12/2 Arizona Cardinals news: No headline can express this disappointment

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

Reactions from around the league after the Cardinals' bow out of the NFL playoff race.

The Cardinals return to stealth mode after spending one week on the national radar. In a "win or you're out" playoff chase, the team's regression against the Philadelphia Eagles was shocking. The team's weaknesses were repeatedly exposed (that's quarterback, tackle, cornerback, and safety) in an effort to remind fans that the team still has some holes after covering them up during a four-game winning streak. Reactions and analysis from the defeat follow.
