  • Six Points: Bye week doesn’t cure Cardinals’ ills

    The Arizona Cardinals talked a good game and said all the right things during their bye week leading up to Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. There were emotional team meetings. There was the fact that NFL teams with home games after the bye had won with great regularity over the last two seasons. None […]

  • Notes from the nest: Cardinals vs. Steelers

    Game over And that will do it, Steelers win 32-20. Will have more from the locker room, should be, uhh, fun. 2:59 left in 4th quarter Steelers have the ball and are driving, though its all of little consequence. They are going to win this game and the Cardinals will lick their wounds as the […]
  • DDB: Miele to make NHL debut Sunday

    GLENDALE – I had a chance to speak with Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney during Friday’s practice and I asked him to explain why the team recalled center Andy Miele from the American Hockey League. “Andy had a strong training camp and he’s been our best player in the AHL and we think he can […]
  • Kennedy, Upton finalists for MLB Players Choice Awards

    Arizona Diamondbacks standouts Ian Kennedy and Justin Upton were both listed as finalists in this year’s MLB Players Choice Awards that were announced on Friday. Kennedy is one of three finalists for the National League Outstanding Pitcher Award, along with Dodgers’ lefty Clayton Kershaw and Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay. The 26- year-old right hander tied for […]
  • Ray Horton is doing the right thing

    The Cardinals scaled back their defense after a week three loss to Seattle and the team is chomping at the bit to put more back into the scheme. But defensive coordinator Ray Horton is doing what he’s supposed to do as a coach, and he’s telling them they’re not ready. “I didn’t think they were […]
  • Unexpected sympathy for Stoops

    Something completely unexpected happened to me on Thursday night while I was watching the Arizona Wildcats completely embarrass a bad UCLA football team by 36 points. I felt sympathy for recently booted Wildcats head coach Mike Stoops. Me, a Sun Devil fan since the age of seven, feeling sorry for a man who coached at […]
  • Is Brock Osweiler too complacent?

    “The way I see it in my eyes is we’re first place in the Pac-12 South,” ASU quarterback Brock Osweiler said. “We’re sitting right where we had hoped we’d be at this time during the season and we just have to continue to build upon that.” Osweiler has been praised for his leadership this season, […]
  • Arizona Sports predicts Cardinals vs. Steelers

    The Cardinals, after a week off, return to the field to face arguably the best team they have all season: the Pittsburgh Steelers. Not quite a rematch of Super Bowl XLIII, the 4-2 Steelers could effectively end the Cardinals’ season with a win, seeing as how a 1-5 hole would probably too deep for Arizona […]
  • Cardinals and Steelers met at UofP Stadium before

    In the Ken Whisenhunt era the Arizona Cardinals have played the Pittsburgh Steelers twice. All Cardinals fans should remember one of those occasions was in Super Bowl XLIII, which the Cardinals lost in the final seconds. But before that the teams met at University of Phoenix Stadium in 2007, where Whisenhunt picked up his second […]
  • Behind Enemy Lines – Pittsburgh coming to Glendale

    After their bye week, the Arizona Cardinals sit at 1-4, three and a half games behind the surprising San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West standings. In other words, there’s work to be done for the Cardinals to climb back into contention, and that work starts this week as the defending AFC Champion Pittsburgh Steelers […]

  • Off the Ice: Kyle Turris for Zach Parise trade topics tackled

    On Wednesday, I tweeted a rumor about the New Jersey Devils being interested in Phoenix Coyotes holdout center Kyle Turris and the possibility that the Coyotes may be able to pry Zach Parise away from the Devils. Boy, did that get some responses. @ghosthoffa, along with @HR1616, see Parise’s value and know that the Devils […]
  • Fitzgerald: Blame the players, not Whisenhunt

    With Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt rumored to be on the hot seat, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald stepped in to say that fans should be blaming the players, not the coach. “There’s nothing wrong with what he’s teaching,” Fitzgerald said Thursday on Arizona Sports 620’s Big Red Rage. “It’s the same concepts that he […]
  • An NBA Insider who doesn’t bash Robert Sarver?

    Day 112 of the NBA lockout began with some optimism. It ended on Thursday night with none. Talks between the players and owners broke down, public accusations flew from both sides, and no further talks were scheduled following three straight marathon bargaining sessions in New York. One of the more prevalent themes of this work […]
  • Playoffs? No, we’re not talking about playoffs for the Cardinals

    At 1-4 the Arizona Cardinals chances of reaching the NFL playoffs are, shall we say, slim. Already chasing the 5-1 San Francisco 49ers, Arizona’s chances of turning the season around and climbing back into the race take a hit because their next two opponents are the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens. Tough as it may […]
  • Big Ben a hard man to bring down

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has run for only 52 yards this season. There’s eleven NFL quarterbacks who have amassed more yardage with their legs than he has. Roethlisberger has also been sacked 18 times in six games- – the 3rd highest total in the league this year. Despite those figures, Roethlisberger is still one […]
  • So you’re saying the Cardinals have a chance against the Steelers

    The Pittsburgh Steelers are 4-2, the Arizona Cardinals 1- 4. The visitors come into the game 3.5 point favorites, with most expecting the Cardinals’ losing streak to continue. But maybe not. “They absolutely have a chance,” ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo. Jaworski said the tricky thing is predicting […]
  • ESPN analyst says Cardinals need to form their own identity

    The idea of turning the Arizona Cardinals into Pittsburgh West has been around ever since the team hired Ken Whisenhunt to be head coach. Whether it was putting them on the coaching staff or signing some in free agency, the Cardinals sideline is littered with former Steelers. ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski, as a guest […]
  • Leave Vontaze Burfict alone!

    Note from the author: the column you are about to read was not easy for me to write. As an Arizona fan and alum I die a little inside every time I defend anything related to Arizona State, but my duty as a columnist pushed me to this point. I’m sorry, Wilbur. This has not […]
