Hyphen up for award, and Pro Bowl possibilities

Posted by Darren Urban on November 20, 2012 – 9:51 pm

As Pro Bowl voting continues, the folks over at are prompting readers to pick three Cardinals as Pro Bowl worthy. Two are the same as their last list, with linebacker Daryl Washington and defensive end Calais Campbell getting the nod. The third was safety Kerry Rhodes, who has been having a solid bounce-back season after injuries wrecked 2011. Rhodes had an interception in Atlanta this past weekend.

— Running back LaRod Stephens-Howling, after his 127 yards rushing in Atlanta, is up for the FedEx Ground player of the week. You can vote here until Friday. He’s up against the Bengals’ Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis and the Buccaneers’ Doug Martin.

— Speaking of Stephens-Howling, he will be the guest on the Thanksgiving week edition of Kerry Rhodes’ Big Red Rage, which will be held Wednesday night because of the holiday. The show starts at 6 p.m. as usual at Majerle’s Sports Grill in Chandler.

    Maybe I sound like a Pollyanna. But I still think we can claw our way out of this hole Think about it. We play the Rams at home. No disrespect to them but we match up well with them and are at UOP. Then we go to the Jets. East coast game yes but I would think with our defense defending M. Sanchez.I like our chances. That gets us to 6-6. We then have two roadies and 2 at UOP. If we lose to the Rams then yes I would really start to play a lot of young players to prepare for next season. This week against the Rams is really our last chance to redeem the season this year. We’re back home Birdgang. Let’s get a win.

    Why the delay on his new contract. He deserves it, what more do you want.

    Good for the Hypen!!! He has done really wall the past few games, he seems to have gotten into a groove on his running style again. ON ANOTHER NOTE.

    Been working alot and see I have missed alot of COMPLAINING. Alot of it is justified, BUT for the calls to replace Whiz….. ( grabs shotgun off the couch )

    Your going to have to go through me…

    But seriously, I wish alot of fans could see the cardinal team that has progressed in the 22 years I have been in the valley. Whiz is building up a good solid team, is he going to pick a bad player or coach for the team? Sure he is, you can only attain the best available. He seems to stick to that in all that he does.

    Everyone says we need a better line…. Did anyone watch the draft this year????
    We picked up so many linemen, Whiz and Grimm, KNOW that.

    Whiz wanted a strong defense first and foremost. Its not just HORTON. Whiz picked ALOT of good young guys his first few years and then invested into a great coach. WHIZ built the defence…..Give the credit to his wits. AND honestly,
    KOLB is pretty dam good, I dont think they missed the mark at all. I mean, who should replace KOLB? I dont see any bright stars out there.

    SO FANS, STOP asking them to fire coach WHIZ. I love the cards, and dont
    want my team all jacked up again. We need stability at head coach, and we
    have a GREAT ONE.

    If anyone’s looking for a silver lining in this never-ending dark cloud, I’ll offer the re-emergence of Howling as a weapon. Granted, jury’s out big time on whether Whis and his yes man Miller have a clue how to use this guy as we watch play after play after play where they think he’s a fullback, but when he gets the ball in space he can do some serious damage.

    LaRod Stephens-Howling #36
    5ft. 7inches Tall
    Listed as 185 lbs. How many more times does this Man have to show how GOOD he is!
    The Man Needs A Contract, Please?

    Powell is not doing bad either and if Wells can help for the rest of the season that would be a plus.

    I agree, ” We need stability at head coach, and we have a GREAT ONE.”

    GO CARDS!!!

    The new coach may not need a specialty back. We waste a lot of roster spots on TE and other weak spots already. Can’t handcuff the new guy nothing against the hyphen

    CORMAC: Three straight seasons with losing streaks of six games or more means all is well and that anyone who suggests maybe it’s time for (individually or collectively) Graves, Whis, Miller and Grimm to hit the road are stupid? If so, when does it end? Five straight years? Seven? Twelve?

    If you cannot see the change in the culture and attitude of the cardinals, then you will never understand my explanation of WHY Whiz is such a good head coach. I Do think we should try and get Todd Haley back. We are missing a good offensive head coach.
