Time for some links, including more on Peyton Manning, and something about the possibility of Hue Jackson being the QB coach.
Arizona Cardinals again connected to QB Peyton Manning
In other news, the Cardinals again were connected to Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. This time, it was ESPN's Adam Schefter, who reported the Cardinals are among the teams expected to show interest if the Colts release Manning. Charlie Casserly of CBS said the same thing a few weeks ago. I have no doubt the Cardinals would be interested in Manning, as would numerous other teams. But former Cardinals guard Alan Faneca said it best this morning via twitter: "Alert to all reporters: the entire NFL, minus the obvious few, will go after Peyton if the Colts dump him." Many things have to happen before Manning could wind up in a Cardinals uniform. Here are a few:

Warner: Cardinals would have to adjust to Peyton Manning - ArizonaSports.com
A healthy Peyton Manning is better than any quarterback currently on the Arizona Cardinals' roster. Manning, who continues to be linked to Arizona should the Colts release him, would bring 54,828 yards passing, 399 touchdowns, a Super Bowl ring and a laser, rocket arm with him to the desert. According to former Cards QB and current NFL Network Analyst Kurt Warner, though, that's not all he'd come with.

Word From the Birds Blog - Working with Wilson and his traps
You’d think at some point Adrian Wilson would have earned his way into ESPN The Magazine’s "Body Issue" but alas, the safety has not. But that didn’t stop E.T.M. from flying the Cards’ Pro Bowl safety out last week to put together a photo shoot and this video about A-Dub’s workouts, philosophy and unreal traps. (I mean, seriously, his trapezius muscles almost don’t look real).

Shawn Marion leads Dallas Mavericks over Phoenix Suns
The Suns looked like they would have a chance at escaping the likelihood of a scheduling loss Monday night. The schedule said the Suns were doomed when they had to face the defending champion Dallas Mavericks after four other road games and 5,000 miles of traveling. Wishful thinking took over when the Suns got two days off before the game and learned that Dallas was holding out Dirk Nowitzki. Wishful thinking is no elixir for the Suns' offensive issues. The Suns shot a season-worst 37.3 percent from the field and committed 19 turnovers to let former Suns forward Shawn Marion's season-high 29 points undo them in a 93-87 Dallas victory Monday night at American Airlines Center.
