The Blitz with B-Train and Jurecki

  • Patrick Peterson notches first score as a Cardinal

    Patrick Peterson finally got one. With just more than two minutes remaining in the first quarter the rookie read Chargers QB Philip Rivers’ eyes, left his man and made a break on the ball. A little running and a couple of jukes later, touchdown. “It felt great because I was screaming the whole way to […]
  • Offense, Beanie Wells click for Cardinals in loss

    Now that was what the Arizona Cardinals envisioned their offense doing when they traded for Kevin Kolb. The Cardinals scored 31 points Saturday — 24 of which came courtesy of the offense — and while they ultimately lost to the San Diego Chargers, the good certainly outweighed the bad in this one. Take, for instance, […]

So it’s time to go Inside the Box for August 27, 2011: Chargers 34, Cardinals 31 The Good: Kevin Kolb showed on Saturday why the Cardinals offered him a serious contract.

  • Arizona Cardinals defense adjusting on the fly

    This offseason the Cardinals hired Ray Horton to be their defensive coordinator, but with only two preseason games left the players admit they’re still learning. “We’ve got the grit of it,” safety Kerry Rhodes told azcardinals.com’s Darren Urban. “We’ve got the base stuff, and some of the exotic stuff. But we don’t have everything in.” […]
  • Cardinals need O’Brien Schofield to step up

    The Cardinals selected O’Brien Schofield in the fourth round of the 2010 draft believing they were getting a top-notch pass rusher at a discounted rate. Roughly 19 months since tearing his ACL, the hope is the linebacker will turn into the dominant pass rusher the Cardinals need. “The two guys that had been starting there, […]
  • Defense may be Cardinals’ biggest question mark

    The Arizona Cardinals are making a lot of changes, with the most prominent being the one at quarterback. And yes, while it is tough to integrate a new signal caller — especially over the course of a truncated offseason — the most difficult transformation the team faces may be on the defensive side of the […]
  • Ken Whisenhunt realistic about his expectations against Chargers

    Ken Whisenhunt has been realistic about his expectations for the Arizona Cardinals through the first two preseason games. So much so that he really just wanted to see his club run their systems without issue. Even with the expectations so low, the team has yet to live up to them. “My expectations were that we […]
  • Cardinals would do well adding Packers’ Ryan Grant

    While the Cardinals are scrambling to find a running back in the wake of rookie Ryan Williams’ season ending knee injury, the Packers are facing the problem of having too many options on the roster. The odd man out may be veteran Ryan Grant, and Sports 620 KTAR’s John Gambadoro talked about the possibility of […]
  • Cardinals coach Whisenhunt excited for home game

    For some there is nothing sweeter than playing in front of a home crowd. The Cardinals will get that chance Saturday night in their home preseason debut against the San Diego Chargers. One person who is happy to be back at home is head coach Ken Whisenhunt. “I’m excited to get back to University of […]
  • Cardinals add Brodie Croyle to QB mix

    Down some quarterbacks, the Arizona Cardinals picked up free agent Brodie Croyle Wednesday. The question is, why? The 28-year-old Croyle was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs, and has thrown for just 1,669 passing yards and eight touchdowns during his career. Croyle spent the last two […]
  • Kevin Kolb eager to work 2-minute drill

    Kevin Kolb is looking forward to playing deep into the game this Saturday night. Kolb and the rest of the starters will probably see action into the third quarter, and the quaterback plans on using this extended playing time to his advantage. “I need to run through the 2 minute drill at least one time […]
  • Kevin Kolb, Cardinals working through ‘hiccups’

    Everyone knew it would take time. Kevin Kolb has been with the Cardinals for less than a month, and with the season opener nearly two weeks away the offense is under the gun, so to speak, to get ready as quickly as possible. And, while mistakes have been made, Kolb says the important thing is […]
  • Arizona Cardinals waive Max Hall, sign Brodie Croyle

    From undrafted rookie to starting quarterbackto the unemployment line (well, almost), thus is the tale of Max Hall. The injured 6-foot-1 BYU product was waived by the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday to make way for former Kansas City Chiefs signal caller Brodie Croyle. Being waived doesn’t necessarily mean that Hall is done with the club. […]
  • Even without Ryan Williams Cardinals rookies expected to have impact

    The Arizona Cardinals may have lost running back Ryan Williams for the year, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t rookies on the roster who fans should be excited about this season. In fact, Ken Whisnhunt is pretty enthusiastic about the team’s entire draft class and what he’s seen from them. “I’ve been very pleased with […]
  • Cardinals coach learned to keep three quarterbacks on the roster

    Ken Whisenhunt was a first-year head coach in 2007, and one of his earliest decisions was to keep just two quarterbacks on the roster during the regular season. Matt Leinart was the starter with Kurt Warner backing him up, and all seemed well as the Cardinals got off to a 3-2 start. It was in […]
