Football-In-Mouth Disease

Did you hear what those geezers on the Arizona Cardinals preseason broadcast were saying during the Kansas City Chiefs game on August 16? That the redbirds’ win was a monumental turning point, especially considering that it was coach Ken Whisenhunt’s first exhibition victory in six tries. Give. Us. A. Freaking. Break.

It’s the exhibition season, and showing dominance against a bunch of fourth-string rookies won’t erase a century of uselessness. We understand that it was the fourth quarter and not many people were watching, but c’mon, an on-air comment is a comment, no matter when it occurs, and we ain’t falling for it. We hope we don’t hear such rubbish when the Cardinals host the Denver Broncos in Arizona's final preseason game of ’08.
