08:01 AM ET 11.19 | The number six figured prominently Sunday for the Cardinals, who enjoyed six turnovers against the Falcons before going on to lose their sixth consecutive game. Losing locker rooms are a minefield of emotions. Tiptoe carefully. The Cardinals feel like a team about to explode. ... Obviously, you can't blame the defense. Nor can you blame the defense for blaming the offense. It takes a special group and a special coaching staff to keep an imbalanced team in harmony through repeated bouts of rough sledding. No matter what the players say about staying united, it won't happen forever. "It's terrible," said running back LaRod Stephens-Howling, one offensive player who can hold his head high. "We are not helping our defense out at all."

Kolb is injured, Skelton gets pulled and Lindley gets the team nowhere.

WHO'S HOLDING THE CLIPBOARD?!?!?

Pretty much.

From 4-0 to 4-12

Origin of the Species. The story was written in the 1830s. It was all foretold.

Nice

It was the fluke 4-0 start that got everyone's expectations up too high. Their offensive line play (or lack thereof) finally caught up to them. Would have been better to start 2-2 or 1-3, then nobody would be complaining.

The Galapagos Cardinals?

Get some decent O-Lineman and maybe this team can do something on offense

Maybe they need a QB who uses his parietal eye, like Fernando.

It would help the running game, and also expose their QB situation once and for all so maybe they'd go out and find a good one.

This is an easy one. Kolb is always hurt and when he does play its so so. Skelton is a terrible passer and may be the slowest person in the game. I've had turtles with quicker feet. The other guy I never heard of. Losing teams often lose due to no leadership on the field or poor coaching.

Not sure if Arizona is one of those states that does not believe in evolution. In which case they are waiting for a sign from above.

Arizona has a Super Majority in its State Legislature.

So it appears. That Governor is a reality show in herself.

It could be argued that Kurt Warner getting that dysfunctional franchise to a superbowl was the greatest athletic feat in modern history. Makes you wonder if he had to sell his soul to you know who to do it.
