Maybe it was all a mirage?  The first four games are looking more and more like a fantasy for the Arizona Cardinals.  They are being exposed in all the areas we thought they would when the season started.  Poor offensive line play, poor quarterbacking, and poor defense have all done the Cards in so far this afternoon, trailing the Buffalo Bills 9-3 at the end of the first quarter.

Kevin Kolb got a nice 3-0 lead thanks to a Fred Jackson fumble to start the game off, but it was all downhill from there.

Kolb was sacked, again, this time for a safety.  It gave the Bills two points and dropped the Cards lead 3-2.  That lead didn’t last much longer.  The Bills on the drive following the safety, took the ball right down the field in what appeared to be a non-existent Cards defense and took a 9-3 lead.

It may be a very long afternoon for the Cards.  They have not started off well for the third straight week.  I’m not sure what they are practicing on during the week, but clearly it has nothing to do with playing good, sound football.
