Mike Leach Would Like Your Careful Consideration

It took less that 24 hours since the announcement of Houston Nutt’s firing for Mike Leach to put Ole Miss on formal notice tha the is interested in coaching in Oxford.  This comes after Nutt himself went on The Tim Brando show this morning and all but endorsed Leach as a candidate for the job.

Reports: Cardinals QB Kolb unlikely to face Eagles

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb is unlikely to play in Sunday's game against his former team. Both ESPN's Adam Schefter and's Jason LaCanfora detailed on Tuesday that Kolb will likely miss this weekend's game versus the Philadelphia Eagles due to his turf toe injury.

Arizona Cardinals Prepare for Philadelphia Eagles

The Arizona Cardinals are heading east again.  This time they face the 3-5 Philadelphia Eagles.  Before the season began if you told me the Eagles would have only a one-game lead on the Cards for the better record, I would have believed you.  However it would not been with 2-6 and 3-5 records respectively.  I was thinking more like 6-2, 7-1 records at this point. … [visit site...
