"The Quarterback Whisper" by Lars Anderson.

The Arizona Cardinals began their 2017 NFL season with a disappointing loss to the Detroit Lions.

This is a season full of pressure for a club that was expected to be a Super Bowl contender last year and ended up not even making the playoffs.

Three of the organization’s key members may be heading toward retirement, especially if the organization were able to end the season as NFL champions.

One is quarterback Carson Palmer. Another is wide receiver and future Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald. The third is 65-year old Head Coach Bruce Arians.

Arians is considered to be quite a character in the buttoned-up NFL. He makes bold fashion choices off the field and calls bold plays on the field.

Journalist Lars Anderson wrote about Arians in the new book "The Quarterback Whisperer," and we talked with him.
