TV time for Beanie and Dock

Posted by Darren Urban on July 7, 2010 – 1:44 pm

Longing for some glimpses of some of your favorite Cards before training camp? Well, here’s your chance.

Running back Beanie Wells is scheduled to give you the weather report today on the 5 p.m. newscast at KPNX (Ch. 12). From what I heard, it was Beanie’s idea. Of course, that’s just a brief appearance compared to defensive tackle Darnell Dockett, who is scheduled to hit a bunch of ESPN platforms Friday during a visit to the sports media giant’s Bristol, CT, campus. Here is Nine-0’s tentative schedule (times are EST; subtract three hours for Arizona times):

  • 10 a.m. – noon – First Take and First and Ten debating Skip Bayless (ESPN2)
  • 1 p.m. – The Scott Van Pelt Show (ESPN Radio)
  • 2:10 p.m. – ESPNEWS
  • 4 p.m. – NFL Live
  • 6 p.m. – SportsCenter

(I joked with Dockett via Twitter today, asking him if he was already going to ESPN, why doesn’t he just show up the night before and host LeBron’s special that everyone is waiting for with baited breath. Dockett’s response? “I could care less where LeBron goes!! I wish him much success though but I got my own team to worry about.”)

    I’m surprised ‘Rome is Burning’ is not on the Dockett visit list. Rome was the guy that Dockett called out after a negative opinion about him. My guess is that Dockett has become to big for that pond with his call out of Hayneworth, Rhodes, and assorted comical tweets. What is your take, Darren?

    Rome tapes in L.A. Dock will be in CT.

    When do the Cardinals finally rework 90’s contract?

    Good question. Best guess — late this season.

    Hopefully, Well’s forecast will be Sunny in Arizona and mostly cloudy on the West Coast and Missouri will remain dark.(Especially at night.)
    And I’d love for the debate between Darnell and Poopkicker lover Bayless become heated and Maurice squish that little weasel.
    (Hint: I don’t like Skip Bayless.)

    Fitz’s contract runs through 2011, with a player option for 2012 (which I guarantee he will not pick up).

    I couldn’t (stand to) watch the whole news program, did Beanie really only get the 30 second spot that was at the beginning?

    He actually did the weather (and did a pretty good job) midway through the show, and also answered a couple of questions in sports. I’ll have a story posted about it tomorrow.

    Do you know if the Cards have any interest in participating in this year’s Supplemental Draft? More specifically, do they have any interest in Harvey Unga from BYU?

    As the article from the link below points out, he is BYU’s all-time leading rusher with 3 straight 1,000-yard seasons with intriguing size at 6-0, 237 lbs (5.3 yards per carry / 11 TD’s last season). Apparently he catches the ball very well out of back field in addition to his running talents (something Whisenhunt obviously values).

    Given that he’s been a teammate of Max Hall, it just seems logical that the Cards would have an “inside track” on his character/work ethic. And obviously, his connection to BYU doesn’t hurt in the Arizona market.

    I certainly understand that his position isn’t one of need for AZ, and teams certainly don’t like to give up future picks, but this guy at least seems like he’s worth some consideration.

    He’s holding his workout for NFL teams tomorrow, July 8th.

    I don’t see the Cards spending a draft pick on him.

    What happens if there is a lockout in 2011? Does the contracts count? – i.e. if Fitz is a FA after 2011, does he still have to play 2012 if there is a lockout?

    I’m hoping for NO lockout, but was curious.

    Thanks, V

    I will find that out along with a couple other CBA-related questions I am trying to answer, but as far as I can tell, the contracts will still expire in the years they are supposed to — remember, they won’t get paid if there is a lockout, so you couldn’t double-punish a player that way.
