08:04 AM ET 10.19 | Six weeks into a new era that hasn't gone so well, Larry Fitzgerald was defending his head coach and reminding people about how important Anquan Boldin was during the more successful era. Fitzgerald is smiling. He says he has not lost hope. He says there are no "bad fish" on the team and he likes the current resolve he feels in the locker room. But their record is 1-4, the new quarterback is trying too hard and an emotional team meeting reveals a season already on the brink. It smells like bad coaching. From a defensive coordinator forced to scale back his scheming to an offense that coughs and sputters, the 2011 Cardinals seem less prepared than other NFL teams that faced similar adversity.

It's the Cardinals.


Did anyone take that SB visit seriously?

You mean, I read that whole paragraph and all it said was "They suck?" I could have told you that.

And then to have it delivered at work...

Boldin was important when the Cards were successful. Kurt Warner might've had a little something to do with it, too.

Two words.. Kevin Kolb.

I wish I had a complimentary blow up doll. Mine is downright insulting.

I worked at the Post Office for a couple of summers. Believe me, they know. Have it delivered to your neighbor's house and then go over and pick it up before he gets home.

Yup, I can't afford the inflatable Ken doll like you have. Did you pay extra to get the blow-up nozzle moved to the groin area, or just use customer loyalty points?

Nobody WORKS at the Post Office. Just kidding, though ... don't go postal on me.

Morning all,

I would say it's more the QB than the Coaching staff

When people trust their fragile shipments to a company named Oops rather than the Post Office, you know it's only a matter of time.

Stamps go up another penny in January. Same great surly service, though.
