Once, there may have been no job in America that Lee Thomas would rather have had than general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. But that was nearly a decade ago - in a very different time, before Thomas ever left the Cardinals to become general manager of the Phillies. Yesterday, however, Lee Thomas' onetime dream job opened up again when the Cardinals fired Dal Maxvill after nine years as GM. And one of the first names to pop to the top of the rumor circuit, naturally, was that of James Leroy Thomas.

If there's a lesson for the Cardinals to learn from the New York Giants' defensive game plan in last week's 27-0 loss to the Eagles, it is that LeSean McCoy and the Eagles' ground attack are still potent against even or minus-one numbers in the box. Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell chose, for the most part, to keep his safeties in coverage, and the Eagles made him pay. McCoy rushed for 149 yards, and a collective sigh of relief seemed to...

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 7 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals at Raiders. With a 250-yard, two-TD, zero-INT performance in his return last week, Palmer signaled that he can be trusted in your lineup. Justin Forsett, RB, Ravens vs. Falcons. Operating mostly under the radar, Forsett has gained the fourth-most rushing yards in the league, with a whopping 6.4 yards-per-carry average. Though Bernard Pierce is sharing carries, Forsett is clearly the alpha back in Baltimore.

Cardinal Dougherty used a stifling zone defense to hold visiting Archbishop Wood to 22 points in three quarters en route to a 59-38 Catholic League Northern Division victory yesterday. The Cardinals (3-0 league, 9-3 overall) used a 9-point first quarter performance by forward Tony Fleming to take a 17-7 lead. The Cardinals extended their lead to 34-17 at halftime. Fleming led the Cardinals with 13 points, while guard Bob Coppolino added 11. Center Rodger Tabb had 10. Center Ray Schultz paced Wood (0-4, 3-10)

By most standards, the Eagles have one of the most effective defenses in the NFL. The numbers are telling - third in the league in total defense, first in the NFC. In the postseason, the Birds are first against the pass. That sets up interesting matches in Sunday's NFC Championship Game between Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald against Eagles corners Sheldon Brown and Asante Samuel. Both Brown and Samuel are 5-10. Fitzgerald is 6-3. With Anquan Boldin out against Carolina last Saturday and questionable this week because of a hamstring injury, Fitzgerald likely will be the main focus of the Eagles' defense.

There is no charming or creative name attached to the offense that Bruce Arians brought with him when he became the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals last season. It is an offense, however, that usually has some complimentary adjectives preceding it: Good , effective , innovative , and inclusive immediately come to mind. It's the last of those adjectives that has forced the face of the Cardinals to adjust to a new way of doing things. Upon entering the NFL as the third overall draft pick in 2004, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald almost immediately became the man in the Arizona offense.

Cary Williams watched the film from the Arizona Cardinals' visit to Lincoln Financial Field last December. He expects to see something similar when the Eagles play in Arizona on Sunday. The Cardinals have the same scheme, same quarterback, and same imposing wide receivers for Williams and Bradley Fletcher to cover. The Eagles escaped with a 24-21 win last season. They prepare for a 5-1 team that has improved its offensive line and running game. "They've got a lot of weapons, and they do a lot of different things on the offensive side of the ball to spread the ball around to all those guys," coach Chip Kelly said.

Mychal Kendricks has missed the last four games, but the Eagles' starting inside linebacker could be back this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. The Eagles return to practice on Tuesday after a full week off. "I'll be in practice this week pushing forward to do what I set out to complete while not seeing this as a setback but as a way forward," Kendricks wrote on his personal website on Monday. Kendricks said after a Week 2 victory to the Indianapolis Colts that his calf had "spasms," but the injury was clearly more serious than spasms.

Wondering whether to start Peyton Manning and Calvin Johnson or to bench Johnny Manziel and Eddie Royal? The network bozos specialize in that kind of advice. If you're looking for help with your real starting lineup conundrums, read on. Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 2.   Watch 'em roll Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals at Giants. The old man proved he's still got some moxie - even scrambling for 29 yards against the Chargers - and it doesn't hurt that he's blessed with a very talented receiving corps.

The Phillies will use the final 32 games to find solutions, and they must know every revelation cannot be franchise-altering. A team on pace for 90 losses will improve in slow (sometimes painful) increments. That elevates a 32-year-old waiver claim with three quality starts against three contenders to exalted status. This summer, two of the worst teams in baseball jettisoned Jerome Williams. He has carved a successful home in the Phillies rotation, with eight more innings in a 7-1 win over St. Louis as the latest evidence.

Ryne Sandberg tried everything, but even using every single position player and each reliever wasn't enough to hold off the St. Louis Cardinals. Matt Carpenter's 12th inning sacrifice fly was the difference during Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park. Sandberg was managing this like it was the seventh game of the World Series. For instance Chase Utley started at second moved to first and went back to second. It was his first time at first base since May 6, 2008.

Initially, it looked like the same old story, with Kyle Kendrick once again having the first-inning blues, but the Phillies righthander showed some true fight. There couldn't have been many believers at Citizens Bank Park when Kendrick allowed three runs before his teammates got to face one of the best pitchers in baseball. Yet Kendrick showed some grit while St. Louis Cardinals righthander Adam Wainwright scuffled uncharacteristically through six laborious innings. The Cardinals ace couldn't hold the lead while Kendrick regrouped during the Phillies' 5-4 win on Friday.

When the Eagles hired Bill Davis, the immediate impulse was to check his record as a defensive coordinator. It was not promising. At two previous stops, Davis' defenses never stood among the best in the NFL, never were more than middling in major statistics, and mostly ranked near the bottom. There was obvious concern that the offensive- and special-teams-minded Chip Kelly had chosen the wrong man to head the side of the ball he spends the least amount of time directing. A year later, Davis appears to have quelled some of the initial fears that were compounded by a slow start last season.
