2011 NFL Season Preview:

DC Ray Horton, QB Kevin Kolb, TE Todd Heap, TE Jeff King, G Pork Chop Womack, G Daryn Colledge, DE/DT Vonnie Holliday, DE/DT Nick Eason, ILB Stewart Bradley, CB Richard Marshall.
Early Draft Picks:
CB Patrick Peterson, RB Ryan Williams, TE Rob Housler, DE/OLB Sam Acho, FB Anthony Sherman, ILB Quan Sturdivant.
Offseason Losses:
DC Bill Davis, QB Derek Anderson, RB Tim Hightower, WR Steve Breaston, TE Ben Patrick, DT Alan Branch, NT Gabe Watson, ILB Gerald Hayes, CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

2011 Arizona Cardinals Offense:
Last year was a disaster for this offense. Whether it was Derek Anderson's intoxication, Max Hall's physical limitations or John Skelton's inexperience, the Cardinals struggled to find the end zone the entire season, scoring 18 points or fewer on 10 occasions. It's safe to say that Kurt Warner was missed.

Understandably frustrated about the direction of the franchise, Larry Fitzgerald threatened to leave the Cardinals if they didn't upgrade the team, mainly at the quarterback position. Fitzgerald's signal-caller of choice was Kevin Kolb, whom he worked out with on several occasions during the summer. Though the Eagles had Arizona by the balls considering Fitzgerald's demands, the Cardinals came away with a steal, landing Kolb for merely a second-round pick and a cornerback who struggled last year in Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Kolb doesn't have much experience, but he has the talent to be a franchise quarterback. Most want to look at his first-ever appearance against the Ravens in 2008 (an unfair position for Kolb, who didn't get any reps during the week and had to battle one of the NFL's top defenses) or his first-half struggles versus Green Bay in the opener, but he was 23-of-29 for 326 yards, three touchdowns and an interception against eventual NFC No. 1 seed Atlanta in Week 6 last year.

Kolb has been lighting it up in training camp, as he and Fitzgerald have predictably gelled quickly. Whether that will continue during actual games remains to be seen, but nevertheless, Kolb is a huge upgrade over what Arizona had at the position last season, even if he struggles a bit.

The Cardinals signed Todd Heap this offseason, giving Kolb a solid intermediate target to work with - as long as Heap stays healthy of course. Steve Breaston is gone, but that's fine because his knees are shot anyway. Andre Roberts is the new No. 2 wideout. Most don't know his name, but Roberts caught five passes for 110 yards and a touchdown in the penultimate game of his rookie campaign. Roberts was a talented receiving prospect coming out of the Citadel, and he could be a fantasy surprise this season.

One player who will have to step up is Chris Wells. A first-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, Wells disappointed by averaging 3.4 yards per carry last year after maintaining a 4.5 YPC in 2009. Wells struggled through injuries and was hampered by poor quarterbacking, so there's a good chance that he'll have a bounce-back 2011 campaign. Second-round rookie Ryan Williams will handle the third-down work.

With the quarterback position shored up, Arizona's greatest offensive weakness is the blocking up front. The unit was terrible last year, allowing 50 sacks, which was the fourth-highest in the NFL (Bears, 60; Eagles, 52; Steelers, 52). The Cardinals brought in free-agent guards Daryn Colledge and Pork Chop Womack, both of whom aren't very good. They both figure to start unless "Double" Deuce Lutui loses all the weight he gained this offseason (he reported to camp at 400 pounds).

The tackle positions are even worse. Manning the blind side, Levi Brown surrendered 10 sacks in 2010 after giving up nine the year before. Right tackle Brandon Keith permitted six sacks in nine starts. Luckily, Arizona has some stability at one position; center Lyle Sendlein was pretty good last season, and earned a well-deserved 5-year contract after the lockout was lifted.



2011 Arizona Cardinals Defense:
It's rare that a team can lose its No. 1 cornerback and still improve its secondary. The Cardinals managed to do that, as they could afford to ship out Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after spending the No. 5 overall selection on Patrick Peterson. Peterson projects as the next shutdown corner, and will instantly present an upgrade over Rodgers-Cromartie, who didn't show any interest in tackling last season.

