  • ASU with an easy(?) test against Colorado

    On paper it would appear #21 ASU should have little trouble against Colorado. The Buffaloes are 1-7 and 0-4 in their first year of PAC- 12 play. They have lost five straight, six straight against ranked teams and 21 straight away from home. In addition, Colorado has lost 11 regulars in its two deep—including six […]
  • Jaworski on Cardinals: ‘It’s either poor coaching or dumb players’

    When an NFL team starts a season 1-5, there’s plenty of blame to be spread around. Fans have mostly sprinkled that blame among the quarterback, the offensive line, the coaching, the lack of pass rush and the play of the secondary. ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Ron Jaworski breaks it down in an even more […]
  • Dockett sounds off? Cardinal talks defense

    Darnell Dockett is not having a particularly good season. A Pro Bowl talent, Dockett has recorded just 18 tackles and half a sack this season, failing to really make any kind of impact that would show up on the stat sheet. While some have argued Dockett’s play can be attributed to the contract extension he […]
  • DDB: Doan Would Trade Milestones for Wins

    GLENDALE – When it comes to talking about milestones, Coyotes captain Shane prefers to talk about other people’s rather than his. I learned this a long time ago, but it was underlined for me after practice today when I tried to speak to Doan about how he scored his 300th NHL goal on Tuesday night […]
  • Upton named NL All-Star by Sporting News

    The honors continue to pour in for Arizona Diamondbacks’ right fielder Justin Upton, who Thursday was named to the Sporting News National League All- Star team . Upton’s 31 home runs and 88 runs batted in led the Diamondbacks, who won the fifth division title in their 14- year history and lost in the NLCS […]
  • LeBron James hoping for Steve Nash to join him in Miami?

    Last offseason LeBron James was able to convince Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade to join him in Miami. Will Steve Nash be next? James, who is either bored, playing GM or both, sent out a tweet Thursday that got the NBA world abuzz. Maybe @SteveNash in a Heat uni! So we can help each other […]
  • Mr. Threet goes to Washington

    Steven Threet is used to the spotlight. It comes with the job of playing quarterback for a major college football program. But those days are over. Yet the spotlight remains. The former ASU quarterback found himself in our nation’s capital last week speaking in front of the U.S. Senate. “My C-SPAN debut,” he said with […]
  • Kolb’s footwork catching up to Cardinals offense

    According to Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb, getting his footwork accustomed to the Cards’ offense has been a very delicate act. “It’s a fine line you’ve gotta walk and I’m trying to walk it as fine as I can,” Kolb said Wednesday. Apparently, Kolb is used to a standard seven-step drop, hitting his back foot […]
  • Kevin Kolb says he can handle criticism

    It’s the constant battle between pro athletes and the media. Do you listen, watch or read the criticism that’s coming your way? Most athletes claim they pay no attention to what we have to say but whether it’s true or not, we may never know. Wednesday it was Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb’s turn to […]
  • NFL writer calls Whisenhunt ‘one of the best’

    It has been a difficult slide for Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt. Since the Super Bowl appearance in 2008 followed by the 10-6 season in 2009, the Cardinals have won just six of 22 games. The joke around the Valley is that Whisenhunt has taken the place of ASU football head coach Dennis Erickson on […]
  • Heap’s return to Charm City in jeopardy

    For Arizona Cardinal fans who tune into Sunday’s road game against the Baltimore Ravens, there may be a little feeling of nostalgia. How can you blame them? It’ll be the first time that Anquan Boldin, who spent his first seven years in the league in Cardinal red, will play against his former team. But on […]
  • Sunday will be just another game for Anquan Boldin

    When the Cardinals play in Baltimore on Sunday the team will see a familiar face on the other sideline. Wideout Anquan Boldin played the first seven seasons of his career with the Cardinals before being traded to the Ravens prior to the 2010 campaign, and while this could be looked at as a big game […]
  • Cardinals to play against former leader Boldin

    The legend of Anquan Boldin began fairly early. A 2nd round pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, “The Quan” was the second receiver taken by the team that April but quickly ascended to folk hero status. That must be what happens when a rookie follows up a good training camp and preseason with a 10-catch, […]
  • Homecoming in Tempe and Week 9 in Pac-12

    We head into the last weekend of October, and things are starting to look a little more clear in the Pac-12–or maybe half of it. The Pac-12 South sees 21st-ranked Arizona State clearly in the catbird seat, while the intrigue is still thick in the North, with Stanford and Oregon still undefeated in conference play […]
  • Cardinals blitz more than any other team in the NFC West

    Even though the Cardinals haven’t won in five games and the defense hasn’t looked very good in that time, defensive coordinator Ray Horton has come through in one way. Horton promised, when he was hired, that the defense would be more aggressive and the team would blitz on more occasions. According to ESPN’s Mike Sando […]
  • ESPN Insider: The quicker to re-sign Erickson the better

    It’s no secret that Arizona State head coach is enjoying one of his better seasons. The Devils are leading the Pac-12 South, in control of their own destiny to reach the Pac-12 championship game and, given the outlook of everyone else in the division, the team could be atop for quite some time. So it […]
  • Cardinals O-line did a good job against Pittsburgh

    Much maligned, the Cardinals offensive line has taken quite a bit of criticism this season. Much of it has been deserved, as Kevin Kolb has been sacked 18 times in six games and the running game, while solid, is nothing special. However, as Pro Football Focus points out, the group had a pretty decent game […]
  • Coyotes Shane Doan scores 300th career goal

    GLENDALE – Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan reached a significant achievement on Tuesday, scoring his 300th career goal. Doan was able to beat Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen at the 8:13 mark of the third period for the milestone goal and it gave the Coyotes a 2-1 lead in the game. Unfortunately for Doan and Phoenix, […]
  • Should the Cards have interest in Bernard Berrian?

    PHOENIX – The Arizona Cardinals at 1-5 have all kinds of problems from lack of a pass rush, inexperienced secondary, struggling offensive line and Kevin Kolb trying to learn the offense. However, not much has been made of their lack of a true number two wide receiver to take pressure off Larry Fitzgerald. A potential […]
  • ASU getting pass rush help

    Teams always believe they can get more pressure on the quarterback. ASU believes they’ll be able to do just that with the return of sophomore defensive end Junior Onyeali. “Having Junior back (Saturday against Colorado) makes a big difference,” explained head coach Dennis Erickson. Onyeali, who led the Sun Devils and all PAC-10 freshmen with […]
