All the talk of the Arizona Cardinals slipping from top spot in the NFC West might be a little premature after they picked up 9 times pro bowler Alan Faneca from the NY Jets. Faneca is an upgrade for them at Guard and although at 33 he is not a long term cure he has a season or two left in him and will be a great help to Matt Leinart as he attempts to make the step up from bit part player to starting QB. This looks a good signing and combined with a fairly good performance in the draft means that Arizona will not be whole lot worse a team this season despite several high profile departures.
