Some odds and ends

Posted by Darren Urban on October 19, 2011 – 10:52 am

A couple of tidbits I wanted to put out there while waiting for practice:

— Safety Kerry Rhodes, past his surgery to repair his broken foot and into rehab, returns to host his Big Red Rage radio show Thursday night with Larry Fitzgerald as his guest, so get your reservations now at Majerle’s in Chandler. The show begins at 6 p.m. (and will be live on Arizona Sports 620).

— One of Rhodes’ co-hosts, Paul Calvisi, will be trumpeting his newest Rocky Mountain Southwest Emmy for best sports reporter (OK, maybe he won’t be trumpeting it, but he did win). So too did the Cards’ quartet of Tim DeLaney, Jonathan Hayward, Bob Adlhoch and Martin Tarr for their 2010 preseason game broadcasts in the sporting event/live and unedited category.

— As part of Hispanic Heritage month, each of the 32 NFL teams are honoring someone local with a leadership award. The Cards’ winner, to be honored Sunday against Pittsburgh, will be Arizona State University wrestler Anthony Robles, who won a national title in the 125-pound weight class despite missing a leg.
With support from sponsor Bud Light, each winner gets $2,000 for an organization that serves the Hispanic community. For his donation, Robles chose the Wiggle Your Toes Foundation, dedicated to helping amputees and their families regain independence and mobility.

    with your clever titles, I was expecting an article about Heap, King and Housler. You got me.

    Way to go Paul and Anthony.

    Looking forward to our next game and the rest of the season.

    It would be cool if the Cardinals could find a job for Anthony Robles – what a true inspiration he is.

    Kudos to Paul, though visually I prefer the nominee that didn’t win, Jody Jackson over the “raccoon eyed” Cavisi. (Glad the staff changed the picture for the “Underground” audios.)

    Any Pulitzer or Dick Schaap awards, Darren?

    RE: Awards

    No, but I do have a trophy for being part of the winning team in the media portion of the 2003 Rock-The-Rim 3-on-3 basketball tournament.

    I just read this on, it seems highly suspect.
    Ken Whisenhunt, Cardinals: If Arizona continues to struggle offensively and Kevin Kolb doesn’t play better, Whisenhunt might be in trouble. The Cardinals are 1-4 in a weak division. It’s never good when your starting quarterbacks says, players “have to get more detail-oriented.”
    It seems more like the writers opinion, more so than fact.
    Any truth to it?
    I’d hope they’d at least give him another year for Kolb to learn the offense.

    RE: Whisenhunt future

    As I have noted many times, I don’t think he is going anywhere anytime soon.

    The show with Roy Green and Larry was a tremendous piece. To see the old films of Roy was fantastic. As much as I love Green, the years have made me forget the dynamic player he was. When I see the separation between Roy and the defenders, it brings me back to some great games in the 80s. It’s unfair to compare anyone to Roy Green in his prime.

    Where is Gabe Watson these days?
    My recollection of the SB has Larry’s 64 yd TD at the top. As a long suffering fan of bad defensive teams, the work of Gabe and DD in the middle of the 4-3 was also right at the top of my day’s enjoyment.

    RE: Watson

    Gabe signed briefly with the Giants and then was cut in the preseason. I believe he’s still a free agent.

    So much has been talked about how Whisenhunt is using the same plays that got the CARDS to the Super Bowl… well that’s good for the Offense, but what about the Defense??? Did we not run a 4-3 Defense on that Super Bowl team?

    RE: Super defense

    It was a 3-4/4-3 hybrid, with both principals used.