Peterson will play across from Greg Toler, a pretty marginal starting corner, and safeties Kerry Rhodes and Adrian Wilson. Rhodes has really regressed over the years once he stopped taking football seriously, which is a shame. Wilson, meanwhile, is a Pro Bowl-caliber strong safety, but is coming off a down year because he was playing with a torn abductor muscle. Wilson figured to rebound in 2011, but tore his biceps in training camp. He may play through the injury, but he'll be a far cry from 100 percent.

The Cardinals also brought in Richard Marshall to compete for a starting cornerback job, but Marshall struggled with the Panthers last year. Perhaps he'd do better with an improved pass rush supporting him, but Arizona won't be able to provide that. The Cardinals mustered 33 sacks in 2010, good for 20th in the NFL. No player had more than five sacks excluding Calais Campbell, who finished with six.

Looking at the depth chart, it's easy to see why Arizona can't get to the quarterback. Its starting rush linebackers, Joey Porter and Clark Haggans, are both 34. The only hope is second-year O'Brien Schofield, a talented prospect out of Wisconsin who tore his ACL prior to the 2010 NFL Draft. Rookie Sam Acho figures to be too raw to be in the mix.

The Cardinals are pretty strong in the interior of their defense. Campbell, Darnell Dockett and Dan Williams combine for a pretty formidable defensive front, though the latter reported to training camp overweight and out of shape. Campbell and Dockett do a good job of generating some pass rush, while Williams stuffed the run very effectively as a rookie last year.

Outside of Peterson, the star of Arizona's defense figures to be inside linebacker Daryl Washington, who is coming off a very promising rookie campaign. He'll play next to newly signed Stewart Bradley, who hasn't been the same player since tearing his ACL a couple of years ago. However, Bradley won't be asked to do as much in Arizona's defense as he did with the Eagles; he'll be a two-down run-defender next to Washington.



2011 Arizona Cardinals Schedule and Intangibles:
Something that was apparent during Arizona's postseason run in 2008 was the homefield advantage the team unceremoniously established. Including the playoffs, the Cardinals are 23-12 as hosts the past four years. They were even a relatively decent 4-4 last season.

LaRod Stephens-Howling is a really good kick-returner; he's scored three times in the past two years, including twice in 2010. He averaged 27.2 yards per attempt, which is an impressive figure.

Jay Feely replaced Neil Rackers last year, and performed better than expected. He drilled 24-of-27 attempts, including 2-of-3 from 50-plus.

Punter Ben Graham didn't do too well in 2010, maintaining a mediocre 43.4 average with 29-of-94 attempts inside the 20.

Playing in the NFC West with a last-place schedule, the Cardinals have their share of easy opponents. In addition to the 49ers and Seahawks twice, they also get the Panthers, Redskins, Vikings, Browns and Bengals.



2011 Arizona Cardinals Positional Rankings (1-5 stars):

2011 Arizona Cardinals Analysis: The Cardinals still have major holes on their roster, particularly on the offensive line and at rush linebacker, but they're going to be much better than they were in 2010. Kevin Kolb gives them much-needed stability and leadership at the quarterback position. He obviously won't be as good as Kurt Warner, but thanks to an easy schedule and a terrible NFC West, the Cardinals have a legitimate chance to quality for the playoffs.

Projection: 7-9 (2nd in NFC West)

it looks like mcnabb is going to the vkginis although i feel the cardinal would b a better fit because he has already held several mini camps there and lets face it Fitzgerald needs somebody to get him the ball i don't feel he was treated appropriately by the shannahan family as i feel that they do not know what true quarterback talent is sorry mike shannahan the days of elway obedience is over not everybody is gonna believe shannahans statement about mcnabbs cardiovascular health im sorry shannahan made a bunch of ludicrous statements in an effort to execute a cya move. great post sir

Despite what you may say, Kolb is still the starter. That means that ARI is going to get into a hole that Skelton can't dig out of. Your 9-7 prediction seems like just a little too much.

