  • Heap itching to get back on field

    Tight end Todd Heap was one of the Arizona Cardinals bigger offseason acquisitions, but like another unnamed offseason addition he hasn’t performed to expectations. This season Heap has played in five games, catching 13 passes for 150 yards and no touchdowns. This is a player who, coming into this season, had 480 receptions, 5,502 yards […]
  • Skelton says if healthy, Kolb will be the starter

    John Skelton was asked, point blank, if he would be the starting QB when Kevin Kolb is healthy enough to play. “That’s not for me to say or me to speculate about,” Skelton told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo. “Kevin came in as the starting quarterback. He went through his trials and tribulations like […]
  • Erickson on hot seat: ‘I can’t worry about that’

    In October it seemed like a foregone conclusion. Dennis Erickson would receive a contract extension at the end of the season. Now, as the calendar has flipped to November there’s a considerable amount of debate regarding an extension. Consecutive road losses to UCLA and Washington State has thrust Erickson’s future as the Sun Devils head […]
  • Young defense still learning, but improving

    After a full season and a half the Cardinals finally won on the road Sunday, knocking off the Eagles 21-17. It’s no secret the defense played a big role in the win. The Eagles went 3-15 on third downs, while quarterback Michael Vick was held to 123 yards passing with two interceptions. It seems players […]
  • NBA Commissioner David Stern: ‘Season now in jeopardy’

    NEW YORK, November 14, 2011 – NBA Commissioner David Stern has issued the following statement: “At a bargaining session in February 2010, Jeffrey Kessler, counsel for the union, threatened that the players would abandon the collective bargaining process and start an antitrust lawsuit against our teams if they did not get a bargaining resolution that […]
  • Here’s what happens when you lose to the Cardinals

    The Philadelphia Eagles had high hopes for 2011. The organization went out and stockpiled free agents and trade acquisitions like All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, former Pro Bowlers Jason Babin, Steve Smith, Ronnie Brown and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Super Bowl Champion Cullen Jenkins. Considering they were the NFC East champions a year ago, there was reason […]
  • Sun Devils and Wildcats set to battle for 85th time

    When Arizona State and Arizona take the field Saturday at Sun Devil Stadium it will be the 85th time the teams have met in the “Duel in the Desert,” and the first since last season’s stunning 30-29 ASU win in double overtime. The Sun Devils reclaimed the oldest trophy in college football – the Territorial […]
  • Erickson on WSU loss: ‘Very, very, very, very disturbing’

    A couple of weeks ago it looked as if the Arizona State Sun Devils would cruise down the stretch of their schedule and head to the Pac-12 Championship Game as the representatives of the South and take on either Oregon or Stanford. For all intents and purposes, the “hard” part of the Sun Devils’ schedule […]
  • Behind Enemy Lines – Cards visit mighty Niners

    The San Francisco 49ers are 8-1. You read that right. And not only are the Niners, with first-year head coach Jim Harbaugh in first place in the NFC West, they’ve got a 5-game lead over the Cardinals and Seahawks with six weeks to play. The 49ers hung on for a 27-20 win over the Giants […]
  • D-backs, Hill agree on new 2-year deal

    Multiple sources are reporting that the Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to a new two-year contract with second baseman Aaron Hill. Buster Olney of ESPN is reporting that the deal is worth $11 million. Hill was acquired in a trade from the Toronto Blue Jays along with John McDonald on August 23rd. The deal sent second […]
  • Parrom returns, gives Wildcats boost over Ball State

    In a lot of ways, Sunday night’s home affair with Ball State University felt like a throw-away game for the Wildcats. Josiah Turner, the star freshman point guard, started off the game on the bench for Sean Miller, and he finished in the same position he started. On top of that the Wildcats seemed to […]
  • No QB controversy here, Skelton should start over Kolb

    Much of the talk after the Cardinals’ improbable 21-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday has been about the quarterback position and what is now a bona-fide QB controversy. Or is it? Quarterback A has completed 56.8 percent of his passes for an average of 7.5 yards per attempt, has a 1:1 touchdown to interception […]
  • Cardinals conquer road woes in Philadelphia

    Well, that was unexpected. It had been well over a calendar year, 427 days in fact, since the Arizona Cardinals won a game away from University of Phoenix Stadium. But a string of 11 straight road losses came to an end on Sunday with a 21- 17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial […]

  • Missing: ASU’s pass defense

    Admit it. You were very comfortable with Arizona State traveling up to Pullman [the Timbuktu of the Pac-12] to take on a Cougars’ team that was circling the drain and had lost 5 straight games. Snow? No problem. Bring it on. There’s no way the Sun Devils will let something like a little frozen precipitation […]

  • The road less traveled? Suns keep rolling in win over Pacers

    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 […]
  • ASU opens season with (close) win

    TEMPE, AZ — It got a little too close for comfort late in the 2nd half, but Herb Sendek’s Arizona State Sun Devils opened the 2011-12 season with a 78- 72 win over Montana State at Wells Fargo Arena. The free throw line was the Sun Devils’ best friend on Friday, as they connected on […]
  • Ray Horton hoping for ‘Jordan Rules’ with Patrick Peterson

    Patrick Peterson is already one of the best punt returners in the NFL, and that’s great. However, the Cardinals selected him No. 5 overall because he was a standout cornerback at LSU, and they’re hoping he can be a shutdown kind of player at the pro level. Peterson has shown flashes, but has been held […]
