O’Brien remains adamant that Savage is the best option at quarterback based on his familiarity of the offense and, true to their organizational personality, his players have echoed that sentiment. While there might be a sense of inevitability that Watson will someday supplant Savage, a change won’t come anytime soon barring the unforeseen. Savage has ample support.
I expect him to continue where he left off this preseason, Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who sat out the preseason with a thumb injury but has been cleared to start the opener.

We’ve got to get off to a good start, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. There’s no excuses about 10 a.m. (Pacific time start) and all that (nonsense). We all know the schedule. So yeah, we’ve got to get off to a good start and we’ve got to get off to a good start in those games. You don’t want to get behind on the road in a domed stadium, for sure.
Carson Palmer is back behind center, but the Cardinals’ biggest weapon is running back and fantasy football darling David Johnson. He scored a combined 20 touchdowns a year ago while rushing for 1,239 yards and catching 80 passes for an additional 879 yards.
I’ve always said, he’s the closest thing I’ve been around to Marshall Faulk, Arians said. Marshall could start at wide receiver and probably on defense as a safety or corner. They’re very smart guys. If a guy isn’t real smart, you overload him to where he can’t play fast if you put a bunch of things on his plate. Obviously, David’s very bright and it’s good to see Andre (Ellington) back healthy because he can do a lot of things like that, too.
