It’s the Bears vs Cardinals in Week 3. We preview this matchup with Raising Zona.
The Chicago Bears come off their Monday Night Football victory over the Seattle Seahawks to face another NFC West opponent, the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals have had a rough start to the 2018 season, starting 0-2 and having scored just six points in two games. And Mike Glennon has been safely on the Cards bench that whole time!

These are not the same Cardinals as we’ve seen in recent years. There’s been quite a bit of turnover for new head coach Steve Wilks as he tries to regroup this team and get them their first win of the season. There are still some familiar faces, namely Larry Fitzgerald and Patrick Peterson, but there are some new pieces that have to fit together. Don’t overlook these 0-2 Cardinals, however. They will not just lay down for Mitch Trubisky and the Bears.
To help us sort out the details and get us ready for this showdown between the Bears and Cardinals, we touched base with longtime friend Scott Allen of FanSided’s own Raising Zona for a little Q&A.
1. It would be an understatement to say the Cardinals offense has struggled out of the gate. Is it Sam Bradford, Mike McCoy or both? When does Josh Rosen get his shot?
This is a great question. The easy answer is yes. All of the above would seem most appropriate. But if we are going to point fingers at one, it starts at the top, Mike McCoy. Head coach Steve Wilks said this week he would “scale back” the playbook. ok, right, that’s the problem. The offense has been anything but complex. But he’s the coach. We’ll see if things finally start clicking.
Wilks has not been tempted to use Rosen yet. I would expect all Bradford until he gets injured or week four or five, whichever comes first. Unless Bradford starts to turn things around, then it could be a while before we see Rosen.
