Bruce Arians: Loss to Rams 'a little hard to swallow' when team doesn't come through in fourth quarter

The team has consistently won these games in the past, believed they would do it again. The loss the Arizona Cardinals suffered to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday was difficult. Yes, the Rams led from start to finish,  but Cardinals fans are used to the team winning this kind of game. They have done it many times. Carson Palmer felt they would get the win. "I thought we felt we could win the game the entire game, even after we turned it over on downs on the last drive," he said. But the Cardinals couldn't pull it off and there were plenty of reasons why. "We can't play situational football...

Cardinals vs. Rams: Player of the Game Poll

Hopefully, this week four loss serves as a wakeup call to the Cardinals. Even in the loss, some players did in fact turn up to play football.  Let's take a look at the Player of the Game nominees: 1) Chandler Catanzaro - Kicker Despite what seemed like a million trips to the Red Zone, Carson Palmer and the offense failed to capitalize even once, and Catanzaro was called to task.  Luckily for the team, he was perfect on the day, nailing all five of his attempts and an extra point for a total of 16 points.  His longest FG was 42 yards.  While it was frustrating to see the team miss so...

Andy Dalton continues lights-out start in high-scoring win over Chiefs

Another big game from Andy Dalton led to another big win for the undefeated Bengals. Andy Dalton simply looks like the NFL's most improved quarter through the first four weeks of the NFL season. Regardless of what your opinion of Dalton was coming into this season, you cannot deny he looks like a different quarterback than what he was in his first four seasons. His first three games were easily the best start to his career, and he continued that with another great performance against the Chiefs. Dalton finished this game completing 17 of 24 passes (71 percent) for 321 yards and one score...

Carson Palmer is a quitter and deserves no pity

Recently we heard the sad story of a quarterback who was shunned by the league because he stood up to a big bad owner. I think that take is a load of crap. Earlier this week I read through the Michael Silver article on NFL.com and Jason Marcum's thoughts of Carson Palmer and his departure from the Bengals. I read the article a few times and each time it elicited the same reaction. Carson Palmer is an asshole. Now don't get me wrong, I am all for players doing what's best for them and milking every dime out of a career that could leave them in much worse shape than when they started, but...

Week 4 Cincy Jungle staff picks for every NFL game

Week 3 was much more kind to our prognostications. You could've actually made money listening to us for once. Now it's time to see if that magic can roll over into Week 4. After looking at the Week 4 results, I was saddened that I didn't fly to Vegas beforehand and rattle off a 10 game parlay on a $100 ticket and cash in. My counterparts probably felt the same as only one panelist got less than 10 games correct. Coincidentally, that panelist picked Cincinnati to lose. Even more coincidentally, Jason Marcum has once again picked Cincinnati to lose. He has only picked the Bengals to win once...

Carson Palmer recalls clashing with Mike Brown, moving on from Bengals

Seeing Carson Palmer revive his career with the Cardinals has been a good story, and even Bengals fans should appreciate it. Everyone knows Carson Palmer's time with the Bengals didn't end well. After years of frustration with how the team was run and a lack of consistent winning like Cincinnati now features, Palmer demanded a trade in the 2011 offseason with the threat of retirement if it didn't happen. And, well, we all know the rest of that story. Palmer's clash with owner Mike Brown led to him eventually being traded to Oakland, and after a failed stint there, he's now having success...

Bobby Massie will start for Arizona Cardinals vs. San Francisco 49ers

Bruce Arians cites too many hits on Carson Palmer, but there is supposedly going to be a short leash. Most people probably didn't catch it, but Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians made an announcement regarding the offensive line. On the team's weekly TV show "Flight Plan," (as noted on AZCardinals.com) he announced Bobby Massie would start at right tackle, replacing Earl Watford, who started there two games while Massie was suspended. It appears to have come down to protecting starting quarterback Carson Palmer. Arians had spoken previously about both Massie and Watford, stating...

49ers vs. Cardinals preview: San Francisco has to be the 1st team to sack Carson Palmer

Carson Palmer has had great protection through two weeks, and he's among the best in the league at taking advantage of that great protection. The 49ers need to get to him if they want a shot at winning in Week 3. In case you weren't aware: Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is pretty good at this whole "football" thing. For everything he's been through over the course of his career, for all of the talk of him being past his prime and being injury prone, Palmer has looked generally unstoppable through two games in 2015 and like his six starts last season, the Cardinals are unbeaten...
