--Running back Beanie Wells played 10 weeks with a knee injury that likely will require surgery, but he doesn't think he has convinced critics who think that he's not tough.
"I don't know if I dispelled any," he said. "People always want to chirp. It's the way of the world. You can't please everybody, you're never gonna completely shut somebody up.
Everybody's a critic when they aren't out there doing it and playing the game you played. I've known it before, but I kind of came to the realization more this year."
--Linebacker Sam Acho, who is very religious, drew a personal foul penalty in the season finale. However, he said that even Jesus had a temper.
"Oh, yeah. Jesus, when they were messin' up the Temple, changing money in there, he was throwing tables," Acho said. "So I got no shame. No shame."
--The Cardinals will have to go on the road next season to play each of this season's top playoff seeds, Green Bay and New England. Arizona will also play at Minnesota, Atlanta and the New York Jets. Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Buffalo and Miami will all come to University of Phoenix Stadium. The Cardinals, as always, will have home-and-home series with AFC West rivals St. Louis, San Francisco and Seattle.
Cardinals Wells still has plenty of doubters
