BEST OF MAXIM
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer Calais Campbell sat at his locker surrounded by reporters. Leaning against a wooden panel nearby was a framed photograph of his blocked field goal against the St. Louis Rams five weeks ago.
The Rams would have won the game with the kick, but Campbell's block forced overtime, and Arizona won 19-13 on Patrick Peterson's 99...
PULLMAN – Mike Leach comes to Pullman with a reputation for filling up reporters’ notebooks, and he did not disappoint at his first two press conferences. Between his Pullman and Seattle appearances, Washington State’s new football coach entertained more than 1,500 reporters, alums, students and other interested parties with a variety of inspiring, informative and/or humorous...
Were not sure Arizona State will take its cues from former NFL coach, current ESPN analyst and part-time nut job Jon Gruden, but hey, the way the coaching search has gone, why not?
Gruden told ArizonaSports 620 that former South Florida coach Jim Leavitt would be a good hire for ASU. Leavitt is in his first season as linebackers coach with the surprising San Francisco 49ers.

The Cardinals will be starting Kevin Kolb at QB instead of John Skelton this time around against the Niners, so I expect a much different football game.

GLENDALE, Arizona: Round 2 of this NFC West fight has slightly more on the line than the last time these two teams met, a Week 11 victory for San Francisco, 23-7. Arizona (5-7) hosts the 49ers (10-2) and hope to defy the odds once more and pull off an upset, keeping their ever-slim Playoff wish alive.
They need much help from a handful of NFC teams in front of them in the playoff...
Scout.com experts Craig Massei and Brad Wilbricht continue their discussion about the 49ers/Cardinals matchup this weekend. What has gotten into the Cardinals of late and can they actually make the playoffs? What did it mean for the Cardinals to get Kevin Kolb back at quarterback last week? How have the Cardinals turned things around on defense? These Q&As and more inside.
Hot News for C Mike Leach
Call Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals the start of Phase 2 of the 49ers’ season.
Phase 1 was fighting for the NFC West championship, which concluded with a victory over the Rams last Sunday that clinched the title.
Phase 2 covers the final four four games of the regular season before Phase 3, the playoffs.
For the Niners, being successful in Phase 2 might well determine...
