Money, expectations change the game for Diamondbacks

If the Diamondbacks are concerned about big heads due to being "offseason winners," they need look no further than to a division rival as a cautionary tale.

Who knew the Suns bottoming out could feel so terrible?

While the Phoenix Suns being bad may actually be a very good thing, the way they have hit the bottom is difficult to stomach.

Neither John Brown nor Arizona Cardinals owe an apology

Fantasy owners who had Brown in their lineups got a big fat zero from one of the game's more productive receivers, and may have lost a crucial game because of it.

Phoenix Suns need to grow up, let performance speak for them

Any fan who spent their money on a ticket to be at the game did their job. From there, it's up to the players to give that fan something to cheer about.

Larry Fitzgerald and Goran Dragic: Winning makes a difference

Where the scenarios are similar is that the players have most of the leverage, and in some way could choose their path. Fitzgerald chose to stay; Dragic chose to leave.

Notes from the Nest: Cardinals vs. Lions

End of game Indeed it did. Stanton kneels down a few times and that does it in Glendale. Pretty? No, not in the least. But a win is a win, and the Cardinals are 9-1. 2 minute warning Facing a 3rd and 11, Larry Fitzgerald makes a catch for 11 yards. Knew where the sticks […]

Arizona Cardinals show toughness and composure in win over San Francisco 49ers

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The San Francisco 49ers have played in bigger games than this one. Yet, when the pressure started to mount, they started to wilt. On Sunday afternoon at University of Phoenix Stadium, it was the Arizona Cardinals who kept their composure; it was the Cardinals who rose to the occasion. Arizona went into […]

Arizona Cardinals gladly take ‘ugly’ win to open 2014 season

Over and over toward the end of last season, random Arizona Cardinals members could be heard lamenting how the team let a win slip away from its grasps in the first week of the season.

Notes from the Nest: Cardinals vs. Chargers

Game over Dwyer picks up a first down on a run and that’s it. Cards escape with a 18-17 win. Big. Very, very big. 1:43 left in fourth quarter Larry Foote deflects Rivers’ fourth-down pass, Cards take over. They can’t quite kneel on the ball, but they’re close. It’s 2nd and 8. 2:00 left in […]

Arizona Cardinals look to get something out of preseason loss to Cincinnati Bengals

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The pendulum does swing both ways. For as good as the Arizona Cardinals looked at times in their first two preseason games, they looked just as bad at times during their third. The offense mustered just 298 total net yards while converting on just 3-of-13 third down attempts, with some passes being […]

An eye for an eye has left Arizona blind

In this job you are not really supposed to “root” for teams. Though you may have grown up following them, you are supposed to become an impartial spectator who can simply write the facts without being jaded (or blinded) by previous loyalties. Sadly, even if I wanted to root for the Arizona Diamondbacks, they are […]