"Considering the issues the 49ers have (really high expectations, a taxing schedule, trouble-makers in the locker room), it shouldn't surprise anyone if the Cardinals steal the NFC West this year."
LOL this page is supposedly about the Cardinals, and at the end you just HAD TO spew more 49ers HATE... Oh yeah BTW, you didn't gave the 49ers ANY chance last year either... Many clueless Fans and sports reporter/critics alike failed to understands the importance of what a good NFL HC and coaching staff brings to the table when it comes to winning and losing on Sundays...

I think Skelton COULD be a solid starter but he has a long way to go and has a lot of improvements to make before he's the franchise guy.

I disagree that his "one flaw" was locking onto Fitzgerald too much: he was erratic and made poor decisions throughout the year. Once the 4th quarter hit he was much improved but he's not at the level he needs to be just yet. He's a project guy and I think he'll need a year or two more to adjust. But with a good work ethic and accuracy (he had a 62.7 completion % in college, higher then Peyton Manning's) I think he could be a damn good Quarterback at the end of the year if he starts all 16 games!

And don't throw Kolb totally under the the bus just yet. He needs to get a chance to prove himself (we haven't seen enough from him yet) and I think he could very well be the answer as well. Both guys are unproven yet have potential. Whether it develops we'll see this year...

That said, the rest of the analysis is very sound and I think this team has a much better shot at the division then people are giving them credit for!

I DO think the Cards see an improvement in the W/L record this season over last. The QB's should both benefit from a full off season. Kolb never had that, and Skelton never had it with the 1st/2nd team starters. If Kolb still acts skitish they need to cut their losses and give the reins to Skelton.

Can we give Kolb a chance? I know we are going off of what we saw last year. The dude was never comfortable in our system, plus with no offseason! Last year was Skeltons 2nd year in our system. I just think we need to give Kolb a chance, see what he does in training camp and preseason this year before we start writing him off. This will be the year for him to show us how good he can be. I trust Whiz and He will choose the QB that will give us the best chance to win. And let me tell you... I dont like to get ahead of myself... But... 3-5 years from now.. Remember our 6th round pick Ryan Lindley.

Nice writeup Walt. I think we do better than 9-7. The key will be Skelton starting. I love our running game for this year. Beanie Wells proved he is a solid back last year and Ryan Williams will light it up as our #2.

We made the right side of our O-line alot better with Adam Snyder and Bobby Massie. Both will upgrade the run blocking big time over last year.

I think most underestimate our tightends. They should have a very produtive year. Housler should have a breakout year. His speed and athletic ability is like Vernon Davis.

Our defense will keep us in every game. I wlll put them up against the 49ers defense anyday. If Skelton starts from day one I can see us winning 11 games. If Kolb starts I see 8-8.

Skeleton is our #1, since Kolb cant throw to save his life and is way to skittish. Hopefully your wrong and they start Skeleton from the beginning. But our D is great, and even though we dont have OTs, we have Colledge and now Snyder from SF. And with Floyd, we now have a great passing game. Our running game isnt that great, I agree, but Beanie isnt that bad, and we drafted Williams. Williams will be our #1 back in 4 games, and with him, we can finally generate some yards on the ground and take pressure off Skeleton and Fitz. I dont think we will win the West, but if they let Kolb walk, we will be great for years to come.

FYI, Justin Smith is the BEST 5-technique in the NFL... and thats not even close (actual production and years of better production, not to mention he is a great leader)... and though ARZ has a decent D- unit, They are nothing compared to the 9er D (which only gets better now that aldon smith is starting, and is solid in EVERY position)... And 1st in the NFC West??? the 9ers dont have to deal with much, especially in such a strong locker room with great leadership from players and coaches alike... HAHAHA... come on Walt... they have no qb since management is going to push for Kolb again, no matter how good Skeleton is because Kolb will be making about $10+ mil next year... Their offense is a JOKE, save for one of the top 3 WR's in the NFL (future HOF all the way, no matter who throws to him)... Floyd might be good too, but they have no one to throw to them... They have crap line, except for Colledge, no TE safety valves, and Beanie is a bust at RB... I think Skeleton will be good if he is ever given a proper chance; sadly, kolb will screw up the 1st half of the season, leaving skeleton to try and clean up the mess in a 1/2 season... with no continuity in the position on the team that NEEDS continuity so the whole team can function properly...
5-11 if they switch to Skeleton 1/2 way through the season
2-14 with Kolb all the way
8-8 if Skeleton starts from day 1

