Kevin Minter: Cards ‘desperate’ after losing to Vikings

Kevin Minter and the Arizona Cardinals are reeling after losing yet another game Sunday to the Minnesota Vikings, 30-24. The linebacker summed up the mood of the team after the game in one word. “Desperate,” Minter said, via “If we don’t want to be on the couch in January, we have to play better. Our back’s to the wall right now. I know I sound like a broken...

Keim: “We’ve let our fans down”

Steve Keim (like Kevin Minter Sunday) said it right away Monday, about how he sounded like a broken record. The stats were better than the opponent, the score was not. The Cardinals’ General Manager, during his appearance on the “Doug and Wolf” show on Arizona Sports 98.7, was also blunt about the hole the team is in after 10 games and a disappointing 4-5-1 record. “We...

Kevin Minter and what the Scouts Said

The Arizona Cardinals linebacker has been a bit of a disappointment, or has he? My first year of doing NFL Draft work on a legitimate site was in 2013.  I did a lot of prospect previews, breakdowns and analysis, I even rated 100 prospects on a big board.  Then I realized it was a lot of work, did it again in 2014, but in a scaled down version and then really just went to what...

Minter takes control of Arizona defense and shines

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Kevin Minter didn't have the immediate success he expected when the Arizona Cardinals drafted him in the second round out of LSU in 2013. He's having it now. Minter, as middle linebacker, calls the defensive sets for the front seven of a Cardinals team that was 10-2 and had won six in a row heading into a game Thursday night against Minnesota. For two seasons...

Kevin Minter on covering Jimmy Graham: ‘Pray’

The Arizona Cardinals are leaving no stone unturned when it comes to preparing to play the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday evening. This includes a plan for covering 6-foot-7, 260-pound tight end Jimmy Graham, who everyone, including Kevin Minter, knows is almost impossible to stop in the open field. “There really isn’t much you can do with that, unless you put a D-end out there...

Weatherspoon set to play, Minter promises big season

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Inside linebacker is supposed to be the weak link in an otherwise strong Arizona Cardinals defense. Coach Bruce Arians begs to differ. So does Kevin Minter, who is slimmed down and healthy after an injury-plagued second pro season in 2014. And it looks like Minter finally will have Sean Weatherspoon alongside him when the season opens Sept. 13 against New Orleans...

Minter, Cooper injuries are cause for concern

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- You don't need more reasons to be concerned about the Arizona Cardinals now that the defense has lost Karlos Dansby, Daryl Washington and Darnell Dockett. But the health of left guard Jonathan Cooper and inside linebacker Kevin Minter warrants some worry. Neither player practiced on Friday. While coach Bruce Arians said both would be game-time decisions on Sunday...

Arizona Cardinals to rely on rookies and redshirts in 2014

This coming season the Arizona Cardinals will be putting some pretty big expectations on a few guys who have yet to perform at the NFL level. Each year teams come to expect at least one or two fresh draftees to make an immediate impact on the field. Sometimes the opposite happens and those plans don’t exactly workout. Whether due to injury or depth, players sometimes have to wait...

Questions abound for Cardinals at inside linebacker

Kevin Minter will be given every possible chance to replace Karlos Dansby as one of the Cardinals' two starting inside linebackers. But that doesn't mean he has already been anointed. "I'm not ready to say he's the guy yet," defensive coordinator Todd Bowles said. "He's got to prove it in pads." What if Minter isn't ready to step out from Danby's lengthy shadow? And what if the Cardinals...
