Cardinals Impressive So Far

As I mentioned yesterday, I expected the Cardinals to play worse than they did, but I’m glad I was wrong.  They are the talk of the NFC West – so far.  It’s still way too early to get extremely excited, however after 0-2 starts for Seattle and St. Louis, you have to like where the Cardinals are heading. 

What others are saying today about your Cardinals:

ESPN.com NFC West Blogger Mike Sando saysBoldin and Larry Fitzgerald make life much easier for Warner. They catch contested balls consistently and gain yardage after the ball is in their hands. The combination is tough to beat when Warner is making the right decisions under pressure. Through two games, Warner has not suffered an interception or lost a fumble. He suffered 17 interceptions and six lost fumbles in 14 games last season.”

Kent Somers, Arizona Republic says “Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald are pretty good, and the Cardinals offensive coaches can hold their own when it comes to game planning.”

Michael Cunningham, South Florida Sun-Sentinel  says “There are plenty of Dolphins deficiencies to choose from in the 31-10 loss at Arizona on Sunday. But none was more glaring than how the Cardinals easily rang up passing yards and points from the start against the Dolphins’ experienced secondary.”

It’s nice to read positives about the Cardinals for a change.  Hopefully it will continue with two consecutive weeks back east in Washington and New York the next two weeks!

Go Cards!

    i have been burned by this franchise too many times to count…but the vibes coming from this year’s team and the manner in which they dispensed with the Niners and Fish have led to never-before-seen confidence…at least for this long suffering AZ homer.

    You said it Mr. Tunes!  That was the one thing I saw yesterday – confidence.  They haven’t turned the ball over and Warner couldn’t have played any better than he did yesterday.  Let’s hope it continues!

    Remember, we have played two of the worst two teams in the league. (I will admit the 49ers may be better than that, but just barely)  I want to believe in this team.  I definately believe in this coaching staff.  I want to see them do the things against good teams that they did against the 49ers.  I am hoping for an 8-8 season, but with the Seahawks freefall, we may be looking at a playoff season.  Either way, they were competative yesterday.  Let’s keep it close, and take a few!

    I’m with the Cards.

    They are almost always competative.  They were competative in all but one game last season – the game in Seattle was really the only game they were never in.  They need to start turning close games into victories though.  They blew it yesterday.  You are right though, in the weak NFC West 8-8 might get it done.

    Like the Cards chances. Since 2002, NFL teams that lose in primetime on the road (Jets) and then return home to face a foe that lost the previous week are just 10-26 (28%) ATS. Favre still has not grasped the Jets’ offense.
