The Arizona Cardinals fought arduously to turn what was shaping up to be a complete disaster of a 2011 season into something less awful to reflect upon.

This list is dedicated to the players who were expected to perform, no matter their situation, and failed to do so. The players listed in the next five slides need to step up their game in 2012. If they perform to the level at which they are capable, they will give their team a better shot at winning games and winning the NFC West.
