A look at the Arizona Cardinals collapse
There's an old saying in football that says no matter how bad a team is, they always get up and play their hardest in games against division rivals. Apparently, the Arizona Cardinals never heard that saying before. Or they did and just didn't care about it. Whatever it is, the Cardinals should be absolutely embarrassed for last Sunday's performance against the Seattle Seahawks. It's one thing to lose big on the road, it's another to not even show up to play which is essentially what Arizona did last week. The Cardinals are a far cry from the team that surprised a lot of people and started the season 4-0. They have lost nine straight games and have an offense so anemic that a Pop Warner team could seemingly shut them down. But before we look at this unbelievable string of losses, let's look at just how they managed to start 4-0 in the first place despite being so bad. It's not like the Cardinals just started playing poor during the season, they've been bad since week one. In the first four games, the Cardinals, despite being out-gained by an average of 357-271 per game, somehow outscored their opponents approximately 23-15. They hit the 100 yard rushing mark once, and passed for more than 200 yards twice in their four wins. So how did they win anything?
