  • Whisenhunt trumps Peterson for rookie of the year

    This Arizona Cardinal has done it four times this season, each time over 80 yards and he currently leads the NFL with 558 total yards. The player is Patrick Peterson and the name of the game is punt returns. Peterson returned his fourth punt for a touchdown Sunday against the Rams, tying an NFL record […]
  • Coach Whisenhunt ‘optimistic’ Kolb will be ready this week

    Kevin Kolb’s return could be at hand. Out since Week 8 after suffering a turf toe injury, the QB – – who was close to playing Sunday in St. Louis — may finally be ready to get back on the field. “I think that we’re certainly more optimistic about him being able to go this […]
  • Cardinals rookie Sam Acho brings the pass rush

    Suddenly, the Arizona Cardinals have a pass rush. The Cardinals have collected eight sacks over the last four games, with rookie Sam Acho being responsible for three of them. The former Texas Longhorn has five sacks on the season, and is looking more and more like a guy who can be a longterm answer at […]
  • Beanie Wells’ career day just part of career season

    It’s taken three years, but Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells is beginning to evolve into the talent fans were hoping. Wells continued his career season Sunday with a 228 yard rushing performance against the Rams, besting LeShon Johnson’s previous record of 214 yards set back in 1996 against New Orleans. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt […]
  • Peterson: ‘I just told him don’t kick it to me’

    Patrick Peterson did it again. The rookie from LSU returned a punt off of the foot of St. Louis Rams punter Donnie Jones 80 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter of the Cardinals’ 23-20 win on Sunday. It was the 2nd time in the last four games that Peterson returned a punt for […]

  • Jaworski: Time off could be beneficial to Kolb

    You never want to see your starting quarterback get injured, but perhaps some time on the sidelines is just what Kevin Kolb needs to turn his season around. That is what ESPN football analyst Ron Jaworski thought when he joined Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo. “I do think there is a little bit of […]
  • Kevin Kolb feeling better, anxious to play

    As Kevin Kolb’s turf toe injury continues to improve, the quarterback gets more anxious to be back out on the playing field. “Today was like Christmas and even Whiz said ‘hey you better settle yourself down,’ because he could tell I was excited,” Kolb said. Kolb suffered an inury to his toe during the 30-27 […]
  • ESPN Analyst: Skelton will be a starting QB one day

    It wasn’t hard to see why head coach Ken Whisenhunt benched QB John Skelton on Sunday. The second year player threw for 99 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions, which earned him the third worst QB rating in Cardinals history. Though Skelton didn’t exactly have a dream day, ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski sees a bright […]
  • Leinart says he ‘didn’t know how to prepare’ in Arizona

    There was a perception of Matt Leinart during his time in Arizona that he didn’t really care about being great, that he was somewhat lazy and unmotivated. Released by the team just before the 2010 season, Leinart signed with the Houston Texans — and re-signed with them in the offseason — and is now set […]
  • Loss brings back familiar talk from Whisenhunt

    Sunday’s 23-7 loss to the San Fransisco 49ers was a quick, swift kick back to reality for the Arizona Cardinals. During the Cardinals six-game losing streak head coach Ken Whisenhunt stressed giving the players time to learn the new schemes. He said it was difficult for a new quarterback to learn a new system. The […]
  • Skelton was bad Sunday, but not the worst in history

    What does completing 6 of 19 passes for 99 yards and three interceptions lead to? Well, besides a benching and a loss, a QB rating of 10.5. It’s as bad as it sounds. To be fair to Skelton, it’s not the lowest QB rating in NFL history. According to Wikipedia, as recently as 2007 Atlanta’s […]
  • Despite tough season, Cardinals stay positive

    Every loss is a tough pill to swallow. The Arizona Cardinals dropped their seventh game of the season Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, losing 23- 7. What makes it worse is the Cardinals, after rolling off two straight wins, finally looked like a team that was ready to turn the corner. Then came Sunday, […]
  • Cardinals defense takes step forward in loss

    And they’re back. The sloppy, mistake-ridden Cardinals fans have become used to watching on Sundays have returned. The team that racked up two straight wins seemed to be M.I.A. Sunday against the 49ers. The Cardinals had five turnovers, allowed 431 yards of offense, only had the ball for just over 15 minutes the whole game […]
  • Whisenhunt on Skelton: ‘That happens with young players’

    John Skelton’s Sunday did not go as planned. The second-year pro, who had won his previous two starts, completed just 6 of 19 passes for 99 yards and three interceptions in the team’s 23-7 loss to the 49ers, and was pulled from the game in the fourth quarter. A step back in his progression? Hard […]
  • Behind Enemy Lines – On the road to St. Louis

    The Arizona Cardinals’ modest two-game winning streak came to a screeching halt in San Francisco on Sunday in a 23-7 loss that was much more one- sided than the score would indicate. But the road work continues as the Cardinals will play their 3rd-straight away from the friendly confines of University of Phoenix Stadium as […]
  • Cardinals trounced in San Francisco, again

    The San Francisco 49ers continued their recent mastery of the Arizona Cardinals with an easy 23-7 win at Candlestick Park. Alex Smith threw for 267 yards and two touchdowns while leading the 49ers to their eighth straight win and fifth straight win over the Cardinals. Both touchdown tosses from Smith came within a 2:58 span […]

  • Cardinals can’t just focus on one area of 49ers offense

    Sunday’s matchup against the San Francisco 49ers will probably be one of the Cardinals’ toughest games this season. The Cardinals have momentum, rolling off two straight wins, but the team has to travel to San Francisco to take on the seventh-ranked offense and first-ranked defense of the 49ers. The Niners’ offense has come alive under […]
