Big fan of Arizona football? Then check out this list of Arizona Cardinals quarterbacks with photos! It includes every starting quarterback from throughout Arizona Cardinals history, including current quarterbacks and past ones.

Vigorous training is a must—and don't forget that a quarterback is only as good as his receivers.
