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 ask. Weve never had ribs detach from our sternum, and were pretty sure we never want to experience it in the interest of building our knowledge base.
We also have no idea if Kolb will be ready this week.
I sure hope so, Whisenhunt said at his Monday press conference.
After watching Ryan Lindley on Sunday, can we get an amen?
Were not suggesting Kolb should come back if the body isnt willing. We dont pretend to understand another persons pain threshold or the inherent risks of such a move.
But in case you hadnt noticed, the Cardinals have lost eight straight games. The NFC West is leaving them in the ...
BEST OF MAXIM
TEMPE, Ariz. Todd Heap wont get a chance to write a final, storybookchapter to his football career in Arizona. The Cardinals released the injury-plagued local icon on Tuesday, ending his tenure with the Cardinals just shortof two seasons -- and well short of expectations.The Cards replaced Heap with tight end Kory Sperry, a former San DiegoCharger who was released at the end of training...
The Arizona Cardinals started out 4-0 and it looked as if the red birds had arrived. However, 8 straight losses has sent the feel good story to an almost tearjerker. “You gotta laugh to keep from crying,”
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. Heap apparently hasn’t been able to practice at full speed, which is why the team had held him out of game-action.
It’s hard to imagine...
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...
Former Baltimore Ravens TE is now a former Arizona Cardinals TE as well. Reports are out today that the Cardinals are parting ways with the two-time Pro Bowler in the midst of the their downward spiral. Heap was selected in the 1st round of the 2001 NFL draft by the Baltimore Ravens, where he played until signing a two-year deal with the Cardinals just beofre the 2011 season.
Arizona safety Kerry Rhodes has confirmed he had a run-in with teammate Darnell Dockett at the end of Sunday's game against the New York Jets.
Rhodes says in an email released by the Cardinals that there was an on-field ''disagreement'' but emphatically denies a report that Dockett spit in his face and says the two have agreed to move on.
The dispute reportedly...
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...
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...
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...
Before the 2010 season, the New York Jets traded safety Kerry Rhodes to the Arizona Cardinals for a pair of late-round draft picks. Jets coach Rex Ryan later called Rhodes "selfish" in his book.Rhodes was plenty selfish Sunday against his former team. Rhodes intercepted Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez twice and forced a fumble in the Cardinals' 7-6 loss. He also had six...
