After two straight losses to teams in transition, the Arizona Cardinals have proven they too belong in that mold.

The Arizona Cardinals decided to throw us a mirage in Weeks One and Two. They upset the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers in a 24-20 thriller. They defeated the Washington Football Team by two scores.

And expectations rose among all of us in the Red Sea. We thought the Cardinals would’ve been 4-0 at this point. With the New York Jets serving as fodder before a Week Six showdown with the Dallas Cowboys.

Hey, every NFL fan base expects the best out of their team. We are no different. Especially after a hot start to the season. Optimism is natural. And it’s natural to feel disappointed after the Cardinals dropped two straight against the Detroit Lions and Carolina Panthers.

It’s also natural to be a realist about this team. The reality? The Cardinals are a work in progress. Let’s look at four areas that prove this point.
