Like the Seahawks and Marshawn Lynch, do you really trust anyone on this offense other than Larry Fitzgerald? The defense is great, but I don’t think they’re well rounded enough to make the playoffs in a loaded NFC. They have a negative yards per play differential and rank tied for 30th in offensive yards per plays. 3-0 is impressive, especially considering who they’ll played, but the Bills started 3-0 last year. Almost every year, there’s a team that gets off to a good start and then fades away and misses the playoffs and makes their believers look dumb (“This Ryan Fitzpatrick is the real deal.” “Rex Grossman is a legitimate franchise quarterback.”).
Winning 3 in a row at any point in a season isn’t that impressive, but when teams do it to start the season, it’s much more noticeable and you get idiots like Michael Silver putting them first in his Power Rankings (Really? Kevin Kolb is going to win the Super Bowl?). This is essentially the same team tha...

The Arizona Cardinals have placed running back Beanie Wells on the NFL's new injured reserve/designated for return list, meaning he won't be able to play in a game until Nov. 25.
Wells was injured in Sunday's 27-6 win over Philadelphia.
The new list requires Wells to stay out of practice until Nov. 7 and prohibits him from playing in a game until the Cardinals are home...
TEMPE, Ariz. Ryan Williams isnt changing much this week as he prepares to become the featured back in the Cardinals offense when they host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium.
Hydrate more, do a little bit more cardio, Williams said. Oh yeah, and Im doing some Epsom salt baths.
The latter could help reduce the swelling and pain from the added hits Williams...
Kevin Kolb seems firmly at the controls in Arizona, riding high with a Cardinals team off to a 3-0 start for the first time in 38 years.
Yet looming is a decision on whether he remains the starter, or the job goes back to John Skelton, who beat out Kolb in the preseason but has been sidelined by a sprained ankle since late in the season opener against Seattle.
Kolb came on to direct...
The Arizona Cardinals have placed oft injured running back Chris ‘Beanie’ Wells on the new ‘designated for return’ Injured Reserve list, meaning that Wells is ineligible to practice with the Cardinals for the next six weeks and cannot return to game action until week 12 at the earliest. While this is just more bad news for Wells, it is excellent news for his successor in...
Cardinals running back Ryan Williams will carry the majority of the rushing workload while Beanie Wells (turf toe) is sidelined.Fantasy Spin:Williams will certain have a golden opportunity to show his stuff and become an every week fantasy starter. The Cardinals aren't going to throw the ball all over the lot, therefore holding down the starting spot could be a huge break for...
They are the story of the league, at least in terms of an on on the field product around the league. While everyone obsesses about the replacement officials and the integrity of the game, the Cardinals have gone out there and won their first three games of the season.
In convincing fashion no less. Seattle, New England and Philly. Three very solid teams that have been beaten...
The first place Arizona Cardinals. It has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Let’s take a look at Arizona’s report card based on their 27-6 thumping of the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday at University of Phoenix Stadium: Offense Grade: B + Finally, the Red Birds showed a semblance of a running game. Ryan Williams had [...]

Miami Dolphins (1-2) at Arizona Cardinals (3-0)
The Cardinals are 3-0 right now, but they’re incredibly overrated. Do you really trust anyone on this offense other than Larry Fitzgerald? The defense is great, but I don’t think they’re well rounded enough to make the playoffs in a loaded NFC. They have a negative yards per play differential and rank tied for 30th in offensive...
I refuse to let this stop the hulk!
The 1-2 Miami Dolphins will look to derail the Arizona Cardinals' undefeated season on Sunday at The University of Phoenix stadium in Arizona.The Dolphins are coming off a heartbreaking 23-20 OT loss to the Jets at home.Running back Reggie Bush was forced to leave the game with a knee injury and his status for this week's matchup against the Cardinals is uncertain.Dolphins...
THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF freshmen long have been a discussion point as Washington State continues through its rebuilding process. That was no different Tuesday morning as coach Mike Leach discussed the contributions some of his younger players have made during his weekly Pac-12 coaches teleconference.
Charles Davis, FOX Sports' lead college football analyst, joins Matt this week to discusses the controversy surrounding the NFL replacement referees and offers his insight on the Arizona Cardinals' 3-0. He also talks about why the SEC continues to be dominant and why he is so impressed with both new head coaches at ASU and Arizona.
Among his observations:
-- On the controversy...

Bogus win aside, do you really trust anyone on this offense aside from Marshawn Lynch? Their offense was stagnant all night on it took some blown calls to even get them into double digits. Russell Wilson was 9 of 20 for 106 yards and a touchdown before that late touchception. That’s not all him, his receiving corps and offensive line aren’t very...
I’m not going to detail the “innacurate reception” as I’m sure that’s been done to death and frankly I’m tired of seeing it, so I’m going to be analyzing another play that popped out to me. Overall, there’s nothing special going on on either side of the ball, the Seahawks are playing a vanilla formation and the Packers counter with a vanilla formation. No crazy...
