Arizona on’s List of Surprises

facebooktwitterreddit NFL columnist Mike Sando has taken notice of the Arizona Cardinals in his week 5 observations. Here’s what he had to say:

“Add the New York Giants and Arizona Cardinals to the list of surprise teams five weeks into the NFL season…….. celebrating renewal in Week 5. Each is having just enough fun to qualify as dangerous.

The Cardinals, 3-2 after keeping the St. Louis Rams winless, inched ahead of the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West. Holding off a desperate division rival on the road qualifies as progress for new Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt. Arizona, an upset winner over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 4, lost these types of games in the past….”

Sando has it exactly right. In years past the Cards have had the lead going into the final few minutes several times and we found a way to give the game away to the other guy. Even this year, we had the lead over San Francisco with just over 3 minutes to play, and we let it slip by us. So we can see how much this team has progressed in such a short amount of time since that week one loss.

And now, according to some people out there……..we’re dangerous in the NFC. GO CARDS!!!
