Losing culture?
There are about five NFL caliber players on this team.
Agreed. However, our coaches were given a 21-point, late 3rd quarter advantage and could not determine how to put what limited talent we have in place to finish. Moreover, it seems that loser franchises have these signature moments enough that when things seem to begin unraveling, they indeed quickly do. Yet another all around embarrassing disaster for this organization.

As a bettor no way I put money down on the Cardinals for either of those games. Now the next two, I’d easily fork over funds giving up the points:)

DVOA says the Cards are better than 0-2

so there is that

the team looks exactly like a high effort, well coached team that doesnt have enough talent

they can hang with teams for 3 quarters and then the coaching advantage wrinkles get figured out and fatigue takes the "try harder" edge off

I would agree for 6 of the 8 quarters. The second half of that game, bar the scoring drive, the coaching was atrocious. Not figured out, just purposefully turtling. Otherwise I agree and have been pleasantly surprised.

How do you see the “well-coached” part? We’re near the top of the league in penalties.

Still really early on DVOA; the one-score nature of these losses will push us closer to .500 because one play here or there changes the outcome.

I wouldn't go as far as to say well coached, but I would say coached better than expected.
