    I hate games in Arizona. Let me get that out of the way before kickoff.Huh? What was the penalty on that first play? Can’t be sure if the sack counted or not or if the play would have stood if the Redskins had recovered the fumble. It’s not quite like a game at FedEx, but…

    Fourth Quarter Good punt by Frost; in that three-game losing streak he had a tendency to get off a weak one under such circumstances. That was great timing for the first three and out of the game by the Cardinals, and they looked bad doing it. We’ll see if the commitment to the run shown…

    Third Quarter A fifteen-yard penalty before even taking the field for the second half? Did I mention that I hate games in Arizona? I’m typing this prior to the replay review, so I’m assuming that it’s a TD as it looks like Portis got the ball over before stepping out, but here goes. That was…

    Second Quarter Carlos Rogers pursues the run very well. It looked like J. J. Arrington had some running room on that pitch play, but Rogers closed in a hurry and made the tackle for a loss. Very good responding drive by Warner and the Cardinals. They got some ground game going and protected Warner better,…

    I’ve been following the NFL since 1967 and I’ve never wanted anything that the Cardinals had, either in St. Louis or as Phoenix or Arizona. Until now, that is. Here is the artist’s rendition of their new stadium, which will finally open next season: No, it’s not the retractable roof. I’m not real wild about…

    Michael Wilbon may be a Bears fan but he does know football and the Redskins pretty well. He hit it right on the money in his column on Monday morning: They should have been doing this all along. The Washington Redskins should have committed to pounding people with their running game from Week 1. Throwing…

    Fourth QuarterAgainst the Niners, Clinton Portis turned a cartwheel after scoring a rushing touchdown. Today, he turned one while in the process of scoring the touch, going in the air and heels over head into the end zone.Redskins 17-7. This sounds hauntingly familiar—a 10-point fourth-quarter lead.

    Third QuarterI suppose it’s a bit harsh to get on Antonio Brown about this, but what is he doing fielding a punt inside the five. I guess he was focused on catching the ball and he wasn’t quite sure where he was, but you have to let that one go. More YAC by Cooley as…
