Found August 10, 2012 on Razzball Football:
For yet another season, Razzball will be interviewing local NFL beat writers for some in-depth actual football knowledge to sway some insight in our fantasy football knowledge.  Keep your eye out for an interview for every NFL team through the summer and check out each one on the “2012 Fantasy Football Team Previews” link.  This installment comes courtesy of Tyler Nickel from Arizona Cardinals blog Revenge of the Birds: 1) Larry Fitzgerald is obviously one of the best wide receivers in the league, but he need a friend to throw him the ball.  It’s been a little too much like Charlie Brown depending on getting the ball from Lucy.  Arizona opens with Kevin Kolb as the starter – do you see him holding onto the job the whole year if healthy? I think that as long as Kevin Kolb can stay healthy, he should hold onto the starting QB job for the whole year. We have to remember that he didn’t have an offseason last year and I think that with some extra time, he should be much improved. We just...

Arizona Cardinals 2013 Franchise Tag Candidates

S Kerry Rhodes I only list Rhodes because the Cardinals don’t have another even remotely good candidate for the tag. Safeties have been franchised 4 times in the last 2 seasons because of how cheap the safety franchise tag is (just 6.2 million in 2012). However, Rhodes isn’t the level of Michael Huff, Tyvon Branch, Dashon Goldson, and Michael Griffin, all of whom have been franchised...

How good can the Cardinals defense be?

Every player in the Cardinals locker room knows Ray Hortons pedigree. They know he spent seven seasons under famed Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau mastering one of the NFLs most successful and most enduring schemes. But as Horton installed a similarly modeled defense last season in his first year as the Cards coordinator, he refrained from wearing that badge...

Few signs of progress for Cards, quarterbacks

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said before the Cardinals' second preseason game Friday night in Kansas City that he wanted to see progress. Well, Kevin Kolb didn't get hurt. Does that qualify as progress? It was tough to find other signs. Despite the return of safety Adrian Wilson and defensive tackle Darnell Dockett to the lineup, the Cardinals defense tackled poorly for a second...

The Mike Leach Bobblehead is real and extremely hard to obtain

This Mike Leach Bobblehead photo was recently released by the official Washinton State Cougar’s athletic account. Rumors of a Mike Leach Bobblehead day surfaced a few weeks ago verses the Cal Bears. Now we are finding out that they will only be available for the first 10,000 fans who show up. Expect them to disappear within minutes. Anyone willing to try and snag me one of these...

Kevin Kolb’s preseason quarterback rating is 0.0

AP Photo The good news for quarterback Kevin Kolb and the Arizona Cardinals is that he finished the game without getting injured.  The bad news is that he still doesn’t look like a franchise quarterback. So far this preseason Kolb has only complete 2 of 9 passes for 25 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.  That gives him a quarterback rating of 0.0. The good news for...

NFL Preseason: Kansas City Chiefs Take Down Cardinals

Kevin Kolb is making this quarterback situation in Arizona very easy to resolve. The way he has played in the first two preseason games for the Arizona Cardinals, it's John Skelton's job to lose. Even Ryan Lindley could move into the no. 2 quarterback spot on the depth chart by the time the season is over. Kolb went 1-for-5 for 21 yards to make his total preseason numbers...

DAY 9 PART II: Leach keeping QB job open

PULLMAN--WSU responded from their most sluggish practice of fall camp with an energetic two-hour session on Friday. And Mike Leach isn't ready to end the starting QB question. Jeff Tuel and Connor Halliday split reps with the first-team offense, each showing off respective strengths on a day owned by the O. The day even featured one of the quarterbacks getting into a skirmish...

Cardinals vs. Chiefs

There generally aren’t many things you can learn from the first NFL exhibition game of the year. But in Kansas City, there are three questions I want answered Friday night when the Chiefs host the Arizona Cardinals at Arrowhead Stadium.

Cougs OL taking big loss?

MIKE LEACH DOESN’T discuss or give out information on injuries. But WSU looks to have suffered a fall camp blow on the offensive line. Two sources close to the situation tell CF.C that an o-tackle listed as a starter on the most recent depth chart looks to be lost for the season.

Out of Bounds: Cardinals vs. Chiefs Review

With their first preseason game under their belts, the Kansas City Chiefs outlasted the Arizona Cardinals 27-17, so who stood out and what does this win mean?
