His recent health scare was the last thing on the mind of Bruce Arians following Arizona's 19-3 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Friday.
Arizona came out of the defeat injury-free, leaving Arians to quip, per the team's official website: "That's about the only good news."
Problems for the Cardinals were largely centered around an offense that ripped through the league last season but looked flat against San Diego's underrated defense.
"We'll go back to work," Arians said. "That's why you play the preseason. These don't count other than you find out a lot about yourself."
Said Palmer: "Every part of you says it's the preseason because it is the preseason. We have to continue to work. You don't let it frustrate you. You look at the areas that are good with the areas that are bad, evaluate them, and move forward."
Still, don't expect Arians to sit back and gush over Friday's half-baked effort.
"A veteran team should show up," said the coach. "I didn't like the way we started the game and that set the tone the whole game."
