ARIZONA CARDINALS (21)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 22) - September was nice, huh?

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 26) - Their 4-0 start seems like ages ago. Poor Larry Fitzgerald.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 18)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 22) - Offensive line and QB issues are ruining their season.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 21) - They go into the bye week on a five-game losing streak, and coach Ken Whisenhunt says he's open to changes. What the team really needs is starting QB Kevin Kolb back from a rib injury.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 18) - How much of a beating can these quarterbacks take? Kevin Kolb and John Skelton have been sacked 41 times this season and both have missed time because of injuries.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 23) - I'm not sure which offensive line is worse: Arizona's or Philadelphia's. What I am sure is that their quarterbacks can apply for early disability.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 24) - A week off to fix this dreadful offense.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 24) - The Cardinals only gave up two sacks last week, which for them is an achievement. They are on a bye this week and that's a good thing for the Arizona quarterbacks. A five-game losing streak after a four-game winning streak to start the season is a hard pill to swallow.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 22) - The defense showed their mettle and made it tough on Aaron Rogers and the Pack, but they don't have enough in the tank right now to beat teams like the Packers.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 24) - Quarterback John Skelton actually remained upright long enough to post a 300-yard passing game, but the defense let the Cardinals down by allowing four Aaron Rodgers touchdown throws in last Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 19) - The off week could be a good time for a shakeup in the desert, but what can Ken Whisenhunt do?
