It was “All or Nothing” last year for the Cardinals, and while they ended up close to “all,” they and 30 other teams ultimately ended up with “nothing.”
With the 2016 season beginning on Sunday night for the Cardinals, it’s time to forget about 2015 and move forward.
“There’s only ever one goal,” coach Bruce Arians told NBC’s Bob Costas during Football Night in America. “That was a tremendous season. I think we grew as a football team and an organization. But unless you’re getting the ring and the confetti is falling on you, it’s a bad year.”
They came one game short of the confetti game, due to a disastrous performance against the Panthers. The loss included six turnovers from quarterback Carson Palmer.
“I never expected us to play so poorly, or coach so poorly,” Arians said. It wasn’t just Carson, it was 53 players and 25 coaches who stunk that night — myself included.”
The Cardinals definitely stunk that night. They’ll try not to stink this night, at home against the Patriots.
