??AP Pro32 comments about Cardinals??
NEW YORK -- Comments on the Arizona Cardinals by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
ARIZONA CARDINALS (10)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 12) -- Can't blame them for not going 16-0.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 14) -- If offensive line issues continue, they will struggle regardless of who plays quarterback.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 7)
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 8) -- Back to earth for the Cardinals following that electrifying OT win against Miami.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 7) -- QB Kevin Kolb has been sacked 17 times in the last two weeks -- eight by Miami and nine by St. Louis.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 9) -- Kevin Kolb isn't the issue here. That leaky offensive line is. If the Cards don't get better at the tackles they don't get better, period.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 11) -- The NFC's worst ground game is running out of able bodies.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 12) -- They were ranked fourth last week. But in two weeks, after allowing 17 sacks and 30 hits on the QB, there are issues with the Cardinals. Their defense is impressive and will keep them in games until the line improves.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 12) -- Kolb won't survive much longer unless his offensive line starts protecting him better and he starts getting rid of it earlier. 17 sacks in the last 2 weeks. Do you think he is sore?
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 14) -- Not only have the Cardinals fallen from the ranks of the unbeaten, more losses may be on the way because of offensive woes that include the season-ending loss of running back Ryan Williams (shoulder).
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 7) -- There is much to question about the Cardinals, but we still have to respect their 4-1 record.
