Bruce Arians' wife Christine Arians has very good reason to be proud of her husband. Bruce Arians took over as head coach for 12 games for the Indianapolis Colts after head coach Chuck Pagano was diagnosed with cancer and had to take a long leave of absence to get treatment. Pagano then miraculously went into remission, and he reassumed his spot as head coach from Arians on Christmas Eve of 2012. Not only that, but Bruce himself survived prostate cancer! That's pretty awesome if you ask me. Those are some tough coaches. Well, now Bruce is head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, and his wife is proud as can be. Though I do sort of wish they'd change the name of their stadium to anything but the University of Phoenix Stadium.
Bruce's wife Christine has been with him for quite a long time, as they had two kids in 1978 and 1980. Their son born in 1978 is named Jake, and he actually made it to the NFL and played briefly as a placekicker in 2001. Any time a coach's son makes it into the NFL, he's got to consider that a bonus right? It's hard as hell to make it to the NFL in any capacity.
Both Bruce and wife Christine recently held their second golf fundraiser, called the Georgia Celebrity Golf Classic at Reynolds Foundation. This was to support the Arians Foundation, started by Bruce and Christine in order to raise money to help kids who have suffered from child abuse. Christine herself was a lawyer for many years, and she was a special advocate to help kids who'd been through tough times. So you can see that Christine is a good person and helps Bruce himself be a better man. Bruce said he was thrilled to have the annual golf competition and to spread the message.

Not much is known about Frostee Rucker's wife Danielle Rucker other than they were married this year in Gilbert, Arizona and that she's been dating him for a good four years or so. Formerly Danielle McGraw, she apparently worked at a place called Stanley's Pub back in Cincinnati when he was on the Bengals. Now, there's a world of spiteful talk out there on the internet forums about this relationship, and we're going to ignore all of it because it all wreaks of hearsay. Suffice to say that big Ruck and Danielle are living a happy life in beautiful Arizona. Now let's take a look at what we do know about Danielle...
Piecing together information about Frostee's wife Danielle from that fountain of saved internet artifacts, Pinterest, we can see that she's paid some attention to Frostee in looking for ideas for a man cave for him. All of the obvious pictures and links are there-- humongous flat screen televisions, huge leather couches, alcohol, and one man cave that Danielle commented on had a stripper pole. She said "Who says women aren't allowed in a man cave?" Danielle is also a religious person, with emphasis on faith and prayer for her husband.
Frostee's wife Danielle also has "baby fever" on her mind, as she has labelled a section of her interests that way. I have no idea if Frostee shares the enthusiasm for a kid, but Danielle is most decidedly geared up to be a house wife. She has spent a lot of time scouting out ideas for home furnishing and even houses to live in. She's also keenly aware of Frostee's payscale, as she's bookmarked some ultra high end estates as the types of places to look out for if not own outright. From our perspective, this marriage looks like it's running just fine.

Patrick Peterson's wife Antonique Peterson grades his game performances and reviews her notes from the game with him after every contest. Patrick was quoted as saying "She's doing something great in her field, and she challenges me each and every Sunday to do well. She sends me speeches before every game, and afterward, she gives me a grade." I really dig the fact that his wife takes an active role in shaping his skills and self-awareness on the field. This is the best kind of support for those players that like to always improve. He's possibly the best cornerback in the league. At least his coach thinks so. The man knows how to pick the football out of the air.
So just what is it that Patrick Peterson's wife Antonique does in her field? She is studying to become a doctor. You gotta' love a player wife-- a woman married to a millionaire athlete-- who is making the enormous effort to become a doctor and have a serious career for herself. No time for shallow self-worship with poolside selfies here! This woman is going to help people. Antonique is from New Orleans, and the couple was married there. In a recent interview on a local Arizona ABC news station, Antonique talked about being an NFL wife with a few other wives of players on the Cardinals. Sitting beside Antonique, Mike Leach's wife started sounding like a psychological therapist or grief counselor and said: "When he walks through that door, I want this to be his safe place." This sort of worry is rational, however, as NFL players face a lot of serious injuries and head trauma.
That's why Antonique becoming a doctor is awesome! By the time Patrick's career is winding to a close, she can treat him and diagnose all of those cranial impacts. She is quoted in the interview saying "Oh wait, Patrick, I have to study. So it's not all about you any more."
