The Arizona Cardinals ended the season embarrassingly. After a 7-0 and 10-2 start to the season, they finished the regular season 11-6 and lost in the first round of the playoffs 34-11 to the Los Angeles Rams.

In all, they lost five of their final six games.

That has led to the team’s owner, Michael Bidwill, reportedly being “very, very upset” with how things ended.

While nothing has changed with the status of head coach Kliff Kingsbury and general manager Steve Keim, Bidwill has had “lots of internal discussions that I think have been productive and will improve the team,” according to AZCentral Sports’ Kent Somers, who spoke to Bidwill on Monday.

Bidwill recognizes the success the Cardinals did have. After all, it was their first playoff berth in six seasons. But he said it was “very disappointing” for everyone and he believes the team can and should be better.

What makes things worse is seeing the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams both make the NFC Championship Game.

“Anytime you see your direct competitors in the playoffs, it should bother any football fan, and it certainly bothers this one,” Bidwill said, per Somers.

It apparently doesn’t bother Bidwill enough to change the overall leadership of the team, but we will see soon what changes there will be in the offseason.
