The Difference Between 8-8 and 12-4..... Its not Manning....


So there is another article out there about some top Free Agent that the Cardinals may or may not get. Im going to say something that is going to rock people here we are going to win 12 games next year. The reason for this is because of one word, this word is so huge no one guy can do it, and every team needs it..... DEFENSE.

Last year we finished 8-8... Here are the stats first 7 games vs last 9 games: http://blog.azcardinals.com/2012/01/26/improved-defense-by-the-numbers/

So from this we can see the Cardinals shaved in the span of a couple days almost 8 points per game off the board which of corse was a huge reason for the 7-2 finish. Its not about QB (Skelton Vs. Kolb), its not about Offence at all its about our Defense. Now it also shows that we still were 13th in yardage given up at the end of the year. But look at that red zone defense. Part of me thinks that to get the defense off the field faster Ray Orton should let them get to the 20 and then let them kick the field goal Line them up like red rover on the 20 then they are only on the field for 5 plays.

Im sure im going to get comments like thats stupid, you dont know what your talking about. It was a joke. The whole red rover thing. complete joke. sarcasm....

Okay that being said. if we apply even a five point reduction to the rest of the cardinals games last year allowing for maybe better offenses or something we would of won 12 games last year. Wins over the Giants, Ravens, Washington, and Seattle.

Im excited for the next 10 years not because of Manning, or Kolb or Skelton (though a side note on John Skelton, I think he is going to be a really good QB just not for another 2 or 3 years so keep him around) but that defense. Keep drafting well, hopefully Bradley comes along or cut him, and Washington is a stud sign him to a deal soon. Oh and CC what the hell get him signed already i dont want another Dansby here (of corse if he is looking for max money and we cant do that then dont give in as we lost dansby but we found a replacement in Washington, which is what good teams do)
