Cardinals Report Card: Week 14

The Cardinals failed to capitalize on a golden opportunity to make themselves relevant once again. Instead, they threw the game away...literally. Turnovers, missed tackles and bonehead penalties are enough to drive any GPA through the floor.

PASSING OFFENSE: D -- QB Kurt Warner was intercepted five times, a career high. Two of the interceptions came at critical times: the first on the game's opening possession and the second in the third quarter, when the Cards had a chance to close to within one score.

RUSHING OFFENSE: C -- Edgerrin James had room to run early, but the team had to abandon the pass when it fell behind, 24-0.

PASS DEFENSE: D -- Seattle QB Matt Hasselbeck was razor sharp, throwing for four touchdowns. The Cardinals had trouble getting pressure on him.

RUSH DEFENSE: C -- The Seahawks didn't try to run much because they had so much success through the air.

SPECIAL TEAMS: B -- Neil Rackers had another excellent onside kick, and KR Steve Breaston is a dynamic player. P Mitch Berger let a snap go through his hands.

COACHING: D -- Coach Ken Whisenhunt talked all offseason about the need to play with discipline and intelligence, yet his team hasn't displayed those qualities very often this year.
