 NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Arizona Cardinals by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
---
ARIZONA CARDINALS (14)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 15) - 4-0 looked too good.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 24) - In September they were hot. In October, they're not.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 11)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 23) - Too much of an imbalance right now with a strong defense and a struggling offense.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 13) - Jay Feely hits a 61-yard field goal to tie it late in the fourth quarter, but his 38-yarder to win it at the buzzer caroms off the left upright to give Buffalo another chance in OT. End result: Cardinals' losing streak now at two.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 11) - Speaking of sacks, Cardinals quarterbacks Kevin Kolb and John Skelton have been sacked a combined 28 times. That ranks as the worst pass protection in the NFL.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 12) - I don't care who plays quarterback. He can't survive with that offensive line.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 19) - That 4-0 start provided the Cardinals with a cushion. They're going to need it.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 14) - Four wins keeps them in the top half of the league but their protection issues aren't going away anytime soon. Both quarterbacks better be ready to play at all times.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 15) - The Cardinals must find a way to keep their QB's upright. Tough duty with their No. 1 and No. 2 RB's out with injuries.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 14) - Are two straight losses a harbinger of an outright collapse?
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 12) - Two straight losses to teams with current .500 records is not an encouraging trend.
