Gruesome Twosome

This time last year Arizona Cardinals fans were still wondering who their team’s starting quarterback would be. Actually, there was a lot more dread than wonder going on, and rightly so. When Kevin Kolb and John Skelton are vying for the single most important position on the team, you kinda know your season is screwed from the get go.

That is exactly why 2013 will be a better year for the boys in red. Granted, newcomer Carson Palmer is no Kurt Warner, but given last year’s QB snafu, he might as well be. Palmer and head coach Bruce Arians headline a new-look team that may be poised to make some noise in the NFC West, a division that has become one of the league’s toughest in recent years. And even though it’s only a preseason game, one can hope that the Cards exorcise some of last year’s demons when they host the Dallas Cowboys at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 17, at Glendale’s University of Phoenix Stadium, 1 West Cardinals Drive. Tickets are $30 and up. Get yours by calling 602-379-0102 or via Visit for details.
