The Arizona Cardinals all but eliminated themselves from 2016 playoff contention on Sunday
This season was supposed to be the time the Arizona Cardinals shined, top what they accomplished in 2015. It has turned into anything but that.
After sloppy 26-23 loss to the Miami Dolphins, the Cardinals are all but assured they will miss the 2016 postseason, although the Seattle Seahawks are doing their best to keep the NFC West within reach mathematically.
Let’s be honest here. The Cardinals are going to have to make a lot of changes in 2017. Not just because they won’t be able to pay all of their own free agents but because it will be necessary.
There are changes that will need to be made on offense. There will be defensive changes necessary and most of all, the Cardinals will need to address their special teams issues.
The Cardinals will see a lot of turnover on the roster next season. Hopefully it is all for the better and they can make another run at the playoffs in 2017. All is not lost, especially being in a weak NFC West.
Here are five changes the Cardinals must make to improve next season however. They shouldn’t make moves for the sake of change but make moves because they are the right thing to do.
