  The Arizona Cardinals are playing some of the worst football in recent history. After somehow lucking their way into winning their first four games of the season, they have now rattled off nine straight losses and look to be going nowhere fast as they placed Kevin Kolb on the IR this week and anointed Ryan Lindley his replacement.  The Cardinals are a team that will find themselves in the off-season mix for a slew of different options under centre. From Vick to Alex Smith and Matt Flynn. Or maybe Geno Smith or Matt Barkley? Whoever they go after, rest assured that they will not deal with another season of the debacle that they have dealt with this year.  The offensive line is a disaster, the running game is a Beanie Wells type disaster and the defence can only do so much when their attack struggles to throw for 200 a game. Beanie and LaRod Stephens-Howling are hardly the one-two combination that strikes fear into the heart of opponents.  Arizona has not scor...

Vince Young would be an upgrade for Cardinals

It's no secret that the Cardinals have one of the worst offensive lines in all of football, they have given up the most sacks out of any team in 2012 and fail to block for their running backs, making them have the worst running game in the NFL as well.  This is the exact reason why Vince Young would be the perfect fit for the Cardinals now.  Young is a fast mobile quarterback...

Lindley is having a disappointing season thus far, having already thrown five interceptions without...

Arizona Cardinals: Time to Blow it up and Start Over in the Desert

After watching some of the Seahawks and Cardinals game this past Sunday, I couldn’t help but wonder just how in the hell Arizona started off the season 4-0 and were talking about the playoffs. With the 58-0 whacking they took in Seattle, they continued their second streak of the season; a nine game losing streak. To try and pinpoint just where this team went wrong is a daunting...
