GLENDALE, Ariz. The starting quarterback cant stay healthy, the backup quarterback cant hit a wide-open freight car and the third-string QB is astonishingly adept at hitting opposing defenders.
Sounds like the trailer to an awful cable TV series, no?
Unfortunately, its not fantasy. Its macabre reality for the Cardinals. And the grisly addendum is that there are no backups left to whom the Cardinals fan base can hitch its pathetic dreams.
Theres no great solution coming through that door. Theres no great players that are going to come in here and fix this, veteran Vonnie Holliday said. Weve got to fix this from within.
We dont know if the Ryan Lindley experiment will last beyond this week. Given the way coach Ken Whisenhunt unceremoniously yanked John Skelton after one quarter last week with the Cards leading 13-0 in Atlanta, it is hard to imagine Whisenhunt dusting off that hopeless script.
Maybe the Cards will decide to give Lindley another crack despite his four-interceptio...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Arizona Cardinals have announced that quarterback Ryan
Lindley will make his first start this weekend against the St. Louis Rams due
to Kevin Kolb’s lingering rib injury and John Skelton’s ineffective play.
The Cardinals listed Kolb as questionable to play Sunday, as
he’s been limited at practice all week due to his rib injury. It’s not clear if
he’ll be available...
This quote from Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt certainly makes it look pretty bad for Lions HC Jim Schwartz.
“They make a point of telling you before the game, on turnovers and scoring plays, you can’t throw the flag,” Whisenhunt said, via Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.
Good ole Schwartzee must have been blinded by rage at what he saw on the field. He...
Cardinals rookie QB Ryan Lindley was disastrous in his first NFL start Sunday, completing 31-of-52 for 312 yards but throwing four interceptions with zero touchdowns.Fantasy Spin:Larry Fitzgerald only had three catches on 12 targets and probably can't wait for the season to end.
GLENDALE, Ariz. When Cardinals training camp opened in Flagstaff in late July, coach Ken Whisenhunt did his best to diffuse the notion that he was on the hot seat after a pair of disappointing seasons.
By the time he addressed the media Sunday evening and Monday morning, he seemed resigned to this persistent storyline.
Thats part of the business, he said following the Cardinals...
Janoris Jenkins became the first player in Rams history and the first NFL rookie since 1960 to return two interceptions for touchdowns in the same game and St. Louis dominated the second half to hand the Arizona Cardinals their seventh loss in a row, 31-17 on Sunday.
Arizona rookie Ryan Lindley was intercepted four times in his first NFL start.
Jenkins' returns of 36 and 39...

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals are sticking with Ryan Lindley at quarterback, at least until Kevin Kolb is healthy enough to play.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt says that while Lindley had three bad throws that resulted in interceptions, two of them returned for touchdowns, in his first NFL start on Sunday, the rookie did have other times when he was...
Either Janoris Jenkins was really good on Sunday, or the Cardinals’ quarterback situation has reached an all-time low. It looked like it was actually a little bit of both.
The Rams’ rookie cornerback intercepted Cardinals rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley twice, and he took both picks back for touchdowns. The first appeared to be a good read by Jenkins — jumping LaRod Stephens...
GLENDALE, Az. -- A season that started with so much promise has completely disintegrated for the Arizona Cardinals. That's how Sunday's 31-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams began and ended, too. The Cardinals flexed their muscles early behind rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley in his first NFL start, but when things began to unravel, it was too much to overcome as Arizona dropped...
Arizona will roll the dice this week with rookie Ryan Lindley at quarterback, a decision that may just about finish off their playoff hopes if it backfires.Not that they have a lot of choice in the matter with Kevin Kolb still recovering and John Skelton looking lost behind an offensive line that has given up a league-leading 44 sacks.Jeff Fisher and the Rams will be looking to forget...
When the Rams last met the Arizona Cardinals, the birds stood atop the NFC West with a surprising 4-0 record. However, when we talked to Seth Cox of TSHQ at the time, he was not yet ready to start opening champagne bottles.
As it turns out, he was right to put the celebrations on hold. Since that Thursday night primetime matchup, the Cardinals have lost six games and two quarterbacks...
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Cardinals' game against the St. Louis Rams represented a microcosm of Arizona's season. Something that started with so much promise completely disintegrated. The Cardinals flexed their muscles early Sunday behind rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley, making his first NFL start, but when things began to unravel, it was too much to overcome. Arizona lost...
