This is the perfect time of year for teams that did not make the postseason to start planning for next season. Those teams are at somewhat of an advantage, because they have more time than Superbowl-bound teams to evaluate their current needs.
The Arizona Cardinals just happened to be one of those teams.
Head coach Ken Whisenhunt suggested that the Cardinals won't shuffle too many pieces on their roster this offseason.
"Usually, if you're not in the playoffs there's going to be a lot of changes with your team. With our team, you don't anticipate a lot of changes," Whiz said.
Despite Whisenhunt's optimism, Cardinals brass is surely working night and day on moves they will make in free agency and preparing for their 2012 draft strategy come April.
Here's a look into Arizona's war room, or at least what it should look like this offseason.
