TEMPE, Ariz. There are weeks to remember, weeks to forget and weeks when you consider a full frontal lobotomy. Yeah. The latter was the Cardinals week. Lets review while stretching the definition of week in a Beatles, eight-days-a-week kind of way. On Dec. 2, following a mind-numbing (we do like to stay consistent with our themes) 7-6 loss to the Jets, defensive tackle Darnell Dockett did something to Kerry Rhodes that may or may not have involved saliva after refusing a direct order from the coaching staff to allow the Jets to score so the Cards could get the ball back and, you know, actually have a chance to win. On Tuesday, the Cardinals cut Valley icon Todd Heap, who insinuated ever so slightly that there was more to the story of his PCL sprain. Heap refused to elaborate, taking the high road in discussing the situation. On Wednesday, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was caught by a group of reporters taking the low road when he chided receiver Andre Roberts for missing practice due to an injury by referring to Roberts as Heap. Later that day, Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt reworked his lesser-of-two-evils rankings for quarterbacks Ryan Lindley and John Skelton and re-anointed Skelton his starter -- for the third time this season. Minutes later, everyones desired starter, Kevin Kolb, made it all but clear that he wont be playing again this season because his ribs are calcifying in a highly unnatural manner. On Friday, word leaked that Dockett would be fined six figures -- perhaps as much as 200,000 -- for his actions against the Jets. On Sunday, with Dockett playing the role of spectator for the early portions of the game as part of his punishment, the Cards turned the ball over eight times and set the franchise record for worst defeat ever in a 58-0 loss in Seattle, raising the calls for Whisenhunts firing to a fevered pitch. And on Monday, Docket declined a chance to profess faith in his head coach. But now were stretching this into a second week, arent we? Follow Craig Morgan on Twitter
