Search around and you won’t find many fans believing this season’s edition of the Arizona Cardinals will have much success
Over the past couple of days, local media, national media, they’ve all been talking about teams and their hopes for the upcoming 2019 season. That includes the Arizona Cardinals as they prepare to open camp on Wednesday with first full team practice on Thursday.
The USA Today put out their prediction today of the Cardinals finishing 3-13. That seems to be more than rule rather than the exception with predictions across the country with fans and media.
Our official predictions will come out later in camp and preseason after we’ve had a chance to see who looks to remain on the Cardinals roster. Right now, they sure look better than they did last season.
They went 3-13 last year but let’s look into that 3-13 a little bit. Yes, they were painful at times to watch last season, really painful. However look at the games they were in until late.
They blew fourth quarter leads to Chicago, Seattle, Oakland, and after tying the Seahawks in the final minutes of the season finale, they lost on a late field goal. Then they had the Kansas City Chiefs on the ropes until the fourth quarter.
They actually had a chance to take the lead down 20-14 in the fourth against the Chiefs. If that team can do that given just how bad they were, imagine what this team can do.
Of course it is a season to season proposition but the Cardinals did address a number of problems in the offseason. They still find themselves a bit thin in certain areas but they didn’t seem to get any worse.
It’s fun to see just how much of a disparity there is in predictions from person to person locally. many leaning towards the 3-6 win range. That is likely because there is so much unknown. That is what is going to make this preseason exciting.
