TEMPE, Ariz. -- It's been a productive day speaking with players at Cardinals headquarters. I'll be heading to the airport shortly and diving back into the blog Tuesday morning.

First, a quick tour around the NFC West: 

Andrew Perloff of quotes Cardinals defensive end Bertran Berry as saying Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan failed to vary his snap count, allowing Arizona defenders to get a jump off the line of scrimmage.

Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat says the 49ers' new radio play-by-play announcer prefers spontanaity to having signature calls.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee says the 49ers can pretty much forget about adding Norv Turner or Donovan McNabb this offseason.

Clare Farnsworth of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer clears up confusion over Seneca Wallace's contract with the Seahawks.

Rob Staton of says drafting a quarterback in the first round might not be a bad idea for the Seahawks.

Also from Staton: He passes along information about Texas Tech receiver Michael Crabtree's draft plans. Staton's mock draft sends Crabtree to Seattle in the fourth overall spot.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch cites reports as saying Jim Fassel is scheduled to interview for the Rams' head coaching job.
