  • ‘Vanilla’ defense not helping Arizona Cardinals look good

    Cardinals linebacker Sam Acho knows the team has not run its normal defense during the preseason. As is customary, Ray Horton has left out the blitzes and pressure-schemes in favor of simple, basic stuff. With that — and perhaps because of it — the Cardinals have not done too well, being run over seemingly at […]
  • Cardinals announce Raiders game sold out

    The Arizona Cardinals have sold out their preseason game against the Oakland Raiders, the team announce Tuesday. The game, which will be televised locally on KNXV-TV, is the 64th-consecutive sellout for the team since moving into University of Phoenix Stadium in August of 2006.

  • Camp T is a ‘rite of passage’

    August 14, 2012: ASU ends four-year absence When this page was last updated, I was wrapping up a week-long stay in Flagstaff covering the Cardinals. Now, after an extended break, it is time once again to head north (and escape the heat), though this time the destination is Payson and Camp Tontozona for ASU football. […]
  • Worst play in baseball history? You decide (it is)

    Sports blooper reels exist for a reason. Our athletes, many of whom are the best our species has to offer for their particular sport, make even the most difficult of plays look easy at times. However, every now and then what should be an easy play is made to look difficult, and from that point […]
  • Arizona Cardinals coach ready to see progress in games

    The Cardinals continue training camp in Flagstaff this week and in practice and on paper, they’re looking pretty good. Too bad practice and paper don’t count. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt talked about the progress his team and his leaders have made since Friday’s disappointing loss to the Chiefs. “Yesterday was a good physical practice,” he […]
  • Nationals make 50 Shades of Grey even more awkward

    The Washington Nationals came into Chase Field and took two of three games from the Arizona Diamondbacks, reaffirming their position as one of baseball’s best teams. The team’s pitching staff is a big reason why, and maybe — just maybe — the secret to their success involves shades of grey. Fifty of them, to be […]
  • Arizona Cardinals coach denies report John Skelton is the favorite

    Ken Whisenhunt said he doesn’t know much about Adam Schefter’s report that John Skelton is the favorite to win the Cardinals QB job. “I just know that as far as favorites and longshots, really I’ve never thought of it in those terms,” he said at his daily media briefing Tuesday in Flagstaff. “I think we […]
  • D-backs place Saito on DL, recall Zagurski

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed right-handed pitcher Takashi Saito on the 15-day DL with a strained left hamstring. In a corresponding move, the team has selected the contract of left-handed pitcher Mike Zagurski. Saito, 42, appeared in 10 games with the D-backs, going 0-0 with a 6.14 ERA in 7.1 innings of work. He allowed […]
  • Arizona Cardinals LB Schofield says defense must focus on details

    Much is expected of the Arizona Cardinals defense, especially with the way the group finished the 2011 campaign. Unfortunately the defense has more closely resembled Swiss cheese than a brick wall, leading many to wonder if complacency has become an issue. O’Brien Schofield, one of the young players expected to have a key role in […]
  • Former NFL receiver disappointed in Arizona Cardinals Kevin Kolb

    There will be plenty of disappointed people if Kevin Kolb does not win the Arizona Cardinals starting QB job. From the team that traded for him, the players who supported the move and the fans who believed in him, all will feel a sense of being letdown should John Skelton emerge as the team’s starting […]
  • Adam’s not-so-random thought: Choose Skelton and there’s no going back to Kevin Kolb for Arizona Cardinals

    The news came as a shock. Sort of. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Tuesday that John Skelton is the favorite to win the Cardinals QB job. This is the same Adam Schefter who first brought up the idea that the Cardinals may part with Matt Leinart in September 2010, so it’s safe to say he may […]
  • ESPN: Skelton the favorite to win Cardinals QB job

    The quarterback carousel keeps on turning. The Arizona Cardinals have one of the most talked-about quarterback competitions this preseason, and now, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter has chimed in. The Arizona Cardinals plan to start quarterback Kevin Kolb against the Oakland Raiders on Friday in their third preseason game. However , John Skelton is considered […]
  • Arizona Cardinals’ QB Kevin Kolb not caught up in competition

    Kevin Kolb knows it’s time for him to step up and win the starting quarterback job for the Arizona Cardinals outright. Still, he isn’t putting much stake into the competition between himself and teammate John Skelton. Instead, he is focused on improving his own game. “For me it’s just making myself a better player,” Kolb […]
  • Adam Snyder adjusting to Arizona Cardinals’ offense

    When the Arizona Cardinals lured lineman Adam Snyder away from the rival San Francisco 49ers this offseason and inserted him into the right guard position, it was in an effort to bolster an offensive line that has had trouble finding its rhythm. While Snyder has struggled with the pass protection in the preseason’s early going, […]
  • Phoenix Mayor breaks nose at Merc practice

    Don’t tell Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton that they don’t play tough basketball in the WNBA. Stanton, who took over the office after winning the runoff election last November, was practicing Monday at US Airways Center with the Phoenix Mercury, and came away from the action with a broken nose. Stanton went up for a rebound […]
  • Vinsanity: I’ll admit…I’m worried about Cardinals’ QBs

    After watching the Arizona Cardinals’ second preseason game — a 27-17 loss to Kansas City last Friday — one phrase stuck in my head. Uh-oh! The NFL is a quarterback’s league and the Cardinals’ much-talked-about quarterback competition has been an exercise in futility through two exhibition contests. Kevin Kolb, who held an edge (if only […]
  • Whisenhunt: ‘Our starters may play entire game’

    Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt is extremely disappointed with his team after its poor performance in Kansas City during Friday’s 27-17 loss to the Chiefs. His solution: play the starters until they “get it right”. “I’m displeased with all units,” said Whisenhunt after Monday’s practice in Flagstaff. “There are a few players that are doing […]
  • Arizona Cardinals rookie Lindley keeps improving, impressing

    Ask anyone which Cardinals QB has looked the best over the course of two preseason games, and the answer you get may not involve either of the two guys vying for the starting job. While Kevin Kolb and John Skelton continue their competition, rookie Ryan Lindley has quietly improved. A sixth-round pick out of San […]
  • Arizona Cardinals DE Campbell: ‘No need to panic’ about defense

    There were many questions surrounding the 2012 Arizona Cardinals when the team entered the preseason, but few of them belonged to the defense. The group finished 2011 strong and figured to only improve from there. But if the first two preseason games were any indication, there are plenty of problems that need solutions. A lack […]
