The Arizona Cardinals lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 27-17 in embarrassing fashion on Friday. There was really nothing clicking for the team -- not on offense or defense. The quarterback situation is no clearer than it was before the start of the preseason. It was frustrating for everyone involved.
After the game, many of the players reacted to the loss on Twitter with a mix of frustration and hopefulness. Hit the jump to see what they tweeted.
John Skelton was one of the first. Now don't read too much into the fact that Kevin Kolb didn't tweet anything. He just doesn't tweet.
No need to hit a panic button yet, still three preseason games ahead. But offensively we need to find a way to start faster.— John Skelton (@johnskelton19) August 11, 2012
The offensive line responded as well:
Disappointed with the way the offense played tonight. Gonna start faster and help the D out. Tomorrow's a chance to get better.— Daryn Colledge (@DarynColledge71) August 11, 2012
Frustrated about how tonight went. But not worried at all. We have a great group of men on this team.— Adam Snyder (@ASnyds68) August 11, 2012
Ryan Williams, who didn't play, had something to say. Beans refers to Beanie Wells and JJ refers to Javarris James.
