Found September 19, 2012 on NESN.com:
The Patriots looked out of sync offensively all game on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, and it cost them, as the Cardinals surprised the Pats with a 20-18 win. According to an opposing coach, the New England offense played a hand in, well, slowing the New England offense. ProFootballTalk.com points out that Arizona defensive coordinator Ray Horton is now saying that the Patriots were tipping their hand offensively on Sunday, and the Cardinals were able to exploit that. "Everything that we did was based on what had they did last year and what we thought they were going to do...

NFL week 3 predictions Philadelphia vs Arizona: Are the Cards Legit?

The NFL week 3 predictions look difficult with so many teams that have yet to be considered legitimate. It also offers a chance to look at a very popular handicapping angle (more on this later). After all the Philadelphia Eagles are 2-0 on the season, but they have a slew of turnovers and have won both of their games by one point. Unexpectedly the Cardinals are 2-0, but are they...

Arizona Cardinals: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#23)

Last week: 23 (+7) Record: 2-0 The Cardinals are one of only 6 undefeated teams left in the NFL, but they’re by far the weakest of the bunch. They’ve been outgained in each of their first 2 games, but won anyway, and have a negative yards per play differential and are tied with Jacksonville for the worst yards per play rate at 4.2. They’ve got a nice defense, but I still don’t...

This Is Not A John Skelton Post

Darnell Dockett: Ay! Ay, Kobe! Let me talk at you a second. Kevin Kolb: Kolb. Dockett: Huh? Kolb: My last name is Kolb. Pronounced cobb, like corn on the cobb. Dockett: That right? Aw damn, that’s my bad, Kolb. Hey, I gotta tell you something. I know this Sunday means a lot to you. I heard you a Philly boy. That’s your hometown. Kolb: I’m not actually from Philadelphia....

Eagles giving Kevin Kolb and the Cardinals a big opportunity

Playing a former team always gives players an extra bit of motivation in the week leading up to gameday. Playing a former team that also bailed on you as a player gives you even more of a kick in the rear. This weekend, the Arizona Cardinals are matched up against the Philadelphia Eagles, Kevin Kolb's former team. Life hasn't exactly been easy for Kolb since being...

Emphasis on special teams pays off for Cardinals

Since 2008, the Cardinals have blocked 15 kicks, more than any other team in the NFL. They've blocked so many, in fact, that they almost expect to make a big play every game. "It's a little bit like blood in the water for sharks," kicker Jay Feely said. "You get a little taste and you want more." There are a handful of reasons for the Cardinals success...

Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals: Week 3 NFL Pick

Philadelphia Eagles (2-0) at Arizona Cardinals (2-0) Believe it or not, this is a matchup of 2-0 teams. Philadelphia being 2-0 isn’t that farfetched, but anyone who told you that they had Arizona starting 2-0, with a week 2 clash in New England on the schedule, is either lying or the biggest Arizona homer in the world or didn’t look at the schedule or some mix of all three. No...

Leach: Youth a factor with inconsistency

WASHINGTON STATE COACH Mike Leach generally has an interesting way of stating his thoughts. Sometimes that requires clarification. Leach was asked about his “tent over circus” statement, his thoughts on the development of a defensive lineman and, of course, the Pac-12 story of the week – injuries – during Tuesday’s Pac-12 coaches conference call.

Cardinals QB Kolb set for first start vs. Eagles

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By ROB MAADDI AP Pro Football Writer Kevin Kolb waited three years to replace Donovan McNabb as the starting quarterback for the Eagles only to keep the job just one half. Two years later, he has a chance to prove they gave up on him too soon. ''I'm trying to prepare myself, make sure I'm not too excited, too hyped,'' Kolb...

Eagles Defense Has One Task in Week 3: Stop Larry Fitzgerald

Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images Attention Juan Castillo: Whatever you do this week, make sure Larry Fitzgerald's whereabouts are accounted for on every single snap he's on the field.  And make sure you relay this to Nnamdi, DRC, Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman as well. In case you didn't realize, Larry Fitzgerald absolutely loves playing the Eagles.  We all know he's one...

2-0? Yes, 2-0. On to Arizona.

    We are witnessing the first 2-0 start since 2004, two outstanding defensive displays, and the ablility to win games late. Except for turnovers and penalties, our Philadelphia Eagles gave us reasons for optimism against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
