Default How realistic are the Cardinals Super Bowl hopes?

A team that surprised everyone at the end of last year is having another solid year (better than last year) and might even catch the Vikings in the race for 2nd in the NFC. They have played surprisingly well on the road and have a much better running game than last year.

Wins:

@ Jax (7-5)
@ Hou (5-7)
@ Sea (5-7)
@ Nyg (7-5)
@ Chi (5-7)
@ Stl (1-11)
vs Sea (5-7)
vs Min (10-2)

Losses:

vs Ind (12-0)
vs Car (5-7)
vs Ten (5-7)
vs SF (5-7)

With 3 winnable games left @ SF, @ Det, vs Stl, vs GB

Could realistically finish at 12-4 or 11-5

Is this team a Super Bowl contender or pretender?

Contender. A grizzled vet like Kurt Warner won't be intimidated by playing in a hostile environment such as New Orleans/Minnesota. That team is fast, and built for those artificial surfaces.

All the pressure is on those teams I mentioned. The Cardinals are being overlooked.

http://www.vegas.com/gaming/futures/superbowl.html

they had 10/1 odds before yesterday's win over the Vikes...

I bet that win might have pushed it all the way up to around 5/1


so in other words, there is a "decent chance"...

NFC is much much stronger than last season for sure. There's going to be some tough teams they'll have to go through but they've shown that they can beat a few of them in a regular season environment already. They're definetly in with a decent shot.

Contenders. But the NFC is stacked this year. Saints, Cardinals, Packers, Vikings, Eagles, and Cowboys all have squads that can make the super bowl if they are hot in the playoffs.

Man! Before yesterday I'd say it's between Vikings and Saints without an argument. But we saw what happened last night. Cardinals are hella dangerous.

Too inconsistent. I wouldn't be surprised if they lose next week against the Niners. Then again they'll be on the road so who knows lol.

The cardinals are definitely a dangerous team, and although they are not as complete as other "contenders", I think they have a chance to go the distance. They have legit playmakers on both sides of the ball. Their biggest problem is the questionable ground game, both Hightower and Wells are solid runners but have have not held on to the ball very well this season.

I like the Cardinals. I really do. Unfortunately, they're in the NFC and that means that they're competition for the Packers, which obviously comes into play. I will only cheer for the Cards to make another run to the Super Bowl if the Packers are knocked out.

I do see them as contenders. They have a ton of weapons and have held their heads high even after tough loses. Fitzgerald and Boldin are just ridiculous. Such an entertaining team to watch.
