    The Saints being 0-4. Especially losing at home to an inferior team, the Chiefs. I'd chalk up the poor start to no Sean Payton. The team has the players, but I don't think they are being properly coached and motivated. As for the Cardinals, I always liked Ken Whisenhunt. If he gets some kind of decent play from his quarterback, his team is going to be tough. So this good start doesn't surprise me.

    I didn't think a coach would make that much of a difference if you already have a system in place, so it is kind of odd the Saints playing so poorly, As for the Cardinals, they have weak QB play and no running game. Beanie Wells has been on IR and Williams is doing absolutely nothing. So it is impressive that they are undefeated.

      The balls have been bouncing the Cardinals way too. 6 fumbles in last week's game against the Dolphins, and they recovered them all. 4 of their own and 2 by the Dolphins.

    With the bounty scandal and the loss of Payton, and the fact that their defense really isn't very good, it doesn't surprise me too much that the Saints are 0-4. Not really too familiar with the Cardinals, but these days it seems like the separation between the best and worst teams in the NFL is pretty small. Smart offense and solid defense gives any team a chance every week. And their defense is playing great (16 sacks in the first four games?)

    I'd say the Cardinals are the bigger surprise. I'm pretty sure nobody except for Cardinals fans and players saw them going into New England and getting a win there. This is the same team that had no clue who was going to be their starting quarterback, and once they did he got injured right away.

    While I'm surprised that the Saints haven't won a game yet, I knew they would struggle not having their head coach and coordinator to start out the season. I think people downplay just how important their presence is, and how much pressure it has put on the team in the meantime,

    While both are surprising, I have to go with the Cards on this one.

    The Saints were going to not be so good this year, even with all of the offensive talent that they have, but Arizona came out of nowhere with their 4-0 start. Their secondary is among the very best, and only improved by a solid pass rush.
