    Patriots debacle woke up Cardinals

    Motivation to get better after you are humbled by 40 points apparently was the turning point for the boys from the desert

    Maybe if Arizona wins the Super Bowl Belichick will get a thank you letter from Whisenhunt for beating his team to a pulp in December :D

    So if Arizona wins the Super Bowl, that will be two teams in two years that can thank us for giving them motivation for a Super Bowl win. The '07 Giants and the '08 Cardinals. It's just too bad that one came at our expense. :(

    I guess I'm an optimist, but, if you keep being the team people point to that made you feel good because they almost beat you, or that pounded you and woke you up, you'll probably soon get back to the promised land yourself.

    Our tough loss against the Rams in 2001 marked the turning point of the DYNASTY

    I myself is definitely a Cards fan this weekend-NO WAY I ever root for Philly.

    Again-hardly anyone's giving them a chance against the Eagles.(including myself) However-it was the same story prior to the Falcons game, and then everyone thought Carolina would win by upteen points. I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled off another one tomorrow.

    I remember that game-the Pats had control of it until Antwoine Smith fumbled at the goalline toward the end of the 1st half-otherwise, it would have been 14-3, and no way the Rams are able to utilize their passing game the rest of the way in that freezing weather.

    Good memory. Rams marched right down the field and scored after that. Which now that I think of it is much like what happened in SD this year.

    Of course, Bertrand Berry had to go and poke the bear:

    I hope he realizes he just asked for an even worse b****slapping the next time they face the Patriots. And Lord knows, Bill Belichick can carry a grudge with the best of them. Just ask Brad Childress. :D

    I still can't believe that Arizona is in the championship game...

    They play in the worst division, ever and I don't think any of the teams in their division has ever won a game against the Pats in recent memory.

    As far as the recent game ... pl...zz.. it was a massacre from the get go and they just rolled over and died. If the NFL allowed them to throw in the towel at half-time, I believe they would have done so.

    Did they get even one first down the entire first half ? Maybe one .. I don't recall ... It seemed as if the Pats O was on the field for the entire half and by then, the game was practically over.

    This year has been a bummer... That stupid Favre... couldn't win one game !
    The Dolphins got lucky and we got unlucky...

    Well, I guess there's always next year

    Have they played in decent weather since? I still remember their faces from that game, they were too busy thinking about home time and cuddling up like penguins. They didn't want to be in Foxborough one, single, bit.

    Yeah, CHB actually has a decent column about the AZ-Pats game.....hard to believe that team could be in the Super Bowl as of today.

    Let's face it, that game shows what can happen in the NFL if you're not totally motivated.

    I do think the patriots are a better team, but they're not that much better.

    This is why we can look like crap one weekend but not the next.

    AZ played a heartless game when we beat them 47-7 so that did not display their potential. If they win today and in two weeks it will be a good thing. The Ravens & the Steelers remind me of the crips and the bloods so go Cardinals!

    This could (too early to tell, obviously) be the second year in a row that an out-of-conference loss to the Patriots has been the catalyst for the Super Bowl Champions.

    i think it was more about being embarrassed at home by a tavaris jackson led vikings team

    a team getting their doors blown off at NE isn't any real surprise, especially since the jets scored a crapload on zona in ny as well

    but when the vikings and their inconsistent qb throws 4 tds on you....you know you've got serious issues that need to be fixed

    Dude, the Patriots game is the game the Cardinals themselves have pointed to.

    it's nice that they point to that

    but use common sense

    what's more embarrassing?

    losing to NE in foxboro 47-7

    or losing at home to tavaris jackson 35-14 (and 7 points for , came on a blocked punt, so really 35-7....in your own house)

    it's just common sense

    not being a troll lol

    just using common sense as always

    the cards pointing to that NE game, kinda diminishes NE's credibility

    since when is getting blown out in NE something to be embarrassed by? NE's always been a great home team

    in other words, cards pointing to that, is taking a shot at NE

    getting blown out at home is always more embarrassing...just common sense, to anyone who isn't retarded

    Look, when the team says it's the Patriots game that did it, and you insist otherwise, you are not using common sense.

    I for one am amazed and disgusted by the Cards' run after the Patriots game.

    To my mind, the Cards came into Foxboro and left their will, their motivation, their talent and everything else at home, except their warm bodies. I cannot imagine a BB team playing like that. It was absolutely disgraceful. It's not that the Patriots were so much better, it's that the Cards didn't give a damn. It will be a long time, if ever, that I have respect for that team again.

    And if the Cards should win the Superbowl, that will just prove to me that the playoff system is nuts and that if the Patriots were in the mix, Matt Cassel could have been the Superbowl VP.
