  • Suns hit the road, continue winning ways

    The following article is not real. It is our best guess as to what would have happened had the NBA season actually started on time, playing every game on the 2011-12 schedule. Clearly that’s not the case, and every stat, quote or observation below never actually happened. But without REAL NBA basketball to talk about […]
  • Cardinals, Eagles share some history

    When the Arizona Cardinals take the field Sunday in Philadelphia they will be taking on the Eagles for the 33rd time since the team moved to Arizona.

  • Don’t expect to see Sun Devils make a change at kicker

    Arizona State kicker Alex Garoutte has had ups and downs in his first year with the team, though none of the downs were as low as the one he suffered Saturday against UCLA. Called upon three times for field goal attempts, the freshman missed all three — including a 46-yard attempt that would won the […]

  • Patrick Peterson is the league’s best returner

    Patrick Peterson has returned 19 punts this season, picking up 414 yards and three touchdowns. Two of those touchdowns have won games for the Cardinals, and his average of 21.8 yards per return easily leads the league. So maybe it should be no surprise that the Cardinals rookie is garnering recognition, including being named as […]
  • Cardinals still hampered by injuries

    Even though the Cardinals won Sunday, the team shouldn’t celebrate for long. Moving forward the team has to deal with a number of key injuries to important players. Kevin Kolb is battling turf toe and his status for this Sunday is still up in the air. “Sounds cliché but we just got to see how […]
  • The Cardinals are bad, but are they the worst?

    You’ll be hard pressed to find anyone who argues that the Arizona Cardinals are a good football team, but at 2-6 are they really the worst the NFC has to offer? NBCSports.com’s Evan Silva thinks so, and he predicts the team to win just one more time this season. On the bright side, Silva notes, […]
  • Kolb for DRC: It’s a wash

    Sunday’s game between the Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field will mark the first time the two teams have met since the NFC Championship Game following the 2008 season. It will also be the first time Cardinals’ quarterback Kevin Kolb and Eagles’ defensive back Dominique Rodgers- Cromartie will line up against their […]
  • Young Wildcats adjusting to games that count

    About three-quarters through the first half former Arizona Wildcat star guard made a simple and probably overlooked statement about freshman guard Josiah Turner, “by the time the PAC-12 starts he is going to be a different player.” That statement is what will be the difference in Arizona making another NCAA Tournament run or falling short […]
  • Cards’ hard work and preparation pays off

    During a six game losing streak it can be easy to lose faith in a team philosophy, but Sunday’s 19-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams showed that Cardinals players have not abandoned hope on the the season. “We’ve got so many young guys that are trying to do it the right way and when […]
  • ASU moves past UCLA defeat

    Disappointing. Gut-wrenching. That’s how ASU head coach Dennis Erickson described Saturday night’s 29-28 loss to UCLA. “We did not make plays when we had to,” he said Monday. Added quarterback Brock Osweiler, “I don’t know if you ever fully recover from a game like that. It’s something that definitely just takes time but it’s Monday. […]
  • Erickson: ‘I cost us 25 seconds’

    ASU had the ball at its own 24-yard line, down one and 42 seconds left on the clock. Brock Osweiler said they had plenty of time to move into field goal range for a possible game-winning kick. Dennis Erickson, however, said the Sun Devil offense should’ve had more time; and he blames himself for mismanaging […]
  • ASU (still) waiting on Jahii Carson

    The ASU basketball season begins Friday. The Sun Devils sixth season under head coach Herb Sendek tips off against Montana State; and yet, the biggest topic surrounding the program remains freshman point guard Jahii Carson. “I know the most frequently asked question these days is regarding Jahii’s status,” Sendek said Monday. “I’ll head you off […]
  • Things don’t get any easier as Cardinals prepare for Eagles

    Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Sunday’s 19-13 win over the Rams will do a lot to lift the team’s spirits and get them to believe in what they’re doing. It’s a good thing they feel better about themselves, because next week’s opponent is just a little better than the one the team just beat. […]
  • Cardinals get the win but have much to work on

    After six long weeks — seven if you include the bye week — the Cardinals finally picked up their second win Sunday against the Rams.

  • Paulie Pigskin’s Sideline Notebook: Cards beat Rams

    As I flip thru my Paulie Pigskin Official Sideline Reporter Notebook, here’s a Sawed Off Shotgun of Scribblings… When you hear Adrian Wilson shout on the sideline: “…He got his five, he got his five…” AW is reacting to a Patrick Peterson punt return. As for “P-Twice,” when he says “gimme five,” like he did […]
