Cardinals new look



I know we have lost a couple of players this season, and I know some of our fellow fans are upset about it and think we are reverting into the "same old Cardinals", but let's all take a deep breath and step back from the ledge.  We all loved Q, but as many of you have already stated, this trade was absolutely expected.  He was a great player for our Cardinals, but it was time to part ways, and I believe Early and Steve B can fill that spot admirably.  Besides, we still have the best WR in the game.

We lost Rolle, who is now the highest paid safety in NFL history.  I don't think there are many Cardinals fans who aren't ok with not making him the highest paid safety on our team.  Besides, we are replacing him with another safety who has very favorable stats, is the same age, annd costs a lot less.

We lost Dansby.  Anyone out there surprised?  I guess I didn't realize that not making the Pro Bowl in your 6 year career was grounds for being the highest paid linebacker in the league, but maybe that's just me.

Warner retired, again, I don't think a lot of us are surprised.  Leinart is in great position to prove a lot of people wrong about him being a bust, and to prove the Cardinals right for drafting him 10th overall 4 years ago.  I personally think he will be just fine riding the horse that is Timmy Hightower and Beanie Wells.  Oh, and when he does need to throw it, he has Fotz-the best WR in the league, Breaston-who has always been outstanding starting for Q, and Doucet, a physical 3rd WR who plays a similar game to Q.

I know our defense still needs some help, specifically at LB, but our secondary of A-dubb, Rhodes, DRC, and (I hope) Toler will be formidable.  If we find a pass rush via remaining free agents or the draft, I believe we could be looking at a 3rd straight division crown.
