  • Behind Enemy Lines – Pittsburgh coming to Glendale

    After their bye week, the Arizona Cardinals sit at 1-4, three and a half games behind the surprising San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West standings. In other words, there’s work to be done for the Cardinals to climb back into contention, and that work starts this week as the defending AFC Champion Pittsburgh Steelers […]
  • Fitzgerald: Blame the players, not Whisenhunt

    With Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt rumored to be on the hot seat, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald stepped in to say that fans should be blaming the players, not the coach. “There’s nothing wrong with what he’s teaching,” Fitzgerald said Thursday on Arizona Sports 620’s Big Red Rage. “It’s the same concepts that he […]
  • Playoffs? No, we’re not talking about playoffs for the Cardinals

    At 1-4 the Arizona Cardinals chances of reaching the NFL playoffs are, shall we say, slim. Already chasing the 5-1 San Francisco 49ers, Arizona’s chances of turning the season around and climbing back into the race take a hit because their next two opponents are the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens. Tough as it may […]
  • Big Ben a hard man to bring down

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has run for only 52 yards this season. There’s eleven NFL quarterbacks who have amassed more yardage with their legs than he has. Roethlisberger has also been sacked 18 times in six games- – the 3rd highest total in the league this year. Despite those figures, Roethlisberger is still one […]
  • So you’re saying the Cardinals have a chance against the Steelers

    The Pittsburgh Steelers are 4-2, the Arizona Cardinals 1- 4. The visitors come into the game 3.5 point favorites, with most expecting the Cardinals’ losing streak to continue. But maybe not. “They absolutely have a chance,” ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo. Jaworski said the tricky thing is predicting […]
  • ESPN analyst says Cardinals need to form their own identity

    The idea of turning the Arizona Cardinals into Pittsburgh West has been around ever since the team hired Ken Whisenhunt to be head coach. Whether it was putting them on the coaching staff or signing some in free agency, the Cardinals sideline is littered with former Steelers. ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski, as a guest […]
  • Is Whiz on the hot seat?

    How long does the goodwill of taking a historically bad franchise to within 157 seconds of winning a championship last? That seems to be the question a lot of people are asking when it comes to the job security of Arizona Cardinals’ head coach Ken Whisenhunt. As the Cardinals prepare for a visit from the […]
  • Super Bowl rematch? Not quite

    What’s the first thing that goes through your mind when you think of the Pittsburgh Steelers playing the Arizona Cardinals? If you’re a Cardinals fan, you’ll undoubtedly be besieged by images of Steeler receiver Santonio Holmes tip-toeing in the corner of the end zone in front of three helpless Cardinal defenders for Pittsburgh’s game-winning touchdown […]
  • Kolb: ‘We’re all seeing it more and more clearly’

    They are not the best. They are not the worst. They are average, literally. The Cardinals passing attack through the first six weeks of the season ranks 16th out of 32 teams in yards (237.2) per game. That though—at least according to quarterback Kevin Kolb, is about to change. “Our last three or four practices […]
  • Cardinals struggles on D not due to lack of blitzing

    When Ray Horton took over as defensive coordinator he promised to bring pressure on a consistent basis. While the defense as a whole has been largely ineffective, Horton himself has kept to his word. According to Mike Sando’s ESPN NFC West Blog, the Cardinals get sacks twice as frequently when sending five or more rushers, […]
  • Pittsburgh West? Many Cardinals have Steelers ties

    The Pittsburgh Steelers are a familiar team to many on the Arizona Cardinals staff. The Cardinals feature four players and seven coaches who at one point used to either play or coach for Sunday’s opponent. Here’s the list of all the former Steelers that are now employed by the Cards. The Coaches • Ken Whisenhunt […]
  • Fitz definitely on Tomlin’s radar

    Every team that is preparing to play the Arizona Cardinals devises a plan to contain Larry Fitzgerald. Few accomplish this. Pittsburgh Steelers’ head coach Mike Tomlin is quite aware of No. 11 in red and white heading into Sunday’s game at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. After all, it was Fitzgerald who scored two […]
  • Wells says Steelers or not, Cardinals just need a win

    Ken Whisenhunt used to coach for the Steelers, as did much of his staff. Combine that with a handful of players who also have ties to Pittsburgh and the fact that these teams met in the Super Bowl just a few years ago and it would make sense that Sunday’s game brings a little extra […]
  • Cardinals ready for physical Steelers

    It’s always an attraction when the Pittsburgh Steelers come to town. They’re the defending AFC champs. They’ve won six Super Bowls. They’ve got an incredible, towel-waving fan base in every NFL city, including Phoenix- a fact that should be quite evident when the Steelers invade Arizona Sunday afternoon. The Cardinals’ roster and coaching staff are […]
  • Todd Heap knows Steelers present great challenge

    Todd Heap knows the Pittsburgh Steelers. A Baltimore Raven for the first 10 years of his NFL career, Heap has faced the Black and Gold 16 times, tallying 54 catches for 602 yards and four touchdowns. The Cardinals’ next opponent, the tight end certainly has some insight he can share. “I’m definitely familiar with the […]
  • Ken Whisenhunt hasn’t fared well after the bye

    When a team is struggling, the bye week is generally greeted with open arms as an opportunity to get things back on track. At least, it should be? If getting things back on track means coming out of the extra week of rest with a victory, Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt hasn’t been known for […]
  • Cardinals meeting with players and coaches was about accountability

    Arizona Sports 620’s Ron Wolfley shared some insight on the Cardinals players only meeting that wasn’t in fact a players only meeting. “To me that’s the best kind of meeting you can possibly have,” Wolfley said, “where a coach opens it up to players and they just sit and listen. And the reason why is […]
  • Fitzgerald says it’s not right to blame Whisenhunt

    The Cardinals’ slow 1-4 start on the heels of last year’s 5-11 season has fans starting to question head coach Ken Whisenhunt. However, starting wideout Larry Fitzgerald believes the team’s struggles aren’t Whisenhunt’s fault. “I think coach Whisenhunt is taking to much of a bad wrap for things that have happened this season,” Fitzgerald said. […]
  • Back from bye, Cardinals turn focus to themselves

    The Arizona Cardinals are 1-4 while the San Francisco 49ers are 5-1. While media and fans alike may be paying close attention to the standings, the Cardinals say they’re not really concerned with what’s happening by the bay. “You can’t worry about that,” Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “All I can worry about is where […]
  • Dockett says talent isn’t everything

    The Arizona Cardinals returned to practice today after four days off for the bye week. Veteran defensive tackle Darnell Dockett was in a chatty mood as he stood next to his locker and assessed the team’s four game losing streak. “We gotta a lot of talent on this team but talent don’t mean nothing. When […]
