A new face at azcardinals.com

Posted by Darren Urban on August 12, 2012 – 7:49 pm

No, no. I’m not going anywhere (which I am sure is to the chagrin of some of you), but we have brought aboard a new writer at azcardinals.com to help me fill your world with Cardinals’ news. His name is Josh Weinfuss, and he’s already been pressed into service. He’ll be starting full tilt this week. As for who he is, well, I decided to let him be quoted:

“I’ve moved to Phoenix after spending a year in Indianapolis pursuing a master’s of sports journalism from Indiana University. Prior going back to school, I was a sports writer for the last six years in Indiana, Florida and Arizona. After graduating from Indiana in 2005, I interned with the Arizona Republic. I’m glad to not have to deal with winters anymore and I’m always on the look for great BBQ.”

I hope you will embrace Josh as you have me.

    Josh,

    As a fellow BBQ addict, I can only hope Mr. Weinfuss will generously share his BBQ ‘discoveries’ with the loyal “Word From the Birds” readers who like to celebrate Cardinal victories with a heaping plate of quality BBQ.

    “Playing it Out” was a nice start.
    Can’t have to much quality cardinal news.
    Good luck on the new gig Josh.

    josh,

    You have big boots to fill.

    I’m concerned that this might portend another change.

    Is there really so much Cards’ news that there is a need for two bloggers???????

    Huh, is this a new style of English?

    Hi Darren and Josh,
    Playing it out was great Josh. Everyday I get up early and want to read everything about the cardinals, but Darren just wouldn’t work 40 hours a day to keep me filled up. HaHa! Looking forward to another great season @ AZCARDINALS.COM

    Welcome Josh-you made the right decision to leave the AZ Republic, terrible fish wrap.

    If the Cards make it through training camp with no WR injuries, then I would float the idea to the Dolphins to see what kind of draft pick we could get from E. Doucet trade. This team is deep at WR and by the looks of this early preseason, needs to gain more talent next year, either at OL, LB or RB.

    Welcome aboard Josh.

    Now maybe I can get a gig photographing the games from the sidelines. 🙂

    Hey Josh, you wouldn’t, by any chance, know how to throw the football in a west coast offense would you? I think I might know of a good first assignment for you.

    Q: Are you a Cardinals fan?

  22. By Rich on Aug 13, 2012 | Reply

    Darren,

    Did you think Skelton and Kolb looked bad against KC? I thought they both looked pretty good in limited action. Not sure what the fans want to see in a partial quarter of an early pre season game.

    RE: QBs

    I don’t know if I’d say bad, but I probably wouldn’t say good either.

    Is it just me,ordid this running back…..Powell…..look good? I realize he was in against 2nd teams. But the kid is like a bowling ball.
