RECAP: Cardinals Thump Cowboys 28-17, Sweep NFC East

ere is no denying the fact that the Arizona Cardinals are among the best teams in football. After a thorough 28-17 pounding of the Dallas Cowboys, the Cardinals are 7-1 and swept the NFC East. Let that sink in for a moment. They buzzsawed a whole division already. Carson Palmer threw for 249 yards and three touchdowns in the win. Andre Ellington had another solid game with 95 rushing...

Former Sun Devil Marion Grice ‘excited’ to be an Arizona Cardinal

( Marion Grice is such a talented multi dimensional running back who can create a big play with his feet, catch out of the backfield and even pound the ball for short yardage. When the sixth-round draft pick began this season on the San Diego Chargers practice squad it seemed to be just a matter of time before a team signed him. That NFL dream has now become a reality...

Cardinals sign former Sun Devil Marion Grice to two-year deal

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)   With Ryan Mathews expected to miss around a month with a knee injury and Danny Woodhead out for the season with a fractured fibula, Marion Grice very well could have made the Chargers’ 53-man roster on Sunday. Before the Cardinals swooped him up from the Chargers’ practice squad, that is. The Cardinals inked former Sun Devil running back Marion...

List of available free agent running backs the Chargers may consider signing

Yesterday was filled with bad news for the San Diego Chargers. Danny Woodhead has been placed on IR, and Marion Grice was signed off the practice squad by the Arizona Cardinals. This now leaves the Bolts with Donald Brown and Branden Oliver as the lone backs in the next few weeks before Ryan Mathews returns from his MCL injury.

Replacing Danny Woodhead: Oliver and Grice must shine for San Diego

In an otherwise very positive start to the season, the Chargers have been bitten by the injury bug in the backfield. Ironically, few Chargers’ fans were happy with the signing of Donald Brown in free agency and the drafting of Marion Grice, but Tom Telesco has again shown us why he is one of the better young minds in the game.

Chargers cut Grice, add Mathews

SAN DIEGO (AP) Running back Marion Grice, a sixth-round pick from Arizona State, was released by the San Diego Chargers on Monday in favor of defensive lineman Ricardo Mathews. Chargers general manager Tom Telesco is familiar with Mathews. Telesco was in the Colts' front office when Mathews was a seventh-round pick in 2010. Over four years in Indianapolis, Mathews played in...

Chargers pick DT Ricardo Mathews over Marion Grice, Kevin Vickerson

When the final cuts were made on Saturday afternoon, the Chargers had five running backs on the roster. Most assumed the final spot would come down to a battle between rookie backs Marion Grice and Branden Oliver, and they were correct. Initially, Tom Telesco and the Chargers kept both backs as waiving either could have resulted in their departure from San Diego. However, when a...

San Diego Chargers Preseason Wrap: The Good, Bad & Ugly

The Chargers were a nice postseason surprise last year (particularly for us frustrated fans), not only making it into the playoffs but also beating the Bengals in the wildcard round. It appeared that the new Tom Telesco-Mike McCoy era was one of positivity, thus seeking to negate the fiasco the former pairing of A.J. Smith and Norv Turner left.

And for some members of the San Diego Chargers, that statement rings true as well. The Chargers recently made maneuvers to trim the roster down to 75 players. Marcus Cromartie, Kwame Geathers, and Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe were all placed on Injured Reserve; Jeromey...

National confidence level in San Diego Chargers drops after preseason Week 3

The dress rehearsals are in the books; at least that’s how the NFL likes to position the third week of the preseason. And to some extent, it’s accurate; more than at any time during the exhibition season, starters around the league play, some even into the second half. Thus, there are things to be learned from what transpired this week. The results on the field were the best...

Marion Grice vs. Branden Oliver: Who will make the roster with final cuts approaching?

The third preseason game gave us little insight as to who is going to emerge between Branden Oliver and Marion Grice. What we do know is that between Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown, the Chargers are developing a three-headed monster in the backfield. These backs give the Bolts plenty of options behind Philip Rivers in 2014. However, with Ryan Mathews set to be a free...

As good as the effort and intensity levels were for the Chargers last week, they were equally as bad Friday night in Seattle.
