TEMPE, Ariz. Ryan Williams isnt changing much this week as he prepares to become the featured back in the Cardinals offense when they host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium. Hydrate more, do a little bit more cardio, Williams said. Oh yeah, and Im doing some Epsom salt baths. The latter could help reduce the swelling and pain from the added hits Williams...

2012 NFL Standings: Arizona Cardinals Being Disrespected Compared To Other Undefeated Teams?

The Arizona Cardinals are off to a 3-0 start in the young 2012 NFL season, along with just two other teams. Yet although they have the same record, all anyone wants to really talk about are the Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans, who are the only other teams who are also off to a 3-0 start.

Arizona Cardinals are imposters

They are the story of the league, at least in terms of an on on the field product around the league.

Miami Dolphins at Arizona Cardinals: Week 4 NFL Pick

Miami Dolphins (1-2) at Arizona Cardinals (3-0) The Cardinals are 3-0 right now, but they’re incredibly overrated. Do you really trust anyone on this offense other than Larry Fitzgerald? The defense is great, but I don’t think they’re well rounded enough to make the playoffs in a loaded NFC. They have a negative yards per play differential and rank tied for 30th in offensive...
