Nnamdi Asomugha: Our Goal Is To Be 12-4 - Four For Four - SB Nation Philly
"The only people who knew that this thing wasn’t going to be a perfect, well-oiled machine overnight are the people that are here. The criticism is going to come from the people who think that all you have to do is snap a finger and this thing is a perfect winning deal, and that’s not the way it is. . . . We’re 1-4. By the end of the season, our goal is to be 12-4."
Chaney: 'We're going to be in the playoffs'

The execution against the lowly Vikings was totally embarrassing. Kolb was 21 of 42, throwing two interceptions and not a single touchdown. That’s unacceptable, based upon the match-up. That’s unacceptable when you employ Larry Fitzgerald. You can’t have an absurdly low completion percent of 50 percent against the Vikes.
