SB Nation’s FanPulse is back for 2019 and it is bigger and better than ever. If you have missed out on signing up, don’t worry, there is still plenty of time for you to be part of the Revenge of the Birds FanPulse and weigh-in on all the Arizona Cardinals topics.

The Arizona Cardinals lost on Thursday Night Football to the best team in the NFL (record wise), and it boosted the confidence of the fans in the direction of the Arizona Cardinals.

In fact, after the confidence in the team dropped to 63%, it has again risen up to 80% again, matching the high point of this season, after they won three games in a row just a couple of weeks ago.

That is what a competent showing on National TV will do.

Now, if they can find a way to get a big road win against their former head coach, confidence will continue to rise.

The SB Nation voters do not feel the same confidence in the Buffalo Bills, as they were overwhelmingly voted as the biggest pretender this NFL season.

On the other hand, the New York Jets are the team that fans feel the worst for. It is interesting because what the Jets are, with the same young quarterback, Adam Gase at head coach and Quinnen Williams, was the offseason blue print so many Cardinals fans and media believed the team should follow.

Could you imagine having to deal with that after Steve Wilks the year before?
