  • Fitzgerald says Cardinals have makings of a ‘special backfield’

    The Cardinals’ running game hasn’t been anything worth writing home about since the team moved to the desert, but that could change this season.

  • Good training camp does not guarantee success for Cardinals

    All things considered, the Arizona Cardinals are having a good training camp.

  • National media still doesn’t get these Diamondbacks

    You’d like to think that, sooner or later, the national media will see what’s going on in the desert and take notice of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
