End of a losing streak...

Well, our hope for finally winning something comes tomorrow. I can hardly watch. C'mon, Cardinals, show Arizona why we keep you, eh?

Everybody cross your fingers for the Arizona Cardinals at Lambeau Field on Sunday vs. the Green Bay Packers...

Not as simple a fix as they thought?

Okay, so was it really a good idea after all for the Arizona Cardinals' head coach Dennis Green to fire Keith Rowen? Keith Rowen says no.

"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...

Goodbye to another offensive coordinator

So Keith Rowen is out, eh? Fired on Tuesday. I gotta say, watching the Arizona Cardinals throw away a 20-point lead was positively excruciating, so I can't complain too much. If there's anything to be thankful for, I suppose it's coach Dennis Green's stance on team changes:

"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?

Drop the dough for the Arizona Cardinals

Okay, so I think the Chicago Sun-Times has hit it on the head with their summary of Bill Bidwell's miserly ways being a major drawback to the Arizona Cardinals. Darnell Dockett, Calvin Pace, Wendell Bryant... what have they really contributed? Why can't we spend the money to REALLY bring in the talent we need? We're never gonna sell tickets this way.

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!

Arizona Cardinals go back to college

So the big naming-rights deal finally goes through, and the best name they can come up with is "University of Phoenix Stadium"? First off, it's weird that they'd call an NFL stadium a college stadium... and second, I suppose it's better than "Arizona Stadium"... but c'mon, where's the originality?

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

Arizona Cardinals VS. Supercuts??

Yep, you heard me. The Cardinals are joining forces with fancy schmancy stylist over at Rolf’s Salons to help raise money for the various charities they support. At $80 a ticket you get a cut and style, along with loads of food and beer! Where do I sign up? The guys at work are starting to tell me I look like one of the guys from Tesla. Maybe I could sign up as one of the celebrity guests?

New Packaging, Same So-So Taste

New stadium, new quarterback, same old results.

At least with Leinart, we’ll have something to build around. And maybe we’ll get to see Alyssa Milano at a game.

Arizona’s Leinart Has Been Waiting Patiently

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 Kansas City comes to town. Warner, a genuine example of a good sport, swallowed his frustration and promised to do whatever he can to help his replacement. Maybe we won’t have to wait any longer for win #2.
