PASSING OFFENSE: C -- QB Kurt Warner has been sacked seven times in three games, and he's been unable to get the ball deep to Larry Fitzgerald. If Warner doesn't get better protection, he won't last the season.
RUSHING OFFENSE: D -- The running game was supposed to be improved but it's nearly non-existent. Tim Hightower and Beanie Wells have fumbled three times in the past two games.
PASS DEFENSE: C -- It was decent in the first two games, but porous against the Colts. There was no pressure on Peyton Manning and teams are picking on cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
RUSH DEFENSE: A -- None of the three opponents has been able to run on the Cardinals. The team speed on defense is excellent, so it's hard to get outside. The Cardinals have been susceptible to reverses, however.
SPECIAL TEAMS: B -- The coverage teams have been excellent but the return teams haven't proven much. Punter Ben Graham has been reliable, as has kicker Neil Rackers. The Cardinals need to get a big play out of the return game.
COACHING: C-minus -- The Cardinals have played just one competent game, the victory over the Jaguars. The other two games have been filled with penalties, or turnovers and or defensive breakdowns, or all three. Every week, coach Ken Whisenhunt talks about "cleaning up" mistakes. Well, the cleaning isn't yet apparent.
OVERALL: C-minus -- The Cardinals should be 2-1 at the break. There was no excuse for playing poorly in the season opener at home and losing to the 49ers. More was expected after last season's success, but the Cardinals still play like an immature, dumb team at time. Even Ken Whisenhunt has said his team has looked "bush league" at some points this season.
