Cardinals Embarrassed In Philly 48-20

I thought long and hard how I would describe this one.  I decided for sure I couldn’t pick one or two words, it was a long laundry list of things that went wrong Thursday night.

Kurt Warner.  You can’t place all the blame on him.  However, we can now put to rest the MVP talk.  MVP’s don’t throw 3 interceptions in primetime against average teams.

Turnovers.  See Kurt Warner.  Although my 18 month old had an easier time holding on to his ball last night than Anquan Boldin did.  Not a good time to pick up a case of the dropsies.

Tackling.  I’ve talked about this several time this season.  I’m not sure who coached these boys on how to tackle, but it sure wasn’t someone with football knowledge.

Running.  Let’s just stop pretending this team wants to find balance.  16 yards.  16 yards!  Are you kidding me? 

Edge.  Again he didn’t play at all.  Let’s just cut our losses there and stop pretending he is still part of the team by allowing him to dress for games. 

Donovan Mcnabb.  This guy threw three interceptions earlier this week and was benched.  The Cards made him look like the MVP.  The Cards defense was despicable.  They allowed Philly to run up and down the field.

Brian Westbrook.  Over 100 yard rushing, 4 tds – 2 rushing and 2 receiving.  Enough said.

I could go on and on, but I wouldn’t be surprised if you hadn’t already stopped reading because this team is becoming more and more of a tragic story rather than a Cinderalla one.  If they aren’t careful, this team is going to be 8-8 heading into the playoffs and easily will be one and done.  I honestly though they would come out prepared, focused, and on top of their game Thursday night after the mistakes that cost them against New York.  Well, they fooled me again.  Don’t let them do that to you.  You may just end up getting your heart broken – or your wallet, trying to follow this team and chasing the dream of making a run in the playoffs.

    Don’t worry there will be better days. You are never as bad as you think you are when you lose, and you are never as good as you think you are when you win. After last week Philadelphia was ready to dump McNabb for a bag of balls and a cheesesteak.

    Arizona will make the playoffs, and once they get there anything is possible.

    We have to admit that the cards still have a Long way to go and not look at the record, I mean have you seen the NFC West this year. Time and time again the cards have proven they cant compete with the better teams in the NFC . We need to let edge go so he can continue his career or trade him for defensive players. Playoffs yeah superbowl ,Not!!!

    I agree with Ian. The Cards have made nice strides this year and Warner does deserve a lot of credit. Go Cards! BTW, the Cardinals are available in the XFL — the best computer football league on the net. Check it out at
