Arizona is coming off a two year run where it had a combined record of 19- 13, won two NFC West division titles, won a NFC Championship, and was one defensive play away from winning a Super Bowl. When you look for reasons why most experts are predicting a down year for the Cardinals in 2010 it simply comes down to one person; Kurt Warner.

With Warner as their starting quarterback the Cardinals almost always had a chance to win. In the last two years at the helm for the Cardinals he started 31 of 32 games. In that time he threw for 8,336 yards completing 66.5 percent of his passes. He threw 56 TD’s against 28 interceptions and had a passer rating of 95. His decision to retire after last season is the primary reason the Cardinals will struggle on offense this year.

Another major loss to the offense was WR Anquan Boldin, who was traded to Baltimore in the offseason. He was second on the team last season with 84 receptions for 1,024 yards.

With these two players gone it will be up to QB Matt Leinart and WR Larry Fitzgerald to find a way to replace the huge chunk of offensive production that has been lost. Leinart had the opportunity to be the starter once before and lost the job to Warner back in 2007. This time around it will be Derek Anderson, who was released by Cleveland, who will most likely get the call should Leinart fail again.

One area where Arizona might actually be better will be on defense. Last year the Cardinals finished ranked 20th overall; 23rd against the pass and 17th against the run. Their 20.3 average points per game allowed was 14th in the league. This offseason, they used their first two picks in the draft to get DT Dan Williams in the first round and LB Daryl Washington in the second to add some much needed depth to their front seven. To add some depth to the secondary, Arizona recently signed S Aaron Rouse, who was with the Giants and CB Rashad Barksdale, who was with the Packers.

Arizona was an excellent road team last season, posting a 6-2 record as opposed to a 4-4 record at home. Against the spread the Cardinals were 9-7 overall; 4-4 at home and 5-3 on the road. In looking at this year’s schedule, their two toughest road games will be against San Diego in Week 4 and Minnesota in Week 9. They also host New Orleans and Dallas, which are hard teams to beat regardless of where you play the game.

No matter how you add it up, it is hard to imagine this team pulling out a winning record in 2010. The loss of Warner and Boldin could easily reduce last year’s 10 win total by three or four games as this team is no longer built to play from behind.

2010 Prediction: 3rd in the NFC West
Win Total: UNDER
