A look back at what one person said was a stretch to win 9 or 10 games this year.....

Keim, Bidwell, and Arians has this team going in the right direction

So a long time ago I made a prediction:(second comment down)/

...we shored up o line and don’t have a QB made of glass… cant see how we don’t win 9 or 10 games.

This was on May 28th, 2013 that I made this prediction. Basically returning the same D (Todd Bowles was a huge question mark though) and an improved O line and QB that could actually get hit I figured we could become a playoff caliber team.

The Cardinals need to win 2 out of 3 to become a 10-win team and even that might not be enough to win a playoff spot which is very sad. They will have to win out more likely than not to get to the playoffs and with two of 3 vs. NFC west that is going to be tough.

I am very proud of our team this year no matter what happens for the rest of the year. I think they will at least win one of the last 3 games this year to have a winning year. I write this not because of the 44% of you that voted that they would win 9 or 10 games but for the nearly 50% of people out there that thought they would be a below .500 team this year.

Maybe you all should stop being so damn pessimistic every, single, season and try to support your team through thick and thin. I moved here in 1995 (Super Bowl XXX) and spent seven seasons in Sun Devil Stadium burning my tail off every single game to watch some really bad football. I saw 1998's amazingess and saw a 19-second drive for the ages to get to the playoffs. (Oh yea then we kicked the living.....ahem... out of Dallas)

I have been to exactly two games in UofP stadium as I now have kids, one was the first ever playoff game in Uof P stadium along with my pregnant wife, with my son along for the ride, and he heard the absolute madness that was that game. The other was a Rams game the next year in which my wife (now not with child) was able to enjoy the game properly... by getting drunk...

I would go to every game if i could (still waiting on press credentials, not holding my breath) but I what I hate more than well Cowboy fans... are Cardinals fans, specifically the ones that are nothing but negative, and nothing but same old Cardinals and never give them their due credit when it is truly deserved but trashes them at the drop of a hat. There are two many of you out there and you need to learn to stick through a team, no matter what, 1-15 or 15-1.

That being said the fact that this team has performed the way it has with new GM, new Coach, 80% new players, In a division that is this difficult, this gentlemen is a good team, with huge potential in the coming years as long as Keim and BA can find the right QB, for what he wants to do.

Get behind this team, the coming up 3 games can put this team in the playoffs, believe they can, BA has the team believing, they have me believing, now its time for you, the pessimist to hop on board. There is plenty of room.....
