Welcome back Karlos

Did Karlos Dansby see this (home) coming?

"I'm coming back out and they're going to see how much I've advanced."

That's what Dansby said during a conference call with AZ reporters in the week leading up to the Cards game against the Dolphins last season. At the time, it was a game matching up Dansby's current team against his former team.

Effective Friday, the Cardinals are Dansby's current team -- again.

And again, he'll be counted on to be a playmaker at inside linebacker, especially in the absence of Daryl Washington. By the way, that begets another former/current scenario. This time, we're talking about the last two guys to wear #58 -- Dansby and D-Wash.

"He's a dynamic player, what more can I say about him?" Dansby said last September, before going on to do just that about Washington. "He's a young guy, very athletic, very fast. He reminds me of myself, man, making a lot of plays, he helps the defense get set."

In fact, whether it's Dansby replacing Washington at LB (each had 134 tackles last season) or Dansby replacing some of the leadership lost with the absence of Adrian Wilson and Paris Lenon, Karlos had another telling comment last fall about Washington that he hopes rings true about himself when he said: "…they did a great job of getting a guy to fill those voids."

They just might call that coming full-circle.

About the Author

School: California

When you started with Bonneville Phoenix: KTAR/KMVP = 1998

Favorite sports memory: Phoenix Open 1997 - Sitting under the ropes at the 16th green and watching Tiger Woods tee off with a 9-iron. 152 yards and two bounces later...the hole-in-one results in an unmatched moment of bedlam and pandemonium. I'm still suffering from partial hearing loss.

Favorite all-time athlete: Barry Sanders. How can a guy my size make the rest of the NFL look so helpless and hapless? No such thing as an open-field tackle of Barry Sanders, not unless it's a gang tackle.

Favorite sports movies: Rocky - "He doesn't know it's a damn show. He thinks it's a damn fight!"

Gone in 60 Seconds - The Shelby Mustang has great measurables and is elusive in open field!
