Oh man, this is serious! 


Don't know about you guys but there's no doubt in my mind that the Cards are serious about winning, looking at this draft in conjunction with acquiring Palmer. The NFC West is gonna be a real barn burner this coming season!

I agree...all the NFC West teams are having a tremendous draft....but I have always said " College talent doesnt always equate into NFL talent

True, but man when it does......what an impact! (i.e. Kaepernick, Wilson)

Palmer sucks like all of the USC qbs. He is an upgrade over what you had though.
Of course, this list must have Keyra. Unfortunately, most of the pics I can find are probably taboo for this site. I wish I could take credit for discovering her, but it was Heelz. Thank you, Heelz.-Heelswin6362 ®

CP is a good football player....With the talent he has now I expect 4500 yards..

Yes, he is good, but not great. He is right in the middle of the league in QB Rating.  A couple of years ago he had more int's than tds. Like I said, he'll be an upgrade, but he's probably not leading you to a Super Bowl.

I'm going to keep my eye on the Cardinals because of Cooper. He's a very gifted lineman that can get down field, and has an amazing attitude. Just a wonderful person.

Re: Oh man, this is serious! 


Football is a team sport.  You can't lay EVERY interception at the foot of a QB.  Neither should you credit him for EVERY TD scored.  The bottom line here is Carson Palmer hasn't been on a lot of really good teams lately.  He's now in a place of HIS choosing.  I'm encouraged by the accumulation of pieces the Cardinals are putting together, and have put together.  This should be a talented team.  It should be noted, however, I'm a flamin' homer.  wink

Re: Oh man, this is serious! 


I think the Cards have made moves to put themselves back into contention. The perception of analyst is that the NFC West is a two team race between hawks and 9ers and that the Rams will be impressive. Gonna make winning all the more sweeter. cool

49ers, Seahawks and Rams think that this is gonna be a cake walk, but they better bring their lunch pails when they face this retooled desert crew!!!

Re: Oh man, this is serious! 


No one that I know thinks the Cards are going to be a cakewalk. Their defense has been very tough and that creates trouble right there. All they really NEEDED to do was find a guy that could get the ball in the general area for Fitz, give him more than 3 seconds to deliver the ball and you have an instant offense.

They needed to stir things up and they did. The Cards will be a tough out and they will compete, but the issue is that both Seattle and SF were already tough and they both appeared to have improved their respective teams from their level. The way I see it, the Cards and Rams both will have to gain improvement by a larger margin in order to gain on either team. The division games will always be hard fought, but the real difference in win/loss record will come from the games outside the division. The days of sweeping the division are over, there should be a lot more balance within it. For the most part, those games are hard fought regardless of record with the exception of the debacle in the Clink last year. I'm sure the players are not taking the Cards lightly and I know I sure in the heck am not. Even in the days when the Hawks outright owned the division, the Cards were good for spoiling things once in a while.

One other thing. WHY IN THE HECK COULDNT THEY JUST BEAT THE NINERS IN WEEK 17? That cost the Hawks a trip to the Super Bowl. DOH!!

Re: Oh man, this is serious! 


Defenses are planning how to stop the pistol formation.  It was a gimmicky Offense that hit teams out of nowhere.  Special K is a long lean little focker and he hasn't taken a real serious hit yet.  Kaepernick goes down and the Niners are done.  

I am more concerned with the Hawks.  Wilson has some weapons.  Glad one of them is Pu**y Harvin who will miss half of the games with a headache.  The Defense is stout, and Cliff Avril was an add I wasn't really happy my Birds have to face 2x a year.  

The Rams are going to be in every game again this year.  The Defense keeps it close, and the Offense only has to punch in 2 TD's and a FG.

Re: Oh man, this is serious! 


I think if any of the starting QBs go down within the division, that the team is screwed. I can't speak to the Niners, but in the Hawks case, the offense is traditional for the most part with some flexibility. Defenses are certain to be put in place, but it will require more planning and deviance from standard preparation.

It still comes down to getting pressure in the end, do it well and results are there.

If Harvin has a migraine, I think it would be his first since 2010. Prior to last year, he averaged 15 games a season, ironically, it was the Hawks that took him out. Even then, after the ankle injury, the guy came back in the game after thinking he was done for the year. The other thing to consider is that the Hawks didnt need Harvin, in fact he was an addition, not a replacement. I am hoping that PH works out though and that he plays to his potential without missing any substantial time.

The division is a nasty one, that is for sure. The Niners did have some disruption, but they play pretty consistently and obviously are talented on both sides of the ball. If the Cards can generate some points, they will be a very different team. Hard to see them losing a bunch of games with a genuine QB, Palmer is the best thing since Warner and will make a difference. Wondering if Mendenhall will too.

Re: Oh man, this is serious! 


I definitely feel better about our depth at QB this year than any other I can remember.  Hoyer would be a solid backup anywhere else.  We have him as our 3rd string.  Stanton was a former 2nd round pick who I'm hoping does well with another year under Arians.  This guy has gotten boned everywhere he's been on the depth chart.  We couldn't pass up a chance to get Palmer here as I think he can still be a top 10 QB maybe even top 8.  But Stanton is under the radar IMO.

We need Mendenhall to get back to form.  I just hope our line can open up some holes in the zone blocking that BA runs.  I think its a superior scheme to the power run game but we still have some question marks on the line.  If Levi can be the man at LT we drafted him to be, and Colledge and Sendlein (who were never good fits IMO for Grimm's power scheme) improve, then Mendenhall and the other backs have a chance.  I'm also stoked about getting the Stanford RB.  

All I know is there is nowhere to go but up after the 58-0 massacre we had last yr. at Qwest Field.  ohlord

Re: Oh man, this is serious! 


I for one am glad the the NFC West is not looking like the laughing stock and butt of all jokes in the NFL and this last season is starting to put those notions to rest. This year will show the league the NFC West is for real as long as key players stay healthy!!!
The risk of failure is great, but the risk of not making the necessary changes to improve ones self will surely spell disaster!

Re: Oh man, this is serious! 


Levi Brown was drafted in 2007 to be our RT, protecting Matt Leinart's blindside for years to come.  We had Edgerrin James in the fold and passed on Adrian Peterson, presumably for these reasons.  You know BPA was not heeded when when you're thinking in such terms.  Where's Edge?  Where's Leinart?  Where's Peterson?  Hindsight is typically 20/20, but I do recall Levi Brown expected to go a few picks later than he was taken.  I hated the way the Cardinals were thinking back then.  Edge and Leinart just SMACKED of PR thinking.  Denny Green seemed to have bought into the stadium hoopla himself and consequently wasn't himself.  I'll get over it—SOMEDAY!  Arians and Keim will probably do the trick for me.
