Cardinals Mailbag: The Final Edition

For the final time this season, we’ll open up the Arizona Cardinals mailbag and see what’s still in there. Let’s take a look. Junk mail. Ads. Homeowner association notice of some sort. Postcard announcing a wedding. Bills. More bills. There has to be a question in here somewhere. Maybe it got returned to the sender after the postage increased to 49 cents on Monday. Ah here’s...

Dave Zastudil Agrees To Two-Year Deal

Dave Zastudil’s career might have been over, done in by painful right knee tendonitis and the invasive surgery needed to repair in halfway through the 2009 season. It cost Zastudil all of the 2010 season and only the Cardinals’ call late in training camp of 2011 got him back on a roster. From there, Zastudil has made it work. Three years with the Cardinals post-rehab have been...

Are Browns specialists still special?

This will be a big change for the Browns this season as the one area that has been the most consistent since the Browns returned in 1999 has been the specialists. Phil Dawson had been the kicker since 1999 and the Browns punting situation has consistently been one of the team's stronger areas with the likes of Chris Gardocki, Dave Zastudil and Reggie Hodges manning the duties...

The Game: Miami at Indianapolis The Situation: The Dolphins had the ball, second-and-1, on their own 30 with 5:26 remaining in the game. Indianapolis led, 23-20. The...

Cards notebook: A leg up in the kicking game

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Through four games, the Cardinals have yet to unleash their vaunted return game. But special teams coach Kevin Spencer has no complaints with the performance of his punter and kicker. Dave Zastudil ranks just 12th in the league in yards per punt (47.5), but he is seventh in net yards per punt (42.9), a far more important stat. Hes also fifth in punts downed inside...

The Best Browns Since 1999 – Special Teams

I figured I’d end the week on a happier note than some of the other categories. No better way to do that than with some love for Phil Dawson. Punter probably couldn’t have been much closer.  The Browns have undoubtedly had some pretty good (and oft-used) punters since 1999.  Dave Zastudil probably got the nod because he is also a local boy.  Gardocki will forever be known...
