with a home loss to Oakland.Embattled first-year coach Steve Wilks is mulling some changes Anthony Chickillo Jersey , although he didn't say what they were, and there's only so much the Cardinals can do considering their injuries and the overall state of their roster."Right now, being 2-8, you're open to a lot of things from a standpoint of personnel changes, things that you think will give us an opportunity to be successful and win a football game," Wilks said at his Monday news conference.Sunday's 23-21 loss left three teams tied for the worst record in the NFL: the Cardinals, Oakland and San Francisco. And the remaining schedule is formidable for the Cardinals.They play at the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, followed by a trip to Green Bay the following week. There are also games at Atlanta and the season finale at Seattle. Arizona has only two remaining home games 鈥?Dec. 9 against Detroit and Dec. 23 against the Los Angeles Rams.The Cardinals' chances for many more, if any, victories seem slim, especially if play doesn't improve."It's not playing smart, just beating ourselves," veteran safety Antoine Bethea said after the game. "That's the most frustrating thing about it. Week in and week out, it's just like the same thing."A positive aspect of the mistake-laded Arizona effort was the continued resurgence of David Johnson.The dynamic back rushed for a season-best 137 yards, 53 of them on a run that set up Josh Rosen's 5-yard TD pass to Larry Fitzgerald that put Arizona up 21-20 with 5:02 to play. Johnson had a 57-yard touchdown run called back by a holding call against tight end Ricky Seals-Jones.It was one of several Arizona mistakes in the game's final minutes. Jermaine Gresham was called for unnecessary roughness and Josh Bynes dropped an interception.The Cardinals allowed Oakland, with no timeouts, to drive 63 yards in the final 1:53, setting up Daniel Carlson's decisive 35-yard field goal as the game ended.Rosen threw for three touchdowns 鈥?two to Fitzgerald 鈥?but was intercepted twice, both picks leading to first-half touchdowns. Rosen had only nine completions in 20 attempts for 136 yards."I think a lot of it is just the mental errors across the board on offense and defense," Rosen said of the team's performance. "I know I had a bunch. Just little mental errors that aren't a part of the game plan. Dumb little things we just have to clean up overall."Why is a team making those mistakes 10 games into a season? Nobody seemed to have a good answer."That's why it's an issue that was brought up because it's very late in the season," Rosen said. "That's a good point."It's been a rough introduction for Wilks to life as an NFL head coach."No. 1, you have to learn how to persevere," he said. "It's tough. You have to learn how to hit the reset button and not linger on things because, once again Mike Hilton Jersey , one loss can turn into two. I try to pull out the positives and try to learn from the negative stuff and try to get those guys to see the big picture."Wilks said he knew it would be a tough job when he was hired."Did I expect to be where we are? No, but again you have to learn how to persevere" he said. "You have to learn how to continue to push and be that example. I am not going to quit. That's what I just told the guys, and neither are they. We're going to find a way to get on track and win a football game."Arizona was last 2-8 in 2006. That team finished 5-11 and coach Dennis Green was fired.Notes: The Cardinals released kicker Matt McCrane, who had been signed Saturday and was active for the Raiders game in place of Phil Dawson, who had been bothered by a hip injury. Dawson is fine and will be back this week, Wilks said. ... Wilks said LB Deone Bucannon sustained a chest contusion in the game and it's not known how much time he might miss. Cincinnati Bengals’ linebacker Vontaze Burfict has quite the sordid past when it comes to infractions during his NFL career. He has been suspended several times for plays both during, and after, the play. The most recent infractions came in the Week 6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers when the league fined Burfict over $100 thousand dollars for elbowing Antonio Brown in the head while defenseless, and going head-to-head on running back James Conner. Steelers fans, and many others, are growing tired of Burfict’s antics and wanted the league to come down hard on the talented, yet troubled, linebacker. Former Cleveland Browns tackle Joe Thomas even suggested a year-long ban for his behavior. The league decided on a hefty fine instead, although fines have done little to alter Burfict’s play on the field, but they did send a warning with the latest letter notifying Burfict of the loss of money in his weekly check.This per the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:So, to recap, the NFL has told Burfict his repeated behavior won’t be tolerated any longer. Thanks to this latest punishment, Burfict has brought the total amount of money he has lost to fine or suspension to a staggering $4,158,408. His complete list of fines and suspensions so far based on data from Spotrac.com. Losing over $4 million dollars hasn’t deterred Burfict’s behavior, but the league feels this latest fine, and warning, will certainly do the trick.Albert Einstein once said doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. I couldn’t agree more.
