Cardinals' Bowles proving doubters wrong

TEMPE, Ariz. -- There were more than a few raised eyebrows in Tempe when Cardinals coach Bruce Arians named Todd Bowles his defensive coordinator this offseason. To begin with, Bowles was replacing Ray Horton, who had turned an underachieving defense into one of the league's better units. But Bowles was also coming off a disastrous run as the Eagles defensive coordinator in 2012...

Andre Ellington is a very solid fantasy football pick up in week 6

Andre Ellington’s skill set is different from other’s in the NFL.  The former Clemson Tiger was a terror in college, but had a poor pro-day which eventually cost him his draft fall. He has great explosion but doesn’t have as much power as some backs in the NFL.  He’s a smaller back — he stands […]

Arizona Cardinals defense led by offseason acquisitions

The Arizona Cardinals had only seven sacks coming into last weekend. A dismal start to the season left fans wondering which Cardinals team would show up, but by recording seven sacks, Karlos Dansby and the Arizona Cardinals defense did something they haven’t done in over 26 years. The last time the Cardinals recorded seven sacks they still played in St. Louis, and they did it...

Arians says he 'loves' Arizona's defensive image

Bruce Arians has 21 years of experience as an offensive coach in the NFL, yet his Arizona Cardinals are developing an image as a team that thrives on its defense. The offense? Well, it still needs some work. The Cardinals stifled the Carolina Panthers with a dominating second half in a 22-6 victory on Sunday. The Panthers' Cam Newton was sacked a career-worst seven times and...

Cardinals’ TE Rob Housler hoping to shake off early errors

The Cardinals called tight end Rob Housler’s number last week against the Panthers but he didn’t answer. Housler dropped one pass. He didn’t see another thrown ball because he and quarterback Carson Palmer had a miscommunication on a route. On another play Housler lined up wrong resulting in a penalty for an illegal formation. It was not a good Sunday for Housler who isn’t...

Arizona Cardinals: 2013 Week 6 NFL Power Rankings (#20)

Last week: 20 (+0) Record: 3-2 The Cardinals are 3-2 right now. That isn’t a huge shock. They had an over/under for their win total of 5.5 and teams with totals under 6 hit the over about 2/3rds of the time (Oakland and Jacksonville also had totals under 6 this year). A lot of times, bad teams are better than people think and I think the Cardinals have proved that. That being said...
