There may not be enough beer in the Valley for Cardinals fans to drown their sorrows. But if you happen to be rooting for one of the better luckier teams still in the playoffs, here are four local bars fans of these teams can call home. Tempe's Four Peaks Brewing Company is a Viking fans have ... More >>
www.zimbio.com"[The Cardinals] defense is effing worthless" and "if Neil Rackers has a job tomorrow I'm becoming a Saints fan" were two of several utterances that could be overheard at the Cadillac Ranch in Tempe by disgruntled fans after the Cards 45-14 loss to the New Orleans Saints ... More >>
We make it a practice (once) every year of making the trek to Vegas and donating money to the "cause," that is, those poor casinos, by wagering on all manner of sporting events. Unfortunately, we were not up there last week to put down our hard-earned shekels on the four Natio ... More >>
ChopsRockWhen given the option of an exciting wildcat offense and a stud quarterback, or two middle-aged guys in the twilight of their careers, NBC is going with the latter.NBC has decided to show the Arizona Cardinals a little love this season and has opted to move the Cards December 6 gam ...

It's slippery, slashing Rams RB Steven Jackson vs. Arizona's nutty road-field advantage on Sunday in St. Louis. Talk about a daft stat. If the Arizona Cardinals get back to the Super Bowl in 2010, it'll likely be thanks to their nutty road-field advantage. Sitting pretty with a road recor ... More >>
If Beanie can hold on to the ball, expect a breakout day for the rookie RB against the Texans. Three years ago, Suns fans considered Kobe Bryant's Los Angeles Lakers their personal bitches. Two years ago, D-Backers openly lampooned the hapless, pre-Joe Torre L.A. Dodgers. Last year, Arizon ... More >>
Don't cry, Gokey. You always have a future as a Lenscrafters model...I will be the first to admit that as excited as I am about last night's Idol results, I am also really shocked (as are a lot of other people, apparently). I think most people--whether they were Gokey fans or not--thought his large ... More >>
Good question for the Cards. T-shirt sold through Moe Wampum, Inc .Okay, Kurt Warner's on the open market. He and the Arizona Cardinals, though talking, didn't come to terms on a contract before the free-agency deadline today. What does this mean? Well, he could go to another team, that' ... More >>
Didn't we predict it would come to this? Yes we did, over and over. We said Kurt Warner would seek the highest salary possible following his improbable Super Bowl run, and that the Arizona Cardinals would resist. For two reasons: Because the Bidwills who own the franchise are known to be a tigh ... More >>
The Phoenix Suns nearly pulled it off in 1993. The 1996 Arizona State Sun Devils football squad totally had it until the final seconds. And now the Arizona Cardinals are a game away from sports immortality. (And, arguably, the biggest comeback in modern-day athletics.) So some words of advice to ... More >>
Rob G., a tattoo artist known for his work on celebrities such as Suns star Shaquille O'Neal, hip-hop stars G-Unit, Ice Cube, Lil Jon, and DMX, and the New England Patriots, died at his home in Orlando, Florida on Monday, January 26.
The Phoenix Suns longest road trip of the year was a disaster -- until the Big Three (no, not those Big Three) found a way to win against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday. We're talking about Steve Nash, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Shaquille O'Neal. Nash played so brilliantly against the Hawks ... More >>
For someone like me, who is an Arizona Cardinals season ticket holder, this season has far exceeding any expectations I had for the team heading into September. Not to toot my horn or anything, but after watching the Cardinals dismantle the playoff-caliber Miami Dolphins in the home opener, I said ... More >>
Bid Bidwill, Ken Whisenhunt, and Rod Graves in January 2007 The Arizona Cardinals are going to the Super Bowl, and the world didn't end. Despite their myriad critics, maybe that means they belong there. Dangerous corollary for a young team: Maybe they're beginning to think they belong there. Luck ... More >>
It was fourth and inches late in the fourth quarter, and it wasn't the play we would've called with our team down 25-24 in the NFC Championship. But two running plays up the middle had yielded next to nothing. Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner takes the snap and hands off to&nb ... More >>
Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams The Arizona Cardinals are 0-5 this season in the Eastern Time zone, and some of the defeats went like this: 56-36 at the New York Jets, 48-20 at the Philadelphia Eagles, and 27-23 at the Carolina Panthers on October 26. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Whatever. Let's talk ... More >>
Cardinals starting quarterback Kurt Warner's contract expires at the end of this season, and according to the NFL News Feed, the Cards and Warner have made no progress toward a new one. Sports pundits like those at the Chicago Tribune are already saying their cities' teams (in this case, the&nb ... More >>
"Charmed" seems an odd descriptor for the 2008-09 Arizona Cardinals, who lost -- no, were crushed in -- four of their last six regular-season games. Yet here they sit, all warm and snuggly at 9-7, hosting a first-round playoff game at home in the Red Zone. Meanwhile, a couple of teams they lost to ... More >>
Finally, we get to report good news about the Arizona Cardinals, who finished the regular season 9-7 -- just as we predicted they would when we named Ken Whisenhunt top head coach in the PHX in our 2008 Best Of edition. Our prediction was based on the Cardinals going 8-8 last season ... More >>
Don't tell us that you're surprised. Really, did y'all expect anything different besides the same ol' bloody Cardinals? Since the team's division-clinching victory against the lowly St. Louis Rams on November 2, your Arizona Cardinals have lost four of their last five , including the previous two ... More >>
It wasn't the worst defeat in Cardinals history. The worst was a 49-0 ass-kicking by the Kansas City Chiefs in December, 2002. But it was an ass-kicking, all right. I know we've said it before, but the Cardinals were really pathetic this time. And it wasn't all about the weather in Foxboro, Ma ... More >>
The Arizona Cardinals got hammered by the Giants, dismembered by the Eagles, and just plain embarrassed by the Vikings. In between, they clinched the NFC West, guaranteeing themselves a home playoff game on the first weekend in January. It would be nice to go into the playoffs with momentum, and a ... More >>
Quarterback Kurt Warner was on his ass all day thanks to an Arizona Cardinals offensive line that couldn't have held off Brophy Prep. Offensive lines can make or break football teams, and Arizona's broke its team's back Sunday afternoon. It's a lucky thing no official stats ... More >>
The defense was stellar in the Arizona Cadinals' division-clinching 34-10 win over the St. Louis Rams, forcing two fumbles and intercepting a pass in the end zone and returning it 100 yards for a score. But before we get too giddy and start ordering Super Bowl tickets, let' ... More >>

Look out, dork: We may see you again in the playoffs. The difference in the Arizona Cardinals 37-29 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday was special teams. The Giants' played better. Take kick returner Dominik Hixon, who had run-backs of 83 and 68 yards to set up two Giants' scores. These m ... More >>
