According to their remarks and postings on social media,
the Cardinals are constantly guarding against the notion that a 4-0 start means more than just that it was a nice month.
After Sunday’s 37-20 win against the Rams, quarterback Kyler Murray stated, “As far as being 4-0, I’m aiming to go 1-0 each and every week.”
“Every week, it’s a 1-0 mentality,” said safety Budda Baker.
Brentson Buckner, a defensive line coach/staff actuary,
tweeted, “4-0 means we can’t go 3-14.” “Not a single thing more, not a single thing less.”
It’s a slogan created after the Cardinals began 6-3 last season,
but lost five of their last seven games to miss the playoffs for the sixth straight season.
They concluded that one cause of the failure was too much long-term planning and not enough attention on the work that week.
“After last year, we made a conscious effort to remain in the present,” said coach Kliff Kingsbury,
“to concentrate on one week at a time and strive to progress each week.”
So far, I believe our men have done a good job.”
The pursuit of humility and awareness is admirable,
and it will help the Cardinals improve on their 4-0 start.
Talent, on the other hand, will be more beneficial.
