The Arizona Cardinals concluded their regular season last night in San Francisco. They lost 20-17 to the 49ers. The loss has the Cardinals finishing the season at 11-5. A one game improvement from last year and the fact that the Cardinals had to use four quarterbacks would normal be a successful season but this is a little different. They started the season 9-1 and last week were one win away from locking down the number 1 seed in the NFC. So you can see how a lot of Cardinal faithful would be disappointed. Also to add to the frustration is the fact that they finished 2-4.
The fact is the Cardinals are in the playoffs and now it's time to forget about the regular season and hope the Cardinals can get back to their winning ways of earlier this season. They travel to play the Carolina Panther's on Saturday. Ryan Lindley's play was better yesterday but the reality is that the defense and the coaching is going to carry this team and decide how far it will go in the playoffs.
