For those who wrote and opined at the beginning of the season that the Cardinals have a better chance of winning with John Skelton at quarterback than Kevin Kolb, we just dont see it.When you sift through the detritus of Sundays 21-14 loss in Minnesota, you will notice a quarterback who completed 69.4 percent of his passes (25 of 36) for 266 yards and a touchdown. You will see he was sacked seven times and conclude, "Ah, if Skelton had just had more help up front from that shaky offensive line, he might have been able to engineer another fourth-quarter comeback."And you would be wrong.More than half of Skeltons passing yards came in the fourth quarter after the Vikings had grabbed a stranglehold on the game with a 21-7 lead -- and yes, 21-7 is a stranglehold against the Cardinals, who average 17.7 points a game. More than half of Skeltons yards came against a defense that was content to allow him the underneath completion as the clock wound down on Minnesotas fifth win of ...
BEST OF MAXIM
This is a big game for the Arizona Cardinals. They've lost two in a row after a stellar 4-0 start. Their offensive line is a mess. Their starting quarterback, Kevin Kolb, will miss several weeks with a chest/rib injury. The Red Birds need a win to keep pace with the 49ers in the NFC West. It won't be easy. The Vikings have a very balanced squad and the Metrodome is always...
John Skelton isn’t reminding anyone of Kurt Warner these days. Cardinals fans would settle for Matt Leinart at this point. I’m certainly not suggesting that Skelton should be in fantasy lineups, but don’t go crazy and bench Larry Fitzgerald.. First of all, he’s replacing Kevin Kolb. It’s not like the Cardinals are taking a huge step back. They are going from airplane food...
For Arizona Cardinals defensive end Nick Eason, the disease of breast cancer hit home with him after his mother passed away from it back in August.
Eason decided to honor her memory by helping to destroy breast cancer...or at least a car with breast cancer sprayed on the hood.
Check out Nick and some folks destroying the car with a sledge hammer:

Free agent QB Vince Young is set to work out for the Cardinals on Tuesday.Fantasy Spin:Young was cut from Buffalo during the preseason. Young would likely serve as a backup for John Skelton until Kevin Kolb is heatlhy again. He won't have any fantasy value.
SPOKANE -- Mike Leach made his in-season Spokane Cougar Club luncheon debut on Monday and told a full house that the Washington State Cougars need to exorcise the ghosts of seasons past. He also talked a little recruiting, specifically on the o-line needs for the 2013 class.

This Arizona Cardinals season has been marked with both ups and downs this year while they have dealt with their many problems. Coming into the year they were switching between two quarterbacks, and injuries have thus far been the deciding factor on who has gotten the snaps. The Cardinals have also had to deal with a very below average offensive line that has given up the most...
Before the season began, back when we were still polishing the dust of our crystal balls, did any of us see either the Vikings or the Cardinals having 4-2 records heading into Week 7?Come on now, don’t lie.I admit before the season began I made some jokes about Minnesota in my Fantasy Football team preview. I wish I could take them back. Really, I do.But the fact is the Vikings...
