The top discussion topic among Cardinals fans following their team's 36-6 home loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday was: What, if anything, does that loss mean as the team heads into the playoffs?

It's a question debated by ABC15 Sports anchors Craig Fouhy and Jason Snavely on Sunday night, and one discussed by fans around the water cooler at work, as well as coffee shops, restaurants and sports bars across the Valley.

So, we headed to a popular lunch location in Tempe to find out what fans thought about the Cards' defeat.

The message? Relax.

Fans know the Cardinals were locked into the No. 2 seed in the NFL playoffs and didn't play with the same kind of effort they showed when they had won nine straight games. Even coach Bruce Arians admitted Monday that he had planned all week to take quarterback Carson Palmer out of the game at halftime, which he did.

So, if you happen to be one of those Cards fans tempted to hit the panic button over Sunday's loss to the dreaded Seahawks, the above video may bring you some comfort.
