Stallings was a decent coach, but he blew that game. From his college years, he was thinking that the clock stops after a 1st down to set the ball. Not in the NFL. So the clock ran out. I remember screaming at the TV.

Cardinals were a huge disappointment in 85. After just missing out in 84, a lot of people thought the Cardinals would win the NFC East. The OL was in shambles, and Lomax got sacked over 50 times. Bidwill was so pissed that he had the locks changed & Hanifin didn’t know he was fired until he tried to get in the building.

'85 was a huge let down. They started out pretty strong with a 3-1 record, but a Monday Night thrashing by the Redskins later that year was the writing on the wall for me.

Sounds like 1991. We start out 2-0 with a punter at QB (Tom Tupa) then get smashed by the Redskins in game 3 and end up 4-12.

I will never forget a news feed/video where Tupa looked into the camera after going 2-0 saying "somethings going on in the desert" Believed that...not the first time or last time I fell for that.:)
