St. Louis Rams
Arizona will roll the dice this week with rookie Ryan Lindley at quarterback, a decision that may just about finish off their playoff hopes if it backfires.Not that they have a lot of choice in the matter with Kevin Kolb still recovering and John Skelton looking lost behind an offensive line that has given up a league-leading 44 sacks.Jeff Fisher and the Rams will be looking to forget last week’s game against the low-flying Jets and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Fisher pull out a few more trick plays from his book.So, who can we trust this week?QuarterbacksBad offensive line, rookie quarterback, and a struggling Larry Fitzgerald make Ryan Lindley a start for only the most desperate of owners. He might finish with his first NFL touchdown pass if the Rams focus on stopping Arizona’s running game, but we can definitely expect a turnover or two as well. There is a good chance Sam Bradford will be without wide receiver Danny Amendola again for this game and Arizona comes into the game r...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Arizona Cardinals have announced that quarterback Ryan
Lindley will make his first start this weekend against the St. Louis Rams due
to Kevin Kolb’s lingering rib injury and John Skelton’s ineffective play.
The Cardinals listed Kolb as questionable to play Sunday, as
he’s been limited at practice all week due to his rib injury. It’s not clear if
he’ll be available...
"Will the Rams beat the Cardinals again? It can be done but since the Rams didn't even win a single divisional game last year, the statistics are not in favor of a sweep. Of course, the Rams have new coaches and new players on board. I give the Rams a slight edge in this one but am not holding my breath for them to win."Someone please give me a plate so I can eat my...
Cardinals rookie QB Ryan Lindley was disastrous in his first NFL start Sunday, completing 31-of-52 for 312 yards but throwing four interceptions with zero touchdowns.Fantasy Spin:Larry Fitzgerald only had three catches on 12 targets and probably can't wait for the season to end.
It has been no secret that the Arizona Cardinals have had a quarterback competition all year long. Although John Skelton was named the Week 1 starter, soon he and Kevin Kolb began battling injuries and it became a week-to-week decision on who would start at quarterback. Now that the season in past the mid-point and the Cardinals are on their third quarterback of the year, Ryan...
Janoris Jenkins became the first player in Rams history and the first NFL rookie since 1960 to return two interceptions for touchdowns in the same game and St. Louis dominated the second half to hand the Arizona Cardinals their seventh loss in a row, 31-17 on Sunday.
Arizona rookie Ryan Lindley was intercepted four times in his first NFL start.
Jenkins' returns of 36 and 39...
TEMPE, Ariz. With coach Ken Whisenhunts announcement Wednesday that rookie Ryan Lindley will start Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, we asked a veteran Cardinals reporter if it was time to craft a Lindley opus for his audience.
Not yet, he said, smiling.
The response wasnt intended as a slight on Lindley. Rather, it was born of wisdom and experience. Lindley will be the fifth...
Either Janoris Jenkins was really good on Sunday, or the Cardinals’ quarterback situation has reached an all-time low. It looked like it was actually a little bit of both.
The Rams’ rookie cornerback intercepted Cardinals rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley twice, and he took both picks back for touchdowns. The first appeared to be a good read by Jenkins — jumping LaRod Stephens...
GLENDALE, Ariz. The starting quarterback cant stay healthy, the backup quarterback cant hit a wide-open freight car and the third-string QB is astonishingly adept at hitting opposing defenders.
Sounds like the trailer to an awful cable TV series, no?
Unfortunately, its not fantasy. Its macabre reality for the Cardinals. And the grisly addendum is that there are no backups left...
GLENDALE, Az. -- A season that started with so much promise has completely disintegrated for the Arizona Cardinals. That's how Sunday's 31-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams began and ended, too. The Cardinals flexed their muscles early behind rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley in his first NFL start, but when things began to unravel, it was too much to overcome as Arizona dropped...
(AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals haven't been the same since they faced the St. Louis Rams back in October.
Now Arizona will likely look very different.
The Cardinals will try to end their six-game losing streak when they give rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley his first career start Sunday against the visiting Rams, who are winless in their last five.
Arizona (4-6) was 4-0 before...
The Rams ended their five game turnover drought with four interceptions of Cardinals rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley on their way to a convincing win in Arizona.Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins, a second-round pick in this year’s draft, returned two of the interceptions for touchdowns as St Louis scored 17 unanswered points to sink Arizona’s slim playoff hopes.In what turned...
When the Rams last met the Arizona Cardinals, the birds stood atop the NFC West with a surprising 4-0 record. However, when we talked to Seth Cox of TSHQ at the time, he was not yet ready to start opening champagne bottles.
As it turns out, he was right to put the celebrations on hold. Since that Thursday night primetime matchup, the Cardinals have lost six games and two quarterbacks...
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Cardinals' game against the St. Louis Rams represented a microcosm of Arizona's season. Something that started with so much promise completely disintegrated. The Cardinals flexed their muscles early Sunday behind rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley, making his first NFL start, but when things began to unravel, it was too much to overcome. Arizona lost...
