Its gameday, but the Cards aren't playing. So for those of us who live in Arizona, San Diego and St. Louis is the early game on CBS, then we get Atlanta and Philadelphia as the early game on FOX, and the Panic Bowl: Dallas vs Minnesota on FOX as the late game.

Arizona Cardinals' Kerry Rhodes finding happiness, success in new home
It isn't often that you'll catch an NFL player near team headquarters on a scheduled off day. A few might come in for treatment of an injury, but short of that, players typically stay far away on their precious one day off a week. Unless you happen to be a defensive back playing for the Cardinals.

Penalties doom Phoenix Coyotes in home opener vs. Detroit Red Wings
One young Coyotes fan held up a handmade sign during Saturday night's home opener against the Detroit Red Wings telling of the revenge the home team would act upon its visitors. Mind you, the boy spelled it "revange," but that's beside the point.

For Kerry Rhodes, Hollywood can wait | ProFootballTalk.com
During Kerry Rhodes' final season with the Jets last year, he was frequently criticized for caring more about being a celebrity than being a football player.

The Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals are 0-4 this season and 10-54 (.156) since 2005 in non-division road games kicking off at 10 a.m. PT.

Mailbag: 49ers' talent vastly overrated? - NFC West Blog - ESPN
Mike from Costa Mesa, Calif., writes: Sando, admit it, if it had been known before the season started that Matt Leinart would be replaced as starter after the second exhibition game, that his replacement would only last four regular-season games and that an undrafted rookie would be the Cardinals' starting quarterback in Week 5, no way would you have guessed that Arizona's record going into the bye week would be 3-2. They may be doing it with mirrors, but somehow Ken Whisenhunt has gotten his team still believing and somehow pulling off what seems to me to be one of the most under-reported stories of this NFL season. Given all the challenges due to retirements, free-agent losses, etc., do you agree that if the Cardinals end up winning their division this year and getting into the playoffs for the third straight season, Whisenhunt is the hands-down coach of the year?
