Don't get me wrong, we've seen the Cards jump out to big leads several times this year only to watch the lead disappear in time for the final clock tick, but a funny thing happened on the way to the typical Cardinals game, the defense held.
This was a wonderful game. Yes, the Seahawks took the lead with just over 5 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, but the Cardinals came back and retook the lead never to relinquish it again.

Since the Cardinals are currently 3-9 and still sucking, I figured why not take some time and focus on the cheerleaders.
The Cardinals’ cheerleaders are taking some time away from cheering for a losing team and spreading holiday cheer instead. Eleven members of the Show Team just got back from
Now, those are some lucky kids.

With 2 wins this season and 9 loses, what can really be said about the Arizona Cardinals. Pendergast’s so called “unorthodox style of defensive”, which leaves teams guessing as to where the pressure is coming from, doesn’t really seem to be anything extraordinary. Sure, it keeps the Cardinals from having a humiliating defeat, but what about offense? At least rookie Matt Leinart can get some game experience without all the pressure of winning. Maybe next year they’ll be ready to win again.

The most satisfying thing in a way was seeing Matt Leinart get his first NFL win. There have probably been times this season when he longed to be back at USC, where he had so many victories, and where they are having another fantastic year. Hey, Matt, this one felt good, didn't it? And Cardinals fans know you've got some more in you -- maybe Minnesota or St. Louis? Or both?

I gather that Glendale is also talking with the Chicago White Sox about doing spring training here. That doesn't make quite as much sense. The White Sox already do their preseason stuff down in Tucson. Actually, they share their spring training facilities with the Arizona Diamondbacks, and I think it would be great to have them even more local. But maybe that's not really fair to other D'Backs fans scattered outside the Valley of the Sun.
What I'm really wishing for is a little more NFL action, meaning some positive headlines about our Cards. I can wish, right?

"The Cardinals have historically been known as a chronic loser. They were NFL Champions in 1925 and 1947. However, the team has not won a league title since then, and thus currently holds the NFL record for the longest championship drought."
Then again, maybe this is the time we see who the real fans are, right? I mean, those of us sticking with them this long can't be anything but.

"Rowen is said to believe that he has been wrongly damaged by his firing/demotion, and wants to bring to light the fact that he wasn't calling plays for the Cardinals as their collapse unfolded Monday night. According to a league source close to the situation, Green took over the play calling at times from late in the second quarter on, after Arizona had built a 17-0 lead."
And the plot thickens...

"I don't hesitate to make changes. That's just who I am," Green said. "I like things to go a certain way, and if they don't, I normally do something about it."
Can I get an Amen?

C'mon guys, there's so much potential here. Spend the money, get committed, and bring some victories to the Arizona Cardinals in our (oh-so-creatively-named) new University of Phoenix Stadium!

Maybe next they'll rename the Arizona Cardinals the "Arizona Football Throwers."

And (sigh) so have the Cardinals’ fans. To see a few more notches in the victory column, that is. But our outing against the Atlanta Falcons wasn’t to be one of them.
Things went badly enough that Kurt Warner got replaced for the last 13 minutes by Matt Leinart, who also had a less than stellar performance. Coach Green is going to give him the chance he’s been waiting for to start a game next week when

Been away for awhile, but this time of year there’s more MLB action than NFL. And one thing with baseball – sometimes your ticket buys you extra innings. The other night Arizona Diamondbacks fans got two games’ worth of play for the price of one at Coors Field. Not to mention a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies.
Rare as this is, there were two games that went 18 innings Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. In the other one, the Chicago Cubs finally beat the Houston Astros 8-6.

The Phoenix Suns are truly amazing this year. Steve Nash deserved the MVP award he received this year as much as last and I can’t believe how much Raja Bell and Shawn Marion have stepped up in the playoffs. Las night’s loss was unfortunate but we can comeback and win on Tuesday, Thursday and continue on to the Western Conference Finals. Go Suns!

I am sick over what qualifies as news in the NFL off-season. All the team web sites are featuring stories about the teams cheerleading tryouts when there are draft prospects to analyze and holes to fill on this Arizona Cardinals team. With the stadium nearing completion I am curious about who we are going to acquire to fill those holes and what this team is going to look like for the start of the 2006 season.

The Arizona Cardinals have signed free agent Edgerrin James and I couldn’t be happier. He is possibly the best running back in the NFL and gives us a much needed edge on offense. (no pun intended) My only fear is that he will not perform for the Cardinals as well as he did under the Colts zone method.

The Collective Bargaining Agreement issue has been resolved and passed. There was a lot of compromising done and it was actually nice to see the players working with the coaches. With all the striking that has gone on in the past 15 years I was bracing myself for the worst.

Now, I would have been scrounging and scrapping for Super Bowl tickets if the Arizona Cardinals had been in on the action. But it will also add to my interest when the Super Bowl is happening someplace warm, like Miami next year. Better yet, 2008 right here in the Valley of the Sun, at the new Cardinals Stadium in Glendale!
