NFC West Preseason

Week 1 so far
AZ - Palmer looked good, threw complete deep passes into tight coverage. Definite upgrade for AZ that could return their receivers into a big challenge for us again.

SEA - Wilson was typically the escape artist, but his passes were off the mark. Didn't look like the smooth threat he was last year.
So, if this doesn't reflect how irrelevant/skewed WEEK ONE PRE-SEASON stats can be, I'm not sure what does . . .

Seattle Seahawks ‏@Seahawks
Through Week 1 of preseason, @7tjackson is the @nfl's top-rated passer (158.3): http://shwks.com/23cv ; #BingHawks

Lol Lisa speaks the truth here.
Well being a thread specifically about the preseason, with no consideration of translation to the regular season. This is very relevant.

Palmer will make the Cards somewhat relevant, and it was funny to see Wilson be a little off. They say Kaep is nothing but a one-trick pony, if Wilson couldn't scramble around in the backfield, he'd be nothing.
So after 1 preseason game:
NFC West Power Poll
1) SF - Starters looked great, depth - not so much
2) SEA - Starters didn't play great, but their depth did
3) ARI - Carson Palmer could be make Arizona much more formidable than expected, their defense should be stifling
4) STL - looked pretty bad against the Browns, Bradford had a nice pass to Givens, but overall not impressive
Honey Badger had a sack and deflected a pass in his first game. He could be a steal if he can keep himself out of rehab and on the field.

Carson Palmer sucks. He makes terrible decisions and will continue to make them when the season begins and he faces real defensive strategies.

You're probably right, but it's pretty obvious that Palmer is an upgrade to whoever they had last year, so ARI might win a few more games. Maybe like ~7games
