Cardinals coach Bruce Arians admits he’s cocky, and the filter between his mind and his mouth has always been endearingly thin. But Arians isn’t happy that part of his message to players last Sunday was aired by the FOX Network on its postgame show. The Cardinals had just beaten the Giants 23-0, and Arians immediately began preparing his team for Sunday’s game at Seattle, where the Cardinals won three of the last four games. “We know that’s our home field,” Arians told his players. “We’re going up there and kick their asses.” Those comments were meant only for the ears in the Cardinals' locker room on Sunday, but they were heard in Seattle, too. “Things that you say to your team in your locker room are supposed to be in your locker room,” Arians said on Wednesday. “But it got out. I said it, so … we have won three times in a row up there.” Not quite, but close. The Cardinals' lone loss in Seattle under Arians came in 2014, a game in which Drew Stanton started at quarterback in place of Carson Palmer, who was injured.
Cardinals, Seahawks are at odd place in their relationship
