Upon reading Darren Urban's blog post from this morning, I came across a very interesting comment that he made concerning the scheduled opponents for the 2010 season.
The Cards have home games against Tampa, New Orleans, Denver, Oakland and their “matching” NFC East finisher; they have road trips to Atlanta, Carolina, Kansas City, San Diego and the “matching” NFC North team).

I know that we can't count our chickens before they hatch but I do like the look of the scheduled opponents for next year. While there is not any dates set for these games yet, and who knows what state of the Cardinals will be in or any team for that matter, but based off of the current status of the teams listed I think a 10-6 year is doable with the teams listed.
Don't forget that we'd have the 49ers, Seahawks, and Rams twice in 2010 as well. So the NFC East "matching" oppenent will always be tough, the NFC North "matching" opponent can will be difficult in different aspects depending on who it is Green Bay, Bears, or Vikings, but still I look at that schedule and think 10-6 is a possibility. It would require some offseason help to fill in the voids that will be the Offensive Tackles.
What do you guys think? Too early to think about this? Focus on the present?
