Just a few years ago, the Arizona Cardinals were competing for a Super Bowl title. Now, people are impressed with simply eight wins.
The difference...a quarterback.
During training camp, all eyes will be on the QB battle brewing between Kevin Kolb and John Skelton, but I'll be watching rookie sixth-rounder Ryan Lindley.
Lindley has the size and arm strength every NFL quarterback coach looks for, but lapses in his accuracy and his average mobility saw him slide to the Cards.
At San Diego State, Lindley enjoyed three straight seasons of over 3,000 yards passing while throwing at least 20 touchdowns in the same span. His accuracy, however, was never really there and he completed just over 55 percent of his passes with the Aztecs.
Lindley is a project so it's doubtful whether he contributes this year, but if Skelton and Kolb both struggle, the Cards could look to Lindley as the QB of the future.
