The good, the bad, & the ugly in the Kansas City Chiefs win over Chargers

After the Kansas City Chiefs 23-20 road victory against the red-hot San Diego Chargers, they seem to have solidified themselves as contenders in the AFC, at least for now. With all things considered, sitting at 3-3 after battling through numerous injuries and an extremely tough schedule is something to be proud of. Before we look ahead to the Governor’s Cup (http://en.wikipedia...

The Worst CB Ever Drafted by the Arizona Cardinals is…

It’s Thursday once again which means it’s time for part 11 of our series of the worst draft picks in Arizona Cardinals history leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft. The draft is only three weeks away (thankfully, I can only take so many mock drafts and anonymous comments about prospects from NFL scouts) and that means we are breaking down the cornerback position this week. We have...

Jaguars could add depth later on in the draft at cornerback

Last season, we saw the cornerback position and really, the entire secondary go through a major overhaul under first-year general manager David Caldwell. In free agency, Caldwell added Will Blackmon, one of head coach Gus Bradley’s former players in Seattle, and Alan Ball. Jamell Fleming was claimed off waivers in the early part of last season while Dwayne Gratz, Demetrius McCray...

Cardinals release CB Fleming, promote WR Kelly

The Arizona Cardinals have released cornerback Jamell Fleming and promoted wide receiver Kerry Taylor from the practice squad. Fleming was a third-round draft pick out of Oklahoma in 2012, but had fallen to the bottom of the depth chart under the Cardinals' new coaching regime.

Report: Cardinals Releasing 2013 Third-Round Pick CB Jamell Fleming

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Arizona Cardinals are releasing their 2012 third-round selection CB Jamell Fleming. There has been speculation for months that Fleming could be on the chopping block, despite his relatively high draft selection just last year. Arizona has put together a decent secondary that consists of Patrick Peterson, Jerraud Powers, Antoine Cason, and...

Cardinals free agency

Devising a plan for the Cardinals in free agency is like walking a tight rope, it’s exciting, but one bad deal can set the team back further in what is quickly becoming the best division in the NFL. You can make it across and amaze people, or you can trip fall and hopefully there is a net to catch you underneath. The problem is the Cardinals are walking that rope without a net...

Losing streak prompts Cards to shuffle deck

TEMPE, Ariz. Theres no formula for lineup changes in the NFL. Injuries, aging veterans, not-quite-ready rookies and underperformers can all play a role in game-day alterations -- and all of those factors exist with the Cardinals. Regardless of why, Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt has made it clear that change is occurring for the most important reason of all: Losing. What...

Open competition at Cards cornerback

The quarterback competition is getting all the attention at the Arizona Cardinals training camp. The battle at cornerback is equally intense. Patrick Peterson has one cornerback spot nailed down. The other is the only position up for grabs on a defense that is considered the strength of the team. Among the candidates are Greg Toler, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL...

William Gay opens as starting cornerback for Cardinals

Last season, AJ Jefferson was the starting cornerback for the Cardinals opposite Patrick Peterson. However, it appears he will have very stiff competition to remain the starter. The Cardinals brought in William Gay through free agency, Jamell Fleming in the 3rd round of the draft, and also will get a former starter, Greg Toler, back from an injury that caused him to miss the entirety...

Draft Grades: Arizona Cardinals

This was a bold draft for the Arizona Cardinals, who acted more like a team on the verge of contention than one in rebuilding mode. It’s a fine strategy if Kevin Kolb works out, but if their quarterback situation remains a question mark, this could set them back. Michael Floyd was a luxury pick, but does give Larry Fitzgerald the support he needs. It also shifts Early Doucet back...

Cards notebook: Can't have too many corners

Cardinals coaches don't believe there is such a thing as having too many cornerbacks. That became more apparent on draft day when they selected Jamell Fleming in the third round instead of addressing a bigger need, such as offensive tackle or outside linebacker. Fleming became the ninth cornerback on the roster. He is one of at least four who will compete for the starting job...

13. WR Michael Floyd AThey needed offensive line help, but Floyd was the best player left on my board other than two pass rushers that wouldn’t have filled needs. Riley Reiff and David DeCastro were a little further down my board and those would have been good picks too, but I’m not going to argue with taking the best available at a position of need.
