  • Darnell Dockett became the latest target of Drew Rosenhaus' "tweets" as his agent stated "While the Cardinals insist they won't trade him, I feel several teams would give up a 1st round pick and more for my client Darnell Dockett." This of course followed up the 'tweets' concerning a Boldin trade and it's clear that Rosenhaus isn't ready to give up the fight.
  • The Arizona Republic covers Herman Johnson's plans for the off season including a 'hard core' training regime developed by John Lott and Johnson's goal to weigh in at 350 to 355.
  • Darren Urban talks about the relationship between new quarterbacks coach Chris Miller and Kurt Warner. Warner is reportedly excited about working with a coach who has played the position in the NFL and he thinks it'll help in transforming game preparation to game planning.
  • As it's already been noted in a previous comment, Len Pasquarelli is applauding the Cardinals for standing up to Boldin and Dockett. He looks at both situations including how much money each player received when they signed their deals (versus what they would have received under their original contracts) and why the Cardinals are correct in making them wait. 
  • Mike Sando reveals his "Pro Bowl prospects" for the NFC West in 2009 and the Cardinals have eight possible Pro Bowlers, although the Niners lead the way with ten players. For the Cardinals he lists: Neil Rackers, Larry Fitzgerald, Kurt Warner, Adrian Wilson, Anquan Boldin, Sean Morey, Darnell Dockett and Bertrand Berry.
  • Matt Bowen of the National Football Post has a spring playoff preview but he leaves the Cardinals on the outside looking in, with the Seahawks winning the West.
  • Peter King has his first power ranking of the season and the Cardinals come in at 12th, although they are the highest NFC West team (Seattle is second at 19th).
  • Also from SI, Don Banks lists ten second year players who need to step up this year and Cardinals sophomores hold down the top two spots. While I agree that Calais Campbell needs to have a big year though I'm not so sure that the success of the team hinges on Early Doucet.
  • Banks also lists six teams (three from each conference) that missed the playoffs last year that will visit the post season in 2009 and another six teams that won't repeat as playoff participants. As you'd expect the Cardinals are on the "not to repeat" list and the Niners are a team that is playoff bound according to Banks. Just for kicks he also predicts that the Colts miss out on the playoffs.
