  • 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. […]
  • Should Andrew Luck be the choice IF the Cardinals get top pick?

    With the Arizona Cardinals at 1-6 and losers of six straight, you almost have to mention the possibility that the team that could end up with the No. 1 overall pick come next April. Under the assumption Andrew Luck puts his name in the draft, he’ll be the favorite to be taken with that selection. […]
  • Skelton’s experience would help him Sunday

    The first time John Skelton saw action in a regular season NFL game was at University of Phoenix Stadium against the St. Louis Rams. A fifth-round pick out of Fordham, the rookie entered the game when both Derek Anderson and Max Hall went down with injuries. Skelton completed three of six passes for 45 yards […]
  • Kolb doesn’t practice, but making progress

    Despite missing practice on Wednesday, the report from Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt is that Kevin Kolb continues to make progress on his turf-toe injury. Kolb injured the toe on Sunday playing against the Baltimore Ravens. “He’s come a long way in two days,” Whisenhunt said.” “I mean that thing was swollen and black and […]
  • Familiarity will help Skelton if called upon

    With Kevin Kolb still battling turf-toe and sitting out of practice, the likelihood of backup John Skelton starting on Sunday seems to be growing. If that is the case for the Cardinals, they will at least bring in a backup who already has some experience within the offensive system. “He played well for us down […]
  • What if Skelton plays and outshines Kolb?

    When the Cardinals traded away a starting cornerback and a second round pick for Kevin Kolb, the days of the backup quarterback being the most popular player on the team were supposed to be over. But a turf-toe injury has prevented Kevin Kolb from practicing, and the QB may find himself watching the game from […]
  • Cardinals dealing with plenty of injuries

    Getting dinged up over the course of a grueling season is just something that comes with being an NFL player. The Arizona Cardinals are preparing to play the St. Louis Rams Sunday, but could take the field without their starting quarterback, running back and tight end. Kevin Kolb is fighting a turf toe injury, Beanie […]
  • In ranking QBs, Kevin Kolb is near the bottom

    Kevin Kolb has completed 129 of 227 passes for 1,706 yards with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions in his first seven games as a Cardinal, numbers that don’t exactly put him among the NFL’s elite. However, in a season that has been highlighted by incredible offensive displays and quality QB play, Kolb’s struggles put him […]
  • Are the Cardinals worse than last year?

    ArizonaSports.com’s very own Mark Asher penned a column today that pointed out the things that he now knows about the 2011 NFL season. The first item was this: The AZ Cardinals are a worse football team this year than they were last year. I got to thinking…is he right? Certainly we can point at the […]
