL star running backs. Two seasons ago, he left in free agency for the Arizona Cardinals, where he has struggled to produce at the same levels as with the vaunted Colts offense.
Edgerrin has five Cardinals posters on All Posters. One has Edge cutting to the left, evading a tackler. A second has Edgerrin cutting to his right while being chased by a Kansas City Chiefs defender. A third has Edgerrin James sweeping to his left, around the outstretched arms of a leaping defender. Finally, there is an Edgerrin James montage, along with a four-squared poster of four Cardinals stars: Edgerrin, Warner, Boldin and Fitzgerald.
Larry Fitzgerald was the Cardinals #1 pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. Fitzgerald had been a touchdown machine in college. Because he was drafted by former Vikings head coach Dennis Green, Fitzgerald was often compared to Cris Carter. Larry Fitzgerald has been a star for the Arizona Cardinals, teaming with Anquan Boldin to become arguably the best receiving tandem in the NFL.
Larry Fitzgerald has several action photos, including a picture of him leaping up to grab a ball with a Houston Texans defending stretching for the ball. Another photo has Fitzgerald leaping to catch a ball while a Jacksonville Jaguars safety readies to hit him when he lands. A third photo has Larry Fitzgerald running after a catch, with a defending sprawled on the ground to his left.
Kurt Warner first burst onto the NFL scene in 1999, when he led the St. Louis Rams to an unforeseen Superbowl victory. Warner would go on to be voted the NFL Most Valuable Player in 1999, and would become the NFL MVP again in 2001. The award went to Marshall Faulk in 2000, making Kurt Warner and his Great Show on Turf the undisputed masters of offense at the turn of the millenium. Warner has started for the New York Giants and Arizona Cardinals, and took over for an ineffective Matt Leinart in 2007 and put up solid totals for the Cards.
The only current Arizona Cardinals poster for Kurt Warner is a combination poster with Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin and Edgerrin James.
Matt Leinart was drafted with the Cardinals’ #1 pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. The former quarterback for the USC Trojans was expected to be the Cardinals starter for the next ten years or so. Leinart had a promising rookie season, where he put up production while making mistakes and learning the game. New Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt had less patience for Matt Leinart in 2007, when he benched Matt in lieu of Kurt Warner. Whether Leinart regains his starting job is up in the air at present.
That being said, Matt Leinart has a number of posters on All Posters. Three Matt Leinart posters having him cocking the ball, about to release it downfield. Another poster has Leinart rolling out to his right, about to make the awkward turn which will allow him to throw the ball. Another Leinart poster has him holding up a Cardinals jersey on draft day, while a montage photo includes Matt Leinart and his two favorite targets, Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin.
Neil Rackers seemed to come out of nowhere in 2006, when he led the NFL in scoring by kicking 40 field goals. In actuality, Rackers had been in the NFL since 2000. From 2000 until 2002, Neil Rackers was on the Cincinnati Bengals roster, and he joined the Arizona Cardinals in 2003. Rackers is known for his strong led. He has had two seasons with 20+ touchbacks on kickoffs, a sign of a strong leg by NFL kickers standards.
