NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the Arizona Cardinals by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
ARIZONA CARDINALS (21)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 21) - Lots of people become rejuvenated after a rest week in Arizona.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 27) - Riding a five-game losing streak, and facing an angry Falcons team next.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 19)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 22) - After starting 4-0 they've now lost five in a row ... make that six in a row after Sunday at Atlanta. Hard to win without a QB!
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 23) - Why you can never look at a 4-0 start the same way: Cardinals were that good a month into the season. They haven't won since. Now it's off to face an angry Falcons team coming off their first loss. Ouch.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 20) - The Cardinals have scored the fewest points in the NFC this season. But a top 10 defense has kept them on the periphery of playoff contention at 4-5.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 23) - The more I see of this offensive line the more I know Kurt Warner's in a better place.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 20) - Breaking bad: they get the privilege of facing the Falcons on the rebound.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 24) - The bye came just in time to save their quarterbacks from an offensive line that can't protect anyone. The defense is playoff caliber, but the offense drove this team to the bottom of the power rankings.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 22) - The Cardinals had a bye and better have figured some things out.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 22) - The return from the bye may not be pleasant. The Cardinals must travel to Atlanta and face an angry Falcons squad coming off its first loss of the season.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 22) - Will the return of Beanie Wells stop the Cardinals' skid?
