The Arizona Cardinals started off on fire including an upset win in week 2 against the New England Patriots on the way to a 4-0 record. However, the Cardinals are 0-3 in their last three games. Can the Cardinals be falling back to earth, or is it a bump in the road? A questionable running back situation, a running quarterback competition, and a defense looking for help from the offense, seems to be slowing the Cardinals down. Whisenhunt spoke to KTAR in Phoenix with Doug and Wolf about the recent slide, and the mindset of the Cardinals.

“I think if you look at the way the games went, certainly Buffalo with the kick, we would’ve had that one. I think if we would’ve made a couple plays [Sunday] — for instance, if we make the two field goals and don’t give up the touchdown on the interception — it’s a different game. So I don’t sense that from our players. I know they feel like we’ve made too many mistakes over the last three games.”

“We can’t make those mistakes. We can’t turn the ball over that leads to a touchdown. We can’t miss field goals. Those are the things that, when you’re on the road against a good football team, you’ve got to not do. So we’ve got to make sure that we continue to focus on those things.”

“I think that just the inconsistency of it. We’ve had the opportunity to make some plays and we haven’t been able to do that. And I think one of the things that’s most frustrating is we’ve been on the plus side of the 50 a number of times this year and we haven’t capitalized on that. In order for us to be more consistent and more productive offensively, we need to be able to do that. … Those are the kind of things that you’ve really got to work hard to improve on. If we do that, it’ll certainly put us in better position to get on a roll.”
