Hoyer getting 1st career start just weeks after joining AZ...against SF (yikes) RT @kentsomers Hoyer to start in sf, whiz says— shalise manza young (@shalisemyoung) December 26, 2012I've been all over the Brian Hoyer news. From his trip to Pittsburgh to Arizona. The quarterback situation with the Cardinals is probably the worst we've seen in the NFL in a long time. Yes, it even trumps the Jets with their ineptitude. At least the Jets have quarterbacks people have heard of.The Cardinals started the season with John Skelton, switched to Kevin Kolb, back to Skelton, then inexplicably to rookie Ryan Lindley. Former Patriots back up quarterback, Brian Hoyer, is the latest and last to get the call.Hoyer never started a game for New England, playing behind Brady, but he impressed (at least me) in some of his limited reps during regular season meaningless games. He was cut this off-season, partly due to his contract and partly due to the rise of third round pick Ryan Mallett in his ...

DAYS ARE NUMBERED
Beanie Wells has played his entire career with the Arizona Cardinals, but he doesn't think he'll be back with the team next season.
IN NEED OF LOVING
Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett is known for his funny Twitter account, and he had quite a gem around Christmas.
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...
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...
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...
The Arizona Cardinals will give Brian Hoyer his first NFL start less than three weeks after the team claimed him off waivers from Pittsburgh.
The Arizona Cardinals have placed tight end Rob Housler on injured reserve and promoted wide receiver Kerry Taylor to the active roster.
Housler is the team's third-leading receiver with 45 catches for 417 yards and a touchdown. He injured his shoulder in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Chicago Bears.
Taylor, who grew up in nearby Chandler, Ariz., and played for Arizona State...
It has been a long and grueling season for Darnell Dockett and the rest of the Arizona Cardinals. For many of the team’s players, Christmas likely served as a welcome distraction from a season in which they have lost 10 out of their last 11 games. Dockett, on the other hand, seemed like he was a bit lonely during the holiday season.
On Christmas night, Dockett took to Twitter to...
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.
TEMPE, Ariz. Patrick Peterson was named to the 2012 NFC Pro Bowl roster on Wednesday, becoming the first Cardinal to earn Pro Bowl nods in each of his first two seasons since Vai Sikahema did it in 1986 and 87. He also joined Hall of Famer Rod Woodson as the only two NFL players ever to earn Pro Bowl selections as a returner and as a defensive player.
"It definitely solidifies...
The Arizona Cardinals entered the final week of the season with uncertainty at quarterback.
How fitting for a team that's misery on the field has been defined by poor play at that position.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday he wasn't ready to say whether Brian Hoyer would be the choice, although it seems a pretty good guess considering the problems that Ryan Lindley has...
