It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Second-year Arizona Cardinals linebacker Sam Acho has a way of putting a smile on kids’ faces. If you remember, Acho provided us with one of the highlights during the preseason with his encounter with a young girl. This time around, Acho gave a young fan an early Christmas present that, by the little guy’s reaction, will be a present this little guy will remember for a young time.
Arizona fans haven’t had much to cheer about this year (or in many recent years). After a 4-0 start, they have won just one of their last 11. We applaud this young fan’s faithfulness.
Following Sunday’s game against the Bears, Acho headed over to the stands to give away a glove that he was wearing. If the kid’s reaction doesn’t make you smile, you might need to lighten up a little.

Beanie Wells has played his entire career with the Arizona Cardinals, but he doesn't think he'll be back with the team next season.

Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett is known for his funny Twitter account, and he had quite a gem around Christmas.
According to Don Banks of SI.com, it looks like Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Wisenhunt will be fired after six seasons in the desert. General manager Rod Graves may also get fired or given a demotion instead. The Cardinals’ collapse after a 4-0 start this season is expected to lead to head coach Ken Whisenhunt and the team parting ways after six seasons, and general manager...
Arizona's Patrick Peterson is headed to the Pro Bowl for the second time in his two seasons in the NFL.
This one, he said, means more because he has been chosen as a cornerback. Last year, as a rookie, he made the Pro Bowl as a punt returner.
Patrick, as confident as they come in pro football, says he expected the selection and considers it a reward for the hard work he has...
The Arizona Cardinals have placed tight end Rob Housler on injured reserve and promoted wide receiver Kerry Taylor to the active roster.
Housler is the team's third-leading receiver with 45 catches for 417 yards and a touchdown. He injured his shoulder in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Chicago Bears.
Taylor, who grew up in nearby Chandler, Ariz., and played for Arizona State...
It has been a long and grueling season for Darnell Dockett and the rest of the Arizona Cardinals. For many of the team’s players, Christmas likely served as a welcome distraction from a season in which they have lost 10 out of their last 11 games. Dockett, on the other hand, seemed like he was a bit lonely during the holiday season.
On Christmas night, Dockett took to Twitter to...

Arizona running back Beanie Wells is using next week's game against San Francisco as an "audition for a job somewhere else."Fantasy Spin:It's pretty clear Wells wants out after another frustrating season for the listless Cardinals. Wells has been a fantasy disappointment this season (234 yards, five TD in eight games) but perhaps playing for a new team will rejuvenate him.
The Arizona Cardinals will give Brian Hoyer his first NFL start less than three weeks after the team claimed him off waivers from Pittsburgh.
TEMPE, Ariz. Patrick Peterson was named to the 2012 NFC Pro Bowl roster on Wednesday, becoming the first Cardinal to earn Pro Bowl nods in each of his first two seasons since Vai Sikahema did it in 1986 and 87. He also joined Hall of Famer Rod Woodson as the only two NFL players ever to earn Pro Bowl selections as a returner and as a defensive player.
"It definitely solidifies...
