  • 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 […]
  • Daryl Washington hopes to play for Cardinals Sunday

    Daryl Washington was a spectator at Cardinals practice Wednesday, certainly not a surprise after he suffered a strained calf in the season opener. “It felt pretty good today,” he said as he came off the field. “I tried a little jogging on it today but it’s a little sore, still going to be a little […]
  • Familiarity leads to preparation for Cardinals vs. Redskins

    Coming off a Week 1 win the Arizona Cardinals are looking to improve on a less than stellar defensive performance as they take on the Washington Redskins.

  • Cardinals tickets among cheapest in NFL

    The Cardinals are cheap, but in a good way. It doesn’t cost much to see a Cardinals game live, at least, not when compared to some other NFL teams.

  • Overall Cardinals pleased with game one

    PHOENIX – Sunday after the Cardinals beat the Carolina Panthers, they were a bit hesitant to give themselves a thumbs up or thumbs down on their performance because it’s tough to do when everything just went by in a blur. Today the coaches and players were back at the facility in Tempe and having watched […]
  • Defensive backs give Cardinals reason for concern

    Unfortunately for the Cardinals, their defense was as bad as their offense was good in Sunday’s 28-21 win over the Carolina Panthers. Sure, the team won, but yielding 477 total yards is reason for pause, if not a little concern. “There’s no doubt about it,” Arizona Sports 620’s Ron Wolfley said of there being something […]
