Time for some links and again there is not much to report besides a article about one of the greatest players to ever wear Cardinal Red.

Arizona Cardinals News:

Hall of Fame finalist Aeneas Williams a quiet, steady success
Aeneas Williams and his wife, Tracy, weren't waiting breathlessly by the television earlier this month when this year's finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame were announced. But they heard the good news quickly anyway. They were in a restaurant in the St. Louis area, interviewing someone for a position in their church. "A number of people started walking up to the table and telling me congratulations," Williams said. "I leaned over to my wife and, along with the person we were with, took a moment to give thanks. It was really a quiet moment." Williams, a cornerback for the Cardinals from 1991 through 2000, did most things quietly during his career. He didn't receive a lot of attention partly because the Cardinals had just one winning season in those years, but mostly because it wasn't Williams' style to call attention to himself.

Arizona Sports News:

Shane Doan just misses second hat trick, but Coyotes get back on track with rout of Avalanche
A brutal road stretch behind them, the Coyotes - struggling at home this season - need to make a statement over the next several games, with seven of nine at home. They started that quest in a big way Monday. Shane Doan, who had his first NHL hat trick in his last home game 10 days ago, scored twice to lead a 6-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche at Arena. Doan had company - Boyd Gordon also scored twice, the first time he has done that in his career. Goaltender Mike Smith, who made two tremendous saves, picked up his 17th win of the season, making 37 saves.

Watergate meets Arrowhead, allegedly | ProFootballTalk
On one weekend every year, four highly-significant football games land on the NFL’s center stage. This year, as we were still digesting the epic Saints-49ers finish and a Broncos-Patriots game that never really got started, and while we were anticipating Texans-Ravens and Giants-Packers, the Kansas City Star nearly slipped a potential four-alarm story through the national five hole. According to Kent Babb of the Star, former Chiefs coach Todd Haley believes that the team bugged rooms at the facility and "tampered with" Haley’s phone. (The team denies the accusation.)