Walt I see your point in picking the Cardinals to win the division but I strongly disagree. Their offensive line is pretty bad, and there are problems at CB across Patrick Peterson plus questions at safety. I think the 49ers will not live up to expectations but the NFC West is so weak, they could go 8-8 and probs still win

Great way to cherry pick data. Skelton has better stats than Kolb, but only if you only count passes thrown to Fitzgerald. Taking in to account the fact that other receivers do in fact exist, Kolb had better stats in every category except that he threw 2 fewer TDs. Kolb threw 6 fewer INTs than Skelton too.

arizona finishes 7-2 and jon skelton is the king of all football because he had 4 more completions to fitz than the awful kolb

so 7-2 finish = 9-7
a 6-3 finish for miami leads to 3-13 because of their owner?

Walter, you're embarrassing yourself. Arizona will be battling Seattle for second place again this season. The only way the 49ers don't win the division comfortably is if they are wiped out by injuries.

2011 NFL Draft Grades:

Once again, I'm not going to penalize the Cardinals for passing on a quarterback at No. 5. Taking Blaine Gabbert probably would have led to Larry Fitzgerald's exodus, which would have been a nightmare for all the fans, the front office and the owner. Fitzgerald wants a veteran quarterback, so he's getting a veteran quarterback.

Even with that in mind, I'm not a fan of Arizona's 2011 NFL Draft. I really thought the Cardinals had to address the offensive front, and yet they didn't spend a single selection to improve it. Instead of grabbing a luxury running back or an early tight end, why not select a Ben Ijalana or John Moffitt? Whether the next quarterback is Kevin Kolb or Marc Bulger, he's going to have a very difficult time behind a pedestrian offensive line.

Arizona made some nice Day 3 selections, but the team still figures to struggle mightily in 2011.

Overall 2011 NFL Draft Grade given on 5/1/11: C



2011 NFL Draft Individual Grades:

5. Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
This grade is pretty simple. The Cardinals need corner help, and Patrick Peterson is arguably the top prospect in this draft. He has Charles Woodson-type upside.

I'm not penalizing the Cardinals for not taking the quarterback because they have a veteran regime that has to win now. (Pick Grade: A)

38. Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech
This is a pretty weird pick. Ryan Williams is a talented prospect, but why are the Cardinals selecting a running back this early? Have they given up on Chris Wells? Wells has had his fair share of issues, but maybe the offensive line and poor quarterback play is to blame. (Pick Grade: C)

69. Rob Housler, TE, Florida Atlantic
I'm not crazy about this selection either. Rob Housler fills a need for the Cardinals, but this is pretty early for him, as none of the major scouting services had him in the top 100. (Pick Grade: C)

103. Sam Acho, DE/OLB, Texas
I love this pick. The Cardinals really needed to address their pass rush, and Sam Acho could have easily gone in Round 2. (Pick Grade: A)

136. Anthony Sherman, FB, Connecticut
I didn't think the Cardinals had to take a new running back to improve their ground attack. I felt like they needed a fullback and upgrades on the offensive line. Anthony Sherman satisfies the former, but I think this is a bit too early for him. (Pick Grade: C)

171. Quan Sturdivant, ILB, North Carolina
Major value. Quan Sturdivant could have easily gone in the third round. He also fills a need next to Daryl Washington; Paris Lenon can be upgraded. (Pick Grade: A)

184. David Carter, DE/DT, UCLA
David Carter will provide some defensive line depth. This is the right range for Carter, so this is a decent pick. (Pick Grade: B)

249. DeMarco Sampson, WR, San Diego State
DeMarco Sampson is a receiver with upside who could eventually develop into a starter. This is a solid final selection for Arizona. (Pick Grade: B)





Season Summary:
The difference between a Hall of Famer, and a drunken quarterback and two raw signal-callers? The Cardinals went from a Super Bowl contender to a five-win team in the wake of Kurt Warner's retirement. Now, they have to start all over.




