The Cardinals, according to one long time NFL man, think the Cardinals nailed it with Steve Wilks.

It has been quite the offseason for the Arizona Cardinals.

Their overall turnover has lead to a number of prognosticators being down on the team heading into the season.

Well, don't count Gil Brandt among those pundits:

It's quite the departure from what a number of publications think, but seeing the Arizona Cardinals first hand, Brandt has a much different take on the Cardinals moving forward.

He sees the obvious questions, namely the health of Sam Bradford and whether or not the offensive line will improve, but he also sees that the team has talent.

Offensively, Bradford is an accurate quarterback who can thrive under the guidance of Mike McCoy, while it should give Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson even more opportunities to dominate.

Brandt also noted how talented a player rookie Chase Edmonds looks to be, which will take some of the pressure off of David Johnson in 2018.

Not much is expected of the Arizona Cardinals in 2018, but Gil Brandt sure likes the direction the team is going.
