  1. Arizona Cardinals cut-down analysis

    Mike Sando

    Most significant move: Placing linebacker Daryl Washington on the reserve/suspended list for the first four games was easily the most significant move the Cardinals made, but that was a matter of course. Specific to the roster, Arizona kept only four...

  2. NFC West draft analysis

    Mike Sando

    The NFC West has been gaining on the two-time defending division champion San Francisco 49ers. The Seattle Seahawks nearly caught the 49ers in the division race last season before adding Percy Harvin. The St. Louis Rams more than tripled their vic...

  3. Arizona Cardinals schedule analysis

    Mike Sando

    Breakdown: The Arizona Cardinals were the only NFC team left off the "Monday Night Football" schedule. That was understandable after Arizona lost 11 of its final 12 games last season. The Cardinals did draw a prime-time home game against the Seattle ...

  4. Arizona Cardinals cut-down analysis

    Mike Sando

    Most significant move: Clark Haggans failed to make the cut after five-plus seasons with the Cardinals. He could always re-sign at some point if the Cardinals need depth at outside linebacker. He'll be cheaper at that time, given that veteran contrac...

  7. Arizona Cardinals schedule analysis

    Mike Sando

    Breakdown: The Cardinals drew two prime-time games, both against division opponents, as part of a schedule that should let them avoid a second consecutive slow start. Arizona, which rallied to 8-8 last season after a 1-6 start, plays three of its ...

  8. St. Louis Rams schedule analysis

    Mike Sando

    Breakdown: Jeff Fisher's addition as coach raised the Rams' profile, but not enough for the team to secure a Monday night game. A Thursday night home game against the Arizona Cardinals on Oct. 4 will have to suffice in the prime-time department. That...

  9. Kevin Kolb and questioning Cards' tack

    Mike Sando

    Frustrations rise following lopsided defeats, sometimes impeding clear analysis. Other times, frustrations lower inhibitions, leading players to speak truths they might withhold under different circumstances. I tend to think Kevin Kolb's commen...

  10. Personnel report: Beanie Wells' power game

    Mike Sando

    The knock on Beanie Wells coming out of Ohio State was that he too often shied away from contact. "Wells is a big back, but he does not have great toughness," Steve Muench of Scouts Inc. said after the Arizona Cardinals made Wells the 31st player ...

  11. Arizona Cardinals cutdown analysis

    Mike Sando

    The Arizona Cardinals have made their initial cuts to comply with the 53-man deadline Saturday. Surprise move: Nothing too weighty here. The team kept four safeties initially instead of five, an indication that Adrian Wilson might be ready for the...

  12. NFC West draft analysis

    Mike Sando

    With Sam Bradford in place, the St. Louis Rams could sit back during the 2011 NFL draft and watch at least a dozen teams sweat over the available quarterbacks. Counter to conventional wisdom, the rest of the division followed suit -- despite obvio...

  13. Arizona Cardinals schedule analysis

    Mike Sando

    Breakdown: The Arizona Cardinals open at home for only the third time since moving to Arizona for the 1988 season. Better yet, the Carolina Panthers are on the menu. Arizona can't take any opponent for granted, of course, but opening the season with ...

  14. Better late than never for this Cardinal

    Mike Sando

    More evidence that Pro Bowl balloting among fans might not line up with actual player performances: The Arizona Cardinals' Ben Graham, described as "average at best" during a recent team-wide analysis, leads all punters in fan voting. Graham play...

  15. Update: NFL roster turnover since 2009

    Mike Sando

    The Seattle Seahawks are making their way through "Turnover Thursday" with a league-low 23 players on their 53-man roster from last season. Turnover, indeed. The chart, based on information from rosters I maintain for every team in the league, ...