Offseason Moves:
  • Cardinals re-sign S Matt Ware
  • Giants sign NT Gabe Watson
  • Panthers sign QB Derek Anderson
  • Giants sign TE Ben Patrick
  • Redskins acquire RB Tim Hightower from Cardinals for DE/DT Vonnie Holliday and conditional late-round pick
  • Cardinals sign TE Todd Heap
  • Cardinals re-sign G Deuce Lutui
  • Cardinals sign G Pork Chop Womack
  • Cardinals sign CB Richard Marshall
  • Cardinals re-sign CB Michael Adams
  • Cardinals sign ILB Stewart Bradley
  • Cardinals re-sign TE Stephen Spach
  • Cardinals sign WR Chansi Stuckey
  • Cardinals re-sign S Hamza Abdullah
  • Seahawks sign DT Alan Branch
  • Cardinals re-sign C Lyle Sendlein
  • Cardinals sign DE/DT Nick Eason
  • Cardinals acquire QB Kevin Kolb from Eagles for CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and 2nd-round pick
  • Cardinals sign G Daryn Colledge
  • Chiefs sign WR Steve Breaston
  • Cardinals sign TE Jeff King
  • Cardinals re-sign P Ben Graham
  • Cardinals cut QB Derek Anderson
  • Cardinals cut ILB Gerald Hayes
  • Cardinals announce retirement of G Alan Faneca
  • Cardinals sign C Kris O'Dowd
  • Cardinals hire DC Ray Horton


    Offseason Needs:
    1. Quarterback: Is John Skelton the guy? If not, the Cardinals may draft a quarterback (Blaine Gabbert) at No. 5. If Ken Whisenhunt believes Skelton can eventually be Arizona's franchise quarterback, he'll sign a veteran (Marc Bulger, Donovan McNabb) to play until Skelton is ready. Traded for Kevin Kolb

    2. Left Tackle: Levi Brown was probably the worst offensive lineman in the NFL this season. As a Penn State grad, I hang my head in shame. Nate Solder and Demarcus Love will be options in Round 2.

    3. Two Rush Linebackers: Joey Porter and Clark Haggans really embarrassed themselves this year, combining for just 10 sacks and struggling in run support. O'Brien Schofield is a promising prospect, but the Cardinals need two new pass-rushers. They can begin by taking Robert Quinn at No. 5 overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. Drafted Sam Acho

    4. Left Guard: Alan Faneca was awful in 2010 and will be heading for retirement. There will be numerous guard options available in the middle rounds. Signed Daryn Colledge and Pork Chop Womack

    5. Right Tackle: The platoon of Brandon Keith and Jeremy Bridges was very ineffective. Though they looked great compared to Levi Brown, an upgrade is still desperately needed.

    6. Inside Linebacker: Paris Lenon should not be starting in the NFL. Help is needed next to Daryl Washington. Signed Stewart Bradley; drafted Quan Sturdivant

    7. Cornerback: Some cornerback depth wouldn't hurt just in case Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie sucks again next year. Drafted Patrick Peterson; signed Richard Marshall

    8. Free Safety: Kerry Rhodes is physically talented, but shows no interest in run support. Arizona can get by with Rhodes as a starter next year, but an upgrade wouldn't hurt.

    9. Fullback: The Cardinals need some help at fullback to open up their running game. Drafted Anthony Sherman








    2011 NFL Free Agent Signings:
    1. Stewart Bradley, ILB, Eagles. Age: 27.
      Signed with Cardinals

      Stewart Bradley really struggled in coverage this past season, but that's understandable because he was only a year removed from ACL surgery. He'll move to strongside linebacker in 2011, assuming he re-signs with the team.

    2. Richard Marshall, CB, Panthers. Age: 26.
      Signed with Cardinals

      Richard Marshall whined about not receiving a long-term extension this past offseason. He subsequently struggled throughout the 2010 season, though some of that blame falls on Carolina's lacking pass rush.

    3. Todd Heap, TE, Ravens. Age: 31.
      Signed with Cardinals (2 years)

      Todd Heap could be brought back to Baltimore at a cheaper price, but he's obviously a declining player who will only lose time to Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta despite the fact that he hauled in 10 receptions in a victory over Kansas City in the playoffs.

