State Of The Cardinals-Bye Week

October 3, 2009 by

The Arizona Cardinals came into the season wanting to not only solidify their status as a contender, but to improve and become a consistently good team. They have not done that. They look like the same team that went 9-7 before getting hot in last season’s playoffs. They look like the same team that could utterly dominate one week only to self destruct the next.

The Bye Week’s objectives are therefore fairly obvious. Correct the errors. Get back to basics. Do the things you did so stellar last postseason. Find a way to develop consistency.Pierre Garcon embarrasses DRC with a lethal stiff arm
