How much more patience can Doan afford with Coyotes?

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- As the Coyotes opened the preseason on Monday at Gila River Arena against the Los Angeles Kings, it was tempting to ponder the divergent paths these franchises have taken since they met in the Western Conference Final in 2012. Since L.A. won that series, it has raised two Stanley Cups and become the model for franchise building in non-traditional hockey markets...

Anquan Boldin rips refs for 49ers' loss to Cardinals

The 49ers have blown leads in each of their past two games, and wide receiver Anquan Boldin thinks it has more to do with the referees than it does with San Francisco’s opponents. Through three weeks, the 49ers have a league-high 36 penalties. They have cost the 49ers dearly in their last two games – both losses that came after blown leads. On Sunday, the 49ers had two personal...

Chemistry, star power could keep Mercury on glory road

And now they'll scatter to the four winds. Some will take their considerable talents to Russia. The most visible will join Team USA for the Women's World Cup before hustling off to another league in another part of the planet. In this adaptation of a basketball profession, there really is no offseason. There is little time for mental rejuvenation, for upgrades or additions...

ASU tight ends making fewer plays but excelling in supporting roles

TEMPE, Ariz. -- There have not been many surprises through Arizona State's first two games, but tight end De'Marieya Nelson's stat line perhaps could be considered the biggest, at least on the offense side: 0 receptions, 0 carries, 0 yards. Neither Nelson nor sophomore tight end Kody Kohl has a reception this season, and the tight end has had a muted role in ASU's...

Sky can't touch Mercury in Finals opener

PHOENIX -- A basketball clinic is scheduled for Monday at US Airways Center, but the Mercury rolled out a detailed-oriented dress rehearsal one day early. And instead of giving demonstrations for 75 wide-eyed kids, the home team provided some lessons-grade teaching for the Chicago Sky. It was a WNBA Finals Game 1 performance in which the Mercury shot 58.5 percent from the floor ...

Reasons for optimism, concern as Cardinals open season

TEMPE, Ariz. -- As each day passes, it seems to bring with it another reason for concern for the Cardinals. How many more personnel losses can Arizona absorb before all realistic hope has faded for the 2014 season?

What to watch: Arizona at UTSA on FOX Sports 1

Arizona duplicated last season's 58-13 victory over UNLV in last week's 2014 season opener -- winning by the exact same score as a year ago. Suffice to say the Wildcats would settle for a similar outcome in Thursday night's non-conference rematch against UTSA in San Antonio (5 p.m. Pacific, FOX Sports 1). The two teams played one another early last season, with Arizona...

McNabb says Foles isn't a franchise QB

PHILADELPHIA -- Fluke or franchise quarterback? The question will follow Nick Foles around until he proves himself again. Foles began last year as a backup to Michael Vick and finished as a Pro Bowl MVP. His emergence was one of the NFL's biggest surprises and a main reason why the Philadelphia Eagles went from 4-12 to 10-6 and won the NFC East title. Foles threw 27 touchdown...

Top efficiency ratings can get you a league-record 29 victories in a single season. And that can get you noticed. It also gets you a bull's-eye beneath...
