Cardinals Future: "Nothing On The Horizon"?

So this article is a few days old, but I saw it on NFL.com and it seemed worth bringing up on ROTB. The list breaks down who (Gregg Rosenthal) thinks will win the SB soonest (for the first time in franchise history), and who is the furthest away (not very in-depth I might add).

Now the first thing that jumps out to me is the fact he has the Carolina Panthers as the first team he sees winning the SB for the first time. Personally, I see the Eagles and the Lions being MUCH closer to a title than the Panthers. I know Cam was good, but he is only going into his second year and I don't think is ready to lead a team to a SB. Not to mention I don't see their defense being where it needs to be (still have to see how John Beason comes back from that horrible injury).

My list would be:

First up: Philadelphia Eagles

Runner up: Detroit Lions

Knocking on the door: Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons

Sleepers: Arizona Cardinals, Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle Seahawks

Nothing on the horizon: Cleveland Browns, San Diego Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills

The reason I put the Cardinals as a sleeper is UNTIL they solve the QB position we will not be contending for a SB ring. If we can get good QB play I would def move us into the knocking on the door category, maybe even runner up. This team is going to be a defensive minded group with a dangerous offense as well.

So, what are your thoughts? Where do the teams who HAVEN'T won a SB ring belong?
