So to get a better sense of who we’re facing, I linked up with Seth Cox from Revenge of the Birds, the SB Nation community for Cardinals fans.
The offense really never got on track last week. Was that something to be expected (though perhaps not to that degree) or was it a surprise? What’s the primary issue or two to get fixed ASAP?
This is one of those questions where you want there to be a clear-cut answer and there really does not seem to be. Sam Bradford threw the ball 11 times in the preseason after basically missing all of 2017. Moreover, he is in a new offense, surrounded by new players with a new offensive coordinator. The fact that they stunk in week one is the least surprising thing that happened in that game. The primary issue is that Bradford has no rapport with his new offense and that Cardinals really lack talent outside of the ageless Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson. Put it this way, the Cardinals had one catch for four yards from a wide receiver not named Larry Fitzgerald in game...
