Today's loss to the Chiefs showcased a disastrous effort from an uninspired Arizona Cardinals team. Dwayne Bowe and Matt Cassel worked together to move the ball down the field for Kansas City, allowing them to improve to 6-4 on the season. Arizona drops to 3-7.
Steve Breaston played well, making five catches for 92 yards. Andre Roberts came on strong in the fourth quarter, finishing with six catches and 52 yards. Derek Anderson played an inefficient game, completing only 25 of 46 passes for 295 mostly meaningless yards.
What is truly bothersome is the lack of rushing attempts for Tim Hightower and Beanie Wells. Combined, the two running backs put together a solid effort, rushing 20 times for 101 yards. With such a poor passing game, why isn't this avenue being explored in more depth? It just doesn't make sense.
With the loss, Arizona is now solely in last place in the putrid NFC West, and Coach Whisenhunt has a lot of questions he needs to answer. Namely, whether or not he is considering putting a quality team on the field any time soon.
