The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories The Arizona Cardinals quarterback bucket challenge has seen its fair share of unique and in this case, groovy costumes.The loser this week was apparently quarterback Matt Barkley, who was seen wearing the same “hippie” costume former Cardinals quarterback Mike Bercovici was seen wearing in Week 9.Luckily for Barkley, he is used to the embarrassment.
