BirdsFan.com - A Philadelphia Eagles...:
Each week I try to sit down with a blogger from the opposing team and take a closer look at the upcoming matchup for the week. This time around, I was lucky enough to speak with Scott Allen of RaisingZona.com about the upcoming game with the Cardinals.
Right off the bat I have to ask him about his thoughts on Kevin Kolb. I also ask him about how rookie Patrick Peterson has played so far this year, a player a lot of Eagles fans were very high on. After looking at some individual players, we look more at the matchup and we find out that Scott doesn’t have a whole lot of confidence in his Cardinals. In the end, his final score prediction reflects this.
BirdsFan: I have to ask you about Kevin Kolb. Were you supportive of the Cardinals making the move for him? What are your thoughts about Kolb now?
RaisingZona: Absolutely supportive and still am. He’s better than what we had last season and needs to be given time to get it right. I keep preaching patience. I’ve always said that ...

We look back on a previous article, update the numbers, and discuss whether it was the right move for the Arizona Cardinals to trade what they did for Kevin Kolb.
It's hard to find a winner yet in the Cardinals trade with the Eagles for quarterback Kevin Kolb.
It's too early to declare a winner in the trade but quarterback Kevin Kolb has yet to live up to expectations.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb likely won’t play this Sunday against his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles. Kolb still hasn’t been able to get on the practice field this week because of a toe injury. John Skelton will start for the second straight week in his absence. Skelton had a [...]
Already pulling double duty as the Cardinals' starting right corner and primary punt returner, first-round draft pick Patrick Peterson can be expected to become a growing force in spot situations on offense, Pro Football Weekly hears. "They've gone that route before with 'DRC' (ex-Cardinal Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie), Antrel Rolle and Adrian Wilson," said...
The St. Louis Rams' defense had its best day of the season last weekend. After Patrick Peterson's 99-yard punt return in overtime at Arizona, it was lost in the shuffle.
The Rams defense held the Cardinals to 262 total yards in the 19-13 loss. The Cardinals converted just two of their 10 third-down plays.
Two weeks ago in a 31-21 victory over New Orleans, the Rams gave...
The memory of the Cardinals flying into Baltimore a few weeks ago and nearly knocking off the Ravens is still fresh to me, so I must admit my perspective of the 2-6 team from Arizona coming into Philly this weekend is deeply biased. All I know for sure about the Cardinals as a threat to the Eagles' chance to rebound to a 4-5 record on Sunday is: Kevin Kolb will not be pitching...
Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said Saturday night that the only way quarterback Kevin Kolb would play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles would be in a backup role.
Though the Kevin Kolb experiment has yet to produce for the Cardinals, running back Beanie Wells have come into his own during his third NFL season. Rushing for 526 yards through seven games, Wells’ production has slipped a bit lately, as he plays through a bone bruise in his knee. Per a source with knowledge…
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka and Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson have been honored as the NFC's top players for Week 9 of the NFL season.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka and Cardinals return man Patrick Peterson have been named the NFC’s players of the week. Rodgers had the kind of extraordinary day that’s becoming the norm for him: He completed 21 of 26 passes for 247 yards, with four touchdowns and no interceptions, while also running for…
