The Cardinals are one of the league's hardest working teams. They practice hard and they show great effort on the field. Watching their linebackers fly around in practices and games is a testament to how much the players believe in Dave McGinnis system.

The question with the Cardinals is always talent. Is there enough. The NFL establishes a system in which the worst teams get the best draft choices in order to help the competitive balance.
