I hate to say that about any professional football player because that’s their living and they have their families, but they don’t look very good at what they’re trying to do.”During the Cardinals’ nine-game game losing streak — the franchise’s longest since their Chicago days back in 1944 — the offense has scored six points or less on four occasions.After Sunday’s debacle in Seattle, Arizona is ranked last in the league in points per game (14.3), completion percentage (54.8), yards per attempt (5.6) and passer rating (63.5).Ditka wouldn’t commit to calling out just Skelton or Lindley on Monday, after all he made sure to point out the quarterbacks didn’t give up all 58 points to the Seahawks.“The quarterback didn’t play defense,” said Ditka. “He was never on defense for one play, and 58 points is a pretty high number. It’s a reflection on more than just the quarterback. You better look at the whole football team.” As a five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver and Super Bowl-winning head coach, Mike Ditka knows a thing or two about the quarterback position.During his playing career, Ditka played alongside Pro Bowlers Billy Wade (Chicago Bears) and Roger Staubach (Dallas Cowboys), so he admits watching what has transpired with the Arizona Cardinals at the position is not easy to say the least.In the Cardinals’ franchise-worst 58-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Arizona’s quarterbacking duo of John Skelton and Ryan Lindley combined to go 19-of-39 for 133 yards and six turnovers.

Instead of his typical coach-speak, the coach opted for an open apology.When asked what advice he’d offered up to Whisenhunt coach-to-coach, Ditka was at a loss for words. “I don’t know what to say,” said Ditka. “I guess you pick up the pieces and start all over again.” Comments   Share   center_img Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellinglast_img read more
