I have to admit, it's been tough to be a Cardinals fan the last two weeks.
Can I get on my soapbox for a moment? Ok, thanks.
Honestly, and most critics will disagree, the Cardinals should be 3-0 right now.
They have the tools. Kevin Kolb is a good quarterback (despite criticisms, even now, but is he better than any quarterback Arizona had last year? Um, let me think. YES!), we may finally have a running game, and the defense, with last week's performance, may finally come around.
But they have no one to blame but themselves at this point.
And many think the overrated Cardinals, playing like this, will go into the bye week at 1-4.
I couldn't disagree more.
I see a chance for this team to be good. Really good.
But as frustrated as I and all the other Cardinals fans are right now, let's consider this; there was no offseason, and Arizona has a new QB, new TEs, new CBs, a new starter at RB, two new OL starters, and a new defensive coordinator with a complicated scheme to boot.
We honestly shouldn't have had the chance to go 3-0.
But we did.
And we will beat the Giants this week.
Well, it's a gut feeling.
But here's five things they have to do right.
