Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona CardinalsARI 20 SEA 16Releasing a superstar, choosing a rookie quarterback over the man they paid and bringing on a receiver past his prime, doesn't really sound like a great way to go about an off-season. That's exactly what the Seahawks and Pete Caroll did this off-season. The story of the preseason and the most unexpected rookie starting quarterback Russel Wilson had a lackluster performance in his debut. He threw for 153 yards and a touchdown.Marshawn Lynch was questionable going into Sunday with back spasms and all signs pointed to him not playing. He played, and played well rushing the ball 21 times for 85 yards. He also caught 2 passes for 12 yards. Robert Turbin barely saw the field on offense and only rushed two times for 5 yards and had one catch for two yards. Braylon Edwards led the team in receiving hauling in 5 catches for 43 yards. Sidney Rice was able to find the end-zone but only had four receptions for 36 yards.Zach Miller finishe...

Arizona Cardinals: Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#30)

Last week: 30 (+0) Record: 1-0 Consider me unimpressed by the Cardinals’ win over the Seahawks. The Seahawks were a poor road team starting a rookie 3rd round quarterback on the road in his 1st start with no offensive supporting cast, except a running back who was hurt. I had the Cardinals winning 3 games before the season and picked them to win this weekend. Nothing surprised...

Week 1: Cardinals 21, Seahawks 16

Well, that wasn't quite what we expected. Russell Wilson's first half left much to be desired, though he did bounce back and have a nice second half -- and incredible field position thanks to the kick return prowess of Leon Washington. But where was the red zone offense? Where were the conversion opportunities? And where was the pass defense? These are questions that need...

Opening Lines: Week 2

The Patriots opened as 13.5-point favorites as they host the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2. This line is tremendous, enormous, mammoth and colossal all at the same time. Why?

Watching Skelton and Kolb duke it out for the starting gig this summer was like staring at two Double...

Hey, Your Team Stinks Bro!
