Is This the Year the Arizona Cardinals Win the NFC West?

Is this the season the Arizona Cardinals capture the NFC West crown?

The Red Birds were in the playoff hunt until the final game of the 2013 season when they dropped a home contest to the 49ers. They made a five-game improvement from the previous season, finishing with a 10-6 record.

Arizona was the only team to beat Super Bowl champion Seattle at Century Link Field, the loudest stadium in the NFL. The Cards have a lot of momentum heading into the 2014 campaign but things just got a lot tougher now that they lost Darnell Dockett for the season with a torn ACL.

No one said it was going to be easy. So is this year the Cardinals break through?

"The time is now," Arizona's star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald told espn.com. "We know we have to take care of our division first. That's the fastest way to get in the playoffs. That's where our goal is — to win the NFC West."

Last offseason's overhaul of the Red Birds roster was looked at as a bridge from one coaching regime to another. This year, however, the Cardinals' offseason moves have been geared to filling specific needs that can put them over the hump.

Losing Darnell Dockett for the Season a Huge Setback for Arizona Cardinals

So now where do the Arizona Cardinals go from here after losing defensive lineman Darnell Dockett for the 2014 NFL season with a torn ACL?

That's the questions all Cardinals fans want to have answered.

There is no other way to put it – losing Dockett is a tremendous blow to the Red Birds. Not only was he a productive player in defensive coordinator Todd Bowles' 3-4 scheme but he was one of the emotional leaders of the team.

Now that Karlos Dansby is with the Cleveland Browns and Daryl Washington is suspended for the entire 2014 season, the Red Birds defense has some major holes to fill.

"He's a great player, a guy we count on day in and day out to be a leader and take us where we want to go," Calais Campbell told espn.com. "… Hopefully he'll come back soon."

Not until next year. For now, other Cardinals will have to step up. Second-year linebacker Kevin Minter took one snap last season and former Steeler Larry Foote is now 34 years old. Rookie Kareem Martin is most likely going to take Dockett's spot in the 3-4 alignment.

Arizona Cardinals’ Jaron Brown Having a Superb Preseason So Far

Jaron Brown knows there are no guarantees.

However, if the Arizona Cardinals wide receiver continues to shine like he has so far in training camp and preseason game action, then there will be no doubt that he will make the opening day roster.

The undrafted rookie out of Clemson made the team last year but he has really impressed this summer with a great training camp and a sensational performance last Saturday against the Vikings.

Brown made a tremendous leaping catch for a 35-yard reception (pictured above) and also showed his speed and power by catching a screen pass and streaking 51 yards down the left sideline. It was impressive and combine that with his special team skills and Brown looks like a lock to open the season against the San Diego Chargers in Game One.

“I’m just trying to get better,” Brown told the team's website. “I’m just trying to improve from last camp.”

Brown's stellar play gives the Red Birds some excellent depth at the wide receiver position. In addition to All Pro Larry Fitzgerald and rising star Michael Floyd, the Cardinals also have Ted Ginn Jr. and rookies Walt Powell and John Brown. That's an impressive group of talented wide outs for veteran quarterback Carson Palmer to throw to this season.

Arizona Cardinals Hoping Rookie Kareem Martin Can Bolster Pass Rush

By Steve Smith

The Arizona Cardinals drafted defensive end Kareem Martin in the third round of this year's NFL Draft with an eye towards helping their pass rush.

The University of North Carolina product has a world of potential and should bolster Arizona's pass rush as the 2014 regular season moves along. Martin has three tackles in two preseason games so far but it should not be too long before he starts adding some sacks to his resume.

The talent is there. He just needs some seasoning.

All rookies do.

Let's take an updated look at his profile via nfl.com:

Strengths Has very long arms. Good eyes and recognition — senses screens, locates the ball and understands contain. Strong-handed to punch and extend. Good short-area burst. Uses his length to force his way into gaps. Flashes power potential. Nice closing speed. Wrap tackler. Football smart. Durable three-year starter. Solid personal and football character with leadership traits. Showed explosion at the combine, recording a 10-foot, 9-inch broad jump (best among defensive linemen) and a 35 1/2-inch vertical jump.
