Some more people have moved over to the “legit” category instead of the “fluke” category when it comes the Arizona Cardinals and their surprise 3-0 start.  When you look at the defense, it is no surprise.  The Cards defense has allowed just 14 touchdowns in the past 12 regular season games.  So what are other saying now that the Cards have had another victory against a good team?

Skip Bayless @RealSkipBayless :  “The Arizona Cardinals are LEGIT”

Tim Ryan, SiriusXM NFL Radio: “We gotta deal with the facts here, they gotta be ranked three or four (power rankings) and no lower than that”

Pete Prisco @PriscoCBS : “Impressive Cardinals today. First time 3-0 since 1974? Jim Hart. Terry Metcalf. Pat Tilley. Mel Gray.”

Trey Wingo @wingoz : “Things have changed since last 3-0 start for Cardinals. Team was in St. Louis, Gerald Ford was President. and @markschlereth was NFL rookie”

Mike Sando, ESPN’s NFC West blogger is even chaning his itinerary thanks to the Cards 3-0 start.  He was scheduled to go to St. Louis for their division opener next Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.  He is now coming to Arizona for the game against the Miami Dolphins.  3-0 changes a lot of things.  4-0 would change everything.
