At first I was like... really bwgood, you think the Cards are only gonna win 8 games? Then I looked to the left and saw you're a Chargers fans.

Better than the Chargers thats for sure. Predict that they will finish a close second in the division and remain neck and neck with the Seahags to clinch a wildcard. If the wife beater DBag can get reinstated that would greatly help

I expect playoffs again this time with no 4th string QB

A's over Royals. Lester and experience will prove that he's worth the trade.

Tigers winning it all. Tigers are, imo, peaking at the right time.

I think the Cards are going to grab a wildcard spot with 12 wins. 49ers dropped off a cliff, Seattle did get better, so did the Rams, but I don't think enough to pass the Cards. Hoping they can keep a healthy QB this season.

Not a Cards fan, if I'm allowed to weigh in and vote :wink: .
Looking at the poll, I was teetering between 9 & 10. Went with 10. Another solid season for them, and a playoff birth. Getting your starting quarterback... back, is an awesome thing. When your starting quarterback is a midlevel player, coming off a huge knee injury(again), that makes it more difficult. Alas they seem to have enough talent around the roster that I see 10 as a possibility and a playoff appearance for them in 2015.

No, I don't. On the Cards forum, which is dead, I went from 7-13, just because you never know in the NFL. I also think the schedule is pretty tough (though easier with SF likely being much worse). Rams should be better. I would probably guess 11 or maybe even 12, but I'll have to look back at their schedule.

And I became a fan of the Chargers as a kid in the early to mid 80s, before the Cards were in AZ, but once they moved to AZ, I became a secondary fan but I don't just switch loyalties completely. I pull for them both. I watch all of each team's games every year.

I think probably better than the Chargers IF Palmer can stay healthy. The Chargers, with a better OL, and protection for Rivers, and Melvin Gordon could be much improved though, so I think both teams could be really good if healthy. Particularly for the Chargers, their secondary.

If Carson stays healthy and dwash only gets like a 4 game suspension, 13 wins. Also, we sweep Seattle.

Yeah, no. "For sure" makes it seem as if the Cardinals are way better than the Chargers or something and even despite the contract dramas of Rivers, and Weddle and the suspension of Gates and the uncertainty of the team remaining in SD, the Cards and Chargers are either about equal or Chargers have an edge with Rivers who can actually be relied on to stay healthy even with the worst of O lines.

I think we win 10 or 11 games but keeping Carson upright is key. Also, the big unknown is we're going on our 3rd DC in 3 years and you never really know how that will turn out.

1 SEP 13 1:05PMMST SAINTS 1-0
2 SEP 20 10:00AMMST AT BEARS 2-0
3 SEP 27 1:05PMMST 49ERS 3-0
4 OCT 4 1:25PMMST RAMS 4-0
5 OCT 11 1:05PMMST AT LIONS 4-1

8 NOV 1 11:00AMMST AT BROWNS 6-2
9 NOV 8 BYE
10 NOV 15 6:30PMMST AT SEAHAWKS 6-3
11 NOV 22 2:05PMMST BENGALS 7-3
12 NOV 29 2:05PMMST AT 49ERS 8-3
13 DEC 6 11:00AMMST AT RAMS 8-4
14 DEC 10 6:25PMMST VIKINGS 9-4
15 DEC 20 11:00AMMST AT EAGLES 9-5
16 DEC 27 2:25PMMST PACKERS 10-5
17 JAN 3 2:25PMMST SEAHAWKS 11-5

That is a brutal close to the schedule. They better have at least 9 wins before week 15, and hopefully Palmer is still healthy. My predictions have them going undefeated at home, but I'm sure they drop 1 or 2 of those and maybe win 1 or 2 I have them losing.

I think 10-12 wins.

Palmer being healthy is the key

Players to watch for this year:

Daryl wAshington (if he can play), Michael Floyd, Troy Niklas, David Johnson, Jonathan Cooper, Patrick Peterson (back from health issues) Tyrann Mathieu.


Hope the Cards sign Jermaine Gresham he would upgrade the TE spot if he's healthy!

Gotta be at least 3-1 by the Detroit game. Love playing the Saints so early.

Cards sign Jermaine Gresham 1 year deal.

Great signing hope he can stay healthy and we can resign him for a few years until Niklas is ready to take over

It's weird the over/under for the Cards is 8.5. I created an over/under challenge if you'd like to participate. viewtopic.php?f=139&t=1402148#start_here
