Heading into week eight of the 2012 NFL regular season, the San Francisco 49ers should be very aware of the impending game plan by their opponents, the Arizona Cardinals. Judging by the offensive output that the Cardinals have demonstrated this season, the 49ers secondary is in for a very busy Monday night. On the year, the Cardinals have thrown the ball a total of 257 times, as opposed to just 174 rushing plays. And with a daunting 49ers defensive front line, the expectations for a large number of rushing plays is not likely. Especially with the Cardinals number one and number two running backs in the depth chart on the injured reserve list.
It should be stated that third string running back LaRod Stephens-Howling has performed very admirably in the absence of Ryan Williams and Beanie Wells. Stephens-Howling carried quite a load last week against the Minnesota Vikings with 20 total carries for 104 yards and one touchdown. And that was against a very good Vikings defensive line. ...

Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson has been fined $21,000 by the NFL for an illegal block on the Minnesota's John Carlson last Sunday in the Red Birds' 21-14 loss to the Vikings.
Carlson missed last night's game against Tampa Bay with concussion-like symptoms that appeared to stem from Johnson's block during a punt.
Johnson is a four-year veteran and an Alabama...

After starting the 2012 NFL season 4-0, the Arizona Cardinals have lost three in a row and are quickly spiraling downward towards another early offseason.
In the early weeks of the season the Cardinals looked red hot. The defense looked physical, and Kevin Kolb looked like he should’ve been starting all along. Broadcasters, fans and even myself bought into the Cards’ early success...
TEMPE, Ariz. Adrian Wilson needs a new look. His deadpan has lost its power.
When asked his thoughts on Monday nights game against the 49ers at University of Phoenix Stadium, the Cardinals defensive captain tried to assert that its just another game on the schedule.
The choir looked skeptical, so Wilson relented.
No, he said, laughing. Its not.
No. Its not.
Whether this rivalry...
The NFC West takes over Monday night football, and this season at least that means defense.
Going into last weekend, the four NFC West teams ranked among the top nine in the league in defense.
San Francisco leads the way at No. 1 with a powerful, smash-mouth group that overwhelms opponents, particularly with its excellent front seven. Arizona counters with a fast, aggressive unit...
The 49ers travel to Arizona to take on the Cardinals in primetime. I kinda feel sorry for the Cardinals this week, because I have a feeling they are going to get a beatdown. The 49ers in primetime never bodes well for their opponent.
The 49ers sit at 5-2 and the Cards at 4-3. A victory of the Cardinals will give them four losses in a row, which shows that their 4-0 start was nothing...
