A-Dub on radio and TV

Posted by Darren Urban on September 16, 2010 – 9:51 am

The reigning NFC defensive player of the week, Adrian Wilson, is following up his big Sunday with a big Big Red Rage tonight, bringing on as his guest the one guy who could compete for player of the game honors in St. Louis — Steve Breaston. The show, as usual, is at 6 p.m. at Majerle’s in Chandler. If you can’t make it live — and you know you want to — you can listen at Sports 620 KTAR.

If you missed Part one of “The Wilson Legacy” on TV last week, it’s on the website right here. Part two airs this weekend, both on Maximum Cardinals (3 p.m. Saturday on NBC/Ch. 12 and 6:30 a.m. Sunday on FSN Arizona) and The Ken Whisenhunt Show (midnight Saturday after “Saturday Night Live” on NBC/Ch. 12 and again Sunday at 7 p.m. on FSN).

(And, of course, there is “The Making of A-Dub” written piece if you missed it a while back).

    I have always liked Wilson, he’s a true professional. But is it just my imagination or is this defense trying to get some attitude. I can’t recall the player getting into the other team face as much as they did last game. Even Wilson, when he was hit a little last after the first interception immediately jump into that player grill….I got hype after I saw that. You know if mild mannered A-dub growls about something there has to be a reason why but this wasn’t a big deal and he still jump bad. The biggest thing was that this was against the Rams…in the past hardly any emotion would have been express over a team of the their caliber.

    Joey Porter has made a noticable difference in attitude with the other defensive players and hopefully it is contagious as a STD and caught by the offense, especially by the offensive line.

    RE: Defensive attitude

    Maybe. But that may the first time in history Wilson has been described as “mild-mannered.” He doesn’t talk much off the field, but on the field …

    RE: Aeneas

    Williams is up for the Hall this year. He was inducted into the Ring of Honor in 2008.

    Darren,
    Speaking of radio. How amazing would this radio show be: Ron Wolfley and Dale Hellestrae. We could call it……”sometimes too much honesty, will get you punched in the face”.

    Darren, set it up.

    Sunday I was looking for a tweet reply from you. I’m offended. j/k
    I will have to tweet you after games, so my emotions and logical thoughts are more in line.

    LSH looks really good out there. Even when beanie comes back I can’t see how the coaches can reduce his touches. He makes a play every time he gets his hands on the ball.

    This is too long. Keep on, keepin’ on Darren.

    Lol If the defense has an attitude STD then what woul EA (errant anderson) be. The itching and redness that goes away when his inteceptions are like shots of penicillian. Killing our mo during games??
    LSH will be a great complimentary back like, J.J. used to be I hope what you reported holds true and that they powers that be get him more involved. LSH really ignited the offense last game until then hightower was just losing yards and fumbling and EA was off target, much like the reason he got benched in cleveland. EA took that Just Throw it in the Area of Fitz and he will catch it, literally, someone should have rephrased that and said it has to be at least a catchable ball.

    Hey Darren–Nice Blogs!!!—When Wilson is able to freelance-that is when he is at his best. Having Matt Ware back in coverage allows Wilson to play to his strengths. Disruptive blitzes, run enforcer, and disguising a coverage is what Adrian does best. He is
    not the best when isolated in pure coverage. Having Matt Ware and Adrian out there together is a good combo–it allows Bill Davis to be more creative!!!
    Losing Matt Ware last year for the playoffs really hurt us. Agree!!!!

    Sure. But you’ve got to stop with the “agree!!!” thing.

    Darren, there seems to be a thread here about Cardinal future Hall of Fame players: huge integrity. Kurt Warner, Aeneas Williams, Adrian Wilson, Larry Fitzgerald. People who have been detractors of the Cardinals over the years should take notice that character counts. I would be interested in your take on the Bidwells’ commitment to field a team they are proud of in all respects.

    RE: Bidwill commitment

    I think that’s fair to a point. Obviously, that doesn’t mean all players that leave don’t have character. You also have to be a pretty good player when you are talking about the Hall of Fame. I think ADub and Fitz still have work to do in that area. Guys that leave have been good but not great, Hall of Fame types. You hang on to those.

    A-Dub desirves to be in the Hall of Fame someday. He is the heart of the Big Red D. Hits like a linebacker, covers like a safety. I just hope he can get a ring (or two) someday in the NFL.

    I saw A. Williams at McDonald’s here in St. Louis about a year ago. He still looks young enough to play. He was buying a stack of those Big Breakfast platters to go. Here was here as a Ram late in his career, but will always be remembered as a Cardinal in crappy ‘ol Sun Devil Stadium days with Thomas Jones, Jake the Snake, Andre Wadworthless, Eric Swann, and the safety #40 who was killed in Afghanistan.

    I’ll take back the slight against Andre W., who was a highly touted 1st round pick that didn’t work out, but I’ll also report from the ‘Lou that there is still a contingent of Big Red fans that follow the Cards, and that remember the days of the Cardiac Cards, and missed FGs by O’Donahue, and running backs named ‘Stump’, and Neil’s bad hip and such… you know, the good/bad ‘ol days at Busch Stadium.

    I love the Cardinals. I always will.

    Darren, why does the team not use Hyphen to return punts also?

    RE: Hyphen returns

    Because he doesn’t return punts. A totally different skill set.

    AndyM makes a good point and one that I have been considering for a while.

    AZ in general seems to attract people of character to its sports teams. Be it the Suns, DBacks, or Cards (I dont watch enough hockey to add the Coyotes to this statement, but if Shane Doan is representative of the entire team, then I am mistaken by leaving them out).

    Coming from southern California, I am very accustomed to pro athletes being idiots in the community. It seems like AZ weeds them out, by and large, and I for one am proud of that. Of course there is always the Charles Barkley “one off” from time to time, but for the most part it seems like AZ franchises do a good job of recruiting or encouraging players with high levels of moral character.

    Cheers AZ and to my Redibirds, I hope they friggin slay the Falcons on Sunday! GO CARDS!

    Darren,

    This was a great piece from Adam Schefter on his article 10 spot posted sept 17th…

    Nice to See A-Dub getting some mention!

    “Adrian Wilson had a sack, an interception and a blocked field goal against the Rams last week.In recent seasons, debates about the NFL’s best safeties have consistently revolved around Pittsburgh’s Troy Polamalu, Baltimore’s Ed Reed and Indianapolis’ Bob Sanders. Those debates sometimes omit Arizona’s Adrian Wilson, and that’s a shame. He has evolved into arguably the game’s top safety. In Arizona’s Week 1 game against the Rams, Wilson became the first player since Julius Peppers in 2004 to have a sack, interception and blocked field goal in the same game. In 2009, his ninth season as a Cardinal, Wilson started all 18 games played. It was the first time he has played in all 16 regular-season games since 2006. Polamalu didn’t finish last season, and Reed and Sanders already have missed time this season. Wilson should become a fixture in conversations about the game’s best safeties.”
