Even in a huge loss like that, there are things to learn.
It's definitely not easy to swallow that big pill though.
In a game where the Cardinals were supposed to find out who they really were, they flopped.
But take heart Cardinals fans. This reminds me of the New England game a couple years ago, when the Cardinals were absolutely dominated in Foxboro.
That was the year they went on to the Super Bowl.
Now, I'm not saying that they'll do that again, but in a very weak division (the Cardinals will be tied for first no matter what happens tonight), anything is possible.
If San Fran loses tonight, the Cardinals are still in the driver's seat.
I'm afraid that about wraps up the positive though.
Hang on. It's going to be a bumpy ride...
