As hard as the Cardinals had been playing for the first three quarters of their first two games, the new coaching staff and the team needed to prove it could maintain their strong starts and then finish strongly in the 4th quarter in order to snag the W.

It’s hard to imagine why after two weeks Mike Florio and NBC’s Pro Football Talk still had the Cardinals ranked #32 in the NFL.

That’s why five days ago I tweeted this over to PFT:

Hey Mike Florio, how do you explain the fact that your #32 Cardinals just beat your #1 Cowboys 28-16?


Don’t you dare cry injuries.

The Cardinals were missing: S Budda Baker, DE L.J. Collier, DT Carlos Watkins

Post-game reaction:

Well then, let’s see here at ROTB who is all aboard int rooting for the team to win THIS YEAR?


Do you want the Cardinals to win every game possible this season, or not?
