  • ESPN analyst praises Skelton, says he’ll be fine against Eagles

    John Skelton completed 20 of 35 passes for 222 yards and one touchdown Sunday against the Rams. Those stats, while not particularly impressive, may not tell the entire story of how well the second-year pro played. “I was impressed by John Skelton,” ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo. “When […]
  • ASU to battle weather, Washington State

    It’s going to be cold. It may even snow. “I’m excited,” said quarterback Brock Osweiler. He may be the only one. Osweiler grew up in Kalispell, Montana about five hours from Pullman, Washington where—according to weather.com, it’s expected to be in the low 30s with a good chance of rain and show showers Saturday night […]
  • Sun Devils in the Palouse, and Week 11 in the Pac-12

    With the constant media blitz coming out of State College, Pennsylvania surrounding the Jerry Sandusky mess and Joe Paterno firing, actual football has been put on the back burner by many. Of course, not by everyone–most of the Penn State community puts football above everything else, including morality, but I digress. It’s another full slate […]
  • Andy Reid: Kolb needs more time just like Kurt Warner

    Mentioning Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb in the same sentence as former Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner is an unlikely comparison within the state of Arizona these days but Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid managed to give it a shot. According to Mike Sando of ESPN.com, Andy Reid said that Kolb just needs more time, much […]
  • Cardinals look forward to playing old friend in Philly

    When Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald lines up against the Philadelphia Eagles this week he might see a familiar face across from him, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. “It will be fun to compete, he’s one of the best athletes I ever went against and it will be fun to see him,” Fitzgerald said. Rodgers-Cromartie was part of […]
  • John Skelton preparing for another start

    As Kevin Kolb recovers from dealing with a turf toe injury, backup quarterback John Skelton is preparing to start Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Skelton is coming off a home victory against the St. Louis Rams, but going on the road in Philadelphia will present a much greater challenge. “It will be a hostile environment, […]
  • Brown says Paterno’s legacy will be tarnished

    The horrible saga unfolding in State College, Pennsylvania has far-reaching ramifications, most of which have yet to occur. But in a major development on Wednesday, legendary head coach Joe Paterno announced that he will step down from the post that he’s held since 1966 at the end of the season. Arizona Cardinals offensive tackle Levi […]
  • Kolb is improving but may run out of time to play vs. Eagles

    Kevin Kolb wants to play every week, but this Sunday’s game may carry a little more importance. The Cardinals are traveling to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles, the team that traded the QB to Arizona before the season began. “It’s a big game for me, it’s a big game for us, and I want […]
  • ESPN insider: Washington State is trap game for ASU

    This season ASU was finally living up to some hype, the sloppy, mistake-ridden team from the past long gone. The Sun Devils were in the driver’s seat in the Pac-12 South needing only to win out in order to play in the first Pac-12 championship. The road appeared to be smooth, with only UCLA, Washington […]
  • ASU’s Bo Moos wants a win, needs a sack vs. WSU

    Mike Marcisz was the first. He was the loudest. “Your face a little cold, Bo?” Then, one teammate after another started piling on. “I lost a bet,” the now shaven Bo Moos explained. The ASU senior defensive tackle needed four tackles, one for a loss against UCLA Saturday in order to keep his beard. He […]
  • Diamondbacks bring back Willie Bloomquist

    Willie Bloomquist, the first Arizona State Sun Devil to play for the Arizona Diamondbacks, will be back with the team. The 33-year-old Bloomquist reportedly agreed to a two-year contract with the team after declining his player’s option, and will make $3.8 million over the life of the contract. While that may seem like a lot […]
  • Thanks Joe, but you gotta go

    The last year in college football has been ripe with scandal. There’s been the Cam Newton recruitment investigation. We’ve had suspensions and a resignation over discounted tattoos in Columbus. There was the name-dropping of 72 athletes who received improper benefits from a super booster at Miami. They all pale in comparison to what’s unfolded at […]
  • Arizona Cardinals mid-season report card

    We’re halfway through the 2011 season and the Arizona Cardinals find themselves with a 2-6 record. Some things have gone right for the team but, honestly, more has gone wrong. What does it add up to? Let’s hand out a report card. Vince Marotta Adam Green QB Kevin Kolb is still feeling out his new […]
  • 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. While you may best remember the 2008 NFC Championship game, which the Cards won in Glendale, the former NFC East rivals are as familiar with each other as […]
  • D-backs ink Jakubauskas to minor league deal

  • 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.
