  • Is Rich Rodriguez a top candidate for Arizona?

    The Arizona Wildcats are getting some national attention these days. Not for their play on the field, but because of the potential they offer a future head coach. Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf asked ESPN analyst Dave Pasch what people are saying about the school’s vacancy. “Arizona has come up in conversation because there […]
  • Super Bowl rematch? Not quite

    What’s the first thing that goes through your mind when you think of the Pittsburgh Steelers playing the Arizona Cardinals? If you’re a Cardinals fan, you’ll undoubtedly be besieged by images of Steeler receiver Santonio Holmes tip-toeing in the corner of the end zone in front of three helpless Cardinal defenders for Pittsburgh’s game-winning touchdown […]
  • DDB: Maloney analyzes first five games

    GLENDALE – So, what do we know about the 2011-12 Coyotes after five games? Certainly there have been some highs and some lows already in the young season. I asked General Manager Don Maloney what he thought on Wednesday after the team’s practice inside Jobing.com Arena. “We’ve seen some extremes, that’s for sure,” Maloney said. […]
  • Kolb: ‘We’re all seeing it more and more clearly’

    They are not the best. They are not the worst. They are average, literally. The Cardinals passing attack through the first six weeks of the season ranks 16th out of 32 teams in yards (237.2) per game. That though—at least according to quarterback Kevin Kolb, is about to change. “Our last three or four practices […]
  • ESPN insider: Arizona job a ‘hidden jewel’

    Few will doubt the assertion that whoever the next football coach is at the University of Arizona will inherit a better situation than his predecessor did. The Wildcats, after all, have gone to a bowl game three straight years (though the streak is likely to end this season), and has some talent spread throughout the […]
  • ESPN Insider: Burfict the most overrated player

    Even though Arizona State has a winning record and is on track to be the first Pac-12 South champ, linebacker Vontaze Burfict just can’t catch a break. The linebacker had four solo tackles but committed two personal foul penalties in Saturday’s 41-27 loss to the Oregon Ducks. Although Burfict is no stranger to the personal […]
  • Foles named Golden Arm finalist

    University of Arizona quarterback Nick Foles, who is enjoying a stellar statistical season despite his team’s dismal 1-5 record, has been named as one of ten finalists for the 2011 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, presented to the nation’s outstanding senior quarterback. Foles currently ranks 2nd in the nation in yards passing with 2,255 while […]
  • Cardinals struggles on D not due to lack of blitzing

    When Ray Horton took over as defensive coordinator he promised to bring pressure on a consistent basis. While the defense as a whole has been largely ineffective, Horton himself has kept to his word. According to Mike Sando’s ESPN NFC West Blog, the Cardinals get sacks twice as frequently when sending five or more rushers, […]
  • Greg Byrne narrows Arizona coaching list down to…100?

    If Arizona AD Greg Byrne has been clear about one thing with regards to his search for the team’s next football coach, it’s that he won’t divulge any information before he has to. Essentially, we won’t find out who his choices are until THE choice is made. That doesn’t mean there won’t be speculation, though, […]
  • The Kish Debut and Week 8 in the Pac-12

    The Arizona Wildcats and their athletic director, Greg Byrne, ran out of patience with their 8-year head coach Mike Stoops following a 1-5 start and a stretch of ten straight losses by the ‘Cats to FBS teams. Now, in week eight of Pac-12 play, we see the debut of interim head coach Tim Kish in […]
  • This is not Arizona’s first rodeo with an interim coach

    Mid-season coaching changes may not be the norm for college sports, but it’s not exactly foreign territory for the Arizona Wildcats. You see, the last time UA fired its head football coach was September 28, 2003, as they said goodbye to John Mackovic and hello to interim coach Mike Hankwitz. The defensive coordinator, Hankwitz took […]
  • Pittsburgh West? Many Cardinals have Steelers ties

    The Pittsburgh Steelers are a familiar team to many on the Arizona Cardinals staff. The Cardinals feature four players and seven coaches who at one point used to either play or coach for Sunday’s opponent. Here’s the list of all the former Steelers that are now employed by the Cards. The Coaches • Ken Whisenhunt […]
  • ASU — surprise, surprise — is getting healthy

    This season the news has been mostly bad for ASU on the injury front, but that may be changing soon. The pendulum, it appears, is slowly swinging towards good news for the Sun Devils. “Yeah, finally,” said head coach Dennis Erickson. “It’s been awhile.” For starters, defensive end Junior Onyeali (knee) is expected to return […]
  • Off the Ice: Defense-first just isn’t working

    When you look at the numbers, the Phoenix Coyotes and their defense-first emphasis seems to be working really well. They have allowed just as many goals as they have scored (16) and have slightly less shots than their opponents (151 to 156) in the first five games. But their record doesn’t back the numbers, as […]
  • Fitz definitely on Tomlin’s radar

    Every team that is preparing to play the Arizona Cardinals devises a plan to contain Larry Fitzgerald. Few accomplish this. Pittsburgh Steelers’ head coach Mike Tomlin is quite aware of No. 11 in red and white heading into Sunday’s game at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. After all, it was Fitzgerald who scored two […]
  • Wells says Steelers or not, Cardinals just need a win

    Ken Whisenhunt used to coach for the Steelers, as did much of his staff. Combine that with a handful of players who also have ties to Pittsburgh and the fact that these teams met in the Super Bowl just a few years ago and it would make sense that Sunday’s game brings a little extra […]
  • Cardinals ready for physical Steelers

    It’s always an attraction when the Pittsburgh Steelers come to town. They’re the defending AFC champs. They’ve won six Super Bowls. They’ve got an incredible, towel-waving fan base in every NFL city, including Phoenix- a fact that should be quite evident when the Steelers invade Arizona Sunday afternoon. The Cardinals’ roster and coaching staff are […]
  • Todd Heap knows Steelers present great challenge

    Todd Heap knows the Pittsburgh Steelers. A Baltimore Raven for the first 10 years of his NFL career, Heap has faced the Black and Gold 16 times, tallying 54 catches for 602 yards and four touchdowns. The Cardinals’ next opponent, the tight end certainly has some insight he can share. “I’m definitely familiar with the […]
  • Dennis Erickson says Sun Devils can beat Ducks

    With the way their respective seasons are going, there’s a decent chance Arizona State and Oregon will play again in the inaugural Pac-12 championship game. The Sun Devils lost to the Ducks last Saturday at Autzen – – where the rematch would likely be played — 41-27, but gained some confidence along the way. “There’s […]
  • Fox Sports Arizona picks up Colorado game

    On Monday, Arizona State’s Homecoming game against Colorado was passed over by the Pac-12’s national television partners and it appeared that the game would not be televised. Now, it will be on the tube, as Fox Sports Arizona has announced a local telecast for the October 29th game that is scheduled to kickoff at 3:30 […]
