When we talk Cardinals, the conversation is typically about the offense: Carson Palmer, the injuries to David Johnson, John Brown, and the offensive line.
What's been unfairly forgotten is the Cardinals' underperforming defense.
That's right: Underperforming! After two games, the defense is ranked 20th in yards allowed, 25th in points allowed per game and 21st in passing yards allowed per game. Considering that Sunday's game was against the hapless Colts, that's not acceptable.
Consider this: The Cards have a lot of money invested in guys like Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, Chandler Jones, Antoine Bethea and Justin Bethel. I think it's fair to expect more.
Frankly, this year's defense hasn't lived up to expectations. I think it's time they step up!
