So Darnell Dockett tweeted this morning that he wanted the Cardinals to get some prime-time games this season so he and some of his fellow defenders can kick some butt in front of a national audience. It got me thinking just how will the Cards be viewed by the NFL with the schedule.
The schedule, by the way, should be out at some point this week. This is usually the week it happens. I think it’ll be before the draft and it’s hard to believe the league will wait until the week of the draft, when everyone will be building up toward that event. That gives the league a few more days before running into obstacles.
As for the team’s prime-time value, last season the Cards got three big-time games, including two on Sunday nights. But that was coming off the Super Bowl, and that was with Kurt Warner. But Matt Leinart still has marquee value, and the Cards do have some opponents that would work: the Cowboys, Chargers, Vikings and Saints, and maybe a Leinart-Pete Carroll reunion against Seattle.
