NFL Offseason Preview -- Arizona Cardinals

Arizona Cardinals 2011 Record:  8-8 PPG For: 19.5 (24th) PPG Against:  21.8 (17th) 2012 Cap Number:  $118,787,639 Draft Position:  #13 Overall Pick There are teams that make no sense, and then there are the Arizona Cardinals. Tell me, how does a 5 win team botch its biggest offseason move and still finish with 8 wins? How is that even possible? Yet, that’s exactly what the Cardinals did in 2011. The high profile acquisition of Kevin Kolb was supposed to be the catalyst for improvement, but it was seemingly everything other than Kolb that led to the uptick in wins. In fact, it’s possible that Kolb isn’t even the best QB on the roster! That dynamic will certainly be a major subplot of the Cardinals 2012 season, as the team tries to build off its magnificent 7-2 finish.
