    Lol go to their site http://www.azcardinals.com/home.php

    For those who do not know, this guy was a 3rd Round draft pick...3rd Round...and he didn't make the team.

    He's from FSU...there is no way he'll clear waivers, someone will give him a shot.

    I don't know how good he was from college, maybe someone here can inform us...but a 3rd round pick getting cut...lol it would be hilarious if he went elsewhere and eventually became a productive starter...I mean look at our 3rd rounder.

    I think that is just crazy to cut a 3rd round draft pick...what a waste of a pick.

    I remember Buster Davis coming out and never got to see him play, a lot of the draft experts were pretty high on him and felt he could be a productive starter.

    Its funny because its not like he is getting cut from the Bears or Ravens or something...but the Cardinals. This is like Michael Bush getting drafted to the Raiders in the 2nd round...and then getting cut...

    I mean you'd think they'd give the guy a shot. Its not like he's been in the league 5 years. Some guys are just slow learners. If I had a OLB spot empty and had the cap space, I'd get this guy in a second...but I am not a GM.

    What some Card's fans said about Buster performance last night...

    I'm surprise they didn't atleast give him a year to develop and see what he can do next year... guess the coaches didn't see any potential in him.

    At 5'9" 240 lbs., he may be too small for the big leagues.

    I wouldn't say that. DeMeco and him weigh about the same and Meco is a bit taller and the knock against Meco was he was too small.

    I just think it is silly to cut a 3rd round pick because of poor play. When I heard I thought maybe he had a serious injury and they cut him...found out about poor play...

    I mean not every rookie comes into camp tearing it up. Even if he was downright HORRIBLE most times its a mental hump they have to get over. Cutting him though...I mean they just threw away a 3rd round pick just like that. I doubt he'll get through Waivers and gets put onto their practice squad, I highly doubt that.

    I really like Buster Davis, but there may be a disconnect between his and the expectations of an NFL staff. I seem to recall him being continuously dawged on by Singletary at one of the pre draft events.

    I'm not saying the guy, a 3rd round pick, doesn't deserve a solid look by drafting team, but I wouldn't say that a 5 inch height difference is a small difference for an LB, especially in a cross pattern coverage. (DeMeco 6'2").

    not just short, but slow, has bad instincts and is scared to tackle, apparently. perhaps he took for granted his 3rd round draft status and didn't try. wouldn't want that kinda guy on my team no matter how ya slice it.

    It seems like the Cardinals love to draft big names and follow Mel Kiper's big board all the time.

    It's what I heard.

    http://www.news-journalonline.com/NewsJournalOnline/Sports/Headlines/sptNFL01090407.htm

    I don't know if it's true or not. it's looking more like not, since he still isn't on the list. Sounds like he had an attitude problem and the Cards podcast said there were reasons other than performance that got him cut. If that's the case, other teams are less likely to take a chance on a guy who showed little to nothing in preseason.
