  • Beanie Wells added to injury report

    Well that’s not good. According to Darren Urban of, Beanie Wells was added to the team’s injury report Thursday, listed as “limited” due to a hamstring problem. An injury to Wells is one of the last things the Cardinals would want right now, as the third-year pro is off to a great start as […]
  • Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals look to reclaim top spot

    Each of the last seven NFC West championships have been won by either the Seattle Seahawks or Arizona Cardinals.

  • Whisenhunt says offense will continue to improve

    The solid play of running back Beanie Wells has eased the panic that surrounded the team after rookie Ryan Williams went down with a season ending injury.

  • Beanie Wells is running well, running strong

    Beanie Wells is averaging 5.7 yards per carry this season, an average that ranks sixth among NFL running backs.

  • 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

  • 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 […]

  • 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.

  • 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.
