As the new NFL season is just on the horizon there is one team that i cannot grasp onto and their name is the Arizona Cardinals. I love Ken Whisenhunt and I have watched their personnel and draft moves over the past couple years and i have been impressed but it did not translate onto the field. Are the Arizona Cardinals…the “Pittsburgh Steelers West” or just another bad NFC West team? I know for one thing that they will be better. The QB rotation the last couple seasons post the Kurt Warner era has been awful. Derek Anderson, John Skelton, Max Hall, Matt Leinart, you get the picture.
Kevin Kolb is good but how good. Will good QB play take the pressure off of an over worked defense? Will Beanie Wells run hard or is he an official bust. Too bad about the injury to rookie running back Ryan Williams, he was just about to pass Wells on the depth chart. So really what can we do with this team? The first 4 weeks of the season should tell us all we need to know. All winnable games. Week 1 At home vs Carolina (should be favored, but leaning towards the Panthers there, better running game and defense) on the road next against the Redskins (get the skins early, another team that is a mystery) at Seattle (i hate the Seahawks, Andrew Luck or Matt Barkley that is the plan for Pete Carroll), and then home to the Giants (always a tough trip to the west coast). Lets wait and see until after week 4 before we know for sure.
