The Arizona Cardinals offense has been bad this season, but never worse than it was on Sunday. Its performance in the 7-6 loss to the New York Jets was among the worst in the team's history, and that's saying something for a franchise that's had a lot of bad Sundays. The team had five first downs, tied for fewest in franchise history, was 0 for 15 on third-down conversions and gained 137 yards, 40 of them on a fake punt. The Cardinals gained 22 yards in the second half. Still, coach Ken Whisenhunt stubbornly stayed with rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley, refusing to reinsert John Skelton, benched by the coach three games ago. Now the Arizona losing streak has reached eight games, matching the franchise's longest in 68 years. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL

Kolb the Cards' only hope now, in near future

TEMPE, Ariz. At the risk of stating the obvious, the Cardinals need quarterback Kevin Kolb to play. Now. Not to save the season; thats already gone. To save morale. To save coach Ken Whisenhunts job. To keep alive whatever shred of hope remains for this franchise. We have no idea how much pain Kolb is still experiencing. He just smiles and repeats the same vague answers when we...

Cardinals Release TE Todd Heap

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Arizona Cardinals have released TE Todd Heap. Heap, 32, has been inactive for 10 straight games, despite the fact that he’s no longer dealing with issues related to a previous knee injury that he suffered.

Larry Fitzgerald on Cardinals offense: ‘I have to laugh to keep from crying’

When asked about the Arizona Cardinals offense, Larry Fitzgerald told the Arizona Republic, “I have no words, I have to laugh to keep from crying.”While the defense has played well this year, the offense has been abysmal and it doesn’t seem like there is any improvement coming anytime soon.  Forgetting about their quarterback play, their offensive line can’t even block...

Lindley, Cards struggle again in 7-6 loss to Jets

Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt considered a quarterback change before sticking with the struggling Ryan Lindley. The argument for a switch - as the New York Jets did with Mark Sanchez - was compelling during the Cardinals 7-6 loss on Sunday, their eighth straight defeat. Lindley had a miserable game: 10 for 31 for only 72 yards, one interception and a dismal 28.0 quarterback...

Mark Sanchez threw a pick to Arizona’s Patrick Petersen who made a circus catch

  The New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals are engaging in a game to see who can score the least amount of points in the most embarrassing way. Mark Sanchez actually threw I decent ball (I couldn’t believe it either) but that wasn’t enough for Arizona’s cornerback Patrick Petersen to snatch it right out of the New York Jets’ wide receivers hands. Petersen, formally of LSU...

Larry Fitzgerald No Longer A Dependable Fantasy Option

At one time it seemed that few players were more reliable in terms of fantasy football production than Larry Fitzgerald. Shockingly though, Fitz now belongs on your bench. Ken Whisenhunt and Ryan Lindley saw to that. Fitzgerald hasn't been the same this season but he was at least solid, until Lindley was named the starter for some ungodly reason.
