TEMPE, Ariz. -- Bruce Arians is a hard man to please.His Arizona Cardinals rolled for 416 yards and accounted for 33 points in a 40-7 rout of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and still he wasnt happy.Because we should have had 50, you know, the coach said in his Monday news conference.We left 100, 120 yards and two touchdowns just on mental errors by David Johnson.No matter that Johnson accounted for 143 yards -- 45 rushing and 98 receiving, 58 on one play.The score doesnt indicate how poorly we played offensively, Arians said. We can get a hell of a lot better.Johnson acknowledged his mistakes.My bonehead plays, he said. They are plays that I know what I was doing, I just didnt do it. Theyre easy reads and easy routes.The dynamic second-year running back joins a long list of prominent Cardinals to be called out publicly by his coach.Its good motivation, Johnson said. Its good that he keeps us grounded. He keeps level-headed and lets us know, especially me, that I have some work to do.Arians was pleased that his team scored two touchdowns late in the first half to blow open a 24-0 lead.Carson Palmers 51-yard touchdown throw to Jaron Brown with 20 seconds left in the half wasnt planned. The Cardinals were trying to get into field-goal range.They gave us a coverage where Jaron had a chance to go over the top of the safety ... Carson saw it immediately and put a perfect ball out there, Arians said.We really had Smoke (John Brown) working the middle of the field and Larry (Fitzgerald) coming in on a dig, to get 20 yards. We just found the right spot. Dont ever play scared, play smart.Arians criticism aside, the Cardinals did rebound decisively from a season-opening home loss to New England.The coach gave game balls to safety Tony Jefferson and cornerback Marcus Cooper. Nobody on offense got one.Jefferson matched his career high with 11 tackles. He had two tackles for loss, a quarterback hit and a fumble recovery.Cooper, acquired in a trade with Kansas City on Sept. 2, intercepted two of Jameis Winstons passes, returning the second one 60 yards for a score.Calais Campbell also earned praise from Arians, something that doesnt happen often, as well as the rest of the defensive line.Really all of them, Arians said. Ed Stinson played well. The entire group, as a group, was one of their better games. I thought we got a really good 20-something snaps out of Xavier (Williams). Josh Mauro had a great game with the tip for the interception.Chandler Jones, who came from New England to bolster Arizonas pass rush, got his second sack in as many games. Arians wasnt impressed.Id like to see him get one in the second or third quarter when it counts, he said, more than when youve got a 30-point lead.Now the Cardinals (1-1) head across the country to Buffalo (0-2) for their first road game.Youve got to respect your opponent every week, Arians said. Buffalos got a ton of talent. Dont get caught up in the coaching stuff (the firing of the Bills offensive coordinator). You just watch the film. Theres enough up there to scare you.Game notes Arians said there were no injuries in Sundays game that will cause anyone to miss any playing time. ... The Cardinals have seven takeaways in two games and have yet to commit a turnover. ...

To the surprise of many, it isnt the Wolverines but their in-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans. RIO DE JANEIRO -- The Brazilian soccer confederation has lost five major sponsors in the last 18 months as its president -- and the previous two presidents -- has been indicted on corruption charges.The latest to bail out is Samsung, which joins Michelin and Gillette as major sponsors abandoning the CBF, whose president Marco Polo del Nero is wanted by U.S. prosecutors on racketeering, fraud and other charges.The CBF confirmed Samsungs exit, but declined other comment. The CBFs website shows it has 10 sponsors remaining, including Nike, Chevrolet and MasterCard.Reports in Brazil say Samsung may have to pay $20 million to get out of the deal. The South Korean company has been buffeted by recent financial losses related to its Galaxy Note 7 phone.The shaving brand Gillette, owned by Proctor & Gamble, left 11 months ago and told the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo at the time that it is committed to sound ethics and seeks partners who correspond with our values.Erich Beting, the owner of Brazilian sports marketing company Maquina do Esporte, said Brazils economic crisis is also playing a role in the exits. He said sponsors overpaid in the run-up to Brazils 2014 World Cup.The amounts CBF was getting were very high, mainly because of the tournament being played here, Beting told The Associated Press. Brazils economy crisis is making companies rethink their investments.The CBFs website shows income from sponsorships soared in the run-up to the 2014 World Cup.Sponsorship income for 2012 was 235 million reals (now $70 million), and reached 359 million reals ($107 million) in 2014 -- a 50 percent increase.It fell to 339 million reals ($101 million) in 2015, the last year for which the CBF provided data.Sponsorship income was expected to be much lower in 2016 as Brazils faces its deepest recession in decades with inflation and unemploymeent each over 10 percent.ddddddddddddReports of corruption at the CBF are decades-old, but came into focus when high-ranking soccer officials were arrested in Switzerland in May 2015 in raids at a five-star hotel. They included Jose Maria Marin, the former president of the CBF who was extradited to the United States and awaits trial on corruption charges.Marin, who is out on a $15 million bond, is under house arrest in a luxury New York apartment. A trial date has been set for November 2017.Marins predecessor, Ricardo Teixeira, and current CBF president Del Nero, have both been indicted by U.S. officials but have not been extradited.Brazil has an extradition treaty with the United States, but seldom extradites its own nationals. However, legal authorities in Brazil are reported to be cooperating with their American counterparts in pursuing Del Nero and Teixeira.Del Nero is reported not to have traveled outside Brazil since he fled Zurich, Switzerland, in the wake of the FIFA raid, and seems unlikely to attend the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where Brazil will be a favorite.Del Nero has acknowledged he earns about 200,000 reals monthly ($60,000), which the Sao Paulo lawyer has described as too little.The Sao Paulo newspaper Estadao also reported last year that members of the Brazilian national team have been selected by sponsors -- rather than the coach -- that want only the most marketable players picked.The CBF denied the allegations.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: http://twitter.com/StephenWadeAP .
