  • Dennis Erickson talks job security, desire to keep coaching

    To say Dennis Erickson’s seat is getting warm would be an understatement. Thought to be in line for a contract extension only a few weeks ago, the only line many want to see him in is the one with an “unemployment” sign hanging above. Tuesday Arizona Sports 620’s John Gambadoro, who wrote that it’s time […]

  • John Skelton nominated for NFL award

    Apparently leading a fourth quarter comeback gets you noticed around the league.

  • Ken Whisenhunt: Cardinals coach, ruiner of QBs?

    Ken Whisenhunt has had six different starting quarterbacks over his five years as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. Of a group including Matt Leinart, Kurt Warner, Derek Anderson, Max Hall, John Skelton and Kevin Kolb, only Warner could be considered a good passer. Is that a sign Coach Whiz is a poor judge of […]
  • Whisenhunt: No controversy at quarterback

    During his weekly segment with Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf, Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt addressed the brewing controversy at the quarterback position. “Right now, nothing has changed,” Whisenhunt said. “Until Kevin is cleared, until we can assess where he is physically, we’re going to continue as we are. So there is no controversy.” […]
  • Larry Fitzgerald still able to impress Whisenhunt

    Heading into Sunday’s matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, Larry Fitzgerald had 38 catches, 646 yards and three touchdown catches. Pedestrian-like numbers for the future hall of famer. But the lack of production was never blamed on anything Fitzgerald was doing or not doing; fans knew he was ready to break out any game. The Eagles […]
  • D-backs sell Mickolio to Japanese team

  • Paulie Pigskin’s Sideline Notebook: A win in Philly

    As I flip thru my Paulie Pigskin Reporter Notebook (stained w/cheese steak), here’s a Sawed Off Shotgun of Sideline Scribblings… Giveth & Taketh Away: What did John Skelton do after throwing the pick-six to Asante Samuel?

  • ASU players aware of coach’s hot seat

    It’s hard to ignore. “I’d be lying if I said we weren’t aware of it,” said quarterback Brock Osweiler. “Obviously you read things and you hear things,” added defensive lineman Bo Moos. What’s being read and what’s being heard is that their head coach is on the proverbial hot seat. Follow @theAdamGreen
  • Heap itching to get back on field

    Tight end Todd Heap was one of the Arizona Cardinals bigger offseason acquisitions, but like another unnamed offseason addition he hasn’t performed to expectations. This season Heap has played in five games, catching 13 passes for 150 yards and no touchdowns. This is a player who, coming into this season, had 480 receptions, 5,502 yards […]
  • Skelton says if healthy, Kolb will be the starter

    John Skelton was asked, point blank, if he would be the starting QB when Kevin Kolb is healthy enough to play. “That’s not for me to say or me to speculate about,” Skelton told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo. “Kevin came in as the starting quarterback. He went through his trials and tribulations like […]

Consecutive road losses to UCLA and Washington State has thrust Erickson’s future as the Sun Devils head […]
  • Young defense still learning, but improving

    After a full season and a half the Cardinals finally won on the road Sunday, knocking off the Eagles 21-17. It’s no secret the defense played a big role in the win. The Eagles went 3-15 on third downs, while quarterback Michael Vick was held to 123 yards passing with two interceptions. It seems players […]

  • Here’s what happens when you lose to the Cardinals

    The Philadelphia Eagles had high hopes for 2011. The organization went out and stockpiled free agents and trade acquisitions like All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, former Pro Bowlers Jason Babin, Steve Smith, Ronnie Brown and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Super Bowl Champion Cullen Jenkins. Considering they were the NFC East champions a year ago, there was reason […]

  • Erickson on WSU loss: ‘Very, very, very, very disturbing’

    A couple of weeks ago it looked as if the Arizona State Sun Devils would cruise down the stretch of their schedule and head to the Pac-12 Championship Game as the representatives of the South and take on either Oregon or Stanford.
