The Arizona Cardinals completely, totally, and definitely suck.
After losing eight games in a row, the Cardinals just keep getting worse. The team lost by 58 points -- 58 to nothing -- to the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in Seattle yesterday.

With those guys who throw around fish at the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle apparently unavailable at quarterback for the Cardinals, Arizona still used John Skelton and Ryan Lindley, who still sucked.
Here's how the Cardinals' drives went, from start to finish:
- Skelton interception
- Skelton fumble
- Skelton interception for touchdown
- Skelton fumble, recovered by Cardinals, shortly before a punt
- Skelton interception
- Ryan Lindley's in! And he fumbled
- Turnover on downs
- The Cardinals suck
Somewhere between all that sucking mentioned above, Patrick Peterson also muffed a punt, which, of course, the Seahawks returned for a touchdown. Peterson also fumbled on a different punt return.
The Seahawks -- a team that definitely is not the greatest team in NFL history -- did not suck.
The Seahawks had two hundred-yard rushers, including Skittles addict Marshawn Lynch, who had three rushing touchdowns.
The Cardinals' William Powell and Beanie Wells, on the other hand, sucked -- 20 yards rushing, and 18 yards rushing, respectively.
Here's a list of more things about the game yesterday that totally sucked:
