"The Cardinal" Bio
The Playoff Race
IN A FOG
- - - - - It was clear after the first two possessions that this game would not end well for the Cardinals. A missed field goal attempt set the tone and the team played out the remaining fifty minutes with all the cheerful enthusiasm of a dreary London day. Much like in the game against the Eagles, Arizona's defense went out of its way to get themselves out of position, always two steps behind and seeming to make no effort to tackle.
- - - - - The injury to Carson Palmer may be the final straw for the rest of the team to mail it in. His play wasn't the problem, nor will his replacement be the fix. I have confidence in Drew Stanton's ability to hold down the fort, but he needs protection. Behind this offensive line, even the ghost of Joe Montana would find it difficult to score a single point.
NEXT WEEK, @ SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS: After a bye found the Cardinals' coaching staff intact, the team and I travel to Santa Clara for the rematch with the still-winless 49ers. We will find out if the squad has really mailed it in for the season and if the coaches have truly lost the players. No prediction this week, and really all I expect to get from this roadtrip is the ability to cross off one more team from my list of franchises to visit. Four more to go after this one.
