No close call this time. The Arizona Cardinals' fourth consecutive loss, a 34-10 drubbing by previously winless Minnesota, was the team's worst performance of the season.
The Cardinals (1-4) are 6-15 since Kurt Warner retired, and with a bye week ahead, there is no shortage of work to be done.

That kind of talk made some sense when Arizona's first three losses were by a combined eight points. There wasn't much evidence to back him up in Minnesota, though, where the Vikings led 28-0 in the first quarter.

After a 1-4 start, some Cardinals fans are looking for pitchforks, torches and MapQuest directions to the team's headquarters in Tempe.
At least we wont have to hear all week how the Cardinals are close to breaking through. Theyre not. Theyre done. Season over.
Think thats hyperbole? Fine. Go ahead and delude yourself. Were not buying the line anymore that there are plenty of games left to play. The sky has already fallen.
