MARCHING OUT

- - - - - With the 48-41 home loss to the New Orleans Saints, the Cardinals' 2016 campaign has come to an inglorious conclusion. There are two games remaining, but devoid of all playoff implications for Arizona, we will need to start looking towards next year. North America's longest championship drought will continue for at least another year.
- - - - - Offensively, the Cardinals put up six touchdowns, but don't be lulled into a false sense of security. Both teams struggled defensively last Sunday and I am far from convinced that this pattern of scoring will continue. David Johnson continues his streak with 100+ yards from scrimmage for the 14th straight game, setting a new NFL record. Congratulation! Although. . . we did have to artificially burn all our time outs in a hopeless loss versus Carolina to keep the streak alive.
- - - - - While the defense gave up a season-high 48 points, most of my ire is still directed at the special teams. Another missed extra point, awful punting, and offsides penalties on 4th down kicking situations dotted the game tape. This is a pattern, and not just the fault of a single player. It comes down to coaching, and if Bruce Arians is not willing to part ways with his friend, then the Bidwills may need to take matters into their own hands -- interpret that how you like.

NEXT WEEK, @ SEATTLE SEAHAWKS: This season, the Cardinals have been losing to just about every team against which we have a close record in the all-time series. New England, Los Angeles, Minnesota, Atlanta, and New Orleans all handed us losses. Only Tampa Bay was a victory for the Cardinals. On the other hand, we beat Washington, the team that has handed us more losses than any other except the Giants. Now we play Seattle, where the series remains tied at 17-17-1. My prediction, Cards tie, 24-24.

"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.
