Four games into the 2012 season, Arizona was undefeated and Kevin Kolb looked like he might be turning into the quarterback the Cardinals hoped he would be when acquiring him from Philadelphia.
But a loss to St. Louis in week five and an injury to Kolb during a defeat against Buffalo turned the tide on the season and the Cardinals never recovered, losing 11 of 12 and finishing in last place in the NFC West. The collapse cost Rod Graves and Ken Whisenhunt their jobs and ushered in yet another new era in the desert.
There’s plenty of talent on this roster, however, with guys like Patrick Peterson on defense and Larry Fitzgerald on offense, which made the job eventually won by Bruce Arians a coveted one. Arians and his crew are high on this team’s potential and many think the Cardinals are just solid play at quarterback away from being a contender in the NFC. Tyler Nickel, a manager for Revenge of the Birds, shared his thoughts.
