Well, that was the easy part of the schedule. The Arizona Cardinals went 1-2 in the three easiest games of the season. If that was easy, I’m afraid of what October, November, and December bring. Oh sure, still plenty of opportunities to find wins, but now the sledding gets tougher. The New York Giants come to town this week. They just beat the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Cards are a work in progress. One week the defense is bad. The next week the offense takes a vacation. They have to put it together and they need a coaching staff that can call a better game. The play calling this past week was partly to blame in the Cards loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
However the month of October brings the Giants at home, at Minnesota Vikings, Pittsburgh Steelers at home, and at the Baltimore Ravens. Yeah, doesn’t exude much confidence in getting wins does it? It is what it is though and the Cards are going to have to find at least a couple of wins in there to stay competitive, even in a weak NFC West. I certainly give the Cards a chance to win each of those games, including the Giants. It’s not like the Cards have gotten blown away. They’ve lost their two games by a combined four points. They can overcome, but they’d better put it together soon.
