Don’t Let The Cardinals Record Fool You. posted on 11/05/2014

The Arizona Cardinals are sitting pretty at 7 – 1 and in first place of the NFC West with the best record in the league. They are the team to beat and a sure thing for the playoffs, right?

Not necessarily. While on paper they look like the most complete team out there, don’t let their record fool you. They are far from a Super Bowl caliber team and have several key flaws that must be addressed if they plan to navigate their way through the second half of the season and subsequently, the playoffs.

Ellington figures to be the target for 34-year old quarterback Carson Palmer, whom the team traded for in the 2013 offseason. Palmer did help the Cardinals offense particularly after Week 8, with the team increasing its points average to 27.3 from the previous 19 points per game.
