A look at how many starters have left since the Super Bowl

I have mentioned before on here that one of my worries about losing Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in the Kevin Kolb trade is just bleeding away another good player like we have done over the last couple of years. Here is a way of showing you what I mean by looking at the starting lineup from Super Bowl 43 and how many of these guys are still around.

Here is the list copied directly from Wikipedia. I'll have a thing saying if they are still here or not, and if they are still here the words will be bolded. For free agents who haven't signed here or somewhere else yet, I'll consider them to still be Cardinals for this thing.

Position Arizona
OFFENSE
WR Larry Fitzgerald - Here
LT Mike Gandy - Gone
LG Reggie Wells - Gone
C Lyle Sendlein - Here
RG Deuce Lutui - Here
RT Levi Brown - Here
TE Leonard Pope - Gone
WR Anquan Boldin - Gone
QB Kurt Warner - Gone
RB Edgerrin James - Gone
FB Terrelle Smith - Gone
DEFENSE
LE Antonio Smith - Gone
LDT Bryan Robinson - Here
RDT Darnell Dockett - Here
RE Gabe Watson - Here
LOLB Chike Okeafor - Gone
ILB Gerald Hayes - Gone
ROLB Karlos Dansby - Gone
LCB Roderick Hood - Gone
RCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie - Gone
SS Adrian Wilson - Here
FS Antrel Rolle - Gone

 

So, out of 22 starters from the Super Bowl, eight of them are still here. Makes you think doesn't it. You can also look at how Steve Breaston who was so huge for this team in 2008 is also gone and now it is 8 of 23. At least some of the new starters (Calais Campbell, Dan Williams, Greg Toler) have looked good though.
