Cardinals reward Bowles with 3-year contract extension

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Cardinals players have not gone as far as to start a pool to pick the day defensive coordinator Todd Bowles leaves to become an NFL head coach, but they believe it is coming soon -- despite the three-year contract extension Bowles received Thursday.  "His days are numbered," cornerback Jerraud Powers said.  "It's like a clock counting down.

Cardinals could be 1st to play Super Bowl at home

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Through 48 Super Bowls, no team has played the game at home. The Arizona Cardinals, for so long the laughingstock of the NFL, have their sights set on being the first. Halfway through the season, the idea is no joke. Arizona, at 7-1, has the best record in the NFL. If this keeps up, the Cardinals could conceivably move through the playoffs and onto the game...

Bowles checks all the boxes as head coach candidate

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Maybe we're examining Todd Bowles' head coaching credentials too much as we speculate about how soon the Cardinals' 50-year-old defensive coordinator will climb the next rung in his career.  Maybe we're complicating the process as we wonder whether he'll excel in that position like he has in his current job. "I don't worry about being...

Foote on Cardinals' start: 'You've got to think about January'

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Cardinals got an unexpected present when both the Seahawks and 49ers lost on Sunday while Arizona won in Oakland. But in case anybody was feeling good, veteran inside linebacker Larry Foote had a reminder. "If it's playoffs you can start looking at yourself a little bit, but right now means nothing," Foote said.

Arizona Cardinals rally in opener

The Arizona Cardinals beat the San Diego Chargers 18-17 in the late Monday Night Football game. In what ESPN color commentator Trent Dilfer predicted to be an offensive display, the defenses stole the show. As much as I want to mercilessly ridicule Dilfer for making a wrong prediction, I can’t. It was logical to think that this game would be a shootout. DVOA is a stat coined by...

Chargers’ offensive goal in Arizona: Attack the middle of the defense

As the Bolts get prepared to open their season in the desert on Monday Night Football, the offensive game plan may be a little bit different from what we saw out of the 2013 Chargers. Last season, San Diego played keep-away from opponents as the defense couldn’t be counted on to get stops. The Bolts led the NFL in time of possesion per game during 2013 often using the full play...

The 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers: it’s easy to forget why things went ‘wrong’

After a Super Bowl run like the one the Steelers were on (appearing in three and winning two in a six year span) it’s easy to chalk up a second straight 8-8 and playoff-less campaign that was 2013 as the natural evolution of a once proud juggernaut, to that of a team in rebuilding mode. But while that is mostly true (only a blindly devoted Steelers fan would ignore things such...