    4. Daryn Colledge, G, Packers. Age: 29.
      Signed with Cardinals

      Daryn Colledge can be upgraded, but the Packers could do worse at left guard.

    5. Pork Chop Womack, G, Browns. Age: 32.
      Signed with Cardinals

      Pork Chop Womack has done an OK job at right guard for the Browns the past couple of years, but he can be upgraded.

    6. Nick Eason, DE/DT, Steelers. Age: 31. -- Signed with Cardinals (2 years)
    7. Kris O'Dowd, C, USC. Age: 23. -- Signed with Cardinals
    8. Chansi Stuckey, WR, Browns. Age: 27. -- Signed with Cardinals (2 years, $3.5 million)
    9. Jeff King, TE, Panthers. Age: 28. -- Signed with Cardinals



    Arizona Cardinals Free Agents:

    Salary Cap: No cap.
    1. Lyle Sendlein, C, Cardinals. Age: 27.
      Re-signed with Cardinals

      Arizona's best offensive lineman, Lyle Sendlein hasn't missed a start in three years. He needs to be re-signed.

    2. Ben Graham, P, Cardinals. Age: 37.
      Re-signed with Cardinals

      A decent punter, Ben Graham hit for a 43.4 average with nearly a third of his many attempts inside the 20.

    3. Tim Hightower, RB, Cardinals. Age: 25.
      Traded to Redskins

      Tim Hightower averaged 4.8 yards per carry in 2010 and caught 63 balls the year before. He's a solid third-down back.

    4. Alan Branch, DT, Cardinals. Age: 26.
      Signed with Seahawks

      Alan Branch offers nothing in terms of a pass rush, but can stuff the run effectively when he's motivated.

    5. Steve Breaston, WR, Cardinals. Age: 28.
      Signed with Chiefs (5 years)

      Steve Breaston's yardage totals the past three years: 1,006, 712 and 718. Unfortunately, he just can't stay healthy.

    6. Deuce Lutui, G, Cardinals. Age: 28.
      Re-signed with Cardinals

      Derek Anderson's laughing partner, Deuce Lutui and his drunken quarterback were probably making fun of their own ineptness this year. Lutui was much better in 2009, but it looks like he's going to suck again. He signed with the Bengals, but failed his physical.

    7. Gerald Hayes, ILB, Cardinals. Age: 30.
    8. Stephen Spach, TE, Cardinals. Age: 29. -- Re-signed with Cardinals
    9. Early Doucet (RFA), WR, Cardinals. Age: 25.
    10. Michael Adams, CB, Cardinals. Age: 26. -- Re-signed with Cardinals (2 years)
    11. Brandon Keith (RFA), OT, Cardinals. Age: 26.
    12. Derek Anderson, QB, Cardinals. Age: 28. -- Signed with Panthers
    13. Alan Faneca, G, Cardinals. Age: 34. -- Announced retirement
    14. Kenny Iwebema (RFA), DE, Cardinals. Age: 26.
    15. Reggie Walker, ILB, Cardinals. Age: 24.
    16. Bryan Robinson, DT, Cardinals. Age: 37.
    17. Ben Patrick, TE, Cardinals. Age: 27. -- Signed with Giants
    18. Gabe Watson, DT, Cardinals. Age: 27. -- Signed with Giants
    19. Matt Ware, S, Cardinals. Age: 28. -- Re-signed with Cardinals
    20. Nehemiah Broughton (RFA), FB, Cardinals. Age: 28.
    21. Hamza Abdullah, S, Cardinals. Age: 28. -- Re-signed with Cardinals
    22. Ben Claxton, C, Cardinals. Age: 31.

    Divisional Rival History:
    San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers get up for these games; they've taken six of the past eight in this rivalry.
    Seattle Seahawks: Arizona won six of seven prior to the 2010 season. Kurt Warner's absence hurt, as the Seahawks swpet this series.
    St. Louis Rams: Arizona has won eight of the past nine matchups in this series. That figures to change because of the quarterback situation of both teams.
