There is losing and there is LOSING
Question of the Day
The three-team race of disgrace has obscured how poorly the Cardinals, Vikings, Seahawks and Broncos have performed. Their level of losing isn’t quite so epic _ Seattle did beat the Giants in the Meadowlands; Minnesota had a shot at undefeated Green Bay in the dying minutes last Sunday in rookie QB Christian Ponder’s first start _ but it shouldn’t be ignored.
Most disappointing for Arizona has been the lack of production on offense after the big trade last summer to get QB Kevin Kolb. Certainly the adjustment period has been longer than expected, but with coach Ken Whisenhunt’s track record, he surely deserves more time to fix things.
“I don’t think anybody can take too much heat when your record is where it is,” Whisenhunt said. “Our expectations are not to be where we are as a team. We are disappointed. It hurts. We hurt all the time, because we want to be good.”
Like the Cardinals, the Vikings, Seahawks and Broncos have made quarterbacking changes this season. All of their defenses have flopped, ranking anywhere from 19th to 29th in yards allowed in the air. None has had a particularly effective offensive line.
What they all have, though, are victories. And even one win might be too many to get “Lucky” in April.
