Very nice, I'm a bit jealous. I think it's great they moved it to Vegas instead of having it in LA. Where in Vegas is it going to be by the way? UNLV?

MGM Grand on the strip, should be good crowds for the games then since it's on the strip.

No. And actually, U.S. Airways will be moving their headquarters to Texas, from what I've read. So the merger isn't a good thing for Phoenix.

From what I understand the naming rights deal has another decade to go. Believe it was signed in 1992 for 30 years at slightly under $1m per year.

Given the current going rates on stadium naming rights I doubt AA just gives it up.

Good to see Doan run away with the gold in Jared Dudley's First Annual Superstar Challenge. Shane laid to waste the likes of Ian Kennedy, Jared Dudley, Diana Taurasi and Bertand Berry.

Grats, Cappy!

I wonder if Adrian Wilson was involved if it would be closer, because when I think of the Cardinals, I think of him, or Larry Fitzgerald, players that have stuck with the Cardinals for a long tie.

Meh, cantaloupe toss, clossest to the pin frizbee, clossest to the pin pitching wedge, soccer kick accuracy, egg toss, corn hole, and the other "leisure" activities might've suited Fitz better than Berry, but let's face it, Doan is running away with it anyway. Soccer? Golf? Yeah, he's not getting beat there.

ASU sneaks out a victory against Colorado. Not that it matters much, they pretty much have to win the Pac-12 tournament to get to the NCAA tournament. Still like to be successful though.

Arizona struggles again against a terrible team but wins. One loss against these high rpi Washington schools and I think a 2 seed is out of the question.

I see the Suns plan to win by getting all twins on their team to confuse the other teams on who to guard.

Cats beat up WSU and Skaggs and David gave up a lot of runs in the Dbacks spring opener.

Cards possibly closing in on deal for Alex Smith from San Fransisco?

I like it if true, good upgrade to Kolb, and Arians seems to be good with QB's

9ers fan here. Compare Kolbs stats to Smiths and they are comparable. Smith has never been able to go deep and needs a strong running game with a short passing game to be successful. Arians relies on a deep passing game so I doubt Smith will work but if it gets the 9ers a second round pick in 2014...go for it. Just hate to see him end his career on a low note. I still rank his top spots as KC then Cleveland followed by Jacksonville.

BUT, US Airways just signed a 5 year lease on the high rise HQ offices in Tempe. Lots of jobs will remain in PHX and Sky Harbor will still be a primary hub for the new AA. We'll lose <1,000 jobs in PHX.

Unless Lebron or Durant have a twin this is seemingly a brilliant move that assures the Suns of getting into the top 3 slots of the Draft Lottery.

As a fellow 49er fan and secondary Cardinal fan.........SF should jump all over this trade for a likely top 40 pick in 2014 (they're going to have about 14 picks in this draft....so waiting for 2014 is smart). For the Cardinals, important to realize that the Niner OL is not coming with Alex.

Kolb is not a gamer. He's a total weenie. It doesn't help that the Cards have the worst line in the league, but he certainly does nothing to endear himself to the team and the fans. When Brian Hoyer shows up off waivers and looks better than you, you have to go. This is not some young guy with great potential we are talking about. He isn't suddenly going to get better.

Alex Smith can ball. I like that he wasn't happy about sitting. But I wouldn't give up a 2nd this year. They need to take OT Eric Fisher @7 and then see which QB they like best in the 2nd.

If the Chiefs get Smith, they will take Joeckel @1 and there's no one who really needs a QB until the Cardinals. So you could have Alex Smith and a great lineman, or Geno Smith (he can throw it deep) and keep whatever you planned to give up.

I'd go with Geno.

Hard to believe any team is going to waste a Top 15 pick on a QB in this draft...if there was a question before there should be none now after the past week in Indy. Fisher would be a terrific/wise pick, if was the Cardinals I would then pick Warford/G from Kentucky in Rd 2......absolute stud....and now you've built the foundation of a strong OL, 3rd round take your shot at QB like Bray, Renfree, etc. Not sure the #7 or #8 QB is much different than #1 or #2.

I disagree. Geno did nothing to hurt his status and looked great. He was putting up RG3 numbers before his team faded down the stretch. I happened to have that WV-Baylor game on and he looked ridiculously good. If Arians, a noted QB developer, thinks he can coax more of that out of Smith, you can't pass on him. Some mocks have Joeckel and Fisher going before #7 after Fisher's impressive workout, so a team may force the Cardinals into taking Geno.

About the worst thing they could do is take Barkley at 7 or in the 2nd. He can't throw for ****, isn't mobile and has some questions surrounding him.

I'd take Geno and cut Kolb just to bury the past a little more. They need to distance themselves from that disgraceful period.
