THE PITS

- - - - - The Cardinals' final regular-season appearance at the Georgia Dome was anything but peachy, with the game ending as every other contest has in this stadium, with a Cardinals loss. This time, the loss drops Arizona to 4-6-1 and precariously close to playoff elimination. Of course, even with a dramatic winning streak to close out the season, I think we all see the indicators that we just aren't a very good team.
- - - - - As the game dragged on, the defense seemed to lose its focus and larger chunks of yardage were surrendered, leading to the final margin. The turning point took place after special teams committed its obligatory debacle, jumping offsides on a punting play to give up the first down. Unforgivable -- ending any realistic chance at a comeback and dooming the franchise to what appears to be another wasted season. With the Cubs winning their championship this season, it looks like the Cardinals are content to carry the banner of North America's losingest franchise for a while longer. Nothing lovable about this bunch, though.

NEXT WEEK, WASHINGTON REDSKINS: The sixth playoff spot s currently held by the Redskins and their 6-4-1 record. A loss by the Cardinals will put the team on the cusp of playoff elimination and we are barely into December. A win keeps things going for a few weeks as it would shift tie-breakers to our side (the only tie-breaker to likely matter in wild card scenarios unless we tie again). My prediction: Cards win, 19-18.

"The Cardinals Are Charging" was written for both the St. Louis Baseball and Football Cardinals on June 29, 1960. Although the baseball team stopped using the march several years later, the fight song can still be heard at all home football games for the now Arizona Cardinals. The music and words were composed by songwriters Irving Bibo (1889-1962) and Larry Kent. Originally, the lyrics had "all St. Louis" in place of "Arizona" (Line 7), and "St. Louis" instead of "Arizona" (Line 8). Download from the following versions: Real Audio, and MIDI.
