THE FIRST 90 SECONDS of Mike Leach’s post game press conference were both fascinating and illuminating. They told you everything you needed to know about why WSU lost to Colorado and sit at 2-2. And it leads to one inescapable conclusion -- the 2012 Cougars need to channel Jason David.

As the Arizona Cardinals gear up for their huge early season showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in Glendale, it will be very interesting to see how well Arizona's much improved defense handles the high-powered offense of Michael Vick and company.
Can they get sustained pressure on Vick and force him into mistakes? Can they contain LeSean McCoy? On the flip side...
STAY POSITIVE. That is the message Washington State coach Mike Leach is emphasizing after Saturday's stunning 35-34 loss against Colorado in the Pac-12 opener at Martin Stadium. Leach discussed that, the 7:30 p.m. Saturday contest against Oregon at CenturyLink Field and the emergence of a couple of freshmen during his Monday teleconference.

Cardinals running back Beanie Wells and defensive end Darnell Dockett were injured in the teams 27-6 victory over Philadelphia.
Wells suffered a toe injury in the second half, and Wells said after the game the toe was bent backward. He suffered a similar injury in college and missed three weeks.
The Cardinals seem optimistic that Dockett's hamstring injury is not serious...
Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald finally turned in a fantasy effort worthy of his draft price Sunday against the Eagles, catching nine passes for 114 yards and a touchdown.Fantasy Spin:Fitzgerald came in with just 67 yards receiving on five catches and zero touchdowns in the first two games, but Kevin Kolb looked great Sunday against an above average Philadelphia defense. Perhaps...
Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb exacted revenge on his former team Sunday, throwing for 222 yards and two touchdowns to help Arizona defeat Philadelphia.Fantasy Spin:Most importantly, Kolb found Larry Fitzgerald nine times for 114 yards and a touchdown.
After defeating his old team, Kevin Kolb helped the Arizona Cardinals advance to 3-0 on the season—something that hasn’t happened since 1974, before the team was even in Arizona. With thousands of fans celebrating after the game, Glendale was buzzing; the energy was contagious.
Despite all of this, during the postgame conference, head coach Ken Whisenhunt said, “We...
Arizona's defense battered Michael Vick all day - knocking him to the turf, stripping the ball from his hands. Kevin Kolb was sharp from the start, reconnecting with Larry Fitzgerald while winging passes all over the field.
The Cardinals may have been far from perfect, but they played well enough to keep their record that way.
Kolb threw a pair of touchdown passes and James...
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Kevin Kolb got the best of his former team. Michael Vick might be wishing he was still in Philadelphia the way the Arizona Cardinals battered him around.
Kolb threw for 222 yards and two touchdowns, James Sanders returned one of Vick's two first-half fumbles 93 yards for a touchdown and the Cardinals ran over the Eagles 27-6 on Sunday for their best start...

The Eagles are off to a great start to the regular season with a 2-0 record. But now another tough match-up has approached them this Sunday. The Arizona Cardinals.

THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF freshmen long have been a discussion point as Washington State continues through its rebuilding process. That was no different Tuesday morning as coach Mike Leach discussed the contributions some of his younger players have made during his weekly Pac-12 coaches teleconference.
PULLMAN -- For the first time since fall camp began, Washington State coach Mike Leach named a starting quarterback early on in the week. On top of that, a critical offensive lineman returned Sunday night, a player who wasn’t even listed on the depth chart as recently as two days ago.
"So we can learn to pick ourselves back up again."
Good morning Cougs (and I say good morning, not because it IS a good morning but because I wish it was). We can dispense with the pleasantries today for obvious reasons - yesterday's loss was an all-timer, wasn't it? I have been a Coug fan since watching Mark Rypien run the Jim Walden offense back in the...
