first_img D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Comments   Share   Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away “It’s definitely different in some ways, but in a lot of ways it’s similar,” said Acho, adding that a player has to perform better when the talent around him improves. “I started doing the NFL workouts, so even though I was going against harder competition, I felt like I became a better player.”While some rookies benefit spending a year or two behind the scenes and adjust to the speed of the pros, Acho was ready to start after Joey Porter hurt his knee against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 6. “The coaches came to me before the [next] game and told me I was going to start. That’s the point where I realized that this is what I’ve been practicing for. I believe I can do it, I know I can do it, so it’s about just going out there and proving it.” It’s no surprise that a bright spot for the Cardinals going into training camp is their defense. The unit, comprised of both veteran presence and youthful energy, helped the birds win seven of their last nine games in the 2011 season. Outside linebacker Sam Acho, a key cog in the defense, joined Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo Wednesday to talk about the experience of his rookie year and how dissimilar playing at the NFL level is from his days at the University of Texas. – / 35 Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Top Stories last_img
