Overall a pretty good analysis. On paper, their O is better and our D's could be considered even overall. This is why I think that first game is really going to dictate how the season will fare.
If we do well against the Cards, I see it being an 8+ win season, while doing bad may very well result in less than 7 wins. They have a very highpowered offense, and this should give us a gauge of where we stand in mellowing out their O while keeping our D consistent....
I think that our D is better overall, and we will be able to keep their offense in check if ours can run the ball and control the clock. I think our D can force some turnovers vs. az.

I somewhat agree with your analysis. But sometimes it's not about the individual players, but how the offenses and defenses perform as a unit with their respective coordinators.
The Cardinals have a better offense than us, but we look like we have a running game that will wear down defenses and keep the opponent's offenses off the field. I imagine we'll win the time of possession battles in most games. Also, if we were to lose Frank Gore, I have some confidence in Coffee, Sheets, and Robinson to carry the load. If the Cardinals were to lose Kurt Warner, their offense is just about done.

I think you gave some of their players too much credit. chike okeafor is a great defensive player? the same dominique rodgers cromartie that just got roasted by the packers is a future probowler? their d that got slaughtered to the tune of 38 points in one half to the packers is even with ours that went toe to toe with a very talented offense? i agree with some of what you said on offense but some of the defensive stuff you got in there is ridiculous.

Expect Warner to miss some games
The year after his first Super Bowl missed 5 games
The year after his second Super Bowl missed 9 games
Matt better be ready
