The Blitz with B-Train and Jurecki

  • Cardinals finally figuring out their own defense

    The defense hasn’t been completely dismal in defensive coordinator Ray Horton’s first season, but small mistakes here and there helped add up to six consecutive losses. That, however, seems to be changing, with the Cardinals rolling off two straight wins, both of which the defense played a key role. Against the Rams, the Cardinals forced […]
  • Sunday could be an ‘audition’ for Skelton

    This so-called quarterback controversy for the Arizona Cardinals won’t go away. And while it’s not as widespread as say, Team Edward vs. Team Jacob, the Kolb vs. Skelton argument has been an intriguing one in the Valley for the last three weeks. Let me lay my cards on the table: I’m a Kolb guy. Okay, […]
  • Skelton preparing differently with starter title

    Being named the started clearly had an impact on Arizona Cardinals backup quarterback John Skelton, who has won two straight games under the center. But what is he doing differently to prepare as a starter? “It’s a lot more involved,” Skelton said on Arizona Sports 620’s Big Red Rage show Thursday. “You try tell yourself […]
  • Skelton continues to impress ESPN’s Ron Jaworski

    The Cardinals may not have a QB controversy, but they certainly have something to think about. “When you see a guy in only his second year and the inexperience that John has,” ESPN’s Ron Jaworski told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo, “to make some of the plays he made – tremendous.” Jaworski, who said […]
  • Frustrated by injury, Kolb is nearing return

    Kevin Kolb is tired of being injured. He’s tired of being unable to practice with his team and wants to get back on the field. “I didn’t expect to take this long,” he said of the recovery. “My injuries have either been a broken bone or the concussion, which is pretty straightforward on the recovery […]
  • Jake Plummer reflects on Pat Tillman

    Former Sun Devil and Cardinals quarterback Jake Plummer spent a lot of time playing football with the late Pat Tillman, but it is the memories and lessons off the field that make Plummer think back to his close friend. Plummer shared his thoughts on Tillman with Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf. “I think about […]
  • Jake Plummer got tired of the NFL, content with new life

    Jake Plummer had a 10-year NFL career, one that saw him experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. As a Cardinal, Plummer guided the team to the playoffs in 1998, the team’s first postseason birth since moving to the desert. His career with the Cardinals lasted another four years, but he did […]
  • Rookie Sam Acho grasps new scheme, sees results

    Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton’s new scheme is known as complicated and difficult to learn. Lucky for rookie linebacker Sam Acho, he is probably one of the smartest players on the team. The fourth-round draft pick out of University of Texas holds a business honors major as well a marketing major. Needless to say, […]
  • Cardinals look to end struggles against 49ers

    The Cardinals have won two games in a row but the past four games against the San Fransisco 49ers have resulted in a loss. “They’ve had success against us the last couple of years and that’s hard with your pride,” head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “There is no question that our guys want to go […]
  • Kolb knew what was coming from Eagles

    Kevin Kolb didn’t get to make his return to Philadelphia on the field. The former Eagles quarterback was in street clothes during Arizona’s 21-17 win over the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. But that doesn’t mean Kolb didn’t have an effect on the game. NFL teams often rely on former players from the teams that […]
  • Fitzgerald named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 10. Fitzgerald caught 7 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns in the Cardinals’ 21-17 win over Philadelphia that snapped the team’s 11-game road losing streak. The biggest play in that win for Fitzgerald, however, was a 37-yard, […]
  • John Skelton nominated for NFL award

    Apparently leading a fourth quarter comeback gets you noticed around the league. Cardinals QB John Skelton, who threw the game-winning touchdown pass to Early Doucet with less than two minutes remaining in Sunday’s 21-17 win over the Eagles, has been nominated for the GMC “Never Say Never Moment of the Week.” The award is given […]
  • Ken Whisenhunt: Cardinals coach, ruiner of QBs?

    Ken Whisenhunt has had six different starting quarterbacks over his five years as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. Of a group including Matt Leinart, Kurt Warner, Derek Anderson, Max Hall, John Skelton and Kevin Kolb, only Warner could be considered a good passer. Is that a sign Coach Whiz is a poor judge of […]
  • Whisenhunt: No controversy at quarterback

    During his weekly segment with Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf, Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt addressed the brewing controversy at the quarterback position. “Right now, nothing has changed,” Whisenhunt said. “Until Kevin is cleared, until we can assess where he is physically, we’re going to continue as we are. So there is no controversy.” […]
  • Larry Fitzgerald still able to impress Whisenhunt

    Heading into Sunday’s matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, Larry Fitzgerald had 38 catches, 646 yards and three touchdown catches. Pedestrian-like numbers for the future hall of famer. But the lack of production was never blamed on anything Fitzgerald was doing or not doing; fans knew he was ready to break out any game. The Eagles […]
