TEMPE, Ariz. -

Embarrassed on Monday night, the Arizona Cardinals are left to try to pick up the pieces of a season that once seemed so promising but now shows signs of a free fall.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt, who endured a six-game losing streak a year ago, is not one to panic and said so in his news conference a day after the Cardinals were manhandled by the San Francisco 49ers 24-3.

It was Arizona's fourth loss in a row after a 4-0 start.

Now comes a short week of practice and a trip to Green Bay to face the Packers on Sunday.
