According to Don Banks of SI.com, it looks like Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Wisenhunt will be fired after six seasons in the desert. General manager Rod Graves may also get fired or given a demotion instead. The Cardinals’ collapse after a 4-0 start this season is expected to lead to head coach Ken Whisenhunt and the team parting ways after six seasons, and general manager...
Don Banks of SI.com reported that Cardinals head coach Ken Wisenhunt is likely gone in Arizona, while Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that he’s expected to be back for next season. All we can do now is wait things out and see what does or does not happen to Wisenhunt. I continue to believe it would be unfair to fire Wisenhunt who’s had a horrible offensive line and quarterback...
Arizona's Patrick Peterson is headed to the Pro Bowl for the second time in his two seasons in the NFL.
This one, he said, means more because he has been chosen as a cornerback. Last year, as a rookie, he made the Pro Bowl as a punt returner.
Patrick, as confident as they come in pro football, says he expected the selection and considers it a reward for the hard work he has...
In a miserable season for his Arizona Cardinals, defensive coordinator Ray Horton is nonetheless a rising star in NFL coaching circles.
Expect Horton to be interviewed for some head coaching positions this offseason. Perhaps even in Arizona, should the Bidwill family decide to fire coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Horton was saying all the right things Friday after the team's final practice...
Brian Hoyer is expected to get his first NFL start this week after being claimed a few weeks ago by the Cardinals. We had said on the site that this move would be coming, because Hoyer is a gamer and they will want to see what he can do for them before the end of the season.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Wednesday the former Michigan State quarterback and New England backup will start...
Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports reports that “word around the league” is that Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt is safe from receiving the pink slip this offseason.
Cole adds that Chicago’s Lovie Smith and Detroit’s Jim Schwartz are also likely to be retained for another season.
Previous reports mentioned that the Cardinals had at one point thought about replacing Whisenhunt...
The Arizona Cardinals will give Brian Hoyer his first NFL start less than three weeks after the team claimed him off waivers from Pittsburgh.
It is only the matter of a few more days before the expected firing of head coach Andy Reid from the Philadelphia Eagles. Reid is currently the longest tenured head coach in the NFL, a streak which will end in about 72 hours or so. Reid will land a job with any team he wants after his release. He’s a good coach but a change is needed in Philadelphia where the organization needs...
The Arizona Cardinals' quarterback situation has been a disaster this season.
Guard Adam Snyder, who played his first seven NFL seasons in San Francisco before moving to Arizona this year, told Bay Area reporters Wednesday he would tell management to go after Alex Smith if he becomes available in the offseason, according to the Sacramento Bee.
"If someone asked me...
NinersDigest’s Craig Massei and AZRedReport’s Brad Wilbricht go Behind Enemy Lines to take an inside look at 49ers/Cardinals. How did Arizona’s season disintegrate after a 4-0 start? Will any of the Cards’ four starting QBs this year be back in 2013? Why hasn’t the NFL’s 12th-ranked defense made the Cards a better team? Is Ken Whisenhunt on his way out as Arizona coach...
The Arizona Cardinals will visit the San Francisco 49ers in Week 17. FOX will carry this game which has a 4:25 pm EST kickoff.
San Francisco will look to win their second consecutive NFC West title against a team which has never found the right quarterback.
What is the point spread in the 49ers and Cardinals game? The 49ers are 16.5 point favorites against the Cardinals. The over...
Arizona Cardinals (5-10) at San Francisco 49ers (10-4-1)
It’s usually a smart thing to take well coached teams off a loss. They’re generally extra focused in a bounce back game the following week. Bill Belichick is 35-20 ATS off a loss since 2000. Mike McCarthy is 22-13 ATS in that spot since 2006. Mike Tomlin is 17-13 ATS in that spot since 2007. Sean Payton is 20-12 ATS in...
Arizona running back Beanie Wells is using next week's game against San Francisco as an "audition for a job somewhere else."Fantasy Spin:It's pretty clear Wells wants out after another frustrating season for the listless Cardinals. Wells has been a fantasy disappointment this season (234 yards, five TD in eight games) but perhaps playing for a new team will rejuvenate him.
