  • Run or pass, Cardinals just need to move the chains

    Ken Whisenhunt and the Cardinals are taking some heat this week for avoiding the running game in Sunday’s loss to Washington. The Cardinals ran the ball just three times in the first half — and 15 for the game — in losing 22-21. To make matters worse, the Cardinals ran the ball just one time […]
  • Cardinals suffering under new defensive system

    PHOENIX – NFL teams didn’t have the benefit of mini-camps and OTA’s this offseason due to the lockout leaving teams scrambling to pick up new systems when training camps opened in September. The Arizona Cardinals are struggling mightily on defense adjusting to Ray Horton’s new system. After two games, Arizona’s defense is ranked 29th in […]
  • Cardinals are ‘good enough’ to win a bad enough division

    Two games into the NFL season, the NFC West is a combined 2-6, a record that would likely be worse had the Seahawks and 49ers not played each other in Week 1. In fact, the division is so bad — once again — that mediocrity may take the crown, and while many thought the Rams […]
  • Is Darnell Dockett doggin’ it with his new deal?

    Doug Franz of Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf show doesn’t think that Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett has played up to his potential since he signed a contract extension in 2010. “I think that ever since Darnell Dockett signed his contract he’s become average,” said Franz. Average is not a word you associate […]
  • Cardinals need to fix their struggling defense

    The Arizona Cardinals defense has looked less than inspiring in the first two weeks of the season. Arizona has given up more than 300 yards passing in each of the first two games and even the run defense, which was a bright spot in Week 1, was exploited by the Redskins Sunday. The Cardinals are […]
  • Cardinals ran the ball well when they actually ran the ball

    The Arizona Cardinals averaged 6.2 yards per carry Sunday, nearly one-and-a-half yards per carry better than their opponent. However, the Washington Redskins picked up 172 yards on 35 carries, whereas the Cardinals tallied just 93 on 15. And of those 15 just three came in the first half, helping the Cards head into the intermission […]
  • Former Cardinal Hightower knew who to provoke

    After seemingly moving the ball at will, the Washington Redskins saw their first drive of the game stall at the Cardinals’ 20 when Rex Grossman threw incomplete to Santana Moss. Or not. There was some pushing and shoving after the play, enough to draw a 15-yard personal foul penalty on Cardinal Kerry Rhodes. The man […]

  • DC Ray Horton knows patience is key

    Cardinals new Defensive Coordinator Ray Horton is less than one week removed from his first NFL game as a defensive coordinator and he’s trying to remember that his two starting cornerbacks are new to this too. “The important thing I have to remember is that my two starting corners, this will be their second start […]
  • Second year DT Dan Williams progressing for Cardinals

    The one bright spot about the Cardinals defense against the Panthers, if you could pick a bright spot, was how they fared against the run. They kept the dual threat attack of DeAngelo Williams and Johnathan Stewart in check, holding them to only 56 combined yards rushing. “We played well against the run last week,” […]

  • East coast has not been kind to the Cardinals

    The Arizona Cardinals travel to the nation’s capital Sunday to face the Redskins, but there’s one obstacle the team must overcome if it’s expecting to leave with a win. The east coast. Including the 2008 season the Cardinals have gone 5-9 when playing back east, a stretch including some blowout losses, including what is probably […]
  • Behind Enemy Lines: What the Redskins are saying

    The Cardinals are heading to the nation’s capital to take on the Redskins in a game featuring a pair of undefeated teams. Sure, they’re both just 1-0, but undefeated is undefeated. Saturday, September 17, 2011 • Redskins’ defensive line showing growth in many ways The Washington Redskins defense won’t put up the same numbers they […]
  • Rex Grossman brings up old memories for Cardinals

    The last time Rex Grossman played the Arizona Cardinals a famous quote was born. “They are who we thought they were.” That came from the result of a 20-point halftime lead blown by Dennis Green’s Cardinals to the visiting Chicago Bears back in 2006. Everyone will remember that night for Green’s reaction in the post-game […]
  • Cardinals defense going through somewhat-expected struggles

    The Arizona Cardinals defense has been attacked quite a bit this week by both fans and media alike, and if last week is any indication they’ll be hard pressed to stop the assault. Harsh? Perhaps, but surrendering 477 yards of offense to a team led by a rookie QB will do that to you. However, […]
  • Former Redskin Holliday returns to Washington

    There’s already been one guarantee made. There won’t be a second — at least, not made by the other player in the trade. “I don’t do that. I’m glad he gave us that bulletin board material,” Vonnie Holliday said, referring to Tim Hightower’s ‘we’re going to win this game’ statement earlier in the week. Holliday […]
  • ESPN Insider says Cardinals have most stable QB situation in NFC West

    The NFC West is not exactly a division loaded with top-flight QBs, though it was generally thought that the Rams’ Sam Bradford was the best of the bunch. However, after a week where the second year pro completed just 17 of 30 passes for 188 yards and zero touchdowns it seems as if the gap […]
  • Cardinals give former Rams wideout Avery a look

    The Cardinals’ passing game wasn’t lacking explosiveness in the season opener, but that doesn’t mean the team is 100 percent content with its group of receivers. According to Aaron Wilson of, the team tried out former Ram Donnie Avery Wednesday. A 5-foot-11 speedster, Avery has tallied 100 catches for 1,263 yards and eight touchdowns […]
  • Beanie Wells, Tim Hightower to be reunited Sunday

    They were competitors on the field but good friends off and Sunday they will be on the same field — on opposite sidelines. Beanie Wells and Tim Hightower shared the same Cardinals backfield until Hightower was traded to the Redskins, Arizona’s opponent this week, on August 1. For two seasons, Wells was the backup, never […]
  • The ‘Hyphen’ is hurting for the Cardinals

    He may be the smallest player on the roster, but his contributions are anything but. Standing 5-foot, 7-inches tall, LaRod Stephens-Howling is the Cardinals’ kickoff-return specialist and currently the number-two running back behind Beanie Wells. However, he did neither during practice Wednesday. Stephens-Howling joined tight end Jim Dray and linebackers Joey Porter and Daryl Washington […]
