    FA doesn’t look that great this year. Also 20th pick is going to be late .Fitz,Peterson,Dansby,Palmer,and Docket all have contract problems This is the off season that’s going to make or break Arians.

    Really hope we can find another gem late in the draft like Ellington.

    Hopefully that means the Seahawks and 49ers will draft after us. Those two teams have had so many first round picks (and many years with two in the first round) that they should be as good as they are. The rich don’t need to be getting richer. Thankfully the Rams, who probably have as many first-round picks as any NFL team in the last five years, haven’t clearly benefited from their picks like the others.

    Oh no. We’re going to end Peyton Manning’s career!

    Great season boys! This one stings, but if we have to go out like this it’s that much easier to live with. God bless the Arizona Cardinals football organization!

    Proud of you Cards! You played tough all the way till the end!

    Looking forward to next year! Maybe we will be the first team to ever play in the Superbowl in there own stadium ?

    I know GM Kiem is already looking to upgrade some positions!
    IDK if Feely keeps his job?

    Lets resign Dansby to have him retire as a Card and redo PP contract as well !

    Cooper coming back will also help but the O-line did a descent job without him so we will only be better!

    Its curious who our 1st round pick will be?
    A Left tackle?
    A QB?
    A RB if we dont bring back Mendenhall?

    Cant wait for next season! Mahalo Darren for all you do all year round!
    Mahalo and Aloha!

    10 and 6 none and I mean none of us were guessing that finish. Players, coaches, and front office staff what an amazing group!

    O snap that’s a hard schedule!. I see about 6 losses in it. More if we don’t play well. Lets hope our division does not dominate us so much next year.

    RE: Schedule

    That’s what everyone said about this year’s schedule, then the Texans and Falcons fell off the table. You never know what the season will bring.

    Man it hurts right now but we weren’t going to go anyway because the bucs got smashed. The cards played all the way through though and they should be congratulated for that. I’m going to try to go to the Dallas game God willing with hopefully Manziel, Bridgewater, Vick, or Cutler or somebody like that steering the ship at QB! Carson played better than I thought as the season went on but still way too many mistakes for a 10-year veteran to make. The 49ers are a bad ass football team and a play here and a play there can doom you versus them but we fought tooth and nail with those men which they should be proud about seeing that they are the NFC Champions until somebody knock them off.

    Great, hard-fought game; congrats to the 49’s! Now go on and represent the NFC West (the “New Black and Blue” division) in the playoffs. May the best team (SeaHawks or 49″s) win the super bowl and make us all proud in the “Best division in the NFL.” We’ll be back…

    Please don’t have us playing SF and Seattle on a short week again next year. That was a killer! Only thing worse would have been if they were both away games.

    First of all, this is a team to be extremely proud of. To finish at 10-6 is fantastic and if, and it’s a big if, we can retain some of our key players, 2014 should be even better. Hats off to all the players, coaches, management and ownership for putting a competitive team on the field and as Doc said, “no longer be the punks of the NFC West.” Thanks to you Darren for posting great columns and stories all season long. Happy New Year to everyone!

    @grabling Why do you hate Boldin??? It isn’t his fault the Bidwell’s chose to let him go rather than pay the man his just due. You can’t be mad at the man for wanting to play well as he continues his career. That’s just the business of football.

    It is so hard to know how teams will be from year to year.

    Who would have thought the redskins, giants and falcons would be that bad?
    The chargers and chiefs to be that good?

    We won’t know if this is a tough schedule or not till we play it.

    The two things I do know;
    The raiders are always bad
    We will play 6 playoff teams ( 8 games total) out of the 16 games.

    On a side note;

    Anyone notice that the horrible coach Whiz is in the playoffs?

    Anderson, Hall, Lindley, Kolb, Skelton replaced by Philip Rivers can get a coach back on the right track. Remember when people were saying Rivers was done?

    Many of the personnel decisions made here under the Whiz watch were terrible. But, I think he showed why he was a superbowl coordinator with the steelers , a superbowl coach with us and now back to the playoffs as a OC.

    Whiz, if you get another HC position, stay out of the front office and draft rooms.

    Look, we had a great season this year 10-6, and we missed the playoffs. But we will get better and hopefully win the division next year. BA has brought class to this team, and I’m sure that many clubs were fearful that they would play this team. Look, #!1 in rush defense, defense number 6 overall, upgrades here to the offense would be great. GO CARDS!!!!!!!!!

    Great year to be a Cards fan!! Very proud. We have the franchise coach— just need the franchise QB ( nothing personal Carson).

    Fun year to be a Cards fan. I figured they would be 8-8 and miss the playoffs. Can’t complain about 10 and missing the playoffs. Most of my friends said they would win 5 again. The brain trust of the team is so much better than the previous administration. Hope Keim can find some more FA bargains. Hope we can keep Bowles, but if he gets a HC shot somewhere, all the best to him. Sign Dansby!!!!
    San Fran and Seattle aren’t the boogie man that they were the last few years, we can compete with them. Thanks BA and gang for a nice season.

    Now I move back to being a Cubs fan, and since they will be out of contention about the time training camp rolls around, I will be ready to see red again this summer. Anyone projecting wins and losses based on the schedule at this point is crazy, but I am excited to be playing the NFC least.

    Absolutely needs 4-2 in thi tremendous division and a 12-4 overall. Could you be perfect?? I hope so..

    My daughter asked me earlier today if I knew the Cardinals schedule, did it look easy or tough, etc. And I said it really didn’t matter because the Cardinals ended this season looking like they could play with anyone. And I think that says it all. This team showed that it CAN play with the teams in its own division and that is where this all starts.

    Fact is, you can’t tell anything about the 2014 schedule because teams rise and fall every year and you can never see all of that coming until next year starts and teams show who they are. The Cards, Panthers, Eagles came out of nowhere this year and they ALL look legit going forward. The Falcons and Texans tanked worse than anyone could have imagined. So, I don’t bother looking at the 2014 schedule NOW and picking wins and losses. But if you believe your team can play with anyone, then the opponents don’t matter as much.

    And that feels pretty damn good to me!.
