Arizona Cardinals fail to show up, lose 34-0
It was all bad for the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday as they were outcoached and outplayed for the second week in a row
There’s no sugar coating. The Arizona Cardinals are an awful football team in all phases. After holding the Los Angeles Rams to no score in the first quarter, it was all downhill from there.
The Rams scored 19 in the second quarter en route to a 34-0 blowout. Nothing positive to talk about after this one.
The Cardinals offense did absolutely nothing. Quarterback Sam Bradford was awful, again. He went 17-27 for 90-yards. He threw a fourth quarter interception.
The offense didn’t cross midfield all day until there were 15 seconds left in the game. They had three timeouts remaining but showed no effort to at least try to get on the scoreboard. None.
That was the most disappointing part of it all. We knew going in the Rams were a much better team. However when you are behind in talent in spots and effort is all you have, then go with that.
For whatever reason, coach Steve Wilks showed little fire, little effort to score at the end when maybe they could have at least attempted a field goal. It was a zero game all around.
The defense looked like they were little better against the run early. However Rams running back Todd Gurley still scored three touchdowns, so whatever argument you have for being better against the run overall is void.
The defense couldn’t tackle. They had wide open holes in the secondary. They couldn’t get off the field, even in third and long situations.
Everything that could have gone wrong, has gone wrong. They’ve been outscored 58-6 over the first two weeks. That’s worst in the NFL.
Maybe there was something to people predicting 0-16? I still don’t believe that will happen. Still don’t believe there isn’t enough talent to win. However something needs to change and at least act like they care about the horrid start.
