Arizona Cardinals Power Rankings Round Up

After their dismal performance on Sunday, you can be sure to expect a slip in the overall power rankings of the Arizona Cardinals. Last week they were around the 13-19 range in the power rankings. They had just come off a road win against the Jaguars and all seemed good in Cardinal-land. You can throw that assumption out the window along with any kind of national respect from the media. Let's take a look at this week's most recent power rankings.

Yahoo team ranker - This little ranker is actually pretty interesting. It gathers data by have you pick the winners of match ups. It continues asking you match up after match up, and based on all the yahoo users data, it compiles the rankings(which seem quite accurate might I add). The Cardinals are ranked 15th.

The bye week comes at a good time because Kurt Warner is hurting and the Cardinals have much to figure out.

Who’s in bigger trouble – Larry Fitzgerald's brother, or the Cardinals’ offense?

Fox Sports - 19(15)

BETTER THAN RECORD: Welcome to your reality check, Super Bowl losers. Arizona players and coaches have a long bye week to think about their ugly 0-2 start at home, including the free passing clinic conducted by Indy's Peyton Manning in Week 3.

Where's the defense that helped spur the Cardinals' playoff run last January? Arizona is getting gouged through the air, and it's headed for a very long season if it can't improve upon its 31st-ranked pass defense through three games (280.3 yards). This has the makings of a lost season in the desert. You can just feel it coming.

That Super hangover looks very real. They have not played well, especially on defense. It's hard to believe that is the same defense that played so well in the playoff run.
