SAME OLD STORY

- - - - - For the second straight week, the Cardinals lose on the final play, this time to the pathetic Atlanta Falcons to preserve a losing streak in Georgia dating back to the 1993 season finale under Joe Bugel as the Phoenix Cardinals. Sure, fans will rejoice given that the team has protected its draft position, since of course, THIS time our first round pick will be the one that propels us to dynastic glory. Let those fans, however, refrain from complaining when they hear about ugly losing streaks, a paucity of leads in all-time series, and other such trapping of futility over the team's history.
- - - - - Sure, Blough looked serviceable enough, but against a poor team so that it is difficult to take much out of the performance. I suppose the Cardinals saw enough in practice to put him ahead of McSorely on the depth chart, otherwise how to explain elevating a guy new to the team over one who has had months to familiarize himself with the playbook. A new long-snapper has further emphasized the importance of the injured Aaron Brewer, with most kicking snaps coming out low and salvaged only by the extraordinary holding ability of Andy Lee (though I cannot say how much the snapping may have contributed to the one missed field goal and the blocked punt).

NEXT WEEK, SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS: The finale holds importance to the 49ers who are vying for a potential one-seed in the NFC playoffs. For the Cardinals, well, it is more of the same. No prediction this week.

"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.
