Lost Cause

The Arizona Cardinals have had a lot of adjectives attached to them this season – most are clever variations on the word “suck” –. And it's true, especially with that pathetic loss against the Carolina Panthers.

While the Redbirds aren’t ever really favorites to win, their Christmas Day opponent, the Dallas Cowboys, might prove easy pickings. The Boys from Big D have been mediocre since star quarterback Tony Romo fractured his clavicle earlier this season, and while Romo has targeted today’s game for his return, the Cardinals’ blitz-happy defense should prove problematic for whomever Dallas suits up under center.
