The Cardinals had a chance to move ahead of the Patriots in the final minute of Sunday night’s game, but kicker Chandler Catanzaro missed a field goal from 47 yards and New England held on for a 23-21 victory.
That’s not the way the Cardinals wanted to start their season and General Manager Steve Keim said on Monday that he’s “angry, disappointed, embarrassed” by the way things went for his team. Keim said “when you are playing a backup quarterback missing some playmakers” at home, you expect to wind up with a victory and that the team has to take the negative feelings from the loss and channel them to make sure they don’t find themselves in the same position down the road.
“It’s ‘The-sky-is-falling’ Monday and we have to use that as a chip on our shoulder to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” Keim said on Arizona Sports 98.7.
Keim found fault in all three phases of the game, which gives them plenty to work on before the Buccaneers come calling next Sunday.
