Is Sean Payton the best candidate for the Cardinals? Can Mat Ishbia get control of the Suns? Kliff Kingsbury and Steve Keim are out of their respective positions with the Arizona Cardinals as the team begins their search to fill the vacancies. Permission has been granted by the Saints for Sean Payton to interview for the head coach job, is…

I don’t know exactly when it was that Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill made the decision to induct his father, Bill, into the team’s Ring of Honor, but that might be the precise moment that the 2022 season went totally off the rails. You know; karma and all that. We do know the announcement that it would happen during halftime of the season opener came in August, a few days after one of the team’s former coaches, Don Coryell, had been named a finalist for the 2023 class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. His expected election will come later this month when the Hall’s selection committee votes on the entire 2023 group. It’s important to note that Coryell’s departure…

Patrick Beverley suspended for cheap shot on Deandre Ayton; DeAndre Hopkins ‘steroid boy’? Los Angeles Lakers guard Patrick Beverly was suspended after an altercation with Deandre Ayton during their game against the Phoenix Suns. AND, 49ers DB Charvarius Ward makes uncalled for remarks about DeAndre Hopkins following their win over the Arizona Cardinals. PLUS, the Arizona State Sun Devils and University of Arizona Wildcats go head to head in their annual Territorial Cup rivalry game, but does it even have meaning anymore?

It was an up and down week for Arizona Cardinals fans, Eno Benjamin was shockingly released on Monday while Zach Ertz was declared out for the season with a knee injury. Some good news came later in the week when Hollywood Brown was designated to return from IR. After Colt McCoy helped lead the Cardinals to victory, is there going to be a battle for the QB1 position? The Phoenix Suns defeated the Golden State Warriors despite Steph Curry dropping 50 points. Deandre Ayton and his mom are teaming up for a good cause.

If we each had a dollar for all the times that we’ve heard the words focus, execution or rhythm when it pertains to the Cardinals offense in the first three weeks of the season, we’d probably be able to retire. That, of course, is overstating things, but NFL reality is that fast starts and rhythm don’t usually occur unless there’s...

Cardinals outside linebacker Markus Golden couldn’t help but be ecstatic when he saw Chris Banjo in the locker room Thursday morning. The words came flying from the always enthusiastic Golden’ mouth Friday as he was approached for an interview. As soon as the second word (“personality”) of a question that didn’t get past those two words was mentioned, Golden said,...

The Panthers have also had the Cardinals' number in recent years.

It’s not to the level of the Rams, but the Carolina Panthers have also been a thorn in Kliff Kingsbury’s side since he became the Cardinals’ coach in 2019. The Cardinals and Panthers have played each of the three seasons with Carolina winning them all by a combined score of 103-51 (38-20, 31-21 and 34-10 last season). Asked about Carolina’s...

Whatever the reason for Cardinals linebacker Isaiah Simmons’ diminished role, it still is befuddling. We always hear coaches say that the goal is to get the best players on the field as much as possible. Raise your hand if you believe Ben Niemann or Nick Vigil are better players than Simmons. Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph said last week that no...
