Could the Cardinals be a Surprise Team in 2008?

EPSN’s Hashmarks has posted their five surprise teams for 2008, and the Cardinals are on the list.  Here is the commentary on Arizona and their outlook for the season:

They went 8-8 last year and that was their best record since 1998. Still, it’s always easy to doubt the Cardinals will ever turn the corner. But maybe things really are different with Ken Whisenhunt coaching this team.

Whisenhunt has worked hard to fix an offensive line that’s been laughable for a decade, he has one of the league’s most talented receiving corps and the defense already is respectable. If quarterback Matt Leinart can just make a little progress (and stay healthy), the Cardinals could be a contender in the weak NFC West.

  1. This makes how many years in a row our beloved Cards have been the chic pick? I’d love this to be “the year”, but the schedule makes it tough. For example, the Cards play road games at three of Mosley’s other four hip picks: Carolina, the Jets, and that Thanksgiving game at Philly. And don’t get me started on the December game at Foxboro. Seattle gets both Philly and New England at home. Yeah, the division is weak, but the Cards’ schedule is brutal.

  2. Could this be the Year? Last season I thought they would jump out and right away the Cards made bone head mistakes on both sides of the ball. Matt Leinart looked confused and uncomfortable and the O-Line had early injury problems but by the middle of the season up to the last game the team had bought into Whisenhunt’s program. So this year they are showing an attitude in camp I havent seen before. This is going to be a scary year for teams playing the Cards. They have more weapons and a mature line under Grim. This year the Cards will be the new NFC West Champs.
