I wish Dennis Green was still the Cardinals’ coach. Then he could shout “we are who they thought we were!” I never believed in them. They’ve never been ranked higher than 15th in these Power Rankings, even when they were 4-0. This is what I said about the Cardinals after their 3-0 start. 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 that finished last year 8-8 and I expect them to finish somewhere around there this year. Bettors should ride the correction.” They ha

It doesn’t look like Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb will be returning to field any time soon.
“Kolb has been doing some light throwing but doesn’t appear close to being ready to play,” writes Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.
Kolb was injured during Week 6′s loss to the Bills when he suffered multiple detached ribs. It would a surprise if he is able to play before...
There was absolutely no beating around the bush on this one. I saw a picture of the girl on BustedCoverage, and from that point on I was quick and decisive. No questioning myself on this one – she was getting posted.
Long story short, the 49ers beat the sh$t out of the Cardinals on Monday Night Football. The only moral victory for the Cardinals was they now own the title of hottest...
After Monday nights 24-3 loss to the division rival San Francisco 49ers, Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt apparently lost his cool, Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic reports.
It wasnt so much that he yelled and screamed or pulled a Buddy Ryan and flipped over a chalkboard in the locker room, it was the message, not the tone.
According to a couple of Cardinals, including...
Embarrassed on Monday night, the Arizona Cardinals are left to try to pick up the pieces of a season that once seemed so promising but now shows signs of a free fall.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt, who endured a six-game losing streak a year ago, is not one to panic and said so in his news conference a day after the Cardinals were manhandled by the San Francisco 49ers 24-3.
It was Arizona...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Daryn Colledge had never been the player asked to do the conference call with the opposing team's local media. After all, as the offensive lineman who protected Brett Favre for two years and Aaron Rodgers for three seasons during his time with the Packers, Colledge wasn't exactly highly requested for those types of interviews.
Now in his second year with...
PULLMAN–The Cougs haven’t won many football games this season, but Mike Leach has won over plenty of reporters with his non-stop collection of lively quotes. Leach’s blunt appraisal of his players doesn’t go over well with some fans, and reporters bristle when he routinely shows up late for press conferences or post-game media sessions. When Leach does arrive, however, it’s...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer Arizona's offensive woes have limited the team's ability to take best advantage of one of the best wide receivers in the game.
A weak offensive line, erratic quarterback play and a largely ineffective running game have meant that defenses can zero in on Larry Fitzgerald more than ever, and he...
New Washington State coach Mike Leach can earn a $75,000 bonus for taking the Cougars to a low-level bowl game.
Or he can earn $100,000 for making a BCS bowl game. Or $25,000 for winning the Apple Cup.
Details of Leach's recently signed five-year contract have been released after public records requests by media. He makes a $2 million base salary and $250,000 in other income...
Kurt Warner, NFL Network analyst and former Cardinals quarterback, joins Matt this week to discuss the halfway point in the NFL season. They talk about the Cardinals' recent struggles and their quarterback situation, if replacing Michael Vick is a good idea, and why playing quarterback is the toughest position in sports. Plus, he comments on why he still has an urge to play and...
The 49ers remained No. 4 in the in this week’s Associated Press Pro32 NFL power rankings after their 24-3 rout of the Arizona Cardinals left them 6-2 with a two-game lead in the NFC West heading into their bye week.
Arizona: The Cardinals hit rock bottom in Week 8, getting shellacked by the 49ers right in their own back yard no less. Of course the road doesn’t get any easier, as they pay a visit to Lambeau Field and the suddenly clicking Packers. The Packers are playing better defense than they did last season, ranking 13th overall in yards allowed per game and are second with a total of...
