It’s becoming incredibly difficult to stick with the Arizona Cardinals through what is resembling another disappointing campaign
Some things never seem to change for the Arizona Cardinals. Just one year ago, the squad failed to win a game through the first quarter of the schedule. Now, just 12 months later, the Cards have disappointed their fans again.
With the first four contests of 2019 now in the books, Arizona is one of six winless teams in the NFL. Unlike last season, the club did manage to come out of September with a tie. Some may consider that progress, but their’s no denying that the Cardinals are just plain awful at the present time.
Cards loyalists deserve much more than the sorry product that general manager Steve Keim has assembled over the past few months. Many believed that it couldn’t get worse than the debacle that we witnessed in 2018. There was some thought that all of the losing that Arizona was doing was former head coach Steve Wilks fault, but the problems obviously run much deeper than that.
Keim is primarily to blame for the mess that the Cardinals have become. The three winning campaigns that occurred during his first three years as the boss of the front office are no longer enough. Keim needs to be held accountable for the demise of the franchise, and a playoff drought that is about to reach four seasons.
The one man who has the power to reverse the organization’s fortunes is team President Michael Bidwill. His stubborn loyalty to Keim has impeded the Cards progress. Bidwill’s most powerful employee is presiding over a squad that has earned just three victories in it’s last 20 matchups, a number that’s completely unacceptable.
Perhaps Arizona will rise from the ashes, and play some winning football going forward. The fan base is becoming increasingly frustrated with the team’s inability to record a victory. Cardinals diehards will continue to tune in each week, and hope that Bidwill will somehow right a ship that’s been sinking for quite some time now.
