Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has said he’s happy with the way the Cardinals have responded to adversity.
He said on Tuesday that he hopes his team will continue to overcome adversity.
Arians, who has been fired as head coach after the team’s 24-20 loss to the Lions in Week 7, was the first coach to go without a win since Bill Parcells in 1995.
“It’s always good to have some adversity in your life, but it’s good to see how our guys handle it,” Arians said.
“I think that’s always the biggest thing.
You can’t take it out on the players, you can’t make it personal.
You’ve got to come out with a positive attitude.
That’s the only way you can be successful.
We did a good job of that.”
Arians said he has “never been a person who’s been happy about losing.”
He said the Cardinals are “going to have to be a little more consistent with our effort” if they want to win in this week’s game.
“It is going to be the most difficult game we’ve had in a long time,” Arias said.
The Cardinals (5-3) face the Cardinals (6-3).
