  • Arizona Cardinals have an ocean of options

    You’ve probably read that best-selling business book Swim With the Sharks Without Being Eaten, right? Yeah, me neither. But considering that the author is an AZ resident who frequents our local sporting events and doesn’t exactly sit in the Uecker seats… uh, I’d probably be well-advised to read it, no doubt.

  • Could the Seahawks force the Cardinals to overpay for Kevin Kolb?

    Sal Paolantonio has already made it clear that the Seahawks and Cardinals will battle it out to obtain the services of Kevin Kolb, but what exactly could that do to the asking price for the Eagles signal caller?
