The Blitz with B-Train and Jurecki

  • Horton will help, but players make the difference

    Ray Horton is not Bill Davis, and that might be a good thing. Not to knock Davis, the Cardinals’ defensive coordinator the last two seasons, but Arizona rarely stopped anyone during his tenure. “The Arizona Cardinals, last year, we all were privy to it, we were witness of their futility,” Sports 620 KTAR’s Ron Wolfley […]
  • Cardinals rookie Sherman passing the test in training camp

    When the Arizona Cardinals selected fullback Anthony Sherman in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft they got themselves a true fullback who likes to hit people. Sherman has done plenty of that in camp and, as he told Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf, he expected pretty much everything that’s been thrown at […]
  • Cam Newton could open NFL career against Cardinals

    He ended his college career here, so it’s a perfect place to start his professional career. Number one overall draft pick Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers open their season against the Arizona Cardinals at the University of Phoenix Stadium on September 11. If the analysts have anything to say about it, Newton will make […]
  • Fitzgerald says Kolb can take team ‘where we all want to go’

    Larry Fitzgerald has not been shy about praising the guy who will be throwing him the ball this season. Whether it’s his accuracy, leadership or the fact that he has worked hard to learn the offense in a limited amount of time, you get the sense that if Kolb tells people he puts his heart […]
  • Fitzgerald says Cardinals have makings of a ‘special backfield’

    The Cardinals’ running game hasn’t been anything worth writing home about since the team moved to the desert, but that could change this season. Arizona enters the season with Beanie Wells, Ryan Williams and LaRod Stephens-Howling atop the depth chart, each bringing a different skill to the table. Combined, Larry Fitzgerald thinks the group will […]
  • Larry Fitzgerald reiterates desire to stay in Arizona

    The question will linger until he either signs a contract extension or leaves the Valley, but once again Larry Fitzgerald confirmed that the Arizona Cardinals are his first choice with regards to where he will be playing football next season. “That’s been my desire from day one, the time I got a chance to meet […]
  • Good training camp does not guarantee success for Cardinals

    All things considered, the Arizona Cardinals are having a good training camp. Since the team’s first practice on July 30th up until now, the team has had to integrate new players, learn a new scheme on defense, all while preparing for games. Oh, and they didn’t have new acquisitions for the first few days of […]
  • Kevin Kolb can run, even if nobody wants him to

    Kevin Kolb dropped back to pass, saw the pressure and took off running. Fifteen yards later, the new Cards QB had the team’s first first down of the preseason. Kolb ran again three plays later, showing an aspect of his game many didn’t realize he had. “I ran the ball quite a bit in college,” […]
  • Kolb was good, but ‘don’t build a church’ yet

    In camp for a couple weeks, nary a bad word has been said about Kevin Kolb. Add in a successful preseason debut, one in which he completed 4 of 7 passes for 68 yards, the praise has continued to flow. “It’s one preseason game,” Sports 620 KTAR’s Ron Wolfley said on the Doug and Wolf […]
  • Cardinals readying Kevin Kolb for Week 1

    At the very least, Kevin Kolb looked like an NFL quarterback in the preseason opener last Thursday. Completing 4 of 7 passes for 68 yards, Kolb found Larry Fitzgerald often enough to make you think he’s getting the hang of the offense. Still, there is a lot of work ahead of the signal caller if […]
  • ESPN Insider: Kolb is throwing the ball better than he ever has

    The thoughts from the national media on Kevin Kolb have been mixed at best since the Cardinals acquired the young quarterback. One guy who has been in his corner from the beginning is ESPN NFL Insider John Clayton. After watching Arizona practice on Sunday, his opinion on Arizona’s new signal caller hasn’t changed. It’s become […]
  • Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton showing promise

    Last football season was ugly and the Arizona Cardinals’ disastrous quarterback situation was to blame. There, I said it. But this year things are turning around with the acquisition of former Philadelphia Eagle Kevin Kolb and a decent backup being developed in John Skelton. Yes, the same Skelton who went 60-for-126 and just two touchdowns […]
  • Cardinals O-line has ups and downs in preseason opener

    Things didn’t start so well for the offensive line. Kevin Kolb was forced to scramble a couple times and there wasn’t much room for Beanie Wells to run. “We had too many mental mistakes with our starting offensive line,” Cardinals Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “But as far as protection went I thought they did […]
  • Cardinals backs off and running

    Beanie Wells got the start in Thursday night’s preseason opener and, well, let’s just say he had a solid, if unspectacular night. Wells tallied 22 yards on six carries, including a nice 15-yard run, but failed to score on four tries from the Raiders’ eight yard line. But, as is typical of the preseason, stats […]
  • Whisenhunt saw positives in preseason opener

    The final score really doesn’t matter. Sure, the Cardinals beat the Raiders 24-18 in the preseason opener Thursday night, but because it was just that — preseason — coming out with a win wasn’t the top objective. No, the Cardinals wanted to execute their assignments and come away healthy and, save for Todd Heap’s sprained […]
