We can't get beat on Sunday.

All the other games I can find some reasoning behind the loss, although the more I watch the Giants the harder that 2nd half gets. And the team has general learnt from them and improved most weeks.

It's hard to see any reason why we should lose at home to the Bengals this week.

Every time I visit this thread I put another $5 on the Cards somehow.

This game is a HUGE test of the team's ability to take advantage of a vulnerable opponent.

Without a doubt.

This is a game where we should be able to see tangible proof of progress. And that only comes with a W Sunday. Throw up an L and it’s fair to question just how different this team is from Cards teams of the past.

I think this is overstated. The Cards' offense wasn't a hopeless mess without Kyler Murray. Keim invested HEAVILY in the offense, and Monti and Gannon continued that trend. Our top 4 highest cap charges this season are all offensive players (not counting Murray).

i agree with this

a hallmark of previous Cardinal teams has been wildly inconsistent efforts --

Ja'marr Chase and our suspect corners would be the reason.

Heard a portion of a Mark Sanchez interview on NFL radio, this morning. He was asked about the upcoming Cowboys-49ers game. And he said that he had the AZ-SF game, last week and has Az this week. In answer to whether he's been surprised by the Cardinals, he said that they are playing hard. They should be using Rondale Moore a LOT more. And even though they are playing hard they have to come up with some wins, as it's easy to get discouraged and stop giving maximum effort. Take it for what it's worth.

I think it’s pretty spot on, outside of Rondale. I have no clue how much or how little he should be used at this point.

I found myself disagreeing with most of what Sanchez said during the game.

Example... As a former QB, he didn't understand why the Cards wasted time by not calling a timeout with 1min left in the half. The announcer had to tell Mark it was because they didn't want to give SF the opportunity with the ball back, and/or force SF to call a timeout. Then Mark agrees, and says it was a good idea after we got the first down.

I sat here saying... 'Mark, how do you not know this? You are a QB for eff sake.'
