A look around the web at the Arizona Cardinals.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

While the beginning of the week is usually slow, we are really focusing on not just the Arizona Cardinals, but their opponents during the season.

Every Monday, leading up to the season, we will take a look at the non NFC West teams on the schedule and what they are up too.

During the season, I am going to have a daily notes from the enemy section from Wed-Mon (or Tues for the Monday Night Football affair) but leading up, at least we can have a little insight into the opponents.

Of course, we will have our daily Arizona Cardinals links as well.

Let's get to it.
