Cardinals season upon us

I decided today I’m going with DirecTV in order to insure the NFL Sunday Ticket package and NBA League Pass. It’s basically like living at home in Phoenix that way, with every Cardinals and Suns game being televised locally. Combine that with the Internet and Twitter and this season could be of epic proportions, with great opportunities. One thing is certain. Fantasy football will be unlike any other for myself this season.

Many Cardinals players appear primed and ready to make another run at the Super Bowl. Both Darnell Dockett and Karlos Dansby have publicly stated that their contract issues are not a problem, nor will they be a distraction this season. Not much has been heard of from Anquan Boldin but he is expected in camp. How soon the organization and Boldin can work out a new contract extension is still up in the air, as Rod Graves has stated other players still remain higher priorities.

Larry Fitzgerald had his last day of off-season workouts in Minnesota before heading out to Arizona to begin the season. Fitz was listed yesterday as the #4 best hands in NFL history, with the likes of Cris Carter, and Jerry Rice.

Winning the NFC West shouldn’t even be a goal for the Cardinals, it should just be the norm. As weak as the West is, they have an opportunity to put a strangle hold on the division title for a while. This season will go a long way in determining if the Cardinals were merely a fluke last postseason, or a perennial force to be reckoned with.
