08:03 AM ET 10.24 | Wait-until-next-year time has come early in the desert. After a 32-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, we can bemoan the yellow flags (nine penalties, many at the worst time). We can acknowledge the red flags (a number of personnel decisions that seem to reflect poor judgment). Or you can choose the white flag introduced by Kevin Kolb, who was asked what fans should focus on after a fifth consecutive loss. The new quarterback paused. He forced a smile. He said: "They just have to take it like we take it. We're moving in a direction that we believe that in the future we're going to be something special. That future could be one week. That future could be one year (from now)."

That is the polite way to say "We Suck". Thanks Kevin but we new that before the season started.

That future could be one week. That future could be one year (from now)...

I'll take the over... over the year.

The whole team is on the hotseat. But it's a dry heat.

Very poor judgment bringing in Kolb. The future is doomed.

Stevie Wonder could have seen this. Just wait until this tin man gets injured.

I bet their GM is slapping himself on the forehead, saying "We could have had Carson Palmer."

You mean, it could get worse?

The Cards only had a Superbowl run because they tripped over Kurt Warner. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while.

Is Fitzgerald still throwing teammates under the bus?

He's the only guy on the team who can find the bus.

Kevin Kolb is what we thought he was yo....

Can't even get Fitz the ball.

When Cardinals wave a white flag, doesn't that mean they've chosen a new Pope?

Doom and Gloom worse.

Ha ha ha ha ha!

I hate the Cardinals.

"They just have to take it like we take it." Bend over, Cards fans, here it comes again.

Reid must be laughing. He knew and everybody else should have.

I'm pretty sure there was nobody here that was singing his praises.

First McNabb and then Kolb. Think anybody else will be dumb enough to take a QB off Coach Andy's hands? Dude is a used-QB salesman.
