PASSING OFFENSE: C - Kevin Kolb has developed some chemistry with Larry Fitzgerald, but there are questions elsewhere on the receiving depth chart. Tackles Levi Brown and Brandon Keith must prove they can protect.
RUSHING OFFENSE: C - The Cardinals showed some positive signs of improvement in the preseason. But until they do it in a regular season game, that means nothing. Beanie Wells looks lean and strong at running back.
PASS DEFENSE: C - It was bad last year and the corners are young and SS Adrian Wilson is playing with a biceps tear. New coordinator Ray Horton must find a way to generate pressure.
SPECIAL TEAMS: B - The return game with LaRod Stephens-Howling (kicks) and Patrick Peterson (punts) should be dynamic. Kicker Jay Feely is as reliable as they come. Coverage remains a question.
COACHING: C - Mike Miller will call all the plays for the first time. Horton calls defenses for the first time. Maybe they both will be successful but they are unproven now.
