  • Patrick Peterson is the league’s best returner

    Patrick Peterson has returned 19 punts this season, picking up 414 yards and three touchdowns. Two of those touchdowns have won games for the Cardinals, and his average of 21.8 yards per return easily leads the league. So maybe it should be no surprise that the Cardinals rookie is garnering recognition, including being named as […]
  • Cardinals still hampered by injuries

    Even though the Cardinals won Sunday, the team shouldn’t celebrate for long. Moving forward the team has to deal with a number of key injuries to important players. Kevin Kolb is battling turf toe and his status for this Sunday is still up in the air. “Sounds cliché but we just got to see how […]
  • The Cardinals are bad, but are they the worst?

    You’ll be hard pressed to find anyone who argues that the Arizona Cardinals are a good football team, but at 2-6 are they really the worst the NFC has to offer? NBCSports.com’s Evan Silva thinks so, and he predicts the team to win just one more time this season. On the bright side, Silva notes, […]
  • Kolb for DRC: It’s a wash

    Sunday’s game between the Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field will mark the first time the two teams have met since the NFC Championship Game following the 2008 season. It will also be the first time Cardinals’ quarterback Kevin Kolb and Eagles’ defensive back Dominique Rodgers- Cromartie will line up against their […]
  • Cards’ hard work and preparation pays off

    During a six game losing streak it can be easy to lose faith in a team philosophy, but Sunday’s 19-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams showed that Cardinals players have not abandoned hope on the the season. “We’ve got so many young guys that are trying to do it the right way and when […]
  • Things don’t get any easier as Cardinals prepare for Eagles

    Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Sunday’s 19-13 win over the Rams will do a lot to lift the team’s spirits and get them to believe in what they’re doing. It’s a good thing they feel better about themselves, because next week’s opponent is just a little better than the one the team just beat. […]
  • Cardinals get the win but have much to work on

    After six long weeks — seven if you include the bye week — the Cardinals finally picked up their second win Sunday against the Rams. The team did it in dramatic fashion no less, thanks to a Patrick Peterson 99-yard punt return for a touchdown in overtime to seal the 19-13 victory. Head coach Ken […]
  • Paulie Pigskin’s Sideline Notebook: Cards beat Rams

    As I flip thru my Paulie Pigskin Official Sideline Reporter Notebook, here’s a Sawed Off Shotgun of Scribblings… When you hear Adrian Wilson shout on the sideline: “…He got his five, he got his five…” AW is reacting to a Patrick Peterson punt return. As for “P-Twice,” when he says “gimme five,” like he did […]
  • Peterson a rare weapon indeed

    Patrick Peterson’s 99-yard punt return in overtime that lifted the Cardinals to a 19-13 win took the football world by storm. It was the 2nd-longest punt return in league history, the 2nd overtime punt return for a touchdown in NFL annals, and Peterson became the first player in team history with three punt return scores […]
  • Special teams very special in Cards’ win

    I defy you to listen to any football coach following a game at any level, in victory or defeat, not mention the three phases of a football game. Offense, defense and special teams. If you fail in one of those three phases, your chances of winning are reduced considerably. However, if you excel in any […]
  • Consecutive possessions result in safeties for Cardinals

    GLENDALE, Ariz. — While talk of one of the most memorable plays anyone has ever seen will be the 99-yard game winning punt return by Patrick Peterson, it cannot be forgotten that earlier in the game the Cardinals’ offense had a very rare and odd sequence of possessions. In the middle of the third quarter, […]
  • Cardinals defense bends but never breaks

    GLENDALE, Ariz. — To put it simply, the Arizona Cardinals defense did a lot of bending but never broke in their 19-13 overtime win against the St. Louis Rams. On paper the Cardinals defense had a rough day. Between the lines — where it counts — the Cardinals defense was strong and resilient. “I can’t […]
  • Patrick Peterson: Sunday’s star, rising star

    Most teams would not want to see their punt returner field a kick at the one yard line. Don’t fair catch it and certainly don’t try to return it. Then again, most teams don’t have Patrick Peterson. “You know, if you had asked me that eight weeks ago I would have said probably not,” Cardinals […]

  • It’s ‘night and day’ for John Skelton

    As the Cardinals prepare to welcome the 1-6 Rams to Glendale, it’s beginning to become clear who the starting quarterback will be: John Skelton. Starting QB Kevin Kolb suffered a turf toe injury in the loss to the Ravens and is listed as doubtful for Sunday after not practicing all week. Even though no official […]

  • Behind Enemy Lines – Rams head to Arizona

    Be honest. Even though the Cardinals had limped to a 1-5 start, you still had this Sunday’s game with the St. Louis Rams circled on your pocket schedule as a win. After all, the Rams were winless, hapless and clueless. There’s no way the Cardinals would lose a home game to the Lambs, right? Then […]
  • Skelton looking forward to gaining more experience

    It sounds like Arizona Cardinals backup quarterback John Skelton is getting the start on Sunday. “Anytime you get NFL experience, it’s always valuable in the end,” Skelton said. “The four games I got last year, all they can do is prepare me for this year and it’s my first start of the year, but I […]
  • Ken Whisenhunt: John Skelton is a ready replacement for Kevin Kolb

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb may be battling a turf toe injury, but head coach Ken Whisenhunt has confidence in backup John Skelton should he need to start on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. “Last year, he didn’t have any reps, hardly, in preseason and he didn’t do anything during the season and then […]
  • QB controversy brewing with Cardinals?

    Kevin Kolb has struggled so far as the starting quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals. The team has a 1-6 record and Kolb’s 77.8 quarterback rating ranks 24th in the league. And to top it off, Kolb suffered a turf toe injury early in last Sunday’s loss to Baltimore and has yet to practice this week. […]
