I've heard a handful of people talking about how the Arizona Cardinals have a shot at a perfect 0-16 season this year, and looking at their roster I think there's a good chance that could happen. Jeff Blake? Emmitt Smith? No more David Boston and Frank Sanders leaves who at wide receiver? Talk about a collection of retreads and never-were's. I know they beat the Cowboys on the weekend, but that doesn't mean anything. 0-16 is a distinct possibility for these guys, and I'll be very surprised if Emmitt Smith is still in uniform at the end of the season. If he doesn't come up lame around week 9 and spend the rest of the year on the injured list, it'll be a quick retirement.

Does anyone else have a shot at the 0-for this year? If not for the fact that they're in a very weak division I'd say the Vikings are contenders for that prestigious mark. Take last years 6-10 team and subtract the 1200 yard rusher and what do you get? An even more one dimensional offense and more pressure on Culpepper, which can only mean more turnovers and an even longer season in the Twin Cities.

Of course, just for completeness' sake any discussion about 0-16 has to include the Bengals, but for some reason I don't think they'll be that bad this year. Just a feeling, I guess.

I've been hearing good things about Onterrio Smith, so their running game could still be intact.

If David Carr regresses (or gets shell shocked from the continued beatings) then the Texans are positioned well for an 0-16 run.
And, as long as Quincy Carter and Chad Hutchinson are the quarterbacks in Big D, the Cowboys have to be mentioned as contenders for 0-16.

According to NFL.com, the Cowboys have the 2nd hardest schedule of the season. But they wont go 0-16. The offense may suck right now, but the defense is still good enough to hold them together for the close wins. Hutch and Quincy will improve.

I believe Cards are the number one candidates. Blake, Emmitt, a subpar coach, and a subpar defense. At least the Bengals show promise with Coach Lewis, Corey Dillon, and an emerging Carson Palmer, who may take over the starting job at anytime during the season. The Cowboys and Texans have young quarterbacks that can improve, to go along with good defenses. And the Lions have a good offense.

The Texans will be improved this year now that Carr has a weapon. Corey Bradford isn't bad as a second option, and now that Andre Johnson (that's his name, right?) is in the picture they'll be in a better position than they were a year ago.

The Cowboys will squeak out a couple of 9-6 wins but I don't see much improvement this season, Parcells or not. Getting shutout by Arizona wasn't a good start. Last year defenses had to show a little respect for Emmitt Smith, but if Troy Hambrick is your starting running back, forget that. Everyone will just be pinning their ears back and headhunting whichever poor sap gets sent out under centre for the 'Boys.

As far as Onterrio Smith, I've heard his name kicked around a bit this summer as well, but Doug Chapman has still been the most productive Vikings RB of the pre-season. I know rookies can take time to get into the swing, but that's not a good sign...

Don't forget, they actually have a real running back this year, in Stacey Mack. Plus, the offensive line can't be as putrid as it was last year.

NFL parity pretty much ensures nobody will ever go 16-0 or 0-16. Hell, if the Lions couldn't do it, nobody will.

Bold prediction: The Cardinals will win in their first game this year. Well, not really bold - they *are* playing Detroit, after all, so it's not much of a stretch.

Besides, I think the more important question is whether Tampa can go 16-0 ;)

I think it's harder to go 0-16 than it is to go 16-0. Every year there's always one team that flirts with an o-fer season, but then they pop up and beat some (usually good) team napping and get a close win.

The only o-fer season in modern NFL history were the inaugural season Buccaneers, right? I wonder if those guys all get together and toast when the last beaten team wins a game, like the '72 Dolphins do when the last unbeaten team loses.

The Bucs ONLY went 0-14.

Tampa Bay posted the first win-less season since another expansion team, the 1960 Dallas Cowboys, went 0-11-1. It was the first time a team had lost all their games since 1944, when team rosters were depleted due to World War II. The Brooklyn Tigers (who had changed their nickname from the Dodgers and were in their last NFL season) and Card-Pitt (a team resulting out of a one year merger between the Cardinals and Pittsburgh) went 0-10. The zero victories is a mark the team has not repeated, but they would go on to lose fourteen games (over a sixteen game schedule) on three more occasions. This was the only season that the Bucs did not win at least one home game. Frustrated fans came up with slogans for the first year Bucs. "Go for O" and "Throw McKay in the Bay" were the most memorable.

OF course, the 0-14 Bucs gave us one of the best in modern sports history:

The Cards should win a few games. They do have the easiest schedule in the league based on last years results and only play 5 teams with 2002 records above .500. How many they win is another story.

I think now-a-days it's almost impossible to go O for the season... There's going to have to have one week where a team looking ahead to a real team and looks past you, that's when you sneak in a cheap win.

Hey, the Panther's came pretty freaking close in 2001. If it wasn't for the ineptitude of the Vikings, Carolina would've had the first 0-16 season.

Carolina, there could be another contender. Unless their D has a big year they won't be doing a whole hell of a lot this season. Stephen Davis doesn't do anything for me, and I forget who their QB is but I remember being pretty unimpressed when I looked over their depth chart before my draft last week.

Well they are playing at Ford Field, and they barely beat the Lions last year due to a bullshit call, so I'd say it's at best a 50-50 chance.

With the level of parity of the NFL and Marty Morninhweg no longer employed as an NFL head coach, there's just no team spectacularly incompetent enough to go winless. The Cardinals will give it a shot, but I don't see it happening.

And the Vikings could be really good this year, if Culpepper doesn't completely suck it and Moss doesn't turn into a headcase.
