  • The 5: Most Painful Arizona Sports Moments

    As anniversaries go, June 20 marked a pretty grim one in the minds and hearts of Phoenix sports fans. On that date in 1993, a reserve guard from Notre Dame took a pass from a player who was inexplicably double-teamed and hit a three-pointer from the left wing with 3.9 seconds left.

  • The 5: Reasons why I could never root for the San Antonio Spurs

    There are certain things in this world that I just don’t do, and rooting for the Spurs is certainly in my top five.

  • The 5: Options for the Cardinals on draft day

So here are the five options with conveniently included odds intended solely for the purposes of wagering. A Guard (3 to 1) […]
  • The 5: Best top 10 picks in Cardinals history

    Draft week is upon us in the National Football League. The most talked about happening in the sports world will unfold over a three-day period in New York this weekend.

  • The 5: Worst top 10 picks in Cardinals history

    There’s no question about it. The Arizona Cardinals have a huge decision to make Thursday night when they mull over the No. 7 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Following a disappointing 5-11 season and a wholesale regime change, the Cardinals have plenty of holes to fill, and there’s no better place to start than […]
  • The 5: Best movie quarterbacks of all-time

    So with Kevin Kolb now out of the picture, the Arizona Cardinals are back to square one at the quarterback position. While Steve Keim and Co. will likely exhaust every option (draft and trade market) before training camp opens in July — and already have to some degree with the signing of Drew Stanton — […]
  • The 5: Best Cardinals of all-time

    It sounds strange to refer to Adrian Wilson as a former Cardinals safety, but after 12 seasons, he’s just that. The team and Wilson parted ways last Friday and now, like many great Cardinals before him, he’ll finish his career in another uniform. Wilson’s résumé is impressive, but it got me to thinking. Now that […]
