As much as we would like to believe that the Cardinals air attack will continue to dominate, we need to come to grips with one small fact: Matt Leinart is not Kurt Warner. Leinart's ability to start in the NFL (including his maturity and leadership) is simply an untested hypothesis at this point. Count me among the believers that the past few years behind a Hall of Fame QB have produced a different Leinart than we saw start under Dennis Green. But let us also be realistic. Kurt Warner kept the Cardinals competitive with his ability to make plays with his arm. His ability to read the field was a bit under appreciated, in part because so much credit was attributed to his talented receiving corps. Leinart will not be able to make those plays yet. Offensive production will have to come from somewhere else and the defense will have to make sure that "track meet" games are a thing of the past. The running game will bear the bulk of the offensive burden as the Cardinals will undoubtedly shift to a more traditional balance of run/pass plays. Call it "Steelers football" or smashmouth football, but expect the demand placed on Matt to be closer to that of Joe Flacco rather than Joe Montana. With Warner at the helm and Fitzgerald/Boldin at WR, it was easy to feel like the Cardinals were never that far out of a game. If the Cardinals have any chance of taking the division next year, it will be behind a more disciplined and conservative brand of football - offensively and defensively.
