  • Colangelo remains optimistic

    There have been hours and hours of talks between owners and players in the National Basketball Association concerning the NBA lockout that has at least delayed the 2011-12 season.

  • ASU won’t lose focus

    It’s referred to as coach speak but it’s not coming from the head coach. It’s coming from the quarterback. It’s coming from one of the team’s captains. “I do know,” said Brock Osweiler, “that this team has been very good about taking it one week at a time and I think that’s the most important […]
  • Are we watching something we love die right in front of us?

    “I’m against picketing, but I don’t know how to show it.” – Mitch Hedberg Why, pray tell, am I starting this piece about the NBA lockout with a joke from late comedian Mitch Hedberg?

  • Injury woes continue for Beanie Wells

    Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells has battled through nagging injuries all season but despite that he is playing the best football of his career.

    PHOENIX – With the Arizona Cardinals loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, many are starting to question whether Kevin Kolb is the answer at quarterback for the team.

  • Burfict named Butkus semifinalist

    Arizona State junior linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been a target of both local and national media for what is perceived as lackluster play in 2011.

  • Raise the white flag? No, that’s not how it’s done

    At 1-5 the Cardinals’ 2011 season, for all intents and purposes, is over. There will be no division title, no wild card berth, no magical playoff run and no Super Bowl. Honestly, at this point, nobody can even guarantee that there will be anymore wins. That, however, doesn’t mean it’s time to enter the Andrew […]
  • Kevin Kolb an experienced rookie?

    It’s no secret that new quarterback Kevin Kolb has been less than stellar in his first season as a Cardinal.

Since that win Kolb’s completion percentage and […]

  • Fellow receivers are not responsible for Larry Fitzgerald’s down season

    It is no secret that the Arizona Cardinals offense is struggling, as one needs only look at Larry Fitzgerald’s statistics to see there are some issues. 31 receptions, 505 yards, two touchdowns. Not embarrassing, but not great. And, as we all know, Fitz is great. So what’s the problem? Well, it’s not that the team […]
  • Time has come for Cardinals to evaluate, maybe make changes

    That’s now five straight losses for the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Don’t expect the Cardinals to go RB shopping

  • Beanie Wells injured, could have been worse

    The Cardinals needed Beanie Wells to step up this season, and the third-year pro has responded by averaging 4.6 yards per carry and scoring six times.
