Cardinals | Tyrann Mathieu staying confident

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 15:45:47 -0700

Arizona Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu has believed in himself even when the critics were seemingly overwhelming. "He thinks he can do anything," LB Kevin Minter said. "He thinks he can beat everybody up. Hit everybody. He's that guy. He will come at you, and that's the mentality he brings to the field." Minter said that mentality encourages the team and gives them a contagious confidence. Head coach Bruce Arians is happy with his decision to give the confident Mathieu a second chance following off-field issues. "I get the most pleasure out of him," Arians said, "seeing him get his second chance and what he's done with it."
