I suspect as the weeks fly by in the NFL; the Arizona Cardinals will eventually disappear from the landscape of being considered a team worthy of ranking in this poll. In fact, it is also possible that Arizona wins just two more times the rest of the season.Thats not to take anything away from the Cards and their 4-0 start. However, if you did not believe their 4-0 start was smoke and mirrors, than you were watching yourself smoke something in the mirror.
The Cardinals were not lighting the world on fire with their offense when they hit 4-0 and they sure as hell have not since. What it did do during their unbeaten start was score at least 20 points in each game. Since then, Arizona has lost three straight to teams that were a combined 11-37 last season and scored just 33 points during the span.
Things may get a lot worse in the next three weeks, the Cards will play the 49ers, Packers and Falcons and it is safe to say, let the rebuilding begin, again.
It was nice to see the Cards at least once this season in this poll.
